09-21-2010 09:14 PM by mafe | 39 comments »

How to use a KerfmakerOk, many asked me this question, and I have seen it again and again on LJ. If you need to find out how to make one, you can see my Kerfmaker 'Brass'n wood'. Another fun gadget is the tenonmarker:http://lumberjocks.com/projects/39236 I’ll try to explain, as well as I can, feel free to ask questions if I do not make myself clear (I’m only human): Collect what is needed, in this case a base stock and two thinner side stocks, and of course a Kerfmaker...

A Strategy for Woodworking #13: A Neatness and Precision

07-28-2014 04:31 PM by Gary Rogowski | 3 comments »

In Pete Dexter’s book Deadwood, Wild Bill Hickok’s partner, Charley Utter, is thinking to himself, “He liked having a drawer, it was a neatness you could see just sliding it open.” Making drawers requires a precision and calm missing from some other jobs around the shop. Cleaning out the dust collector comes to mind. Or hand planing some misbegotten wood like a rowed grain khaya. Drawer building on the other hand needs careful measuring, straight parts, and clear thinking to do a good job....

Glued up, Laminated, Sculpted, OSB, Rocker Build

03-03-2014 11:56 PM by luv2learn | 15 comments »

This rocker is a James Cole creation. He has been good enough to share his plans, for free, with all who would like to build this beauty. You can find them here The first thing I did was to save his plan pages using the”save image as” function since the plans are not in a downloadable format. Once I had saved all the pages I imported the two plan pages into Matthias Wandel’s Big Print software. Since Mr. Cole drew his plans on a 1” grid is was easy to scale them...

How to price my woodworking (and sell it) #1: How to price your woodworking to make a profit (and sell it)

05-30-2013 10:25 PM by huff | 22 comments »

How to price my woodworking?(And sell it) Part 1 So where do you begin to answer such a simple question; or is it that simple? I’ve heard this question asked so many times and I’ve heard so many one liner’s for an answer:• “Know your market”• “You can only sell it for what the market will bear”.• “I sell it for enough to support my hobby” • “It’s just a hobby, so what does it matter as long as you at least cover your material cost”.• Cost of materials x 2.• Cost of...

Steps Cutting Board Version 2 (Two Step)

08-18-2010 03:03 AM by SPalm | 67 comments »

This is a second generation Steps cutting board made out of walnut, maple, and cherry. The first Steps board I made used a basic square with edge of maple and cherry to make it a block and a notch to do the stepping. I wanted to try to make a stepping board using the hex Tumbling Block design, and this is what I came up with. In order to make the hex do the stepping, I needed to notch all three sides, as can be seen in the Sketchup drawing. The cool thing here is that it steps in two di...
