Optimal Cutting with minimum scrap - iPad app

11-02-2011 12:31 PM by SmartCutter | 18 comments »

I recently finished working on a cutting algorithm app for the iPad and iPhone called Smart Cutter, and wanted to share the app with every one hoping get some feedback from carpenters and wood workers. Smart Cutter finds the maximum number of small pieces cut from a larger sheet of paper with minimum scrap. It employs a state of the art algorithm to generate the maximum number of small pieces cut from a larger sheet of paper, wood, cloth or any other material, with minimum waste. Whether y...

12-26-2012 05:34 PM by Grampa_Doodie | 6 comments »

This class will show you the steps that I took to build this really beautiful side chair designed by Mr. Kevin Rodel. Here’s a photo of just some of my chairs sitting around our kitchen table. I’ll be sharing several good things (and a few bad things) that evolved down in my shop while building ten of these gorgeous chairs. Hopefully you will walk away with a handful of tips that will make your chair building session a much more pleasant experience. I learned an unbelievabl...

Urban logging #1: A small victory in urban logging (part 1)

05-23-2008 02:13 PM by Daren Nelson | 19 comments »

I am an “Urban Logger”. I only mill trees from town. There is a reason for this. I am a tree hugger (yea really) Not the stereotype, insert your own mental picture here, that have given that title a negative connotation. BUT, I do love trees. I think they are magnificent. I know this sounds weird from a guy that runs a sawmill, you would think I just feel they are for me to chop down and mill and make money from. It’s not like that at all . I started sawmilling just to keep ...

CS1 End Grain Cutting Board

09-30-2010 02:49 AM by Scott Bryan | 14 comments »

Well I finally decided to join the cutting board club and this project completes my membership requirements. Now I am waiting for one of you charter members to send me the secret handshake. :) I needed to come up with something for my wife since her birthday is coming up this weekend. It basically boiled down to building her something or taking her shopping for clothes. To tell the honest truth I would much rather be spending time in the shop rather than sitting in a chair while she sp...

Make a Folding Out Feed Table for your Table Saw

02-20-2013 05:22 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 16 comments »

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...

Wood Gloat.... Maybe?? #1: Lumber Bought at Auction

11-16-2009 04:11 PM by Scott Bryan | 15 comments »

Over the weekend I went to an auction that had 600 bf of cherry, 400 bf of walnut and 400 bf of oak for sale. I wasn’t sure how I was going to get it all back into the shop or where I would even put it if I won the wood but I thought it would be great to work on getting a wood stash that would start to rival that of Karson and Larry. When the wood was auctioned needless to say I did not win any of it. The guy that bought most of it never put his card down and so the wood went for m...

I have been working on this project time permitting.

After fighting with a shelf that I messed up on and had to remake a new one. Talk about frustation, nothing went right with it and it took me a couple of weeks just to build one new shelf.Now this project has had many...

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!

Murphy Bed #1: Building a Murphy Bed from scratch

07-10-2013 10:57 PM by Jim Jakosh | 20 comments »

We need a Murphy bed next winter in Arizona and I did not want to buy the hardware. That takes all the fun out of designing it yourself and costs $360. So I looked at a lot of bed designs and settled on one that used HD pivots, gas springs for counterbalance and a swing out leg support rather than the fold down kind.The parameters were a twin mattress (7×39 x 75), had to flip long ways and enough room inside for making the bed. Then I had to decide on the pivot points, the foot pivot ce...
