Wood Pallet

850 days ago by Dennis Hunter / Laura Merchant | 3 comments »

Well I had some great responces to my Abstract post so I thought I would clear up some of the questions here. I found a mill in Oregon last year and we drove there to buy our wood. When Laura and I got there Chris the owner was very nice to us and helped us personaly. Our first pallet that had all kinds of different small pieces of wood on it he gave us a great deal and Laura is still cutting from. We bought all different kinds of wood from him drove away with a truck load of all kind of nic...

Double Tumble Cutting Board

1149 days ago by SPalm | 38 comments »

Or maybe I should call it Two and a Half Steps. Anyway, I cannot believe that I am building another one of these, but heck, they are so much fun. This is a continuing saga of endgrain geometric boards using three contrasting woods. A light color, medium color, and dark wood selection are jointed and planed to the same thickness. I started by tilting the blade to 60 degrees and ripping an edge on all three boards. I then moved the blade over about an inch and ripped again creating a sma...

Staggered Steps Endgrain Cutting Board

1487 days ago by SPalm | 42 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 ...

1805 days ago by degoose | 48 comments »

Set the blade of the table saw to 60 degrees.. a bevel box makes this simpleI use the INCRA fence system so it is easy to rip bevels off side of the blade.Once the bevels are ripped measure the length of the bevel and move the f...

Not Just Any Box #2: It all hinges on these..

2378 days ago by YorkshireStewart | 35 comments »

I have a love affair with wooden hinges and this challenge gave me the opportunity to go one step further with them. (It started some years ago when I came across the work of the late Tim Stead – in my opinion, a genius.) Accurately drilling the hinge pin hole in such a hinge is never easy, and those I planned for this box are 9.5” long and therefore impossible to drill. The following is an attempt to show how I overcame this bit of the challenge. The first shot shows the oak blan...

1387 days ago by McLeanVA | 50 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 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...

This is just a quick post to give some information regarding the way I make the wine bottle balancer…You can use other dimensions and it will still work I did research the whole thing and found different angles and other variables…but this is what I have come up with by trial and error… to make the bottle balance in a horizontal position.. not pointing up or down… more aesthetically pleasing.. and if it looks right don’t mess with it… Length…11 ...
