Miter frame clamps - small, weighted tightening

06-30-2019 10:17 PM by MrLaughingbrook | 2 comments »

I wanted to assemble some very small mitered frames and my band-clamp was way too big. I decided to make a small miter frame string-clamp. Start with a block of 3/4” Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) Polyethylene: Cut a 90 degree V on the long edge and sliced off 1/2 thick pieces: Drill holes overlapping the V to give corner relief. Add a 3/16” hole as a path for the string on the 90 degree from the face: Chamfer the holes and trim to size the short length of three ...

Compound Miters on the Radial Arm Saw #1: The Broken fence method

04-27-2018 04:58 AM by KTNC | 2 comments »

4/26/2018 Reference: How to Master the Radial Arm Saw by Wally Kunkel (aka Mr. Sawdust) chapter 4 pages 69 to 79 I am planning a furniture project that includes a feature like a fireplace mantel. This motivated me to learn how to do compound miters on my radial arm saw. On the internet, I found plenty of information on how to do this with a miter (chop) saw but nothing on using a radial arm saw. I found information in the Mr. Sawdust book referenced above and also in a book by R.J. ...

Shop Projects #2: Table Saw Miter Sled

10-20-2017 05:42 PM by BrettGoodermote | 2 comments »

After having made my 1st table saw sled, I knew I had to have a miter sled as well. A few weeks ago I really found myself at a loss when I needed to make some accurate 45-degree angles for the clock I was making for my wife. I had previously watched a number of videos on this subject and found a method that looked like it would suit my needs and available materials. Here is a pretty good picture of the sled I cannot tell you just how happy I am with this sled! if you take a few ...

Dave's Workshop #16: Small Picture Frame Clamping Jig

03-20-2016 01:11 AM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

[Legebla en Esperanto] [Above] Typical example of Mother Necessity. I needed a way to glue up a small live-edge picture frame plus 5 of it’s sisters sometime down the line. The live edge made it impossible to use a strap clamp or even a rubber band. So after thinking about it, I came up with this ‘simple’ clamping jig. It consists of a pair of cross pieces, the height and width of which match the height and width of the intended frame size. The four cut out corners of...

Somewhere in this jumble of clamps you will see a small live edge picture frame. I think I’ll be making a jig to clamp these as have 5 more to make.

Cocobolo and Leopardwood Table : Process pics. #1: Veneered Panels/Framing the Top

02-01-2016 05:12 AM by jeth | 0 comments »

Hello all, I had a couple of peeps interested in seeing the process shots of the Cocobolo and Leopardwood table with drawer that I posted, so I thought I’ll blog it here split into a few parts so nobody has to scroll through it all in one go… You can see the finished project here. I don’t have a shot of the small Cocobolo board I was given that inspired this table before I started cutting it up but it was a couple of board feet. There was a lovely rich heartwood section d...

Mirror Frame

09-14-2015 04:08 PM by TMoney | 0 comments »

I made this mirror frame by cutting the prices to 8 3/4 in and making a 45 degree cut. Then I carefully drilled holes into the back to connect all the pieces. Some issues I came across are the ingraver was down so I had to use a sticker process. Then next, I had to fix the angles to make all them fit together. If I were to do something different I would use a stain and probably sand the angles down better. Lastly, something I have learned was how to route a frame from the inside and also ...
