Chaotic Pattern Cutting Board

09-27-2014 01:31 AM by lobro4 | 5 comments »

I have seen some markedly ornate cutting boards here on LJ but this style always intrigued me. I give full credit to MTM Wood for the how to. This Russian fellow has a website where he sells his boards and a YouTube channel that shows how to make many of the fancy styles you see. But unlike him, I do not have a large capacity sliding table saw. Nor do I have a 20” planer. Nor do I have a dual-drum sander. So here’s now I did it with my 13’ Dewalt planer and my 10”...

Steps Cutting Board Version 2 (Two Step)

08-18-2010 03:03 AM 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...

Tumbling block cutting board techniques, lessons learned and tips for cutting and assembly

01-13-2014 02:32 PM by jfk4032 | 8 comments »

After looking through some other blogs here on LJ and watching some Youtube videos I thought that the tumbling block cutting board was something that looked challenging, cool and something I wanted to try. I learned some good ideas from these other blogs and wanted to share some of my experiences having now made three of these, my setbacks and discoveries to better produce these tumbling block patterns. I purchased a Wixey digital angle gauge as it looked like you really needed to be accu...

Cutting Board: How To's #1: Zig Zag Cutting Board - How To:

10-04-2010 11:38 PM by McLeanVA | 51 comments »

For those of you who asked me for a tutorial on how to make the zig zag legless vegetable death table (cutting board), here is my best shot. I am far too impatient to take photos when I work, so I decided to illustrate the process using some good old Adobe PhotoShop. I hope you find this useful and informative. I will outline the process in 10 steps below. I have assumed that when viewing these steps that basic woodworking skills are familiar to you. If you have questions, or run into snag...

Scroll Saw Portraits - HOW TO #2: Part 2 - Full Non Video Tutorial with screen shots.

01-27-2013 06:19 AM by MichaelAgate | 16 comments »

Hi everyone, Not sure if you seen my previous message about the video. The quality was just so bad, I couldn’t post it. The resolution was set too low. What I have below, is a tutorial on how to create your patterns. I made the tutorial as simple as possible by showing you what to push and click. I didn’t spend any time in explaining the program or any real features. My goal was to give you something that you can follow by simply following the instructions. This tutorial should...

"Art Box" Tutorial #12: Shaping

08-11-2009 01:55 PM by Andy | 28 comments »

Updated 1/16/12 This is the fun part! Its scary too! The idea of taking a nice crisp box, one you have spent countless hours making, and attacking it with a tool designed for slag removal is…well…its a little disturbing. Maybe I was influenced by old Hitchcock movies more than I know. Seriously, what I enjoy is the freedom this gives me. Everything up to this point has been tied to measurements and careful setups. This is where we can cut loose a little. But slow down Hot...

The EZ mitre technique

07-26-2010 10:55 PM by BritBoxmaker | 76 comments »

Hello all. Well I seem to have whet the appetite a bit so here goes for a ‘novel’ technique for making mitred boxes. Its a bit like making a box out of paper, like they showed you at school, using a ‘net’. Only in 3D, with wood and a tablesaw (not sissors). Well first comes the board Its made from alternating strips of Maple and Rosewood of varying thickness. I won’t bore you with the details on how to make it suffice to say that all the corners must b...
