With all these new power tools, why do we still measure in the dark ages?

1602 days ago by technicallymark | 51 comments »

Quick, which is bigger, 5/16th or 11/32nd? Having trouble? Try this. Which one is bigger 10 or 12? Easy right? I’m all about easy and trying to remember how to convert fractions isn’t really something I want my brain working on with spinning sharp blades around. I’m not sure why we can’t be like the rest of the world and use “metric” for measuring, but it would make life a little easier in the shop. I might be a little biased since I have formal e...

How to find and harvest legal burls!

1779 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....

"Art Box" Tutorial #12: Shaping

1842 days ago by Andy | 28 comments »

Updated 1/16/12 This is the fun part! Its scary too! The idea of taking a nice crisp box, one you have spent countless hours making, and attacking it with a tool designed for slag removal is…well…its a little disturbing. Maybe I was influenced by old Hitchcock movies more than I know. Seriously, what I enjoy is the freedom this gives me. Everything up to this point has been tied to measurements and careful setups. This is where we can cut loose a little. But slow down Hot...

"Art Box" Tutorial #4: Corner Splines

1891 days ago by Andy | 26 comments »

Updated 1/15/12 We now have our box assembled and glued up. Depending on the temperature, let it dry for a couple of hours, or overnight to be safe.Take the tape off and clean up any dried glue. This is a good time to smooth up the bottom to get rid of any rocking.You can double stick sandpaper onto a very flat and firm surface and slide the bottom across that. The problem with this approach is that sheet sandpaper is way too small. You can stick down several sheets and if you go very s...

"Art Box" Tutorial #3: Making the box

1892 days ago by Andy | 25 comments »

Part 3updated 1/15/12 Regarding size:Size and proportions are important…to a point. We will be building a box that will start out at 11 1/8 W x 7 D x 4 1/2 H. (After shaping it will finish out at about 10 3/4’’ x 6 3/4’’ x 3 1/8 h depending on how much shaping is done.) I like the proportions of this box, they just look good to my eye. They are loosely based on the Golden Ratio which is a ratio of 1.618. There is much more to it than that, but simply put, here is how it works in rela...

453 days ago by littlecope | 23 comments »

A couple of months ago in J.f.F. #71, after a bunch of milling, I came up with some book-matched Bubinga that I said simply must be made into a box… After a trip to New Mexico, to visit with the Patron,and after Debbie and I re-doing our living room,and several trips to the Beach,and a hundred other things I can’t even recall,this Week, work finally began. Oops, Sorry! I kinda lost track!Oh yeah… Bubinga… Box…Actually, all the time that I was doing those th...
