Second, the seasoned knowledge of...

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

I built this miter jig and posted it a month or so ago. 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...

Rope Carvings

03-24-2015 06:09 PM by Luke Addington | 2 comments »

I prepared some rope samples a few weeks ago for a client meeting. Here’s the process I used: Layout Part I. Video for Part I of the layout process. I mark the centers of the square portions at either end of the turning. I line my ruler up with the two points and bend it down slightly so it touches the column. Then I mark a short center line on the column itself. I do that on all four sides. Then I take some painters tape and line up the centers the same way I did with the ruler, ...

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).
