MDB #4: The Age of the Machines - Final milling and profiling

08-02-2010 03:43 PM by PurpLev | 14 comments »

Disclaimer: This blog follows my Magen David Board that is already finished and posted here Once everything was glued up into a single slab, it was time to plane it flat and parallel. one of the strips I jointed happen (don’t ask me how…lol) to be jointed off square, throwing the last 4-5 strips in the glueup off flat (mostly flat). I was tired at this point, and just figured I’m not going to rejoint it, but will pay the price and plane it all down at the cost of having a...

MDB #2: Shave and a Cut - Cross Cut that is

08-02-2010 05:30 AM by PurpLev | 5 comments »

Disclaimer: This blog follows my Magen David Board that is already finished and posted here At this point (see previous post for the methodology I chose to take for this project) , I realized that my plan for mass production, and gluing the long strips to one another to make the geometry would cause more trouble, and decided to cross cut them all to their final thickness instead, and in a way changed my work order to a ‘one of’ setup, albeit it would have been better if I did t...

MDB #1: Milling S3S ...yes, triangles.

08-02-2010 03:32 AM by PurpLev | 13 comments »

Disclaimer: This blog follows my Magen David Board that is already finished and posted here In Highschool I always doodled (I still am). and one of my favorite things was to use the squares on the math papers to form different geometries – mostly with triangles. as I was playing along, I discovered that I could form a star of david (Magen David) and that formation has stuck with me ever since. When I was introduced to the idea of making cutting boards out of wood, I always wanted ...

Works for me #5: Adjustable Bandsaw Sled

03-07-2010 10:12 PM by Dave Owen | 8 comments »

This adjustable bandsaw sled works on the same principle as a taper sled for a table saw. I initially designed it for quick and accurate repetitive cuts on the toy racer shown below, but it works great for any kind of angled cuts on the bandsaw. I believe it will also work well for shorter tapered legs, although I haven’t tried it for that yet. The body of the sled is 3/4” MDF, and the fence and stop are made from scraps of Phenolic-faced plywood. The anchor bolt for the...

A Simple Sled

02-01-2010 06:57 PM by Maclegno | 8 comments »

I made this sometime ago from a photo in a magazine (possibly FWW) If I remember correctly the style was New England. It still doesn’t have steel runners. I made it years ago with a wee girl in mind, daughter of a friend, she’s now over 20. Must speed up my work-rate.The woods are Ash and Beech..

Shop Designs #1: Hanging Cabinets - Construction

09-23-2009 01:20 AM by depictureboy | 0 comments »

Well in order to move up to building household furniture I have to show the boss what I can do…So I am starting with some shop cabinets. Nothing fancy, they are made of mdf. I matched the dimensions off one of the cabinets in my kitchen. I am planning on using just ripped 2×4 for the face frame, ill eventually add doors too. Obviously I need a lot of practice…but I realize I need a lot more clamps than what I have. I was able to get a crosscut sled done for t...

Arts & Crafts Night Stands #5: Dry Fit!

09-17-2009 01:29 AM by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

I was able to plane the stock for the shelves yesterday. I glued up a large enough blank for two shelves, then used the fence to cut them parallel. I then used the cross-cut sled to square the other sides. I got to use my Delta new mortiser to make all of the mortises (3 on each side x 4 sides = 12 total). Luckily, they were all 3/8” and had the same offset from the front/back. This meant that with one setup, I could knock them all out. If I had done them with a chisel, ...

Bowling Alley Workbench #10: The Top #2: Flat and Shine

07-26-2009 05:50 AM by PurpLev | 17 comments »

I had some good progress on the top today. it actually started a couple of days ago when I went ahead, cleaned up the buffer strip, and main top, and glued them up together, I also milled the end cap part (which is on top of the clamps in the photo): I also ground down one of the corner of the Lee-Valley Tailvise Nut so that I’ll be able to install the vise higher up and the nut will have less interference with the table top: I’m not a machinist, nor work with metal much (al...

Building an accurate cut-off box in about an hour.

06-09-2009 06:45 PM by Frankie Talarico Jr. | 2 comments »

We end up making these three or four times a year, so I decided to post about them because there are so many uses for them. Our cut-off boxes end up getting mitered in a few different angles and we fianlly have one for 45 degrees and a seperate for 90. It’s a quite useful and versitile tool, a must have in all shops.

There's A Table in There Somewhere! #4: Tapering the Legs

06-05-2009 01:53 AM by CedarFreakCarl | 4 comments »

For any of you that were following this, I’d like to apologize for the time gap between #3 & #4, but I had to get my garden planted and also do a little work for the community. I’ll blog the community work later. Anyhow, now that all the stock for the legs has been milled square, it’s time to taper the legs. The legs on this particular table are rather large, so I had to come up with an alternate method to the table saw. I had recently read an article in one of the ...
