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...

Calling all Hand Plane Restoration Experts

06-15-2013 12:10 PM by DouginVa | 5 comments »

This will be my first go at restoring a wooden bodied hand plane. In the pics you’ll see it’s an older Stanley wooden bodied plane that is rusted up pretty bad. I can handle the rust issue with electrolysis like I’ve done many times before. As I’m typing this there are parts in the bath and last night I did the iron/blade….which is pitted pretty bad. But what concerns me are the checks in the wooden body and layers of gunk built up on the wood. In your...

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 45ยบ 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...

birdsmouth router bits

01-07-2015 12:35 AM by haskins | 5 comments »

I recently discovered on YouTube these bits that are called birds mouth router bits. They make 6,8,12 sided boxes by cutting a notch of a certain angle in the board down its length. Once routed, the board is cut to length dependent on the shapes diameter. The interlock makes glueing and clamping incredibly easy. I got a set of three for $40

Ribbons in Cutting Boards

07-27-2014 02:52 PM by prospector45 | 9 comments »

Several years ago I saw this ribbon design at segmenting.biz/inlayexample. I started by selecting the body of the design. In this case, padauk, yellow heart, aand hickory for three boards. Then I laminated the “ribbons” Then I cut 2” holes in the boards that make up the body of the design. The problem for a flat boarder(cutting board) was how to create the plugs without a center hole. The first idea was wood turning but this would require a massive square of exotic wood...

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...

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...
