The Tone Project

1696 days ago by JimDaddyO | 6 comments »

As a new member here, I figured that I should share the project I am working on. I am by no means a luthier, or a highly skilled woodworker (yet). This is something that I have wanted to do for a long time. It started by felling an ash tree a few years ago and getting it milled into boards. Here I am in my large workshop planing the boards to thickness. Note the fancy chip/dust collector. Did my first bookmatch ever! Made a core from maple. glueing the back to the ...

Redwood Slabs

1707 days ago by dougdeg | 5 comments »

We order a few redwood slabs off of ebay, We were supprised when they came they were quite large, one was 44” wide and 84” long and the other was 27” wide and 72” long. They were cut in a way that most edges were a natural live edge, Which gave them a nice free form look, Redwood was a lot softer than i had thought it wood be but nice to work with.We decide to create a redwood coffee table out of the first piece. I have a friend that has a 36” planer wit...

Rescued Wood #4: Windfall this morning - Yellowwood

1707 days ago by PG_Zac | 6 comments »

I received an unexpected call this morning from our local tree-feller asking me if I would be interested in some discount wood. They had felled a Yellowwood tree, and the proposed buyer had left town for a couple of weeks, so they turned to me. Please understand that Yellowwood (Podocarpus latifolius) is South Africa’s National tree, and is endangered. It may only be felled by special permit. The most recent commercial price list I can find shows Yellowwood planks in less than...

Just for Fun... #8: Of Pattern Making and Raised Panels

1709 days ago by littlecope | 12 comments »

It’s been a few days of inactivity. My work week precluded getting anything done in the shop. All I managed to find time for was tweaking the patterns for the next step. If you recall, after sanding I had a little time left to cut two preliminary patterns or templatesI did that in my usual fashion, inside calipers, pencil, and Grand Dad’s old photographic matte cutterSometimes I get very lucky and cut one that fits. Other times I get one that’s the right width and one that&#...

Production jig for multi business card holders

1711 days ago by Bob #2 | 14 comments »

I sometimes get requests for things I have made one of and find that making a second one is as time consuming as the first and prone to the same errors.To avoid this I try to make jigs that take the guessing out and speed up the process when the need arises. Special thanks to Dusty56 who inspired me and helped me get up and running on this project. To follow this build please see my blog here:

Parquet Blocks Veneer - Any Ideas?

1714 days ago by PG_Zac | 4 comments »

Further to my post on Parquet Floor Blocks, I knew I had to test my veneer cutting skills before (possibly) wasting this beauty..So last night I cleaned my Wood Slicer bandsaw blade with oven cleaner, and tonight I setup the bandsaw, adjusted for the blade drift as best I could (I have never before been completely successful), and ran a few floor blocks through the saw. Firstly, I was shocked that my drift settings were spot on (woo-hoo) and the block sliced like a dream.Secondly, I cut my...

New tool arriving

1715 days ago by rustfever | 12 comments »

Tomorrow, at 9;30 AM, my new ‘old’ Hans stroke sander is to arrive. This one has a 120” X 48” table and an 8” belt. The tables adjusts in/out/up/down. I have been lusting for this tool for some thirty years, after having used one briefly in the late ‘70’s. It is just the size to work upon that ‘promised’ dining room table for Son and his wife. I harvested a number of Claro Walnut trees and root-balls a year ago. The 4/4 material i...

Christmas Project 2009 #3: Box joint mortise and tenon

1720 days ago by dryhter | 0 comments »

The final fitting of the tenon in the mortise. Once I achieve the perfect fit it is time to make the Box joint within the mortise. Note that the mortise pocket is about 1/8th in. deeper than normal as is the tenon, I believe this simple modification goes along way to help strengthen this type of joint. With the aid of a simple jig the box joint is made. Accuracy and close tolerance work is the key to a box joint’s strength, A machinists caliper is probably the easy way to se...
