Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #15: Jennings Style Auger Bit Box

06-08-2019 02:23 AM by Bill Berklich | 3 comments »

The lure of vintage hand tools is like no other. Mostly be because they are small, storeable, transportable, are still useful and functional and as well as affordable. I’ve had a fist full of Irwin and Russell Jennings bits homeless stacked in a drawer. With the new Box Joint Jig and the fact that I was already setting up for the #45 chest I decided that I wanted a Russell Jennings style chest to secure them. Thanks to several of the LJ’ers on the Vintage Drills of Your Dre...

Make a catchall box

03-18-2019 06:06 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

This weeks project I replace a cheap flimsy box with a nice decorative wooden box. I call it a catchall box, because it will literally catch any thing I decide to put in it from a wallet to camera gear. Check out the video and consider subscribing for more content. I post Wednesdays and Sundays and include woodworking, automotive/small engine, and tool reviews. Thanks for checking it out. View on YouTube

The Box-From-A-Block Jig

02-04-2019 07:16 AM by Matt Snyder | 6 comments »

This is a jig I made that allows me to make a small box from any size block of wood (within reason). The appropriately sized frame pieces mount to the walnut sliders and the whole jig mounts to my router table. I was able to route out 13 blocks in less than 20 minutes. I decided to use the live edge slab from chainsaw milling the walnut I used for the sliders. That scrap slab had some cool spalting in it. Here’s a YouTube video of the build. I hope you enjo...

Adjusting the Incra IBOX in one pass — a foolproof method

01-04-2019 12:05 AM by Rich | 7 comments »

When I first got the IBOX a couple of years ago, I was extremely frustrated by it. It’s a beautifully engineered tool, but getting it set up was a nightmare. Their KISS calibration and setting the guide fingers to fit the kerf from the test cut was difficult to perfect because too much of it was subjective. You turn the red knob until the fingers come together… but how tight?. After making the test cut you open out the guide fingers to fit the kerf… but how tight? There was e...

So that was a draw it and later I cut it dow...

Grandsons in the workshop:: Continued.. #6: Grandsons..box build #5

07-20-2018 12:46 AM by oldguy2 | 2 comments »

And the box is looking good. The top has beveled edges and we tried the block plane but the end grain went better with the belt sander. we did a little then checked progress. On the bottom we had drawn the box outline and allowed for an extra almost 3/16 projection. and I had him sand the extra to the line for the projection. Hardwood made this slow but that helped with not removing too much and checking the progress. We also did a practice piece. I keep telling him th...

More tools in the shop #6: Designing a Parametric Pencil Box with Sliding Lid in Fusion 360

07-10-2018 07:11 PM by Plasmon360 | 1 comment »

My best friend just had a baby girl. I am very happy for him. I wanted to give her some wooden toys as a gift. I want to put all the toys in a pencil box and ship it. To make the pencil box, I first made a fusion 360 model of the pencil box. I use rabbet joints for this model as it is easier for me to do in my shop (in future, will make one with box joints). In fusion 360, I can add parameters such as box dimensions, thickness, rabbet depth, in parameters table and when any of these param...

Just for Fun... #99: Might I Miter?

11-29-2017 01:02 AM by littlecope | 11 comments »

So there we were, walking through Sears, looking for some clothing…As is usual with a Sears visit, I ended up wandering to the tool department; specifically, their Miter Saw line up…From small to large, it’s always been fun for me to imagine getting one of those, and to imagine making Mitered box corners…Debbie came up behind me and asked if I liked any of them, and then further fueled the desire for one by asking if I needed one, adding that “Christmas is coming...
