Workshop operational tips. #7: Easy(er) way to use double sided tape.

06-18-2019 04:41 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 4 comments »

Boys and Girls, I normally poo-poo authors that say a few words and then direct their audience to a YouTube video or to a different forum/WEB, however, this is another one of those tips that make workshop practices so much easier that I thought I’d break my own rules (this time). OK, I folded, and had to make my voice be read. When using double sided tape, a lot of people (me inclusive) cut off strips of tape with scissors, apply it to the timber and then swear like a trooper w...

08-23-2018 03:42 AM by BenhamDesign | 5 comments »

The Adobe CC seems to be the industry standard among may design professionals. So in this video I show you a way to use Adobe Illustrator...

Crib #2: Building Curves

01-23-2018 11:49 PM by RenB | 0 comments »

Looking at my Sketchup model the thing I think would be the biggest problem is the arches on the back board. There are 2 curved boards, one curved molding and one Laminated board. I figure this is the best place to get started. The first thing I did was find the radius of the arch that I wanted to create. To do this I found an online calculator and put in the width and height of the arch segment I had. I came up with a 68.25” radius. Next I got some MDF to use as a template. ...

Exposed Finger Joint Box #2: The base

02-22-2017 05:44 PM by splintergroup | 1 comment »

The base of this box is where anyone can “go wild” with design options. The basics are simple, a frame with lap joints, filled with a plywood panel. The feet are simple squares. A pdf file with dimensions for the base can be found here The design allows for the base to have 1/2” of exposure along its perimeter with the box, basically it aligns flush with the boxes inside dimensions.A felt covered plywood piece fits into a routed shelf to seal off the box bottom. Th...

My Roubo Workbench. #5: Part 6 Sliding Deadman

01-03-2016 11:14 AM by joedillon | 3 comments »

When milling up the material for the bench at my firms workshop i created a right angled triangular rail for the deadman to slide across, a couple of opposing 45 rips followed by a 0 rip was enough to create the slide. This was cut to the shoulder length of the front slider, glued and clamped into position.The underside of the top received a 12×20mm groove between the two front mortices created by a router and parallel fence.I cut a birds mouth at the bottom and a tongue at the t...

Kitchen Utensil Box #4: Shaping the corner posts

12-29-2015 08:22 AM by JSOvens | 0 comments »

Well, after many months of hiatus from this project, I managed to get back on the horse. Looking at the May 30th time stamp of the last post, I realized that this is right before My convocation (graduation) ceremony at my university – so you can officially feel free to call me Dr. Ovens! This of course led to several months of job hunting, the success of which is still to be determined. In any case, the last update showed the joinery I used to couple the Padauk corner posts with the ...

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...

Hints and Tips #10: Template Sawing on the Table Saw

09-03-2015 05:50 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

If you remember my Tip #7, I showed how I jointed one edge of a board by taping a straight edge to a board and running it along the fence of a table saw. Well, sometimes I think I’m just stupid! There’s an easier way to do this and I already had the jig for it made. My wife asked me for a piece of wood to shore up one side of an electronic keyboard at her school. I had a piece in mind, but wanted to square it up and paint it black. After I did all of this, using the method des...
