How to make a endgrain tumbling block butcher block board!

1812 days ago by degoose | 48 comments »

Hi guys ,, I had a request to make a tutorial with regards the endgrain Tumbling Block Design.First off,.., You need to decide the size of the blocks…. for this example I used 1” stock… Or something similar.. actually just over .. once dressed. Set the blade of the table saw to 60 degrees.. a bevel box makes this simpleI use the INCRA fence system so it is easy to rip bevels off side of the blade.Once the bevels are ripped measure the length of the bevel and move the f...

"Art Box" Tutorial #12: Shaping

1813 days ago by Andy | 28 comments »

Updated 1/16/12 This is the fun part! Its scary too! The idea of taking a nice crisp box, one you have spent countless hours making, and attacking it with a tool designed for slag removal is…well…its a little disturbing. Maybe I was influenced by old Hitchcock movies more than I know. Seriously, what I enjoy is the freedom this gives me. Everything up to this point has been tied to measurements and careful setups. This is where we can cut loose a little. But slow down Hot...

hand carved redwood bench #1: The materials, site, and thoughts

1815 days ago by kolwdwrkr | 5 comments »

I’ve been building a fence here at the house I’m renting (see blog). I ended up getting 2 sections out of one board as opposed to the 1 section I originally thought so I figured I’d use some of the material for a couple of projects. The first one is this bench, the second will be a carved screen door. This project is going to be a little tricky because I don’t really have “fresh” materials, nor do I have the thickness’s I would buy if this was goin...

Murphy Bed Side Cabinets #10: Side Cabinets Ready to Prep for Finish

1818 days ago by Gene47 | 1 comment »

Today was a good day. I managed to get the side cabinets for the murphy bed fiinished and all I need to do now is but some edge banding on the adjustable shelves sand and prep for finishing. I know that at the moment it looks like a hodge podge of material but the face frame and drawer fronts are made of Obeechee and upon the suggestion of a man at the lumber supply place I was told that this wood would stain up and look like Mahogany. I did stain a test piece and it looked like it was...

Briefcase #2: Cutting, sanding, finishing and glueing

1820 days ago by Chris Wright | 2 comments »

So, now I’ve got the bulk of the work done on the case. Where I left off in my last blog I had cut the sides and glued the top together. Now, I got the top down to the right size. This was a little tricky because I wanted to keep the joint pretty much right in the middle of the panel. Once it was to size it was time to route a cove along the edges so I could fit them into the slots I cut into the sides. I used a cove cutting bit that I filed the guide bearing post off of so I wil...

Techniques & Methods #2: Fixing Messed-up Blind Dovetails

1821 days ago by PurpLev | 16 comments »

As I mentioned in my recent workbench blog, I had used inverted dovetail joinery to connect the skirt of the benchtop to the endcap. just like Arabian Nights, there are 1001 stories why joinery can get screwed up- mine were rushing + miscalculating + lack of experience + other. All of these matter not, and the end result is a misaligned, crooked, awfully looking, and unacceptable dovetail fit: you can plainly see the tearout and large gaps between the mating parts, and the misalignment on ...

Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #5: Update

1822 days ago by lew | 17 comments »

The other day, I posted another rolling pin. There have been several requests about how to make them. I thought I should update this tutorial with the new and improved trimming jig. Top of jig- hold down clamps, handle, and cutout. The cutout is the main new part to this jig. Previously I was using my tapering jig. The problem I encountered was that if the trimming process was not perfectly flush with the pin blank during the first trimming operation, then the blank would not clamp fla...
