Project "V" #1: Shop Made Drum Sander Project

2064 days ago by Emeralds | 32 comments »

A blog sounded like the right place for this prattle, so I submit this for anyone who is interested. The drum sander is one of those things that you know you can live without until you actually have an opportunity to use one. When I was given a demonstration by a friend at a local cabinet shop on a work piece I had been struggling with, I was instantly sold. The only real problem was finding the $1800 bucks needed to get a similar unit. Even if I could have sold my wife’s car, and replaced...

The Impossible Staircase

1495 days ago by Div | 48 comments »

Sometime last year I was approached by a client who wanted a very unusual staircase for a new house he was having built. It had to consist of a single beam with the treads straddling the beam. To make matters interesting, the beam had to have the shape of a compound bow when seen in plan view. To make matters even more interesting the beam also had to have concave sides when seen in section, wide at the top, narrow at the bottom.No structural plans were available and the architect had only pr...

Staggered Steps Endgrain Cutting Board

1495 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 Impossible #6: Its high time, Cymbaline

1505 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 31 comments »

You are not going to believe how simple this glue-up is going to be. Some of you will not believe it will work. Others, possibly some of the cutting board purists, will say I’m cheating. Frankly Scarlet I don’t give a damn (name that movie). This is a box top and all its joints don’t have to be impervious to water, like a cutting board. I will flood the top of the pattern with a clear epoxy finish ultimately, anyhow. These are the players in this little drama. Left, t...

All in One Jig Part 1 #1: Diamonds and Triangles

1763 days ago by dustbunny | 42 comments »

After posting the quilted lazy susan project, http://lumberjocks.com/projects/21623, many of you said you would like to see the jig for this project. I set out immediately to upgrade the jig. There were cuts I wanted to incorporate into this jig, and my original was warping and needed repair anyway. So here it is – 24” X 33” I am pretty proud of this jig, not only because I made it, but because the cuts made from this jig are right on the money. The first ...

Making Wood Quilt Blocks

2097 days ago by WoodMosaics | 16 comments »

First of all you have to determine what shape you will need that you can make accurately and repeatedly. This is where my jigs come in. I was to poor to buy several miter gauges so I made mine out of angle iron and bar stock. I made them set close to a certain angle, adjustable just a little. This first picture shows the back side of one of my jigs on the saw. This one is set at 45° like 4 of my jigs are; (Now on any of these pictures if you want to see something closer just click on t...
