The Band Saw Accessories...made in the Shop #2: Bandsaw Crosscut Sled

11-15-2010 09:42 PM by Bob Simmons | 17 comments »

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. Charles Darwin…(1809 -1948) English Naturalist Sometimes as woodworkers we face a variety of situations that require some versatility and a little thought. This occurred to me one day while making wood inlay bandings in the woodworking shop. There are times that I feel quite comfortable making crosscuts on the 10 inch table saw using one of my cross cut sleds. Howe...

Electrolysis For Jappaning Removal?

10-22-2010 04:29 PM by BradJacob | 9 comments »

I’ve seen a lot of electrolysis to remove rust from iron. In the examples, I’ve seen the paint come off. I’m restoring hand-planes and wondering why the Jappaning will not come off, while some other paints (in you tube videos) seem to fall right off – with electrolysis? Will electrolysis remove the jappaning, or just “regular” paints?

Sand Blasting - Hand Planes

10-22-2010 07:36 PM by BradJacob | 8 comments »

There is a lot of info here on L.J. I see some real nice work from you guys… Was wondering what kinds of sand blasting equipment you use for small tools. I looked on Harbor Freight and saw this: http://www.harborfreight.com/portable-abrasive-blaster-30979.html Will this work to strip off paint from a hand plane (and other small items) ? Or do I need something bigger like this: http://www.harborfreight.com/110-lb-pressurized-abrasive-blaster-95014.html Any help would be ...

Another Cutting Board Design

07-12-2010 05:00 PM by SPalm | 26 comments »

I am in the process of building another board and thought I would share my thinking process along with some build pictures. When I came up with the design for the Steps board, I was thinking about how one draws a 3D box on a piece of paper. You draw a large square, and then add small mitered edges to one corner to give the appearance of seeing it slightly from the side. Making these miters out of two different woods adds to the shadows, which adds to the effect. I did this for the Steps b...

Cutting board build blog.

04-12-2010 04:10 PM by Sinister | 30 comments »

I recently uploaded pictures of a cutting board (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/30543) and several fellow LJs asked me to show how it was put together. Subsequently, Patron quickly deduced the process and wrote a nice blog showing the step by step process for how to achieve the pattern. I encourage anyone who is interested to take a look because he has some nice pictures outlining the process. http://lumberjocks.com/patron/blog/15074. I thought I would add a short amendment to his blog de...

Constructing a Modern Sofa Table - The Video

02-14-2010 11:16 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 21 comments »

Share the Love This modern sofa table was built for donation to a charity fundraising auction. This slideshow was played to generate more interest in the table by highlighting the construction process. Generating more interest generates more money for the charity. The auction was a bit disappointing overall, but my table brought in the more money than anything else. Funds raised at the auction help support programs for people with developmental disabilities. The winning bidder ask...
