SPIRAL DESIGN #2: The construction...Selection of wood

08-31-2010 03:45 PM by BertFlores58 | 9 comments »

It took me a different trial of wood samples. Since the plan is to have it done in endgrain, I have to select the wood that will not break at thickness of 7 mm or nearly 3/16 inch. I used my own strength for testing it. I have found several strong wood mostly 2/3. Cut them into desired pieces and looks like this. Another difficulty is select proper combinations of color depending on the design. I need some contrast to emphasize the design. I have to test the pieces by spraying wa...

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #6: Quick drawer question for the more experienced!

08-29-2010 03:07 AM by RonPeters | 3 comments »

Ok, so I’ve changed the design of the drawers a bit on my bench cabinet. I decided that instead of sliding on wood rails – per the plan – that it would be much better to use side mount ball bearing sliders. The plan calls for 19-3/4” deep (carcass is 20” deep) but they don’t make 19” sliders. I got 18”s. The width of the drawer is 23” (I know, I’ve read that they shouldn’t be wider than the slider, oh well…) Depth o...

Raising a child! Kids with too much free time!

08-26-2010 05:41 PM by OregonBurls | 18 comments »

I have discovered that the more free time and stuff you give a child the more disrespectful and ungrateful they become. Free time is a privilege from now on. training them in work, good hard work they are more respectful, nicer and grateful and happier.

And when they have down time the do wood projects in the shop. No...

Performax 16/32 Drum Sander

08-23-2010 09:45 PM by WoodArtbyJR | 9 comments »

Well, my show went very well this weekend so I am looking for a drum sand so I can improve the quality of my cutting boards and produce some end grain boards. I just found one on craigslist for $395 and now I need some advice. The manufacture date on the motor is ‘96 and the color of the unit is green. I am not sure when they switched to white. Other then listening/checking for bad bearings and looking at the overall condition, what else should I be looking at or for. This unit als...

Design story: The Decanter from Landor Associates

08-21-2010 05:50 AM by RonPeters | 5 comments »

I recently found this design video. The music is a bit dated. I thought folks here would appreciate a hands on design method. Notice the French curves and dividers…no autocad here! Follow the process of designing a bottle decanter from start to finish. Design story: The Decanter from Landor Associates on Vimeo.

Mounting Live Edge Turning

08-14-2010 07:39 PM by scrappy | 11 comments »

Just thought I would post a little blog on how I mount a Live Edge Turning in order to finish off the bottom of the piece. When starting your tun, you can use a turning plate or chuck to hold the bottom and turn the outside and inside. But when you want to finish off the piece, that live edge doesn’t give you anywhere to grip. I saw one of these mounts in the WoodTurnersCatalog.com Mine is a LOT cheesier design, but only cost penny’s to make. Started with a scrap of wood, a ...

Heating Tung/Teak oil

08-09-2010 06:51 AM by ocwoodworker | 14 comments »

My local guru who I go to for advise, said to heat the tung oil to about 140 degrees and then apply it to my walnut table. Has anyone else done this? And if so what do you apply it with? A foam brush?
