Easiest Anvil Stand

03-15-2017 10:29 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I needed a stand for my anvil. I had just taken apart my workbench with all the 2×6 material and decided to use that. After cutting all the pieces to 23” I screwed 6 sets side by side using pocket holes. After I had all those done I screwed them all together in a laminate design. I flipped these back and forth to add strength so the pocket holes were not all on one side. Check out the video and subscribe.

Adventures in Lutherie #6: And then some!

12-29-2016 10:38 PM by Dave Rutan | 5 comments »

There’s a good chance that I’ll be doing a lot more lutherie in the future. Through a connection my wife has as a music teacher, I’ll be apprenticed to a music store as a repairer of wooden instruments. I wouldn’t call this an absolutely done deal, but very likely at the least. I love the idea of having a unique job and this one could be fun as well. I gotta start binge watching all the guitar repair videos on Youtube. I haven’t met the owner yet, but he̵...

Cheap wood 101

10-10-2016 02:27 PM by Fatherlewis | 5 comments »

Hi fellow LJs. I must say that in my first couple of months here, I have learned a lot. This place is a wealth of knowledge and good ideas, and maybe some not too good ideas. But hey, we are all adults here, and we share our triumphs and defeats, good ideas and bad(if there really is such a thing), as well as good deals, trade secrets, and all other things woodworking. So I found a steal of a deal on the hardwood rough sawn lumber over the weekend. My excitement poured over on the insid...

Basketweave Box w/Roses #2: Part 3 Using the window method

10-10-2016 12:34 AM by DonSol | 5 comments »

In the following drawing the book “The Marquetry Manual” by William A. Lincoln tells you the window method is done by starting with the farthest piece in the background. This would be #1 in the top drawing. Instead of following the lines in the drawing drawing when you come to an adjoining piece you over cut (dotted lines) into the adjoining piece. Put glue all the way around it, with a tooth pic, I put my glue in aplastic coffee can lid. Wait for the glue to dry then draw or t...

Basketweave Box w/Roses #1: Part 2 Assembling the basketweave

10-09-2016 12:04 AM by DonSol | 7 comments »

I had never done a basketweave before so this is the process I came up with. At first it was one of those trial and error things, I’m sure we have all done this. I covered the inside and outside so I had to have 10 panels. A time consuming process, but I would do it again. In this picture I am shading both ends of the pieces. I do enough to make 2 or 3 rows. I put 5 or 6 pieces in and by the time I get the last one in the sand the first one is ready to be turned or taken o...

Basketweave Box w/White Roses #1: #1 Making the basketweave pieces

10-07-2016 11:30 PM by DonSol | 2 comments »

About a year and a half ago I got a picture in my head of a box with basketweave, white roses and a tiger swallowtail. After a few days sketching and different ideas I came up with a design. This blog will show how I did the marquetry for this box. I did not take pictures while building the box, the marquetry was my main priority. I wanted it to look like something that was made to be used, not fancy, utilitarian, etc. The white oak for the box frame came out of a 100+ year old barn co...

Building Dave's Bar Clamp #3: The Jaw

09-28-2016 10:57 AM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

[Legebla en Esperanto] [Above] Now take one of the 3 inch pieces and put it on the bar in front of the clamp head that you recently glued onto the bar. Mark the height of one of the side members of the head on the 3 inch piece. N.B. in this position the area above the head is going to be the fingers. [Above] Using the other 3 inch piece, place it in the ‘finger’ area of the one you just marked. Center it from side to side and mark where it sits. [Abov...

Building Dave's Bar Clamp #2: The fixed head

09-28-2016 10:54 AM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

[Legebla en Esperanto] [Above] Take the 2 inch piece and measure 1 inch from one end. That end is henceforth the bottom. Mark the center between the sides and put a dimple in that spot. I used a convenient nail here. [Above] Now, using a 5/8 in. bit (or better, one just big enough for the nut,) drill a hole just deep enough for the 3/8 in. nut. You can see my hole is a little large. [Above] In the center of the shallow hole you just drilled, now drill a 3/...
