Kitchen Utensil Holder

63 days ago by lew | 17 comments »

Some time back, I made a small, box shaped holder for some of Mimi’s kitchen utensils. Everyone has a few things that won’t fit into the drawer or hang on the wall. Over time, it apparently shrunk- I guess the wood dried out- because nothing seemed to fit. I wanted to try doing another segmented turning, so this project was born. Cap’n Eddie has a video on making a dedicated jig for cutting segments. Using his ideas and borrowing a few from Frank Howarth’s miter ...

Cutting Board: How To's #2: Zig Zag Cutting Board Patterns - Inspirational

1292 days ago by McLeanVA | 22 comments »

I was absolutely overwhelmed by the positive response to my Zig Zag How To blog post yesterday, that I decided to brainstorm some possible combinations (on my lunch break) using the basic steps I outlined yesterday. All of the same techniques and steps apply, and really the only difference is the woods and measurements that make up the original “sticks.” Same rules apply to width = height. Length is up to you. Please experiment with whatever measurements and combinations strike...

Cutting Board: How To's #1: Zig Zag Cutting Board - How To:

1293 days ago by McLeanVA | 50 comments »

For those of you who asked me for a tutorial on how to make the zig zag legless vegetable death table (cutting board), here is my best shot. I am far too impatient to take photos when I work, so I decided to illustrate the process using some good old Adobe PhotoShop. I hope you find this useful and informative. I will outline the process in 10 steps below. I have assumed that when viewing these steps that basic woodworking skills are familiar to you. If you have questions, or run into snag...

Scraps to Coasters #1: Prep Work and the Glue Up

955 days ago by Doug McPherson | 12 comments »

I’m sure others have posted a project similar to this, so I’ll be brief on the description. This is just another great, simple way to get some use from those cut-off strips that accumulate in the shop. I start by gluing up several pieces side to side, first making sure that the sides are square and parrallel for a good lamination. I make each layer just over the sized of the width of what I want for the coasters’ width. ok. After they dry, I run them through the p...

So if I miss anything or seem to skip any steps let me k...

The EZ mitre technique

1363 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 68 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...

Staggered Steps Endgrain Cutting Board

1393 days ago by SPalm | 42 comments »

This is a new style of cutting board (at least new to me). I was thinking about 3D designs on the way home from work last week, after Martyn’s Blog and Steve’s Video. So I came up with this. Kind of Sinister, kind of Tumbling block. Once I drew it out, it reminded me of Staggered Stairs (which are kind of cool), and reminded Karen of the Steps on the Row Houses in Baltimore. So that is how the name came about. I started with 6/4 walnut cut into 10 inch strips. This small length makes ...

The making of a woodshop #6: Little by little

1484 days ago by JimNEB | 2 comments »

With fair weather this week the boys finished the roof, and started putting soffit up so things are making some progress. In a couple of weeks my nephew is coming to help me wire the project. I’ve been working on a wiring plan so will be making a trip to Menards soon to get all of that. For lighting I’ve got four 8’ double fluorescents and one 4’ that I’m planning on putting up there, I hope that will provide plenty of light for these old eyes. Along with the 2 s...

Set the blade of the table saw to 60 degrees.. a bevel box makes this simpleI use the INCRA fence system so it is easy to rip bevels off side of the blade.Once the bevels are ripped measure the length of the bevel and move the f...
