End Grain Cutting Board LJ Class 006 #4: Lesson #1

05-19-2011 10:10 PM by degoose | 16 comments »

I know that this has been long awaited.. and I hope that the delay has not caused some to drop out of the class… NO.. I am sure that is not the case… one things that woodworkers have…is patience… Miss Debbie wrote in the latest copy of Lumberjocks e-Mag… “Patience is a virtue” they say, and a woodworker often has to use patience while working on a project. I’m picturing the time spent sanding an item, taking the sandpaper to finer and fine...

The Maloof Library Series #8: Something for all of you iPad enthusiasts...

05-19-2011 12:28 AM by ScottMorrison | 3 comments »

Hi everyone. My extremely talented wife just wrote a groundbreaking new APP for the iPad. It’s the first of it’s kind for woodworkers, enabling you to play with a 3D rocking chair (and all of the separate parts) right on the iPad. You can order parts, take notes and do lots of other cool stuff including watching come never-before-seen videos right within the APP. I admit it, I am a gadget guy, and this is so much fun to play with it makes it hard to go back to making sawdu...

Homemade Blacksmiths Forge

05-18-2011 03:53 PM by AlexHarris | 20 comments »

Hey not exactly woodwork but I do hope to use this in the future to make some really nice handles for some projects and other trim pieces. (hope this is OK) Really just an update on something else I have been doing and the construction of a forge, although I have improved it a little since. Hope you enjoy!

sharpening cheap chisel

05-17-2011 02:42 AM by andyboy | 9 comments »

This was an interesting exercise. I quietly hoped I was going to transform one of these cheap chisels but it was not to be. They are so buckled and bent that even 3 nz dollars was too much to pay. See what you think any way.Andy.http://www.youtube.com/user/Aandyaitch123

Segmented bowl sanding jig #1: Help with disc sanding jig

05-13-2011 07:40 AM by kapanen | 7 comments »

Recently I have dabbled in making segmented bowls. I have had a few successes, but have realized that I won’t be able to reach my desired potential without getting higher detailed pieces. All this means more pieces per bowl, with more intricacies, which means more precise angles etc. I purchased the masters book via kindle, “The Art of Segmented Wood Turning”, by Malcolm Tibbetts. Being over anxious in learning the secrets and coupling this with the cheaper price has c...

05-12-2011 05:58 AM by ScottMorrison | 6 comments »

A while back, I posted some pictures of the most difficult project I had ever attempted…the Maloof Music Stand. Much to my surprise, quite a few woodworkers have expressed an interest in tackling this thing, so I have finally put together templates and a detailed instruction booklet for anyone who thinks they’re up for the challenge. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. ;) You can have a look Here Enjoy! Scott Morrisonhttp://www.finewoodworker.com

1 – Parting the coneCut the top of the cone using the tip of a cutter, or a saw. When using the cutter done very carefully using the technique of chip carving (press cutting, no sliding).I left the straight (where the reflective) so that the cone is better to put at the top of the bucket.1 – Tronzar el conoCortamos la parte superior del cono utilizando la punta de un cutter bien afilado, o un serrucho. En caso de utilizar la trincha, hacerlo con mucho cuidado utilizando la técnica...

The cyCONE - El ciCONO #1: Get parts - Conseguir las partes

05-07-2011 09:17 PM by Marpintero | 3 comments »

Well, the last day of the “Safety Week” is a good time to start a project that will help keep the workshop clean and safe. Already much has been talked about cyclone, so I will simply attempt to show step by step how to do mine.The parts I use are readily available in my country and pretty cheap.1 – Vacuum: An older model 800 W and 2-inch hose that so far has given me very good result, with the only problem that fills up very fast and the system filter (paper bag) is ...

Workshop Development #24: Can you fit 4" dust collection hose to 4" PVC S&D pipe? Yes you can!

05-07-2011 05:31 AM by dbhost | 2 comments »

This is an older video I made to answer a question on Phil Thien’s forum about if you can fit 4” DC hose to 4” S&D pipe. The answer is a quick and simple yes. The video was to prove it to doubters. I thought LJs might be interested so I am sharing it here!
