How I Make a Lazy Susan

2022 days ago by WoodMosaics | 33 comments »

Now before I get started on this little demonstration of how I do it, let me caution you on a couple things. IF you try anything like this, take the plate that your saw blade comes up through and close that hole completely up with a thin piece of wood. Make sure it is even with the top, with no gaps and no lips to catch the pieces. You want it smooth. Then with a “Hollow ground plywood blade” come up from the bottom so you have no gap between the blade and the wood. You may have to do this a ...

Hand Chopping A Mortise Tutorial

1635 days ago by stefang | 62 comments »

I described how to hand chop a mortise in a recent comment. Another LJ member asked if I would do a blog with photos on it. I learned this technique some years ago from an article in Woodworker’s Journal by Ian Kirby a master English woodworker who immigrated to the U.S.A. Some time ago. His method is quick and accurate. I hand chop mortises when I have so few to do that it isn’t worth the effort of setting up my mortiser attachment to my combination woodworking machine and/or ...

Band Saw Sled - 60 Degrees

627 days ago by Bob Simmons | 4 comments »

The 60 degree band saw sled as seen in the woodworking video is made from scrap. It took 15 minutes to build from scrap material. As you can see, it is used when cutting small wood pieces for wood inlay banding & parquetry. What kind of band saw blade is being used? ...Wood Slicer – 1/2”, skip tooth, 3-4 TPI. It provides an excellent cut. Can a 60 degree sled be used on the table saw? ...Yes, of course. In fact, my shop is equipped with one as well. Why do you use ...

Marie's Table... A Marquetry Adventure #9: A Couple of Chevalet Videos.

627 days ago by shipwright | 28 comments »

A couple of segments back Rance asked in a comment if I could do a close up of the chevalet making a cut. I gave it a try today. This is the best I can do with my cheap camera and my cheap tripod but it actually shows the cut reasonably well. The cut itself is not very good because the camera was in my line of sight and in my way. Also I normally cut further down in the vee of the jaws but the camera couldn’t see in there so I’m cutting a little higher. CAUTION: BORING !! u...

Marie's Table... A Marquetry Adventure #6: Oooooh, Nice Legs!

629 days ago by shipwright | 33 comments »

Ok, next step is to get some leg blanks out and prepare them to accept the ringed balls. This was just a matter of dimensioning some big leaf maple of which I have a nice stock and routing half holes on center in all the halves before gluing them up. Here are the pieces all ready to glue up. And here they are all glued up and fitted with the balls to check for fit and alignment. In this photo I’m using my Veritas radius-master to create a high precision curve pattern for t...
