Steps Cutting Board Version 2 (Two Step)

1435 days ago by SPalm | 67 comments »

This is a second generation Steps cutting board made out of walnut, maple, and cherry. The first Steps board I made used a basic square with edge of maple and cherry to make it a block and a notch to do the stepping. I wanted to try to make a stepping board using the hex Tumbling Block design, and this is what I came up with. In order to make the hex do the stepping, I needed to notch all three sides, as can be seen in the Sketchup drawing. The cool thing here is that it steps in two di...

Drunken Cutting Boards #2: Smooth Flowing Drunken Checker board

1766 days ago by poroskywood | 15 comments »

So having read part #1 I’ll complete the second variation of the Drunken checker board pattern. The process is basically the same except for one critical part and is as follows. Start again by taping two blanks together. This time In stead of making opposing S cuts I’ll follow the S pattern with each cut. (I get a little sloppy, but it works out OK). Follow the Part #1 procedure. CRITICAL PART! This step creates the difference between the pattern in part one ...

1486 days ago by sras | 11 comments »

I deal with correcting mistakes instead! It has been quite a while since my last post, but I AM still working on this project. In addition to regular life, we have had a week long vacation, business trips (including 2 weeks in China), a family illness and preparing for RAGBRAI . The shop time has been hard to come by. I figured this would be a good time to confess and share how I am dealing with this round of unexpected issues. Dull Bandsaw Blade I started to shape one side of the...

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

1394 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...

Homemade Cyclone Dust Collector

1833 days ago by jcoulam | 16 comments »

I will try and share as much information about my cyclone as I can. When I first got started I went to Home Depot and to just see what they had. I found an 8” x 24” duct that was split down the middle, next I found cut off pieces of 2” PVC 24” long, in the plumbing area I found 2” rubber couplers with band clamps on both ends, all I needed now was a 5 gallon bucket and I had all the parts I needed. I didn’t take any pictures during construction so I ...
