When you have finished lathing your flute and have plane your sides and under the flute, take your flute and drill a 5/16 (7.9375 mm) (0.79375cm)hole in the mouth end until it goes into the SAC area. Now file the edge of your TSH and it doesn’t have to be sharp, your can have 2/32 (1.5875 mm) (0.15875) blunt end if you would like. The edge of the TSH will change the sound of the flute base upon how thick or thin the tsh is. Put your block on the sac and in front of your tsh. blow li...
A coffee table, we need a coffee table. Hmmm? This project, which is nearing completion, is a coffee table.No big thing typically. A set of legs, a few rips on the table saw, a little glue,some mortise and tenons and Bob’s your uncle. Not quite this time. I didn’t want to make “another table.” More than that, I wanted to build something where the timbers I wanted to use dictated the design.Well, partially—there was a height constraint which needed to be ...
There it sits, proudly in nearing completion glory. And it is almost usable! The dog holes, lower shelf, sanding, and finishing are all that is left to complete this project. I wasn’t sure I should post this one. The twist you see is an optical illusion. I have checked it with straight edges, levels, you name it. This thing is dead flat… My Central Forge 9” quick release vise fitted with wooden faces, and bench dog holes. Yes the back face of the vise is un...
The first diagram shows how the air comes out of the sac and how the block should sit over the SAC area the right side of the diagram shows what the area looks like with out the block.the last diagram show and exray side of a flute and how the air flows.
My 11 year old niece asked me if I would build her a desk for her bedroom so she can study. She’s my niece and my little gluing partner, so how can I say no? Problem is, I really don’t know where to begin and really not sure whether what I’ve came up with is ergonomically correct. I don’t have the money to go “all out” on something ultra nice and she lives in a double wide mobile home (Yep, we’re from Georgia), so she doesn’t really have a lot o...

If you have completed your flute up to this point you will want to cut a ramp towards the SAC where the air come out. (This is shown in the picture below.)Start measureing from the back of the TSH which is to the right and down in the photo, you measure 3/8 long (9.525 mm) (0.9525 cm) the 3/8 is the flat part. The picture shows that the TSH and SAC nest are routed down in the flute; we are not doing to do that, but it is another way of doing the nest.
Below are pictures of the kinds of blocks that sit on top of the SAC and in front of the TSH/The photo above is made from two kinds of wood. The dark wood is 3/8 wide, which is the same size as the TSH, the light wood was glued to create side flanges. The photo below is cut from one piece of wood The next two shows the under side of the block. as you can see I glued a 1/32 piece of wood as shown, this 1/32” (0.79375mm) (0.079375 cm) allows the air to flow from the SAC to the TSH. The...
So I’m trying to take Sketchup to the next level. I’m having fun with it, but it is taking me a while to get the hang of “Layout”. I designed this Craftsman Bookcase (based on WoodSmith) with Greene & Greene influence. I will build two of these starting this fall. The shelving has stepped scallops with Breadboard ends. I’ll put the ebony buttons throughout the joints, but they were just too damn hard to draw in.I drew the plans in “Sketchup” and exported to “Layout”. It’s a cumb...
To Flock or not to Flock that is the question:Whether ‘tis nobler of project to sufferThe slings and arrows of dedicated LJ’ers,Or to take arms against the sea of boxes,With the mitering of corners and maple keys;Ay, there be thy rub; perhaps ‘tis be the tung oil? Sorry for the poetic abuse. I won’t let it happen again. Mirror, Mirror in the lidWho be the fairest LJ’er of the Id?‘Tis not be that crusty DustyAl;Surely ‘tis be that crafty Karson fella,Exotic lumber and all. Woop...
