Bent Wood Rings on instructables.com

08-21-2012 02:16 AM by RussInMichigan | 2 comments »

Recently, I’ve noticed several lumberjocks asking about making bent wood rings for the fingers. Here is a link to a nice tutorial on doing just that, making bent wood rings. www.instructables.com/id/Bent-Wood-Rings The instructor includes a section on epoxy inlays, too. The comments there are also enlightening as several experienced bent wood ring makers shared some of their knowledge and expertise.

Sharpening chisels—forget weaker micro bevels

01-29-2012 11:14 PM by Paul Sellers | 126 comments »

Sharpening chisels—forget weaker micro bevels Controversial though it may seem, and though adopting micro-bevel methods for sharpening chisels may seem to make sense, a freehand convex bevel actually gives exactly the same sharpness as any micro-bevel method, but takes only a fraction of the time to develop. A convex bevel keeps its edge longer, is stronger than most other bevels and needs no special equipment beyond a pair of hands. Establishing the skill to sharpen the convex camber ...

Inside-Out Ornament Tutorial #1: How to Make an Inside-Out Ornament

01-10-2012 12:32 AM by Donna Menke | 6 comments »

I have wanted to try to make one of these ornaments ever since I first saw them. They are so interesting, and everyone asks- “how did you do that”? I had trouble understanding a lot of the how-to descriptions, and even the videos were hard to follow. I found this one tutorial that I thought was good, and after about the 10th read-through I thought I’d grasped the concept.” http://www.ptwoodturners.org/Tips%20and%20Handouts/INSIDE-OUT.pdfOne of the first things I did wa...

Asian Cabinet #3: Two... Three Birds, one Stone

10-16-2010 09:33 PM by Brian Havens | 7 comments »

Turned out that the jig I used to cut the mortise faces on the leg solved a more general problem, which allowed me to use the same jig for several other tasks.

Lathe Projects #1: Woodturning - Slim Vase

07-20-2010 02:33 PM by David Craig | 6 comments »

Been awhile since I had shop time. The last three weeks have been pretty much on call and vacation with the kids so it feels good to get back to work on some things. As I progress on the lathe, I have been wanting to experiment with more delicate turnings. Much of my work has been more heavy handed so far and I wanted to work with curves, thinner walls, and trickier hollowing. I had a small log I discovered that had been sitting in the basement since the beginning of time so I mounted it a...

Testing Creative Commons Licensing code on LJ Blogs...

05-09-2010 05:58 PM by Mark Whitsitt | 19 comments »

Ok, so I’m not typically litigious, and I’m happy to share images of the things I work on, but lately, I’m finding that covering my @$$ legally makes more and more sense… (it hasn’t been a friendly business year…) So, I’m going to start licensing my images using the Creative Commons license, and here I’m testing HTML code generated by www.imagecodr.org Here’s a image of a drawing I made last night to visualize cutting an isosceles/eq...

techniques #5: Greasemonkey script: Flickr LumberJockifier

03-30-2010 11:48 AM by Gary Fixler | 5 comments »

Something that’s always important to me is efficiency. I’m a weird mix of lazy and hardworking. I’ll spend 10 hours coding up something that will save me days of work later, mostly because I get bored of having to do the same steps over and over again. I post a lot of pictures here on LumberJocks, and my method is usually to pop off a tab with Flickr in it, move that new window to a separate monitor, then in my new post back in the first window type !()!: on its own line whe...

Limbert Lamp Table - Stickley #240 #9: Finish Line

10-25-2009 09:40 PM by CaptainSkully | 7 comments »

I finally had a day to work on our stuff. With a little urging from my girlfriend to finish the fumed table sitting in our dining room, I bit the bullet and gave it a good shellacing. This was my first time using shellac. It’s pretty difficult to work with, as it dries fast and leave a build-up. I cut the Zinser Amber in half with denatured alcohol, and grabbed a beer for myself (I thought it only fair), and went to town on it. It gave it a nice, rich look. When that dried, I ...
