Disposable KerfMaker

1142 days ago by rance | 31 comments »

Well, yes, the Kerf Maker is a very clever jig. I have a different take on its manufacture. I see a reason to have several, NO, Wait… Why not make them DISPOSABLE? :) I had a need to use one today so why not make one. Here it is:  I used a stick of about 1/2” square pine. Yeah, Pine(or is that Poplar?). And some double sided tape. Cut the stick in half. (I’m kinda protective of my tape. Can ya tell?)  Then stick both halves together with the tape. &n...

2 DYE 4

1870 days ago by trifern | 53 comments »

I have had numerous requests for a how to blog about my dyeing techniques. I use water base aniline dyes. This technique the dye is applied using 20 cent sponge brushes and cheap paper towels. I typically work from the darkest colors to the lightest, creating layers of color. This piece is turned from fiddle back maple. My apologies for not taking a photograph prior to applying any dyes. The first coat is black. I apply the dye liberally inside and out. I then wipe the outside with a...

Evolution of a Shop #33: Bandsaw dust collection

737 days ago by Cory | 8 comments »

My Shop Fox bandsaw has a dust port at the bottom of the lower wheel. It does a decent job of getting the dust that stays in the cabinet, but like most bandsaws mine sends a lot of dust under the table. I had a few dust collection parts laying around and decided to try and add some dust collection just below the blade. Here’s what I came up with: Overall shot Detail of 2 1/2” port under the table I epoxied a couple of rare earth magnets to the dust port. It rests on p...

How to make a Wild 'n' Crazy two-tone board

1401 days ago by Mary Anne | 33 comments »

Sometimes the finished project looks harder to make than it really is. By request, here is a quick tutorial on making a two-tone pattern board. All you need is a bandsaw… or maybe a scroll saw. Start with two boards of contrasting woods squared and surfaced on all sides. ——Use double-sided tape to align and stack them. (carpet tape works great) ——- Cut random curvy lines through both pieces on the bandsaw. This was my first test of the Carter S...

Double Tumble Cutting Board

1156 days ago by SPalm | 38 comments »

Or maybe I should call it Two and a Half Steps. Anyway, I cannot believe that I am building another one of these, but heck, they are so much fun. This is a continuing saga of endgrain geometric boards using three contrasting woods. A light color, medium color, and dark wood selection are jointed and planed to the same thickness. I started by tilting the blade to 60 degrees and ripping an edge on all three boards. I then moved the blade over about an inch and ripped again creating a sma...

Staggered Steps Endgrain Cutting Board

1494 days ago by SPalm | 42 comments »

This is a new style of cutting board (at least new to me). I was thinking about 3D designs on the way home from work last week, after Martyn’s Blog and Steve’s Video. So I came up with this. Kind of Sinister, kind of Tumbling block. Once I drew it out, it reminded me of Staggered Stairs (which are kind of cool), and reminded Karen of the Steps on the Row Houses in Baltimore. So that is how the name came about. I started with 6/4 walnut cut into 10 inch strips. This small length makes ...

Hide Glue for Beginners #6: Perfect Splined Mitre Joints in Five Minutes Without Clamps

1129 days ago by shipwright | 21 comments »

When I posted “Arnie’s Tea Box” http://lumberjocks.com/projects/50187 one of the comments (Roger) was that these boxes make a great venue for displaying my marquetry. I totally agree but that meant streamlining the process of making the box. First was to come up with a jig to make the corners perfect every time quickly. Here is what I came up with. Disclaimer: I’m not a jig person so my jigs are usually utilitarian and often “throw away”. This phot...

72 note Movement, Music Box #2: "Segmented Turned Feet"

1233 days ago by Dennis Zongker | 27 comments »

Each foot has 8 pieces of Flamed Birch, & 8 pieces of Macassar Ebony. By making a template to glue up one foot at a time, the angle is a 22.5 degrees. Then I clamped them with rubber bands, it’s amazing how strong they are for clamping. Then turning them on my lathe, which was very fun. When I was younger I was addicted to turning on a lathe. Now I think I’m addicted to all kinds of woodworking. At least it keeps me out of trouble. Thanks for looking, and Happy Woodworking....
