Routing Inlays #1: TWO CELTIC PATTERNS SIMPLIFIED

04-07-2010 04:20 AM by Maclegno | 14 comments »

INTRODUCTION.. When I started experimenting with using my router for inlays I thought only in the context of straight lines since that was what routers did best. Unfortunately my tastes in designs included Celtic Art especially Knot-work which is mostly curves. These would obviously need some sort of template to guide the router. A cursory inspection of a typical Celtic Knot suggests that they are too complex for a simple template. However a closer examination and study convinced me that s...

Bandsaw Walking Stick

04-04-2010 03:33 AM by wdkits1 | 16 comments »

LOML wanted me to make her a new walking stick. Had to be a minimum of 44” long but my lathe can only take stock 40” plus she wanted it made from a couple of different woods and it had to taper from 1 1/4”- 1”.Using what I had learned from making my pen blank jig I went ahead and made a new jig for making round blanks using my bandsaw. The jig had to be capable of holding the blank securely on the centers but at the same time allowing the blank to be rotated as it was...

"Carving Acanthus Leaves into, Lathed Fluted Columns"

04-01-2010 03:44 PM by Dennis Zongker | 37 comments »

There are 8 fluted columns to this bedroom set. The columns were turned on our “Legacy” Ornamental Milling Machine, by one of our shop craftsman, Dennis Nygard. I’m carving the 64 acanthus leaf’s by hand with “Pfeil” carving knifes and a small brass mallet. It’s easer to cut the solid cherry by lightly taping with a small mallet. Each leaf takes about 3 hours per leaf. Plus set up time and drawing time, which takes about 2 hours. So, each spindl...

Don't have a jointer?

04-01-2010 02:37 AM by HighRockWoodworking | 14 comments »

How to get a straight edge on a rough cut board that has irregular sides without a jointer. I don’t have the space in my shop for all of the tools to make everyday task easy. My shop is in my garage and just not enough room for a jointer. For myself it works out most of the time because I plane and joint most of the boards for a project in my families shop up in north Carolina that I visit about once a month. But what do you do if you need a board right now? Well there are a few differe...
