Well, the centerpieces are coming along fine. They are glued up and will sit in the clamps overnight. The next step is to put a clear coating over them. Some other projects I’m looking at doing is a candy stand that I saw in a book and a display box for some hot wheel cars. Of course these will be another blog. I post pics when I’m done with the centerpieces.
I just got a lot of neet tools at an auction today. Just wanted to share with you.In dont need the wood rasps so if any one wants to make an offer I would sure entertain one. There are 8 files I won’t be keeping. Also I threw the Makita sharpener on ebay. I already have one.I got the scoll saw for $60 with the stand! I am excited! Does any one know what it is worth?!!http://i774.photobucket.com/albums/yy21/OregonBurls/PlanerBladeSharpener003.jpg!
Hey everyone, I was asked by a few of you from my blog “How to find legal burls” “once I get them how do I cut the burls”? Well I just made a short vidio on how I cut to the burl in the context of a bowl or hollow form blank. Please coment and add if I don’t cover it well. If you not want to go thru the hassle of finding and cutting your own you can alway buy from me. LOLThanksGreg Thanks Todd on the tip for getting the video on this post.
Hey everyone, It was suggested that I start a discussion on how to find and harvest burls. Please give your input also. I don’t deal with straight grain that often. I cut and sell burls for a living so here is what I know. It is illegal to harvest a burl without permission. of course if it is on your own property you can give yourself permission. What I do is put an ad on Craig’s list saying I want your burls. Most people don’t know what burls are. So you don’t get that many calls....
I set up the router table to make the slots for the slide rails. I just used a 1/2” straight bit to make the groove and I sized my rails to fit later. So here I used a chisel to square up the fronts of the grooves that I just routed. This is not really necessary it will just make it easier to adjust the drawers forward or backward if they don’t line up just right, Which they didn’t in the end. I had to remove just a bit more towards the front on one side so that they ...
I started by marking out all the cut lines with a marking gauge. I have one of those simple wood pass through another wood with a thumb screw and a little pin, ones… so….I chiseled out the sections in the maple down to the lines after cutting the shoulders with the dovetail saw. I then transfered the tenons to the backside of the zebrawood with the marking gauge again. Then chiseled around the marks and worked on taking out the material with the chisels. A mortiser would be really...
I’ve just finished cutting the tails out with the hand saw. Here I am working on chiseling the tails to the lines that I marked out with a marking guage. I had some troubles getting them to fit with no gaps and realized that I hadn’t chiseled enough of an angle out so that the edges fit snugly. After doing that they fit great. I have the faces of both drawers matched so that it hopefully looks like they come from the same board. I marked inside the joint with numbers so that I kne...
So I started with 8/4 zebra wood that I bought off my brother. He builds bass guitars for a living and had some left over wood. I resawed the wood down to about 5/8” on my craftsman 12”(given to me by my father in law) with a Woodslicer 3-4, 1/2” blade from highland woodworking… Amazing blade, if you have a bandsaw and need a resaw blade for it check them out because it cuts like a hot knife through butter compared to ANY other blade I’ve used yet. https://www.hi...

I think I have slightly over-reached for my first project, but here we go! First the gear in my garage shop that I have to work with: - Ridgid TS2410LS folding table saw with Freud 60T crosscut blade, Dimar Woodpecker thin kerf ripping blade and stabilizers- Ryobi tabletop drill press- Ryobi 10” sliding compound miter saw- Canadian Tire 10a Router w/ table The router is a piece of junk, but I’m happy with the TS so far, and have no complaints about the miter or drill pres...
