From board to bowl #1: 12" Scroll Saw Bowl Blank

01-21-2011 03:21 AM by SASmith | 20 comments »

This blog will show how I make a 12” bowl blank from 1 BF of lumber. Cut a 12”x12”x3/4” square and draw an X from corner to corner to find the middle. Using a compass draw a circle in the middle of the board the size you want the bottom of the bowl to be. In this case around 4”. Draw concentric circles spaced the thickness of the board (in this case 3/4”) Drill 1/8” holes at 45 degrees on the 4 inner circles to insert a scroll saw blad...

Incra Double Dovetail Project #7: Finishing and Finished!

11-10-2011 05:11 PM by SPHinTampa | 2 comments »

I have been sanding as the project progressed so I am able to hand sand 180 grit and then 220 grit. I then finish with three coats of rub on poly. Let the piece sit for a couple of weeks to wait for the finish to fully cure and then rub out any dust nubs with 0000 steel wool. Finally, I use my Beall Buffing system to buff out the finish. Use the red tripoli finish first, followed by white diamond compound and finally wax. To be honest, I should have sanded to 320 to really se...

Fibonacci gauge

Here is an easy to make Sanding/Radius Jig to fit the Rigid oscillating spindle sander Model # EB44241. I’m building this jig out of re-purposed material, a handful of hardware and a drill press turned knob so the cost to make this jig is actually on a couple of dollars (Frugal Craftsman).

Lasers in woodworking. #7: Jim Beam anyone?

I got a sample barrel last Friday… but only found some time this morning to engrave the three logos… Took the barrel back down and was told that the job was more than acceptable and that it would be overnight expressed to Sydney… Now have to wait for final approval… It looks like the initial order will be for 50 barrels …that is 150 logos… keep me busy for sure… The barrel I got was already finished so I had to engrave through masking tape..T...
