Toy costruction #53: Making a spoked wheel

05-19-2016 03:37 AM by htl | 14 comments »

Here’s a quick how to for making spoked wheels. Please watch this video it’s where I got my ideas on how to do it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OpmuusMTl-o I just used the windows Snapping tool and copied his plan but it’s at an angle so not right.If I was to do this again I would draw up a better pattern. As always changes are made to suit the tools and ability. First I cut out all the parts using my holes saw set.My wheels are for a 2 3/4 wheel and made adjus...

Segmented Bowl - 1st try

04-26-2009 02:33 AM by Woodhacker | 16 comments »

Until recently my lathe experience has been 50 or so pen/pencils, a few miniature goblets, and a couple small 5 inch bowls over the past few years on a Jet mini lathe, enough to want to try other lathe work. This past fall I was fortunate to have the opportunity to acquire a PM 3520B, but due to other work and priorities I’ve not had a lot of time to use it yet…and that’s “killing me”. So this blog documents what I consider my first significant lathe project. Recently a partially segmen...

OK, The French Veneer (at last) #6: Drawers, Dowels, and Dovetails

10-28-2014 03:32 AM by shipwright | 23 comments »

Well all the colour decisions have been made and the flowers are glued in. The next job is to build a jewellery box to glue them onto. I have decided on Baltic Birch plywood for the carcase because it is very important that the top and bottom do not warp. With no ends on the carcase itself the outer reaches of both are supported only on the back and inner edges.The bottom, back, and top are dovetailed and the dividers are in dados. I veneered both sides of the bottom and dividers but won̵...

Ribbons in Cutting Boards

07-27-2014 02:52 PM by prospector45 | 9 comments »

Several years ago I saw this ribbon design at segmenting.biz/inlayexample. I started by selecting the body of the design. In this case, padauk, yellow heart, aand hickory for three boards. Then I laminated the “ribbons” Then I cut 2” holes in the boards that make up the body of the design. The problem for a flat boarder(cutting board) was how to create the plugs without a center hole. The first idea was wood turning but this would require a massive square of exotic wood...

The EZ mitre technique

07-26-2010 10:55 PM by BritBoxmaker | 78 comments »

Hello all. Well I seem to have whet the appetite a bit so here goes for a ‘novel’ technique for making mitred boxes. Its a bit like making a box out of paper, like they showed you at school, using a ‘net’. Only in 3D, with wood and a tablesaw (not sissors). Well first comes the board Its made from alternating strips of Maple and Rosewood of varying thickness. I won’t bore you with the details on how to make it suffice to say that all the corners must b...

Hand Tool Journey #11: Crown Handle Replacement Surgery..

05-07-2013 01:35 AM by Airframer | 12 comments »

As mentioned in my Workbench Blog I was planning to replace the gents style handle on my 8” Crown Gents Dovetail Saw with a more suitable one. This will be more of a photo essay than anything but lets just say most the pics are of take 2 of this event lol. I am pretty happy with myself for getting the saw kerf cut free hand with nothing more than a scribe line and a HF flush cut saw :-) Sadly I was so “in the moment” that I forgot to take pics of the procedure. I hope ...

The Basement #40: New Sharpening Jigs

02-04-2014 09:46 PM by JL7 | 28 comments »

Made a few more updates to the sharpening cart. Last cart update is HERE. I was inspired by Randy (DIYaholic) with his blog HERE But don’t tell him that, his head is already swollen…....here’s the proof: Also got some inspiration from Joey (joeysjunk) HERE for the t-track idea. I got a hoard of free MDF, so that seemed like the way to go for the base. 3 layers glued together with a pair of 3/4” pockets for the “wolverine” style bars to slide...
