Intarsia Basics #3: Let’s Do Some Cutting!

04-19-2012 02:25 AM by KoryK | 9 comments »

Thanks for joining us for the third installment of “Intarsia Basics” and this is where it starts to get really fun. Cutting out the pattern is one of the best parts of doing this kind of art. It takes a little practice to get used to using your saw. You can look up some practice patterns or just make some zig zags, loop the loops, straight lines, gentle curves, and circles on a piece of paper and glue to a practice board. Cut out some of these and you will start getting used to the “feel ...

Drum/Disc Sander #1: Help / Input request - Speeds for Drum & Disc Sander I plan to build.

04-18-2012 09:07 PM by Kevin May | 1 comment »

Jocks, I need your help with determining the Drum diameter for a sander I plan to build. (see earlier post for image). The issue is that I have two options (sizes of steel tubing I have) for the diameter of the drum, either 4-1/2” or 6-5/8”. The design of my Drum/Disc sander has both the drum and the disc mounted on the same shaft. This allows me to drive both with a single 2HP, 1725rpm motor I have. The primary decision I am faced with is which size drum to build. The...

Coffee Table - Red Oak & Padauk #2: Legs and Apron

04-16-2012 05:44 PM by Mosquito | 2 comments »

I’m back! I got another days worth of work done on Saturday, while the weather was nice I cut the legs from oak 4×4’s using a handsaw: I cut all 4 legs, then I used my router to make part of the tenons on the Apron boards: This was messy… And it looked like I was eating Cheetos all day and wiping my hands on my shorts: My first Mortice and Tenon! Not the best, but it’s at least a decent flat fit All the tenons are done, and 2 legs have the Mor...

DRUM/DISC SANDER - HOMEMADE

04-14-2012 03:03 AM by Kevin May | 3 comments »

I have decided to build a combination Drum/Disc Sander. This project is driven by my recently acquired interest in building end-grain cutting boards, and my dislike of hours of sanding those boards. As my day job is related to machine design, this shouldn’t be too much of a stretch for me, beyond the fact that I will get to personally get to do most of the ‘building’ myself. This unit will be built from metal, not wood. What I believe that is unique (as far as I know) ...

Mission Style Bed #3: Head and Footboard Assembly

04-11-2012 11:50 PM by Fraser Gandy | 2 comments »

Alright, did a lot of work the past while, even though it seems like I haven’t. I’ve been busy working!I started with the footboard, I first lined all the slats up in between the rails. This was probably one of the most frustrating parts of this whole project. Once I got them all pretty well in there, I attached the rails to the legs and that sorted out the slats for the most part. Once I did that, I noticed that my mortises and slats and stuff didn’t quite look as nice a...

Intarsia Basics #2: Preparing Your Wood and Pattern for Cutting

04-11-2012 01:20 AM by KoryK | 18 comments »

Intro: Hello to all and welcome to the first installment of Intarsia Basics. Before we can start cutting we need to select the wood we want to use and get our pattern ready. Wood Choices: I prefer to start with stock that is one inch thick because that gives you a lot of depth that you can work with. It will require a little more sanding on some areas but it will help to give your piece a 3D look. It is your choice if you prefer to stain your wood to achieve the colors or use exot...

I'm still here

04-06-2012 01:25 AM by T. D. Reid | 3 comments »

I haven’t fallen of the face of the earth but I am behind on the Queen Size bed build. It has become a money pit because of a 5/8” mortising bit that I didn’t own. Then I realized that the throat on the mortising machine is on 6” and the bottom rail is 8” so I ordered a 5/8” mortising chisel. While waiting for it to get here I dry fit the head board and low and behold a queen size bed is more than 6’ wide and by the way that was the longest length of pipe clamp that I owned. So then I shell o...

Cutting Boards #5: Sanding, routing, sanding...

04-01-2012 08:33 PM by MolokMot | 2 comments »

The cutting board as seen in the picture below is just about complete. Just needs a little more sanding and finish. Since the last post, here are the steps completed: Using my dewalt random orbit sander I went through both 60 and 100 grit. After that I used what I believe to be a half inch round over in several passes. I left one side a much lighter pass then the other so that the cutting board can be used either way depending on the taste of its new owner. After routing, I went thro...
