Yes, you did read it right.This Youtube video shows how to do just that.Not that I would do this but I have a lathe. If you don’t have a lathe it might be worth a try.Anyway it is a bit of genius and there is absolutely nothing like a new jigFull marks to this bloke, Izzy Swan, for effort.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EHRhh11rWs.
I spent this Sunday just milling around in the shop, finally facing up to the rest of the slab of Bubinga that was bought last February…The slab was about 14” wide to begin with… I had begun by slicing it roughly in half to make it more manageable and also to gather some experience with the new Band Saw and Planer; Experience, that was sorely needed!When all was said and done, there was quite a little pile of “mistake” wood… Of course I’ll find use...
a journey in shaper cutter, please come for the ride, stay for the 411 #1: An educational journey in shaper cutters, teachers & professors needed to take the reins.
I have over the past few weeks been able to start taking some overstock merchandise, merchandise that the customer either forgot about or didn’ t have the funds to pay after the customer used the companies sharpening service. Some of the blades, router bits and some shaper bits , I will be keeping for my self but, to be albe to buy more I have to sale items I don’t normally use or if there is way more of an item or group of items than I can use myself. This is one of those time. ...
I bought and rebuilt a 1949 Delta Cabinet Saw for my shop, but it is a little big for small projects, so I decidedto redo my Delta 8” tablesaw for smaller projects. Solid table saw extension for a Delta 8” saw are not easilyfound, but I had an old Atlas 8” table saw I got free with an open style extension that after I drilled a coupleof holes bolted right up to my Delta. These older saws were not made for dust collection, so I cut a few pieces of masonite and made a ...
What started as a leaking kitchen faucet has turned in to a kitchen remodel. However, I convinced my wife that before tearing up the kitchen, we should build a buffet in the dining room. If all goes well, then we will tackle the kitchen next year. We have been living in this house since July 1987. It has been paid for for several years and all of our kids are grown so it is just me and the missus. The cabinets are vintage 1983 oak but their time has come and gone. I don’t like the...
Howdy, Not much time for woodshop lately but I have been able to put a little time in here and there. Today was about 4 hours. Here is where I’m at. I did some hand planning to get it in earshot range. I used a stiff metal yardstick like a scree to reveal high spots. Len – listen up please. I grabbed a card scraper and took down some of the ridges left by the planning. I know I need to keep working on the scraper edge. I ended up using the ROS after my hands got tired...
Howdy, I added all of my little U-Turns to the top and here is where I start this Blog. If you have any disparities in your measurements, Here is where they make an appearance. I have to add a 4 inch long piece of Curly Maple here but it’s wider than one inch because the rest of my strips were less than one inch wide. I cut a piece to length then I used a series of stopblocks and clamps to shave it to the exact width. Easy Glue up around all four corners. Once I got back to...
Hey everybody, I started a forum topic to get some ideas for Christmas gifts this year. I decided to try my hand at making some 3D Tumbling Block Cutting Boards like this one by lanwater. I found a blog by degoose with a very good write up on the process. I have never blogged about anything before so I thought this would be a good project to start with. So I hope you guys will enjoy this. Thanks, Jayson

Howdy, I thought I’d be a little more detailed about my Southwest tables with this blog. Lessons learned, Lessons still learning. Yep. You might find it handy. What I don’t have is a thickness planner, a workbench or a joiner. Great fun huh? Here is the first one in progress. Still haven’t added shellac up to this point. For starters, I built up a good sturdy substrate. I used 1, 2 foot by 4 foot piece of birch 1/2 inch plywood from Home Depot. I think it came ...
