worksharp jig

07-06-2014 01:22 PM by Gibernak | 4 comments »

I’ve had WS 3000 a year now and I still love it. I recently bought the bar attachment and some Tormek jigs. It works amazing. But I needed a way to remove the burr on the inside of my gouges when using the SVD 185 jig. So I made these mushroom shaped tightening knob out of MDF, they lock the wheel on and I can the apply honing past to them. I made some different sizes and with different past for different sizes of gouges. They works very well. Just wanted to share the idea. ...

Homemade (DIY) BeesWax

04-13-2011 02:26 PM by dedalo | 13 comments »

I’m putting together my first cutting board, within this projext I had doubts about finishing … So far, I used cooking oil for finishing wood for cooking (food contact). Reading the blogs (here :D), in many places do not recommend this because the cooking oil (vegetable) rot, making odor, or is likely to raise small fungi or microorganisms, which is not advisable to these applications … That’s how I came across the beeswax, in other places is a cream based wax that is sold specifically ...

Wooden Planes #3: The Mouse

04-13-2014 06:07 AM by Mark Kornell | 10 comments »

I wanted plane #3 to be another block plane, but I wanted it to be a different kind of block. By this point, I’d done a lot of reading about planes in general and plane-making, and some of it was starting to sink in. Low angle, bevel-up planes sounded like a good thing because of the versatility, so I hit on the idea of making one from wood. The Internet is a wonderful resource for finding information on just about any conceivable topic. Usually, there is too much information, re...

Pottery tools #1: Modeling tools - for clay blog

03-26-2014 03:39 PM by mafe | 14 comments »

Modeling toolsfor clay I have to many things going on, one of them is the clay, I love the contradiction between the clay and the wood, one need to be cut, one so soft that it needs only a touch.In the wood we have the rigid set of rules that we try to bend to give it beauty, in the clay it’s all bend and we need to try and put some rules to make it speak. On Wednesdays I do nude model clay croquis.It’s difficult, really, two times twenty minutes for each pose, no more no le...

Turnings on the lathe #1: Oak and cherry oven rack pullers

07-07-2007 09:18 AM by oscorner | 5 comments »

Hello everyone! I wanted to share another item that I have been turning on my lathe. How many times have you are your significant other opened up the stove to check that roast or turkey baisting in the oven, only to be met by a burst of 475 degree heat in the face. Not fun, is it? Well, this is my solution to that problem. The top oven rack puller is what I call my commercial grade. It is longer and thicker than the other two. If you grab the rack from underneath you can support ...

Making Sanding Ball Covers #2: Another easier method for making sanding balls

08-15-2013 03:39 PM by Jim Jakosh | 16 comments »

Poor man’s sanding ball (or cheap man’s sanding ball) Here is a simpler way of making sanding balls without having to use that inflatable mandrel. I cut the pattern that same size as when I made the cover for the Guinevere inflatable sanding mandrel, but I just hold them on with an O ring this way. In the future. I’ll cut the flutes longer on the sandpaper covers for more material to hold onto. I began by buying a rubber ball at a dime store here in town. Actually , ...

Making Sanding Ball Covers #1: How to make replacement sanding ball covers

06-11-2013 01:02 AM by Jim Jakosh | 18 comments »

I was having a problem finding a method to easily sand out the inside business areas of wooden spoons I was making. Hand sanding was fine for the final finish but to shape sand and smooth out all the rough marks was too tedious.I saw the Guinevere Inflatable Sanding Balls on line and broke down and bought one and a set of 3 covers. The inflatable ball is $40 and the covers are 3 for $10. Man was that the answer to that spoon sanding. I did 16 of them in less than and hour !!!!!!!!I tore up on...

Building a Tripod #1: Making the legs

06-07-2012 02:17 AM by dakremer | 8 comments »

I’m hoping this is going to be self explanatory. I will add a few comments here and there! Enjoy….. First I cut the half circles with a router. Each stick of wood is 1” X 1/2”. That way when joined together I’ll have a 1” X 1” square…. Next I cut a slot down the middle with a 1/4” straight bit on the router table…. Now to round the corners over….again using the router table….. The...
