My Evolving Woodshop #1: Grizzly G023RL Arrives!

08-02-2012 09:31 PM by javaboy | 2 comments »

My new tablesaw arrived today. I had been wanting to upgrade from a 20 year old G1022 contractor’s saw for quite a while. After doing a ton of research online, aided by many of you wonderful folks here in the Lumberjocks community, I finally pulled the trigger on the G1023RL late yesterday afternoon. Even though I am only about 2 hours away from Muncy, just across the river in NJ, I never thought I would get the machine today—I figured on having the rest of the week and this weeke...

Kitty Condo - CAD/CAM primer #4: preparing files for the CNC router.

08-17-2012 06:03 PM by Mainiac Matt | 0 comments »

So far, all of the design work has been done as 3D solid modeling using Solid Works. Next, 2D CAD files need to be created for each routed part, and I went ahead and laid out the parts on the panels so I knew how much material I’d need to bring in to work (fortunatley… I have permission to use the CNC machines on the back shift after my normal working hours). I prefer to do the 2D work in Auto CAD, as it’s faster for me. Here’s the layouts for all three ~ 44...

Mjolnir (part 2)

10-24-2012 01:33 AM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

To see the pictures, please click here. After finishing up the leg vise yesterday, I had a little bit of time leftover and decided to get cracking on Mjolnir (yeah, it thinks a lot of itself!). I finalized the design and drew it on the handle. It has the typical laminated mallet shape, tapered inside the head to lock the handle in place. I decided ti add a little detail to the handle and a pommel. Totally not necessary but I’m having fun now. I started to cut the handle free...

Finally slabbed my log

11-10-2012 05:12 PM by zlatanv | 10 comments »

I have had this log in my driveway for a long time and finally had it slabbed. It sat out there through the hot summer sun and started to split, I painted the exposed cuts but still was splitting, I was afraid i was turning it into firewood. After contacting a few sawyers I found one that was close and I could schedule it with. After we cut it up, WOW! It is beautiful inside, lots of burl, splatting, I was amazed, Cut it into 2 in slabs. I have it stacked under my patio to dry out some...

Instead of using metal for the sacrificial anode I’m using carbon. It’s WAYless messy… to work with. The only way to clean up rusted objects of any kind.. Anyhow… here are the results from today.. Before: and AFTER:

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #919: Completed Dragonfly Tray

12-31-2012 01:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I am going to keep this short today because I have lots to do and need to get moving. I had a good day yesterday and not only did I finish the tray that I showed in yesterday’s post, but I made good headway on drawing up the pattern for the next project. I am on a roll . . . I loved the way the little dragonfly tray came out, but I also wanted to offer some suggestions to add color for those who wish. I can’t decide whether I like the colored version or the natural versio...
