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 ...

Another Cutting Board Design

07-12-2010 05:00 PM by SPalm | 26 comments »

I am in the process of building another board and thought I would share my thinking process along with some build pictures. When I came up with the design for the Steps board, I was thinking about how one draws a 3D box on a piece of paper. You draw a large square, and then add small mitered edges to one corner to give the appearance of seeing it slightly from the side. Making these miters out of two different woods adds to the shadows, which adds to the effect. I did this for the Steps b...

19 foot Offshore Power Dory Build #1: Getting Started

12-18-2014 03:55 AM by English | 5 comments »

I have started a new project for the winter. I am building a 19 foot Offshore Power Dory Boat. I am 65 years old and have spent my life building things for everyone else. I have always wanted to build a boat, so with my wife’s blessing that is just what I am doing this winter. I have spent hundreds of hours studying boat plans, reading about building boats on boat building forums and researching about every thing I would need to know to build a boat. I picked a plan. A 19ft Offshore...

We also have made good progress on the lower unit of the entertainment center. The lower carcasses are now assembled and we have made up our beaded face frame. the next step is getting t...

Shop's Log #13: Bent Apple Pipe

09-01-2014 08:16 PM by terryR | 11 comments »

Wow, cannot believe it’s been over 2 months since I posted a Blog…still behind I am… I promised a bent pipe at the end of the last Blog, so here goes… The challenge for this project was to create a BENT pipe; meaning the airflow and tobacco chambers do not line up at 90 degrees. Seemingly simple, but not so using a lathe. Many pipe makers use specialized jaws to hold the workpiece for this geometry, but I’ve also seen a few use the techniques below… ...

Templates #1: Push Block/Hand Plane/Saw - Handles

02-20-2011 07:58 AM by dakremer | 12 comments »

Hey guys. Just fooling around tonight with my new drawing tablet. (FIRST PICTURE) I drew a proportioned handle template for a hand plane (Stanley). It is not to scale though. You can scale it, print it out, and see what size works best for you. I made these templates for people who want to make their own handle for their hand planes; or a handle for a push-block. I have the JPEG file on my computer, so if you don’t know how to save the pic (to your computer) from here, message me ...

Jellyfish Table #3: Legs and Base

06-28-2009 09:52 PM by Blake | 19 comments »

LAMINATING THE LEGS When I left off I had cut most of the strips. That was a very tedious job and I broke it up over several days (over 80 total). I finally got to the point where I could start bending my laminations. Here is the “dry” trial run: Here are the strips laid out to apply the glue. I had to mix the special glue made for laminations: And here is the first glued up leg in the form: After about three days I had all eight legs. Some of them are s...

Lincoln Logs

10-15-2014 09:15 PM by SPalm | 20 comments »

I made two large sets of Lincoln Logs for the grandchildren. This is how I did it. There are a few steps involved so I used indexing stop blocks and such to make it more safe and repeatable. I basically followed some of the same techniques as this post on the web but changed a few things and added roofs. http://home.comcast.net/~pocket83/site/ Also I decided not to stain my sets as we kind of liked the clean pine look, and this is also completely non-toxic (and easier to make). I put to...

Kitchen Remodel #1: Buffet and Hutch

05-28-2007 05:43 AM by Karson | 6 comments »

My wife says I can’t do anything else before I start on her Kitchen. Well except for her hall table and ??. Of course there is also the Summer Contest. This is going to be a multiple phase project. I need to do something with the floor. We are on a cement slab floor and it is killing both of our legs. The kitchen had a Pergo floor when we bought the house, but we had a frozen water line before we moved in and the Pergo floor got curled edges, so it was all pulled up. I don’t...
