Crib for Granddaughter #2: Ship Lap Day

10-24-2020 09:53 PM by GrumpyCub | 2 comments »

Well today was all about ship lap.The first step to adding the ship lap to the headboard is to cut a dado into each of the headboard legs. The dado will not go all the way to the bottom so we have to create a stopped dado. I used my table saw to cut the dados, but as you can see, the curve of the table saw blade does not leave a clean, square stop to the dado. In the past I have used a chisel to square up the end of a stopped dado, and I did that here to remove the bulk of the w...

Small Projects #31: Rolling Printer Stand

05-08-2020 05:06 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

Most of the “stands” I create are simple 2X4 & ply creations and this is no exception. However this is one is for our home office and needed to be a little less Spartan. Its the exact height of the computer table – and rolls! The printer is an hp all-in-one with scanner and such. Because of this it needs a minimum 18” height when the scan lid is open. I mad the shelf 20” to give some clearance. The raw 2×4s were planed down to 1-1/4 to remove th...

Dado Jig for the Router

07-20-2019 02:38 PM by Rich | 2 comments »

I built one of these a couple of years back and unfortunately didn’t make it long enough for 24” panels. It was based on this one. While it did the job exactly as it should, I never liked the fact that the knobs to adjust it were underneath. It required the jig and the board both to be elevated when you cut the dado. I need to route dadoes for shelves in the sides of an upright pantry for a client. The sides are 90” tall, so wrestling them over a dado set on my saw is...

Restoring The Machine Plow Plane (Kikai Shakuri Kanna)

08-22-2017 01:16 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 1 comment »

View on YouTube If you haven’t noticed I am a big fan of the Japanese methods and thoughts behind woodworking. And as such I do alot of reading on the topic and ever since I saw a drawing of one of these planes in Toshio Odate’s book on tools I have wanted one very badly. I’d wager that each craftsman has his favorite tool, something that he just enjoys for no reason other than “he simply does”. this tool is it for me. The challenge of it I find invigorating. W...

Custom Camera Box

10-02-2016 05:25 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

My filming stuff has been laying all over. Batteries in one box, camera in another, tripod somewhere else. I figured it was time to make a box to hold all my stuff. I was able to cut everything on my Ridgid bandsaw and then cut all the rabbets and dadoes on my router table. Very simple yet strong construction. Click here to view on YouTube.

Oak Storage Bench #4: The Panels

02-16-2016 05:03 AM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

Hey! I figured out how to embed videos. Yay! Next step is to create the panels that will fit in the tongue and groove joinery of the frame. I chose 1/2” red oak plywood. That way I would have a 1/4” reveal on the outside and the panels would be flush with the frame on the inside.Some of the techniques I practiced in this session are the following:Cross-cutting veneer plywood with minimal tear-outSetting up a dado blade for cutting rabbetsPreparation of panel stock for stainin...
