Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #4: Glue Up and Trimming The Blank- The Final Steps

10-06-2008 01:45 AM by lew | 14 comments »

Before starting this section, I forgot to add to pix into the previous post. This is the spacer strip used to reposition the blanks for the second cut. The spacer goes between the blank and the fence. This shows the blank seated against the rear stop and the blank is labeled to assure it is not reversed during the various cutting operations. I found it easier to glue if I oriented the blank with the diagonal cut facing up. I use an old restaurant cutting board as a gluing wor...

Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #3: Making the Saw Cuts For the Strips

10-05-2008 10:22 PM by lew | 3 comments »

Once the blank has the layout lines drawn, it is time to cut the slots for the ellipses. The first step is to set the blade height. When the cut is made, there should be about 1/8” of material left holding the two sides together. This really aids in the glue up by keeping the pieces aligned. Set the blank on the jig and adjust the angle and the end stop so that the front SHORTER layout line is positioned to the LEFT side of the blade cut. Orientation is when you are standin...

Recovery projects #6: Getting the tools ready again

10-05-2008 07:41 PM by Betsy | 6 comments »

OK so now I know I’m really on the mend. I’m planning, planning and planning some more! First thing I know I need to do since most of any major projects for a while will be hand tool stuff (with the exceptions of those trivets I want to try on the router table), I decided that I need to make sure my tools are sharp, clean and ready to work. With all that in mind – I’ve collected my sharpening things, my chisels and educational materials to prep myself to actually...

Another New Fangled Workbench #8: End in Sight

10-05-2008 07:56 AM by MichaelW | 3 comments »

I have actually had the bench in this stage since early September when my father in law was in town to give me a hand in mounting the top, beam and all, to the sled. It went on just right the first time which was rewarding, until I looked closer at the planing beam pipes and realized I was going to have to make some adjustments on the alignment holes in the top. After several go ‘rounds, we finally got that into a workable solution. Then I raised the planing beam only to discover it ...

Norms Router Cabinet #5: Drawers and Trays are done

10-05-2008 04:24 AM by sIKE | 6 comments »

Got out today and get the trays for the left hand side of the cabinet redone, I found a real cool piece of the ply for the drawer/tray fronts. I also got the three drawers for the bottom of the cabinet done. Tomorrow, I am gonna get out there and get the handles on the trays and get the drawers and drawer slides mounted. That should just about finish the cabinet base done, and I can start on the design and layout of the top. Much there I need to figure out.

Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #2: Laying Out the Blank

10-05-2008 04:24 AM by lew | 4 comments »

This second part will concentrate on the layout of the rolling pin blank in preparation for cutting the slots. Create a blank that is 22” long and 2” square. Locate the center of the length (11”) and carry a line around the blank. The ellipses are 11” long and made of three pieces of 1/8” thick materialLayout a mark 5 ½” on either side of the center line and accurately carry the lines around the blank. To assist in laying out the diagonals, use a 3/8” thick spacer gauge, drawing lines...

Hi all My wife just got diagnosed with breast cancer. As i’m sure you can guess its very scary. We have attacked the situation head on. The doctors all say that its 95% curable because its small and we caught it early. The type is DCIS hers is very small and still contained within the milk ducts (as far as they can tell). Debbi and I have both decided that she shouldn’t have to deal with the stress of every year going back for a mammogram and wondering if its going to come back...
