How to make Bandings for Wood Inlay #2: .

07-20-2010 11:03 PM by Bob Simmons | 6 comments »

Once the banding segments are organized we can now focus on creating the interior design. We’ll need a few outer rippings that will sandwich the segments together and keep them in alignment. You’ll notice in the picture that the outer hardwoods are walnut and maple glued together. In this case the walnut will be on the inside with the maple on the outside. The reason for this is to create contrasting colors within the banding and also with the mahogany picture frames that will...

How to make Bandings for Wood Inlay #1: 1

07-20-2010 01:50 AM by Bob Simmons | 6 comments »

Has there ever been a time when you saw a wood banding design inlaid into a table, jewelry box, or picture frame and you asked yourself the question “How did they create the banding?” I did too. Fortunately, about two years ago I came across a video on Woodtreks and it was there that I witnessed a craftsman form Orion Woodworks that explained the process of this particular banding design. The following is my interpretation. Pictured above is the look that I’m after. N...

What a trip.

07-18-2010 12:02 PM by Eagle1 | 6 comments »

What a trip. But it was well worth it. I got the bandsaw home. My cousin and I had a heck of a time getting the 420 Lbs. of Machine out of his truck. he has a rubber mat in the bed of the truck. We got it out then we had to slide it about half way into the garage so we could stand it up so I could close the garage door. It about wore us both out. I had a blast going down to get it. My cousin also took me by his lake place to see it. He thought that he had seen it. Over all a long but great da...

How's that for a deal?

07-17-2010 04:30 PM by ScottMorrison | 5 comments »

Greetings everyone, As some of you may know, my videos/templates are now carried by Woodcraft (woHoo!): What you may NOT know is that they have been significantly discounted from my original prices. So, of course, I lowered the prices on my website as well. Now everyone can save some bux and have a chance to build one of these pieces for themselves. In addition, if you visit the Woodcraft website here, all of the router bits (which are now made by Whiteside) needed for some of the ...

New new shop addition

07-17-2010 03:59 AM by DrJosh | 7 comments »

I recently posted a question about bandsaws in one of the forums and I received tons of great information and advice. The forthcoming and helpful nature of all the guys and gals on this site never ceases to amaze me. Anyway, I stumbled upon a store here in Nashville that I was completely unaware of…General Industrial Supply. I decided to stop in after work yesterday and boy am I glad I did. I picked up a 12” JET bandsaw from their “scratch & dent” area and I only f...

07-14-2010 11:36 PM by joey | 2 comments »

I got to go to the World Scroll Saw Expo last weekend in Wilmington Ohio, Which is my own back yard, since I only live thirteen miles from Wilmington. The Expo was cool to say the lease and really got me excited to play with my scroll saw agian. I only have a cheap saw but it does what I ask it to do, but if I ever really want to get into some of the kind of work that these folks do I might have to re-think that! There is three parts to my blog post the first post is just pictures from the sh...

The Splined Mitre Joint

07-08-2010 03:51 AM by Bob Simmons | 7 comments »

The Splined Mitre Joint is a decorative yet very strong joint. The addition of the spline and glue makes a regular mitre joint all the more stronger while aiding in keeping the mitre nice and tight. By using a contrasting wood the woodworker can achieve a very distinctive appearance at the joint. This woodworking video tutorial shows how the spline mitre joint is made using a woodworking jig on the tablesaw. For more information.visit…www.TheApprenticeandTheJourneyman.com.........

A dedicated Mitre Sled for the Tablesaw

07-04-2010 05:52 PM by Bob Simmons | 21 comments »

Has there ever been a time that you’ve struggled to cut a perfect mitre joint? Believe me, there’s no need to feel alone. All of us have had our challenges with the mitre joint at one time or another. So, let’s say that we want to build a woodworking project like a picture frame and we are looking to create four dead-on mitres joints. What’s going to be the woodworking tool of choice? We could use a chop saw or a mitre saw for our joinery. We could use a fine handsa...
