Making an Adjustable Try Square

10-24-2013 01:18 PM by Tim Dahn | 22 comments »

Making an Adjustable Try Square is a pretty staight forward build, here are the parts: I chose rosewood for the handle, approx. 4” X 1/12” 1/2” Some brass, 5/16” rod,1/4” rod and 1” flat stock (about 1/16”)Brass inserts and screws 8-23 X 1 1/2” long. The handle must be flat and square if you want a square that is square on both the inside and outside reference. Check the width with calipers and get it exactly the same on each end, then...

Planes restored - Because I can. #9: Plane Restoration, roll it together with a Millers Falls #10

09-15-2011 03:27 AM by Don W | 30 comments »

So, I bought this bunch of planes in this pile which is shown with all the other weekend finds. Included at the bottom of the pile was this Millers Falls #10. NOTE: This blog is not a suggestion to strip every plane and repaint. I actually would suggest otherwise if the japanning is in reasonable condition. Some are not savable and I don’t like tools that look terrible. If you can save it, I’d recommend that. If not, strip it. I figured since this plane needed almost any...

bloodwood jewelry box #1: Ogee bracket feet

04-02-2010 12:14 PM by Walt M. | 4 comments »

I got the cove cut on the tablesaw, my first time to try this. Even though I took several passes at the final depth there was a lot of sanding to do( I would have liked to use a scrapper but don’t have one yet). I cut out a piece of 2×4 (the opposite profile) on the band saw for a sanding block. I also decide to use miniature ogee bracket feet. Making them would be a blog entry by it self as it took several steps to make them The little ding on the corner was some chipout...

Stickley / Jeff Jewitt Arts and Crafts Finish

04-15-2013 01:24 AM by pintodeluxe | 14 comments »

I wanted to recreate this Jeff Jewitt finish from Fine Woodworking #157, however the article didn’t list which formula was used. I consulted with Jeff, and it was Transtint Brown Mohogany dye, followed by McCloskeys Walnut stain. McClosky no longer makes stain, but sold to Valspar / Cabot. ---So I set out to make a sample board to achieve the rich, dark color I was after. ---The top colors are stain only, the middle colors are dye first then stain, and the bottom color is dye only. ...

A slight variation on Shipwright hinges

07-23-2014 02:18 AM by BobAnderton | 5 comments »

Shipwright showed how to make these cool integral wooden hinges for a box in this tutorial. http://lumberjocks.com/shipwright/blog/23989 I liked them a lot but it required planning ahead and cutting the hinge features in the back of the box before assembly. I wanted to be able to assemble a box and cut the lid off with the tablesaw and have the choice of making an integral hinge or using brass hinges later so I developed this slight variation. An example of the finished hinge is this pro...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #4: Separating The Top and Cutting a Hinge to Fit

05-27-2012 12:33 AM by Boxguy | 9 comments »

How do you make a hinge and fit it in a box so that it looks like this when you are done? You Could Use This!...My Hinge Station or a Hack Saw .. Just Browsing? If you want to casually breeze through this just read the dark print and look at the pictures. For more serious readers, I have included details in the fine print. Economics: Price is a major consideration if you are making boxes for sale. I simply can’t afford to put $35 or more into a set of fine brass hinges and m...

Decorative Molding: Constructing Shadow Boxes

01-18-2013 02:36 AM by Mark | 0 comments »

Hi All - The following video was shot a couple of months ago while in the midst of a pretty significant dining room renovation project. I show how I construct one of the shadow boxes as part of my overall trim work design for the room. I’ve come to find projects like these sort-of addictive; once I did the first one, I just kept going onto various other areas of my house. This room is not 100% complete yet… I’ll start on the hardwood floor this weekend. The video is ac...
