Small Projects #5: Tall Dog Gate

01-27-2020 01:11 AM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

While I love dogs, they need to be kept out of the kitchen. The opening to the kitchen is over 4’ wide and needs to be closed off. However a long gate’s swing is too much for the confines of the kitchen. I came up with this bifold gate. The metal screen prevents the dogs from pushing thru. The two sections of the gate are hand mortised for the hinges for a tight, clean join. Each section has a 2” caster to prevent sagging and hinge pullout. Latching the gate was more o...

Drop Leaf Table #6: A Pembroke and The Season?

12-24-2019 02:26 PM by Tom | 1 comment »

Well it happened. The season arrived at our house. The cold and flu season along with the holiday season. Work, travel and illness really put a dent into my table build schedule. But it is time for some vacation and the illness has pretty much passed. I have started preparing the table top, but before I get into that, I need to learn how to make a drop leaf rule joint with some old tools. I have never made a rule joint before, and of course I want to do it with hand tools. I need som...

Shop Projects, how “Nice” should they be?

02-10-2018 05:56 AM by IantheTinker | 31 comments »

I am building an outfeed table for my table Saw, just a short one to extend over the outboard motor. Then I will hinge a folding table onto the end of the short one. I am doing this to save on dedicated space while allowing options for assembling s9me larger upcoming projects. My only issue is that I keep gett8ng hung up on how nice these things need to look. I see the guys on the YouTubes making these really nice outfeed table with melamine surfaces and oak trim and whatnot. I am on a seriou...

Rocket Bookcase #8: The Hinge...and my return!

12-04-2013 08:12 PM by RaggedKerf | 1 comment »

At long last, I was cleared (sort of) for duty back in the shop. This back injury has been a doozy and has brought my woodworking almost to a standstill—-and at the worst time too. With daytime highs now in the low to mid 30s, my unheated shop is all but closed up for the winter. Undeterred, I am powering through the rough spots. I picked up where leaving off oh, a month or two ago, and cut out the pieces for the hinge. I think this picture is pretty self explanatory: ...

Pochade Box in progress #2: mechanism, woodburning and handle

11-22-2013 11:11 AM by Jon1094 | 1 comment »

I completed the mechanism for the inside of the box lid and fit it to to canvasse boards that it will hold. I believe they are 12”X9? I built the cover for the top out of baltic birch ply and chamfered the edges to make it a bit more sleek. I put my artistic abilities to the test and printed off a quote from the English illustrator Arthur Rackham. I made sure the font was something attractive but would still be easy to burn. I printed the quote out and taped it to graphite transfer...

From log to box in less than a month #6: Becoming (almost) unhinged over hinges

05-09-2013 02:58 PM by sras | 20 comments »

Well, I thought this would only take one evening, but it was more like 3 evenings and a morning! The hinges arrived from Lee Valley on Monday on time. From past experience, I knew the #4 screws are a little small in diameter and were going to be too long for the lids. Last time I used #6, but they were a little big and I had to open up the countersinks to get them to fit. This time I went with #5 screws – 1/2 inch for the lid and 3/4” for the box. Now that the hin...

Building a Dr. White's Chest #8: Hanging Doors

05-07-2013 12:01 PM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Mortising the HingesHanging doors involves a mixture of precise work and some trial and error. The first step is to choose a hinge and then mortise the case frame to receive the hinge. A common approach for hinge placement is to locate the top of the upper hinge even with the bottom of the upper rail and locate the bottom of the lower hinge even with the top of the lower rail of the door frame. I should have thought ahead and routed these mortises before assembling the case. However, I fo...

Workshop Interior Doors #8: hanging the doors

03-08-2013 04:40 PM by ~Julie~ | 4 comments »

Finally hanging the doors is the next step in this long process. I stand my doors in the opening they will go and put them on a flat scrap of wood, just enough to give the clearance under the door that I want. I use about 1/8” – 3/16” up off the floor. Then I mark the top and bottom of the hinge recesses I’ve already cut out on the doors. I tape a hinge onto the door frame at the correct spot and trace around it with a pencil: Then I carefully cut around the...

Workshop Interior Doors #7: hinging the doors

03-04-2013 07:31 PM by ~Julie~ | 3 comments »

Time to put hinges on the doors. I’m going to use 3 hinges per door, so I mark with pencil by tracing around where they will sit right on the door edge. I then use a sharp knife and cut the outline out to no more than a depth of 1/16”. Then I get my hinge and set it on the base of my trim router which has a straight bit in it. The cutting depth of the bit (the amount protruding out of the base) is set as the thickness of the hinge, which in my case is about 1/16”...
