Tumbling block cutting board techniques, lessons learned and tips for cutting and assembly

01-13-2014 02:32 PM by jfk4032 | 8 comments »

After looking through some other blogs here on LJ and watching some Youtube videos I thought that the tumbling block cutting board was something that looked challenging, cool and something I wanted to try. I learned some good ideas from these other blogs and wanted to share some of my experiences having now made three of these, my setbacks and discoveries to better produce these tumbling block patterns. I purchased a Wixey digital angle gauge as it looked like you really needed to be accu...

Education and torment #2: Red Oak Sandpaper Storage cabinet

01-12-2014 06:44 PM by GeneR | 3 comments »

This cabinet is made from leftover red oak, Luan, birch plywood and plexiglass that I had in my shop. It is approximately 17”T x 7 1/2”W x 6” deep. I would have liked to make it a little taller to handle a couple more shelves and slightly deeper to have been able to recess the back panel. The Box I first sent the oak through the joiner to ensure I had 1 flat square edge. I then cut the board to the proper widths on my table saw then to final lengths on the Miter...

Beall Polishing System #2: Sanding mops

01-03-2014 06:21 AM by PASs | 6 comments »

Since the motor mandrel with the Beall system takes a 3/8” bolt I’ve made several sanding mops.First was a 320 grit for finish sanding in general. That worked well enough so I made a couple in 220 grit, a thick one and a thin one. This past week I started making a mass production of challenge coin holders and decided I needed to up the game on the sanding mop. I wanted to sand the 2 1/2 inch wide holders in one pass. So I needed a sanding mop at least 3 inches wide. I looked...

Restoring An Old Butcher Block

12-28-2013 01:31 PM by JayG46 | 3 comments »

I’m home for Christmas and naturally, my mom gave me a project to keep me busy. Since it was woodworking related, I was more than happy to take it on. About thirty years ago, my parents bought a maple butcher block from a restaurant supply store. It has been a part of their kitchen ever since and has held up pretty well, all things considered. But over time, it has become a little grimy it was definitely time for a serious refinishing. We don’t have a powered sander here, so...

Education and torment #1: Canary wood Box

12-15-2013 06:36 PM by GeneR | 0 comments »

The box is 4” square and made from canary wood and walnut, with a birdseye maple and walnut top. This started as an idea for the wifes Christmas present and grew to a little monster. I first decided on the box size being determined buy the length and thickness of the piece of canary wood. the piece was about 28 in long 4 1/2” wide and 1/2” thick so 4” square gave me some screw up room. At this time I figured I would use a 1/4” piece of plywood for the bo...

Making a Single Slab Table

12-15-2013 06:30 AM by Odysseus | 4 comments »

Here’s a photo story of how a beautiful sapele slab dining table came to be… I anxiously awaited my flawless sapele slab from a top-dollar dealer… How NOT to palletize a very expensive slab. The 60 inch by 10 foot sapele slab arrived in less than the perfect shape promised. Here it is unwrapped, beautiful, but problematic… Hmm… I would say that’s cupped and sawn pretty bad. Yikes! Not the 12/4 promised. I decided to sand this board rath...

Doll Baby Crib Project #1: Doll baby Bed

12-10-2013 12:26 AM by Dan Tindall | 0 comments »

So I’ve been looking for a project that I could use as a gift for my Granddaughter (almost 2) and this month’s Wood Magazine had it right there between their pages. A Doll Baby bed project seems exactly what I was looking for and would fit in with time that I have available.It also doesn’t hurt that I had almost all of the materials sitting in my cut off bin! So, I am now about 50% complete with this project and due to a couple of the parts that need to be made, I d...

oak box #10: coat of wet finish

12-06-2013 03:15 AM by Dan'um Style | 6 comments »

Sanded this one to 150 grit and figured a good wet coat of lacquer might bring out the grain a bit. The rosewood and turquoise together for the photo. Will glue last. The turquoise is from eBay China. Fun stuff.
