Inlay Tools #4: Slicing Gauge

07-13-2009 04:22 PM by Jon3 | 2 comments »

With my straight line cutter complete, I moved on to the slicing gauge. This tool, along with a slicing board (which is really just a board with a lip to hold the inlay material up against) allows you to cut (a ripping action) long thin strips from your inlay sheet stock. This is the first part of making the inlay material itself. Here is my ‘raw materials’ shot. I went with a curly spalted maple body, and a Sipo cutter support bar left over from the previous tool’s offcuts....

On the Workbench #3: Porter Cable Bandsaw Modification - Adding a Work Light

11-09-2014 05:36 AM by ontheworkbench | 2 comments »

I posted a while back about my 14” bandsaw from Porter Cable. It has been a great addition to the shop, but I just could not stop wondering why there was not a work light built into the saw. Other band saws have them, and other Porter Cable products have a work light, so they clearly have the parts available to make it happen. So I decided to resolve this once and for all, and ordered a replacement lamp fixture for a PC bench grinder and then wire it into my my band saw so it would not ...

this artisan house #2: more from the artisan kitchen

01-01-2007 02:42 AM by scottb | 2 comments »

The two spurtles I made last fall in a woodturning class. The top one is oak the bottom is cherry. Both are finished with walnut oil, and so far remain unused. I’ve only seen Alton Brown over on the Food Network use one to make oatmeal, or perhaps it was haggis. I just don’t seem to make enough of either to neccessitate two spurtles! The turner, my brother-in-law liberated from a broken cutting board. Maple. I posted this entry pretty much verbatim over at wordpress (oh ...

Roubo Inspired Bench #2: Enjoying the winter months with my Beech!

05-25-2013 02:45 PM by jusfine | 2 comments »

I have extended the length of the base to make room for more drawers, and also the length of the top to 96” instead of the WW planned 87” since my material was 10’ long and there seemed to be thought at the time that it would be better suited for what I do… After a lot of planing and thicknessing (those pieces are really awkward and heavy after awhile) I was ready to start with the glue-ups of the top sections. Most of the beech pieces I had were between 6&#...

Backsaw Project #1: Getting Some Special Wood

01-27-2011 03:02 PM by pastorglen | 2 comments »

A few weeks ago I decided I wanted to build another backsaw. (Here’s a picture of my first backsaw project.) The saw that I wanted to duplicate is a Disston No. 77 that was my grandfather’s and perhaps even my great grandfather’s. My dad told me about it one day when I was tossing around the idea of a backsaw project. He said that my grandpa kept the Disston No. 77 (you’ll love this) in the barn to remove horns from the cows. It made me sick. I was sure the saw w...

Tool study #3: "Buck Rogers" planes from Millers Falls - Part 1

09-27-2013 12:27 PM by toolmike | 2 comments »

Streamline moderne is a type of Art Deco architecture that emerged in the mid 1930s and lasted more than two decades. It emphasized curving forms, and moved beyond architecture into industrial design, and even tool design. Millers Falls developed a line of tools in the post-WWII years which were heavy influenced by streamline modern – and symbolic of the 1950s “atomic era”. It is defined by tools such as the No.100A automatic push drill, the No.104 geared hand drill, and the...
