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...
I just can’t review stuff. I have NO point of reference. Pretty much everything I have is my first [insert tool type here]. It wouldn’t be fair. BUT … after: - MUCH messing with my Grizzly G0555X 14” bandsaw, - figuring out that the entire blade tensioning mechanism was faulty (new parts on the way) - finding out all I could about tuning a bandsaw, and thinking I had it set up pretty darned well I finally stopped by the woodworking store and picked up...
This is my first attempt at writing the blog. I’m testing how to present, the resolution of images, etc … I promise complete with photos and text illuminating. This is a Beta version! The construction of my Jig circular aims to make perfect cuts to facilitate the connection between the parts from cutting. The lower clamping system allows for maximum space on top. It will be used with larger radii. The pivot bracket can be rotated beyond the limits of the table, enabling grea...
This project is not technically finished so I will not post as a project..This part of the blog will deal with the cutting of arcs.I basically used one of the patron jigs I developed to cut the end curves for a Baguette Board…this pivots on the circle cutting jig. Cut two lengths of contrasting or complimentary timbers… I of course chose Purple Heart and Silver Ash…Silver Ash and Tasmanian Blackwood would have also been suitable… But if all you have is Walnut and Curl...
David Mitchell aka Patron first showed us his amazing starburst table ...a few months ago. David sent me a design…a rather simplified version.. This was his gift to me on Fathers day..This is my version of that design… It has taken me a while to get around to it. David I hope you like it!..Here a some blanks cut to size.. First I milled the stock to 5/16 and 2 inches wide… cross cut to just over 3 inches.I used Purple heart and European Walnut.. any complimentary or contras...
So I’ve been planning on building a decent mahogany tv stand for about a year now. I drew up numerous plans and picked out tons of wood from my old stockpile. I had the dimensions down so that it would fit my (much too large and heavy) old school tvas well as 3 peripherals right at the top. Also lots of storage below for whatever. Work became unbelievably busy last year, as well as my wife getting pregnant and my twinswere born 7 months ago. Wow. So needless to say I didn̵...
