Tumbling block cutting board techniques, lessons learned and tips for cutting and assembly

01-13-2014 02:32 PM by jfk4032 | 8 comments »

After looking through some other blogs here on LJ and watching some Youtube videos I thought that the tumbling block cutting board was something that looked challenging, cool and something I wanted to try. I learned some good ideas from these other blogs and wanted to share some of my experiences having now made three of these, my setbacks and discoveries to better produce these tumbling block patterns. I purchased a Wixey digital angle gauge as it looked like you really needed to be accu...

The plan file is available for download. Hopefully this will inspire a sled for your shop! David STOP BLOCK DETAIL FRONT FENCE DETAIL

"Art Box" Tutorial #6: The Lid

06-30-2009 04:42 PM by Andy | 11 comments »

Updated 1/15/12 Regarding wood movement:Depending on the wood you use, where you live, and your own personal experience,y ou may want to allow more clearance.This is what works for me. I really dont allow for any movement at this stage. I know this sounds like trouble waiting to happen, but it works just fine for me. Even if we start off with a snug fit, we will still end up with a small gap around the perimeter. This is due to the final sanding and easing of the edges between lid and l...

Grinder Sculpting #1: the box

12-17-2011 05:57 AM by JoeyG | 5 comments »

Hello again everyone. I had such a great time doing the last blogs, I just had to do another. This as the name states, will be about sculpting a box with a right angle grinder. I have began using this method after seeing Andy’s and Gary’s wonderful, sculptures that we like to call boxes. I saw it and just new it was something I wanted to get good at. Some people look at chip carving or the spirit in the tree, I saw how with just a little grinding on a straight grain board th...

Fishing Nets Made My Way

09-08-2010 11:47 PM by Greg | 8 comments »

I wanted to share my experiences in making landing nets with you. This is from an article I wrote for the August 2010 edition of On The Fly, the newsletter for the Fly Fishing Club of Orange County. Building the Perfect Landing NetBy Greg Madrigal Like many of you, I started fishing when I was very young, and something about it never let go of me. Growing up with 5 sisters left our family with little to no money most of the time. Work for my father was hard to come by growing u...

Project SC #1: Tightrope walking for beginners

08-08-2010 04:07 PM by BritBoxmaker | 21 comments »

In my last blog I showed a pattern which I am determined to try. It is made of rectangles from 1mm to 12mm in size. Due to a shortage of materials (Ebony) I am making the pattern from 1mm to 10mm. This is because my aim is to make a box using this pattern (or parts thereof) on all visible faces. This is the tallest order I have placed on myself to date. ImpossibleII now seems a fond memory. Machining wood down to 1mm square is a nightmare. A bit like I imagine tightrope walking to be a...

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...

Double Step Cutting Board, errr Hot Pot Holder

12-16-2010 03:38 AM by jeepturner | 10 comments »

After looking at SPalm’s step cutting board blog, I figured that I would have to try my hand at making a double step board. I found some cherry, maple and purple heart from prior projects I followed the instructions to but the pieces: After glue up and cutting the two sections, I knew I wouldn’t have enough, so I set my sights a little lower.I had enough of the triangles to make a hexagon. I really need to rethink the clamping process before I start the next one, and al...

Split Roubo Workbench #1: I have put this off for far too long

03-20-2012 02:32 AM by lysdexic | 127 comments »

Ok, so let me get this blog started before I get so far behind that I put it off – forever. It is undisputed that the most important tool in the woodworking shop is a proper workbench. I don’t have one. I will not rehash the nuances of workbench design but after reading Schwarz’s and Scott Landis’s books, I had my heart set on a Roubo bench. I am not alone as several LJ’s have posted wonderful roubo benches. At first I wanted to build this… I r...
