Shapening stone box - the greasebox type

03-24-2020 12:52 PM by mafe | 9 comments »

Shapening stone boxthe greasebox type. Hi there, In these STAY HOME times, I thought it was time to make a wee project, where I combined tools and projects. Like this I could get to try out my new router and also use my small flex shaft router, for inlay work, all this to make a small box for a sharpening stone, that was a gift from a dear friend. This is what I will be making, a wee box, with a giraffe bone inlayed dovetail, that locks the box, with the grease box closure. Fist s...

Small Projects #16: Jatoba stash box

02-26-2020 07:13 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

Made this box to hold a pipe, lighter, and sealed stash container out of some scrap 1/4” x 4” x 20” jatoba. Goofed a little and cut the lid too short (1/4” +-.002”, I make very precise mistakes!) Takes about an hour and produces negligible scrap. Sized to hold a pipe, lighter & stash Closed tight The makers mark

Small Projects #15: Model Paint Organizer

02-16-2020 12:05 AM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

To make the wonderbread pipes I needed small volumes of several different colors. A trip to the hobby store and I’m now the proud owner of a bunch of small Testor’s paint vials, thinner and brushes. Needless to say in my (admittedly) cluttered shop keeping the paints and stuff in one place quickly becomes an issue. But hey! I’m a woodworker! I can fix that! I rummaged around for a few scraps and built this: The bottom is oak (it was the only piece of 3-1/2” wide ...

Small Projects #9: Purpleheart Burial Flag Box

01-28-2020 12:28 AM by Madmark2 | 5 comments »

A veteran friend of mine, Bert, recently passed and I’m making a flag box for his burial flag out of purpleheart. While appearing simple to make, computing the dimensions from just the 17-1/2” side of the folded flag is a challenge. You have to take into account the diagonal lengths (the length of a 45° miter on 3/4” stock is 1-1/16”) The neat thing is that the three pieces:Pieces mitered, rabbeted and grooved. When stood together the pieces hold their form on th...

Small Projects #3: Cherry Insulin box

01-27-2020 12:33 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

As I diabetic I need vials of insulin, needles and alcohol pads to be handy at all times especially when traveling. This little cherry tote box is 3” x 3” x 7” out of resawn 1/4” stock. It holds two vials of insulin, eight syringes and a good supply of alcohol pads. I actually made this in 2016 and its held up well. My laser engraver was working then and I engraved the lid to suggest the contents. The sliding lid has what I like to call a ‘perfect’ fi...

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...

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...
