Just for Fun... #23: And the beat goes on...

07-04-2010 01:25 AM by littlecope | 9 comments »

Who’d have thought it, but I’m making another box!!I made the sides out of a little of the cherry my Parent’s neighbor was kind enough to give me…The bad news is, the band saw only accepts wood under 5 1/2” thick and the original piece was almost 7” wide…The good news is, my boxes are small ones, so I cut about 1 3/4” off of it, and I’ll use that to make the hinges… I guess you can see why this was a cut-off…But the subject tod...

Raised panels chest #1: Raised Panels Jewelry chest with inlays

07-02-2010 09:02 PM by lanwater | 7 comments »

This chest is a class project I did. The design is not mine; the instructor (Jim Vice) provided this design. It took many hours to build and covers many woodworking techniques. It is currently not quite finished yet. I still have to make walnut plugs and cover those screw holes, secure the top, chose some know (I am thinking brass) and of course apply a finish. We primarily used Ash throughout. The drawer dividers, back and bottom are plywood. I chose sapele for the drawer front inl...

The Process of Segmented Woodturning

06-22-2010 01:11 AM by Bob Simmons | 6 comments »

Segmented woodturning is an interesting craft. It is one of those wood projects that requires more than just a wood lathe and some lathe tools. It helps to have woodworking equipment such as a table saw, a planer, a jointer, a mitresaw, an open stand drum sander, and a disc sander. Also when starting out you’ll need to design for your segmented woodturning project . First, decide if you want to turn a bowl, a vase, salt and peppermills, or even a lamp. Next, you’ll need to dr...

A Salad Bowl set of maple & walnut #1: The Cutting and Assembly of Staves

06-11-2010 11:11 PM by Bob Simmons | 7 comments »

As you can see my first maple segment is cut. The dimensioning of the material¬† has been taken care of and the compound mitresaw has the necessary angle. I use a Wixey digital gauge to ensure the accuracy of the sawblades’s angle. The stop-block on the right is clamped into place to maintain a consistent width for the segment.¬† (Note:I always use scrap to test the accuracy of the segment’s angles. I do this by cutting 1/2 the amount of bowl segments and taping the outside perimete...

Finishing the slats

06-05-2010 10:35 PM by Blinky | 3 comments »

Another piece of scrap has befallen my assorted blades, and has now become the slats for the bench. It was a large hunk of Doug Fir or Pine. It was originally going to be a large slab bench, but I decided it would be too large & unwieldy. It was 3” x 12” x 8’ – warped, twisted, split, cupped, weather-worn and worm-eaten; beautiful!Now it’s 6 slats 2 1/4” w x 1 1/2” h x 52” long. The previously mentioned character charms still exist, just...

I spent a very happy day in my workshop today….mostly I jointed, thicknessed and ripped lots of timber… Purple Heart, Silver Ash, Silky Oak…[aka Lacewood] and Tasmanian Blackwood… I used an Incra TSLS 32 to rip fine strips for accents.. More woven pattern projects in the wind. It is such a pleasure to work in the new clean workshop… I moved the 3 metre machine around to make more room to play on the 2 metre machine… and moved the mitre saw… now I hav...

tool Gloat, Inca Jointer

05-25-2010 07:26 AM by JuniorJoiner | 8 comments »

Last week I finished school at Inside Passage. I knew it would be hard to leave all those wonderfully precise and stable machines and return to my machine dry shop. So, when the opportunity arose for a decent little jointer, I took it.This jointer was in poor state when I got it. The tables were out of parallel by a significant amount, causing snipe. the motor was of extreme vintage, grossly oversize(it was 2 1/2 hp), a fire hazard, and running opposite to what was required. There was also a ...
