CUTTING CORK QUESTION?

09-13-2010 07:36 AM by John Gray | 10 comments »

I’m making turned wooden coasters for Christmas presents and having a real problem cutting sheet cork for the inside bottoms. Hobby Lobby sells 3 1/2” pre-cut cork disks but I need smaller ones like 3”. I’ve tried cutting with scissors and with a new X-Acto blades and they seem to always tear before I get a circle cut completely. You can buy smaller cork cutting punches but not in 3” size that I can find. Any ideas? HELP!

The Woodshop - A Creative Maelstrom

09-13-2010 06:36 AM by wichle | 4 comments »

I posted a look at my shop tonight and found as I sorted out pictures to find 6 appropriate views that my shop has changed over the past few months. I added dust collection to my miter saw. I moved my router table from one wall to another. I moved tools stored on the walls from one spot to another. I put some tools here to fore in the tool box on the wall. Looking at the pictures gave me some more ideas to “streamline” my small basement shop. When I check in nightly to read posted LJ...

sawdust chronicles challenge #3: a little clearer now?

Here’s the pedestal attached to the base. Should make things a little clearer. The pedestal and top will be attached by a thick dowel running through the pedestal from the base to the top. As usual, comments are welcomed.

Timber Shows... #10: Why I go to Timber Shows.......!!

09-12-2010 11:05 AM by degoose | 6 comments »

If you thought … to sell Torque Workcentres, network, meet girls, drink beer and have fun you would be correct but…. One of the main reasons to go to a wood show is to learn more about woodworking…The Canberra Timber and Working with Wood Show was no exception… there were a few things I picked up from chatting with various folks at the woodshow…. The one I want to discuss in this post is about the Router Table…and what you can do to make using one jus...

sawdust chronicles challenge #1: need a little advice

09-11-2010 03:21 PM by BigTiny | 7 comments »

Greetings all. Well, the plans are coming along, but I’ve hit a bit of a roadblock. To make the Rubik’s cube pedestal I will need six different colors, and they must be different enough to stand out against each other. This could be hard to do if I stick with natural wood, so I’ve been thinking of going with a single species with a light color such as white oak or maple, then dye it. I want the grain to be obvious, so something transparent is in order, plus, to keep wi...
