Creating Wood Inlay Bandings...A Step by Step Process #3: A Banding with Checkers

01-09-2011 07:22 PM by Bob Simmons | 10 comments »

“Look at every path closely and deliberately, then ask ourselves this crucial question: Does this path have a heart? If it does, then the path is good. If it doesn’t then it is of no use to us.” Carlos Castaneda…Peruvian-born American anthropologist and author…(1925-1998) (This banding pattern will be referred to as Banding #2 for the sake of convenience.) Banding #2 with Checkers can easily be understood and made in the shop if we take a few minute...

Did you just buy a new bandsaw and it didn’t come with a fence? Did you spend all of your money and really don’t have it in your budget to purchase a fence system right now? Continue Reading...

Creating Wood Inlay Bandings...A Step by Step Process #1: A Study of Creating Wood Inlay Bandings...Banding #1

01-05-2011 06:49 PM by Bob Simmons | 0 comments »

“Action speaks louder than words but not nearly as often.”Mark Twain…American Author and Humorist…(1835-1910) We will refer to the banding in the illustration as “Banding #1” for the convenience of identity. For this example the dimensions for the inlay package are 4” x 10” x 3/8”. For this instance the length of the sliced banding would work well for a typical picture frame that houses a 5” x 7” picture. When making ...

DragonFly Harp #4: 1/4/2011 Completed Model

01-04-2011 07:05 PM by Donna Menke | 14 comments »

Here is a good example of just how difficult joinery is with foam. Lots of slop and instant gratification- not at all like wood. Wonder if one can play a foam harp- nah.The foam model has been assembled for the first time- with toothpicks, tape, and chewing gum (just kidding about the gum). I tried to glue some parts with Titebond, but it never dried and didn’t stick well. I’ve decided to return to the original plan to end the bottom of the pillar outside of the sound box. Hope it...

DragonFly Harp #3: Making the Pink Harp

01-04-2011 06:31 PM by Donna Menke | 3 comments »

Started the new year off right with many hours in the shop working on the harp project. I’ll try to keep track of my hours- a good guess would be about 10 hours to date.I don’t kid myself that working with this foam is anything like working with wood, but I need to get a prototype before I can even think about making working drawings.I spent a lot of time trying to get my styrofoam pieces to stay in the right plane before I got the brain storm to make some supportive blocks at the...

Setting Up My New Timberking 1220

01-01-2011 12:40 AM by HalDougherty | 6 comments »

I posted a project the other day about my wood gloat! My new Timberking 1220 came packaged in a crate made from 3 sheets of 1/4” plywood, a stack of 1X4’s, 2 1×6’s, and several 2×4’s. The day I posted the project, I parked my trailer under a big maple tree in my front yard so I could hoist the saw head over the base sections. The first day I only had time to get most of the wood off the crate and position the new sawmill so I could start pulling it into the a...

A Favorite Tool...The Wixey Digital Angle Gauge

12-28-2010 08:19 PM by Bob Simmons | 13 comments »

We often read reviews of tools at the time when the tool is just released. However, this review is of a tool I have steadily used over the last 2 years and it is quite simply a joy to use. The Wixey digital angle gauge has the ability to take the woodworker’s skills to the next level because it is easy to use along with being very accurate. No longer does the woodworker have to rely on the less than accurate gauges of a table saw or a miter saw to approximate the angles to be set. One c...

Rebuilding the Bear #2: Christmas Delay

12-26-2010 11:33 PM by Jon McGrath | 2 comments »

Quick update = Christmas and all that comes with it put a damper on shop activity this past week. With that comes all the storage bins, etc. laying around, under, etc the saw and shop – so will get some good present photos during the next week. I did however find a picture of what this saw looked like brand new in 1986 only to find it is not the same, motor on mine mounts low but to the rear of stationary stand, while photos I find always show motor mounted directly underneath the saw, ...

Building a stable for my Church’s Nativity from recycled poplar beams. The beams came from the Church’s restoration in 2007 ( FOR RIVER GIRL: This Nativity Stable is in a Church next door to the GRC Memoral.)
