Inlaid Wooden Hinges #1: Getting started

05-08-2012 08:48 AM by ruddy | 4 comments »

I had a few of the boxmakers asking for a tutorial blog on the method I have used to make inlaid hinges. This is a first for me so be gentle, pull up a chair and get a coffee. And ask any questions…....I like to make boxes and have done a few with conventional wooden hinges but I thought they were more suited for rustic designs when virtually added to the box as the last sequence when making the box. I played around with a few designs of flush mounted hinges and came up with the concept...

Shop Tool Projects #1: A Router Table with Rack and Pinion Linear Motion DRO Fence

02-01-2020 03:47 PM by teetomterrific | 16 comments »

It has been almost a year since I completed this shop tool build project so I’ve had some time to put this router table with rack and pinion linear motion DRO fence to use since I originally documented this build for posterity. It has worked out great in my shop and I’d have a tough time going backward and using my old router table now that I have this one. Teaser Video: ————————̵...

Wood hinges, Incra HingeCrafter

04-17-2018 12:11 AM by MrLaughingbrook | 4 comments »

I bought the HingeCrafter and did one practice set of hinges following the directions as closely as possible. All seemed to go well and indicate I could get better with practice. So, when I decided on wood hinges for my current project then I thought I’d make a wood hinge inventory using current project stock plus some exotics scraps to improve my skills and not have to relearn and practice with the jig for a while. 3/8 inch hinges. A few comments may help someone on a similar eff...

TIPS #3: Making kerfs, method 2

01-03-2018 06:26 PM by Dutchy | 4 comments »

For a long time I’m still like making wooden “toys”, but making a blog from every build can be boring. Not only for you but also for myself. Then I got the idea to make a TIP contribution of something that can be interesting for others. I have been influenced for a large part by others. So dont be surprised if you see what others have invented long ago. But if I know who invented it, I will mention it..This is the second description of kerf making. Soon I will describe another. ...

Model vehicles' kerf making.

12-31-2017 03:35 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 34 comments »

Gents, Ladies, Boys, girls, Jocks and Jockettes…. Someone asked how the door kerfs were made in models, Well there are many more different methods then there are hairs on my well adorned head. Nevertheless I thought I’d pluck out a hair and say a few words on how I kerf. Now contrary to my common practice, I’m warning you up front about reading all, in case you are not interested. For my solution, I employ the use of SketchUp, a laser cutter (can be substituted by C...

32 Ford working on the spoke wheels

07-26-2019 11:08 PM by htl | 11 comments »

Before I glue up the wheel wells I figured it would be a good idea to have the wheels so every thing lines up just right, so it’s wheel making time again. Here is where I got all my info for making spoke wheels, I do it a little different but this will give you all the info needed, I watched it 10 or more times before it all started to come together. There’s a hundred ways to do any thing but here’s what’s working for me right now for building spoke wheels. Dr...

Wooden Models #54: Sanding wheels then back to the car building

05-21-2016 02:55 AM by htl | 8 comments »

I started sanding the wheels with the sander then it hit me this is going way to slow, so the shop smith to the rescue. I would have been sanding for hours but with the ss or any drill press I had them sanded and perfect in an hour, and since it was so easy I took more time with them to get out all the sanding marks. I routed around the rim of the test tire and rim and stained it just to get a look see and didn’t really like the look, but went back and stained the whole ti...

04-12-2019 11:24 AM by Jason1974 | 10 comments »

Here’s another update for you guys. I used a 1/16” straight router bit for the kerfs and I made a template for making the kerfs for the doors and windows. I am going to put the gas cap in a different location. I want my model to have different features than T&J’s.........................Thanks for watching!
