Creating a New Design for my Bookcase Project Base

07-08-2009 02:39 AM by Andy Brownell | 0 comments »

I have recently completed a new base design for a bookcase project (same project as my last post). I’ve pulled some inspiration from other designs by Thomas Moser, and some basic Asian design influences. The case it very linear and almost boxy in it’s overall design. A sturdy dovetail case called for a base to lighten it up a little. I’ve come up with this design as my final version for this project. It is a shot of the underside of the bookcase to show the details. The c...

What can I do with this Burl

07-07-2009 10:41 PM by Karson | 50 comments »

I looking for suggestions for this burl. It was one of those purchases with no product in mind. I bought it 10 years ago so it’s well dried by now. It’s 30” high with a small flat spot, maybe 8” wide, on the bottom and 32” high. The flat spot is at least 2” thick, The rest of the burl is not as thick. It was sanded or planed flat when I bought it but it has shrunk as it dried so there are now low spots on the surface. The back is chainsawed flat, ...

Inlay Tools #1: Introduction and Radius Cutter

07-07-2009 09:59 PM by Jon3 | 1 comment »

I was very intruiged by Steve Latta’s DVD for Lie-Nielsen “Fundamentals of Inlay: Stringing, Line & Berry” and the associated line of inlay tools that they offer along with it. I learned (by way of the Villiage Carpenter) that Steve has been touching a longer course on inlay for quite some time, and used to advocate the manufacture of your own tools, in the style that Lie-Nielsen is now offering. When looking at those offerings, I did think that several of them could...

My Grizzly experience part 2

07-07-2009 09:18 PM by eastside | 5 comments »

If you read my first blog about my Grizzly experience you know I had to wait till Monday to buy a new bearing. I googled info on bearings over the weekend and this is what I found out. I was originally looking for the exact numbers and letters that the tool calls for 6205ZZ. The numbers are what is important that’s the size of the bearing. The letters designate weather it’s sealed, shielded or what ever. I needed shielded on both sides and to make it more confusing the different manufact...

Extruded Aluminum Fences, Design vs. Execution

07-07-2009 07:59 PM by easelman | 5 comments »

I am a retired machinist/mechanic and have always dabbled in woodworking, first as a hobby and now commercially. Over the years, my pet peeve with small, non-industrial woodworking equipment is that they sadly lack most forms of x,y,and z axis indexing commonly found on metal working equipment, most notably mills. Fine adjustments to table saw and router table fences, blades and bits were usually a seat-of-the-pants feel, no dialing in a few thousanths to get that last bit of accuracy. Yes...
