Demystifying Door Construction

07-20-2014 04:52 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 34 comments »

Constructing passage doors can seem intimidating. In this video I share with you how I built a custom door and demystify the process of 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 intimidating such as a door. I hop...

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...

Tips for Building a Freestyle End Grain Cutting Board

11-12-2013 05:04 PM by JL7 | 18 comments »

Lately I’ve been building some end grain boards that don’t follow the “traditional” convention of the repeating pattern from one end to the other. Examples: I call them Freestyle boards. I put together a video that shows some cutting and gluing tips: I really don’t have a lot of detail photos of some of the more complex blocks but I will share what I have so far: These are some of the shapes: The diamond shapes were inspire...

Shop Notes #3: "No End In Sight" The documentary.

09-22-2013 02:44 AM by vipond33 | 20 comments »

This is a trick that many, if not most of you, already know. But it’s a good one and bears repeating. Quite recently I read this: “but I am still working on trying to make a box with no start and no finish and thus far have only been able to wrap my boxes on three sides”. (noted on KK’s fine project). The process has been around for a long time, but I remember independently figuring this one out a while ago and thinking what a smile it would bring to the aver...

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 | 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...
