Miter sled the 2nd

09-05-2013 12:28 AM by mIps | 1 comment »

I had a miter sled, but I didn’t really like it. It was heavy and bulky and, to be honest, not really that well made. So, since I had a few pieces leftover from trimming down the reclaimed counter top for my eventual router table, I decided to make a new one! This time I went in knowing a bit more about what I wanted and how I wanted to make it. The base is construction-grade 1/2” ply. Not the best but it’s what I had. the miter guide / fence pieces are leftover trim from...

Rocket Bookcase #4: Coopering the Base

08-22-2013 02:12 AM by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

Finally got back to work on this project…I dove right in with making the staves for thr coopered base on Stage I. My plan is to make a nice curved wall and cut a hatch into it so Keaton can put toys inside. I did some calculations and discovered I needed 12 pieces of wood, angled at 3 degrees per side to make a nice arc. Here’s the basic idea: To make the bevels, I needed a jig to slide each stave into for planing. Nothing fancy, just some scrap pine cut to hole the s...

So many pies; So few fingers (post continued)

08-21-2013 01:01 PM by JustaLilJoinery | 2 comments »

I was sitting eating dinner eagerly planning out the jigs that I’m going to make for the router, drill press, TS and BS now that I have all my major equipment in place. I was even excited that the knobs and bolts kit of almost 150pc that I was going to pick up was on a really nice sale. I finally started to feel like I could start making the things that I like and not just always mickying around As a miniaturist, I have set ups for lots of different hobbies/mediums including resin ...

Large Carved Frame #3: My Experimental Technique

08-20-2013 06:38 PM by Rex B | 2 comments »

Now for the fun part! When we left off last time I had 4 identical pieces with their outer profile finished. Because I had a smooth, continuous profile, I was fairly confident that I could use a single-point guide and follow the profile with my router. My workbench is large and flat enough, so I needed was a pair of “skis” to elevate the router off the bench. Here’s what I came up with: Time to give these new jigs a try. With the blank clamped to the be...

In the light #3: Precision sizing and clean-up of pattern pieces

08-04-2013 02:56 PM by BritBoxmaker | 6 comments »

When I left you I was just about to cut all the pattern pieces. Well I did this successfully and cut all the pieces 2 mm longer than necessary, to allow for clean-up. With pieces 6 mm x 3 mm its very difficult to avoid split out on the cut, even with an 80 tooth cross cut blade. The two mm allows for precision sizing as well. First to clean up the 45° ends. Here’s my belt sander, 915 mm x 100 mm belt. 180 grit for this job. Surrounded by the usual clutter. The mitre gauge for ...

Dovetail Tales #1: A Bandsaw Jig For Pins and Tails

07-24-2013 08:36 PM by GeBeWubya | 4 comments »

You might say I’m a bit router-phobic and handsaw challenged. I needed to find a way to use my bandsaw to cut dovetails for a set of small boxes I’m making. Calling this a jig is a little bit of an exaggeration; I cut a wedge with a `1:7 slope from a 6” 2 X 4. I also added a fence on the blade side of my bandsaw miter gauge. The wedge laying on the flat rectangular face with one triangular face square against the miter gauge fence makes a ramp on which to lay th...

First off it was nice to get back into the shop for a a few hours yesterday and today. It has been a very busy 2 weeks.

A very tough week, then cam e home just in time for our trip to New York. American Girl Doll Store is impressive and so is some of the stuff they sell for the dolls. Look for projects to be posted soon for the newest addition to my ...

Segmented Bowl Clamping Jig

07-03-2013 05:11 PM by lew | 17 comments »

After turning a bowl recently from a solid chunk of log, I thought it might be interesting to try my hand at a segmented bowl. After researching the procedures, I figured I better start with a clamping system to glue the stacked rings. There are a wide variety of clamping devices listed on the various turning sites but they are all discrete units. In my little shop, there just is not any more room for an additional piece. I am at the point where when something comes in- something else has to ...

Make a Pen Press

06-16-2013 03:19 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 6 comments »

Last week in my video showing my first turning project I showed you a Pen Press I made to press the parts of a turned pen together. I asked if you wanted to see a Pen Press How to video and the overall response was yes. So here you go. This is a great little jig for pen turners and those of you who are wanting to venture into pen turning. I hope you enjoy it. Part 1 Part 2
