Work(shop) in Progress #8: New Table Saw: Low Profile Riving Knife for Ridgid R4511

1927 days ago by PurpLev | 53 comments »

So among the few shotcuts that were made by providing the R4511 at the market price was the fact that it only came with a splitter+integrated blade guard but no additional low profile riving knives (for non through cuts). for the price this saw comes at – one can’t complain, and the fact is- it does have a riving knife mount system which is a good base to start with. solution: homemade riving knife made out of 1/8” plate of 6063 aluminum: EDIT: If I’d do this again,...

Just for fun - Horned Owl

1243 days ago by David Craig | 18 comments »

Recently, I read a blog by littlecope entitled Make Something!. Apparently Mike, on occasion, does something just for the spirit of it, just to have fun (whatever that is). It has been a hectic week and haven’t had much shop time, but I did find a few hours in the middle of the week in which I could do a little something. So I thought I might see what this “Fun” thing was all about. I have a vast collection of scraps, parts of branches of trees, broken furniture, basicall...

Layered epoxy inlay #1: The idea and the start

934 days ago by JoeyG | 15 comments »

Here I go again. I have had a idea for a while. It began with my first wood inlay. I wanted to do more. I wanted more colors, more this, more that. So I searched for idea’s and found people who did inlays on gourds. So I looked and read, and said, “Hey, I can do that in wood.” After doing a few of these I still wanted more. More color, etc.. So for Christmas I get this fancy new Dremel with all the attachments, and I say to myself “Now I can do more.” ...

Routed Sign Making #3: Wood removal with various routing bits

896 days ago by 3DBMe | 15 comments »

Now that the letters are outlined with a stop-cut we want to ‘rough out’ the material inside the letters. I use clamps to hold down the wood so that there is no movement while routing. The clamps are repositioned as necessary for a clear work space. 01 Clamp Wood ————————————————————————————————&#...

Routed Sign Making #1: Routed 'Sign Making Class'

953 days ago by 3DBMe | 13 comments »

We’re going to use a Dremel router to make a sign with recessed lettering. I suggest barnwood because of the contrast between the weathered surface texture and ‘fresh cut’ letters. I also have enhanced the letters by burning (pyrography) the edges of the letters for increased readability. Of course you can scale up to larger routers if you chose. Stock: Barnwood 2”x10”x24” Suggested material and dimensions Safety: Goggles, F...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1010: Something to Crow About!

464 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

No job should be this much fun. I know I have said it before, and that some of you may think that I am exaggerating, but I find if anything, I tone it down. This past week and a half should be proof of that. In the last week and a half, I drew up seven new candle trays as well as a new project for the August issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine and pretty much got all the prototypes finished. I still have one more tray that I didn’t even really show you yet, but I wil...

DIY Lathe #1: Introduction

2257 days ago by Marcel T | 9 comments »

Hello fellow Lumber Jocks! I’m starting a little blog series on my work-in-progress DIY lathe. In short, I want to build a lathe to turn a few pens, without spending ~$60 some on specifically pen turning materials and ~$200 on a lathe. So, I want to try turning. I’ve always considered myself a handyman-esque person, and I had that urge to build! The tipping point was when I found a few blogs such as AfriGadget, StreetUse and Future Perfect. Their owners travel a lot, and they notice ingenu...

A Parrot IS NOT an Eagle!

1891 days ago by robbinscabin | 9 comments »

As usual, LumberJocks has shown an interest for the photos that we really don’t want to share! So, I reluctantly post this first sad attempt of an Eagle here…NOT in my projects. I do agree with my hubby that Eagle #2 is much better! Oooh, I hate it when he’s right! ;~)

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #382: Meet Fiona - The Halloween Witch (Pretty Scary!)

1122 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I had such a good time yesterday finishing up my latest project. Each step and addition I made to it made it look a little better. Building stuff like this is so much fun and I really get a lot of satisfaction out of making these little replicas. The hardest thing for me to do was to be patient and let the glue dry for each step. I knew if I didn’t wait, I would have a mess on my hands. I forced myself to walk away after each piece or set of pieces was glued and try to get busy on ...
