Hands-on with the Shaper Origin

03-19-2017 09:43 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 3 comments »

When I was first searching for a CNC to add to my shop, I ran across an odd tool called the Shaper Origin. The tool was in essence a self-correcting router that works like a hand-held CNC machine. I spent some time watching the videos on their site and reading through the blog. It was a novel idea, though it wasn’t quite ready to ship (as I write the the first batch is slated to ship Fall 2017) and not really what I wanted/needed for guitar work. Still, it seemed absolutely incredib...

Woodworking Skills & Stuff: #5: How to cut a tapered sliding dovetail with a router- the EASY way!

01-12-2017 04:07 PM by StumpyNubs | 8 comments »

Sliding dovetails are super strong, and they look better than dados. But a lot of woodworkers are intimidated by them. Not anymore! This method is easy, and the tapered form slides together MUCH better than a standard one! Subscribe to Stumpy Nubs Woodworking Journal- our free monthly digital magazine, and WIN FREE TOOLS!

Covering the bottom of a box

11-22-2016 12:42 AM by DonSol | 5 comments »

This is in response to the method Boxguy uses and described in one of his project post. I told him I would post a blog showing the method I use now. Years ago I used the same method he does but this is so much easier, less messy and quicker. So here goes and I hope he likes it. I use picture mat board that I get from the Art Center here in town. Cut a piece about 1/16” smaller than the opening. If I have an odd shape box I will cover the opening with masking tape, cut aroun...

Building the Infill Shooting Plane #1: Getting on Target

07-19-2016 02:57 AM by JayT | 8 comments »

During the 2015 Plane and Spokeshave Swap, I built a couple of what came to be called Transitional Infill Shooting Planes. A few people asked for a blog, but there weren’t enough pics to really document the build, so it wasn’t done. Well, after completing a few other projects, I decided to build one more and will try to do a detailed enough blog that someone else could follow along and build their own shooting plane. Lets get started. Gathering materials. First thin...

Finishing #2: BLO, Oil, Poly

03-26-2016 05:41 PM by OSU55 | 6 comments »

Lots of questions come up concerning various “oil” and poly finishing mixtures and methods. Below are links to two articles by Bob Flexner that provide a great deal of information on the subject. The first is from 2008, the second from 2011. http://www.popularwoodworking.com/techniques/finishing/the_basics_of_wiping_varnish2http://www.popularwoodworking.com/techniques/finishing/oil-finishes-their-history-and-use The short and sweet version is plain old varnish, poly/alkyd/phenolic (poly...

making the wobble chess board

03-15-2015 05:57 PM by Jim Sellers | 5 comments »

For anyone interested in how the board was formed. the pictures of the jig tells most of the story.I sanded the tops one by one with an abrasive wheel. If I had to do it again I wouldn’t do any sanding til I had the whole board glued up. Even though I had the tops pretty smooth, after it was glued up, I still had to sand again to make sure the seams and corners were all flushed up. I made a couple of sanding discs out of a plywood disc and different grit paper which actually worked much...
