  1. brought some stained glass from a torn down church and wanted a wood frame instead of!!! Now I get to get even with him for going up on my taxes. Oh wait, I just remembered in Texas when a person turns 65 his taxes stays the same for the rest of his life...and he was not a criminal judge so I guess our paths never did meet. I didn't even touch the glass and the frame made it look better....
  2. Now that the drum runs true and the table lift works, it was time to start building the frame. My intention was to use mortise and tenon joinery but my choice of material was 2 x 6 for the top and bottom of the sides. This was larger than my mortiser could handle. I know, I could have chopped them out by hand. I opted for half lap joints. The overall width of the frame is 23” and the table height is about 31”. The length, at the bottom, is about 36”. The table is 16” x 24”. The frame is made of pine 2 x 4 and 2 x 6. All the joints are glued and screwed. The table is a piece of ¾” Melamine with ¾” plywood support and a 1” oak piece for the pivot hinge. These photos are from the dry fit. I’m gonna need to get some more clamps! (View 1,2,3,4) To increase the structural integrity, I added two 2 x 4 cross members at the bottom of the front and back of the frame. You will be able to see them in a later section.
  3. As mentioned before, the tips and tricks we mention here are personal choices and not gospel. We all have our particular ways of doing things that work for us. There are NO absolutes in scrolling. Sorry to have taken so long in getting the next Tips and Tricks our, folks. Life got in the way. Anyway, there has been some interest in how to make self-framing projects. This type of project is the art of using one piece of wood for both the picture AND the frame. For the demo, I have chosen a Sheila Landry design for the project. Without going into all the basics of choosing the wood, sanding, prep work, affixing the pattern, assume we have already done it. (Because this is a purchased pattern, I will not include all of the pattern here.) What I want you to notice is the "X" marked on the pattern and marked "Drill Entry Hole Here" Why there, you ask???? That is the point that we will start making our frame. The figure in the middle is going to be recessed by 1/4 to 3/8" around this line. Outside of this line will be the frame. When we make self-framing projects, we don't want any light to shine through our framing cut AND we want to make sure that we have a good glue area. To accomplish this task, we will need to use a "bevel" technique. That simply means that we change the angle of the blade to the wood. With most of the saws, you will tilt the table to change the angle of the cut. With the Excalibur saw, you will change the angle of the cutting head. Depending on the size of the blade you use, you will change the angle from 2 to 5 degrees. I know that we are talking about very small changes - - - - soooooooooooooooooooooo - - - - - the image below is that of a protractor. Feel free to copy this image or download your own by searching "protractor image" in your favorite search engine. When printing this image you change its size to suit. After printing, I glued mine onto scrap, and cut the outside. Be certain that the bottom of the image is flush with the bottom of your scrap. The next step that I personally recommend is to use a piece of scrap and cut some test areas as shown below. I label each area with the amount of angle on the blade. Also notice that I labeled the size of the blade. (OK, I mislabeled the #3 blade as #4). This seems to help me choose the amount of angle and size of blade by actually showing me how far the cut piece will move. The next step will be to drill the entry hole. Choose the smallest drill bit that you can for this entry hole as it will probably be seen (more on this later). Now - there are some differences of opinion in this step. some say that you can drill the hole at 90 degrees - in other words straight down - other say that you must drill the hold on your chosen angle. Try it both ways and see which way works best for you. Ready for the next step? Notice that nothing has been said yet about any cutting on the pattern itself. We will do that in a little while. OK - tilt your saw to the chosen angle of cut. At this point, it doesn't really make any difference which direction (if you saw will tilt both ways). Thread the blade through the hole and tighten the tension. I have a habit of a little over-tightening at this point because I don't want the blade to wander. NOW to decide which direction to cut. You are going to want the outside (frame) to fall out the bottom of the piece. This will eventually make the center piece depressed into the frame and the frame proud. When you are satisfied you are cutting in the right direction, do so. Slow and steady will make a great even cut. When you are finished, test fit the center by inserting it into the frame from the top. It should be something like the picture below. If all looks good, go ahead and glue the pieces together. Allow at least 8 hours to dry. After you are sure the pieces are cured, it's time for the next step. Using a carrier board, it is time to plane the back side. This step is not mandatory but I like to use it - makes for a more finished piece on the back side. (Shown in the picture below) Another thing that I will do at this time, because I have some nice firm wood to work with, is to route a 1/4" round-over around the inside of the frame. You can almost see that in the picture below OK - now it's time to cut out everything starting with the inside and working out to the frame. Below is what I ended up with. Notice that I also put a 1/4" round-over around the entire frame. Whatcha think, folks - ready to try "Self-Framing" projects..? ? ? ? ? ? Let's have some discussion here. Give it a try and post your results. And thanks for your participation.
  4. In 2018 our church choir made a pilgrimage to Italy and actually had to opportunity to sing at a Papal Mass (means attended by the Pope). We also sang at several other basilicas and even held a concert for the people of Rome. It was a most rewarding experience. While there, we had several professional pictures taken, but they were kind of a weird size and my wife and I could not find an appropriate frame to display these pictures - so I decided to make one myself out of a slab of Buckeye I had, incorporating my chip-carving. Here is the start - pretty much cut to size, just playing with what I will carve into the face of the frame:
  5. Something a bit different....as a way to use up a pile of scraps? One such pile. Have already sliced a couple of these scraps. I don't think the old 1/2" bandsaw blade will be of much use... Been a bit too beat up, lately.....I do have a 1/4" blade in the saw, right now.. Not really a new one, but it is at least...sharp. Maple tends to turn a bit brown. Cuts were a tad wavy. Motor at first didn't want to work this hard....and tried to shut down....until I pointed out to it, that the motor it replaced, was STILL in the shop...and YOU CAN BE REPLACED......motor started right up....imagine that Thought I could just jack plane these smooth....plane was a bit too big, for this job... The Stanley No. 3c that I had just rehabbed, happened to be sitting out, where I could grab it...seemed to do a decent enough job.. I even used it to joint a few edges... Got one looking decent enough as for width...needed trimmed on the ends for square, though.. Works for me. Got a few all the same width, mainly by bandsawing to width. was able to gang a bunch up.. Used the #3c again. to make them all the same width. Had two pieces, came from the same board.. Figured I could book-match these two into a panel for a lid....they needed a bit of work, one end being wider than the other end...bandsaw to correct that, plane to do the edges straight...try to make the grain as close as i could.. May need to add a bit, to get to the width I need. Set the thin stuff aside, for now.. These will be sawn down into 1" to1-1/2" wide strips....to make the frames to house those thin panels..had to set up a jig on the saw... Set for 1" width, for now....may go with the 1-1/2" instead....more to work with. Made a big mess today... May be about time to bring the trashcan back down to the shop? May need to do some glue-ups, and make some frames. Stay tuned...will see IF I can get this done, before next Tuesday morning...
  6. Here is an article I wrote maybe 20 years ago and now recycled. It has some prologue and editing that I did not do, but basically correct. Happened to stumble into it last week. I had to laugh as they called me a "professional artist." Ummm, I was building software products at the time. DIY-Picture-Framing.pdf
  7. I ran across these pictures of a room divider screen frame I made for a friend of the family awhile back. She wanted to cover with fabric and have the top and bottom rails removable to slide into the loop in the fabric top and bottom. So I used a dovetail joint on the ends of the rails. I thought this might be of interest to someone. Herb
  8. From the album: DerBengel's Scrapbook

    This is my first real attempt at painting (back in 1986). It's a 20" x 24" in acrylic. This is also my first attempt at mitering. It's a 1" x 2" MDF that I painted black.

  9. GONNA BUILD A DOVETAIL ''FRAME'' FOR 24 INCH. YEAW IT'L BE LOT OF CAREFULNESS, BUT HEY WHAT ELSE HAVE WE GOT. INTO 3 WK OF REHAB. STILL GOT AWAYS TO GO, BUT AN OLDMAN CAN DREAM?
  10. You can't tell it, but this is a beetle kill pine frame. I made a lot of things out of it. I made this frame for my wife for her embroidery ladies. She made about 6 of them. The pin in her hair is real and highlights the work. She took one look at my beetle kill pine and said, NO. Its got to be black. I really wanted to show Karen's beautiful handy work.
  11. Has finally came back "on-line".....scary thought... Working out some details to build a case to hold the boxes I have been a-building....and maybe a drawer or two. maybe like a chest-of-drawers? Need to make the sides and top. Might be whatever wood comes into the shop during the build. Might see quite a bit of work done with the Stanley 45, too. Might need to resaw a few things down, too. Start time is after the 5th jan. Doc visit. Will post updates of the build, and the knee. Stay tuned.
  12. Ok, time for the "late Edition", Went back down to shop for a bit....had a little more work I could do.. Yeah,,, ugly things. We have ways of flattening this out.. Called a Jumbo Jack plane. Jack plane on steroids. The weight will help keep the board down onto the bench. Have to do both faces, and even a few smooth plane passes... Until I get these four slats, fairly straight, and smooth.....enough to at least work with them. But, there are those edges.. Back to the Jumbo Jack. Make one side straight, and then gingerly flip the sammich over, and do the other edges. Without any of them moving around...mallet comes in very handy.. Testing the fits... Have to allow for joinery on the ends. Longer sides were ok for length, had to trim the shorter two a bit......Stack all the mess up into one spot.. Have a few more jobs to do with this mess...dovetailed corners, a Stanley #45 to plough a groove for the panel, size the panel and raise it, Might take a day or three..."Say Goodnight, Gracie"

  14. Well, there is all the parts Frame & Panel parts. Just finished milling the last leg parts.Had some nasty stuff to cut away, though Just to make two back leg blanks for the end panels. Cleaned up some rails Set up a three screw jig to remove the "cope" from the tenon. Used a #3 handplane to "Chute" away the lip, and mill the shoulder back to square. Third screw is behind this rail. Most of the old parts had a two layer "veneer" , some even had a thick paper as the outer layer. Pried most of it off, to get down to the "real wood" underneath the glue. Milled a few last grooves, and will start to mill tenons tomorrow, I hope. Even tried a test fit Ok, so I still have some work to do on this.... Raised panels have been sitting around, awaiting to be installed in the frames. Trying to build this chest with just the parts scrounged from the old bed frame. Might even have enough left over, to glue up a fancy lid... Stay tuned...
