Double Dovetail Box #4: Cutting The Remaining Dovetails

1640 days ago by Don | 4 comments »

I didn’t quite get the box assembled on Sunday but I was close. Next step after gluing the corners is to cut the remaining half blind dovetail joints. I thought I was going to have to do a second setup on my jig to cut these like I had to on my Spalted Mango Box but I didn’t. On this box I’m reversing the joints end for end rather than doing a mirror image. Half blind dovetails are actually always reversed end for end like this when cut on an Omnijig and probobly on most ...

If interested please post or send me a PM and I will try and get it all organized again. I know there are several LJ’s in the valley and others here getting away from th...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #16: Dressing a slab.

1641 days ago by degoose | 11 comments »

Here is a few short videos of the Torque Workcentre making light work of dressing a slab of Eucalyptus.. . . This slab was fairly hard and around 16 inches by 30 inches..even though this is a small slab by any standard the principle is the same and as you can see it only takes minutes.. so if the slab were bigger it would still not take any great amount of time to flatten and smooth it…

Eye Carving Techniques

1643 days ago by Eli Adamit | 4 comments »

I was asked about carving eyes in my last project shown http://lumberjocks.com/projects/26334 and answered with a small lesson, It was after most of the members who are interested see already the project and the comment. I assume that more people are interested in this subject so I send it in the blog.I was asked: “On the first side shown, the side with just the head, how did you do the eyes, if you don’t mind sharing. Mostly on carved eyes, I see them carved inward to use shadow to d...

Carved Coffee Table II #1: Making the apron profile

1650 days ago by Alan Young | 1 comment »

I am building a coffee table that is based on a piece I built in 2007. The first table has a solid top made from Sapelle and a base where the apron and legs were from Mahogany. The new table will have the same general shape-in all sections-top, apron and legs. The changes will include, walnut for the legs and apron, and a top that is veneered with inlayed designs. The carving’s on the legs and aprons will be different too. I began taking pictures of this second table when I was ...

Dovetail Pen Turning #4: Success!!

1652 days ago by SNSpencer | 4 comments »

Dovetail Pen Progress Success!! It took a few more tries but I finally have a set of pen blanks worth of being assembled into a final writing instrument. Some more issues that I have run into along the way are: Working with Padauk and CA glue – I found that when I was applying the CA glue to the blanks to stabilize the chipout that the glue would pick up the color from the Padauk. This in effect became a “stain” that would penetrate the Maple and start to turn it pink. I solved this ...
