I have been gone

05-31-2017 06:40 PM by Ronald G Campbell | 11 comments »

Many of you may have noticed I am not posting much any more. Well after 10 years retired I have gone back to work. I think it is only going to be part time but we will see I have bought a small company AZ Carbide. They are a distributor of carbide cutting bits made for the woodturning community. The company is 7 years old and distributes product world wide. My intention is to grow the business and hand it off to one of the grandkids Currently we sell typical carbide cutters like...

Uploading Photos ... A Tutorial

03-30-2017 01:10 PM by Ron Aylor | 6 comments »

Uploading Photos –  I’m sure this has been addressed before, but I thought I would offer a tutorial for the Windows® users out there, nonetheless. All Windows® computers have the program Paint installed on them. In using Paint, one can assure that their photos are, sized, oriented, and formatted correctly for upload to LumberJocks.  No matter what you use to take the photo(s), digital camera, iPhone, etc., transfer the photo(s) from the device to your computer. Once uploaded, open...

The first Boulle style box Engraved Boulle marquetry box lid STARTING POINT I am always looking for something small and complicated to make.

Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #5: Veneer Resawing- Bottoms

03-07-2017 04:05 AM by TungOil | 4 comments »

I spent some time this weekend setting up to resaw my veneers. I put together a quick jig to help assure my veneer thickness came out as even as possible. Since even a variance of just 0.005” over ten slices of veneer could add up to nearly 1/16”, I made sure my jig was parallel to the blade. In addition, I flipped the board for each slice of veneer to cancel out any error accumulation. Each veneer slice is 5-1/4” wide and 5’ long. The cuts take about 18 m...

3D Router #1: Building the base.

12-17-2016 02:48 AM by bj383ss | 10 comments »

My dad showed me this 3D router on YouTube by Paoson Woodworking. After watching what he could make with it I promptly bought the plans. Spent a couple of days reading over everything. Yesterday I pulled the trigger and started cutting parts. Here is a link to the 3D router. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NG9IAndPcrw&list=LLK7KPItDX6b8e0CcGKJNG_Q&index=5&t=6s Got all the parts cut for the bottom. I also ordered the 32 bearings I need from Amazon. I had a laminated pie...

Evolution of a Shop #40: Plywood Cutting Table

04-24-2014 02:17 PM by Cory | 6 comments »

I’ve been making a lot of built in cabinetry for our new house over the last few months, which has meant dealing with a lot of sheet goods. My old grid of 1×4s had taken a beating and finally gave in to all the abuse. So, I needed to make a new plywood cutting table. This one is made with half-lapped 1×4s, just like the last one. It measures 4’ x 8’ so it fully supports a sheet of ply. I also reinforced the spots where the grid connects to my sawhorses. ...

Jigs and Tools #1: A One-Handed Clamp with a Deep Reach

04-04-2015 10:15 PM by GnarlyErik | 2 comments »

Another Lumberjocker asked for plans for my One-Handed Clamp (Picture #1). So far as I know this type of specialty clamp was originally devised for building lapstrake boats. In lapstrake boats the laps are clamped together for riveting which requires reaching across the full width of the new plank with the clamp. But this clamp also comes in handy at times for other deep-reaching, and/or one-handed clamping needs. I decided to publish a copy of my patterns here for anyone who needs them. ...
