Ribbons in Cutting Boards

4 days ago by prospector45 | 8 comments »

Several years ago I saw this ribbon design at segmenting.biz/inlayexample. I started by selecting the body of the design. In this case, padauk, yellow heart, aand hickory for three boards. Then I laminated the “ribbons” Then I cut 2” holes in the boards that make up the body of the design. The problem for a flat boarder(cutting board) was how to create the plugs without a center hole. The first idea was wood turning but this would require a massive square of exotic wood...

Hand Tool Journey #10: First Hand-Cut Dovetails

1692 days ago by Blake | 14 comments »

I finally got a chance to practice hand-cutting dovetails. This is the first time I’ve made a cut with my new Japanese dovetail saw and use my new bench too. I started out with a couple scrap pieces of pine: I drew the tails: First cut… didn’t follow the line so well. It will take some getting used to. Here are all the cuts. Some are pretty good and some are pretty far off the line. This photo is AWESOME. Because as you can see, I did a beautif...

MDB #1: Milling S3S ...yes, triangles.

1460 days ago by PurpLev | 13 comments »

Disclaimer: This blog follows my Magen David Board that is already finished and posted here In Highschool I always doodled (I still am). and one of my favorite things was to use the squares on the math papers to form different geometries – mostly with triangles. as I was playing along, I discovered that I could form a star of david (Magen David) and that formation has stuck with me ever since. When I was introduced to the idea of making cutting boards out of wood, I always wanted ...

Beads Box #1: Carcass Design (which saw to use to cut the box?)

1980 days ago by PurpLev | 6 comments »

My mom is doing some amazing bead work. one time when I went with her to the beads store, I saw a small box/cabinet that the store used to store (no pun intended) the beads in, and thought it would make for a great way for my my to have all her beads organized – and I can make it. After completing my handtool box (at least the general construction of if) it made me think that I can scale it down and use the same ‘general design idea’ for the beads box. plus some additions...

Video: How To Hand Cut Precision Dovetails: The Pins

2116 days ago by Keith Cruickshank | 4 comments »

Many of you probably cut dovetails with power tools & jigs —and so do I. But for some projects, I really prefer cutting them by hand and I never tire of learning how to do it better. That’s what took me on one of my recent video “treks” (journeys), where I filmed the segment I’ve posted here — this time to the shop of master cabinetmaker Craig Vandall Stevens. In this two-part series, Craig (who studied under James Krenov) uses only a saw, chisel, and several sh...

MDB #2: Shave and a Cut - Cross Cut that is

1460 days ago by PurpLev | 5 comments »

Disclaimer: This blog follows my Magen David Board that is already finished and posted here At this point (see previous post for the methodology I chose to take for this project) , I realized that my plan for mass production, and gluing the long strips to one another to make the geometry would cause more trouble, and decided to cross cut them all to their final thickness instead, and in a way changed my work order to a ‘one of’ setup, albeit it would have been better if I did t...

Half Lap Joint

552 days ago by bigchopperoo | 3 comments »

I’m going to do a half lap with a cross cut, chisel paring, and followed through with a shoulder plane. Now if you didn’t know better, you might be thinking I’m an Olympic diver getting ready to execute a stunning high dive. But alas, I am not. I’m a woodworker, and this is a structural joint and the tools I will use to make a simple, yet strong woodworking joint. The Half Lap is a joint used to connect two intersecting pieces of wood. Each piece of wood is sawn to half its thickness. Whe...

Frame Saw Build #4: Stainless Steel Blade Clips

1006 days ago by PurpLev | 12 comments »

It’s snowing here so Its out of the unheated shop and staying indoors – good time to make the blade clips. I chose to use stainless steel because I waned a material that won’t rust, be strong and capable of sustaining the blade tension, and I like the color (not a big fan of brass although I do like it as an accent in some cases). I ordered some 1/2” stainless steel rods from Speedymetals a while back for no real reason when I ordered some other material as it was o...
