Vector patterns and modifying them for double bevel cutting

04-01-2014 10:17 PM by jfk4032 | 2 comments »

It was requested on another forum for me to explain how I capture my intarsia patterns digitally, create vector artwork, then modify that artwork for accurate double bevel cutting…so here it is for my LJ friends: I’ll try to explain the techniques I’ve developed for digitizing my patterns and using that pattern to expand the artwork for accurate double bevel cutting. Keep in mind, I just started intarsia less than 2 years ago, only have 7 projects under my belt and only tried double ...

A call for help

06-28-2014 05:14 AM by mIps | 2 comments »

I will freely state that I did not know this even existed until I checked one of the blogs I recently found and this is totally NOT my idea, but I’m spreading the word.April Wilkerson is a woodworker who’s blog of the day told of an email she’d received about , how they provide burials and cremations for abandoned and unclaimed children and that they are looking for volunteer woodworkers to make caskets or urns for abandoned and unidentified...

My Workshop #1: Laying out my space

10-20-2014 01:22 PM by Creed | 2 comments »

This is my first ever Blog post. I am just starting into woodworking and wanted a place to chronicle my journey. The first things I have been doing was watching countless YouTube videos and reading as much as I can to get a feel of the terminology and where I might want to begin. I decided the first thing i should do is plan out my work space. For this I have decided to set up shop in my Garage. We have a three car garage and I’m taking the back half and converting it. This space ...

"Thoughts on Wood Joinery" --by RusticWoodArt

04-30-2007 03:34 PM by frank | 2 comments »

Thoughts on Wood Joinery And so I thought I would write a little on the subject of: How do you join that wood? In what I am writing here I mean no disrespect to any workers of wood by calling some way as better or an-other way as lesser, but I am only trying to show that if one will pay attention to or take heed to their own calling, then the way will open up before them as to what works best in their attention to woodworking detail. —-been there, done that….hammered and air...

Safety First #1: Show off your Safety Gear

02-21-2009 03:42 AM by KnotWright | 2 comments »

We all love to show off our projects, and our workshops, and we even show off our mishaps. How about we take time to show off our Shop Safety Gear? Snap pics of your fire extinguishers, your first aid kits, your Safety glass storage, or your hearing protection, respirators? Let’s get creative and build a Safety Center. Maybe we could make it a contest. This way EVERYONE wins by bringing more attention to our Safety Gear. I think I’ll start my Safety Center first th...

Wood IDs #2: A look inside the second mystery branch

03-09-2009 12:17 PM by Gary Fixler | 2 comments »

It would seem Rob (user: socalwood) nailed another species down for me in my previous post – the Pride of Madeira – going off nothing more than one gnarled limb (which turned out to be the whole trunk and some branches of a small plant) and some withering leaves. Great job, Rob! I looked a bit more into one of the few branches of the second mystery species, and found a yellowy, eccentrically-ringed wood that seems to love to split along its length down its ring and ray lines. I...

From Logs To Lumber #5: Some more Cherry

06-08-2009 02:30 AM by alaskan79 | 2 comments »

Well got back into the woods yesterday again cutting some more wood. Got 3 more cherry logs and 1 nice White Pine log. Still got that Hard Maple tree to get the logs out of. Maybe next weekend if the weather holds and it don’t rain this week. Need to start getting the logs up out of the woods. Might be able to get some pictures posted this week. I am going to have a lot more logs that what I had planed on. Will have to measure them to see about how much I am going to have but I do know ...

Patio / Deck Bench #2: Frame just about complete

05-31-2010 02:43 AM by Blinky | 2 comments »

It was so much fun gluing the frame of the bench together (!#$%^&* *&^%$#) = need more clamps , I forgot to take pictures.I like how it’s shaping up though.This is after glue-up, before finish:To glue up, I wiped all mating surfaces (including the dowel holes), with acetone. I used TiteBond III; hope it goes well.To finish, I sanded down to 220 grit, wiped clean. I then wiped with acetone, and applied Penofin. I had to take it outside to see how it looks in its future ‘...

Butcher Block Kitchen Table #11: The Actual "Butcher Block" part of the table...

08-21-2010 03:36 AM by Jimi_C | 2 comments »

Lots of cutting the last 2 nights… It’s not glued yet, the clamps are just there to help me hold it together and measure stuff. Tomorrow I’ll start gluing the strips up 6 or so at a time, and run them through the jointer/planer all at once to ensure they’re the proper thickness. Right now, they’re just over 1” thick, so hopefully when I’m done they won’t be 1/2”... I’ve bailed on the end-grain idea – this is going ...
