Hand Cut Double Dovetail Experiment

07-03-2008 06:48 AM by Woodhacker | 74 comments »

After admiring the double and double-double dovetail joints that are capable with the Incra and other jigs, I started thinking, “Why not try this by hand?” So this box is my first experiment with handcut double dovetails. It took me some time to figure out the joinery process, but once I realized a few things about this type of joint, it seemed do-able. It was quite challenging but also a ton of fun. It also does take some degree of patience and precision…which I’m still working on. In...

Cutlist and Layout from Sketchup

07-03-2008 02:37 PM by daltxguy | 317 comments »

If you’re a fan of Sketchup for creating woodworking models, then the next obvious step is to use Sketchup to help you create cutlists and layouts. Sketchup plugin Cutlist 4.1 does just that. CutList 4.1 sketchup plugin helps you determine how much of each material you need to produce your design, taking into account nominal sized lumber with allowances for finishing to final size. Then it goes one further and lays out all of the pieces on boards or sheet good sizes of your choosing. Th...

Swirl Inlay Using Table Saw Jig

04-15-2008 12:22 AM by Kerux | 23 comments »

Here is a tutorial on the “Swirl” inlay that I use, but with a twist, this time I made a little jig for the table saw. As you can see it is a small simple sled. I then took the sled and marked a line of what I thought would be a good angle for most pen blanks. I don’t know what the exact angle is… I just eye balled it. It is more than 45 degree’s of that I’m sure of. I measure up the blank as seen here so that a little less than half the blank ...

'This Old Crack House' #1: Introduction

02-18-2007 11:12 AM by Dusty | 9 comments »

She never liked me. I knew this. Somehow I needed to talk her into selling me her house. I had tried several times over the last three years to buy it from her. No luck with that.I was tired of the constant traffic that stopped in front of the house. The cars would slowly approach the house – then suddenly someone would jump out of the car and run up the front porch and hand cash through the missing screen window.It wasn’t uncommon to see two police squad cars out in front of the...

A Workbench's Progress #1: In the Beginning

05-29-2007 04:17 AM by TheGravedigger | 7 comments »

In the beginning were the catalogs, and in the catalogs were beautiful workbenches, and attached to the workbenches were not-so-beautiful prices. Is there a single one of us that has looked at a catalog and not drooled over the incredible workbenches therein? Some may have unlimited funds, but I have trouble dropping a grand on a work surface. There are too many areas that have a greater demand on my hard-earned dollars. On the other hand, trying to edge-plane a board on a 6-foot foldin...

Pen Turners' Swap #2 #1: Pen Turners' Swap #2 is Underway!

06-10-2008 09:12 PM by itsme_timd | 15 comments »

Well, a little bit of a delay on my end getting this one started due to some personal matters but we are on the road again now! The box is headed to freedom75 in NC now and he should get it within a few days. Here’s a map of our travels this time around: Our total traders grew to 13 this time, from 9 total in Round 1. We had a few from Round 1 step out and quite a few come into the trade. If anyone has questions let me know, but it’s pretty simple and there are some...

Wood Gloat

06-06-2008 11:27 PM by Kerux | 4 comments »

Picked up Josh from the last day of school and then dropped by the grounds crew to see if they had cut any tree’s down lately. They did, One HUGE Maple. I can have as much as I want, but I’ve learned to only take a little bit at a time. When I get this stuff turned/roughed out, I’ll go get some more. The crew is really nice, they are so loaded down with fallen tree’s that they are glad to get rid of it. I’ve got my eye on a giant piece that looks very quilted...

Decal Pen Tutorial

03-11-2008 09:24 PM by Kerux | 17 comments »

Here is what I basically do with my Decal pens. As you can see I use Testors Decal paper. This can be found at Hobby stores. I purchased mine at “Hobby Lobby.” Just follow the directions for printing out your logo, name…etc. One thing I have found using this material is that you MUST use a light colored blank for the background. This is transparent film, but the inkjet inks are not solid enough for darker colors. That type of decal must be purchased through professional m...
