THE DESIGN This is the design where it has started. At first, I thought it was difficult due to complicated angles. but what I realized later there were only two angles that will be cut namely: 22.5 deg and 45 deg cut. The 45 degree is only used when the star in the middle is to be done. THECONSTRUCTION So I started with making the stripes. I glued 4 pcs of stacks that I already prepared in making the coaster. Selecting the 4 colors: green (not know wood), black (kamagong), bro...
I call any taper that cannot be accurately cut on the table saw a micro taper. Usually anything under 1 degree. The taper I needed to cut was 0.2 degrees, so the only tool for the job was the jointer. The process was pretty simple. I needed to taper 1/16” over an 18-inch length. I made a 1/16” spacer and raised my jointer to a 1/16” cut. I placed one end of the panel on the spacer and ran the panel through the jointer. As the front edge of the panel hits the knives, t...

2016 Project - Expand the Woodworking Shop #1: 2016 Project - Expand the Woodworking Shop in NE Ohio and Make it Dustless
Greetings… First… if you happen to be in NE Ohio, I have a MeetUp Group for Woodworkers in NE Ohio – see below I’m new to Lumberjocks in the past few years… but I was a member several years ago under some unknown ID and some unknown email account. I’ve been woodworking for 30+ years. Professionally, I’m an Engineer and Engineering Consultant and Engineering Project Manager. I have no Woodworking projects planned for 2016… other than t...
Took a break from working this weekend—cool project at my day job—to go to a series of demos/classes at my ( local? ) Rockler Store in Tukwila, WA. I guess local is in the eyes of the beholder; Its about 50 miles away. I had put a reminder in my cellphone calendar several months ago, but only had it alert me “the day of” not the prior day. Fortunately I’m an early riser. Off I went. They had two great demos. Turning and Making Raised Panels. I was really ...
A very quick tip. View on YouTube
Now that the carcass for the tables are just about complete, I set out to build the doors. First, I re-saw some cherry to 1/32” for the layers of the panel. I make a form and then using bendable plywood and the veneer, they go into the vacuum bag to make the curved doors. Then a skin of quilted cherry veneer goes on the front and back of the doors. This was a lot of fun, and I hope I don’t bore you by showing the whole process. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! ...
This is the start of a build for an end table. It will have curved front doors, a curved drawer, and the doors and drawer will have a book matched veneer. In this video, I start by pattern routing the front pieces, and then work on the case construction and the solid cherry book matched side panels. The case is put together with all mortise and tenon joinery, and even a few blind dovetails. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To keep up with what I’ve got going on in...
In today’s modern day, one of the most important tools any wood worker has to have is a reference sourse, I found over the years the internet has been a great tool for this. Whether I am looking for plans to build something or shopping for new tools, to researching how to do something, Then one day I stumbled across this site. I love this site. It is a great source for inspiration, asking questions from other wood workers and posting your own projects. I have seen a lot of creativity on...
