07-27-2010 02:59 AM by clieb91 | 5 comments »

Just a quick update in regards to my last post. When my fellow LumberJock suggested I submit this tip to a magazine, I figured why not. So I submitted it to one of my favorites…. Woodsmith. Low and behold I was contacted a few days later and if you look at this months issue (which I just got in the mail today) you will see my tip :) Thanks for the encouragement David. CtL

Ready to finish

07-27-2010 02:43 AM by jeffthewoodwacker | 5 comments »

Spent some time on the sugar maple mexican pot today. I reverse chucked the turning onto a vacuum chuck and turned the tenon off of the bottom. The piece was then sanded all the way through 320 grit and then removed from the vaccum chuck. I build my own vacuum chucks using PVC pipe and attaching closed cell foam to the end of the pipe. I turn a plug from Trex wood deck material, drill it and then use a threader to create threads to fit my lathe. The plug is glued into the heads...

I am in Fine Woodworking Magazine

07-27-2010 02:07 AM by Brian Havens | 10 comments »

In fact, one of the reasons I took on the Jewelry Armoi...

As a few of you may recall, I’ve been asking about V Drum sanders for a while now, convinced I could make one out of my Shopsmith with a minimum of effort. Picture One This is the tailstock with a mdf block in it. I ended up using a turned piece that projected out of the tailstock toward the about and inch. Picture Two Here is the flat bearing I am using with a 3/8” center. ...

07-26-2010 10:55 PM by BritBoxmaker | 78 comments »

Hello all. Well I seem to have whet the appetite a bit so here goes for a ‘novel’ technique for making mitred boxes. Its a bit like making a box out of paper, like they showed you at school, using a ‘net’. Only in 3D, with wood and a tablesaw (not sissors). Well first comes the board Its made from alternating strips of Maple and Rosewood of varying thickness. I won’t bore you with the details on how to make it suffice to say that all the corners must b...

The primary shop tools used for this wood project are the scroll saw, table saw, and the band saw. The hardwoods selected for this project came from a number of wood species that were in the scrap bin. Selected woods for this woodworking project include hickory, maple,...
