I know that most of you on LJ deals with inches’ but I’m all into mm so everything below is in mm, sorry for this.

Do you have bumps on your surface?

09-16-2011 09:00 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 9 comments »

This is a very short video of how I apply polyurethane on my projects to get them bump free and streak free. It has taken practice over the few years of woodworking. I used to have those bumps all over my projects and you could definetly see them in the light. I now have it to where those little bumps are gone. As always, comments are welcome (we all need them, they help us learn). Thanks for viewing.

Inversions cutting board tutorial

09-15-2011 03:50 PM by jadams | 11 comments »

In response to some questions about how this pattern is made… I’m not sure if this is the only method, but here’s how I did it. Here’s the original project I posted: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/53452 Hint: When you look at the board, long ways going left to right, every row is a different size, but every group of 2 rows are all the same size! Solution: First you rip strips like you would for a regular end grain board, but in a progression of widths from l...

The sides of the knife blocks consist of 5 pieces of bookmatched walnut, maple and cherry 3/8” thick and 13 1/2” long which was determined by the length of the longest knife blade .I sized the 4/4” rough lumber to pieces that are 5 1/4” wide x 15” long and jointed one edge and one face and set the bandsaw up for resawing.Once all of the resawing is done,a few trips through the planer gets everything to 3/8.” Both block sides consists of 2 walnut, 2 maple ...

TV Stand #7: Cauls, jigs, molding and doors

09-15-2011 05:20 AM by Angela | 4 comments »

Bottom MoldingI cut a long piece of the African mahogany 3” wide. I original use ¾” but didn’t like the way it looked so I planed it down to 5/8”. I ran it through my router table using a Freud Roman Ogee router bit # 38362. I first cut the front piece. I used the same angles that I used on the main case. After cutting the side angles, the pieces didn’t fit based on the angles I cut them. When I glued the sides of the main case together the angles came out different from wha...

Custom Knife Blocks #1: Let The Fun Begin

09-15-2011 03:38 AM by wdkits1 | 4 comments »

Hi everyoneAs some of you may know I got a sizable commission for producing some custom knife blocks for a client that will give them as Christmas gifts to their best customers. When I had originally talked with the client they had wanted to order as many as 40 of these blocks but after discussing their budget we settled on doing 25 which considering the deadline for delivery didn’t hurt my feelings. The blocks are made from Walnut, Maple and Cherry and the style was something that t...

It seems like everyone these days are making videos of things, so I decided to do one as well. It is very simple, but it is my first one. I have included the degrees you cut the base at (which seems to be a common question). Enjoy it!

Vintage Tool Rehab Projects #4: Rehabbing a #18 Stanley Standard-Angle Block Plane

09-08-2011 06:56 PM by Brad | 8 comments »

I have a late-model Stanley #60 ½ low-angle block plane, a hand-me-down from my dad. It’s tuned perfectly and I like it, but there are times when it feels a bit small in my hands. So I’ve had my eye out for a Stanley knuckle block plane. You know, the ones with the cool rounded top gleaming from a nickel coating? The #18 Stanley block plane also seats the iron at a standard angle, and I wanted one to complement my low-angle model. So when a #18 caught me eye recently at a garag...
