Birth of a 4-axis CNC machine #2: Putting it together - a start, anyways.

672 days ago by DS | 10 comments »

Well, as promised, here are some more pics of the process. Before; First thing I had to do was tap the end screw holes for the corner brackets. I could have used these with the t-slot connectors and not had to tap anything, but I wanted the brackets to do double-duty as end caps too. I didn’t have an appropriate tap, so I used my dremel tool to cut a groove across the threads of a screw, being careful to leave a good cutting edge on the leading edge of the threads. With a l...

Birth of a 4-axis CNC machine #1: T-slot comes home

676 days ago by DS | 20 comments »

I’ve been planning a 4-axis machine in my head for more than a decade now. Every time I go to put it on paper, I get another idea and end up trashing all my notes. I have a pretty good idea what I want and the materials I can acquire on the cheap will dictate most of what ends up becoming my completed machine. I want to be able to do 3 axis machining on a small basis, but also a 4th rotary axis for doing and carving on turnings and 3-D objects. I’ve found a lot of good c...

Steam Bending #3: Steam Bending Trout Fishing Nets: Shaping and Finishing

683 days ago by Retsof | 2 comments »

It’s been a while since I posted my last update on this project and I’ve made a lot of progress. Once I got the basic shaping and sanding done, I had to stop until I found the net bags that I wanted to use on the frames. As of this week, I have everything I need to finish the nets, so here are some more photos to show you what I’ve done so far: Here is net #2 after bending, but before glue up. This photo gives a good look at how I pegged my circles to the melamine ba...

Evolution of my router planer #8: Tweakin' it again. Version 2.1

686 days ago by TZH | 8 comments »

Didn’t know whether to post here in this blog or in the walnut tv stand blog. So here it is. Found I had to tweak my router planer a bit more in order for it to work as well as I wanted it to work. The slabs I’m doing right now were too long for the regular planer, so had to get out the really long rails once again. Problem with the setup I had already used was the sled didn’t ride the rails as nice or as easy as I’d hoped they would, even with using some wheels/cas...

691 days ago by DustyMark | 5 comments »

I recently started a major chair-building project and thought it might be fun to document the process as a series of blog entries. So, here we go… My BackgroundI started woodworking in seventh-grade woodshop about 38 years ago. I began pursuing this wonderful hobby in earnest in 1986 and was fortunate to catch the wave of woodworking information put out by magazines such as Woodsmith, Fine Woodworking, and American Woodworker. I collected a significant personal library of books and...

Spoon Making: It’s Addictive

694 days ago by woodpezzer | 11 comments »

A while back my mother-in-law mentioned needing a few wooden spoons. She prefers wood utensils when making goodies like chicken & dumplings. The reason being, wooden spoons won’t tear the dumpling as much as metal or hard plastic. I made a couple spoons in early summer and didn’t care much for it but I decided to give it another try.. just for her cause she’s awesome. We had a family reunion coming up and she always makes a huge batch of dumplings so I knew she would want something with a...

The making of the flag project #1: How to ... flag

704 days ago by wofowood | 10 comments »

1. Beginning of the project… getting the 26 oak boards identical and laid out and glued up. 2. After a few hours of carving and shaping, with the star field cut (to scale of the overall dimensions). Still no glue-up at this time… Used my angle grinder with King Arthur and Arbortech wheels… 3. Used clear stain with dye added… took a few coats to get what I was wanting but it turned out well. 4. Glue up completed nothing left but the field of stars and a fin...
