Wind chimes

10-12-2012 04:36 PM by Stevinmarin | 8 comments »

Making wind chimes is a really easy weekend project. If you decide to take the time to make a set, spend a little time making them sound pleasant. Check out Lee Hite’s web site, “An Engineering Approach to Wind Chime Design”. It contains everything—and I mean everything—you’ll need to know about chimes.

My attempt at a 3D cutting #1: 3D Cutting Board Inspired by SPALM!

01-13-2012 11:14 PM by RetiredCoastie | 22 comments »

Quite awhile ago SPALM posted his project for a 3D cutting board: http://lumberjocks.com/SPalm/blog/17488 the more I followed his progress the more I wanted to build one myself and thanks to SPALM’s ripping jig and his idea I began building. Along the way I found myself in need of various clamping jigs that would make this project as easy and as accurate as possible. The journey begins:I built the ripping jig that Spalm built and ripped my stock with the blade set at 30 deg. using sc...

Curved Doors; Raised panel & Six light glass #9: Inside curved panels

11-28-2008 01:58 AM by Les Hastings | 10 comments »

I just got through doing a project that hand some curved raised panels, but instead of being outy’s these were iny’s. I go through the same process to make the panels the only difference is the way the profile on the edge is run. I purchased a horizontal router table from Woodhaven to help get these made and a vertical raised panel router bit that matched the all the flat panels on the project. Like I said the process is really close to the same, its just the way location of the...

Building a wooden shoulder plane #6: Tune me finely...but how do I adjust the iron?

05-30-2011 08:50 PM by Div | 27 comments »

Body done, wedge done, plane iron done. If you are anything like me, eagerness to see some shavings has replaced all other desires at this stage! With a bit of luck, paper thin shavings will be curling out of the mouth. Isn’t it great! If not, don’t despair…. LET’S FINE TUNE: 1. True the plane sole. This is done with the blade in place but well away from the mouth and the wedge set up tightly as it would be in use. Why? With the wedge set, our plane is in “tension”. The wood actuall...

Double Tumble Cutting Board

05-31-2011 03:11 AM by SPalm | 40 comments »

Or maybe I should call it Two and a Half Steps. Anyway, I cannot believe that I am building another one of these, but heck, they are so much fun. This is a continuing saga of endgrain geometric boards using three contrasting woods. A light color, medium color, and dark wood selection are jointed and planed to the same thickness. I started by tilting the blade to 60 degrees and ripping an edge on all three boards. I then moved the blade over about an inch and ripped again creating a sma...

Wood Library - Janka Hardness

05-19-2008 09:13 PM by GaryK | 24 comments »

A measure of the hardness of wood, which is produced by a variation on the Brinell hardness test. The test measures the force required to push a steel ball with a diameter of 11.28 millimeters (0.444 inches) into the wood to a depth of half the ball’s diameter (the diameter was chosen to produce a circle with an area of 100 square millimeters). It is also a good indicator of how hard a species is to saw or nail. The results are stated in various ways, which can lead to confusion, es...

145 - Greene & Greene Coffee Table Pictorial

04-18-2011 05:24 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 12 comments »

Download Low ResolutionDownload High ResolutionSubscription Options Every year, I like to take some time off for my own woodworking eduction. I truly believe that a craftsman never stops learning. Even when you think you know all there is about a technique or topic, there is always something to be gained from another perspective. A 5-day class at the William Ng School fits the bill quite nicely for an educational adventure. The William Ng School is located in Anaheim, Ca and features cla...

Secrets of the String Box Revealed #1: Intro and Invitation

08-25-2010 07:10 AM by newTim | 15 comments »

This summer’s projects have been boxes. Lots and lots of boxes. Somewhere along the way I got the idea of combining the wrapping technique with a simple inlay to see how hard it would be to align the lines all around the box. In other words, at the corners. Turns out it is not that hard to do. So I’ve been experimenting. I’ve posted the first completed boxes as a Project and will post more upon completion. The photos below give an overview of this technique and the pi...

I am very sorry that the tutorial is still down. I lost all the pictures and just have moved on to other things. But the good news is that others have come to the rescue with their own tutorials and are just as good…even better than mine.Here is one by Scott http://lumberjocks.com/projects/58221Andy
