I Converted !!

08-02-2010 04:28 AM by dustbunny | 10 comments »

From one of my earlier blogs, you may know that I have a Grizzly 24” dual drum sander, an awesome Craigslist score. The original sander comes with felt on the drums an you roll the paper onto it. I have been doing this since I got the machine. I find the paper likes to wander then tear. I have even had assistance in getting the tensioner as tight as I possibly can, the paper still likes to roam. Last May when I went to Grizzly tent sale, I ordered the hook and loop conversion kit for...

Easy. Elegant Wooden Box Hinge #1: I could kick myself

06-23-2011 07:26 AM by shipwright | 58 comments »

A few months ago I spent many many hours trying to perfectly align a set of “box joint hinges” for my project ” A Little Cabinetree” After I finally got them working I installed them on the edges of the MDF sides and doors and then veneered over the whole works. The only good part was that there were enough left over prototype parts that I could make a hinge for my next project from the cast-offs Then this week I was making a tea box for a friend and when...

Simple Jigs and Techniques #1: Simple Precision Arc Inlay Jig

06-20-2012 12:44 AM by shipwright | 24 comments »

I had the need this afternoon for a way to cut a curved groove for a veneer inlay. It needed to be absolutely accurate and easy enough that even I couldn’t screw it up. A half hour later I had this little jig. I thought someone else may find it useful. The first photos are self explanatory and show the simple construction and assembly of the base and pivot arm. The featured performer is one of my personal favourite Harbour Freight tools, the trim router. In the next photo ...

Router Marquetry

10-23-2010 08:05 PM by shipwright | 17 comments »

I hope this hasn’t been covered before. It is a technique that I designed myself but it can’t be original. If you’ve looked at my projects you’ll know that I like to play with veneers and inlays. The way I do it is a little different. I use a standard cheap ($30 ) router inlay bushing set, but instead of spending a lot of time “grounding out” the field piece I cut both the inlay and the field out of thick (1/8” +or-), shop-cut veneer. This is where th...

Handplanes #6: #7: confused? - good!

06-06-2012 10:17 PM by PurpLev | 19 comments »

So this is Post #6 in this series, but it’s about the #7… Still confused… oh boy. I guess I could rearrange the posts on this series to match up with the plane numbers, but that means that I’d have to post 110 posts in this series if I ever want to mention the Stanley 110 plane… maybe I’ll just keep it simple and as is :) This post is about the #7 hand plane (Stanley #7) which is a jointer plane. it is the longest of the more popular hand plane (aside...

Drill press table and much more! #4: Drill press turning (making a plane knob) Blog

10-07-2010 11:51 AM by mafe | 22 comments »

Drill press turning Making a plane knob on the drill press challenge. Last week I needed a knob for a fence I was making for my no. 3 and 4 planes, and was ready to go to the lathe.- But decided to challenge myself by making it on the drill press, with the simplest means I could find (yes I’m a child).I also took pictures as I went along so I could share it with those who don’t have a lathe. This was how it turned out. A piece of wood, if you don’t happen to have a piece ...
