A fellow Lumberjock requested more info on how I made my quick & dirty Quoridor board. After sending him the info, I figured I might as well post it here. It’s been almost a year since I made the board so I hope my memory is correct. Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll do my best to answer them. MAKING A QUORIDOR BOARD The overall width is determined by the size of the squares that make up the board plus the width of your blade. I made mine by allowing for extr...

Well, the planer was leaving tracks on one part of the blade. Obviously a chip in the knives at that point. So, with the camera rolling, I decided I would give the machine a bit of a clean up. It is a Makita 2012 planer, a little 12” lunchbox planer that I got from my father in law. So, the price was right. It is a bit odd in that the table moves up and down and the motor stays fixed in place. That makes in feed and out feed tables just about impossible. But, it is a good little ...

I’ve made a Sketchup extension named FitParts for generating cut plans from your drawing. Let’s say you are making a panel box just for example. First you make 6 walls and group every one of them as you go; it is nice and normal to name them, say left, right, .... Second you select these groups. Third you start my extension from Sketchup menu Extensions / FitParts / MakeCutlist. You will choose or type the size of (identical) panels you have and click the Cut button.What you will...

[Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] [Above] After the movable stop is on the bar, insert a piece of 1/4 in. dowel into the hole at the end of the bar. This keeps the head from sliding off. The dowel can be glued in, but if it is snug, you may want to leave it be. If left removable, the possibility is open to join two clamps together to make a longer one. [Above] Take the 1 in. x1 in. x 4 in. piece of wood and drill a 3/8 in. hole down the center about 3 in. deep. Using epoxy...
[Legebla en Esperanto] [Above] Cut the piece of flat steel into two lengths of 3.25 in. Use a file to blunt the edges and round the corners a bit. [Above] mark a point about 3/8 in. in from each end, centering it on the steel. Drill a 1/4 in. hole at these locations. You will want to use a center punch to give the drill bit a place to catch. The hole is easier to drill if you start with an 1/8 in. pilot hole, then go to the 1/4 in. bit. File any burs. [Above]...
Instructions for making functioning and decorative fireplace bellows: Feb. 9, 2004 (Up-dated Sept. 2016) I have made well over sixty of these. I developed this process and pattern from a carved bellows I bought in Norway in 1984. The decorative inlay process is explained in another blog of mine. Wood can be any kind that you like to use. Needed is about 30 inches of 1×8. One half-inch thick wood will also work if you can find it. I have used Oak, Cedar, Pine, Waln...
