Calling all Central Florida Woodworkers #1: Let's start something in Volusia County!

09-11-2013 08:54 PM by emetric | 11 comments »

Ok so while scouring the internet for all things woodworking, I noticed that there are clubs all over but nothing here in Volusia County. I have inquired about clubs with no success, last year someone posted something about a possible club but I got no response to my inquiry. I would really like to get this going, I am not asking for money or anything like that just looking to build a community of like minded folks. I really enjoy the fellowship and vast resources of this site. I would li...

Ribbon and Bow Box Techniques

03-19-2013 03:30 PM by Lenny | 22 comments »

Enough people have asked me how the Bow Boxes I made and posted were crafted that I figured a blog was warranted. My post is here “Bow Box”: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/68845. I have seen others make the boxes and thought you might like to see different interpretations of them. bigogre has done several. Here is one of his: “Box”: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/73998. moonls recently posted one with wonderful banding in the ribbons and bow. See it “here...

Wooden Watch (Semi-tutorial)

01-25-2013 11:18 PM by Dan | 9 comments »

So after making my wooden bracelets, I decided I wanted to use the same method to make a watch. Due to the materials I had at hand, I ended up using a different method to make the watch than I did the bracelets. 1. Draw up a pattern. (I used CORELDraw to design mine) 2. Select Material – I went with 1/4” thick red oak flatstock. 3. Trace or use spray adhesive to attach pattern to blanks. 4. Drill link holes (I clamped mine between 2 1/2” pieces to make easier to...

Tap and Screw Jig Tutorial #2: Starting the Tap

01-18-2012 06:27 AM by CartersWhittling | 33 comments »

Hello. I have finally put out the second installment of the tutorial. I had to break up the video into two sections in order to fit it onto youtube. In this part I begin work on the tap by making the guide block. The lumber you want to use for the guide should be a hardwood at least 2” thick. Depending on the size of screw you will be making the block can be 3” – 6” wide. It only needs to be surface on one face and one edge. Then drill the hole for the tap dowel ...

Custom Knife Blocks #3: Lots of glue-ups

11-06-2011 05:31 PM by wdkits1 | 1 comment »

One of the biggest challenges of making 25 of anything is being consistent with all of the measurements and finding ways to do glue-ups efficiently. The sides of the blocks all have to be the same size on the top dimension so when the fronts are attached everything matches up. I found out that while doing the jointing on the angled pieces of the sides, the tips of the pieces would bow slightly which meant that a little work was necessary to get all 5 pieces to fit properly. A few pas...

Box Building #3: Photography Light Box

08-12-2011 05:22 PM by Kent Shepherd | 12 comments »

I posted one of my boxes earlier in the week and promised I would blog my light box.If you have researched this you will know I obviously did not come up with this idea. In fact, I think there are others on Ljs. This is simply my version. I am a woodworker, not a photographer, so take all this with a grain of salt. As I develop the box further, I will add to the blog. I have not done anything yet I didn’t tweak over time, so why change now, huh! It’s called design evolution, not f...

Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #7: Yet Another Update

07-12-2011 06:39 PM by lew | 20 comments »

Thought I would add a couple of additional “discoveries” on making these rolling pins. One of my obvious problems is that I always over think or over engineer everything. The Trim Jig is one of those examples. It now hangs, useless, along with so many other jigs that I have abandoned for a better way. Trimming the glued up inserts is easier, faster and less hassle if done on the band saw. No jig is require and the table saw blade height does not have to be changed between opera...
