Torque Workcentre at work.. #16: Dressing a slab.

01-25-2010 01:25 AM by degoose | 11 comments »

Here is a few short videos of the Torque Workcentre making light work of dressing a slab of Eucalyptus.. . . This slab was fairly hard and around 16 inches by 30 inches..even though this is a small slab by any standard the principle is the same and as you can see it only takes minutes.. so if the slab were bigger it would still not take any great amount of time to flatten and smooth it…

01-23-2010 12:17 PM by Eli Adamit | 4 comments »

I was asked about carving eyes in my last project shown http://lumberjocks.com/projects/26334 and answered with a small lesson, It was after most of the members who are interested see already the project and the comment. I assume that more people are interested in this subject so I send it in the blog.I was asked: “On the first side shown, the side with just the head, how did you do the eyes, if you don’t mind sharing. Mostly on carved eyes, I see them carved inward to use shadow to d...

Carved Coffee Table II #1: Making the apron profile

01-16-2010 12:08 AM by Alan Young | 1 comment »

I am building a coffee table that is based on a piece I built in 2007. The first table has a solid top made from Sapelle and a base where the apron and legs were from Mahogany. The new table will have the same general shape-in all sections-top, apron and legs. The changes will include, walnut for the legs and apron, and a top that is veneered with inlayed designs. The carving’s on the legs and aprons will be different too. I began taking pictures of this second table when I was ...

Dovetail Pen Turning #4: Success!!

01-14-2010 07:14 PM by SNSpencer | 4 comments »

Dovetail Pen Progress Success!! It took a few more tries but I finally have a set of pen blanks worth of being assembled into a final writing instrument. Some more issues that I have run into along the way are: Working with Padauk and CA glue – I found that when I was applying the CA glue to the blanks to stabilize the chipout that the glue would pick up the color from the Padauk. This in effect became a “stain” that would penetrate the Maple and start to turn it pink. I solved this ...

We’ve covered the basics of a shaker style door, and then added moulding to it. There are a variety of door styles. Lets discuss a cope and stick. First of all, the cope and stick door is a 5 piece door. The Cope is the ends of the rails, or the “tenon”. The sticking is the decorative detail on the rail and stiles. The cope and stick cuts a 3/8” groove in your stock, as well as a 3/8” tenon. Use these depths to determine the width of your door. For instan...

Fireplace Wall #1: Popping the Grain in Black Walnut

01-14-2010 03:16 AM by SouthpawCA | 4 comments »

I was trying to find a good article/link about popping the grain in black walnut but didn’t find one that really explained it for me. There are many articles/links dealing with maple though. As luck would have it, our woodworkers club in association with the local adult education was going to host a few classes on finishing. These classes were mainly dealing with “old school” finishing techniques including French polish. Although not actually going all the way through th...
