Knitting box #2: The initial design

05-21-2009 01:00 AM by Luke | 2 comments »

I designed this box myself and I used google sketchup to make the preliminary drawings. It worked great and I can even reference the drawing to make sure every thing is coming out the planned size. The knobs look weird because I didn’t have the skill to draw the brass knobs that I plan on using.

Planing end grain cutting board

05-21-2009 12:50 AM by DuaneEDMD | 4 comments »

The current project I am working on is an end grain style cutting board that will sit on top of my cook-top and cover the griddle when it is not in use. The board is 12” wide and 22” long and was 1.5” thick. I glued up my blanks, cut them, rotated them to expose the end grain and glued again. When I was done, the entire length was fairly square side-to-side and front-to-back but had a slight bow over the length. My guess is that I applied too much clamping pressure and bowed...

Knitting box #1: Getting the rough shape of the box

05-21-2009 12:35 AM by Luke | 2 comments »

So I started with 8/4 zebra wood that I bought off my brother. He builds bass guitars for a living and had some left over wood. I resawed the wood down to about 5/8” on my craftsman 12”(given to me by my father in law) with a Woodslicer 3-4, 1/2” blade from highland woodworking… Amazing blade, if you have a bandsaw and need a resaw blade for it check them out because it cuts like a hot knife through butter compared to ANY other blade I’ve used yet. https://www.hi...

05-21-2009 12:34 AM by Milo | 3 comments »

Too many projects, but what to do first? Here are some of the projects I have planned, and the order I was thinking of doing them in. 1) Workbench (duh), Modified Nicholson design.2) Sharkguard (I plan on making my own) 2) Super Sled crosscut sled3) Miter Saw Cart w/ extension4) Plywood mover5) Cy...

391challenge pen #1: Challenge 391 pen

05-21-2009 12:31 AM by jeffthewoodwacker | 5 comments »

During Tim’s round three of the pen swap Karson put in several blanks of cherry burl and offered up a challenge to all lumberjocks to turn a pen from the cherry burl blank and post the results. When the pen trade box made it’s way to the west coast Steve threw in several spalted willow blanks and offered another challenge to all lumberjocks to turn a pen from his blanks. I posted the pen that I turned from Steves spalted willow blanks in the projects section, but in case you mis...

From Logs To Lumber #4: Got some more Cherry logs today

05-20-2009 10:15 PM by alaskan79 | 4 comments »

Well today had another Cherry that was standing that was dead. I cut it down and it was bad in the middle so I took off a couple blocks from the end. It then was sound so ended up getting 4 more logs from it. The largest one is 20 inchs on the small end and 8 feet long. Also knocked down a Hard Maple that the roots were out of the ground. I didn’t have time to cut the logs from it so I just anchorsealed the end for now and that is a project for a different day. Henry

New photo's of old work

05-20-2009 05:59 PM by Don Kondra | 10 comments »

Greetings, I finally made time to reshoot some of my work with my relatively new Alien Bees studio strobes and a “focus gray” paper backdrop. First up, a small side table in colored and crackle lacquer. The rail joint is a half lap, rail to leg is mortice and tenon, the top is attached with bolts through hollow cylinders into insert nuts in the bottom of the top. The turned cones are press fit in case I ever want to undo the bolts to remove the top. The base is BC maple...

Need advise from the pros and others LJ‘S.

05-20-2009 03:38 PM by TraumaJacques | 19 comments »

Hi guys and girls, let me preface this by stating that I am “not” a professional woodworker and probably “never” will be. However I have been selling pieces here and there and have outfitted my shop with the proceeds. Something happened to me for the first time this week. Two ( first time clients) changed their minds mid project and are asking for an entirely different design, the third was not satisfied after 2 weeks and wants a brand new product. All three iss...

002: a rolling base for my planer #2: flush sanding, a drawer, and a nice big mistake

05-20-2009 01:33 PM by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

I got the casters on yesterday, cutting some scrap wood board to fit along the edges inside the bottom, and joining them in with pocket hole screws from underneath. Extra sturdy now, and the wheels are all in plane with each other. I wasn’t sure how tall they were, and it was critical, as I was designing this to be as high as possible, while still fitting comfortably under my work table. I have Rockler’s digital height gauge, and it showed me they were all exactly 2.5” (actu...
