My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1450: More New Scroll Saw Designs!

11-25-2014 01:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

Today's post is going to be rather short (well – by my standards anyway!)  Both Keith and I are working very hard to get some more new designs to you for your holiday crafting. Keith just finished a beautiful new set of ornaments that are in his very popular filigree style. I believe he finished up the pattern last night and he should be making them available on the site sometime later today. I think they are just stunning: I also have been working on a couple of new sc...

Shop built Sliding table for Tablesaw #4: Sliding table almost finished

11-25-2014 01:01 PM by Todd Swartwood | 6 comments »

I made quite a bit of progress yesterday, thought I would show some of those pictures and than go back to the build process. After getting to this point I had to make a test cut, I was not disappointed. I used a 4 X 4 sheet of 1/4” mdfthe cut was so perfect no adjustment is necessary. I will get back to the build a little latter today. I must say I am like a guy in a tool store with excitement. All I have left to build is the outrigger, and will work on that t...

Workbench Build #10: More on the vise end cap

11-25-2014 06:00 AM by Mark Kornell | 3 comments »

Trimming the tenon cheeks and shoulders was fairly straightforward. The hardest part was flipping the 200 lb slab every 5 minutes… There were two issues. First, the tenon shoulders weren’t coplanar. In fact, they formed a kind of X. I doubt my collar jig was that bad, so I’m inclined to think there was a lot of flex in the circ saw, and probably exacerbated by the blade burning issue. The second issue is that the tenon depth was uneven. That’s a layout problem. ...

Barnsley Reproduction Build #6: Mortising Guide Block

11-25-2014 03:50 AM by stevo_wis | 2 comments »

I have 16- 45 degree mortises to chop in the frame and the stretcher for this table. I made this guide block and the photo below shows the half assembled block with the two angled guides that I will chisel to. The small block with the holes in it are a drill guide that I will use to drill out waste before chiseling. That guide will be slipped into the block loosely and after drilling it can be pulled out for chisel work. I am hoping that the drill guide holds up but I have a buddy who sai...

Vega PRO 50 Table Saw Fence

11-25-2014 02:49 AM by Kurt T. Kneller | 2 comments »

I just ordered the Vega PRO 50 Table Saw Fence System for my rigid table saw. I have been wanting a new, better fence for years. The factory fence always gave me headaches. No matter what I did it would not hold square to the blade and to make it worse it would creep over time towards the blade. After yesterday’s kick back, albeit not related to the fence, I had to address the risks of having another kick back and its potential outcome.I have been shopping around and researching fe...

Box Making #3: Inlay veneer dilema

11-24-2014 09:28 PM by robscastle | 4 comments »

Does any LJ understand the method of construction or demonstrate how this Inlay strip is manufactured ? Joe Lyddon and I have been discussing it and I must admit I was curious about it on the purchase day. Here is one of the replies Joe and I have been conversing about I had another look at the inlay veneer strip in an attempt to determine how it was made.I have a small hand held microscope I used to use for stamps, so using that I found the following Observations:Obs 1: It is d...

Arts & Crafts Dining Table (In The Fast Lane)

11-24-2014 08:32 PM by justgrif | 0 comments »

Quite a while back, I decided my little townhouse needed a proper dining table, despite not actually having a proper dining room to put it in. I like to entertain friends and enjoy cooking as much as I do woodworking and wished to have somewhere for everyone to sit together. I had little room for a full size table and decided I wanted to build a drop leaf so I could stash the table against a wall or behind the couch and I ended up settling on an ambitious (delusional??) design based strongly ...
