Routed Sign Making #1: Routed 'Sign Making Class'

12-13-2011 04:51 AM by 3DBMe | 13 comments »

We’re going to use a Dremel router to make a sign with recessed lettering. I suggest barnwood because of the contrast between the weathered surface texture and ‘fresh cut’ letters. I also have enhanced the letters by burning (pyrography) the edges of the letters for increased readability. Of course you can scale up to larger routers if you chose. Stock: Barnwood 2”x10”x24” Suggested material and dimensions Safety: Goggles, F...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #3: Cutting Spline Slots

05-18-2012 11:40 AM by Boxguy | 15 comments »

Boxguy’s Spline Slot Cutting Jig Want to add corner splines like this?,, You need a jig like this!..This hard working (and dusty) jig is used on almost every box I make, and is quick and simple to build. It has a wide plywood board for a base, a long “trough” supported by 45 degree triangles cut from a 2X6 and a handle so you can pull it back to you. (I just made the handle out of a forking branch.) The long trough lets me use this for boxes that are large or smal...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #2: Spline Making Jig

05-12-2012 07:13 AM by Boxguy | 10 comments »

The Spline Cutting Jig I use this jig to make all my splines. Basically it is set up to use the band saw to cut triangles out of a long thin strip of wood. It is just a board with a runner for the guide slot and another board fastened at a 45 degree angle. Cutting small pieces on a table or radial saw is a disaster. Your fingers wind up in wrong places and the small pieces fly all over the shop (not good). This is a job for the band saw! If it is done well the splines will look ...

dust stuff #8: check this one out

04-23-2012 07:33 PM by JoeyG | 17 comments »

As I sit here and wait for my walnut burl to arrive from UPS. ( My first internet order of lumber, I am a bit nervous.) I thought I would share a quick picture of my new box. I normally don’t share my projects when they are incomplete unless I am doing a blog or need a little advice on how to finish up a design. This time it is simply because I am so excited about it. This is my largest box to date. There is ruler in the picture to show scale. It is sized using the golden rectan...

Roubo Workbench #2: Choosing the Material

01-13-2012 05:17 PM by Brandon | 22 comments »

I considered a lot of different materials for my bench. At the top of the list were southern yellow pine, white oak, red oak, ash, cherry, maple, and beech. Really, I think you can get away with a number of species, but it generally comes down to a few issues: availability, aesthetic (at least for me), price, and of course suitability for the purpose. Chris Schwarz really advocates using SYP in his workbenches book and even uses it for his 2005 Roubo bench. The advantages of SYP is that yo...

Extension table for Jet Pro Shop JPS-10 Table Saw

03-31-2012 12:13 PM by KenBry | 13 comments »

Extension table for Jet Pro Shop JPS-10 Table Saw. When I went looking for ideas for an extension table for my Jet Pro Shop, I found allot of good layouts but I didn’t find anything on this specific saw. Being a true creature of necessity I went about trying to build my own table extension. Just to put this out there before you start reading too much, I am not including too much dimensional data because I feel everyone is different. Some people might want a smaller top some longer and s...

Disposable KerfMaker

06-14-2011 08:35 AM by rance | 31 comments »

Well, yes, the Kerf Maker is a very clever jig. I have a different take on its manufacture. I see a reason to have several, NO, Wait… Why not make them DISPOSABLE? :) I had a need to use one today so why not make one. Here it is:  I used a stick of about 1/2” square pine. Yeah, Pine(or is that Poplar?). And some double sided tape. Cut the stick in half. (I’m kinda protective of my tape. Can ya tell?)  Then stick both halves together with the tape. &n...
