Well yes, my twin brother got a painted egg… I had to wait until the middle of the night…I guess you’ve never seen a rabbit painting an egg on a pole lathe, but now we know they do! We just want to wish everybody:Boa Páscoa, Nice Easter, Schöne Ostern, Belle PâquesBuena Pascua, Bella Pasqua, Güzel Paskalya! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJsmFnmf3w0
As one can see, by all the projects I have posted lately, I am almost ready for my first craft show. However after all the cuttine of various projects I am wondering if the is a more productive method of scrollsaw cutting. YES, I know stack is the first and only method I know about. If you are able to stack cut three projects at the same time then I think I reach a productivity breakeven popint. However it is not possible with all of the patterns I cut. Second, the seasoned knowledge of...
I completed work on the jointer today and got it running. I had the camera rolling as I did it and got that all packaged up and loaded. I hope you like the conclusion of this small series on my jointer. It takes a lot of time to make them, but it is fun time. I am enjoying this combination of hobbies. Thanks for watching! https://youtu.be/i4-7iqLnnxY
So… Being a programmer, and having a few spare hours at work I decided to create a simple dovetail calculator tool using Microsoft Excel (and VBA coding) – here is my first version of this: Office 2010 Excel Document here: https://www.box.com/s/s0cdmjj4b3cj9bjsg1cvOffice 2003 Excel Document here: https://www.box.com/s/g6q3g92nsgebf0tkkzin When I have more free time, I am thinking of having the measurements display on the screen, so you could print out the results.

I kind of stumbled on this method by accident.I haven’t tested it on hardwood but your big box soft wood lumber works perfectly.. Tools needed. Stanley No. 95 or equivalent (veritas or LN)Block plane or smoothing plane set for thin shavings. I usually take 8-12 passes with the 95 each direction,This is usually enough to get rid of that rounded edge you getWith big box store construction grade lumber. But wait! I just changed directions against the grain!Doesn’t matter...
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...
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...
A quick video of me making an egg cup holder, enjoy!
