Epoxy Inlay #1: carving and first layer of epoxy

1000 days ago by JoeyG | 14 comments »

I start with the lid already sized for the box. This one is purpleheart. I know, it’s almost impossible to carve, but it’s what the customer ordered. So I find a way. Next is to design your inlay After the drawing is done, I cover it with scotch tape or box tape Then comes the mirror and xacto knife After my stencil is made I transfer it to my lid blank With my trusty chip carving knife, I carve in my design. Since purpleheart is so hard I chose to o...

I have spent the last few days in the workshop working out how to make this jig.. and have it durable and repeatable and totally accurate and easy to use.Actually this jig can be used for two different projects … well probably more that two but thats all I have used it for so far.To start, I had to build a table to go over the bandsaw table for the jig to pivot on.

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:http://shopprojectsandjigs.blogspot.com/2011/01/production-jig-for-multi-business-card.html

Today I sanded, I sliced, I diced and I shaped. I was not at home to Mr. Cockup. Today I’m fierce and to the strains of ‘Fearless’ off, Pink Floyd’s Meddle off I went. All this took just two hours.. First I sanded all the slices to 6.93mm then I glued them together (superglue, most precise and quickest) Then I shaped the triagle ends on the disc sander The I fulfilled my promise of yesterday and chopped them into little pieces Back to the...

Building a Tablesaw Base Part 1

497 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 13 comments »

Recently I had a need to build a new table saw base for my saw. Rather than just building a simple replacement base, I opted to build one with lots of storage potential. This new base measures 6 feet long by 2 feet wide, which gave me good reason to move over to the new shop building. I haven’t yet finished the new shop set up ( haven’t even started) but this build is a great start giving me lots of options for storage potential… This build is a 2 part project. So be sure to...
