Table saw sled #1: Trial run

05-03-2013 03:27 AM by mIps | 1 comment »

Sometimes finding out what doesn’t work is the best way to find out what will…So, I had this great idea about combining a panel sled, miter sled and cut-off sled into one, grand unified sled. I had my plan and executed it to the best of my abilities. Sadly, it didn’t work. Even more sadly, I don’t think it COULD have worked. Oh well.That failure led to a re-vamp of the cut-off sled to a more traditional design, omitting the panel cutting idea completely. I still want t...

Curvature jig

05-19-2013 03:00 PM by Mrmyke | 1 comment »

Hey guys I’ve started bending some wood. I used 1/2” ply and a bunch of 2×2 cut up to make my forms. Some of the pieces of pine cracked in half/pulled out of the plywood while bending. Does anyone have any tips to make a better form. I’ve googeled trying to find some forms but was only able to find one source. If anyone has any tips it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks mike.

Works in Progress #2: Humidor test build - first pics

01-17-2014 02:35 AM by Jerry | 1 comment »

This is a picture of my first test humidor, obviously it’s a work in progress. I’m using box joints like this for it, and I am using the Freud box joint table saw blade set. I chose some cheap hemlock because I was not sure how well I would do. Aside from some tear out because my table saw jig was set up ( sawn through ) for 3/4” depth of cut, and now for the build I’m using 1/2” wood and depth of cut, it didn’t come out too badly. The tear out problem was...

Marquetry Serving Tray #1: Introduction/Design

05-24-2014 11:50 PM by jmartel | 1 comment »

My mom approached me about doing something for my father for Father’s day. Only requirements were that it was to be something for their boat, and that it have the boat’s name on it. Other than that, I had complete creative freedom. I came up with the serving tray idea since they frequently prepare food down in the galley and have to bring it to the back deck for eating, and they currently just use some plastic serving tray. For the design, I decided that a prominent Compass ...

Christmas Projects #1: Started my Christmas projects.

11-22-2007 07:08 AM by Sgt_Lobo | 1 comment »

Well, as I said in last night’s blog, today I started 3 projects that I need to finish in time to send off before Christmas. So I guess my insomnia paid off though because I was able to draw up my plans, measure and mark all my wood last night which made cutting today go allot quicker. So, today between baking pies and pumpkin bread, I managed to cut all my pieces to length, rip them to width, and miter the ends. Not bad for a days work. Heres some pics/teasers… 1st pic...

Copper Patina Gate II #4: Cut the Arch

07-12-2009 05:30 AM by newTim | 1 comment »

So here’s a step by step process I used to cut the inner and outer arches. The basic plan is to dry fit the door frame, set up the pivot for the circle jig, cut a groove for the outer arch, move the stiles out of the way while keeping the arch clamped in place, cut a groove for the inner arch, use a jig saw to cut through the grooves, then use a flush trim bit to finish the arch cuts. Step 1: This time around I learned to cut a board to fit in the middle and mark its location on th...

Floating Top Plant Stands #2: Leg subassemblies assembled; sanding next.

01-12-2011 06:41 PM by Lee Barker | 1 comment »

Cherry is a peculiar critter in the way it responds to heat. It seems to be a char, but it’s not dark like other woods are charred. It’s more reddish. Even stranger, in milling the round tenons, this reddish stuff appeared on the dowels and it was like a thin crust—it could be popped off in places. It is not like charred wood, it’s more like a substance was drawn out of the wood by the heat and it cooled. Past midway in the game I figured out how to minimize i...
