3D printed dovetail template

70 days ago by nisker | 2 comments »

I’ve been wanting to try my hand at dovetails for a while – and beeing awfully fond of tools, I figured a dovetail template would be a nice thing to have for that purpose. but I also really like the idea about building my own tools and a dovetail template is very simple in design. However im not really sure I can yield my saw with enough precision to make a wooden one yet – allthough buying a dozuki really helped there. So I went with a different approach that gave me ...

Kitchen Shelf: Step By Step #1: The support units

165 days ago by Greg Guarino | 2 comments »

We have more kitchen stuff than fits in our cabinets. We decided that a really large shelf could serve to hold some of the nicer-looking pieces, opening up room for the more utilitarian stuff behind closed doors. This started as a simple, innocent slab of wood on some store-bought brackets, but got waylaid in the design process. :) Here’s the design It’s big, about 94” long by 12” deep. It also incorporates two techniques I haven’t tried before (I’...

Template Cutting Faux Pas

525 days ago by whit | 0 comments »

I’m working on a rigid heddle loom and came across an issue cutting out the sides. To some of you more well-versed in the arts and sciences of template cutting, this is probably a ho-hum tip. For me, it was an “Ah hah!!” moment. I’d taken care to make sure the minimum radius in the template was .5” since that’s the bit I used for the cutout. What I didn’t take into account was the length of the arms on the router table guard/DC that resulted in ...

Cedar Gate Handle #1: Cedar Gate handle - Start to Finish

532 days ago by twobyfour16 | 0 comments »

So, I recently built a new cedar gate & needed some handles. I didn’t want to go out & buy some, so decided to make my own. Inspired by “http://lumberjocks.com/projects/48854” CaptainAhab’s handles, I ended up with:Here’s how I built them:Starting with a lamination of 3 pieces of clear Cedar which I planed down to about 2 1/8” thick:Obviously, I made a little template for the top curves out of 1/4” plywood & cut the top curve with the ban...

My Maloof lowback #1: Its on!

945 days ago by Antti | 6 comments »

After reading Maloof’s book last summer, I ordered the DVD and templates from Scott Morrison, claiming the lowback to be my “winter project”. Now its (actually “they” as I’m making a pair) on the way as I officially have completed the first few steps: Glued the templates on plywood, cut out with a bandsaw and sanded to line: Milled, ripped, ripped to 3 degree angle, cross cut the seats: In fact, after sleeping on it a couple of weeks, went back...

Jigs etc. #4: Snakes and Ladders - Hinge Template Routing Jig

948 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 7 comments »

I’m just going to let the pictures tell the story here. The only things I will say is that the template guide pin must be exactly the same width as the router bit used (6mm in this case) and the minimum hinge pin width is also dictated by the router bit used. This is the test run with a 115mm square x 6mm thick piece of MDF being routed. No, even I don’t trust the actual pieces I am working for a project to the first run with a new jig.The templates were marked out, using a knife,...

Frame Saw Build #3: Template me this, Curve me that.

1042 days ago by PurpLev | 14 comments »

Using my previously made SketchUp model I made a full sizes printed template using the following steps: 1. Setting up a Parallel view: The default view in SketchUp is “Perspective” which allows us to view things in 3D which looks ‘real’ due to the perspective view but for printing we want to be able to see the drawings in 2-D as if they were printed on a flat paper (which is what we about to do). In order to do this you need to go to the menus under “Camera...

Inverted World #3: Cutting Curves

1149 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 7 comments »

So the tools are prepared, now the materials. I would love to have used Bloodwood, not so easily available here, so its Padauk (I’ll watch it darken with age), Sycamore and a small piece of African Blackwood I had left from the Italian Restaurant box. To mark out the pieces I printed off the pattern and cut it up. The marking up of the Blackwood reminded me of when I was a small child, watching my mum marking out patterns for clothes (she was a seamstress). I cut these...

Inverted World #2: Pattern Reduction and Tooling Up

1150 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 13 comments »

Hello again. Lets start with a reminder of what the Inverted World pattern looks like I don’t know if you can see from this but the pattern consists of only 3 (three) different types of piece Labelled here as A, B and C. Both of the B’s in this picture are mirror images of each other.To complete the pattern we need 4 x A ( 2 black, 2 white), 8 x B ( 4 black, 4 white) and 4 x C ( 2 black, 2 white).You should also be able to make out from the first picture that if you ...
