06-19-2010 05:43 AM by Karson | 14 comments »

Pattern Routing for Fenders for a Toy July 1993 Woodworkers Journal. This is a long detailed blog on pattern routing. I am making a 1920 style Runabout car for the Mason Dixon Woodworkers toy distribution. We usually make about 1300 toys each year that we give to 25 different charities, for them to distribute to the children that they represent at Christmas time. We work every Wednesday, 50 weeks of the year. We are funded by community support in our area, $10.00 here $500.00 there. ...

Making boxes with dovetailed splines without a Kehoe jig #2: Box progress today

06-17-2010 07:54 PM by Toolz | 5 comments »

Today I cut the splines fairly flush with a flush cut saw after taping all around them with blue painters tape. Measured and drilled holes to install SOSS barrel hinges, and rough sanded everything to 120 grit. The first photo is of a maple box in progress. I found a 6’ piece of what appears to be 8/4 maple crown molding and decided it would make a neat box/shallow chest. It will have a spalted maple & walnut laminated top. After flush cutting and sanding box bodies. I did...

Making boxes with dovetailed splines without a Kehoe jig #1: Dovetail spline jig and splines

06-16-2010 11:06 PM by Toolz | 9 comments »

The first thing I did was to make a simple jig for cutting the dovetail in the mitered box sides to receive the splines I tried cutting the splines on my router table with a 1/2” 14 degree dovetail bit I used to cut the dovetail slots in the box side. Too many problems for me doing this plus it was a scary experience even using a “small parts jig” to hold the pieces. After re-reading the responses to my questions posted here yesterday http://lumberjocks.com/topics...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #14: Back to Work . .

06-16-2010 01:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

First of all, I want to thank everyone for their input from yesterdays blog. I read all your thoughts and carefully considered everything that was said. The thing about working on my own the way I do is that sometimes it is hard to see all sides of things. I have three cats here who I consider ‘co-workers’ – although their jobs are more of the ornamental variety, and a partner who is kind of too close to the situation to give a good unbiased opinion. I guess that is why ...

Toot, Toot, Tootorial #3: How to make a whistle on a router table

06-09-2010 08:48 PM by Mary Anne | 38 comments »

Sorry about the delay in posting this tutorial of the series. I ran into some technical difficulties… which is another way of saying I sometimes have the attention span of a gnat and messed things up the first time around. Speaking of messing things up, I’ve injured my knee and have to stay off my feet for a few days. I am only on day two and already going crazy. All in all, it looks a good time for going on with this toot toot tootorial series. —...

The Wine Rack #9: Large Racks Complete

06-09-2010 05:56 AM by Todd Clare | 2 comments »

Although still distracted by the crown molding project, as well as the “rip off the front porch and redesign it” project with the architect we hired, I have found some time to continue on the wine rack. I used the template to flush-trim the larger racks to the final shape and surface. My search for double sided tape ended up with no success (Rockler’s supplier isn’t making it, Woodcraft was out, etc. Need to start searching those internets for it), so I added the ...

Finishing the slats

06-05-2010 10:35 PM by Blinky | 3 comments »

Another piece of scrap has befallen my assorted blades, and has now become the slats for the bench. It was a large hunk of Doug Fir or Pine. It was originally going to be a large slab bench, but I decided it would be too large & unwieldy. It was 3” x 12” x 8’ – warped, twisted, split, cupped, weather-worn and worm-eaten; beautiful!Now it’s 6 slats 2 1/4” w x 1 1/2” h x 52” long. The previously mentioned character charms still exist, just...
