Sandpaper shelves #2: Rear frame and panel glue-up

11-04-2021 03:26 PM by Dave Polaschek | 8 comments »

Got a short time this morning (I’ve got to go get my Covid booster later this morning) so I got the rear frame of the box glued up. First up was cutting a rabbet for the rear panel to sit in. I marked lines a quarter of an inch from the inside of the opening, and set my circular saw to cut just under a quarter inch deep. Set each of the frame pieces in my vise, flush with the top of the vise (so the circular saw would have something to ride on) and after some practice plunge-cutting on scr...

Small Projects #53: Walnut Air Filter Stand

08-25-2021 02:01 AM by Madmark2 | 7 comments »

We have pets and with pets comes pet dander and allergies. We bought a Grizzly G0738 two stage (5um & 1um) filter. Grizzly G0738 two stage, three speed air filter w/ remote. It really makes a difference but it’s not the most attractive box in the bedroom. It’s been sitting on a faux walnut MDF stand that’s falling apart. I decided, and SWMBO agreed, that something better was needed. Completed top is gorgeous! I came up with a design for a real walnut (& ...

Small Projects #51: Lacewood Box with Brazilian Rosewood Tray

08-01-2021 03:36 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

SWMBO had a friend visiting us in Fla from TGWN (The Great White North) and I made this box. SWMBO put the final finish on it. Ready to ship. Waiting on final finished coat of poly. The box is from a 15/16” x 5” x 18” piece of S2S lace wood. The tray is from a 13/16” x 2” x 24” piece of Brazilian rosewood with a big worm trail about 6” from one end. There were only two pieces of scrap from the lace wood, both from trimming the bottom to...

Crib for Granddaughter #2: Ship Lap Day

10-24-2020 09:53 PM by GrumpyCub | 4 comments »

Well today was all about ship lap.The first step to adding the ship lap to the headboard is to cut a dado into each of the headboard legs. The dado will not go all the way to the bottom so we have to create a stopped dado. I used my table saw to cut the dados, but as you can see, the curve of the table saw blade does not leave a clean, square stop to the dado. In the past I have used a chisel to square up the end of a stopped dado, and I did that here to remove the bulk of the w...

Custom Camera Box

10-02-2016 05:25 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

My filming stuff has been laying all over. Batteries in one box, camera in another, tripod somewhere else. I figured it was time to make a box to hold all my stuff. I was able to cut everything on my Ridgid bandsaw and then cut all the rabbets and dadoes on my router table. Very simple yet strong construction. Click here to view on YouTube.

Oak Storage Bench #4: The Panels

02-16-2016 05:03 AM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

Hey! I figured out how to embed videos. Yay! Next step is to create the panels that will fit in the tongue and groove joinery of the frame. I chose 1/2” red oak plywood. That way I would have a 1/4” reveal on the outside and the panels would be flush with the frame on the inside.Some of the techniques I practiced in this session are the following:Cross-cutting veneer plywood with minimal tear-outSetting up a dado blade for cutting rabbetsPreparation of panel stock for stainin...

Lego Table #14: Fixing the sliding bottom...

12-11-2015 11:01 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

I had a eureka moment last night. How to get the false bottoms on the bins to slide in and out? I had envisioned two pieces of thin plywood or hardboard, sliding out through the sides, which allow all the collected Legos to fall out through the open bottom. I had devised a few different ways to achieve this goal, but all of them included little guide rails sandwiching the moving part. It was all very complicated and involved tiny pieces. Then it came to me: why not just cut the bottom o...

Lego Table #13: Sliding bottom idea...

12-11-2015 10:57 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

After a quick check on the wounded drawer to see how things were drying, I came to the conclusion that my repair work accomplished it’s goal. The drawer is nice and sturdy again after the glue. However, I’m a little concerned about the depth of the router cut. I may have to redo this one. I decided to shelve the drawers and move on with the other trickery needed to finish the top. I need to make the little bins on the wings that will collect Legos the kids scoop off the main play surfa...
