What happens when you cut with a drunken saw. #2: The Man behind the Idea behind the Man behind the Board .. My very good accomplice..David
For a long time I wanted to make a woven board.. even before LJs,. then after joining LJs I saw one and make one.Still looking for something different to impress my new found friends ,, had looked at curved designs and then I thought a curved woven boardI was just going to make it like the Drunken chess board.,. no rhyme or reason,. then along comes Patron aka David with his double curve.. so I just made the jig.. for the double curve spiral LL and …...It hits me ….that is can us...
Basic 1/4 ” plywood.. mark a line at a diagonal across the board.NB. the sharper the angle the longer the piece that can be cut.Inset two bearings on this line 19” on centre to enable the use of the 9.5” Radius template from the first jig with single curve. Fit a bolt in the righthand bearing and fit to the bearing in the base unit.. turn on bandsaw and cut the curve till you reach the line and then change pivot points to the left hand side of both the jig and the base unit ...
I have spent the last few days in the workshop working out how to make this jig.. and have it durable and repeatable and totally accurate and easy to use.Actually this jig can be used for two different projects … well probably more that two but thats all I have used it for so far.To start, I had to build a table to go over the bandsaw table for the jig to pivot on. [double pivot actually][two pivots two pics right!! ]The table was made from 5/8” [15mm] plywood, with silver ash us...
We end up making these three or four times a year, so I decided to post about them because there are so many uses for them. Our cut-off boxes end up getting mitered in a few different angles and we fianlly have one for 45 degrees and a seperate for 90. It’s a quite useful and versitile tool, a must have in all shops.

Now that the sides are sized and cut to length, it is time for cutting feet and marking up to get ready for dados, rabbits and dovetails (dados, rabbits and dovetails, oh my! Sorry Dorthy.). The feet of the cupboard are cut into the sides and two lower front stiles. Notice that the “front” foot is slightly narrower than the “rear” foot. This 3/4” difference will be made up by the stile after it is attached. I drew the shape I wanted on some scrap 1/8”...
I decided I need a nice place to keep some china what-not that has started to accumulate around here. My parents keep dropping off stuff that they have stored at their house, now it is getting stored in mine… After much looking around and cogitation on the matter, I decided the first thing to make would be a cupboard, specifically a step-back cupboard. These are open on the top, and a closed cupboard on the bottom. Sometimes two pieces, other times one. Later I’ll look into...
Editing photos has always been regarded as something best left to advanced geeks and professionals. It seems to me, though, that everybody with a camera, a computer and an Internet connection should be able to get some personal satisfaction from this “advanced” technique. It isn’t hard to do, but you will need to give it your attention, especially at first until you get some experience with it. Don’t let that bother you. You’ve learned to operate woodworking t...
Sorry I’m late.. but alot has been going on. Jumping back in Today were making the TOP… Only cut what you can glue up (trust me on this, Movement will kill you (and me I had to add 2 more sticks after I tossed several I just cut last weekend that did the Watusi on me and I decided it was cheaper to just spend another 16 bucks and get a pair of 10’ start over pieces) So, The Glue really needs to dry for at least 4 hours. On a good weekend I can really only make a pa...
Well, I was asked to put together a blog on how I made my segmentd ring. Since I had to make a new one for myself, (first one too small) I thought I would go ahead and do a step by step picture tutorial. My first time ever doing something like this , so hope it comes out OK. Here goes; Wood Selection The first step in making the ring is deciding what woods to use. As we all know, the selection is quite large. One of the most important things is color, but the most important is hardne...
