My Tools #6: Jet 16-32 drum sander

07-07-2010 03:09 AM by Gary Fixler | 19 comments »

Mom visited a couple of weeks back for 10 days. She tends to come out once per year in the summer to see me, her only son. She helped me replace some broken things in my continuing “everything’s breaking” period (broke a bit last week on the mill – pricey, too – my computer a week or two before that, and my TV shortly before that, sigh…). Then over dinner for her birthday somewhere nice we talked about woodworking, and my idea for making some things like cu...

Raised panels chest #1: Raised Panels Jewelry chest with inlays

07-02-2010 09:02 PM by lanwater | 7 comments »

This chest is a class project I did. The design is not mine; the instructor (Jim Vice) provided this design. It took many hours to build and covers many woodworking techniques. It is currently not quite finished yet. I still have to make walnut plugs and cover those screw holes, secure the top, chose some know (I am thinking brass) and of course apply a finish. We primarily used Ash throughout. The drawer dividers, back and bottom are plywood. I chose sapele for the drawer front inl...

Creating Bandings for Inlay #2: A Video of the process

07-01-2010 12:35 AM by Bob Simmons | 0 comments »

If you’re like me you’ve probably looked in various woodworking magazines over time and have read articles on applying wood inlay. Sometimes the inlay can be rather simple and yet it becomes a nice accent. Other times the inlay can be somewhat complex and it can really grab your attention. I suppose that’s why inlay has been around for thousands of years. For example, the Egyptians, Chinese, Persians, and other cultures used inlay millenniums ago to embellish their works ...

Tools #2: Performax Dust Shroud replacement

06-27-2010 06:25 PM by Jim Brown | 8 comments »

First things first: I’m writing about something I did … I’m not saying you should do it. Use your own judgment and common sense! Read your manuals. If something seems dangerous, don’t do it. I’m no expert … not by a long shot, so don’t trust me over what your granddad told you or over what the little voice in your head tells you about keeping track of your digits and limbs. I welcome all supportive advice, feedback, and questions. Recently I bought...

four station desk #1: First look

06-23-2010 10:43 AM by 559dustdesigns | 3 comments »

I’m now working on a couple of desks for a Medical clinic. I’ve been working on this project for about 13 days now. I built this unit out of oak plywood and red oak lumber. I started this project by constructing the the upper portions first. I had to wait to receive my hardware before building the base cabinets. This set of desks is custom for the client, the first desk station on the left is 50” wide than there is (3) 40” wide stations one of the stations is going to ...

The Process of Segmented Woodturning

06-22-2010 01:11 AM by Bob Simmons | 6 comments »

Segmented woodturning is an interesting craft. It is one of those wood projects that requires more than just a wood lathe and some lathe tools. It helps to have woodworking equipment such as a table saw, a planer, a jointer, a mitresaw, an open stand drum sander, and a disc sander. Also when starting out you’ll need to design for your segmented woodturning project . First, decide if you want to turn a bowl, a vase, salt and peppermills, or even a lamp. Next, you’ll need to dr...

A Salad Bowl set of maple & walnut #1: The Cutting and Assembly of Staves

06-11-2010 11:11 PM by Bob Simmons | 7 comments »

As you can see my first maple segment is cut. The dimensioning of the material¬† has been taken care of and the compound mitresaw has the necessary angle. I use a Wixey digital gauge to ensure the accuracy of the sawblades’s angle. The stop-block on the right is clamped into place to maintain a consistent width for the segment.¬† (Note:I always use scrap to test the accuracy of the segment’s angles. I do this by cutting 1/2 the amount of bowl segments and taping the outside perimete...
