Cutting board build blog.

1600 days ago 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...

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

1424 days ago by McLeanVA | 50 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...

My Maloof lowback #1: Its on!

943 days ago by Antti | 6 comments »

After reading Maloof’s book last summer, I ordered the DVD and templates from Scott Morrison, claiming the lowback to be my “winter project”. Now its (actually “they” as I’m making a pair) on the way as I officially have completed the first few steps: Glued the templates on plywood, cut out with a bandsaw and sanded to line: Milled, ripped, ripped to 3 degree angle, cross cut the seats: In fact, after sleeping on it a couple of weeks, went back...

Works for me #1: Lumber Rack

1665 days ago by Dave Owen | 8 comments »

I learned a long time ago that there are many ways to do just about anything imaginable. Some work better than others – but the main thing is that they do the job. I’ve decided to write a brief blog from time to time describing something that’s ‘worked for me’ in my shop. If you have a better idea – that’s great! If you can glean something from my idea that you can use, that’s great, too. I’ve decided to start with my lumber rack. ...

Drunken Cutting Boards #1: Drunken Alice in Wonderland Cutting Board

1814 days ago by poroskywood | 41 comments »

Hey everybody, after a few personal messages here is my version of a how to on a Drunken Checker Board. I of coarse bow to the Chairman of the Board and pay tribute with beer. This is a Off-Checker pattern I call “Drunken Alice in Wonderland” The “serendipitous” nature of this piece is appealing in a far out sort of way. Here Goes… So first I prepare the Material. I am using Hard Maple and Walnut both are surfaced flat and cut 1” x 9” x 14&...

Hal Taylor Rocking Chair #11: New book and design chair completed

1700 days ago by NY_Rocking_Chairs | 0 comments »

I finally completed my first chair using Hal’s updated plans and book. Having already built 8 other chairs I did not read the new book cover to cover so I cannot comment on the contents of the book. There is a lot more detail and some of the hazy areas from the first book were definitely cleared up with better description and more pictures. The primary design differences are the arm shape, the arm to front leg joint now gets an adder piece that needs to be carved down and shaped an...

Top Secret....Rocker for my Wife #5: Sizing and Planning

1365 days ago by bues0022 | 10 comments »

I’m sure it’s just taking me longer since this is my first chair and I’m making design changes before I even start, but I think I spent nearly 3 hours last night reading and re-reading the first chapter of the book planning out my cut list and organizing what kinds of lumber I need. I’m picking it out tomorrow morning, and I want to be prepared. Of course, all of my preparation will likely go out the window when I get there and have to pick out my wood based on what...

my attempt at a Maloof style rocker

1322 days ago by Paul | 27 comments »

We all love this rocker and so I though I’d have a go at one.My wife and I have a house with a nice size porch and so we went out and bought these cute to be assembled rocking chairs to sit on out there. They are the most uncomfortable chairs I have ever sat on in my life. After 15 minutes in them I have to get up and move around to get the blood moving again. They look nice from the street and accent the front of the house but that’s about it. With the shop calendar clear, I have...

Hal Taylor Rocking Chair #1: Week 1

1934 days ago by NY_Rocking_Chairs | 5 comments »

After having received several requests for a detailed blog of a rocking chair build I spoke with Hal Taylor and received his permission to do this. This chair is based on his first book and set of plans. He has a new book with updated plans which I am getting soon. This is not a full-time job for me so I will be posting one week at a time since I get to spend maybe an hour every other night on the chair. Week one sees the planing and cutting out of all the blanks. I purchase 40-50 bd...

2321 days ago by Tony | 2 comments »

I promised Blake that I would undertake a short series on Finishing techniques – primarily using Wax. These three short blogs are the notes presented at a demonstration I gave last Friday evening. Sorry there are no photographs at the moment – not that there would be much to see. I hope you find it useful.————————————————————————̵...
