Easy Shop Table

1295 days ago by Lockwatcher | 36 comments »

I started this project after building an assembly table from an issue of Wood Magazine (March 2010). The table was a lot of work (the torsion box top) but the main unit holding the table up was an easy build. That’s when I hit upon the idea of using the same design for a group of extra tables for other uses. I’ve built a number of these already, and am using one as a router table, a miter saw station, and a sharpening station. It is built using standard re-dimensioned co...

Another End Grain Board Build.....

320 days ago by JL7 | 37 comments »

I’ve seen people posting boards with diamonds and thought that was cool…..I built a diamond board a few weeks ago HERE... and I just finished this one today: So this blogs covers today’s board… For a change, I started with some nice wide timber. No scraps in this board. This is Yellowheart and Tigerwood: Cut into 1.5” by 26” strips (but I should have made them a bit longer). I don’t plan real well on the front end….4 of each ...

Crafts Shows R Us #17: Just A Little Bit Of Drama

1361 days ago by closetguy | 13 comments »

I have good shows, bad, shows, wet shows, and hot shows. Every show is different, but they all seem to have one thing in common; the drama. Uneventful shows tend to track with the size of attendance. Large shows will normally bring more drama than small ones. Drama can take on the form of bad weather, disorganized shows, or idiot customers. There is usually some mini drama at every show which can be easily dealt with by a polite comment. These are some of the more extreme ones. I am ...

1453 days ago by dustbunny | 15 comments »

Several people asked me to blog the process of the tight weave board.The original tight weave board was posted by degoose here as a blog. Larry Rocks !! I don’t actually have one to be made from the start right now, so I pieced together what I have to try to illustrate the process. In some places you will have to use a little bit of imagination, but I think it will be clear. Okay, the key to the weave or the tight weave boards is-1. lumber should be square2. cuts must be accurate3...

Staggered Steps Endgrain Cutting Board

1496 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 ...
