How to make Bandings for Wood Inlay #2: .

07-20-2010 11:03 PM by Bob Simmons | 6 comments »

Once the banding segments are organized we can now focus on creating the interior design. We’ll need a few outer rippings that will sandwich the segments together and keep them in alignment. You’ll notice in the picture that the outer hardwoods are walnut and maple glued together. In this case the walnut will be on the inside with the maple on the outside. The reason for this is to create contrasting colors within the banding and also with the mahogany picture frames that will...

New clamp holders and box joints on the bandsaw

07-20-2010 11:02 PM by stefang | 23 comments »

Hi everyone, I’ve been trying to make a few small changes in my shop. One of the changes is to make my clamps more accessible. I have been needing to do this since I installed my sliding work benches about a year ago. I thought someone might like my clamp rack idea and since I used box joints on it’s construction, I thought those with scroll saws who haven’t done jointing with theirs yet might like to see how I do them on the scroll saw. So what is this then? Not somet...

My 21st Century Bench Revisited #3: My 21st Century Bench Revisited #3:

07-20-2010 10:43 PM by fineamerican | 1 comment »

The Glue Dance Day 1Everything is all ready for glue up. This is always much more fun with a friend, but I have my Lab who provides my much needed supervision. So here is all of the stock Ive got, and remember it was free so my “Kitchen Sink” bench top will be mostly cherry, with a little maple and walnut for added flavor.I used every clamp I could find that of course was big enough. My battens were 2×4 wrapped in wax paper to keep everything as flatt as possible Day 2-I was...

20,000 LumberJocks Celebration #1: Day One

07-20-2010 10:36 PM by Martin Sojka | 83 comments »

I was dreaming about reaching 100 LumberJocks one day when I launched this website in 2005… Then, when it got going, 1,000 seemed likely but 20,000? No way! Fast forward to July 2010 and it’s party time once again in our family of 20,000 LumberJocks. I’m thankful and overcome with happiness that you decided to make this online community part of your life. Sometimes I come across a post about ‘the good old days’. Yes, ‘the old days’ were really good but despite o...

Beall Wood Buff

07-20-2010 07:48 PM by JAMCO | 7 comments »

Hello people, this is the first time I ever have done anything like this. So here goes. I have been using the Beall Wood Buff for over ten years. There is nothing like it. What once took for ever to lay down a nice wax job on some fine wood takes a fraction of the time, time we all know can be used for moving on. I do have a question. Does the Triploli wax have a experation date? Given the time I have had mine, I was wondering iif it needs to be replaced. The outhers are fine,but the ...

Now I've gone and done it.

07-20-2010 05:30 PM by BritBoxmaker | 24 comments »

Hello all I have a box design I want to do and it involves inlaying small irregular shaped pieces. How am I going to do it? I thought long and hard. Having already gone to acquisition level 2 once before. I’ve gone and got myself a scroll saw. Its only a cheapie at £55 ($84). 16”, 90 watt motor, tiltable table. I’ve had my first play. I’m using a piece of 6mm MDF as a zero clearance device. I’m quite impressed. The test for the inset pieces was easy. So I d...

Notes from the workday. #2: Aikiko's knife rack delivered. New old project.

07-20-2010 05:12 PM by vicrider | 0 comments »

I finished the knife rack and delivered it to Aikiko. She was very appreciative and felt it would compliment her new maple kitchen. I hope she gets another several decades of use out of this one. Also took delivery of a Homack ball bearing double tool box that I traded for some bathroom repair work back in February. This resulted in 1/2 day of sorting and repositioning hand tools. I even have a few empty drawers! One benefit was that I located a few things I thought were missing; including...

Packing the shop - again!

07-20-2010 04:36 PM by bigfish_95008 | 4 comments »

I am presently in the process of packing my shop. This is the 3 time in 5 years I have had to do this. Each time there are more tools than the time before. The place we are presently living is a bit high priced for just my income. The need to reduce our monthly expenses forces us to move. My wife has been trying to find work for about a year since I transferred down here. She has had several good opportunities come here way, but ends up being second in line. It has been very frustrating for h...

Daily Update #73: Make-A-Wish Bed

07-20-2010 03:04 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

What’s happening in the shop for July 20, 2010 . I took a break from my normal schedule to build a Batman bed. I just got the order yesterday and has been put in as a rush order. It is from the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Tennessee. They have a “Make Over” next Monday and need me to build a batman themed bed. It doesn’t take long to build it but it has to go through the finish shop and then to graphics and then have to ship it there in time. I need to have the buil...

Lathe Projects #1: Woodturning - Slim Vase

07-20-2010 02:33 PM by David Craig | 6 comments »

Been awhile since I had shop time. The last three weeks have been pretty much on call and vacation with the kids so it feels good to get back to work on some things. As I progress on the lathe, I have been wanting to experiment with more delicate turnings. Much of my work has been more heavy handed so far and I wanted to work with curves, thinner walls, and trickier hollowing. I had a small log I discovered that had been sitting in the basement since the beginning of time so I mounted it a...
