370 days ago by Patricelejeune | 10 comments »

Some of new have seen our new project on other posts. We had a pretty good success with our first series, the 4 copies were sold in a year. We are going to revisit this box sold at Christie’s if my memory is good.The picture quality is not great, but we enjoyed the composition and decided to use it as a ground for our new design. The design has been finished for couple weeks now, and for the past couple days we have been working on preparing for marquetry cutting. As I ...

easy trim router round tenoning jig

418 days ago by woodcox | 1 comment »

Here is what I came up with for making my version of this jig. The box is stainless steel channel that can be clamped to the bench. I used an inexpensive Central Machinery trim router mounted to the top. Depth of cut is about an inch and a half but could easily be up to three inches by repositioning the bar. I had an old magnetic dial indicator base that I took the post off to make up the bar positioning assembly. One end of the bar post is threaded which I simply located with a hole in the ...

1406 days ago by mafe | 37 comments »

How to use a KerfmakerOk, many asked me this question, and I have seen it again and again on LJ. If you need to find out how to make one, you can see my Kerfmaker 'Brass'n wood'. Another fun gadget is the tenonmarker:http://lumberjocks.com/projects/39236 I’ll try to explain, as well as I can, feel free to ask questions if I do not make myself clear (I’m only human): Collect what is needed, in this case a base stock and two thinner side stocks, and of course a Kerfmaker...

Making the Wren #1: Start, to almost finished

802 days ago by Donna Menke | 11 comments »

This is the finished bird that I started 2 weeks ago. It took about 24 hours to get it to this stage. I still need to make a mount for the bird, and I’d like to make it unique. That means no ‘bird on a stick’, but also not the trite ‘wren on the edge of the cup/bucket/shoe’ environment. I’ve been wracking my poor little brain trying to figure out something unique and good- that I can do in 3 weeks. Any suggestions.ideas would be appreciated. ThanksNow to th...

Dovetail Square

834 days ago by BigYin | 2 comments »

Paul sellers video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dPb_5KFEYk&feature=related showing how to make a dovetail square was the inspiration for my version of a dovetail square. Its a design I haven’t seen made or used for thirty years or so. I had some scraps of 1/4 inch ebony handy and used those. The two angle cuts were made in one pass to ensure identical 6:1 angles. As were the 90 degree cuts at the other end to ensure identical length. The length is 3 1/2 inches by 1 1/4 i...

Table Saw setup for Half Lap Joint

848 days ago by rance | 23 comments »

When you need to set the height of your TS blade to half the thickness of your workpiece(regardless of its thickness), try building a teeter totter. A what? Like this:   Get a flat scrap of wood and mark perpendicular lines across equal distance between each other and from one end of the board. This is your teeter totter. Raise your TS blade higher than you expect to cut and rotate it so one tooth is at top dead center. Lay that flat board across the blade where the middle ...
