Wood Library #1: Ebony

05-24-2008 03:23 PM by teenagewoodworker | 5 comments »

Ebony (Diospyros ebenum) Ebony is a really beautiful wood but is also very, very hard to work with. from my uses of Ebony i have found that it is a very brittle wood and chips very often. it is also very hard to shape using hand tools again because it chips so much. really i have found that the only way to shape it is to sand it and because it is so dark i have a hard time of finding in which direction the grain runs and all it does it chip. also when gluing up Ebony because of the oil con...

Flag and Certificate Display Case

05-24-2008 03:09 PM by John Nixon | 6 comments »

Just in time for Memorial day… I made a display case for my father-in-law that holds an American flag and certificate. The flag and certificate were presented to him by an active Navy Seal serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom. The certificate shows the date the flag was flown over Camp Patton in Fallujah. This was quite an honor for my father-in-law, and the flag and certificate deserved a special case to preserve and protect them. Here’s a link to the video on how the ca...

Dovetails on the Leigh D4R jig #2: Through dovetails

This episode shows in detail the procedures to make Through dovetails on the Leigh D4R jig. The steps are very simple: 1. Arrange the guide pin spacing2. Route the tails using a suitable dovetail router bit3. Route the pins using the matching straight router bit The variable pin spacing makes the D4R a very versatile dovetail jig, allowing an infinite arrangement of dovetail spacing. In addition, this capability also allows setting half pins near the edge of the boards, which I find ...

DIY Lathe #2: The better base!

05-24-2008 01:25 PM by Marcel T | 2 comments »

Hey guys! Taking advantage of the long weekend here in Canada, (so this was last weekend) I made a better base for my dremel. I was taking it apart to see why it was squeaking (trapped sawdust) when the idea hit me – drill the existing screw holes all the way through the body, and get a longer screw to hold the dremel together (like the old screws) and hold the dremel to the base. Well, I didn’t have a screw quite that long and thin, but I did have some short screws of the correct diameter. S...

Another update on the old health

05-24-2008 04:08 AM by gene | 13 comments »

I when to my Vascular surgeon today. He said that there were three options that he told me about, and which one did I wish to pursue? I will tell you the one that I chose, My answer to him was, which ever is the best to give me a chance to go back to work. I have not been able to work in over seven years. It is the first one that he gave me. we are going to try a medication for eight weeks. If that doesn’t work? well, the remaining options do not look that great. So I will not go into t...

Woodworking vacation #11: Final day - third, and final entry

05-24-2008 02:11 AM by Betsy | 5 comments »

Sorry for that second interruption. I’ve never been at a hotel with a timed system – but it is what it is. The bread board ends are designed with three tenons/mortises that are “haunched.” I kind of fizzled out when we got to this point so I did not get this accomplished. Just plane tuckered out. I’ll do this at home and take pictures to explain it as I’m sure pictures will do more to explain than anything I can write. One thing that was brought home ...
