Koa, anyone?

984 days ago by WordCooper | 1 comment »

Anybody in the Portland-Vancouver area looking for some rare Koa wood from Hawaii? I have a beautiful slab from Maui, about 57” long by 15” wide by just over 2” thick—almost 12 board feet of this rare and gorgeous wood. This is a section cut through the base of a branch so it includes some wonderful crotch grain. One significant check, which still allows two major cuttings—one of about 52”x5”x2,” and one of about 48”x7”x2...

foot powered Scroll saw #4: The Tower

1832 days ago by Tom8021 | 1 comment »

The tower needs to be beefy. I had some 7/8 ASH laying around so I used it. Everything hinges on the tower so don’t be shy adding a few bolts. The lower part ( 2 1/2×15 1/2) is just bolted to the base with three lag bolts. I drilled the base so the bolt heads sat flush with the bottom. There are dados for the vertical pieces. I wanted to make sure I could minimize any movement and I think this works with the triangle supports. By the way the dimension of 13” on the to...

foot powered Scroll saw #6: Spring my foot

1832 days ago by Tom8021 | 1 comment »

I bought a package of four springs at Home Depot. You can put a spring at the back or at the front. I tried the different sizes in different places and picked the 4” one near the front. I put it on by gluing short pieces of dowels, one to the base and the other to the bottom arm, and slipping it on. The next thing to do is drill a hole in the end of the bottom arm. I failed to mention that the hole for the blade holder is 1” in from the front end of both arms. Also, I cut ab...

Veneer Cutting Board with a Magswitch Clamping Straight Edge

1205 days ago by sbk | 1 comment »

This 1/4” plywood veneer cutting board is backed with 22 gauge steel. Using this configuration with a straight edge and Magswitches aids in holding and stabilizing one or more pieces of veneer with the straight edge. The photo above shows the cutting board in use with the white melamine straight edge. Hardwood would be a better choice of materials for a straight edge (this was scrape). The straight edge used is 40” long and 4” wide with five 40mm holes for Magswitche...
