Inversions cutting board tutorial

09-15-2011 03:50 PM by jadams | 11 comments »

In response to some questions about how this pattern is made… I’m not sure if this is the only method, but here’s how I did it. Here’s the original project I posted: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/53452 Hint: When you look at the board, long ways going left to right, every row is a different size, but every group of 2 rows are all the same size! Solution: First you rip strips like you would for a regular end grain board, but in a progression of widths from l...

Using a router to make the "Lazy Larry" #1: Making the "Lazy Larry" using a router and router jig.

06-19-2009 02:14 AM by Ampeater | 8 comments »

Degoose showed us how to make the jig that uses a bandsaw to make the spiral sections of his “Lazy Larry”. Well I made the jig, but my old small bandsaw just wasn’t up to the task. I wasn’t about to quit, so I decided to try to make a jig that I could use with my router. It took me awhile to figure it out (using Sketchup), but once I did, it was rather easy to make the jig. Here is how to make the jig. Picture 1. 1. Cut a 3/4” thick piece of MDF ...

Turning Bowls from Green Wood - Tricks and Techniques

06-20-2012 04:38 PM by RobertJ | 6 comments »

IntroductionI’ve been turning large chunks of un-seasoned firewood since I started turning bowls over a year and a half ago. Much of the wood is turned without regard to it’s moisture content…I don’t have time to wait thru the recommended aging periods and I don’t choose to rough turn bowls and set them aside for a few months before turning them a second time. This isn’t about attitude, it’s about loving the experience of turning and accepting the cha...

Notes on French polishing

06-03-2012 08:15 AM by Beezle | 4 comments »

Why French polish? For about a third of the projects I do, there is usually one surface that I like to do what I call a “guitar” finish. That is, perfectly flat, clear and shiny. As in, how most guitars are finished. The hunt for chatoyancy . And I have tried every path I could find to achieve that just short of spraying nc lacquer, which I am not going to bother with. The biggest disappointment for me has been water based “lacquer.” Not hard to work with. Used t...

Mug Build and Joining Experiment Using the Tilt Feature of my Router Lift

04-03-2012 08:46 PM by luv2learn | 14 comments »

This is my first attempt at blogging and I must admit that it has been more frustrating to do than actually building the mug experiment. A while ago I posted two mug projects on my Lumberjocks projects page. Mugs and More mugs The steps I took to build all of them was the same. The only thing that changed was the materials that I used. Each of those mugs were built using 24 individual segments or staves. I joined a 7.5 degree bevel on each side of the staves then butt glued them to...

Table Saw setup for Half Lap Joint

04-02-2012 05:38 AM by rance | 23 comments »

When you need to set the height of your TS blade to half the thickness of your workpiece(regardless of its thickness), try building a teeter totter. A what? Like this:   Get a flat scrap of wood and mark perpendicular lines across equal distance between each other and from one end of the board. This is your teeter totter. Raise your TS blade higher than you expect to cut and rotate it so one tooth is at top dead center. Lay that flat board across the blade where the middle ...
