Taliesin Desk in Cherry #1: Getting started

09-06-2015 04:33 PM by JimYoung | 2 comments »

I’ve been working my way up to this project over the last few years. I have an old “80’s oak” desk in my home office and while it is fine, the style is out of date. When I started in woodworking, my hope was to learn enough and hone my skills to be able to replace my desk some day. I can across this design by Kevin Rodel on the Fine Woodworking site, but there was not much information on it just a few photos. I came across a free plan from Mr. Rodel (FWW July/Aug...

Understanding Blum Soft Close Euro Hardware #1: Arm Crank and Plate Height

11-02-2015 07:23 PM by DBrown52 | 5 comments »

A fantastic upgrade to kitchen cabinets is the newer soft close Euro hardware for doors and drawers. When I decided to build the kitchen for my new home (another story for another day), I knew I wanted this feature and went with the most popular brand: Blum. So why the blog? I’m writing this because Blum hardware – like all cup hinge and undermount slide Euro hardware – is incredibly confusing. I’m an engineer who lives for reading diagrams and schematics and I ...

Tips and Techiques #2: The Somewhat Invisible Hinge Tutorial

03-05-2015 03:49 AM by Jerry | 33 comments »

Okay, I was asked to post a how to for the, I guess I’ll start calling it “vanishing” hinge, since it’s not completely invisible. Anyway I struggled with posting this tutorial, because in this instance things went badly, but I think it’s just as important to publish the mistakes as the successes, because that way whoever reads this can see where the pitfalls are. So in the spirit of full disclosure, here goes. Okay, this tutorial is for 1/2” wood and dow...

Dust Collection Issues. #1: 100% improvement for $100 and a couple of hours.

09-07-2012 12:44 AM by shipwright | 22 comments »

Last winter Steve (kizerpea) posted this home built canister filter. It caught my attention because I had a large DC system in my Canadian shop that employed a bag filter. Having just done a canister conversion on my HF DC in AZ (how’s that for acronyms), I was all ears especially the part about using truck filters. .... FREE truck filters. It has taken me a while to get around to it but today I was at the point where that &%^$#&^# dust bag needed to be cleaned. I HATE clean...

MY STRAIGHTEDGE ROUGH CUTTING JIG.First picture (jig with spalted Maple) The first picture you see is why I built the jig. If you have been following my journey and saw the other jig that I built for my band saw you know that this is the next step. I am truly in awe of what Mother Nature has given me. Picture 2 ( side view of completed straightedge jig with six-inch hold downs) The next picture is my rough drawing of what a poor man’s jig looks like. I decided to u...

Nakashima Inspired Walnut Slab Table #1: Bookmatched Walnut Slabs

12-09-2014 12:24 AM by Marshall | 7 comments »

My wife wanted to buy a new kitchen table. After much convincing, I was able to convince her that we should spend that money on a walnut slab rather than buying a set from a big box furniture store. I picked up this slab from a local sawyer before I decided on the final design. Usually, I’m much more methodical, and work out the design well before I buy lumber, but I couldnt wait for her to change her mind :) Lucky for me, my neighbor owns a cabinet shop with a large Timesaver...
