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...
Next step is to make the ends of the segments curved. Shell-like if you want.For that we need a new jig.. Yeah I know some of you haven’t finished the first one..!This is ultra simple.Firstly a fresh piece of ply .. 1/4 ” is fine.I inserted a bearing to make this more durable .. same same as last one.This was positioned 4.5 ” from the end[centred on the width] and an arc cut on the end via the circle cutting jig.. same same.Cut two fences same as the one of the first jig ...
This Week I show you how to make a folding out feed table for your table saw. This design was based after an article and plan found in a 2009 issue of Woodworker’s Journal Magazine. Originally the plan was designed for a Cabinet saw with a Biesemeyer Fence System, so I had to make some slight modifications for my Porter Cable Saw. In this 3 part video series I show you a step by step on building this project as well as talk about the modifications I had to make. The Article and plans ca...
NOTE: I have just edited this blog to make some corrections in the original text! I have begun building my last (?) Easy Shop Table. Based on a similar design used in my Assembly Table from Wood Magazine (March 2010). Once again, this table (like my others) is built from standard grade construction lumber, redimensioned for the project (from the big box store). So far, I’ve purchased 2 2×10”s x 10’ for the frame of the project. The lumber cost for the frame assem...
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 one Project Video I get asked the most to make is how to build a crosscut sled for the Tablesaw. Well there are a lot of videos out there on making a Cross cut sled, so this is my take on it. I hope you can take something from this video and use it in your shop
Early on, a woodworker is forced to decide upon a sharpening system or product. And I know we have some folks on Ljs who are just entering the wonderful world of hand tools. This is my attempt to not leave those people hangin when it comes to sharpening. Clearly, planes and chisels are just handsome paperweights if they’re not sharp.Let me start by saying that I am far from an expert. Shoot I’ve only been using and sharpening hand tools effectively for about a year. I spent the pr...
I have spent the last few days in the workshop working out how to make this jig.. and have it durable and repeatable and totally accurate and easy to use.Actually this jig can be used for two different projects … well probably more that two but thats all I have used it for so far.To start, I had to build a table to go over the bandsaw table for the jig to pivot on. [double pivot actually][two pivots two pics right!! ]The table was made from 5/8” [15mm] plywood, with silver ash us...
Welcome back and again sorry for taking so long to get this post out. After my hand healed I was really backed up on some other projects. I’m almost caught up and will post some of those projects on my page in the next couple of days. When we left off we had all the sanding done and are ready for staining and finishing. I’m making two of these frogs, one that will need staining and one out of exotic wood so everyone can participate in this project. We will go over staining next. I’m...
