Weekend Pen Box

12-06-2011 01:17 AM by Owlcroft | 18 comments »

Weekend Pen Box I got the idea for this pen box from a friend. I was at his house looking at a commemorative pen he was given for retirement and was impressed with the design of the pen box. I took some pictures and spent a couple days figuring out how I could make my own. Below are picture of my friends pen box. The box turned out to be fairly easy to build once I took a good look at it. I took a couple minutes to determine exactly how It was made; then I was ready to start. Ba...

I have contracted with a professional video photographer to shoot and record the hollowing process. We have scheduled the shoot for early next week. I will then post the video after some editing. I promise, it will be worth the wait!

DIY Cyclone Dust Collector

I tried to twist the metal sheet into a cone but just couldn’t make it look right and managed to get a small cut in my hand in the process. Ou...

Steps Cutting Board Version 2 (Two Step)

08-18-2010 03:03 AM by SPalm | 90 comments »

This is a second generation Steps cutting board made out of walnut, maple, and cherry. The first Steps board I made used a basic square with edge of maple and cherry to make it a block and a notch to do the stepping. I wanted to try to make a stepping board using the hex Tumbling Block design, and this is what I came up with. In order to make the hex do the stepping, I needed to notch all three sides, as can be seen in the Sketchup drawing. The cool thing here is that it steps in two di...

Home Made router lift #1: Home Made Router Lift

01-24-2010 04:26 PM by remsen | 14 comments »

This was my attempt at a homemade router lift. Working with a router under a table has always been frustrating to adjust to just the right spot. That’s why I decided to research doing my own. I wish I could take credit for the design, but I found a really bright guy from Canada named Matthias whose example I copied. I cannot stress enough the enormous help his site was for ideas. Let me know if anyone wants a link to his site. Here is what it looked when I first cut the plywood an...
