Sleepydogs Blog #4: World Scroll Saw Expo Parts 1 and 2

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…

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...

Raised panels chest #1: Raised Panels Jewelry chest with inlays

07-02-2010 09:02 PM by lanwater | 7 comments »

This chest is a class project I did. The design is not mine; the instructor (Jim Vice) provided this design. It took many hours to build and covers many woodworking techniques. It is currently not quite finished yet. I still have to make walnut plugs and cover those screw holes, secure the top, chose some know (I am thinking brass) and of course apply a finish. We primarily used Ash throughout. The drawer dividers, back and bottom are plywood. I chose sapele for the drawer front inl...

Bandsaw Box #1: What the wife wants, the wife gets.

07-02-2010 10:41 AM by WoodenSoldier | 5 comments »

So I came home from work one day to find the February 2008 copy of Woodworker’s Journal out on the kitchen table with a post-it-note on it that said, “Make me one of these except with dolphins.” The article was about a bandsawn box with a ying-yang design. My wife saw that it was made with a bandsaw and wanted me to make it because she’s still mad at me for buying the band saw and not telling her until afterward. Now I announce to her every time I use it so that she...

Creating Bandings for Inlay #2: A Video of the process

07-01-2010 12:35 AM by Bob Simmons | 0 comments »

If you’re like me you’ve probably looked in various woodworking magazines over time and have read articles on applying wood inlay. Sometimes the inlay can be rather simple and yet it becomes a nice accent. Other times the inlay can be somewhat complex and it can really grab your attention. I suppose that’s why inlay has been around for thousands of years. For example, the Egyptians, Chinese, Persians, and other cultures used inlay millenniums ago to embellish their works ...

Wood Splurge! #1: The Ensplurgening

06-28-2010 04:03 AM by Wiley | 7 comments »

So, I recently won a car in a sweepstakes. I don’t drive, so at first I had a bit of trouble getting excited about the win. But then I realized: I hadn’t so much won a car as won a new computer, a bandsaw, a thickness sander, and a bunch of wood, plus a dramatic increase in my savings account. Well, last Friday the final paperwork on selling the car went through, and Saturday morning the splurge began. First stop was Woodcraft. I’d had my eye on the Rikon 14” Deluxe...

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #7: While visions of perfection dance in my head

06-28-2010 04:01 AM by sras | 11 comments »

I deal with correcting mistakes instead! It has been quite a while since my last post, but I AM still working on this project. In addition to regular life, we have had a week long vacation, business trips (including 2 weeks in China), a family illness and preparing for RAGBRAI . The shop time has been hard to come by. I figured this would be a good time to confess and share how I am dealing with this round of unexpected issues. Dull Bandsaw Blade I started to shape one side of the...
