Alexander DIY reamer - need help on how to sharpen

11-24-2010 06:29 AM by daltxguy | 9 comments »

I built the ‘Alexander saw steel tapered reamer’ based on the information found on Jennie Alexander’s green woodworking website. SawSteelTaperedReamerPlans I’m having some trouble understanding the instruction on how to sharpen the back edge of the saw blade, which works as a scraper to form the tapered hole. Here’s what mine looks like now – As you may be able to make it out, it’s just a square edge right now. Alexander says this abo...

Trestle Table Desks #1: Milling the leg parts and mortising

11-11-2010 12:40 AM by Lee Barker | 2 comments »

General outline: Two identical desks, 30×72, 6/4 cherry with a juniper accent somewhere. Progress shown here: The milled parts for the leg units. The verticals will be mortised into the feet and the opposite piece to the feet—what is that, the head? The shoulder? I think I like “shoulder” better. The juniper panels will be inset between the two verticals (femurs?). I’ve not yet decided how tall the panel will be, but the width is 5”. The feet ar...

And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.” .....Muhammad Ali, Heavyweight boxing champ…1942 - One of the benefits of creating “Wolf’s Tooth” wood inlay bandings is that you actually get two bandings for the effort of one. What do I mean by this? When the initial cuts from the laminated stock are made on the table saw using the dedicated miter saw we flip th...

Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work......Aristotle, Greek Philosopher (384 BC – 322 BC) The “Wolf’s Tooth” decorative wood inlay pattern is a wonderful custom inlay used to embellish furniture, picture frames, wooden boxes, and a host of other woodworking projects.

"Pet" projects #1: Small Iguana Cage

10-31-2010 09:20 PM by JPNpro | 1 comment »

The cage is made with integral mortise and tenons in hard maple. The upper section sits on a removable base in a rabbet cut in the table base. The base is made from black cherry with maple legs and a lower two piece shelf. The long term plan is to remove the cage top when the iguana outgrows it and make a nice table from the base unit. This is 2 in 1 design.

Live in the shop...Creating bandings for Wood Inlay

10-24-2010 07:44 PM by Bob Simmons | 9 comments »

Today we are creating bandings from scratch. We’ve got some ideas for the wood inlay designs so we are ripping on the table saw, sanding on the drum sander, and gluing. At some point we will cut banding segments on the dedicated miter saw and then gluing some more. Plus we will be doing a bit of video shoots for the next release. Feel free to stop by. visit…The Apprentice and The Journeyman ...........Learn more, Experience more!
