A neat and easy way to attatch a Logo to wood. #1: PUTTING CUSTOM LOGO ON WOOD PROJECTS

02-25-2014 08:58 PM by Hersh | 6 comments »

I have been trying different methods for adding a custom Logo to wood. I believe I’ve done just about all the methods on youtube and even the blogs here on Lumber Jocks. The other day I was thinking about this and wondered if there were clear plastic peel and stick labels that would work. Well there is. Some of the methods I have tried are: Water slide decals, Laser printer/copier transfers using a variety of solvents, T-shirt transfer, Heat transfers. I thi...

Shop Stuff #5: Machine Cut Through Dovetails

02-23-2014 05:32 PM by SPalm | 28 comments »

Simple, Fast, Easy, Thin Pins, Variable Spacing, Looks Hand Cut, Simple Set Up, Tastes like Chicken. I have been playing around with dovetails for the last couple of weeks. I have tried many methods of making them, as complete hand cut ones are just too much work for me. I own a commercial Leigh dovetail jig but I have never been happy with the look or the futzing that it took to set it up. So this is what is working for me, all ideas are cobbled together from other designs. I cut the pins...

Chevalet Build #1: Getting the lumber

10-06-2013 10:28 PM by Mike Lingenfelter | 6 comments »

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted here on LumberJocks, but because there seems to be interest in the Chevalet here, I thought this would be best place to chronicle my Chevalet build. I decided to pick up a Chevalet kit from Patrick Edwards. It came with full-size drawings, which was great. Although having full-size drawings in a small shop, was a little cumbersome. So, I decided to convert Patrick’s plans into a SketchUp model. I still have a few tweaks to finish on ...

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...

Some folks had expressed interest in the way to make these… this is how I do them…It’s going to be a long one so, settle in, make sure that you’re in your comfy chair, and with your favorite beverage within reach…I’m currently making two small boxes and have the first one up to the point where its nearly ready to close up. So my attention turned to the two pairs of hinges I’ll need…Since the top and bottom panels are Mahogany, I thought it wo...

5 Cuts to a "Perfect" Cross Cut Sled

03-01-2012 02:39 AM by wnwoodworkingschool | 50 comments »

I’ve been getting a few email requests for a video on how I calculate the error ratio and how to correct and construct a cross cut sled that’s dead on square. I’ve been demonstrating this at the Woodworking shows for the past 5, 6 years and I still get emails asking me about the error ratio calculations. So here it is. Material List for sled:Runners: 5/16” x 3/4” x 30” Base: 1/2” x 34” x 30” Front Fence: 1-1/2” x 5” x 30R...

Paint Can Bead Maker

02-17-2012 03:33 PM by 489tad | 3 comments »

The last time I needed beads I had to find someone to turn them for me. Well thanks to LJ’s daKremer and David William Bethune blogs on bead makers I was able to make them myself. I used the beads on the ends of necklace hooks for my Regifted Jewelry Box. I don’t have a motor hanging around but I do have a drill press. A unused paint can served as the container. A plywood disk with treaded rod shaft would spin in the paint can. I made the disk so it would just fit into the c...
