Carving a carving knife #1: First attempt to make a carving knife

10-22-2010 04:38 PM by PaBull | 11 comments »

My second oldest daughter needs a birthday gift and I have only days to complete it. Don’t you love those last minute projects? She is into carving, but only has the carving set with the “end blades”. So why not build a carving knife. So last knight I started with a block of pallet wood, a rod of 3/16 brass and a sawzall blade.The shape I was going for is shown here: I took a sawzall blade and cut it in half with a sheet metal cutter. (this stuff is hard to cut) After ...

Techniques & Methods #4: The Infamous Dovetails Scribed Line

07-23-2010 04:34 PM by PurpLev | 23 comments »

I keep seeing these posts pop up more often than not about the scribed line for dovetails, should you leave them on? should you scrap/sand them off? Some say it tells the joint was hand made, Others rightfully so say that the piece itself tells that it was hand made…. Should you make them with a scriber? Or a pencil? A pencil line is easier to remove, but harder to line up to as you are relying on eye sight, Whereas a scribed line with a knife is a no brainer since you just rest your...

That's not a Knife.....

05-08-2010 09:35 PM by degoose | 4 comments »

This is a knife…..well at least the handle.. I had a mate ask me to make a knife handle to replace the plastic handle he had on it.. . A small block of Hairy Oak was selected and then resawn. ... the two halves of the knife handle were double-stick taped together...to maintain grain pattern across both sides.....the shape drawn and cut on the bandsaw. As he wants to do the shaping and carving, I only had to rough cut the shape...only a coupla minutes to do it. I will post p...

Work(shop) in Progress #8: New Table Saw: Low Profile Riving Knife for Ridgid R4511

04-13-2009 03:51 AM by PurpLev | 53 comments »

So among the few shotcuts that were made by providing the R4511 at the market price was the fact that it only came with a splitter+integrated blade guard but no additional low profile riving knives (for non through cuts). for the price this saw comes at – one can’t complain, and the fact is- it does have a riving knife mount system which is a good base to start with. solution: homemade riving knife made out of 1/8” plate of 6063 aluminum: EDIT: If I’d do this again,...

Work(shop) in Progress #6: New Table Saw : Unpacking and Assembly of Ridgid R4511

03-22-2009 05:01 AM by PurpLev | 50 comments »

So after much research and debates, I have finally charged the card, and 2 days later the delivery arrived with the new saw in the box (I opted to have it delivered from the store as opposed to pick it up myself – at 450lbs, I simply wouldn’t be able to unload it myself) Delivery from HD was swift and smooth, positive and friendly guy stop at my place saturday morning, and helped me position the box in my garage – I couldn’t be happier (took 5 minutes, 4.5 of those was...

A Bit of Rambling about a Beautiful Sunny Day, and Being Bummed Out about A Stolen Knife

09-09-2008 08:15 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 12 comments »

I awoke this morning to a dreary, cold, very foggy day. I don’t mind fog, my morning commute to work is only about 40 feet behind the house, and a little fog doesn’t slow me down much walking out there. Actually, it is mornings like this that I’m reminded how much I have to be thankful for. Back in the days when I had to commute by car 87 miles to Wichita, a foggy morning like this one was a real burden, even treacherous. I always write on the calendar when we have ...

DANGER! Chinese Plywood

04-03-2008 10:56 PM by Tom Adamski | 46 comments »

Yes it’s cheap, and most of the time it will warp as soon as it is removed from the stack, but it can also be dangerous. Acording to an employee at Owl Hardwood in Lombard, IL, there is an instance where metal was found between the plys. The consumer that bought it found what appeared to be a utility knife blade while he was ripping the sheet on a table saw and in doing so, destroyed his blade. No coments if the person was injured, but I would not want to be around when pieces of ca...

Christmas Projects #1: Started my Christmas projects.

11-22-2007 07:08 AM by Sgt_Lobo | 1 comment »

Well, as I said in last night’s blog, today I started 3 projects that I need to finish in time to send off before Christmas. So I guess my insomnia paid off though because I was able to draw up my plans, measure and mark all my wood last night which made cutting today go allot quicker. So, today between baking pies and pumpkin bread, I managed to cut all my pieces to length, rip them to width, and miter the ends. Not bad for a days work. Heres some pics/teasers… 1st pic...

Confirmation on the order for the Custom Steak Knife Sets

11-13-2007 10:16 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 12 comments »

Well, after being excited, then not, then excited, then not, and then excited, and then not, for the past 3 weeks, today I was told that a check is in the mail for the deposit money for the Custom Steak Knife sets I will be making. So, I’m officially at “excited” again. I posted a few days ago about the knife/scrimshaw samples being sent here: http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/decoustudio/blog/2470 Now, I just wanted to follow up, and post that I did get the order today....
