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...

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...

well i guess i shall start at the begining, i have a planed piece of maple 60mm wide 9mm thick and about 2ft long its best to work with larger pieces of timber so as not to cut your fingers off working with little fiddley bits so best to stay above 1 foot long.next i rebate a slot along the length of the piece to recieve the base the piece i have for the base is 3mm thich so i pass the side stock over the table saw which i have set to a depth of half the thickness of the side stock i do this ...

Scrolled Wooden Puzzles #3: The Grasshopper

07-28-2008 10:58 PM by Allison | 1 comment »

This is the way I have chosen to cut this out. First to go is the “O”. Leaving me with with the long “H” which is like the backJust a short tiny cut removes the 1st “P”of the double “P’s” Now I only have the “H” left and the “G” and I can cut them any which way I want to.In the next and last of this much too long series I will be bringing in “The Cheater”

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...

Fuming a Small Box With Household Ammonia #1: After Four Days of Exposure

09-18-2014 12:49 AM by Roger Kimmel | 8 comments »

The box hasn’t darkened appreciably over the past two days, so I put in fresh ammonia in a slightly bigger saucer to give it more surface area. Here’s a funny thing. It felt like the box was damp to the touch. The lid just lies in a rabbet in the sides, and the wood had swollen so much that it was jammed in tight! It really has been picking up moisture. I don’t know if this is due to the fuming reaction, or if it is just a consequence of having the box suspended ove...

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...
