The Impossible #3: MI-2

06-12-2010 05:29 PM by BritBoxmaker | 29 comments »

Hello back again. I really don’t like glue-ups with pieces that have angles other than 90°. Strange really considering I make boxes with mitred joints. No matter, first question. Who can spot something missing from this picture This is how I found the workbench this morning. I could have sworn (and I do, a lot) that I had cut five 30mm pieces of Sycamore and theres only four there. In devon we have a special brand of pixie, called the f**kup pixie. They had obviously been in, ove...

"Don't Stress" glue ups

06-04-2010 02:55 AM by dustbunny | 21 comments »

I got so tired of fighting with glueing up cutting boards.Is everything lining up ? Is there slipping ? One clamp at a time !!So I spotted these flooring jacks in the HF catalog...and I began to wonder.I bet that I could use these to clamp cutting boards together in hopefully one shot.I haven’t tried it yet, but I will let everyone know if there are problems.I am thinking this is going to work just fine.I may need to add regular clamps at the corners, we’ll see. I did h...

Weave pattern LL Dip and Chip #2: Cutting and Gluing up the weave.

06-03-2010 12:13 PM by degoose | 29 comments »

Here is the cutting and dry fit of the weave pattern…I sanded the lengths on the Jet 16/32 drum sander and cut the individual piece to length using an Incra Mirtre Express..You can see the Magswitch Magnets I am using as stop blocks… one long and one short…The pieces are kept in order they are cut so that the grain orientation is maintained… this makes the illusion…Enjoy the slide show of the actual glue up…Martyn… start to finish for the glue up̷...

Snakes Pattern in Solid Wood #4: The Union of the Snake

06-02-2010 05:51 PM by BritBoxmaker | 16 comments »

Well part of it anyway. A new set of eight clamping sticks, waxed this time and polished. Major squeeky bum (ass) time. Glue in a dish. Brush at the ready. Quick slurp of tea and there off…...........Pick up the piece, slap on the glue, position it in the frame. Repeat until you’re sure you’ve done something wrong. Put it right. Continue…...... After 20 minutes—->The glue was probably OK for another two rows but I bottled it (chickened out). Wasn’t used to ...

Cheap Tricks #1: Glue Spreaders

05-31-2010 07:29 PM by clieb91 | 13 comments »

So I know everyone out there has some of their own money saving tips and tricks. I thought I would try to share a few of the ones I use. This idea came to me today while wandering around one of my favorite stores, trying to find items to put in my discount shopping bag. I saw a package of plastic glue spreaders for sale for $3.50 (per 6), I have read of guys using old credit cards and such and I have a few of them in my box but the items I found that seems to work well serves two purposes ...

006: pallet wood cutting board #2: cuts and glue-ups

03-30-2010 11:02 AM by Gary Fixler | 3 comments »

I’ve renamed my 5 preexisting project series from “project: whatever” to “00n: whatever” where n is the number of the set of posts in order. E.g. instead of “project: a rolling base for my planer,” that was the second project series I made, so now it’s “002: a rolling base for my planer.” The projects were starting to scatter in my series list, and I’d have a few series listed at the top in the drop-down for new posts, then an ...

006: pallet wood cutting board #1: visualizing a cutting board in SketchUp

03-29-2010 01:03 PM by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

I got some good suggestions in my last post about what to do with this block that I glued up from mostly reclaimed red oak pallet wood: One of the ideas I liked best was an end grain cutting board. I realized I had pics of each side of the block, so I made a block in SketchUp of the same dimensions, then slapped on textures from those pictures. It looked like this: Now I could cut that up by drawing lines at the locations where I wanted the cuts, then using the push/pull tool t...

Here it is unclamped. It is amazingly within a 1/32 inch roundness. Good enough.

found wood #16: Cora's Mexican restaurant wood

03-28-2010 07:22 AM by Gary Fixler | 17 comments »

Cora’s, a local Mexican restaurant went out of business recently. On my way back from the bearing shop with the new bits for my planer this past week I noticed a crew tearing the insides out. I stopped in and asked if I could look through their scrap pile for free wood, and as happens pretty much always here in west LA, they looked at me, shrugged their shoulders, and said “sure.” There’s wasn’t much, and nothing great, but the wood looked old, and I t...

Extremely Average #58: A Measure of Time

03-01-2010 04:30 AM by Ecocandle | 8 comments »

The outpouring of ideas from everyone has been incredibly helpful. I have been struggling with how I should get the router table to be flat, or at the very least to f sharp. So I sat at the piano and tickled the ivories. Many of you might be astonished to find that I play the piano; well you need not be, as I really don’t. When I turned 38, and realized it had been 20 years since I had graduated high school, it seemed that it was just about time to get my midlife crisis underway. I...
