Adventures with Wax #1: Wood Butter (What you got in your box?)

105 days ago by PAJA | 5 comments »

I recently made my first grease box. I’m sure it won’t be the last version of it, but it’s a start. I’m not alone in the “Could’a, should’a, would’a” thoughts as a project comes to a close. Size, shape, wood choice, overall design, etc. You have to start somewhere before you get it right. The next decision…What to put in it? Wood butter, spoon oil, grease, paste, wax, whatever you want to call it. Something must go in there...

Making a Rolling Pin

198 days ago by nobuckle | 1 comment »

This a short (short for me anyway) video that shows how I made a rolling pin. It was good to fire up the lathe again. Especially to make something that will last for generations. I hope it inspires you to make one of your own. Thanks for watching.

Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #7: Yet Another Update

1097 days ago by lew | 20 comments »

Thought I would add a couple of additional “discoveries” on making these rolling pins. One of my obvious problems is that I always over think or over engineer everything. The Trim Jig is one of those examples. It now hangs, useless, along with so many other jigs that I have abandoned for a better way. Trimming the glued up inserts is easier, faster and less hassle if done on the band saw. No jig is require and the table saw blade height does not have to be changed between opera...

Wood Types and Properties #2: Know your wood #2-Beech

1156 days ago by Paul Sellers | 3 comments »

Beech trees grow abundantly throughout the temperate zones of Europe, Asia and North America. The wood is of very even denseness throughout the grain because of its relatively small pores evenly distributed through both the early and late growth of each growth cycle (annual ring). My first mallet was made from beech and most mallets for three hundred years would have come from the beech tree. Though that is the case, and beech is a hard wood, I find beech just a little too soft for making...

Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #6: Additional Update

1309 days ago by lew | 19 comments »

I got called up to active duty- substituting full time in an Information Systems Technology class. So this update has been sometime in developing. Back in the early spring of this year, I had the very great pleasure of meeting the Mason Dixon Wood Working Club. We got together to learn how to make these Celtic Knot rolling pins. During the workshop session, LJ Karson suggested that it would be easier, and less wasteful, to make a saw kerf for only the walnut strips and leave the origina...

Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #5: Update

1806 days ago by lew | 17 comments »

The other day, I posted another rolling pin. There have been several requests about how to make them. I thought I should update this tutorial with the new and improved trimming jig. Top of jig- hold down clamps, handle, and cutout. The cutout is the main new part to this jig. Previously I was using my tapering jig. The problem I encountered was that if the trimming process was not perfectly flush with the pin blank during the first trimming operation, then the blank would not clamp fla...

Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #4: Glue Up and Trimming The Blank- The Final Steps

2107 days ago by lew | 14 comments »

Before starting this section, I forgot to add to pix into the previous post. This is the spacer strip used to reposition the blanks for the second cut. The spacer goes between the blank and the fence. This shows the blank seated against the rear stop and the blank is labeled to assure it is not reversed during the various cutting operations. I found it easier to glue if I oriented the blank with the diagonal cut facing up. I use an old restaurant cutting board as a gluing wor...

Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #3: Making the Saw Cuts For the Strips

2107 days ago by lew | 3 comments »

Once the blank has the layout lines drawn, it is time to cut the slots for the ellipses. The first step is to set the blade height. When the cut is made, there should be about 1/8” of material left holding the two sides together. This really aids in the glue up by keeping the pieces aligned. Set the blank on the jig and adjust the angle and the end stop so that the front SHORTER layout line is positioned to the LEFT side of the blade cut. Orientation is when you are standin...

Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #2: Laying Out the Blank

2108 days ago by lew | 4 comments »

This second part will concentrate on the layout of the rolling pin blank in preparation for cutting the slots. Create a blank that is 22” long and 2” square. Locate the center of the length (11”) and carry a line around the blank. The ellipses are 11” long and made of three pieces of 1/8” thick materialLayout a mark 5 ½” on either side of the center line and accurately carry the lines around the blank. To assist in laying out the diagonals, use a 3/8” thick spacer gauge, drawing lines...
