Torque Workcentre at work.. #41: Dimensions and angles...

04-03-2011 10:45 PM by degoose | 13 comments »

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 ...

Wine bottle balancers #1: How to bore the balancer hole for a level bottle

11-16-2012 01:01 AM by Jim Jakosh | 14 comments »

Today I modified my balancer drill fixture in many ways. It was originally built to bore a 1 5/16” hole at 45 degrees through the wine bottle balancer, but it had a few problems. first, the Forstner bit would twist and lock up before it got through the board. The bit got smoking hot and expanded in the hole and did not retract easily. And the bottle did not balance level! First I milled out the bottom of the fixture 1” deep for a sacrificial piece of wood so the drill is alwa...

Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #1: The Jigs

10-04-2008 01:36 AM by lew | 12 comments »

I have had so many positive comments and feedback on the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin. Thank you for all of them. Many LumberJocks asked for instructions on how they are made- so here goes. I am a fan of “Cook Book” style instructions so if I miss any details, please let me know and I will try to flesh them out. I thought it best to start with the jigs I used to prepare the turning blanks. Please note that I always over engineer everything and hardly ever see the obvious or the easy...

Open Apron Nesting Tables #2: Ebonizing and Burl Matching

08-28-2014 12:51 AM by shipwright | 21 comments »

I didn’t take any photos of the ebonizing process originally, but since several people expressed an interest I made a little video today. It shows the process in real time on a piece of off-cut Walnut from one of the legs. Ebonizing is a simple process that lots of people do and it works well on any naturally high tannin wood. I understand that with the addition of outside tannin in the form of a tea wash it can be effective on non tannin bearing woods as well although I have no expe...

Steps Cutting Board Version 2 (Two Step)

08-18-2010 03:03 AM by SPalm | 69 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...

Demystifying Door Construction

07-20-2014 04:52 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 36 comments »

Constructing doors can seem intimidating. In this video I share with you how I built a custom door and demystify the process of door construction. Watch Demystifying Door Construction One of the ideas that I really want to impress on everybody is this: Don’t be intimidated by new projects. When approaching a new project, most of the woodworking actions needed for it, you have done on other projects. By recognizing this, you create the mindset you need to build something that seems i...

Chess board with outlined squares

04-21-2014 06:35 PM by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

Howdy, Joe asked me to create a little Blog about how I created my chess board. I’m happy to do so. I’ll just remind everyone that when you are seated at the board, the corner square to your right is white. I’ll edit this post this week to add illustrations. Truth being told, the cutting board and box makers are far better at this than I. This design is just a basic cutting board without using end grain. I didn’t allow for expansion so the whole thing may just explode on me one day. Us...
