Marking Gauge #2: wear strips

5 days ago by harum | 0 comments »

Cut and sanded the strips to the right width, and cleaned the exposed sides with grit 320 sand paper. Have to find a piece of 5/16” brass rod or a couple of bolts for the shoes and come up with a way to cut a thin slit through the beam to hold cutter blades. This slit will be at the bottom of a hole at one of the ends of the beam.

Next Generation Cheese boards... #11: MC Escher tessellations...

5 days ago by degoose | 18 comments »

Recently I was sent a link to Instructables.com… They made an end grain tessellated chopping board… cut with a 400 W laser… My laser is only 80 W so I cut some thinner timber…long grain Rosewood actually… Each lizard fits into the adjacent one… They are almost impossible to glue individually… so put them together dry… used masking tape on the back and smeared glue all over… scraped it across and into the...

Marking Gauge #1: have finally started

6 days ago by harum | 0 comments »

I had been saving a nice Honduran rosewood cut-off for a while before the last weekend. I wanted to make a marking gauge and thought rosewood was a good wood for it: dense and oily. A few gauges seen at LJ and in several ww magazines were an inspiration. The planned dimensions: fence—2-7/8” × 4-1/2” × 7/8”, beam—3/4” × 1” × 9-1/2”. Cut the beam and fence parts; got a 1/8” × 1” brass bar for wear strips from a recycled construc...

Just a video of me and the wooden beard and hair combs that I make.

37 days ago by BTimmons | 16 comments »

I met a local videographer and had a blast shooting this video! It’s more of a general overview of me and how I got started doing what I do. A step by step tutorial it’s not, but I’m extremely happy with how it came out and I think it’s just really cool to see myself working in the third person! Hopefully you all enjoy this too! Thanks, here’s the link! http://vimeo.com/98821147

Chess pieces and board #9: Finishing out the Chess Board

54 days ago by Luke | 3 comments »

Here’s a couple more pics of the progress I’ve made. I glued some veneer around the edges to fill in the gap between the fancy stuff and the edge where the board will transition into the sides. Then it was onto a lot of sanding. What I hadn’t expected was the dust from the Rosewood to stain the maple while sanding. So I sanded it down as good as I could without going through the veneer and then used a cabinet scraper to finish it off. I think it came out really nice and I ca...

Chess pieces and board #8: Finished Pieces Starting on the board

61 days ago by Luke | 2 comments »

Here is the latest:The pieces are all made. On to the board. Birds Eye Maple and Rosewood.I got the veneer supplies ready to go and glued each piece to the 1/2” Birch Ply after cutting them to rough width, 2.25”. I used the full length of each 12” piece of veneer and had a gap in the middle, which was fine because I had enough to get the eight strips out of it. Each strip is 24 inches long and I just cut what I needed out of it and skipped over the gap. I then cleaned up the...

Just for Fun... #83: Where did all the Fun go?

78 days ago by littlecope | 15 comments »

With all the down time this winter, I began to second guess myself, wondering what exactly my “Goals” were (or are) playing around with this Woodworking stuff…When my shop was in a single bedroom in my old apartment I used to have a ball, finding and using old furniture wood, and developing work-arounds for my lack of the necessary machines and tools to do desired functions…At one point I recall thinking, if all else fails, that I would just make boxes, until I ran out...
