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...

Custom Knife Blocks #2: The Sides

09-15-2011 03:34 PM by wdkits1 | 2 comments »

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...

How to make a wine bottle holder that can balance.

09-10-2011 12:23 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 9 comments »

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...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18W0C8sSFzg For those who asked for a pictorial / video blog on restoring a fishing rod…..for the purpose of expediting my education in video editing / posting etc… I have used the myrtle rod handle and foregrip previously posted in my projects. I doubted that many of you would be enthralled by my turning of the handle or fore grip..pretty straightforward stuff there… just turn to length and diameter desired…to a depth in the foregrip ...

Foldable Router Table #1: The Idea

09-07-2011 01:59 AM by abadr | 1 comment »

Even though I have a decent size garage/shop, all tools need to be tucked away neatly since the space is used for metal working, photography, working on cars and of course parking. So space hogging fixed tools are avoided whenever possible. The idea for this router table is to take an inexpensive foldable table and replace the top with a thick, straight and strong MDF top for routing. I will then be able to collapse the table and stow it next to a wall taking little space. The original top...

Woven basket on the Scroll Saw

09-06-2011 08:22 AM by Leldon | 26 comments »

Hi all, I wanted to make this blog in order to show the process I use to make the woven basket that is shown in my projects. This will be my first blog, so bar with me, please! I didn’t come up with this concept of making these baskets, but after making 30 or so I feel I can make them better than the directions the author provided. These plans are available from Scroller Ltd. These are awesome baskets to make. And I sell them for a nice profit considering you are only using tw...
