Optimal Cutting with minimum scrap - iPad app

11-02-2011 12:31 PM by SmartCutter | 18 comments »

I recently finished working on a cutting algorithm app for the iPad and iPhone called Smart Cutter, and wanted to share the app with every one hoping get some feedback from carpenters and wood workers. Smart Cutter finds the maximum number of small pieces cut from a larger sheet of paper with minimum scrap. It employs a state of the art algorithm to generate the maximum number of small pieces cut from a larger sheet of paper, wood, cloth or any other material, with minimum waste. Whether y...

Let's Make Picture Frames with the Dedicated Miter Sled

12-15-2010 07:05 PM by Bob Simmons | 10 comments »

“Learning never exhausts the mind.” Leonardo da Vinci…(1452-1519) Architect, musician, anatomist, inventor, engineer, sculptor, and painter. Making picture frames in the woodworking shop is fun especially when we have a system in which to work. In this case we are making the frames from picture moulding that was made on the router table and also on the table saw using dado blades. The dado on the moulding will house the decorative wood inlay that we have previously crea...

Intarsia Basics #3: Let’s Do Some Cutting!

04-19-2012 02:25 AM by KoryK | 9 comments »

Thanks for joining us for the third installment of “Intarsia Basics” and this is where it starts to get really fun. Cutting out the pattern is one of the best parts of doing this kind of art. It takes a little practice to get used to using your saw. You can look up some practice patterns or just make some zig zags, loop the loops, straight lines, gentle curves, and circles on a piece of paper and glue to a practice board. Cut out some of these and you will start getting used to the “feel ...

Hello to all and all are Welcome, Intro: Hi, my name is Kory Kiker and a couple of weeks ago Ms. Debbie contacted me about conducting an online class for those interested in learning the art of intarsia. I was very excited about the chance to share a few things I have learned in the last three years of doing intarsia art. Before intarsia I did a lot of wood carving so I hope this helps give each project more depth and definition. I will tell you now that most of the things I’ve lear...

Hide Glue #2: Hide Glue Primer

01-28-2009 01:03 AM by David | 15 comments »

I am interested in hide glue for a number of reasons. The first of which is the “romance” of using a traditional method that has its foundations as far back as Ancient Egypt and the cabinet shops of Colonial America. I also appreciate the pace of using hide glue . . . slow while getting set-up and quick when applying the glue. I also like the reversibility of hide glue and the fact that it accepts stain and finish without leaving telltale glue marks like that pesky spot of PVA ...

Make a Folding Out Feed Table for your Table Saw

02-20-2013 05:22 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 16 comments »

This Week I show you how to make a folding out feed table for your table saw. This design was based after an article and plan found in a 2009 issue of Woodworker’s Journal Magazine. Originally the plan was designed for a Cabinet saw with a Biesemeyer Fence System, so I had to make some slight modifications for my Porter Cable Saw. In this 3 part video series I show you a step by step on building this project as well as talk about the modifications I had to make. The Article and plans ca...

Precise angles - What's the best way to cut them?

11-09-2011 10:00 PM by nobuckle | 11 comments »

I’m in the process of making this years Christmas gifts and one project in particular is turning out to be a real challenge. The goal is to create a mirror frame that consists of eight pieces with each piece having a 22.5 degree miter on both ends. For many this would be no problem, it’s just a simple cut on the ol’ power mitre saw. Not so for me. My power miter saw is anything but precise. “Why not use the TS?”, you might ask. I probably will, IF I can come up w...

Episode 82 Entertainment Center Part 3

10-15-2010 01:44 AM by kosta | 6 comments »

Episode 82 Entertainment Center Part 3 from kostas workshop on Vimeo.In this episode I cut the dados for the 2 middle panels. Then I dry fit the top bottom side and middle panels. Then I get the measurements for the door compartment shelves. I am cutting dados that are 1/4 in deep and 5/8 in wide. I am using a ryobi 5/8 in straight bit to cut the dados and it worked better than I though it would. In part 2 I had said that I was going to use the T square I built for trimming the panels down to...
