Bridge City Tools: TenonMaker TM-1 #2: Kerfmaker Shop Made JIG

10-23-2016 01:16 AM by HappyHowie | 1 comment »

Since Bridge City Tool Works do not have their KM-1 Kerfmaker in stock and they are without any indication if they will be making others, I have decided to make a similar jig in my shop. I have just a few more steps to complete this kerfmaker jig. 1) cut 1 inch off the top piece and glue it one end of the bottom piece. 2) With the top and bottom pieces fitted together drill a hole through both piece centered on their width and 1 1/2 inches away from the glued end. This hole w...

Printing on Wood (Transfer Using Acrylic Polyurethane)

10-21-2015 05:07 AM by TheCrafsMan | 26 comments »

I wanted to share this method because I’ve tried many of the available printing-on-wood techniques, including citrus solvent transfer (don’t use acetone, by the way) as well as Liquitex and Mod Podge. Acrylic Poly Finish (aka “acrylic polyurethane”, “polycrylic”, etc.) is not only cheaper than the above, but you end up with a cleaner image because it is less prone to rub off during the paper-removal stage, it is clearer, and it dries much faster. As a...

Ink Transfers- How I do it. So a number of folks have asked me about the method I use to put images and lettering on my projects. I thought I would use today’s blog as photo tutorial of sorts to answer this question. A few years back I ran across a Youtube video of a guy doing an ink transfer method using a laser printer and an iron, I have been working with this idea ever since. For this project I thought I would make a few bookmarks. First thing you will need to do is create ...

New Mitre Sled

03-22-2013 06:33 PM by MrWhite | 8 comments »

So I have been meaning to post this for a while. I have been building a cabinet/drawers for my parents house. Much of the project needed accurate mitres and I have had bad experiences in the past cutting them on a chop saw. Since I just made a crosscut sled for the table saw I figured I would make a mitre sled. So here it is: As with my crosscut sled, I used ¾” birch ply for the base, doug fir for all the parts on top, and red oak for the sled runners. Here’s the unders...
