Jigs #3: Large Curve Jig for ~15' Radius

01-05-2015 04:42 PM by keith204 | 0 comments »

Drawing a line, rough-sawing and sanding a curve wasn’t good enough, and I really wanted to make a good curve with a nice square edge. Behold, the complex router template contraption that worked perfect. Surely there was an easier way to go about this; if you have ideas about alternatives, let me know in the comments! These screws were to prevent flexing. Before routing, I added a few dabs of hot glue to the backside of the curved strip, which I think made the screws poi...

Every year in Mid January I go to this little Fiber arts show and vend. I make Crochet hooks, Yarn bowls and a bunch of other stuff as well.One of the things I make is called an Inkle Loom. They are used to weave long straps for a number of uses, Google it you’ll get the idea.The version I make has 10 pegs on it and I am currently building 3 of them. Since driving an hour and a half to pick up 5/8 Oak dowel rod didn’t fit into my schedule I decided to turn the dowels. Thirty piece...

Format your excel formulas to inches and fractions

12-07-2014 11:52 AM by ScottM1 | 8 comments »

Have you ever had the result of a formula in excel to return something like 17.3333 then tried to format that cell to fractions up to two digits?

In this video I will demonstrate how you can use the MROUND function to accomplish this. So check it out and let me know what you think. Here is the link. http://youtu.be/Jfy_lglzNhA

Tuning up my new old unisaw #1: Routing cast iron

12-01-2014 06:26 AM by TheFridge | 9 comments »

So I traded a .270 weatherby and 300$ for an old rockwell unisaw that was just refurbished by its previous owner. I got it dialed in when I discovered the top was warped when I went to cut some tenons to test it out. Needless to say, this was a big problem. A machine shop wanted 400$ to surface grind .010 off, but even then the heat could still warp it. There were also no shop with a Blanchard grinder from laffayette to houma to New Orleans with the capacity to do it, that were willing...

The Rules of Work

11-23-2014 03:30 AM by Alan | 2 comments »

This is just a list of rules that I have either come across or thought of for myself that I need to keep in mind at all times when (trying to) do fine woodworking. This list is mostly for my own reference, and in no way to be considered exhaustive, but rather to be added to and updated as I continue to learn. If you fine folks reading it have suggestions to add, or strongly disagree with something I have on here, feel free to leave a comment! I’m here to learn. 1. Keep grain orie...
