movie on cutting a ipe hardwood log in a Bolivian mill with a 7" wide bandsaw

12-21-2012 10:22 PM by Harry Montana | 4 comments »

the principle is a wagon (brand Schiffer) which goes up and down on a rail and the bandsaw (brand Langer) is in a fixed position. For entire mill to operate like this you need 26 employees. Fully automatic mills are available but not recommendable because they get damaged and who is going to repair difficult electronics in the middle of the jungle in a country like Bolivia where there is no spare parts… operating bandsaw cutting ipe boards – 1 operating bandsaw cutting ipe boar...

Obelisks #2: Making an obelisk incense burner

12-19-2012 05:56 PM by Jim Jakosh | 16 comments »

Here are the steps I used to make an obelisk incense burner. I selected a 3 1/2” square by 7” long piece of pretty wood. Box elder in this case. I made a drawing to scale and then had to plan the steps in the process so I did not get ahead of my self because it would be impossible to do some of the steps out of order. Being an incense burner it need air flow to keep the cone burning. I started with the top vent holes while the block was whole. 4 -3/16 holes on a 3/4”...

Making a violin....maybe #1: The begining. A hair brained idea at attempting something kinda crrazy.

12-11-2012 12:59 PM by Ted78 | 16 comments »

Violin construction has always intrigued me and I got a bug in my bonnet about 10 years ago to make a violin. No, I haven’t actually made one yet. Just a lot of false starts. I have carved a couple of tops and backs. first top I made I modelled (unwittingly) from a 3/4 size violin, I carved a back out of maple. I’d read somewhere that’s what the backs and ‘ribs’ the sides are made of. Turns out they are made of soft maple and I used hard maple. I made myse...

Three 2x8's, Three afternoons, One coffee(ish) table #1: Day 1> Prep and glue up

12-10-2012 10:04 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 4 comments »

My daughter, is obtaining her post doctorate in Boston, has a small apartment with a room she lives out of. Her request, a sort of coffee table with second function as ‘sit on the floor’ desk. Also, something she can kick around and as she changes apartments sometimes, something she can move easily and even leave behind if the move is long distance.I love making furniture and I’ve made my share of higher end stuff, but I've made a few things out of home depot framing lumber ...

Need advice...bandsaw power for cutting green rounds and resawing

11-14-2012 05:21 PM by jfk4032 | 3 comments »

I have a 14” Delta bandsaw with a riser block to clear 12” and quickly realized with a 3/4hp motor that wasn’t going to have enough power to cut any significant amount of wet wood. I have collected a large inventory of rounds over the last year or so and wanted to start cutting them this Winter into planks and turning blanks. I’ve been reading as many reviews as I can and want to keep the purchase under $2,000.00. The Jet 18” with a 3 hp motor seems like a g...
