How to make a Wild 'n' Crazy two-tone board

09-27-2010 10:09 PM by Mary Anne | 33 comments »

Sometimes the finished project looks harder to make than it really is. By request, here is a quick tutorial on making a two-tone pattern board. All you need is a bandsaw… or maybe a scroll saw. Start with two boards of contrasting woods squared and surfaced on all sides. ——Use double-sided tape to align and stack them. (carpet tape works great) ——- Cut random curvy lines through both pieces on the bandsaw. This was my first test of the Carter S...

08-31-2010 06:50 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 23 comments »

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options Turning on the lathe is one of the most relaxing and enjoyable parts of woodworking. Every time I turn I ask myself, “Why don’t I do this more often??” I still don’t have an answer to that. But recently, I had the opportunity to turn a cool item for a charity event. My friend Shawn was creating unique auctions for a Muscular Dystrophy charity event. One of those auctions was for a vampire...

Unique Father's Day Gift

06-20-2010 07:45 PM by ChuckV | 14 comments »

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads! This past winter, we were at Old Sturbridge Village. We saw a demonstration of a spill plane. My young sons were fascinated by this tool. They kept it in mind and with the help of my wife, they found a spill plane at Lee Valley. This is from the description at LV:Before matches became widely available in the 1860s, long, coiled wood shavings known as spills were used to transfer a flame from one location to another, such as from a fireplace to ...

Segmented basket plates

06-20-2010 04:33 AM by tomd | 9 comments »

This is my first blog so I barely known what I’m doing so patience is appreciated. This is in answer to how I did the segmented basket plates. The plate is made up of three layers of segmented discs. The first is 12 segments, the second and third are 24 segments, as shown. http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg166/TomD5895/Garden/illusionbuild001.jpg http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg166/TomD5895/Garden/illusionbuild008.jpg Now the three layers are glued together with a waste...

Drunken Cutting Boards #2: Smooth Flowing Drunken Checker board

09-21-2009 03:49 AM by Porosky | 15 comments »

So having read part #1 I’ll complete the second variation of the Drunken checker board pattern. The process is basically the same except for one critical part and is as follows. Start again by taping two blanks together. This time In stead of making opposing S cuts I’ll follow the S pattern with each cut. (I get a little sloppy, but it works out OK). Follow the Part #1 procedure. CRITICAL PART! This step creates the difference between the pattern in part one ...

Puzzles - A Gift Meant To Be Regifted - How To

05-11-2010 02:12 AM by DonW | 3 comments »

Several LJs have asked for a blog entry sharing how I made the mini-puzzles that I use to encourage “re-gifting”. They are really very easy to do for those comfortable with using a scroll saw. Here are the steps… 1. Select the subject of your puzzle. I use business card sized cards that are available at Christian bookstores. They are bright, colorful and have inspiring messages. However, you could do the same project with sports or non-sports trading cards, etc. They woul...
