Making a Violin #3: Sides, or 'Ribs' ~ Bending & Gluing

11-12-2010 01:24 AM by RonPeters | 7 comments »

Ok, I’m back… Had a bit of an issue with the bending iron. It seems it is rather delicate and putting it on high (10) is a no no. It’s a Watlow ‘Firerod’ embedded in the aluminum tower. The current flow at 10 apparently burns out the element? It requires about an hour to get to bending temperature – and had I read the sheet that it came with… It was repaired free of charge and henceforth I will be careful to mind the dial! Nothing past 5 from no...

SPOON, SCOOP, COFFEE or otherwise CLUB/Challenge

11-11-2010 03:46 PM by rivergirl | 50 comments »

HEAR YE, HEAR YE!! Yes, Virginia we now have definitive proof that cavemen did enjoy scooping coffee! In fact cromagnun man (and woman) were the precursor to modern day Starbucks. In response to my recent posting of a neanderthal period coffee scoop, that was presented alongside a lovely model crafted by my L/J friend Jerry W, it was suggested that we begin an archelogical study, a challenge or showcase if you will of scoops and spoons. Because it was my shamelessly (or was it shamefacedl...

Not what was planned but more than expected

11-10-2010 11:42 PM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

If you’ve been following this blog at all you’ll know that I’ve been working on adding a router table top to my table saw. Many of you have provided very helpful insight. Well, things have take a serious turn for the better. What started out as a just a router table top has turned into an outfeed table as well. I was seeking the advice of a friend the other day and the next thing I know we’re in his shop totally revamping my original ideas. The only problem is tha...

First Cutting Board #1: Initial Design

11-08-2010 11:33 PM by Szczuldo | 5 comments »

Well, I have other projects that I “need” to do first but since I just bought a new saw (Grizzly G0715P, review to come after this weekend), i figure this should give me enough practice. I will be using some oak flooring I have left over from a room renovation and some walnut I purchased. Below is the proposed design. I want to keep it simple. As I have it here it is 330 mm x 465 mm x 38.1mm. Final planing will drop the height down of course. Therein lies the problem area. I do...

Chess board. #4: Having opposite grains.

11-08-2010 08:14 AM by degoose | 17 comments »

When making a traditional chess board from timber, the two different timbers are cut into 4 boards each… glued together in alternating stripes and then cross cut and rotated and reglued to make the checker design.. This also gives the squares the same direction of grain pattern. I know that most people shy away from cutting all the squares and then gluing up each piece … but as most of you will know, I have had much practice and for me it is no more difficult than glueing two...

Mitre guage slot / Router table insert size

11-08-2010 06:17 AM by nobuckle | 1 comment »

Over the past few days I’ve been working on adding a router table to my tablesaw. Things have been coming along fairly well. I’ve been able to receive alot of wonder help from various LJ subscribers for which I am very thankful. I now have some other decisions to make and I need your help. Decision 1. What size should I make the router insert plate? Most I’ve seen are about 9” x 12”. One author said to make the insert plate as small as possible without m...

Learning the hard way (revisited)

11-08-2010 02:41 AM by nobuckle | 3 comments »

I haven’t done much today. The only thing I did was to reglue the piece I cut off yesterday back on to the router table top. About 3:00 AM EST I realized that I cut off to much and didn’t leave enough material for the mitre guage slot. It didn’t turn out to bad but it irritates me that I didn’t think of this before I made the cut. Oh well. What’s more is that I stained my table saw surface with glue that bled though the news papaer that I had under my glue u...

I will post when finished… I am also making some chess boards but that is a subject of another blog… in this particular blog I would like to speak about how a different colour can change a project… not the colour of the wood or stain… but the lining… I have had a lot of comments about the Hot Pink felt of th...

So far so good

11-07-2010 03:09 AM by nobuckle | 0 comments »

Had a pretty good day today. I finally decided to stop for the day, seeing that i’ve been up since 5:30 AM EST. I was able to obtain the angle aluminum that is required from a friend of mine. It’s good to have friends that are willing to donate to your cause. On the way back from my friends house I stopped by my local Woodcraft store to pick up the t-track for the mitre slot and was pleasantly surprised to find Scott Phillips from the American Woodshop there. He was there to ...
