How to make a endgrain tumbling block butcher block board!

08-12-2009 12:13 PM by degoose | 50 comments »

Hi guys ,, I had a request to make a tutorial with regards the endgrain Tumbling Block Design.First off,.., You need to decide the size of the blocks…. for this example I used 1” stock… Or something similar.. actually just over .. once dressed. Set the blade of the table saw to 60 degrees.. a bevel box makes this simpleI use the INCRA fence system so it is easy to rip bevels off side of the blade.Once the bevels are ripped measure the length of the bevel and move the f...

random #24: list of favorite woodworkers

08-12-2009 08:20 AM by Gary Fixler | 1 comment »

While searching up something else on the Google last night, I stumbled upon an exactly 900 day old post on our very own LJs site in which user ToolCrib asked the question Who are YOUR top five most influential woodworkers?. ToolCrib (Garrett) then went on to compile that list to his own site here. I thought I’d repost that effort on the 900th day as a little look back at who everyone thought was inspirational a few years ago, but then I fell asleep early, so here it is, 901 days later :)

An Office for the House -- Complete With Woodworking Projects #2: The Desk Is Born

08-12-2009 06:41 AM by RobH | 5 comments »

I finally got the drawings for the new office desk done tonight. The journey of coming to this solution is an interesting one. When we first talked about setting up the office, I sat down and drew up a corner desk made out of melamine. I was not sure my wife would like it, but she assured me that everything would be ok. Whether she liked it or not, I did not. There is not another piece of furniture in the house made out of melamine. I was going to build it, but I probably never would ac...

Limbert Lamp Table - Stickley #240 #4: Template Routing

08-12-2009 04:50 AM by CaptainSkully | 9 comments »

I was able to get back out into the shop and make some progress on this project. This was my first foray into template routing. I can definitely see the power of this technique. I was able to knock out the inside, decorative cuts on all four sides and they’re identical. They need almost no sanding. The slight errors in the template were the only problems on the finished sides. It took only a light hand sanding to fix those. I didn’t have too much trouble with wood grain, ...

Building the Shop #3: Electric

08-12-2009 04:40 AM by unklegwar | 17 comments »

My panel is full, so I have to put in a subpanel to get any room for shop circuits. I picked up a 100A 2 pole for the main panel to feed a 100A Square-D main lug panel with 6 positions (12 circuits). This is where all those years working with dad as an electrician really pay off. I figure I’ll need: 1 – 220v 20A circuit to cover my saw and any reasonable upgrades.1 – 220v 20A circuit for future dust collection (starting off with Shopvac)2 or 3 120v 20A circuit for g...

Building the Shop #2: Walls

08-12-2009 04:30 AM by unklegwar | 5 comments »

So far, here’s the plan for “finishing” the walls. Subject to change as I see new and different cool stuff to buy. Exterior walls will be DryLok-ed, then Insulpink with 1×3 furring strips held by Tapcon screws right into the block. Sheathed with 7/16×4 x 8 OSB (at HD it’s only $1 more per sheet over sheetrock, and this will hold a screw anywhere, no hunting for studs). Inner walls will be OSB over 1×3 (no insul) One framed wall will be OSB ov...

My First Rocker #9: Assembled - but not yet ready for prime time - and of course a question or two

08-12-2009 03:55 AM by Betsy | 12 comments »

So here’s proof – that I’m still around. I’ve taken a long break from the net as I found I wasn’t getting anything done! I thought I’d just pop on and show you the progress on my rocker. Obviously from the pictures the main assembly is done. I have to do the plugs and final sanding. For those who have done this chair – you’ll notice I used 11 seat slats instead of 10. I did not like the spacing for 10 slats so I changed the spacing and added ...

Bowling Alley Workbench #14: Chop Chop Laddie. (the leg vise)

08-12-2009 03:44 AM by PurpLev | 13 comments »

This project is a fine example of the 80/20 concept. it takes 20% of the project time to complete 80% of it, and then, 80% of the project time to finish the last 20% of the project. As it gets to the details, things take longer to think through, plan out, cut…mill…glue… and finesse. this time it’s the leg vise Chop, and although not completely finished (still need to trim, round off, and apply BLO), it’s construction is done. I was originally planning to us...
