My How To Make Fishing Lures by Vlad Evanoff Review

Highly Recommended

I've really worked on the chapters in this book and can only say that if you put in the time you will never revert back to your old methods.

All the modules inside this book are very detailed and explanatory, there is nothing as comprehensive as this guide.

Screw Down Thetop

A door frame is made of rails and stiies. Rails are horizontal, stiles are vertical (like stilts). Rails typically butt into stiles. The frame surrounds a wood piece with its edges shaped to fit Into the rails and stiles.This piece is the raised panel. This story is a compilation of the techniques I've taught for years in my cabinetmaking classes. I've tried plenty of other techniques for making frante-and-panel doors, and many of them work just fine, but the ones presented here are surefire. I...

Picture Framing Primer

The picture in the illustration is a Currier and Ives print framed in a standard crown molding purchased at the lumberyard. This was just thick enough to allow a rabbet to be cut that would contain the glass, print, and thin cardboard backing. If the inner edge of molding used is too thin to provide a ' < rabbet, it will he necessary to construct a subframe of pine. This can be cut Vi less in width than the molding and glued to it as shown in Figure 4. The picture in the illustration is a...

Safely make shaperquality molding on your tablesaw without fancy jigs

His how-to story has a picture-perfect ending. In fact, you might want to round up some spectators for applause in the final steps. Richard Tendick has developed a safe, simple technique to help you make narrow, complex picture-frame stock using nothing more than a tablesaw. That's right, there are no routers or specialized jigs and sleds to make, either. With Richard's system, you actually glue the frame before the final cut. The fun comes when the frame is cut loose from the square stock....

The leg bending jig consists of three pieces a base, a fixed form, and a pivoting pressure block, see Fig. 1. The fixed form is attached to the base but...

Solving Design Problems

As I worked on the design, I began to think about what I didn't like about the dovetail jigs I've used before. The main problem I've had with other jigs is the system for holding the workpieces tight to the jig. (If the wood shifts even slightly, the joint won't fit together correctly.) On most jigs the workpieces are held with metal bars. The bars are tightened down with wing nuts or knobs. But you just can't tighten them enough to keep the wood from moving around as you rout. And, on some of...

That's why woodworkers look for ways to make a strong connection between sides, fronts and backs. The best connection is a mechanical one, where parts interlock. And one of the surest ways...

Sharpening

harpening chisels and plane irons kJ is a whole lot easier if you have a jig to hold the tool at a consistent angle. But the trouble with most sharpening jigs is that the only way to adjust the bevel angle is to loosen the hold-down clamp on the jig and reposition the tool. At best, this is a hit and miss operation. But the sharpening jig sent in by Bob Kelland of St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada solves that problem. It has a bevel gauge (see box below) to help you set up the jig and a...

Sawdust

Building furniture in a production professional shop usually involves very different methods and techniques than used in a home shop. The biggest factor is repetition. Production shops employ a lot of jigs, set-ups, and templates because they're doing the same task over and over to produce multiple pieces of furniture. But some of those methods can be very useful in building a single piece of furniture in a home shop. For example, both of the projects in this issue require cutting curved...

The Basic Process

Cutting mortises and tenons with a router has a lot in common with cutting dovetails or box joints. The b isic process is to cut a cavity in one piece of wood that will accept a projection that you've cut on another piece. Joining the pieccs is the primary motivation. The big difference is that in mortise-and-tenon joiner ', most of the joint is invisible. That means that as long as the joint is Structurally sound, you don't have to worry too much about cosmetic fit. In fact, with many of...

Router Base Pattern

If you cut a slot in the top of your router table, you can use a miter gauge when you're routing. To do this, use double-sided carpet tape to position a 1 -thick guide strip 4 from the front edge of the table top. This guide strip will form the inside edge of the miter gauge slot Fig. 1a . Now, to position the other guide strip, hold the miter gauge snugly between the two strips and stick down the second strip Fig. 1 . To set the depth of a pattern bit, place the miter gauge bar on top of a...

It may be possible to buy a purpose-made tenon-cutting jig for a particular model of saw such jigs are designed to slide along the slot machined across the saw table for the mitre...

Making Holes

Friction Bit Joining

While most basic joiner 7 cuts are made with a saw or a router, holes must be bored with a drill and drill bits. Most woodworkers prefer to use piloted bits for joinery work. See Figure 3-10. The pilot is a small point on the cutting end of the bit which helps to position the hole accurately. Before drilling a hole, check the diameter, angle, and position of the bit. The size of the bit will determine the diameter of the hole. The angle of the bit in relation to the work determines the hole...

Templateguided Work

A template is a quick and easy way to duplicate shapes like circlcs, squares, or even ktters. That's one of its primary uses, but there are others. Many others. The typical template is a durable wood or plastic or metal pattern. When the router, fitted either with a guide bushing or a pattern bit, is run along the edge of the template, the bitmakes a cut in the exact contour of the template. So when remarkable consistency from pan to part is required, a template is used to guide the cuts that...

JIGS FOR PRODUCING HALF-BLIND DOVETAILS DOMINATED the market in 1984, when Leigh Industries D1258 jig was introduced. The D1258 was a winner for two reasons. First, it created dovetails that looked hand cut, because they could be variably spaced and it created them in a fraction of the time that hand-dovetailing would require. Second, in addition to half-blind dovetails, the D1258 could create sliding dovetails and through dovetails in stock up to 1-1 4 thick and 24 wide. In short, the D1258...

Sears Craftsman

This is a relatively inexpensive jig for cutting both halfblind and through dovetails. The spacing and size of both kinds of dovetails is fixed. Two important features of this jig are the template adjustment knob see below and the adjustable board ciamps. Most of the parts of the jig are plastic. The templates are somewhat flexible we prefer more rigid ones and must be set up with care. Craftsman template guides are included, but not the bits 30 for the set .

Half Blind Dovetail Jigs

Stanley Dovetail Jig Model 92870

The least expensive to buy and the easiest to set up are the many half-blind dovetail jigs. No matter how wide or thick the wood is, you clamp it into the jig, run the router through both pieces at once, and get equal-width pins and tails that are rounded to fit into each other at the back. This is the very institutional-looking joint that is often used to assemble drawers for kitchen or other production cabinets. The trickiest part of this one is to get the two parts offset just half a pin in...

How Build Dovetail Jig

SHOP-MADE JIG FOR CUTTING HALF-BLIND DOVETAILS When I first started to build this dovetail jig, I thought the advantage was going to be the low cost. Dovetail jigs are priced from 50 up, but you can make the one shown here for about 30. All you need is some standard off-the-shelf hardware, five board feet of hardwood, and a piece of Vi Masonite to make your own comb template. A kit is also available that includes a pre-cut plastic template, see Sources, page 24 .
