Here’s how to make a Laminated block for my Turned S&P Mills, Ice Cream Scoop & wine bottle stopper 1= Cut lamination strips “Any Thickness you want, see diagram” by the width and length you need to make the size block you need for your project. Example 1/8”x2”x12” ,1/4”x2”x12” and so on!(It Does take some thought how you want to organize the laminates as the outer laminates will be glued together & the th...
I tried to post a diagram from Sketch up! as it turned out is was to small to read or see the diagram .Here’s what I did 1st I exported it from Sketch up in 2D to my pictures = Picasa then to PhotoBucket then from PhotoBucket to the LJs blog format page .I tried to enlarge it in my PhotoBucket but It wouldn’t let me to the size I needed.
It seems like the arched form needs to be lifted off the table by some amount. I’m not sure by how much. My technique in situations like this is choose from a range. Start with too little and keep adding until it seems like too much. Somehwere in between “too little” and “too much” there should be a “just right” or at least a “close enough”!In this case I start adding spacers underneath each end. Here is the range of heights. The wi...
Well, trimming up the sides removed the gaps I showed in the previous post. BUT the trimming exposed other gaps! Definitely needed to do a better job of clamping! Time to adapt. Time to go back to the shrinking scrap pile. As luck would have it, I had two strips of cherry from an even older project. If I remember right, these strips are from the first cherry boards I ever bought (19 years ago). Both strips are long enough and one of them has enough length to cover the ends as well. ...
Pete has been building my Bass guitar for the last 6 months with my madrone top. Just wanted to show if off. This is the newest pics. It still needs to be sanded down and polished but it is coming along great!
Using up some scraps here…..just made the basic boards today. Tomorrow I hope to work on the corners and edge treatments and juice grooves and then get them soaked with Mineral Oil : ) Thanks for looking ! Ooops ,sorry …... Where to add photos here ?
Further to my post on Parquet Floor Blocks, I knew I had to test my veneer cutting skills before (possibly) wasting this beauty..So last night I cleaned my Wood Slicer bandsaw blade with oven cleaner, and tonight I setup the bandsaw, adjusted for the blade drift as best I could (I have never before been completely successful), and ran a few floor blocks through the saw. Firstly, I was shocked that my drift settings were spot on (woo-hoo) and the block sliced like a dream.Secondly, I cut my...
Just found this nifty site, joined and wanted to say hello and to thank all of the welcomes… I am a neophyte woodworker, only been playing at it for about 30 years. Nothing major just piddling in the shop. Current shop consists of Delta 14” bandsaw, Rigid table saw, Rigid jointer, Delta planer, Rockler router table, Delta drill press, Delta dust system, Dewalt miter saw, and a Dewalt scroll saw along with assorted power and hand tools. Currently working on bandsawn boxes for...
I’m so close! The clamps are holding the oak backer board on … which is holding the mirror in place. The top oak trim cap is just sitting there. The bottom trim cap was a no-show on photo day. It looks suspiciously like the top piece. BUT … I’m almost done! The trim blocks (the four corner pieces that surround the frame) are glued on. I’m going to run the top and bottom edges through my jointer, along with the top and bottom cap pieces … just to ...
Now that I have my web site in order, I have had time to resume working on videos. Here is the link and the writeup:Band Saw Blade DriftAll too often band saw blade drift is a phenomenon that vexes woodworkers who are new to resawing on the band saw, more...
