DANGER! Chinese Plywood

2292 days ago by Tom Adamski | 46 comments »

Yes it’s cheap, and most of the time it will warp as soon as it is removed from the stack, but it can also be dangerous. Acording to an employee at Owl Hardwood in Lombard, IL, there is an instance where metal was found between the plys. The consumer that bought it found what appeared to be a utility knife blade while he was ripping the sheet on a table saw and in doing so, destroyed his blade. No coments if the person was injured, but I would not want to be around when pieces of ca...

Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #6: Cutting Sharp (Acute) Outside Corners

1073 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 38 comments »

By now most of you should have a bit of a feel for cutting some nice outside curves on the scroll saw. As we know however, most designs also consist of some nice sharp angles. Making accurate corners can be a bit of a challenge when you are new to scroll sawing, but with a few quick tips and a little bit of practice, you will find it is not as difficult as you may have imagined. Before long you will be scrolling those angles with little effort or thought. In order for me to show you ...

How to find and harvest legal burls!

1734 days ago by OregonBurls | 37 comments »

Hey everyone, It was suggested that I start a discussion on how to find and harvest burls. Please give your input also. I don’t deal with straight grain that often. I cut and sell burls for a living so here is what I know. It is illegal to harvest a burl without permission. of course if it is on your own property you can give yourself permission. What I do is put an ad on Craig’s list saying I want your burls. Most people don’t know what burls are. So you don’t get that many calls....

Intarsia Basics #1: Introduction and Invitation to All.

847 days ago by KoryK | 36 comments »

Hello to all and all are Welcome, Intro: Hi, my name is Kory Kiker and a couple of weeks ago Ms. Debbie contacted me about conducting an online class for those interested in learning the art of intarsia. I was very excited about the chance to share a few things I have learned in the last three years of doing intarsia art. Before intarsia I did a lot of wood carving so I hope this helps give each project more depth and definition. I will tell you now that most of the things I’ve lear...

Sharpening Table Saw blades by hand and cutting nails

1302 days ago by TopamaxSurvivor | 30 comments »

I decided to sharpen the firewood/ pallet blade today. It was cutting pretty slow. Thank goodness it is a combination blade without too many teeth. While I was filing, the first time I have tried this by the way :-)), I thought I should have put the blade on backwards and jointed it with a file. Has anyone ever done this? 20 minutes after fininshing the filing, I hit a nail!! Murphy’s law, I thought about that before I filed, but it did cut very well and I could defiinitely tell ...

Tip of the day! Use a push stick!

542 days ago by OregonBurls | 30 comments »

THE ART OF NOT TAKING A TRIP TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM!Yesterday I awoke out of my daze of admiring a quilted maple block with a shocking sensation and blood everywhere. The dull blade on my bandsaw did not help and using my hands to push the beautiful block through didn’t help either. Simple word of advise which many of you can attest too. Keep your tools sharp and use a push stick! Lets say it all together now! Keep your tools sharp and use a push stick!Keep your tools sharp and ...

Techniques & Methods #1: Scary Sharp Method

2217 days ago by PurpLev | 28 comments »

so just like every other woodworker at one point (what’s up with the other every other woodworkers is beyond me…) I was researching and learning about ways to sharpen my chisels, planes, and other blade tools in the shop. Since I am the weekend warrior at this point, and I do not need to resharpen my tools THAT often, nor THAT much, I figure that I can do without any expensive powertools (there are several of those on the market) to sharpen blades and I dont really have the spa...

“The Window Method” Parquetry is a geometrical form of Marquetry.

1128 days ago by Dennis Zongker | 28 comments »

This Parquetry panel is an insert for a conference table. This is the companies logo, It’s an abstract design of an Eagle. The panel size is 24” wide x 54” long. This was a very fun project, it took me around 32 hours to draw, cut, glue, and stain and finish. I used the “The Window Method” because of the long straight lines and the geometrical shapes. It’s much more accurate this way. If I was to used a scroll saw it would be very hard to keep the lines straight. 1...
