end grain cutting board #2: planing and sanding for hours

10 days ago by bobasaurus | 5 comments »

Finished up the cutting board today. This old japanese plane has a wide mouth, so it works great for removing the glue squeeze-out stalactites. Used the low angle jack plane for leveling the pieces and flattening the board. This took quite a while, but worked great. Chamfering the edges prevented any blow-out of the end grain. I used a 1/8” roundover on the edges, then routed some handles in the sides with a 5/8” box core bit. After some careful stop block placement ...

end grain cutting board #1: A time-honored woodworking tradition

11 days ago by bobasaurus | 8 comments »

I need a bigger cutting board for my kitchen, so I decided to put my shop to work. The original sketchup model. I used logarithmic tapering widths for a bit of an illusion. Bought some soft maple and african mahogany off craigslist for cheap. Maybe not the most ideal woods for a board, but they should work fine for my home kitchen use. I crosscut the boards first to get them to workable size. After jointing, resawing, and planing the boards to square, I carefully ripped them into var...

Cutting board from builders' samples

172 days ago by sgmdwk | 4 comments »

When some friends from church learned I was a wood worker they brought me a box of samples they had left over from building their house. These were squares of finished wood, about 5 to 6 inches a side and around 3/8 inch thick. Some were stained, some painted; some were milled, some flat. There was alder, oak, birch, mahogany, walnut, hickory, cherry. “We were sure you could find something to do with them,” they said. It was an interesting pile. But what o do with it? I mad...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1241: Wonderful Gifts from a Dear Friend

193 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Today is going to be a very busy, but fun day! I worked yesterday on my new project and got much of the base things done on it and today is the “fun” part of letting my brushes fly and make it into something special. I hope to have things close to being ‘finished’ by the end of the day – at least to a certain point. Our ‘work day’ was cut a bit short yesterday because we went to Keith’s moms for an incredible lobster dinner. Keith’s s...

Woodworking For Therapy #10: Woodworking For Pain Relief

210 days ago by Steve Kreins | 14 comments »

I hope you all understand that I am not complaining about the pain associated with my liver cancer. The things I write are to ENCOURAGE OTHERS WITH DISABILITIES of all kinds. Let me share what happened this morning. In Part 9, I wrote about my experience with my first glue up and first end grain cutting board. I joked that maybe I’d just sit in my man cave all night and watch the glue dry. Well, I almost did. I went to bed about 9:00 PM. The chemo is making me need a lot of rest, ...

Woodworking For Therapy #9: This Can Be Nerve Racking!

211 days ago by Steve Kreins | 8 comments »

Well, my chemo is starting to kick me in places I didn’t know I had. I went two days without making any saw dust and that was worse than the side effects of the drugs. Yesterday I couldn’t stand it any longer so I went out to my cave and used my router table for the first time. I made a coat rack for inside the back door where coats usually end up on the sofa. It seemed like a good excuse to do some woodworking to me, even if my wife was yelling at me for not being in bed. It didn...

Tumbling block cutting board techniques, lessons learned and tips for cutting and assembly

219 days ago by jfk4032 | 8 comments »

After looking through some other blogs here on LJ and watching some Youtube videos I thought that the tumbling block cutting board was something that looked challenging, cool and something I wanted to try. I learned some good ideas from these other blogs and wanted to share some of my experiences having now made three of these, my setbacks and discoveries to better produce these tumbling block patterns. I purchased a Wixey digital angle gauge as it looked like you really needed to be accu...

Selling Serving Boards at Juried Show

226 days ago by prospector45 | 8 comments »

What a journey of four weeks from early Nov to first weekend of Dec. My bride and I had just left one of my retailers without a check. Sad Day. Now we had to determine what is the best way to sell the serving/cutting boards and bookmarks. Sondra, my bride, on the travel home was searching on the phone for shows in December. There were two the first weekend of December. One in Wooster, about 5 years continuity; one in Akron, 35 years of continuity with over 100+ vendors, two booths remain...

Reclaimed Glory #13: From cabinetry cut-offs to Simple box and Cutting board (in progress)

309 days ago by palaswood | 2 comments »

I have a bunch of cut-offs from a local cabinet shop that deals mainly with Cherry but I also get a good amount of Poplar from there. From the medium sized pieces (all 3/4”), I selected some nice poplar front and back, some cherry for the sides and I had one long board of Cherry that had a knot in the middle (so was discarded), and I simply cut the knot out and used each end for the top and bottom. It’s 9×4 x 3” high. I just set them up, and eyeballed it ...

In the shop #1: Back to work - Simple Cutting board

332 days ago by WayneC | 22 comments »

I’ve been out of the shop for quite a while for a variety of reasons. Recently, I’ve been cleaning, organizing and reworking storage for my tools. Also, I have been doing some restoration work in the Kitchen. Rebuilding cabinets, refinishing and rebuilding doors. One of the chores that needs to be done is to replace the pull-out cutting board. This is the old one. It fits into this slot in the counter. The only real design changes I am planning is to make the ...
