Modern Woodworking Project #9: Modern Bread Box

04-14-2022 04:32 PM by TimberBiscuit | 0 comments »

In this video, I’m building a bread box. This modern bread box uses mortise and tenon joinery with other traditional woodworking techniques and tools. It features a two-tiered bread box that can hold two loaves of bread and has two drawers to store your jams, jellies, and spreads. This is a classic woodworking project with a modern twist that really updates the design. Your bread needs a home, so build it one! Watch the Build Video Here

Modern Woodworking Project #8: Full-Length Mirror and Stand

03-22-2022 04:33 PM by TimberBiscuit | 0 comments »

In this video, I’m building a modern full-length mirror reminiscent of the mid-century dressing mirrors. This mirror incorporates a storage drawer and the mirror pivots so you can adjust its position. I used some fun woodworking techniques like rounded miters, stopped dados, and a bunch of other woodworking tricks to achieve the waterfall grain pattern I was looking for. Watch the Video Here Enjoy the build!

What's coming off your mill? #1: The first big logs

03-14-2022 06:05 PM by bigblockyeti | 9 comments »

It was mentioned to me some might find my milling experiences entertaining so here’s what I’ve been up to on and off the past week. I’ve struggled in the past between getting larger diameter logs, up to 26”, or longer logs 10’-12’ as large of a diameter as I could handle without the use of heavy equipment which I don’t have readily available. I reached out to someone offering free logs without much of a description and a poor picture that really...

Modern Woodworking Project #7: Bent Lamination Pendant Lights

03-01-2022 07:32 PM by TimberBiscuit | 0 comments »

This video has it all – wood bending, sheet metal bending, electrical wiring, and a bunch of great techniques. I used hard maple for the bent lamination to achieve the circular design I wanted. Rather than purchasing veneer (which would have saved a bunch of time), I opted to make my own out of some maple that I already had in the shop. To make these 5 lights, I made 65 veneers, which gave me a little wiggle room for any issues that might come up. But the effort was well worth it. Ou...

Some of you may have been watching the evolution of my Steampunk boxes: Weather Station #1: Followed by the more elaborate Weather Station #2: This brings us to the Rick Head Gadget box, aka Weather Station #3: Now this last one has little to do with woodworking but the wooden part (a servo opening lock box) was waiting on the rest to complete. The box is two 12×12 Lexan sheets with 3D printed mounting bits. All of the circuitry is Arduino. Build blog is HERE Lemme k...

Well it’s finally time to install this project.Everything was removed in the space that this was going in. A transformer and plug was installed in a cutout that was made in the drywall.We added some shims for better nailing. We unwrapped the unit. Propped it up on the ladder’s. We used the scrap plywood in 4 places to hold up the unit so we could position it into place. Then with shims we centered it in the hole and screw it in with 2” screws into metal studs. ...

compass rose ceiling detail #5: Making the ceiling trim and adding lights.

02-09-2022 09:00 PM by grosa | 1 comment »

This ceiling trim is also Sepele. We use the original template we made at the beginning to get the inside cut on the pin router. Then we make a jig and attach it to the jig saw to get the outside radius.There are two screws on the inside of the fence. The trick is to keep both screws touching the inside radius while the blade cuts the outside radius, harder to do than it sounds. Once the inside and outside radius is cut we sand it smooth and route the same profile on both sides. Next...

compass rose ceiling detail #4: Making the vertical walls.

01-31-2022 09:49 PM by grosa | 4 comments »

With some plywood we cut the parts for the form to put in the vacuum bag. It is assembled so the pressure from the bag won’t make it collapse. Then we put some 1/8” bendply on the top. Then we cover that with some black laminate. Next we cut the 1/8” bendply and stack it to equal 3/4” thick. There will be two of these We spread on the glue then screw it to the form in the center and put it in the bag. After a few hours we remove it from the vacuu...
