Hi everyoneWell it’s been awhile since I’ve done a new Intarsia piece (or any scrolling for that matter) but with the warmer weather here in Va. it’s time to get back in the shop and get creative. Here are a couple of pics of my newest creation to be. It will be titled “Caught in the Headlights” and will be my first night time scene. I’ve been wanting to do this for quite awhile.I will be combining parts of these three photos to depict a rather humorous set...
Open: Closed: I’ve enjoyed and have been inspired by all the various Grease Boxes and I’ve got a few ideas in the future. I was first inspired by Roy’s, and I started one based on his design, but alas, it sits unfinished ‘somewhere’ in the workshop. One day I’ll finish it, when I find it. 1) In the theme of trying to come up with something different, and 2) trying to find a use for some of the scraps I have lying around all over the place, here is ...
This is my first blog and I hope it will go over well. This sander was inspired by models on the Internet but mostly by Blake: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/7641 and by Bob: http://lumberjocks.com/Bob3418/blog. I would like to thank them both for their posts. Without them this project would have been very difficult to complete. Concept: My intentions are to make a 20” +/- wide drum sander that will easily switch from thickness to surface sanding. I would like to be able to reduce stoc...
I am hoping that some of you can make some suggestions on what I should make next. Whatever I make I will do a blog on how I made it. If it’s really involved, maybe a multi part blog. Well, the house is already full of furniture so I can’t make anything big unless I get rid of something. (Very hard to do since I built most of it.) Here’s what I’m looking for: 1. Something I have never made before. 2. Hopefully something unique.3. Something that will expand my ...
Here is how I made my Intersected cutting board posted here. There seems to be a lot of interest in this board so here is a blog on how I made it. First of all here’s what I planned on making. It’s the top one. After I got both the circles intersected I liked how it looked with the rounded corners so I just added in the “wedge shapes”at the top and bottom and called it done. I think that it makes it very distinctive also. As one person guessed I ...
Item two involves notifying everyone you know about your new business. Before starting this I would make up some business cards that clearly state the work you do. Make them clean looking and avoid anything that might confuse people about the work you do. I have made some excellent cards on my computer using simple software and biz card stock but you can also purchase them and even get some for the price of shipping from a company called VistaPrint.com. Once you have the cards, start by fa...
well, a wonderful machine back in working condition, and off to a good home. This six inch Beaver jointer was a real eye opener to how well some of this old iron was designed and built. I did have some troubles along the way, the colour match paint was a no-go. I’m thankful I did not sand off all the old paint first, just a few parts. The paint did not apply very well, and took three days to cure. so I did not proceed with a repaint, just a few touch ups of bad or important spots. ...

“This molding cutter will not fit my insert for the table saw,” I says to me. So I says, “Let’s make a new one.” “Use some MDF and trace the Zero Clearance Insert you bought from Lee Craft,” says I to me. “yes, and good folk they were.” “Trace the thickness needed” says I. Okay, enough of that weird self talk. Time for the coping saw, having ripped MDF to thickness. Trace the parts of the old ZCI so that it will fit...
I got off a little early today and caught some shop time. I had a nice couple of chunks of ceder and wanted to try my try out. Its a Dwights and French & co. try plane. I couldn’t help myself.Now I cleared all that away and continued to hone on my fore plane iron. Its a Alex Mathieson & Sons Glasgow Scotland fore plane.I have been working on the iron with a honing jig. I have about 4 hours with it on a diamond stone. I would polish the back with my worksharp 3000. Then I finishe...
