Using the Dadowiz for sturdy shelves

11-07-2010 05:18 PM by Bob #2 | 7 comments »

One of the most difficult operations in my shop has been lining up dadoes consistently through two boards.The most,common operation for this is to make book shelves that must bear considerable weight without warping.The example shown here shows how I would go about ensuring my accuracy and controlling the depth of cut using a device called Dadowiz. for more information on this technique please see my bloghere:http://mywoodadventures.blogspot.com/2010/11/dowelmax-for-routered-dados.html

Wolf's Tooth Banding...a Two for One

11-02-2010 09:03 PM by Bob Simmons | 3 comments »

“It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.” .....Muhammad Ali, Heavyweight boxing champ…1942 - One of the benefits of creating “Wolf’s Tooth” wood inlay bandings is that you actually get two bandings for the effort of one. What do I mean by this? When the initial cuts from the laminated stock are made on the table saw using the dedicated miter saw we flip th...

Making a Tumbling Block Cribbage Board

11-01-2010 10:44 PM by WoodMosaics | 22 comments »

I will start this blog the same way I started the one on making a Lazy Susan. Now before I get started on this little demonstration of how I do it, let me caution you on a couple things. IF you try anything like this, take the plate that your saw blade comes up through and close that hole completely up with a thin piece of wood. Make sure it is even with the top, with no gaps and no lips to catch the pieces. You want it smooth. Then with a “Hollow ground plywood blade” come up from the bot...

Lincoln Log Jig

10-26-2010 04:22 AM by mikeho | 6 comments »

I have had quite a few requests on how the lincoln log jig works, I will give it a shot at explaining it.First I rip the logs to 23/32 square and then take them to the router table and using a roundover bitround the edges. Next set the jig stops to the far left setting (right hole in jig) and cut the short and long logs to length. Next move the stops to the right setting (left hole in the jig) and cut the dados setting the 3/4 in dado blade to 1/8 above the sled. Next I take a few of ...

Your electronics will thank you

10-25-2010 03:12 PM by Kenshu | 6 comments »

I have been reading blogs for a couple of years now and even though I work in I.T. and am an Internet savvy individual I have never made a blog post. I don’t know why I suppose I just didn’t feel I had much to offer that wasn’t already being covered by someone else who probably knew more than I did. Now you may be wondering what the title of this post has to do with my lack of experience in blogging so I will try not to ramble and get to the point. One of my many hobbie...

Wheelchair Woodworking #1: Woodturning with a Disability

10-24-2010 01:12 PM by Jamie Speirs | 15 comments »

WOODTURNING from the Wheelchair(just a copy and paste from www.jamiespeirs.com ) Woodturning is one of the crafts that lends itself towards most disabilities. It can be done in a fairly small area with relatively inexpensive equipment. It is not overly strenuous and can be quick to show results; hence it’s mass popularity. The object of this is not to go into any great detail about woodturing itself, rather on guidelines on what look for in a course or in a tutor. Red Pine Three T...

Slit Drum Build #1: The Test or Prototype Drum

10-23-2010 11:51 PM by OttoH | 4 comments »

After seeing Steve at Woodworking For Mere Mortals, throw together a Slit Drum I have decided to build one as a Christmas present. I have built a prototype / test drum and can now proceed with designing the final drum and building it. Since this is a learning process, I have decided to blog the building of the drum to document what I have learned about it. I did a lot of research on the internet on how to build a slit drum and found that there are three preferred ratios for tongues 3...

Tool Tutorials #2: Frog and Cap Iron Adjustment Part 2 - The cap iron

10-22-2010 02:28 PM by David Craig | 10 comments »

I have ordered 3 planes, so far, that were used. Of those three, only one didn’t arrive with the iron almost fully extended. I don’t see planes at garage sales any more, but when I did, I noticed the same thing. While the blade extension might seem like the obvious problem, one of the real underlying issues here is that the cap iron is not set right. The cap iron is another item on the plane that I think is overlooked, yet is an essential piece to successful plane operation. Of...
