Bamboo #2

10-28-2010 01:12 AM by WoodArtbyJR | 5 comments »

Well, here are the steps that I accomplished to get to this point. I did run the cut strips thru the drum sander to clean them up a little and to take any imperfections out so the glue would hold better, at least that was the plan. I hope to take the clamps off tomorrow and maybe run it thru the drum sander to see if my design will hold true. Misc. bamboo pieces I have to work with Cut blanks to be cut into strips Cut strips Strips turned on edge Bundled edge pieces Hopefu...

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #15: 2013 a Trail blazing year, 2014 already breaking records.

02-17-2014 07:34 PM by Ethan Harris | 3 comments »

Hello Readers, It certainly has been awhile since I have last shared about my small woodworking business (Spud Woodworks). I have been very blessed over the past year and I wanted to share some of those things with you all. 2013 2013 was my banner year. I started Spud Woodworks as a all around online retail store on Esty, expanded to selling on my own website and made a few sales to local stores. My first 12 month year started slow, and grew to a 5 digit revenue company in my fir...

The Wine Rack #2: Preliminary Design

04-08-2010 04:50 PM by Todd Clare | 10 comments »

I’ve measured the space where I’m going to put the rack, and started to want to visualize the design. I opted to fire up Google SketchUp which has been really useful for me in the past in laying things out and seeing them in 3D. This is the preliminary design only, as I still need to move things around and make sure the spacing and height and shadow lines are where I think I might want them. One of the challenges was how to make it “light” looking, and making the ...

Hi folks I’m totally new to this site and still not quite sure where to posts news. This one is about my future outfeed table and I’ve only now finished the sketchup for it. Still have small problem with it and I’m definitely curious about your comments beore I go further. As I explained in my intro, I’m in the process of setting up my shop and it’ll be very close to what’s shown in a FineWoodworking article by Matthew Teague titled : “Smart sho...

Woodworking For Therapy #11: No Saw Dust This Week, But..........

01-31-2014 01:50 AM by Steve Kreins | 8 comments »

Physically this has been a rough week. My Oral Chemo Medicine (which I prefer to call my poison) has kicked my pew warmer pretty hard. Or as we say in Texas, it put a can of whoop butt on me. Actually more like a 55 gallon drum than a can, but…............. like the Apostle Paul said, “I’ve learned to be content in whatever state I find myself in.” Of course Paul had never been to California, but that’s another story. I may not have made any saw dust but woodw...

Amazing tool for designing awesome end grain cutting boards!

06-19-2017 03:01 PM by jaketodaro | 6 comments »

I build this web-based tool to design cutting boards. It was inspired by cbdesigner, but is web based and supports many different types of patters beyond the basic checkerboard style patterns like chevrons, basket-weaves, pinwheels, and more. Try it out and let me know what you think! http://www.cuttingboarddesigner.com/

ELECTRIC ANGLE SETTING TOOL

03-27-2012 12:37 AM by Metrotek | 6 comments »

Greetings to all; I am attaching scans of a tool that I once made my version of, for setting the table saw blade square to the table. It’s electric running on batteries with a led to indicate. You set it with a steel square on a flat surface; when both pointed probes are touching the blade, the light lights up. They work great and I’m making one after I finished my ersatz Biesmeyer fence. You can get the little battery holders at Radio Shack or simiar.Check out the drawings a...
