The Making of My Escher Cutting Board/Box Top

03-23-2012 02:35 AM by jeepturner | 10 comments »

So some time ago I posted my Escher cutting boards. I promised a blog on how I made them. I hesitated to write this blog because of the time involved and that my blog will in no way come close to the well laid out blogs done by some of our more talented members. Of course I never would have attempted this project before I was inspired by this guy: who puts out incredible blogs like this one Martyn took a line drawing from thought to art and I read every line. Then I also had read anothe...

My attempt at a 3D cutting #1: 3D Cutting Board Inspired by SPALM!

01-13-2012 11:14 PM by RetiredCoastie | 21 comments »

Quite awhile ago SPALM posted his project for a 3D cutting board: http://lumberjocks.com/SPalm/blog/17488 the more I followed his progress the more I wanted to build one myself and thanks to SPALM’s ripping jig and his idea I began building. Along the way I found myself in need of various clamping jigs that would make this project as easy and as accurate as possible. The journey begins:I built the ripping jig that Spalm built and ripped my stock with the blade set at 30 deg. using sc...

No Quarter #3: Top to Bottom

07-24-2011 12:10 PM by BritBoxmaker | 9 comments »

Well the top shell glue up was successful but I’m not going to show you yet, you’ll have to wait. Its good. Well I think so. Next we need to make the bottom shell. First we’re going to need some measurements. Width 92mm (you can do the maths, divide by 25.4 or multiple by 100 and divide by four for an approximate figure) and depth 51mm. To make the actual shell a tight fit I subtract 1mm from the width making 91mm (fold up and glue line add a tiny fraction almo...

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

10-04-2010 11:38 PM by McLeanVA | 51 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...

Tight Weave the Down and Dirty

08-08-2010 07:16 PM 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...

Wood Lathe Router Guide #1: Wood Lathe Router Guide

09-12-2012 03:36 AM by Jim Jakosh | 15 comments »

I’ll take you through the steps I used to build my router guide for my wood lathe. It is essentially a box with adjustable sides and top which has a slot to guide the router bushing. It is made from 5/8” plywood, clear Lexan, Steel and aluminum.I started with a 11.5×11.5 bottom and cut rabbets on both sides on the table saw and made a cut out for the tail stock. The sides were glued in place held square by a couple scrap blocks. They had T nuts installed for the adjustment ...

Panel Cutting Jig

04-06-2008 08:08 PM by Dadoo | 22 comments »

A couple of whiles ago when I posted my lumber rack, some of the LJ’s inquired about my panel jig. I figured that if I ever needed to replace it, then it would be right to blog it for you. I’m not going to take credit for this as I have seen it somewhere else in one of the many woodworking mags. Just can’t remember which one! This jig is used lying on top of sawhorses or the bench to crosscut and rip large sheets of material. I say “material” because we’...
