An Adjustable Height Odyssey – Why I built this workbench, and HOW IT WORKSCharlie Kocourek How it All StartedI had a few problems with my first workbench. It was too low for carving or for detail work, it was too high for assembly, it was also too high to sit behind my table saw, and it was difficult to move around. It was anything but ergonomic! After some thought, I concluded that an Adjustable Height Workbench could solve all of these problems. I then searched the int...

Side post : ancient wood finishing recipes from the French Masters (Boulle & Watin)

11-27-2017 10:05 AM by Sodabowski | 6 comments »

Hi Jocks, in a blog post from my buddy Shipwright, where he experiments with finishes and their relationship with colorfastness of the wood, I talked a bit about sandarac. LJ member Longcase contacted me by direct message to inquire about that stuff. Long story short, sandarac is the resin produced by a tree, and has been used for centuries for wood finishes, along with the other classics that are shellac, elemi, mastic, and the many essential oils like aspic. The guys at the C2RMF, whe...

Tutorial: Installing Side Rail Hinges

10-06-2017 09:01 PM by Ron Stewart | 3 comments »

If, like me, you are new to box making, you may be apprehensive about installing hinges. The number of options is large and bewildering and, with hinge installation being one of the final steps in the construction process, fear of ruining a nearly completed box is a valid concern. I’m not experienced enough to help you wade through all of the hinge options (Roger Bean’s excellent blog post Some Thoughts on Box Hinges might help with that), but I can can tell you how to inst...

Marquetry card table by John Linnell #1: A bit of history and building the frame

04-25-2016 02:10 AM by Longcase | 8 comments »

I remember the moment I became interested in marquetry, it was while on vacation in England that I visited Keddlestone Hall ,a National Trust property in Derbyshire and saw this card table. The table was made in 1765 by the cabinetmaker John Linnell The marqueteur who worked for the Linnell firm at the time was Christopher Fuhrlohg, who was Paris trained possibly in the Simon Oeben workshop. Fuhrlohg was a Swedish cabinetmaker who returned to his native country a few years later...

So on with the 3D router build. I have had this project complete for several months but realized I never post the updates on LJ’s. So all this is copy and pasted from my GJ thread.

Cutting and drilling the aluminum angle iron for the X axis runners. I clocked all the screws. Both sides done. This is simple work...

Making The Very Small Wood Hinge III

07-09-2017 04:26 PM by Dan | 6 comments »

Latest refinements on my small hinge making process. First, an upgrade on my router sled which allows better control and smoother sliding with excellent accuracy. That Ridgid router in the picture is still going strong after years of heavy use. Set up to plane maple hinge halves to 1/8”. I want to cut down the time it takes to make these so I need to develop standard procedures with detail. So, after planing they are cut to identical lengths and widths. When I am trimming thes...
