Walnut Bread Box with Marquetry #5: This Is the End ...

05-14-2014 03:56 PM by Harriman | 4 comments »

Well, I apologize to anyone who’s been following this project for taking so long to get pictures up of the finished bread boxes. I think they turned out pretty well. I put the cases together with hand-cut dovetails and I made the two pulls out of Ipe to match the knife handle in the marquetry. There are a couple of things I really like about the design. For one thing, the way the door is hinged allows it to stay open while you’re getting your bread out. Also, I decided ...

Board center gauge - wood version blog

Board center gaugewood version Ok I know I just posted the brass version, but since I could see there were great interest, I thought it would be fine with the wooden version also. Forgive me! This is a gauge I have seen boat builders use to mark center on both sides of boards when splitting them in half.The grooves will serve as a guide or the saw cut.So this was the wooden version that I made before the brass and dark wood, both work well.(This was made February 2011, just never posted...

Chamfer Plane

04-18-2012 11:50 PM by Brandon | 17 comments »

I decided to make a chamfer plane by adapting an old Stanley 220 plane. Now before anyone gets on my case for ruining a perfectly good 220, I should note that it was a $2 garage sale purchase that was rusted beyond recognition. I soaked the plane parts in Evaporust, but as you can see in the following picture, there was still severe pitting in the sole. The first thing I did was to drill six holes in the sole of the plane. Then I made the wooden strips that would guid...

In the Shop #4: Inspired to do something new... Hand-cut Dovetails

02-09-2011 05:09 AM by Hoakie | 28 comments »

Is it odd that every time I get a new power tool to perform a task, I get an urge to try and do it by hand as well? Anyway it seems to happen to me a lot. This year I received a dovetail jig for Christmas and was up and running cutting half-blind dovetails in no time. However, I have been wanting to learn techniques working with hand tools for a long time to expand my arsenal. Over the past few weeks I’ve been eying some of the entries to the Winter Challenge, the videos of the Ja...

Tight Weave the Down and Dirty

08-08-2010 07:16 PM by dustbunny | 15 comments »

Several people asked me to blog the process of the tight weave board.The original tight weave board was posted by degoose here as a blog. Larry Rocks !! I don’t actually have one to be made from the start right now, so I pieced together what I have to try to illustrate the process. In some places you will have to use a little bit of imagination, but I think it will be clear. Okay, the key to the weave or the tight weave boards is-1. lumber should be square2. cuts must be accurate3...
