Cutting Board: How To's #2: Zig Zag Cutting Board Patterns - Inspirational

10-05-2010 09:19 PM by McLeanVA | 22 comments »

I was absolutely overwhelmed by the positive response to my Zig Zag How To blog post yesterday, that I decided to brainstorm some possible combinations (on my lunch break) using the basic steps I outlined yesterday. All of the same techniques and steps apply, and really the only difference is the woods and measurements that make up the original “sticks.” Same rules apply to width = height. Length is up to you. Please experiment with whatever measurements and combinations strike...

Cutting Board: How To's #1: Zig Zag Cutting Board - How To:

10-04-2010 11:38 PM by McLeanVA | 51 comments »

For those of you who asked me for a tutorial on how to make the zig zag legless vegetable death table (cutting board), here is my best shot. I am far too impatient to take photos when I work, so I decided to illustrate the process using some good old Adobe PhotoShop. I hope you find this useful and informative. I will outline the process in 10 steps below. I have assumed that when viewing these steps that basic woodworking skills are familiar to you. If you have questions, or run into snag...

Shop Projects #2: Clamp rack / organization

06-15-2014 04:44 AM by William Shelley | 10 comments »

I’ve been spending some time lately working on some organization projects. During the assembly of the bandsaw I’ve been working on, I ended up adding a large number of F-clamps to my arsenal and they have not had a home. So it was time to make a place for clamps to live. I didn’t take a lot of photos of the construction process (and let’s face it, these are simple and straightforward, not very interesting stuff), but below are some photos of the nearly complete rack...

Tap and Screw Jig Tutorial #1: Intro/Screw Dimensioning

11-25-2011 03:28 AM by CartersWhittling | 49 comments »

Hello. This is a new blog series I am doing. The topic is how to make a tap and screw jig for making large wooden screws. To start I will say that I hope many of the readers find this series useful because they can use the knowledge to make their own screws and nuts for clamps, vises, presses, etc… It took my friend and I hours upon hours, spread over months to finally get a functioning tap and screw jig. So my purpose in writing this blog is to give other woodworkers the proper inst...

How to ensure no one is stealing your images or otherwise not crediting your work online

08-19-2013 09:05 PM by BTimmons | 10 comments »

I saw this thread and thought it was important to share this bit of information. You can now use Google image search to reverse look up an image to see where it has been posted. If anyone has copied any of your images that you’ve included on your projects or blog posts and posted them elsewhere, you can see it using this simple method. 1) Open up one of your project pages, and also open a tab running Google image search. Click any image of your project and drag it towards the tab ...

Transferring Images to Wood #1: Day One - Prep Work & Stickin It To the Man!

06-20-2013 11:28 PM by KnotCurser | 10 comments »

Due to a recent project I've posted, I have been asked by many LJ’ers to do a blog on just how I was able to get such a clear image fixed onto a piece of oak. Here goes nothing…......... Items Required An Image (flipped horizontally) printed on a LASER Printer. It can be color or B&W – either work just fine in this application. Paper – Regular copy paper works just fine. Do NOT use photo paper – it will most certainly not work. Wood – I prefer a light color...

Curved Space-Time Cutting Boards

05-24-2013 02:58 PM by caocian | 10 comments »

I should start by saying that I make these boards for friends, all of whom hang them up as kitchen wall art. They have no intention of ever using them to cut on. For a more functional board, I prefer a simpler design, incorporating an end grain surface. But for decorative boards, this process is easier and the result is satisfying. To make any of these boards, the technique is pretty much the same. First, select your stock. For me, this is usually leftovers, off cuts from larger projec...

Shop Stuff #3: Sharpening Gouges and Skews on the WorkSharp

05-24-2013 05:55 PM by SPalm | 20 comments »

This is part two on my journey of sharpening my lathe tools. The first part was a Fingernail Gouge. Now on to the standard Spindle Roughing Gouge (SRG) and a Bowl Gouge. Both of these gouges are sharpened at 45 degrees. I started out making a triangle ramp to lift the gouges at 45 degrees, with grooves to roll the gouge in, but I gave up on it for now. One problem that I had was that my roughing gouge is not a perfect circle – it is more like a smiley face. It would not roll well in the ...
