Table saw blade height #1: Setting up for through cut

10-19-2010 12:15 AM by momiji | 7 comments »

Maybe there is something I don’t understand. I can’t figure out how setting blade height to barely clear the gullet of the blade above the piece of wood being cut is appropriate. I can, however, figure out two good reasons not to set the blade anywhere below its maximum height: First, considering that heat dulls the carbide tips and that heats builds up with friction and friction is proportional to the lenght of travel of the teeth in the material being cut, setting your blade low, let’s s...

Making a Violin #2: End Blocks and The Middle Bout

10-16-2010 05:12 AM by RonPeters | 8 comments »

I’ve cut and installed the corner and end blocks on the mold with just a dab of glue, so when I remove the mold, they release easily. These are what the ribs (sides) attach to. The blocks are made of willow because of its lightness and the added benefit that it is a fairly straight grained wood which makes cutting with the inside gouge an easy task. I then drew the points and top and bottom using the template. These are two different violins – reason for two templates. U...

Only about 1/4 of the way done. Showing some carving stages on how to carve “Green Man” This is really fun for me, just having some fun, carving something for myself.

Drill press turning Making a plane knob on the drill press challenge. Last week I needed a knob for a fence I was making for my no. 3 and 4 planes, and was ready to go to the lathe.- But decided to challenge myself by making it on the drill press, with the simplest means I could find (yes I’m a child).I also took pictures as I went along so I could share it with those who don’t have a lathe. This was how it turned out. A piece of wood, if you don’t happen to have a piece ...

Cutting Board: How To's #2: Zig Zag Cutting Board Patterns - Inspirational

10-05-2010 09:19 PM by McLeanVA | 22 comments »

I was absolutely overwhelmed by the positive response to my Zig Zag How To blog post yesterday, that I decided to brainstorm some possible combinations (on my lunch break) using the basic steps I outlined yesterday. All of the same techniques and steps apply, and really the only difference is the woods and measurements that make up the original “sticks.” Same rules apply to width = height. Length is up to you. Please experiment with whatever measurements and combinations strike...

Luthiery Fun #5: Bending the Sides Part 2

10-05-2010 10:08 AM by Chinitorama | 4 comments »

Here’s a shot of my bookmatched sides ready to be bent: Many luthiers shape an edge on each side with a compound curve before bending. This aids fitting the back and makes it a good idea to label everything before you get started. I’ll shape this edge after bending, but want to ensure the grain is as symmetrical as possible from bass to treble sides of the finished instrument.Bending begins at the waist and I’ve marked this location approximately 14” from what wil...
