So quite awhile back I was blessed with a Walker Turner 14” bandsaw for just $100 bucks, which I lauded as my way to finally resaw all these cool boards I’ve ammassed- and to this day I still cant get the blade to stay on. Harumph! So I finally got fed up and said to myself, how hard can it be to resaw by hand!? Since I got my Disston D-7 5 1/2 ppi rip saw, I haven’t even tried! My previous attempts were so awful, that I was discouraged… I started with a test p...
Generally the aim of resawing a piece of wood s to divide in neatly in half. One thing you have to account for is the kerf of the saw. If you place a line dead center, one side will end up thinner than the other. For this reason you can offset the line from the center by the width of your kerf (this is a measurement you will be able to eyeball with some ease after converting a couple hundred yards of wood into sawdust). It occurs to me that I should have taken some photos of that layout p...
I believe it was Archimedes who once said “Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.” a more succinct way to say it would be, “levers are awesome”. ...but they don’t just move things. Here I have set up a lever of sorts. The fulcrum being the bench dog, and the clamp being Archimedes. Because of mechanical advantage it would take a tremendous amount of force to move the lever from the end near my vise. ...
Hey all! This is just a really short video of me re-sawing a piece of Cocobolo to be flipped open and book matched. This piece will be used in the center section of one of my Maloof inspired rocking chairs.
I’m using my band saw to re-saw a 2’’ thick piece of Canadian black walnut into 2 boards that I will glue up for the top of a coffee table top. This is a live edge board that measures about 17’’ at it’s widest part, I’ve already squared up the board using my planer due to the boards width. I plan on using the resawn boards for a solid walnut maloof inspired coffee table, I’ve never done this coffee table base with a live edge so I’...
Today I’m working on a solid walnut coffee table, cafe table, low back chair and rocking chair all built in the maloof style of joinery and sculpting. I’m walking through my shop located in Acton, Ontario, Canada, describing what i’m working on, my pieces are built in the maloof style so lot’s of sculpting and sanding (-: Very strong dowel and tongue and groove joints. Thanks for having a look!
So I decided to build a Greene and Greene Style Clock after visiting the Gamble house in Pasadena earlier this month. To do this though, I was going to have to locate material for the project and the plans called for a lot of varying thicknesses of material like 1/4”, 1/2”, 5/8” 3/4” and so on. I could purchase the pre milled wood that any Rockler or Woodcraft carries but this would mean using material from different trees most likely and trying to get the grain and co...
See HERE for completed project Recently, I bought a Grizzly bandsaw. One of the reasons I decided to buy a bandsaw was to re-saw lumber for use on a scroll saw. The scroll saw was my first ‘tool’ that I bought, and before, I was limited to purchased plywoods for my scroll saw cuts. I was quite surprised at how much wood can be obtained from a single length of wood when re-sawn. It will definitely expand my creativity for such projects. Outlined is the first such project ...
Today, I found a nice bandsaw for a good price and picked it up this morning. It’s not a Rikon or PowerMatic, but it will more than suffice for my needs at this time. Grizzly G0555 w/6” extension – this gives me about 10-12” of resaw capacity, so I can resaw the wood I have been collecting from broken furniture. Since I didn’t have to pay for shipping and sales tax and the accessories, it was quite a good deal for me. Here’s a picture of it in the ...
