Movie Lounge 1 #1: Star Frame

12-03-2011 05:58 AM by grosa | 1 comment »

This blog is showing how I made the star frame that covers a one-way mirror. Hope you all like it. This is how I cut out all my projects. I don’t use a CNC. I use a Scroll saw and an inverted pin router. I am cutting it out on a CR Onsrude inverted pin router model 36210. Being very careful around the tips of the stars. How the insert mates with the frame. All joints get bondo because the frame will be painted. This is how they look together. This MDF insert Is a one p...

Work In Progress #2: Canasta Part Two

11-20-2011 06:11 AM by Byron | 0 comments »

So unfortunately I had not taken many pictures during the process of hand planing the curved door as well as cutting the dovetails for the carcass. I wanted the door to be thin, very thin, which ultimately led to many, many problems. I ended up with a final thickness of a bout 1/4 inch. While I was milling the door I did not have the wood move on me much at all, the Avodire I ended up getting was so incredibly stable I could do almost anything to it and it would not warp. The one thing ...

Milling on the Bandsaw

11-15-2011 06:53 PM by LelandStone | 3 comments »

For some while now I’ve had some lemon and olive logs simply…growing old in my shop, waiting for me to “get around to it” and make some sort of milling attachment for my ShopFox bandsaw. (No, I wouldn’t buy it again; it’s a machine which cuts corners where it shouldn’t, in my opinion.) Naturally, I wanted a cradle that would adjust in and out relative to the blade (on the X-axis?), while allowing me to rotate the log 90 degrees AND holding it secu...

Entryway Bench #2: More Assembly, Old-Growth Pine Milling

11-15-2011 05:54 AM by superstretch | 3 comments »

FrameI finally got some more work done on the entryway bench.. I anchored the seat frame to the walls and then constructed the legs cut and screwed in underneath. I originally wanted to make the entire thing out of beams and barn boards that I had outside.. but simplicity triumphed and I resorted to 2×4s. In the long run, I think they’ll stand up better and would hold to the walls without the screws pulling through. — Seat/StorageAs you can see from the pictures...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #1: FINALLY- The first episode is done! You're gonna LOVE IT!

11-12-2011 01:08 AM by StumpyNubs | 63 comments »

Maybe “LOVE” is a strong word. But I’m really excited about the final version of the show, and I think most people will feel the same way. Forget about everything we experimented with before. This is all new. It’s been over a year in development, and And I’d like to think it is a pretty unique format! Here’s how it works… The show is designed to have the feel of a single camera “reality” type show. It is meant to be a glimpse into our workshop as if you were just stopping in...

Custom Knife Blocks #4: So many inlays!!!

11-07-2011 11:38 PM by wdkits1 | 3 comments »

Each of the knife blocks gets a quarter circle bloodwood inlay on each side where the ends of the side pieces come together. On the prototype I made a jig to use a 2” forstner bit to cut an 1/8” deep recess for the inlay but the client wanted the inlay bigger so I bought a 3” forstner bit for the production blocks. The jig works great and drilling the 1/8” recesses went very well. Just a matter of loading the side piece into the jig, clamping in place and dri...

Fresh Walnut slabs

11-06-2011 02:07 AM by WoodLe | 9 comments »

Got a chance to slab a large walnut log today that I just picked up. Put a brand new chain on my mill and took off cutting. Went pretty good till the second cut when my saw found that 7 inch bolt that was just waiting to snag my chain. Had to resharpen a couple times but all said and done I got seven nice slabs all 3-4 inches thick. Large ones are about 36 inches on the small end to about 44 inches at the large end by 10 feet long. I will be posting on my website after awhile. Gota ge...

Optimal Cutting with minimum scrap - iPad app

11-02-2011 12:31 PM by SmartCutter | 18 comments »

I recently finished working on a cutting algorithm app for the iPad and iPhone called Smart Cutter, and wanted to share the app with every one hoping get some feedback from carpenters and wood workers. Smart Cutter finds the maximum number of small pieces cut from a larger sheet of paper with minimum scrap. It employs a state of the art algorithm to generate the maximum number of small pieces cut from a larger sheet of paper, wood, cloth or any other material, with minimum waste. Whether y...

Firewood Plane #1: Alternative Plane Blanks

10-26-2011 06:01 AM by tr33surg3on | 3 comments »

It seems I had nothing better to do tonight, because I ended up splitting a plane blank out of a piece of firewood and planing the four faces down. Partially it was to see if I could do it. Partially it was to try out a beater Stanley #5 I picked up a few weeks ago without having to go through the trouble of actually lapping, sharpening or otherwise tuning it properly. And partially I realized the turning blanks I picked up from the Rockler scrap bin are probably just a bit too small...
