Shopsmith Project Videos #3: Patriotic Marvel DIY Yard Decoration

08-23-2021 09:54 PM by woodshopnerdery | 0 comments »

I really had a good time making this on back in June of this year. I wanted to have it ready for the Fourth of July. I used two Shopsmith tools that I have never used before; the circle cutting attachment for the band saw to cut out the shield, and the biscuit joiner attachment to cut biscuit slots for the joinery. Not the Captain America you were expecting? Read how Sam Wilson, a.k.a. The Falcon, took on the mantle of Captain America from Steve Rogers, https://www.marvel.com/articles/comi...

Small Projects #50: Perfect Mitered Cube Crystal Display Case

07-19-2021 03:00 AM by Madmark2 | 12 comments »

SWMBO is a Yankees fan and for Valentines day I got her a Waterford crystal baseball engraved with the Yankees logo. It’s about 2-1/2” dia and leaded crystal. Waterford Crystal Baseball. There was a thread here recently about how to build a cubical bin. The OP already had a joinery method in mind but I suggested a mitered panel box. This box is made from 12 identical pieces all cut on the TS. Each piece needs to have a 3/32” dado in two sides for the lexan panel ins...

July, Frame & Panel Box Project #8: Lid attached, started on a finish (no stain, this time..)

07-18-2021 02:38 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok..Box first…front and back bottom rails sit lower then the ends do…one is really low down…got out 2 routers.. The Craftsman has a round-over bit…the DeWalt #610 has a edge trimmer…because the bit has a 1/2” shank. Between the two… Was able to match the ends to the front and back bottom rails…next, needed to round that lid a bit.. Along the ends… and.. Along the front and back of the lid’s top edges..and any spots I m...

Small Projects #49: 5 minute camera stand

07-05-2021 01:04 AM by Madmark2 | 2 comments »

Got a WiFi cam that came with a metal bracket that wouldn’t stand on its own. Made this small hex stand out of some 4” wide scrap. I set my miter gauge to 30° & stop block so the blade cuts just past the rough centerline. Flip & repeat and I’ve got a point. Set rip fence to board width and run thru with each of the bevels. Total of four cuts and perfect hex. WiFi Cam Stand. A quick pass with an ogee bit on the table router and the edges are profiled. You can...

June 2021, leftover scraps of Ash, Box Project, maybe #6: Slips are showing, round-overs done

06-16-2021 07:42 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

So…started up the mitersaw…and cut four slips for length. Each gets a bead of glue, and a couple clamps….started on the longer sides, attempting to pull the bowed in side back out to straight…then work my way around from there… Some joints were better.. But, always seems to be That One… Oh well…going to be covered with a plywood floor above, and a brass foot below. Set this aside for a day..Removed the 3 main clamps from the lid blank.. ...

Workshop build out #4: Tablesaw and router table cart

06-16-2021 01:14 PM by Savlaka | 0 comments »

So in setting up my shop the way I want to, I am putting most of the major tools that take up floor space onto carts. This time it is my tablesaw and an extension for the router to act as a router table.I am making the extension to more or less work with the tablesaw’s existing fence, both to extend my cut capacity on the saw, and to not have another tool table to have to make space for. The main cart is basic pine, cheap furring strips from the local Lowes, cut square there needed. ...

June 2021, leftover scraps of Ash, Box Project, maybe #4: Last corner done, dry fit, then the glue and Clamp Flash Mob

06-15-2021 01:11 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, rest of the corners at done… This was Corner #3…but it was the last of the corners milled…same as before…Enough that I could put all four corners together into a dry fit… So, how did the last corner turn out? The one on the right. Not too hateful? While I had this all set up, had a stack of clamps stop by….needed to get preset, as to which sized clamp can be used… Just 8 clamps? Hmm….we’ll see….noted I would need...

Small Projects #48: Jatoba Strong Box Finished!

06-14-2021 05:25 AM by Madmark2 | 6 comments »

Friend asked me to build a cash box. Something small enough to fit under a bed but still capable of holding significant amounts of cash in a neat and orderly fashion. Strong boxes have a long history. They are often metal banded and reinforced and are designed to resist attack. Being wood, fire can breach the structure. However, being a paper money storage strong box, fire will destroy the contents, defeating the purpose. Completed Strong Box. Build details below … I tried t...
