How I made my Intersected cutting board

02-18-2011 08:54 AM by GaryK | 34 comments »

Here is how I made my Intersected cutting board posted here. There seems to be a lot of interest in this board so here is a blog on how I made it. First of all here’s what I planned on making. It’s the top one. After I got both the circles intersected I liked how it looked with the rounded corners so I just added in the “wedge shapes”at the top and bottom and called it done. I think that it makes it very distinctive also. As one person guessed I ...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #10: Can you cheat on a router plane?

02-18-2011 06:40 AM by Mark Shymanski | 2 comments »

I feel so disgusted with myself, just three weeks ago I was on here publicly declaring my involvement with a router plane, now the despicable creature that I am my attention has turned to a mortising attachment for the drill press… And wow do I like the mortising attachment; I brought my mortising chisel, gooseneck chisel and my trusty red oak mallet to class today figuring I would be spending my time chiseling out the mortises for the cross members to my stool. Ryan stopped by and ...

Cherry bookcase

02-18-2011 06:16 AM by umbach | 6 comments »

Well, my bookcase is nearing completion. I’m pleased with most of it thus far. This was my first go round with hand cutting all the mortise and tenon joints and they are all fairly decent. My hand tool skill and knowledge is really improving thanks to The Hand Tool School by Shannon Rogers. Sadly, my basement is a tad cool and the stain didn’t dry over night. So in went the portable heater all day to help the drying process along. Hopefully by tomorrow I’ll be applying th...

Thanks Dad.

02-18-2011 06:05 AM by Shawn K. | 8 comments »

This could start as a tool gloat, and really should be, but will eventually become a project. Because I can’t seem to write briefly, succinctly, or other synonyms for short, I’ll just go with it. I’ve mentioned before that my father was the one who inspired me to woodworking. It was something he did to either save money, to make money with restored antiques, or to repair things around the house with a bit of flair thrown in for good measure. Over the years he collect...

Top Secret....Rocker for my Wife #8: Problems and questions

02-18-2011 05:40 AM by bues0022 | 2 comments »

The problems have been piling up almost as fast as the sawdust! First came the seat. I put up some questions about warping wood last week. Long story short, the piece of spalted maple that is supposed to be the middle 1” of the seat warped and cupped terribly after machining it flat. After much consideration (and lack of finding any more spalted maple in my area), here’s my work-around plan: First, I steamed the pieces (2×1x9.5×22) for almost two days. Then I clamp...

Just Signed On

02-18-2011 09:18 AM by Wudchuk | 6 comments »

I got hooked on woodworking 50 years ago in high school and have always been going to have tools to do some. I’ve gotten several of the tools and still add to that on occasion. I grew up in the Midwest but got dislocated to California. My family still has land back there so when I’m there I’m picking thru the woods. I have nearly 1000 bdft of black walnut and last deer season I realized that I was standing next to some storm damaged red oak. I have the logs at a sawmill righ...

Modified Rousseau Table Saw Fence Sides

02-18-2011 09:18 AM by mxrdrver | 2 comments »

I recently purchased a Rousseau table saw stand for my Bosch 4100. I bought the 2775 ythat’s made for the Bosch saws. They’re not cheap. I paid more for this stand than I did for the table saw that I bought off of Craigslist. Anyway, as good as the fence is, I still wanted to have the Biesemeyer feel with the slick laminate sides. I downloaded the instructions from Delta on how to replace the sides on a Biesemeyer saw fence. I used that as a guide and copied it. I bought some 1/2&...

My Grandfathers Woodworking cont... #3: A Few More Pictures

I had some trouble trying to get a good video of the lathe working but I’ll keep trying. In the mean time, here are some pictures of a sewing box he made for my grandmother. It was started in 1931 and completed in 1934. It has over 2300 pieces.
