Staggered Steps Endgrain Cutting Board

06-27-2010 03:56 AM by SPalm | 43 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

07-27-2007 07:03 PM 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

01-12-2010 04:12 AM 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...

Basic grill making

06-08-2009 02:08 AM by mtnwild | 9 comments »

I made a few bread cooling racks and was asked how I did that. This is how. I start with two pieces of wood. One for the width and one for length. Then I cut the slots in each piece. Exactly one half the thickness of the wood. The space between the slots does not matter. I just eye ball it, because it’s too hard for me to do the math. They will fit no matter what spacing you cut the slots, believe me. Random or calculated. ..Then I cut the boards into strips exactly as...

Going Natural #1: Natural edge bowls - how I do them

04-28-2009 03:50 AM by jeffthewoodwacker | 9 comments »

I turn a lot of natural edge bowls and vessels and have picked up many tricks over the years to make the process easier. I am also have made many mistakes – all of which I am glad to pass along. The first thing that I do is select the wood that I plan on turning. This is a chunk of honey locust saved from the chipper service. This piece is 20 inches tall and 18 inches in diameter and will yield two bowl blanks. A quick cut with the chain saw gives me two blanks for bowl...

turnings #8: red oak "70's ashtray" - square edge bowl turning

08-20-2009 02:04 AM by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

I found a nice 5’ piece of red oak at Home Depot that was a bit odd in hue, having more depth to its grain than what I usually see there. I had visions of turning some square plates, so I snagged it: I really slacked off on pics of this turning. This is the only one: In it, I’ve cut the end from the plank to square it up and remove the chipped edges. Then I cut 2 pieces off as long as the plank was wide (7-1/4”). Then I cut some squares of birch from a leng...
