Marking Gauge #4: cut the fence to shape

13 days ago by harum | 1 comment »

The fence is cut to shape and sanded with grit 60. Further sanding will bring the brass screws flush with the brass plate. Next, will cut the brass shoes and cut slit in the rod. The Honduran rosewood is really tough as far as sanding goes, even with low grits.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1376: Meeting Some Friends

16 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is hard to believe that it is Thursday already. I honestly don't know what happened to this past week. It is difficult for me to understand how quickly time can pass, and just when I think it couldn't move any quicker, it seem to accelerate to an even greater speed.I can finally say that I am pretty much caught up with things. While we only were gone for four days, it seems to have taken the next several days to get caught up again. I think it shows me just how busy I can be on a d...

Marking Gauge #3: some progress

22 days ago by harum | 0 comments »

Haven’t had much time lately for my marking gauge: our neighbor pulled out of her garage on her SUV without … opening the garage door. Fixing the door has taken more than I thought it would. Epoxied brass wear strip, the fence and put in the threaded insert. Instead of the suggested 3/8” hole for the insert I had to make it a bit wider than 7/16”—the rosewood’s really hard. Found a brass bolt to be sacrificed for two shoes. The knurled scr...

Marking Gauge #2: wear strips

30 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...

30 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

31 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.

62 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

79 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...
