David's [aka Patron] double curve..my version of the jig? #3: Just kidding!

06-13-2009 01:05 PM by degoose | 8 comments »

Basic 1/4 ” plywood.. mark a line at a diagonal across the board.NB. the sharper the angle the longer the piece that can be cut.Inset two bearings on this line 19” on centre to enable the use of the 9.5” Radius template from the first jig with single curve. Fit a bolt in the righthand bearing and fit to the bearing in the base unit.. turn on bandsaw and cut the curve till you reach the line and then change pivot points to the left hand side of both the jig and the base unit ...

Instructions For Making A Wine Bottle Balancer.

11-04-2011 07:49 AM by Trev_Batstone | 1 comment »

Here are the instructions for making my style of the wine bottle balancer: 1. Cut pieces to size on the table saw: 3”x12” (3/4” stock). 2. Drill angle hole at 45 degrees, 3” from one end on the drill press with a 1 3/8” forstner bit. 3. Cut rounded top on band saw, jig saw, or scroll saw. 4. Round over edges on both sides of the board with a round-over bit on router table (this is optional, but it just makes for a more decorative look and...

you asked..........RING TUTORIAL

06-20-2009 07:11 PM by kolwdwrkr | 9 comments »

I wanted to start off with a big THANK YOU to everyone who commented on my jewelry, and to those interested in the process. It’s appreciated. I had a few inquiries to make a blog on how I made the ring, so I decided to accomodate. After all, isn’t this what this site is for. I want to make something clear first.
