In this episode I go over some stuff about my router table.
Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a blog post on some tablesaw upgrades. Now it doesnt matter what kind of tablesaw you have. The first thing you want to do is upgrade your fence and miter gauge for the fence you should look at the bisemeyer fences. For the miter gauge look at the incra miter gauges. You dont have to upgrade to the bisemeyer fence or the incra miter gauge but you should definitely upgrade if you dont your just gonna get pissed and end up upgrading later. Now something that...
I fell behind on this a bit with the holidays (plus a bit of a headcold). I guess I’ll start out with a follow up detail from the last entry. Lisa (aka dustbunny) complemented me on the compound miters (Thanks Lisa!). I have to confess that they did not turn out that way right after glueing up. After I smoothed the rough edges, a few of the corners were not lined up right. In addition to the mis match, you can also see there is a slight chip in the lacewood at the bottom. Luckily...
In this episode I talk about how to find ideas about your next project. I am currently working on some prototypes for a jewelry box I want to build . The best thing to do with prototypes is either take them apart or use them for something else. Happy New Year www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com
Here’s how to make a Laminated block for my Turned S&P Mills, Ice Cream Scoop & wine bottle stopper 1= Cut lamination strips “Any Thickness you want, see diagram” by the width and length you need to make the size block you need for your project. Example 1/8”x2”x12” ,1/4”x2”x12” and so on!(It Does take some thought how you want to organize the laminates as the outer laminates will be glued together & the th...
I tried to post a diagram from Sketch up! as it turned out is was to small to read or see the diagram .Here’s what I did 1st I exported it from Sketch up in 2D to my pictures = Picasa then to PhotoBucket then from PhotoBucket to the LJs blog format page .I tried to enlarge it in my PhotoBucket but It wouldn’t let me to the size I needed.
I was out making a set of doors today and I decided that the fine folks here on LJs might appreciate a tutorial. I realize there are those of you that should be schooling me on the matter, but figured there were some that would like to learn it as well. So I will do my best to give pertanent information. Thanks for reading. To start off you need to consider shop safety. Make sure the guards on your tools are opporational and you have the proper safety glasses, ear plugs, and dust mask.F...
I get many requests asking me to do a tutorial on several of my projects.The most interest is in the following items : #1-PropellersThis is the 4 ft version I made for one of the contests, but I made a 6 ft that I havent posted yet. #2-Art BoardsI think cutting boards have been covered pretty well lately, with some outstanding designs that I cant wait to try out for myself. My boards are less functional and more for display. They are pretty easy to make once you get started. They just r...
Here it is. My next video… finally! I feel like I got over a lot of learning curves on this one. I found this a particularly challenging subject to present because router inlay can get involved and there are often several ways to go about the different steps. Trying to cram all that into a video, however, is more likely to discourage folks from trying router inlay. My goal in this video was to present the essential knowledge and skills that one can start building on, thereby remo...
It seems like the arched form needs to be lifted off the table by some amount. I’m not sure by how much. My technique in situations like this is choose from a range. Start with too little and keep adding until it seems like too much. Somehwere in between “too little” and “too much” there should be a “just right” or at least a “close enough”!In this case I start adding spacers underneath each end. Here is the range of heights. The wi...
