Helpful Jigs #2: Two Piece Jig to Make 1" Thick Bent Lamination

01-06-2014 09:51 PM by rhett | 3 comments »

Too cold to spray finish and waiting on blades, so here is a quick blog on a technique to make matching curves for bent laminations. NOTE: The desired final thickness of your lamination is equal to the diameter of the bottom bearing trim bit you use in this method. Blanks for the jig. 4 pieces of 3/4” ply to make a 3” deep jig. Cut and faired 1/4” template is used to get initial curve on a piece of 3/4” ply. Flush trimmed curve is used as bearing reference...

Fatigue Mats

01-23-2011 12:47 AM by WoodArtbyJR | 13 comments »

Not sure if this belongs in a “Review” or “Blog” heading so I’ll place it here. Fatigue mats, you don’t think about them much unless you stand on a hard floor all day (and even then you probably think about them). I purchased a fatigue mat from our beloved Rockler a couple of years ago and loved it. It was sent to me rolled up and took about a year before it would lay flat. Still, working in front of my lath for hours at a time I found that it was a GRE...

These are 3D objects that you can use on your cabinets/Projects although these objects cannot be machined on the router they are very useful in creating a presentation of your project. You also have probably found out that you cannot resize these objects. Well there i...

Clamping a large molding miter

02-26-2013 04:39 PM by Don "Dances with Wood" Butler | 2 comments »

I’ve been making frames from moldings for years, but my usual methods failed to be up for the challenge of mitering three and a half inch wide moldings.Somewhere in the past I had used this method and forgotten it. I just use bits from the scrap bin, a couple of straight pieces and a couple of 45º triangles to make up the blocks clamped onto the moldings. That gives me a place to clamp directly across the miter. This method doesn’t require clamping the moldings to the bench...

Found wood.

09-11-2011 06:15 PM by CJay | 6 comments »

I’ve always enjoyed reusing wood, as well as being cheap it’s a great way to give a new lease of live to wood that would otherwise end up on the fire (or worse; the dump). Anyways, a friend was clearing out a cupboard and gave me the unwanted parts from some blinds she’d bought several years ago. All solid wood, and very clean maple at that. Rather than add them to the winter fuel pile, i had an idea. after cutting away the holes where the string went, i glued th...

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...

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #4: Carcass Installed

08-13-2010 06:44 AM by RonPeters | 4 comments »

Here’s the carcass installed. I oiled it the same as the bench. Sanded it a little to knock off the fuzz. I didn’t finish it all out as this is just a box for storage. Next is to make the door for the left side and drawers for the right The vise is completed. It has about a 3” throat because the dog block thickness is also about 3”. It probably should be closer to the left edge, but I don’t plan to be cutting anything – got a chop saw for that. Mo...

Not just a Miter Jig

12-12-2012 03:05 AM by jumbojack | 0 comments »

I built this miter jig and posted it a month or so ago. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/73645. It works better than I had hoped, but thats not all it does. I needed to cut some dowels all the same length and this little jig came to the rescue. I just set the stop and used the end of the jig as a stop for the saw. Sixteen dowels all the same length. Then I needed to drill some holes in some larger dowels. I brought the forstner bit down and centered in in the jig. Dropped in the 1 1/4” d...
