Small Projects #48: Jatoba Strong Box (in process)

06-14-2021 05:25 AM by Madmark2 | 2 comments »

Friend asked me to build a cash box. Something small enough to fit under a bed but still capable of holding significant amounts of cash in a neat and orderly fashion. Strong boxes have a long history. They are often metal banded and reinforced and are designed to resist attack. Being wood, fire can breach the structure. However, being a paper money storage strong box, fire will destroy the contents, defeating the purpose. I tried to think of every potential attack, smashing, prying, dro...

Punky Wood- More MIS-Adventures into Woodturning-5

06-13-2021 04:00 PM by MrWolfe | 5 comments »

Here are some recent pieces that are “works in progress”.I say that but the two that have finish on them are, well, finished. The unfinished bowl is very smooth and no cracks. I am learning to take more time with sanding and going through the grits. This was a fun and trouble free project (so far). This second bowl is from the same tree but I found some bug holes while turning and tried to chase them down. I finally stopped when I realized I wasn’t going to...

How to add pictures

06-13-2021 01:24 AM by Woodyvolt | 15 comments »

I have been trying to add pictures to a forum. I think I am doing it right but with no results. I have the pics in my picture folder on my computer and think I have been following the correct procedure, but never get the picture to appear in the assigned location. I would appreciate a step by step set of instructions to get the results that I am wanting. Thanks in advance.

Grapes & Vines, Carving & Marquetry #3: Dovetail, Mortise & Tenon, Carving the Apron

06-12-2021 04:40 PM by Dennis Zongker | 16 comments »

This table needs to go up and elevator to the 78th floor, so it needs to break down into two sections. The front apron will have a loose sliding dovetail spline joint. The center carving on the apron is carved while the joint is together, then will be taken apart so that it can be moved to its home when completed. This has been a really fun project so far. Next I’ll be carving the legs with grapes and leaves & Scrolls. Thank you for looking. Gluing up the front A...

Benchcrafted Split Top Roubo Workbench #4: Milling Top Boards

06-12-2021 01:00 PM by EarlS | 8 comments »

It’s a quiet Saturday morning with a cup of good coffee, I’m listening to John Prine, making it a perfect time for the next installment of the milling process for the Roubo bench. The Roubo bench plans call for a 4” thick split top, 24” wide, 87” long, with a front section, a gap stop, and a 12” back section, using laminated 8/4 boards on edge. The front section will have a cap on the end for the tail vise. The front laminate piece will be dovetailed i...

June 2021, leftover scraps of Ash, Box Project, maybe #3: Started on the corners

06-11-2021 01:38 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, 3 out of 4, anyway. Decided on how narrow to make these 4 boards..came up with 3-5/8” width…Tablesaw to rip 4 boards to that….squared the ends…wound up with a pair of 8” and a pair of 12” blanks.. Went through and jointed the edges a bit….one had a taper to it..HAD. We have ways.. Fancy Jointer..all because I want each pair to sit together in the vise….so I can do a bit of lay out work…at least on the two shorter ones.. h...

Eighteenth Century Cabinet #10: Change of Plans, Front Marquetry

06-10-2021 11:58 PM by shipwright | 14 comments »

I know I said I was taking a break to get back to sailing for the summer but there was a surprise in store for me.On April 26th I had my boat hauled out of the water for bottom paint and a couple of quick maintenance issues. It was to go back in on the 28th …….. but on the 27th this happened. They dropped a big power cruiser and the accident got a stop work order placed on the Travel Lift until it was inspected, cleared, and re-certified. It’s a long story but all that matters here is ...

Woodsmith CNC Router - Adapting it for Horizontal Milling #1: Milling Tenons

06-10-2021 10:57 PM by Mike_190930 | 0 comments »

Recently I’ve been learning through trial and error, mostly error, to make tenons with compound angles for building chairs. For me at least, this has turned out to be a skill that is not easily acquired. But, as a retired engineer, I retained other skills that have allowed me to sidestep the traditional methods of producing compound angle tenons (and mortices for that matter). Since I have a working CNC, it occurred to me that I could build some adapters for the CNC (described elsewhere ...
