That was the mistake! - Inlay Banding

05-23-2009 01:54 PM by John8059 | 13 comments »

I am finally working on this project again and ran into another problem. You can find out how I got this far from blogs I posted earlier. Last time I showed how I set up guides to cutting the inlay banding grooves. I eventually got all the inlay banding installed, but when I went to sand it flush with the veneer I found I could feel that the resulting surface was uneven. If I could feel it, imagine how bad it was going to look finished! (Keep in mind my hands are trained to feel irregula...

Glue up of a woven board..

05-17-2009 10:31 AM by degoose | 19 comments »

This is just a little tip.. not the whole tutorial of how to cut and make a woven board.Basically you all can make the weave with the two accent stripes on each side.. right.[ ok just a length of the main timber with 2 stripes cut 1/16 or 1/8 ” thick and glued up. see the pics and work it out ]You can also make the background pieces from the other of the accent timbers the same width as the main weave less the accents.. ok so far.. so I don’t need to go though all that do I? PM m...

The Super Sled #3: Mitering Fence

04-06-2009 02:12 AM by John Nixon | 7 comments »

I just completed the latest video in the Super Sled series – the Miter Fence. Cut accurate and reproducible miters with this shop made miter fence designed for use with the Super Sled. Using a stop block for repeatable cuts allows you to get the exact same size pieces each and every time you miter. This versatile setup can cut a wide range of angles safely and accurately on the table saw. The Miter Fence video for the Super Sled series shows the construction of the fence and two dif...

Router Table #2: Pictures and current progress

04-04-2009 07:27 AM by Jamie | 7 comments »

Well this one is for Karson. Here are some pics of the new router table currently in construction. This picture is just a view from the front. The top consists of 2 pieces of 3/4” MDF glued together sandwiched between a top and bottom layer of black formica. I have not added the solid oak molding around the table top yet, but it’s ready to go. Probably will happen tomorrow, along with the face frame for the cabinet carcass. The top will be a bit over 25” X 36” ...

The Super Sled #1: Shop Built Tenon Jig

03-23-2009 12:09 PM by John Nixon | 8 comments »

I finished the latest accessory for the Super Sled – the Tenon Jig. It’s pretty darn easy to build. Given the cost of commercial tenon jigs, you could easily make this one with the scrap plywood you have laying around. The Tenon Jig’s features include: - micro adjustment feature- built in scale- unique leveling system For PDF measured drawing of the Super Sled and the Tenon Jig, go to the project page and click on the “Browse This Projects Files” link towards the top:h...

Decal Pen Tutorial

03-11-2008 09:24 PM by Kerux | 17 comments »

Here is what I basically do with my Decal pens. As you can see I use Testors Decal paper. This can be found at Hobby stores. I purchased mine at “Hobby Lobby.” Just follow the directions for printing out your logo, name…etc. One thing I have found using this material is that you MUST use a light colored blank for the background. This is transparent film, but the inkjet inks are not solid enough for darker colors. That type of decal must be purchased through professional m...

Swirl Inlay Using Table Saw Jig

04-15-2008 12:22 AM by Kerux | 23 comments »

Here is a tutorial on the “Swirl” inlay that I use, but with a twist, this time I made a little jig for the table saw. As you can see it is a small simple sled. I then took the sled and marked a line of what I thought would be a good angle for most pen blanks. I don’t know what the exact angle is… I just eye balled it. It is more than 45 degree’s of that I’m sure of. I measure up the blank as seen here so that a little less than half the blank ...

Kentucky Ice Storm #1: 18 days, no power, no heat, no water, no problem, yeah right!

02-17-2009 03:06 AM by jim1953 | 8 comments »

Ice storm hit on January 26, was 4 days before we could get down our road, all poles were snapped as well as the trees. Went 18 days with no power, we ate good though! The freezer was full of meat and thank goodness for gas grills! All of Western KY was without power, there were 2 hour waits at gas stations, which were few, no power to run the pumps, places ran out of gas, kerosene and propane. We did have a 60 lb propane tank for my wall heater in garage, I fashioned a stand and brought it i...
