Balancing Wine Bottle Holder-Sketchup

225 days ago by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

During this Sketchup show I go through a balancing wine bottle holder. This has my most recent measurements that I use and also a link for my actual “How to make a wine bottle holder” video. That video was my first ever on YouTube. Check out the Sketchup video HERE.

Cleaning up a Stanley 60 1/2 Block Plane

479 days ago by Matt Nudi | 4 comments »

Well, got my first hand plane in the mail, the stanley 60 1/2 plane. It wasn’t in too bad of a shape, but definitely needed some work…. So, first step was to take it apart. Had to get out a couple punches and made one mistake which I’ll explain later… The smallest stainless steel parts weren’t in too bad of shape, pretty good actually, so all that they need was a soak and some hand scrubbing. They were put in a tub of simple green and I let them sit...

Spline Cutting Jig

841 days ago by Karson | 18 comments »

I have seen a few spline cutting jigs here on LumberJocks. I was trying to think how I would use such a jig. I ran across some Freud blades for a skill type saw that are 7 1/4 wide and 1/16” thick. They were made for the battery skill saws where you don’t have a lot of power. So I decided to put that blade on my table saw. I measured the max cutting height with that blade and it’s 1 5/8” so I knew that if I used 3/4” ply for the base and depending how I ...

Segmented Fail (?) -- 20% rant, 80% cry for help

877 days ago by dspahn | 14 comments »

So after watching some videos on segmented bowl construction and turning, I decided to give it a shot while I wait for my cole jaws to arrive in the mail. I actually went to a lumber place and bought a few pieces: some walnut, alder, cherry, and something with the word “african” in it… maybe mahogany, but I’m not 100% sure. And then, after I got home, whinging internally about spending $40 on an amount of wood you could maybe build a desk for a barbie doll out of, ...

"Fold up" ironing board (reverse engineering) #2: Building a functional mock up

1324 days ago by jeff_wenz | 0 comments »

So I know I need to work out the sliding mechanism. 3 goals here: 1. Make sure the components fit into the space I’m allocating for it.2. Ensure all the pieces work and it is easy to slide up and down.3. Make sure the ironing board is level in the down position. Here are all the components (minus the door which I will build as part of the Murphy bed complex). I built a wall (16” stud mockup) and starting assembling the pieces I had cut from my measurements in post #1...

Sketchup Shorts #6: Compound Angle Cuts

1495 days ago by PurpLev | 7 comments »

I just posted this as a comment/response on another thread but figured this might be something that others could find useful. so here goes. This short tutorial shows one way to create a compound angle cut on an edge of a 2×4. this can translate to any other situation where a compound angle is needed: I started with a 2×4, used the protractor tool, and made a guideline from one corner at a 10 degree angle: I then selected the opposite EDGE of the ‘board’ and usi...

The Slippery Slope #2: The arrival, and so much more.

2348 days ago by Douglas Bordner | 31 comments »

Well it’s a red letter day here in Nebraska. My Sargent 410 showed up in the mail, and it’s rusty, finished is cracked, but it’s functional and will be ready for it’s bath soon. But this blog is about to be hijacked by an event of more personal significance, albeit a galootish event as well. Long story short, I have done a little side work on some photos for Thomas Angle, who is working up a web page for Owyhee Design, the woodworking arm of his two businesses (The ...

New toys from Woodworkers Expo in San Mateo

2349 days ago by Nils | 4 comments »

On Saturday I went to the Woodworkers Expo in San Mateo, California. I dragged along a friend who’s done some woodworking (he’s taking a class at the Palo Alto Adult Ed, which apparently has an awesome shop) but who didn’t want to buy anything. I made up for this by spending my entire budget. I had a list of things I “needed” – and I kept pretty close to the list, although my dollar didn’t stretch as far as I’d hoped it would. Anyway, here’...

Project - Chunky Boxes #2: Tuning Tools

2365 days ago by Dekker | 0 comments »

Well, over the weekend, I was only able to do limited work on my boxes. You see, I discovered the reason for my “clamping issues” on my lever-action boxes… My miter saw is out of adjustment! My 45’ angles were NOT 45’! So I took a 2×4, jointed it then planed it, then spent the next hour chopping the h311 out of it, adjusting the blade after every chop, until it was giving me perfectly accurate 45’ angles. I also adjusted it for 90’ angles. ...
