Inversions cutting board tutorial

09-15-2011 03:50 PM by jadams | 11 comments »

In response to some questions about how this pattern is made… I’m not sure if this is the only method, but here’s how I did it. Here’s the original project I posted: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/53452 Hint: When you look at the board, long ways going left to right, every row is a different size, but every group of 2 rows are all the same size! Solution: First you rip strips like you would for a regular end grain board, but in a progression of widths from l...

Well the glue has had time to cure… now to take the weave out of the clamps. A quick trip through the drum sander… Reasonable flat… now it is off to the bandsaw… onto a circle cutting jig.. A quick pivot.. Now we have cut all the corners off… there will be less to sand so back in the Drum Sander To show the colour and grain a little mineral spirits.. Tomorrow… a base and bearing… final sand and a few coats of poly.. Might use the Ear...

The Basement #42: Building ZCI's with a homemade pin router for the '113 TS

05-21-2014 10:07 PM by JL7 | 14 comments »

This has been on the list for awhile now. I’ve built ZCI’s in the past from Oak and Masonite but overtime they have issues. I got my hands on a Leecraft ZCI for my Craftsman 113 TS and was blown away at how nice it was. So all the design credit here goes to Leecraft, here’s a picture: The Leecraft doesn’t use the front hold down screw that comes standard on this saw, rather, they use 2 horizontal screws (one in front and one on the right side). You tweak...

my first blog ever/ how I made the round box.

10-01-2012 09:13 PM by Jim Sellers | 8 comments »

Due to popular demand I’m attempting my very first blog for those who wanted to see how I put together my round box. I’ve had a couple of 30” sections of a column left over from a remodeling job I did over 10 yrs. ago. I always knew I’d find a use for them. First step is to rip them in half. I’d recommend a sled or an extra rail on the table saw to ensure straight cuts. They’re too thick and need to be thinned down. The best way I’ve found to do this is to use your table saw as a planer....

Shop Stuff #5: Machine Cut Through Dovetails

02-23-2014 05:32 PM by SPalm | 28 comments »

Simple, Fast, Easy, Thin Pins, Variable Spacing, Looks Hand Cut, Simple Set Up, Tastes like Chicken. I have been playing around with dovetails for the last couple of weeks. I have tried many methods of making them, as complete hand cut ones are just too much work for me. I own a commercial Leigh dovetail jig but I have never been happy with the look or the futzing that it took to set it up. So this is what is working for me, all ideas are cobbled together from other designs. I cut the pins...

wood tick tools #6: Detailer & black oxide

01-07-2014 11:46 PM by woodtickgreg | 1 comment »

This is a batch of chisels I made because I needed a detail chisel. I made these from 1045 cold rolled steel. Here’s a few pics of the process. I also grind the tips back and sand them well so they are smooth at the tips and there is plenty of clearance for the carbide insert. There are no cnc machines in my shop, just me turning handles on my old machines and machining to the lines I laid out on the stock. All the tools drilled and tapped for the screw that holds the...
