Making a dust hood for my Ridgid oscillating sander

1653 days ago by SimonSKL | 17 comments »

After reading many favorable reviews of the Ridgid oscillating sander (model # EB44242) and with a 15% rebate offered by the manufacturer, I finally bought this sander as my Christmas present. The more I use it the more I like the sander. I would have given it a 5 star rating if it has better dust collection capability when the belt sander is used. The dust just got collected at the end of the belt and landed all over the floor. I thought there must be a better way to collect the dust. Here i...

Tutorial - Inlay Banding - joint project of Ellen35 & moonls (Lorna)

504 days ago by ellen35 | 19 comments »

As a result of Lorna’s posting of her bow box, several requests were made regarding how to make inlay banding. We are not experts by any measure but here is our joint tutorial on making “wolf’s tooth” banding. We watched many videos and did lots of practice pieces before getting even remotely adequate at it. So… here goes! PREPARE THE WOOD:In this example, we used 3 woods: maple, walnut and mahogany. We prepared the wood in the usual way by making sure it was flat and square. We used 4” x ...

resawing #1: At last, a resawing jig!

1865 days ago by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

I got 2 1” Timberwolf blades from Suffolk Machinery Corp. – 2TPI and 3TI – several months ago, and have been dying to try them out ever since. In that time I had several more projects, mom’s 10-day long yearly visit, my best friends’ wedding, a project I built for that (that I should post one of these days), and so much else. I didn’t want to use them until I had a resawing jig ready to go, so realizing that time was now, I jumped on it yesterday, later in ...

My New Router Table #1: First Go at Sketchup, what a cool program!

2453 days ago by Blake | 13 comments »

I have always liked CAD programs but have used them very little. I was an engineering major for a short time in college and took a few technical drawing classes, which I loved. I always thought it would be neat to own some sort of CAD program but never bought one. I think it is great that Google now offers one for free! I had never heard of Sketchup before I found LumberJocks. Anyway, I am building a new router table for my Incra fence+positioner, so I thought I would give it a go. The pro...

The best part is, you can get exact-width dados EVERY TIME! This jig was developed and demonstrated in the current Guild Build as part of the Wall-Hanging Cabi...

The Wavy Larry- my jig

1654 days ago by dustbunny | 18 comments »

I’ve had several LJ’s request pics of the jig I made for the wavy Larry board. I’ve snapped a few pics and sent PM’s with bits and pieces of info individually. Mikethetermite asked for some info a few days ago and I decided to bit the bullet and take the time to do it as a blog. Here goes- On my band saw table I have a sacrificial board- 3/4” plywood squared and framed to the table. The back frame piece unscrews and swings up to put the board on and off the ta...

rosewood / curly maple /purpleheart / lacewood #2: heres the tutorial for the starburst .

1752 days ago by patron | 25 comments »

you asked , so here is the way to do this ..to start this ” cut and switch ” proses ,figure out your width of stock , by laying out your circle , and deviding it into as many ’ pie pieces ’ as you like , and as many concentric circles as you want .at the edje of the inner circle , measure the width of the ’ pie crust ’ , and rip your wood wider than this ,as it needs to be cut later to final size .and make somewhat longer for the same reason ..this is a sl...
