Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options When most of us think of a wooden bowl, we think of the lathe. But you can also make bowls using the router! All you need is a template for the desired shape and a pattern bit to remove the stock. And fortunately Eagle America has holiday-themed kits for making some incredibly cool bowls. These make great gifts and they are super easy to make. The video shows you not only how to make a router bowl, but also ho...

Crafts Shows R Us #15: Thank Goodness for Fall Shows

1380 days ago by closetguy | 8 comments »

I just got back from the Maryville, Tennessee show, which is consistently my best show every year. This year brought high 70s and a cloudless sky all three days which was a big improvement over last year’s windy and low 40s. They had 38 Special and Jefferson Starship performing on Friday, Lynyrd Skynyrd on Saturday, and Blake Shelton on Sunday. This contributed to 30,000+ customers walking through this show. Last year brought phenomenal sales, but this year finished out at three times l...

Cutting Board: How To's #1: Zig Zag Cutting Board - How To:

1388 days ago by McLeanVA | 50 comments »

For those of you who asked me for a tutorial on how to make the zig zag legless vegetable death table (cutting board), here is my best shot. I am far too impatient to take photos when I work, so I decided to illustrate the process using some good old Adobe PhotoShop. I hope you find this useful and informative. I will outline the process in 10 steps below. I have assumed that when viewing these steps that basic woodworking skills are familiar to you. If you have questions, or run into snag...

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

1395 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...

Another Cutting Board Design

1472 days ago by SPalm | 26 comments »

I am in the process of building another board and thought I would share my thinking process along with some build pictures. When I came up with the design for the Steps board, I was thinking about how one draws a 3D box on a piece of paper. You draw a large square, and then add small mitered edges to one corner to give the appearance of seeing it slightly from the side. Making these miters out of two different woods adds to the shadows, which adds to the effect. I did this for the Steps b...

Staggered Steps Endgrain Cutting Board

1488 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 ...

Jigs and Fixtures #1: Dovetail Miter Splines

2553 days ago by scopemonkey | 3 comments »

The first part in doing this, like most miter splines, is making a way to support the work to pass the corner of the miter over the cutter. In this case, I made a sled that goes over the dovetail bit and cradles the box in a V groove. I glued up 3 pieces of 3/4 plywood into one laminated sheet, then cut it square to the dimensions I needed. Then, I ripped it in half with the blade tilted to 45 degrees. Take one of the resulting halves and flip it over and butt the sawn edges together to c...

The Wavy Larry- my jig

1654 days ago by dustbunny | 18 comments »

I’ve had several LJ’s request pics of the jig I made for the wavy Larry board. I’ve snapped a few pics and sent PM’s with bits and pieces of info individually. Mikethetermite asked for some info a few days ago and I decided to bit the bullet and take the time to do it as a blog. Here goes- On my band saw table I have a sacrificial board- 3/4” plywood squared and framed to the table. The back frame piece unscrews and swings up to put the board on and off the ta...
