Fabriquez des meubles ...

Qu’est-ce que le Do it yourself ? Le Do it yourself ou DIY pour les intimes est l’art de réaliser par soi-même. C’est presque devenu un art de vivre de nos jours. Sans aller jusque là, je dois toutefois avouer que le do it yourself m’a amené une bonne dose de liberté : création de meubles sur mesure, choix des matériaux et gain d’argent sont souvent au rendez-vous … si l’on fait abstraction de l’investissement en matériel ! Sur ce point, rassurez-vous ! Sur cette page, j’ai rassemblé pour vous toutes mes réalisations. En route pour le Do it yourself …

Miter Joint Corner Clamp

There just isn't an easy way to clamp it. The store-bought clamps I've tried in the past didn't always pull the joint together. Adding a Hidden Compartment - Woodworking Project. A Place to Call ‘Hone’ When I think of all the things that improved my sharpening skills, two things loom large.

A Place to Call ‘Hone’

No. 1 is practice, of course, but close behind that is a dedicated sharpening tray. About 14 years ago I built a shallow tray from scrap plywood, nails and glue. No fancy joinery, no water-resistant materials and no finish. The tray sat beside my bench and contained all my sharpening mess, keeping it off my workbench and project parts. Once I had the tray in place, a funny thing happened. My tools stayed sharper. Débutants, utilisez vos deux mains gauches et créer vos propres meubles. The Modern Thread Box. This is the 1"-6TPI thread box set and the tools you will need to properly adjust it.

The Modern Thread Box

In a recent article about the Beall wood threading system I mentioned that I had previously been working with a modern thread box set to cut male and female threads in wood. I think this system merit’s a closer look as it is a very good way to cut threads in wood inexpensively. The opening picture shows the 1” AMT thread box set that I use to make threads for the “Mini Moxon” twin screw vises that I make. This set, along with several others was purchased at an auction many years ago and sat on a shelf until recently.

AMT is not in business anymore, but these thread box sets are still being made and sold by many woodworking tool suppliers and they come in sizes up to 1 1/2″. The set includes the thread box made of maple I think, the taper tap and handle and instructions. Here you can see the tap in use on red oak. I recommend cutting the internal threads first. Care must be taken starting the tap. The Milkman's Workbench in Use. The Milkman’s Workbench – a portable bench I built for the June 2013 issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine – is about 653 percent better than my first workbench.

The Milkman's Workbench in Use

Thanks to the clever engineering in the portable bench, it can handle most handwork tasks when clamped to a dining room table or kitchen countertop. My first workbench – a heavy door on sawhorses – could do only a fraction of these task. To demonstrate its capabilities, I attached the portable bench to my dining room table.

Plus who likes to bend over and reach into the cabinet? Here’s a great alternative: In one cabinet,replace the shelves with a simple trash can holder mounted on drawer slides.By attaching the existing cabinet door to the front of the pull-out unit,you create a convenient trash drawer. Fig.C and the photos at right show how to build the unit. Melamine board—particleboard with a tough plastic coating—is a good material for this project because it’s easy to clean.A 4x8 sheet costs about $25 at home centers.The melamine coating,however, tends to chip during cutting.This chipping is worst where the saw teeth exit the material.

You’ll also need iron-on edge banding ($6 at home centers) to cover the exposed edges (Photo 2). Use the same drawer slides you used for the drawers.

Because wood is relatively weak perpendicular to its grain, screws don't hold that well when screwed into the end grain.

Getting screws to hold in end grain

This firstly because the thread has a harder time cutting into the grain fro the side, and also because what it does grab shears out more easily, as the shear is cross-grain. Wood screws do, however, hold extremely well in cross grain. So the trick to making screws really hold in the end of a piece of wood is to give them a bit of cross-grained wood to bite into. The easiest way to do this is to put a hardwood plug into the wood, 5/8" or 3/4" in diameter. Drill a hole that goes nearly through your piece of wood with a forstner bit, and then glue the dowel in place. The illustration at left shows how far the screw would penetrate, if it was actually in the wood. My First Project.
