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...

Cutting pieces of Coral

08-17-2012 12:49 AM by DouginVa | 6 comments »

Does anybody have experience in using coral (from the ocean) in furniture or wood projects? I am making a box for my brother and his wife as a thank you for letting me stay at their home in Hawaii. I collected a few pieces of coral from the beach and had an idea to use it as a lid pull/knob for the box lid. I though I’d cut the piece I wanted, grind the bottom flat, drill a small hole in it’s bottom and secure it to the lid with a small screw. But I don’t know how it w...

Keeping up with your glasses

07-11-2015 11:32 PM by poospleasures | 8 comments »

I have to use reading glasses for many tasks in the shop. I do not wear them except for close up stuff or if the area is a little dark, they were always somewhere out of reach as all my shirts do not have pockets. Now the idea. Use two rare earth magnets one inside and one out side located about where the pocket would be. These will hold your glasses very securely and will catch and hold them if you just get them close. Of course the stems or other parts must be metal which will attract a ma...

Adirondack Chairs #1: Halfway into the White Oak version

09-17-2013 12:16 AM by Jacob C. Heffelfinger | 1 comment »

This is the first entry in this series, but I’m already halfway into the White Oak version of my Rockler Adirondack chair. I’m also building a Western Red Cedar version, but haven’t started dimensioning the boards yet. I’m starting the blog at this point in the project, because 1. I wasn’t a member of LJ before starting the project and 2. I need to get my thoughts down about what I’ve learned so far, because this is really my first TRUE hardwood project...

Vector patterns and modifying them for double bevel cutting

04-01-2014 10:17 PM by jfk4032 | 2 comments »

It was requested on another forum for me to explain how I capture my intarsia patterns digitally, create vector artwork, then modify that artwork for accurate double bevel cutting…so here it is for my LJ friends: I’ll try to explain the techniques I’ve developed for digitizing my patterns and using that pattern to expand the artwork for accurate double bevel cutting. Keep in mind, I just started intarsia less than 2 years ago, only have 7 projects under my belt and only tried double ...

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...

Benchtop Work Holding - Handscrew Clamp Modification

01-20-2015 12:38 AM by nashley | 2 comments »

This will be my first post on lumberjocks so I thought I would start with something simple. I’m in the process of gearing up to make a set of dining chairs and was looking for a way to secure work to the top of my bench. I drilled some thru holes in the top of my bench that will allow the clamps to be oriented towards the front or towards the side. I’ve seen bar and pipe clamps used this way but I don’t think I’ve seen handscrew clamps used this way. The bottom jaw ...
