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...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #18: The Road Trip Did Wonders! I Can't Wait to Get Moving!

06-21-2010 12:54 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Well, after taking the day on Saturday and trying to get some random things around here done on Sunday, its back to some full force work for me. The road trip was really nice. We couldn’t have picked a better day. It was bright and sunny and there was one point in the afternoon where we actually had to put the top up on the car because it was so warm. That’s highly unusual for Nova Scotia and it was one of the hottest days I can remember in the six years I have been here. P...

Barb's Calico Bean Recipe, with Maple Background.

06-18-2010 03:06 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 24 comments »

This isn’t really woodworking, but there’s some wood involved in the presentation. The other day, a friend of ours requested this recipe of Barb’s Calico Beans. She always made these when we went on a picnic, or potluck dinner. We were really impressed by the request, because the person who asked about the recipe hadn’t been in touch with it for about 20 years, but he still remembered how good it tasted. I added my touch to this , by furnishing the maple...

Making boxes with dovetailed splines without a Kehoe jig #2: Box progress today

06-17-2010 07:54 PM by Toolz | 5 comments »

Today I cut the splines fairly flush with a flush cut saw after taping all around them with blue painters tape. Measured and drilled holes to install SOSS barrel hinges, and rough sanded everything to 120 grit. The first photo is of a maple box in progress. I found a 6’ piece of what appears to be 8/4 maple crown molding and decided it would make a neat box/shallow chest. It will have a spalted maple & walnut laminated top. After flush cutting and sanding box bodies. I did...

Making boxes with dovetailed splines without a Kehoe jig #1: Dovetail spline jig and splines

06-16-2010 11:06 PM by Toolz | 9 comments »

The first thing I did was to make a simple jig for cutting the dovetail in the mitered box sides to receive the splines I tried cutting the splines on my router table with a 1/2” 14 degree dovetail bit I used to cut the dovetail slots in the box side. Too many problems for me doing this plus it was a scary experience even using a “small parts jig” to hold the pieces. After re-reading the responses to my questions posted here yesterday http://lumberjocks.com/topics...
