Tutorial: Installing Side Rail Hinges

10-06-2017 09:01 PM by Ron Stewart | 3 comments »

If, like me, you are new to box making, you may be apprehensive about installing hinges. The number of options is large and bewildering and, with hinge installation being one of the final steps in the construction process, fear of ruining a nearly completed box is a valid concern. I’m not experienced enough to help you wade through all of the hinge options (Roger Bean’s excellent blog post Some Thoughts on Box Hinges might help with that), but I can can tell you how to inst...

Wood Table Saw Wing #4: Router Plate Installation

04-06-2016 12:46 AM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

If you have seen my previous video about my wooden table saw wing, you already know that I plan on using it as my router table. So the next step in the evolution is to install the router plate into the wooden table saw wing. There isn’t a lot to it. I chose to build a frame, using the actual router bit as a template. Then, using the frame as a pattern, I used a flush trim router bit at the correct depth to cut out the recess for the router plate. All I needed for this application is...

Roubo Inspired Bench #5: Getting closer - finally getting the slabs on top of the bench, & an orange dog or 2

05-25-2013 09:51 PM by jusfine | 9 comments »

The rails have been assembled, legs attached to the cabinet, a little clean up and should be ready to mortise for the slabs. It appears I have some corrupted images on my memory card, so may not be able to post any of the photos of mortising or attaching the slabs through the rails with the SPAX type screws. Slabs have been fastened to the top with one screw at each end, there is a 2” gap between the two sections. I wanted a wide enough space to be able to use a Be...

Roubo Inspired Bench #4: Benchcrafted Hardware installation and a surprise visit

05-25-2013 09:09 PM by jusfine | 5 comments »

Installation of the wagon vise hardware – very easy to follow directions! Gluing up the paduak for the leg vise. If you are going to use the crisscross system, ensure you have a minimum of 2 1/4” final thickness on your vise as the cavity routed for the hardware is considerable. Plywood top is in place and vise hardware is partially assembled. Couldn’t resist trying the hardware out after the right front leg was drilled for the holdfast clamp...

Wood Art #1: Tania Kovats' TREE

08-10-2009 09:50 PM by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

At 17m long, TREE is London’s Natural History Museum’s largest botanical specimen. It is a wafer-thin shaving through the entire 200 year old tree from roots to branch tips. The video shows Tania Kovats’ journey through finding the tree, deciding how to bring it down, learning how to have it resawn, CNC machined thin, and dried, and the ultimate hanging on the ceiling of the mezzanine gallery behind the Central Hall. Quite some board feet she left behind at the mill. She...

Craftsman Bungalow Restoration #19: Must... make ...doors ...fit.

03-15-2009 12:02 AM by gizmodyne | 5 comments »

If you remember the last time I fit the doors in…..They were all dinged up and “beyond repair.” Well a hammer and saw later(see last blog) and they were ready to stain. Procedure: Washcoat, two coats gel stain, shellac, poly. FrankenHingesNothing comes easy around here. I knew the shape of the original hinges but could not find a supplier. So I order two different types of hinges from rejuvenation… Check out the video of how I mixed the two hinges. Not rocke...

Cabinet Progress #17: Hiding the disaster

12-14-2008 08:38 AM by gizmodyne | 10 comments »

I finally got around to dealing with this mess. (I just noticed that I posted the last post for this project 385 days ago!)Kristin is patient, but she has been asking me to stain and install the doors. I had some fitting to do, along with a week or so of staining/ finishing before install time. (not to mention dropping/breaking/rebuilding/ one door).Installing the Z-braces on the inside of the doors. First to install a door stop for the doors to close against. If I could do it all over I woul...

Cabinet Progress #16: Cabinet 2: Last Drawer Standing

11-24-2007 07:03 PM by gizmodyne | 7 comments »

Tilt Outs I started the tilt outs optimisticaly. I began by making filler strips to bring the hinges flush to the face frame. Setting the hinge. After lots of adjusting (3 hours) I got the drawer to fit reasonably well. The weird thing about these hinges is that they dont just tilt. They kind of tilt, slide down, and then push in. They are more intended for overlay applications and really should have been installed prior to the cabinet installation. I had to cut down the drawer front...

Custom Dishwasher Panel Progress #8: Installation

11-16-2007 07:18 AM by gizmodyne | 10 comments »

The installation of the diswasher finally begins. The first step: nailing a steam shield to the bottom of the counter. I spent a lot of time leveling and fussing with the machine. Here you see me marking the plastic templates that come with the machine. It helps to set the height of the panel. It is marked and then attached to the metal harness. Finding the centerline on the back of the panel. Setting the harness. It is alligned along the center line and the marks from the pla...
