Charles Neil build along mahogany lowboy "series" #12: week

06-12-2010 11:43 PM by a1Jim | 29 comments »

Charles Neil lowboy build-along, #12 When I left you last time, I’d just finished with installing the drawer dividers. Now, I finish the top rail dovetails by cleaning the sockets with a chisel, until the top of the dovetail is flush with the top.Now I need to trim the top even with the top of the legs. It’s time to turn my attention to the side scrolls. I start by printing out the PDF that Charles provides for subscribers of his “Mastering Woodworking” series. After g...

A Salad Bowl set of maple & walnut #2: A Salad Bowl set of maple & walnut #2

06-12-2010 06:12 PM by Bob Simmons | 4 comments »

On the following day after the glue has set, the band clamps are removed. It is time to begin truing up the ring of segments. In order to attain flatness on one of the ring’s edge I’ll lay a segment flat on the bed of the disc sander. It’s important to maintain a 90 degree angle during this operation. Take your time and make sure of accuracy. When the edge is truly flat we can then proceed to the lathe. Now the ring is mounted on the lathe and the opposite edge...

A Salad Bowl set of maple & walnut #1: The Cutting and Assembly of Staves

06-11-2010 11:11 PM by Bob Simmons | 7 comments »

As you can see my first maple segment is cut. The dimensioning of the material  has been taken care of and the compound mitresaw has the necessary angle. I use a Wixey digital gauge to ensure the accuracy of the sawblades’s angle. The stop-block on the right is clamped into place to maintain a consistent width for the segment.  (Note:I always use scrap to test the accuracy of the segment’s angles. I do this by cutting 1/2 the amount of bowl segments and taping the outside perimete...

Mary Anne's Whistle - handtool version #1: How to with handtools!

06-11-2010 05:58 AM by rwyoung | 6 comments »

OK, so Mary Anne posted some blog entries on making whistles. I decided to make one using only hand tools. Here's a link back to Mary Anne's post. So, we start with some rough lumber. In this case a piece of wacky cherry. The board has lots of pitch inclusions, crazy grain and cupped something awful. But it will be fine for a whistle. By the way, no rulers were harmed (or used) in the making of this project. All measuring done by the Mark-I eyeball. 1) Cross cut a blank. Eye...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #8: Necessity Breeds Invention

06-10-2010 02:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

It’s funny how innovative we can be when we have to. I grew up with modest means and learned early in life not to waste things and to take care of what I have. Things didn’t come easy for us so we had to use what we had and make it last. I don’t see anything wrong with that. I think it is a good way to think for many reasons. I had a friend who used to tell people he loved to lend me his tools because when he got them back, they were cleaned and looked like new again....

Toot, Toot, Tootorial #3: How to make a whistle on a router table

06-09-2010 08:48 PM by Mary Anne | 38 comments »

Sorry about the delay in posting this tutorial of the series. I ran into some technical difficulties… which is another way of saying I sometimes have the attention span of a gnat and messed things up the first time around. Speaking of messing things up, I’ve injured my knee and have to stay off my feet for a few days. I am only on day two and already going crazy. All in all, it looks a good time for going on with this toot toot tootorial series. —...

Creating and Turning Salt and Peppermills

06-09-2010 07:02 PM by Bob Simmons | 8 comments »

How often have you dined at a restaurant and the waiter or waitress asked you “Would you would like some cracked peppers with your meal?” Probably more than once, right? If you’re like me I answer “Sure. I’d love some.” There’s just something nice about having a good meal with freshly ground salt and pepper. For a long time I have browsed through my various woodworking catalogs and noticed mechanisms for salt and peppermills. Then one day I decided to order the mechanisms and make a se...

Charles Neil build along mahogany lowboy "series" #11: week

06-07-2010 07:33 AM by a1Jim | 33 comments »

Charles Neil lowboy build-along, #11 When I left you, back in installment # 8, I had just finished cutting out and installing the scroll board. The next step is to mill out the drawer dividers. First, make sure that both sides of the scroll board measure an equal distance, down from the top of the legs. After clamping the scroll board where it belongs, I then cut out a scrap piece of MDF, to be used as a spacer and clamp it in place. Now I’m ready to check out where the lower divi...
