Antique End Grain Cutting Board

04-01-2011 05:50 PM by Roger Clark aka Rex | 15 comments »

As many of my fellow LJs must know, a huge amount of decorative cutting board projects have been posted here and they are mostly very decorative and one would hesitate you actually use the item as a cutting board in order to preserve the surface. Most likely they would not be used for cutting, but as a decorative item or a wall hanging like a not hit dart board. I did a lot of research into cutting boards and found original designs listed in a medieval parchment at the Smithsonian. These ...

Walnut and Oak Entrance Shelf #1: Basic construction

03-30-2011 10:39 PM by superstretch | 6 comments »

Its been a while since I’ve posted anything project-related. My time has been consumed with work-work and not wood work. So my wife has this table which she moved into the house when we got married. I can’t stand the thing and it is constantly being bumped, knocked over, and hit into the wall. Its ugly, veneered, and flimsy so I’ve tried everything short of burning it to get it out of there. Finally my wife told me to make something to replace it or get lost. My...

How I loaded huge walnut log

03-20-2011 11:56 PM by Built2Last | 9 comments »

Since I built my sawmill a year or so ago, I’ve had one major problem. Getting logs here to mill.I tried using my log arch but, with a 24” diameter log on it, there is no fun at all in pulling it on the highway with a big log, “just a swingin” behind you, held by a couple of straps, on a trailer with no springs. I’ve tried pulling them on the trailer and then pulling them off, but that way tearing up my trailer. My trailer is a 20 footer, abou...

Woodworking projects under way. #1: Resawing a dry 2x and watching it twist....

03-17-2011 08:20 PM by dbhost | 11 comments »

I am working on a project for another forum, and I have to resaw some 2x construction grade stock for that project. Mind you, I have no moisture meter, but the stuff has been in my garage/ shop now for 3 years, if it is ever going to be dry, now is the time… Anyway, so I get the stuff all set up, get the band saw set up, and the board i started working with was straight as a… well board when I started. Unfortunately when I finished, you could almost watch the thing curl up like a ...

Jigs and techniques #3: Bandsaw resaw fence

03-12-2011 05:16 AM by GregD | 6 comments »

As I was getting to the stage in my door project that required a lot of resawing, I started looking for information on how to do that. On the web and also in the classroom of my local Woodcraft store I saw tall shop-made fences used for resawing. So I decided to build one. I selected 3/4” melamine for the fence. The melamine faces provide a relatively hard, slick surface for the fence face, and the particle board substrate does not have a propensity to warp. Unfortuantely, the st...

Kreg Precision Fence on Rikon 14" Deluxe Bandsaw

03-11-2011 05:00 AM by GregD | 5 comments »

I thought someone might like to see how I attached a Kreg Precision Fence to my Rikon 14” Deluxe Bandsaw. The Kreg fence rail bolts to the infeed edge of the table. Unfortuantely, on the Rikon the slot for changing the blade comes out to the infeed edge of the table and is blocked by the Kreg fence rail. Rather than attach the rail directly to the table, I attached it to a length of 1-1/2” x 1/8” extruded aluminum angle. The extruded aluminum is then attached to the...
