04-27-2016 11:53 PM by poospleasures | 6 comments »

Several of you have asked for instruction for making the all wood folding knives I,ve been doing for a number of years. Hope I can give that instruction through this blog series. If to many get fed-up with this please let me know to stop. Starting today 4/27/16 we will begin. It would probably be a good idea to have a folding pocket knife handy to be able to look to see the pieces we are talking about. I will be making three knives at this time. #1 is choosing the material. You can make the ...

Inlay Material #1: Source for Inlay Material in Gilbert, Az.

03-13-2016 06:39 PM by Jim Jakosh | 10 comments »

I have been using turquoise found in the desert here for inlay material and it is fine for flat work where you sand it down to the surface. But, it is very hard on cutting tools in the lathe. John Goodwin from Dead Tree Salvage put me onto a source he uses called Natural Expressions, Inc. in Gilbert,Az. Fred Thiele, the owner, is a great guy and he has rock from all over the world. He also had lots of different crushed rock for inlay material- both natural and man made. He has turquoise,...

Gain 10" of Table Saw Rip Capacity Without Drilling

02-16-2013 02:54 PM by knotscott | 12 comments »

Feeling a little restricted by your table saw’s small rip capacity, but don’t have the room for a 52” rip setup? If you’ve got a Biesemeyer or Biese clone style fence and a left tilt table saw, it’s very likely that you can gain in the range of 10” of rip capacity for next to no cost, and with minimal effort. There’s not many opportunities to rip on the left side of a left tilting saw, so if you’ve got a steel t-square style fence like a Biese...

The ABCs of Table Saws

09-21-2012 09:00 PM by knotscott | 25 comments »

Making Sense of Table Saw Classifications -Buying a new table saw can be a little confusing to an inexperienced buyer. The models, brands, manufacturers, and types of saws are in a constant state of change. What was true just a few years ago may no longer apply, so it can be difficult to get reliable information even from seasoned veterans if they haven’t been keeping up on the trends. Even seasoned veterans may be surprised at how rapidly the marketplace changes. To help simplify your purcha...

Woodworking for Kids

01-30-2016 07:56 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 18 comments »

When it comes to sharing woodworking with my grandkids, I keep it simple. In fact, I really don’t care if they take a shine to woodworking, I would just rather they get the opportunity to be creative. When they come over for a visit, they don’t ask if they can do woodworking, they just ask, “Can we build?” At this point, I have done very few structured projects, I usually just let the kids have at it with the bin of wood scraps. Kids don’t need to be to...

"Art Box" Tutorial #4: Corner Splines

06-23-2009 08:18 PM by Andy | 26 comments »

Updated 1/15/12 We now have our box assembled and glued up. Depending on the temperature, let it dry for a couple of hours, or overnight to be safe.Take the tape off and clean up any dried glue. This is a good time to smooth up the bottom to get rid of any rocking.You can double stick sandpaper onto a very flat and firm surface and slide the bottom across that. The problem with this approach is that sheet sandpaper is way too small. You can stick down several sheets and if you go very s...
