Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #20: Veneering the lid and preparing the bandings

05-23-2015 01:18 AM by Patricelejeune | 9 comments »

Last time I posted I had glued down the boxes bodies with the inside already french polished I worked on gluing the marquetry panels to the trimmed to size lid My favorite moment is when you see it glued down right way up for the first time, it appears slowly while you remove the paper This glueing of the marquetry on both side had to be precise has they had to be perfectly centered as well as the right way up as when you open the box the owner will appreciate to g...

Thorsen House Cabinet #1: Project Overview

11-24-2014 01:51 PM by EläväPuu | 2 comments »

Hello everybody! </drnick> This is my opening post on Lumberjocks with a new project which I have seen done several times previously. I can squarely lay the blame for this one on Joe McGlynn, whose own derivation of the Thorsen House dining room cabinet planted the seed for my own attempt. I’m aiming to document my thought processes and decision-making through this blog, so hopefully it should bring something new to the table other than snapshots of work in progress. As of writing...

A Pair of Small Infill Smoothers #1: Let the games begin!

03-05-2015 03:29 AM by Ripthorn | 4 comments »

As some of you may have seen, I built a prototype of a small infill smoother (blog starts here). This went well enough that I decided to make one for myself from precision ground steel. Well, as it turns out, with the way lengths work for precision ground O1, I ended up buying enough for 3 small smoothers and 4 blades, which is perfect, since the prototype needs a blade. So off went my money and a few days later, a package arrived with the steel, some new drill bits, and a scriber. A go...

Tools, Jigs & Fixtures #1: Incremental Circle Cutting Guide

02-01-2015 12:35 AM by bobkberg | 2 comments »

As I mentioned in my Cajon project post, I had some trouble cutting a circle to PERFECTLY fit the inside diameter of the drum, so I stopped for a couple of weeks to figure out how to cut exactly the circle size I wanted, and if too big, how to cut it down. I had been using a piece of melamine coated particle board with lots of holes drilled in it for many years and it worked just fine. But you can’t drill small holes right next to each other in particle board, ...

G&G Blanket Chest Build #3: Making the template

12-24-2014 02:22 PM by Ottacat | 1 comment »

One of the interesting differences between Darrell Peart’s and Marc Spagnulo’s finger joint templates is that Darrell makes two templates – one for the back end’s and one for the sides, where Marc makes a single template. One Marc’s single template, one side is used for the back end’s and the other side is used for the sides. The reason Darrell uses two separate templates is that he makes the fingers 1/64” smaller their corresponding mating holes. Thi...

Making New Cocobolo Handles/Totes and Knobs for my Hand Planes -A How To

12-23-2014 12:25 AM by BigRedKnothead | 26 comments »

I got a wild hair to upgrade the wood on my Lie Nielsen planes from the stock cherry to cocobolo. There’s always more than one way to get the job done, but I’ll share my way. There’s lots of good pics along the way to help. So here goes. Safety note: Most all of us are at least mildly allergic to rosewood and other exotics. Where a mask….or you’ll wish you had. Just drilling cocobolo makes my eyes and nose itch. The Handles: You’ll want some 1×...

Complex Curve Veneered Box Series #2: Making the box Carcass and veneering

12-06-2014 06:35 PM by Matt Nudi | 9 comments »

So for the box itself, this is the basic sketchup model for what I’m going for. I am trying to model this after one of “RogerBean’s” projects, hi maple burl box. However I am adding a drawer into it so it will differentiate a little bit from his process. The hardest part will be the two meet ups of two curves that occurs on the front of the box. After some thinking, I came up with some basic dimensions and my thought process for how I was going to be able to add in...

Shop built Sliding table for Tablesaw #1: Building a sliding table for my Grizzly tablesaw

11-22-2014 10:19 PM by Todd Swartwood | 8 comments »

I have been wanting a sliding table for my tablesaw for quite some time. The thing that has kept me from starting this project has been the bearing system. I also have been researching a shop built CNC, and that is where I got the Idea for my linear bearings. This is the sliding Table mostly done This is the bearing system I decided to use: To make these bearings I started with some 3/4” aluminum I found at the scrap yard. First I cut all the aluminum 2”...

Lincoln Logs

10-15-2014 09:15 PM by SPalm | 20 comments »

I made two large sets of Lincoln Logs for the grandchildren. This is how I did it. There are a few steps involved so I used indexing stop blocks and such to make it more safe and repeatable. I basically followed some of the same techniques as this post on the web but changed a few things and added roofs. http://home.comcast.net/~pocket83/site/ Also I decided not to stain my sets as we kind of liked the clean pine look, and this is also completely non-toxic (and easier to make). I put to...
