The Basement #36: The Sharpening Cart - Now with a buffing station.....

08-25-2013 06:48 PM by JL7 | 11 comments »

I made a few changes to the sharpening cart that I originally posted HERE. I added a removable platform to the right of the Worksharp – thanks for the idea Stumpy….much appreciated. Later, I decided to add the the Beall buffing setup under the the little shelf. Previously this was just mounted on a piece of plywood and I would drag it out every time I use it. Since I use it a lot, this should be useful. Also added the “shelf” that hold the buffing wheels, bu...

The Building of the Bulge....

08-11-2013 08:53 PM by JL7 | 24 comments »

Awhile back I built on of the “bulge” cutting boards that was inspired by Scott’s post: Here was my original post: I’ve been planning for awhile to build another and wanted to try a little different technique. And there is a silent auction coming up next week for my Sister’s battle with cancer, so this will be part of that. Here is the current board (on the left) along with the original: What I learned building the second one, is that the...

A Bench for My Uncle #2: The Back Legs

08-25-2012 06:12 AM by Aaron McCain | 0 comments »

After getting the parts laminated, the first step is to cut and form the rear legs of the bench. These have an 11 degree bend to support the back of the bench so the rear legs start out as a pretty big chunk of wood. I used masking tape so I could see the markings and also to minimize indenting the soft cedar. All the joinery is mortise and tenon. I have never cut a mortise or a tenon, so I was excited to try. Here is a photo getting ready to drill the first tenon. My counter top dril...

All in One Jig Part 1 #1: Diamonds and Triangles

10-02-2009 03:28 AM by dustbunny | 42 comments »

After posting the quilted lazy susan project, http://lumberjocks.com/projects/21623, many of you said you would like to see the jig for this project. I set out immediately to upgrade the jig. There were cuts I wanted to incorporate into this jig, and my original was warping and needed repair anyway. So here it is – 24” X 33” I am pretty proud of this jig, not only because I made it, but because the cuts made from this jig are right on the money. The first ...

Cutting Board: How To's #2: Zig Zag Cutting Board Patterns - Inspirational

10-05-2010 09:19 PM by McLeanVA | 22 comments »

I was absolutely overwhelmed by the positive response to my Zig Zag How To blog post yesterday, that I decided to brainstorm some possible combinations (on my lunch break) using the basic steps I outlined yesterday. All of the same techniques and steps apply, and really the only difference is the woods and measurements that make up the original “sticks.” Same rules apply to width = height. Length is up to you. Please experiment with whatever measurements and combinations strike...

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

10-04-2010 11:38 PM 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 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...

Shop Stuff #3: Sharpening Gouges and Skews on the WorkSharp

05-24-2013 05:55 PM by SPalm | 20 comments »

This is part two on my journey of sharpening my lathe tools. The first part was a Fingernail Gouge. Now on to the standard Spindle Roughing Gouge (SRG) and a Bowl Gouge. Both of these gouges are sharpened at 45 degrees. I started out making a triangle ramp to lift the gouges at 45 degrees, with grooves to roll the gouge in, but I gave up on it for now. One problem that I had was that my roughing gouge is not a perfect circle – it is more like a smiley face. It would not roll well in the ...

Pallet Harvesting

06-27-2011 02:40 PM by CptWingnut | 11 comments »

So this is my first try at a blog, and I figured I’d start with something that is simple and probably had already been done a number of times before. Regardless, I will probably learn more about blog making than you will about pallets. Pallet HarvestingFirst you have to find a pallet that is worth harvesting, craigslist is a good place to look, but I have had much more luck by finding a company in an industrial complex that receives a fair amount of freight. Target places that have h...

QUADRANT HINGE INSTALLATION

06-20-2011 01:02 AM by Jake Brain | 19 comments »

I spent a lot of time looking on the internet for a Jig or fixture to use to install a set of quadrant hinges. The quadrant hinge is a complicated-looking L-shaped hinge that is use in the jewelry boxes that I make. It helps to remember that a quadrant hinge is simply a butt hinge with integral lid stay or stop.The arms of the hinge extend along the sides of the lid and base of the box and the internal stop bar extends from and recesses into a mortise in the box wall and lid. The jewelry box ...
