Greene and Greene Curio Cabinet #2: Planning for cloud lifts

840 days ago by DynaBlue | 2 comments »

The Greene and Greene cloud lift is a detail that really stands out on this cabinet and makes it different than many of the other Arts & Crafts cases that I’ve seen. They really add a nice dimension to the cabinet and make it a stand out piece of furniture. That said, they are not the easiest things in the world to create so here is how I went about making them. You probably noticed in the picture that all the cloud lifts line up around the cabinet and misalignment will rea...

Building a drum/disc sander #5: Table assembly

868 days ago by WoodenSoldier | 3 comments »

Still working on the drum sander table. Coming along well, though I’ve broken a few taps and bits requiring me to scrap a couple of parts.So the table is two pieces of 3/4” MDF laminated together. I glued T-nuts into the sides to hold the side bars. One end of the table has a mechanism to adjust the tension on the conveyor belt. The side bars of the table are made from 3/8×1.5” aluminum bar stock. I machined the slot out using an end mill. The tension is a...

Vacuum Frame Press/Assembly Table

891 days ago by Ger21 | 4 comments »

Since it may be another 2 years before I finish this, I can’t really post it as a project, so it’s going here.I’ve been using my Joe Woodworker vacuum bag and press for about 10 years on and off, and have done a lot of veneering with it. (See my kitchen in my Projects). But I’ve always wanted to build a frame press, to make it easier to do larger parts, and make sure my veneered panels were flat.At the same time, I’ve also always wanted an assembly table, as I t...

"New Adventure "

957 days ago by Dennis Zongker | 31 comments »

My bench can sure get messy and a bit unorganized but it is all part of the fun. I have been busy building three new jewelry boxes one with, one without marquetry, and one for a customer. Making three of them at one time is taking longer then I expected, but it is way more productive. I can’t reveal too much but thought I would share a few sneak peeks photos on what I am working on. I have been really enjoying this new adventure in my woodworking. Taking what I am building and putti...

My Shop #2: Kerfmaker--Table Saw Set-up

1061 days ago by Kent Shepherd | 13 comments »

There has been much discussion on the Bridge City Kerfmaker, but I didn’t find where it was used on a table saw without using a sled with a stop. I am sure I just missed it, but here is my version of the set-up. The Kerfmaker references off a stop on a fence, which works very well for a fence on a radial arm saw or table saw sled. But using the table saw fence to cut slots for my box bottoms and lids, I discovered there was not reference point for the Kerfmaker. I made a simple block...

Homemade Drum Sander #1: Prototype Motor Lift

1069 days ago by Jeremy Greiner | 8 comments »

The last cutting board (still working on the video) I did made me long for a thickness sander. I’ve been wanting to build one for a while with the spare motor I have. I spent a few days prototyping out a motor lift system for a drum sander and here’s the video of the results. I learned that I needed to use thicker rods, but otherwise the general idea will work. I need to figure out a better mechanism to hold the ball bearings, and I need to figure out what I’m going ...
