Creating Intarsia-The pattern

04-06-2009 03:35 PM by wdkits1 | 9 comments »

By now you all have seen the intarsia of the 1953 Ford F100 pick-up that I recently completed and maybe you were wondering how I go about creating such a piece .When my son was building my web-site he asked me to give a description of what intarsia is and I told him to look at my pieces and come up with a definition. This is what he wrote—- Intarsia – the experience of merging Nature’s beauty with human ingenuity; finding the perfect combination of woods to express an object...

Log bed Sakura (cherry) #2: Head board half way around.

04-06-2009 11:59 AM by Junji | 3 comments »

This is my first rustic project, and now I know a little bit of log wood difficulty. It took so long to peel the skin, and after that, I wondered how to make the tenon out of these irregular shape logs. So looked around the internet and found there are products call log tenon cutter, or log tenon jig, but not so easy to get these in Japan, and if I order it by internet from US, it will take a long time and extra money for shipping. I looked some video of log tenon jig using router, I thought ...

Sewing Center #8

04-06-2009 07:35 AM by robbi | 9 comments »

Yadahooty….got some shit done!! I got the doors done and the top, half way. There are really two tops, one will be cut in two pieces and will flip out at right angles to make more work space. I only glued one of them up so far. According to the directions I was supposed to put the doors on already but I decided to wait until I do the top, sometimes the order in which they want you to do things doesn’t make much sense. Next big step is to install the sewing machine lift and cu...

WorkBench #2: Some more Pictures and the plan..

04-06-2009 04:18 AM by grimt | 0 comments »

As promised here are a few more pictures.. First up the beech after planing: My car does not have a huge amount of room for carting around lumber and putting this stuff on the roofbars was out of the question so I had to roughly dimension the stock before carting it to college. I used my framesaw I ordered from Europe last year. It has a Japanese turbo-cut blade. I was really impressed with the speed with which this saw cross-cut the wood.. I also have more traditional wester...

Router Table #3: More progress

04-06-2009 03:45 AM by Jamie | 16 comments »

Well guys, Once again, an update to the Router table. got quite a bit done today. overall I think it is going to take about 3 – 4 weeks given the time I have in the shop. Enjoy!!! Rear Dust port installed (not permanently yet, still have to put some poly on the finish). The base plate allows me to attach a different port setup if needed like a 90 deg angle, etc.Fence is now partially finished. Installed the braces and dust port with a little glue and 1 1/4” recessed screws...

The Super Sled #3: Mitering Fence

04-06-2009 02:12 AM by John Nixon | 7 comments »

I just completed the latest video in the Super Sled series – the Miter Fence. Cut accurate and reproducible miters with this shop made miter fence designed for use with the Super Sled. Using a stop block for repeatable cuts allows you to get the exact same size pieces each and every time you miter. This versatile setup can cut a wide range of angles safely and accurately on the table saw. The Miter Fence video for the Super Sled series shows the construction of the fence and two dif...

Downstairs Built-ins Extravaganza! #4: The saw and I get chummy

04-06-2009 02:00 AM by BethMartin | 14 comments »

So I’ve been doing my research on table saws for the past couple of days. I have a lot of tools, but I have never used a table saw – just jigsaws, circular saws, miter saws. I don’t think I’ve even really seen one used before. My dad used a radial arm saw, and that was a long time ago anyway. The only thing I really knew about table saws was that ripping boards was very precarious. First step was to download the table saw’s owner’s manual since my friend...

There's A Table in There Somewhere! #2: Milling the Stock for the Legs

04-06-2009 01:53 AM by CedarFreakCarl | 8 comments »

I went down to the my lumber heap down in the barn and retrieved a couple of 4×4’s, a 4×6 and a long (16’) 1” thick board of variable width. My intent was to get enough stock for the table legs and aprons. As you can see, there are plenty of nails to be pulled.Of course I had my trusty Lumber Wizard to make sure I got them all.Good news and bad news. First for the good news. I pulled lots of nails.Now the bad news, a bunch of them broke off due to age and rust. Nor...
