Panel Cutting Jig

04-06-2008 08:08 PM by Dadoo | 22 comments »

A couple of whiles ago when I posted my lumber rack, some of the LJ’s inquired about my panel jig. I figured that if I ever needed to replace it, then it would be right to blog it for you. I’m not going to take credit for this as I have seen it somewhere else in one of the many woodworking mags. Just can’t remember which one! This jig is used lying on top of sawhorses or the bench to crosscut and rip large sheets of material. I say “material” because we’...

I built this jig, so I could mate two curved surfaces and have a clean glue joint. I used it on a dining table. I will post pictures of the table shortly. —Skip—

A new shop in the making #1: The planning stages

There is too much information, there is too little information and almost every step involves going out somewhere over the internet to gather up the basics. Suffice it to say that the learning curve, at least for me, is daunting. Here’s what I have learned so far: I wanted a sketch to show me the approximate positioning of this shed relatve...

Thicknessing drum sander - shop made

I’ve had a fancy for a thicknessing sander but a 10-20 inch model costs the equivalent of $1000 US over here and there’s no way I can justify that sort of spending so I looked into making one of my own. There’s no shortage of help to be had on the world-wide-web. The links I found useful include: Dominic’s Woodshop Kawika Ukulele Sander Ray Lanham Woodcentral Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery Mother earth The Woodshop Art Herrick Luthiers’ Friend Nick’s drum S...

Boxes #1: Making Wine Boxes... Father's Day Gifts

06-23-2007 04:10 PM by gizmodyne | 15 comments »

11th hourAt the last minute I got inspired by Caliper’s gift box. I had bought some quartersawn white oak for such a project but had too much on my plate with the end of the school year. I finished report cards last Friday and decided to work on a gift for my dad and my father in law. I had a gift subscription to Wood Magazine last year. I like their detailed plans but never like the woods they use in their projects. This is from the Dec 2006 Issue. I decided to use walnut and whi...
