My Small Shop Tips, Tricks and Jigs #1: Make a Crosscut Jig (for circular saw)

01-30-2011 05:44 PM by Ryan Bruzan | 5 comments »

While it would be great to invest in a multi-function sliding table saw for precision cross cuts with precision guides, rails, stops, etc., such is not always possible for whatever reason. In this video I will show you my version of a $7000 cross cutting jig less than a 30-minute investment to make it. Enjoy…

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #241: Pictures!!

01-30-2011 04:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I really made good headway yesterday. Today I am in the home stretch of things and it is going to be really fun to see all four of these trays come together at once. I have never really done four at a time like this, but since they are all kind of different styles, it is rather exciting. I will get right down to business and show you where I am at with everything. I took pictures this morning, but nothing here is finished or even sanded for that matter. I do sand things to be pretty sm...

Making an ancient bucket MaFe #3: Scandinavian lag knife DIY

01-30-2011 03:50 PM by mafe | 10 comments »

Scandinavian lag knife DIYOr Mike meets Mads again… Updated 1 Februar 2011. So my go on the lag knife, Scandinavian style: The lag knife.I cut it roughly to shape, turned the round part for the ferrule on the lathe, added some curves and shaped it with a spokeshave, finish with a sraper and then linsed oil and beeswax. I added a ferrule, and then drilled three holes next to each other with a long drill.. Rasped out the wood between the holes. Even out of focus… ...

Router Table Extension Wing #2: Day 2

01-30-2011 05:53 AM by HungryTermite | 0 comments »

After the snag of the previous day I picked up a Milwaukee 7/8” hole saw. I was not happy that I had to buy an extra tool for this project but I have to say I was pretty happy with the saw. It cut aluminum really well and has a replaceable arbor so it wont cost too much if I need different sizes. Let me say, this would have been a lot easier if I hadn’t already drilled holes in the rail. Without a hole for the pilot bit to ride in, the saw really wanted to jump around. I cu...

I really think that January is not really conducive to going to the markets… yet again, no sales… I did however pick up an order for an painters easel… never made one of these before so will be a bit of a challenge.. So, stay tuned for this project.. Something rather unusual came into sight half way through the morning… As you all will be aware… I love the Louis Cube or Tumbling Block design… Well… ...check out the T-Shirt thi...

In the Shop #3: Shop Face-lift Completed

01-30-2011 04:57 AM by Hoakie | 5 comments »

Ok, is a shop really ever done?!? At least it is a major improvement over the last arrangement You may recall that I solicited suggestions for a proposed shop rearrangement a couple of weeks ago. The primary reasons for changing things up is that I felt a) the arrangement was very inefficient to work in and b) I’m getting ready to build either the 21st Century or Holtzapffel workbench and really wanted to have good access to all sides of the bench Since I’m going to update...

Shop to Shop

My wife regularly asks me to cut her some rectangular boards for her for the mixed media art she likes making. So today while getting some odds and ends for stool I’m building for a step grand nephew (I think that’s right; blended families can be challenging, anyways…) my sister asked me to build. So after giving the board a quick pass thru the jointer and planer, it was cut to be about 8 in square blocks. To pretty up the ends I took my smoothing and block plan to the lo...

Help with a good secondary wood

01-30-2011 03:56 AM by ocwoodworker | 3 comments »

Hey Lumberjock friends!! I’m building a walnut lowboy entertainment center and wanted to use a secondary wood for the drawer bottoms. I know the usual suspect would be poplar but I’m looking for something with good grain structure but cheap. (Are the two even possible?) I tried Charles Neil blotch control for Baltic birch plywood but alas it still takes a stain/dye poorly. Any success stories out there?

Watercolor Dye Technique #1: General Concept

01-30-2011 03:52 AM by shipwright | 6 comments »

This is the blog that I promised detailing my experiments in what I call “watercolor style” aniline dying. My sincere hope is that it will encourage some of you to jump in and help develop what I think is a huge potential of which I’ve only scratched the surface. The idea of hand dyeing pieces of inlay or marquetry came to me because I was frustrated by the limited array of colors available to me in the veneer and solid wood supply to which I have access. I was enjoying ...
