Circle Cutting Jig ( for the bandsaw) #1: The urge for greater accuracy

02-06-2011 08:32 PM by BritBoxmaker | 7 comments »

This is my second attempt at this blog after loosing the first two thirds last time, whilst blogging. Is there a size limit on blogs I wonder (Martin)? I digress. My first circle jig (Version 1.0) worked fine but lacked positioning accuracy. So on to version 2. The materials for this jig were pretty much what I had on hand. Chipboard (they throw away half sheets of 10mm stuff that comes in with deliveries where I work), Beech, 8mm threaded rod, nuts, washers etc. The idea for the jig is...

Jordan's Project #2: Step #2 Building the Box

02-03-2011 03:19 AM by Jeff Waggoner | 9 comments »

10. I cut the two sides for my case, taking care to cut one small side from opposite ends of each board, to make the grain line up around the box. I cut them with a sliding stop to ensure that all pieces were exactly the same.11. I then put it together with rubber bands to test the joints and see if the grains were matching. I rubbed mineral spirits on the corners to test it.12. I measured all of the joints from corner to corner. The box was dead square. 13. I cut two inches o...

Jordan's Project #1: Getting started.

02-01-2011 10:04 AM by Jeff Waggoner | 10 comments »

Getting My Wood. I started looking for a project soon after internationals last year. I started by browsing projects on fine woodworking and a small portable writing desk caught my eye. I showed my dad and we contacted the man that built it. He said that he didn’t have any plans for it because he had constructed it from a similar piece. From there we started researching variations. We found a site with over a hundred in many different forms. A tri-fold stood out to me because of its...

Being new to the “blogging” stuff here I go.

Days and days of mostly just staring at the dumb thing wondering why- oh why- things did not meet the way they should. Take a little off here- then a little off there- shoot!- think I took some off the wrong side. This was not the way to go.My micro-plane was going to be my salvation, but it may have created more problems than it fixed.Talk about creative clamping! Trying to get all the angles right and everything where it is supposed to be so that the screws in the base will end up in the ri...
