Whistle Me This #1: Basic Whistle

07-05-2012 02:29 PM by PurpLev | 13 comments »

I’ve decided to start a new series about whistles after my first attempt which was really fun and was posted here and about which this blog is about: I wanted to make a whistle for quite some time now, but just never gotten to it. I also knew I would like to involve my daughter in the making of… which worked out great! Everything used (material wise) for this project was from the cutoff bin (ok, I don’t have an actual bin – it’s just pieces that were left o...

End Grain Floor #5: More lands

05-14-2012 02:28 AM by Nate Meadows | 6 comments »

Before I moved on to more lands I needed to trim up the internal lines of tiles. I was laying them very close to the metal knowing I would later come back and add the grout line with the Festool Track and Saw. With that completed I was free to move onto the Land of the Celestial Though. This burl I got from (One of the best wood places I have found and the kindest people I have every met! Chris and Catherine Cook truly treat me so very encouragingly.) Anyway, the burl is...

Mortise and Tenon joint in oak

12-01-2011 12:51 PM by Paul Sellers | 17 comments »

Hi all, I seem to be on a roll with the videos at the moment. Here is another quick one I did last night on the mortise and tenon joint. I hope that this takes some of the mystery out of a seemingly daunting joint. It is quick and simple really and can be incorporated in so many projects. Let me know what you think and of course ask questions. Enjoy!

POINT TO POINT #3: The finale

09-11-2011 05:04 PM by BertFlores58 | 17 comments »

The hardest part of the series… the final part. I thought it would be simple to cut the lid. It should be easy to use a saw but that would create a kerf that will give error on the design. I use a knife (cutter) with a new blade and start to push it through on one corner then it goes on. The wood and the veneer still tough even with .5 thickness. There is no turning back on this…. The lips … I have to make 45 degrees cut by using the same 45 deg bit for my router. ...

Jigs and Fixtures #2: Dowel Stock Preparator!

12-09-2007 09:41 PM by mot | 22 comments »

I’ve been fiddling with wooden hinges, and can’t get good dowel stock. Epecially dowel stock that matches the species of wood I’m working with. I gleaned this jig from another Rob Cosman video. I took a 2” piece of walnut from the scrap pile. I drilled a 1/4” (0.247” actually) hole in it close to one face. I took a few passes through the drum sander to just show the hole cut. I chamfered one end to accept the workpiece stock. I clamped an old plane...

Scraps to Beads

10-16-2010 01:13 PM by Filinvested | 20 comments »

I’ll try to explain how I did this project: 1. I take a cutoffs, which just can’t to waste 2. Cut them into small pieces, not necessarily cubic: 3. Disks we need: 40, 120, 320 sand paper and wool disk 4. A tin and PVC stripes for soundproofing: 5. My driil. It can work for hours at speed ‘C/D’ (i have been told it could be problem for drills). 6. An IKEA stool and milled groove in it for the tin. 7. The...

Multi use tool- Router planer, panel saw, What else?

07-29-2011 10:55 PM by RockyBlue | 10 comments »

This is my take on a design by TZH of his router planer. I got the honor to tour his shop in the Rocky Mountains of beautiful Colorado a couple weeks ago and saw his setup. The gears in my machinist head started turning ( or grinding) immediately. I came up with this version using off the shelf parts available to anyone. I looked into making the rails with round shafts and linear bearings, but the cost was too high and rigidity was not good enough. The material used is extruded alumin...
