Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #4: Setting laminations to final thickness

02-14-2010 06:09 AM by sras | 8 comments »

Once I have the 3 lamination blanks cut to width I thickness sand the strips to reach the final dimension. I have tried using my planer, but when the strips get this thin it is easy to end up with damage. I set my ShopSmith up as a disc sander and use a thicknessing jig. I first showed the use of this in a previous blog. There was some interest in a more detailed description so here it is. Here is the setup. Basically it is a 3 1/2 inch tall bullnosed block clamped to the fence. The...

A Jig that worked well for me

02-12-2010 06:37 AM by danr | 11 comments »

Hello, OK, I figured out the picture thing. Most of the photos are cropped off on the right side (as the instructions said they would be). Next time I will take this into account when taking the pics…..... Just wanted to post a quick blog to show a new jig that I have built to cut spline slots for a Greene and Greene table top (i.e. the bread-board ends). I have seen a few ways to do this here on this site and other places (thanks to all LumberJocks for all of the great ideas I ha...

Extremely Average #41: True Dat

02-12-2010 03:50 AM by Ecocandle | 7 comments »

Progress is accepting what was once the goal, as common place, seeing the new goal as within reach. -Aki Haruki, world renowned sharpening monk. I am not afraid to reference a blog post from my first week! Nor am I afraid to strive for greater accuracy in my cuts. After sanding the 2×4s to within 2.54 centimeters of their life, I made my marks and cut four friendly nineteen inch pieces. Though I am much better at using my Japanese hand saw, I am no ‘Aki Haruki’, mostly beca...

Solid Wood Door glue-ups / Tips and Techniques

02-11-2010 03:15 AM by KnotWright | 6 comments »

One of the best things about Lumberjocks is that an individual can be exposed to so many different ways to do the same task. While you are working in your shop, you aren’t really exposed to too many different ways, normally the way you were taught, or how you figured it out, tends to be the way we always end up doing things. This way might not be the most efficient or productive, but it does get the job done. My question for everyone is how do you do the following task: I”...

Lumber Storage

02-11-2010 02:05 AM by kosta | 3 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to talk about lumber storage. Most woodworkers have a lumber rack you almost never see a shop without a lumber rack either in the main part of the shop or outside. I have never used a lumber rack just because I have never had enough wall space. The problem with lumber racks is that to get to 1 board you really have to move a lot of other boards. Some lumber racks are 7 ft off the ground. If your up on a ladder moving 15 lb boards around that kinda sucks. Its not...
