  1. A few weeks ago mama decided she wanted a cabinet to store her arts and crafts supplies that are taking up floor space in our upstairs hallway. She went shopping online and found a cabinet she liked for 230 bucks, and it was the typical particle board white surface type of stuff. So I told her I'd be happy to build it and the materials would be less as well. So she and I went to our lumber store and picked up some 4/4 poplar, poplar because she wants the exterior painted white, and I want the interior natural finished. We will be using General Finishes Milk Paint for the exterior.

  3. I have been making Christmas ornaments for a dozen or more years as a give away item. This year i made icicles and they were also good for a lot of skew practice. They will definitely get to a family and a few friends but because of Covid most will not be given out until hopefully next year. Made 60 of these and used 5/8" birch dowel rod for the blanks. Here is my tree with all those that I made over the years.

  5. Can I safely route a dome on the end of a 3/4" dia dowel using a 3/8" round over bit, router table, and miter gauge? If not, what method would you use to add a dome to the end of a dowel? Danl
  6. When I was turning all those lighthouse ornaments I was using pieces of dowel rods. When I chucked them up sometimes they didn't run true. I remembered a trick and used it to get the blank the straightest and therefore using less material. Here is a clip from a video I ran across that shows how it is done.
  7. I made a couple of these for my family and got another request for a couple more. I made them out of Cedar fencing boards and painted with some fence stain/preservative. I made each finger and then joined with glue. After the glue set, I made a cut thru the knuckle and put in a spline. I also drilled all the way thru the fingers and glued in a small dowel to hold the fingers together. The childrens sunglasses came from the Dollar store
  8. Well it that time again coming up on the Dec. Woodworkers club meeting I always have made some little thing for the members, we usually have 15-20 members show up. This year I made a doweling jig. Here are the picture of the build. Herb
  9. I ordered a hole drilling jig for my dowel hinges from Rob Cosman a couple of weeks ago and Rob actually called me up and notified me he had shipped it and thanked me for ordering it. It is well machined and in it's own little wood tray. It has 1/2",3/8",5/16",and 1/4" cups, with 2 mandrels. One is for a 1/16" drill bit,and the other for 1/8"drill bit,plus the allen wrench to set the drill bits to depth. You cut the dowel segments to length, and turn on the drill and push it into the cup, turn it around and do the other end. If you leave it like that then cu
  10. this is not the same box but is the way I start building one. I have to print out 10 exact patterns. The tenth one is just solid with no holes for drawers. All the pieces I cut out for the drawers are later glued together except for the front of the drawer and the back of the drawer. I use dowels to line up everything . If I don't use the dowels when clamping two pieces together it could slip just a hair one way or the other and cause lots of extra sanding or cause for the trash can. Each set of holes has to be in a different place than the next side of the pieces. And yo
  11. Here are the latest recipe boxes. I found that when the top is cut off that it becomes shorter and the box becomes lager due to the sloping front. this created a slight problem when installing the metal hinges to line up the front of the box with the top. I compensated by going to the Rob Corson wooden dowel hinge on the cedar boxes I like that setup better and will do it on any future boxes. Also will do a separate tutorial on how it is done. Herb
  12. This is the Rob Corson dowel hinge. With a bullnose or ball router bit on a router table the size of the dowel, route a 1/4 round slot in the back of lid and back of box. Set the fence at the center of the bit diameter and run the top and the box through. The fence can be set in or out to suit the particular box and how wide the lid opens. Take a dowel the same size as the router bit and cut lengths to suit the length of the box, they can be the same length or different lengths. Drill a hole in the center of the dowel the size of the pin. The pin can be metal rod, or wooden do
  13. I recently made a thread cabinet for a sewing friend of mine. The spools were to be placed over dowels to keep the thread spools in order. I needed 168 four inch dowels. Decided I need 20 four foot dowels to come up with the number needed. Couldn't see myself making 168 cuts so I came up with a plan to wrap them all together with some plastic stretch wrap and give that a whirl. Marked off the a dowel every four inches and wrapped the dowels together in between the marks stretching the plastic nice and tight and put them through the table saw. Worked nicely. Got them all cut quickly and
  14. The current WOOD Magazine has a good article on "Drill joinery" - screws, dowel joints, pocket screws, Miller Dowels, BeadLock, mortise and tenon joints, etc. Well covered. A couple of other articles on a compact workbench from 2-bys and glue comparisons. Best issue I've seen in a while.
  15. Not sure IF this goes in the Hand Tool section, but Ran into a problem while trying to plane these thinner boards... Dogs are too fat, plane was hitting them. Yes, that is a new dog hole there as well. Used a cordless drill to make the new dog hole.. Now have three hole right down the center line of the vise. Remember that red handled thingy, as I have a job for it, as well. Cut a 7/8" dowel to about 4-5" long, and then cut one end at an angle ~5 degrees Needed the red handled item to drill a pilot hole into the end of the dowel.. See
  16. And I got a day more to go. The things I do.Well point is I bloody well didn't want to buy 2" diameter dowels but I needed 'em, For most of the day it was not going as well as I'd hoped. I was getting a horrible surface finish - - all choppy. I was getting inconsistency of about 0.020" from end to end but I dialed that in to about 0.010" error I'm using a router on a lathe. On my lathe I built a very stout rig from 1.125" maple that supports a wide board about the same thickness above the drive and and tail stock center much like the guy has in this video
