My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #24: Finished 3 Frames, Wrote Some Instructions, and Made Some Pizza :P

06-27-2010 01:14 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be one of those days where the clock must have been spinning double-time. It seemed I got an early enough start, but before long the sun was setting and it was over. It is amazing how some days do that. It just seems that time is not always my friend. Besides the normal Saturday ‘chores’ of cleaning the cat box, kitchen and bathroom and doing some food shopping, I had the most intense craving for Chicago-style pizza. Now Nova Scotia has some of the be...

Bathroom Vanity Mirror #9: Drawboring

06-26-2010 10:02 PM by mpmitche | 0 comments »

I am so glad I read Chris Schwarz’s article Drawboring Resurected. I used that technique to assemble my mortise and tennon mirror frame today. I started out by making a doweling plate from scrap I had laying around. It has a large hole in the center that was already there and four new holes 1/2”, 3/8”, 1/4”, and 3/16”. After this I think I will add a 7/16” hole. I widdled some rough pegs and then drove them through the 1/2” followed by the 3/8...

The Process of Segmented Woodturning

06-22-2010 01:11 AM by Bob Simmons | 7 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...

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...
