200+ Wine Bottle balancers #1: Wine bottle balancers for the wedding

692 days ago by CueballRosendaul | 9 comments »

About 10 years ago, I made a batch of those wine bottle balance pieces for Christmas presents. When my step daughter was here, talking about gifts for the guests who make the long drive to her wedding, I suggested these would be pretty nice. I was thinking like 1 for each couple, so maybe I’d be in for 50 or so pieces. Her first request was for 275 pieces! DOH! She later downsized it to 125, but I already had lumber cut for 200+ so she’s getting about 175 and I’m keeping th...

The Super Sled #1: Shop Built Tenon Jig

1956 days ago by John Nixon | 8 comments »

I finished the latest accessory for the Super Sled – the Tenon Jig. It’s pretty darn easy to build. Given the cost of commercial tenon jigs, you could easily make this one with the scrap plywood you have laying around. The Tenon Jig’s features include: - micro adjustment feature- built in scale- unique leveling system For PDF measured drawing of the Super Sled and the Tenon Jig, go to the project page and click on the “Browse This Projects Files” link towards the top:h...

The Cross-Cut Sled

1189 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 8 comments »

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options ThenOne of the first fixtures I ever made for my shop was a cross-cut sled. Heavily-influenced by David Marks, I modeled it after his design. The sled opened up a whole world of possibilities for not only cross-cutting, but joinery as well. I didn’t have a reliable compound miter saw at the time so this versatile fixture really helped me get the most out of my limited tool set. Here's a pic from the old days! ...

I’ve seen people posting boards with diamonds and thought that was cool…..I built a diamond board a few weeks ago HERE... and I just finished this one today: So this blogs covers today’s board… For a change, I started with some nice wide timber. No scraps in this board. This is Yellowheart and Tigerwood: Cut into 1.5” by 26” strips (but I should have made them a bit longer). I don’t plan real well on the front end….4 of each ...

Intarsia Basics #1: Introduction and Invitation to All.

865 days ago by KoryK | 36 comments »

Hello to all and all are Welcome, Intro: Hi, my name is Kory Kiker and a couple of weeks ago Ms. Debbie contacted me about conducting an online class for those interested in learning the art of intarsia. I was very excited about the chance to share a few things I have learned in the last three years of doing intarsia art. Before intarsia I did a lot of wood carving so I hope this helps give each project more depth and definition. I will tell you now that most of the things I’ve lear...

There's A Table in There Somewhere! #4: Tapering the Legs

1883 days ago by CedarFreakCarl | 4 comments »

For any of you that were following this, I’d like to apologize for the time gap between #3 & #4, but I had to get my garden planted and also do a little work for the community. I’ll blog the community work later. Anyhow, now that all the stock for the legs has been milled square, it’s time to taper the legs. The legs on this particular table are rather large, so I had to come up with an alternate method to the table saw. I had recently read an article in one of the ...
