Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #6: Additional Update

12-13-2010 04:17 AM by lew | 21 comments »

I got called up to active duty- substituting full time in an Information Systems Technology class. So this update has been sometime in developing. Back in the early spring of this year, I had the very great pleasure of meeting the Mason Dixon Wood Working Club. We got together to learn how to make these Celtic Knot rolling pins. During the workshop session, LJ Karson suggested that it would be easier, and less wasteful, to make a saw kerf for only the walnut strips and leave the origina...

Progressing Forward

12-13-2010 04:17 AM by matt garcia | 7 comments »

Well it finally wamed up enough around here to do some glue ups. I got my feet made and glued up, and attached them to the base. Then I routed the edge of the base, and made the transition moulding and glued that. Now a mother cold front has come through, and it looks like it might freeze tonight!! Good thing I got busy in the shop yesterday. I also went to Clark’s for some secondary lumber. It must have been my lucky day Saturday!! When I arrived at Clark’s, first thing ...

So you think you can go pro ? :) #4: Burnout

12-13-2010 04:11 AM by sawblade1 | 11 comments »

Good evening LJ’s This weeks post focuses on something that unless controlled can sneak up on you in a hurry and cause serious injury to you, your family, your business and potential customers!! What Is this threat? How can I prevent it? Well I’m glad you asked :) It is called burnout a(n) epidemic that plagues small business owners, it is a level of fatigue and frustration that no man can describe. It isn’t a fast all of a sudden type of attack it creeps up over time, sl...

My First Bandsaw Box #5: Step 4: Cut Off the Back of Your Box

12-13-2010 03:45 AM by Jonathan | 2 comments »

This part sounds pretty simple, right? Well it would’ve been if only I’d have used the K.I.S.S. method. See the picture below and try to anticipate what might go wrong here: My first problem was my overall saw setup. Of course, I didn’t realize it at the time, or I would’ve switched parts out. Do not try to use these three things in combination with eachother: 3/16” blade, fence, and the Carter Stabilizer. I had just cut the outline of the box and didn̵...

Jewlery Amoire #2: Jointing - Video

12-13-2010 02:15 AM by Zuki | 6 comments »

I decided to video blog this section. After I did the jointing and did a few calculations I realized that I need more wood. I think I’m going to pick some D4S at Home Depot as planing and jointing takes a fair amount of time. There is no sound the first 10-15 seconds . . . so don’t turn your volume up REALLY high. Just be patient.

Contemporary Cross project #5: Layout and edge sanding

12-13-2010 01:50 AM by kevinw | 0 comments »

Here I have laid together the two identical/opposite pieces to see how they look. I toyed with the idea of swapping the two sets for more contrast but decided that would be confusing to a viewer. The next step is to edge sand the exact curves on the edges. You must do this before cutting your shiplap joints. If you cut the joints first and then sand the edges they will not fit properly. Be certain you have the sander base square to the sanding disk or you will have fit problems also. B...

Got Me Something Cool In The Mail!

12-13-2010 12:49 AM by Maveric777 | 18 comments »

Well, I was out in the shop yesterday when my lovely bride walked in holding a package for me that was just delivered. Then I remembered all the harassing text messages I sent to my favorite coon ass Cozmo35 asking for a chisel mallet (I don’t know the technical name for it so that is what it was referred to as…lol). You see, he lucked up on a good deal on a lathe. Well, me being the good friend I am wanted to be sure he had some projects to keep him busy. After all…. isn...

Puppet Theater #3: Building the "Wings"

12-13-2010 12:10 AM by Patrick Jaromin | 5 comments »

Now We’re Getting Somewhere The front came out so nice, I’ve updated the design to include frame-and-panel side wings instead of plain edge-banded cherry ply as I had originally envisioned. It’s been a busy couple of weeks and there hasn’t been much shop time available, but I’ve scraped together enough hours — usually after bedtime — to finally cut, shape, and assemble the side panels (the theater’s “wings”) and prop the whole thing up. Now w...
