Scrolled Wooden Puzzles #4: The Grasshopper and the End

07-29-2008 12:13 AM by Allison | 5 comments »

This is the puzzle all cut out and put back togetherNotice I did not even really try to cut my “G” and “H” perfect. You can see where ther is some to be removed also between the “O” and “P”. I would have rather cut this out better but I did not, nor did I notice it till now. In comes “The Cheater” My term of endearment to one of my very favorite tools I own. My very old Delta 1×42 inch belt sander (with a 8 inch) disc sander on ...

This is the way I have chosen to cut this out. First to go is the “O”. Leaving me with with the long “H” which is like the backJust a short tiny cut removes the 1st “P”of the double “P’s” Now I only have the “H” left and the “G” and I can cut them any which way I want to.In the next and last of this much too long series I will be bringing in “The Cheater”

Seat Forming - a continuation from my prototype stool "project post"

07-25-2008 09:36 PM by FritzM | 5 comments »

I decided to start this as a blog after comments recieved on my stool project post. Let me start by saying I’ve never shaped a seat before, but have really been wanting to…... The comments on my stool post were just the motivation I needed. To clarify my design intent, I wasn’t trying to copy Kaleo’s stool, I wanted to come up with my own interpretation. One of my criteria was that I not break the planes that are defined by the outer edges of the legs. I really wan...

Scrolled Wooden Puzzles #1: Alligator and grasshopper

07-22-2008 02:20 AM by Allison | 4 comments »

This is the plate of my Scroll saw. What I am going to do for this project is I am going to cover it with a couple sheets of white paper and a playing card. I have a couple of reasons for this. First is I don’t want any small pieces I will be cutting to fall through. Which in actuality there is not small pieces per say, rather the little ends of the “puzzle pieces” . The tabs that I do not want to break…..pictureSo this is now taped on the scroll saw table just for th...

Commisions #7: pull out trash box #2

07-14-2008 08:37 PM by teenagewoodworker | 16 comments »

hey everyone, over the last couple of days i have been able to get a lot done in terms of milling up the lumber and gluing up panels. i chose sycamore for the trash box because it is a hard wood as opposed to the pine that i was going to use before. there was a sale at the lumberyard on sycamore and it was less per bf than a select 1 board of pine. so the purchase made sense. first i got my lumber and let it sit for awhile and then milled it up. the first picture is of a rough board and ...

Aalto Inspired Tea Cart #3: Refining the laminations and underwater basket weaving

07-13-2008 07:32 PM by bfd | 5 comments »

Did I mention how over my head I am with this project? Well after taking a week off from woodworking between a trip to Vegas and not being able to work in the shop due to the smokey air in the Sacramento area I am back to work. Now that I have the laminations glued up I needed to figure out a way to trim them down to finished width. I intentionally glued the laminations up at 3 1/2” knowing that I needed to yield a 2 1/2” wide leg. This was a challenge since I couldn’t u...

Album Art #2

07-08-2008 05:47 AM by pat | 3 comments »

So far in this series I have finished two of the hopefully ten woodburned album covers. I take any ideas and use most of them. My next project will be a Dragonforce one and then an ACDC one. Hopefully I’ll be able to do more but I’m in a band and The Teenagewoodworker and I haven’t totally figured out when Wood Riffs will air or what we are gonna do. We might do some sort of guitar case Denny said he was gonna make me but anyway. I’ m open to any comments anyone has. ...

07-03-2008 12:21 AM by teenagewoodworker | 13 comments »

so my router table project has come to an end. i got my shipment from Lee Valley today and i am happy to say that everything is completed. first upon getting the 2’ T-track i cut it in half with a jigsaw and a metal cutting blade. then i epoxied the track into place. i used a board of mdf to distribute pressure and my two former table saw wings which are probably around 20 pounds each on top. then i just drilled for and installed the t bolts and put on the knobs. and when the fen...
