The Slippery Slope #2: The arrival, and so much more.

11-16-2007 07:11 AM by Douglas Bordner | 31 comments »

Well it’s a red letter day here in Nebraska. My Sargent 410 showed up in the mail, and it’s rusty, finished is cracked, but it’s functional and will be ready for it’s bath soon. But this blog is about to be hijacked by an event of more personal significance, albeit a galootish event as well. Long story short, I have done a little side work on some photos for Thomas Angle, who is working up a web page for Owyhee Design, the woodworking arm of his two businesses (The ...

Spline Cutting Jig

12-31-2011 09:10 PM by Karson | 18 comments »

I have seen a few spline cutting jigs here on LumberJocks. I was trying to think how I would use such a jig. I ran across some Freud blades for a skill type saw that are 7 1/4 wide and 1/16” thick. They were made for the battery skill saws where you don’t have a lot of power. So I decided to put that blade on my table saw. I measured the max cutting height with that blade and it’s 1 5/8” so I knew that if I used 3/4” ply for the base and depending how I ...

Segmented Fail (?) -- 20% rant, 80% cry for help

11-26-2011 09:22 AM by dspahn | 14 comments »

So after watching some videos on segmented bowl construction and turning, I decided to give it a shot while I wait for my cole jaws to arrive in the mail. I actually went to a lumber place and bought a few pieces: some walnut, alder, cherry, and something with the word “african” in it… maybe mahogany, but I’m not 100% sure. And then, after I got home, whinging internally about spending $40 on an amount of wood you could maybe build a desk for a barbie doll out of, ...

Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection #7: Tuesdays with Thos. Angle

08-21-2007 04:58 PM by Douglas Bordner | 12 comments »

Off we go to the shop of Thomas Angle and his wife Carleen, in Jordan Valley, Oregon. Here he operates two businesses, Owyhee Design and Thos. Angle Saddlery. I asked Tom about the name of the wood business Owyhee. Named after the local mountains and river that brace his property, Owyhee when sounded out takes on a different slant.“In about 1812? Peter Skene Ogden came down the Snake River with a trapping brigade from the Hudson’ Bay Company post at Vancouver, Washington. He had t...

Handy tools #5: 45 degree jig

05-02-2018 11:00 PM by Dave Polaschek | 11 comments »

I used this shop-made jig while cutting dovetails for 135 degree corners (for making an octagonal box). It’s just a piece of 2×4 cut on the diagonal, then glued back together. The piece on the left above slides onto the piece on the right, and then the whole thing goes into a vise to hold the piece you’re working on at a 45 degree angle so you can saw on the level while cutting 45 degree angles in things. I started using it “head-on” but quickly realized it was use...

Sketchup Shorts #6: Compound Angle Cuts

03-17-2010 06:02 PM by PurpLev | 7 comments »

I just posted this as a comment/response on another thread but figured this might be something that others could find useful. so here goes. This short tutorial shows one way to create a compound angle cut on an edge of a 2×4. this can translate to any other situation where a compound angle is needed: I started with a 2×4, used the protractor tool, and made a guideline from one corner at a 10 degree angle: I then selected the opposite EDGE of the ‘board’ and usi...

Cleaning up a Stanley 60 1/2 Block Plane

12-28-2012 02:33 AM by Matt Nudi | 4 comments »

Well, got my first hand plane in the mail, the stanley 60 1/2 plane. It wasn’t in too bad of a shape, but definitely needed some work…. So, first step was to take it apart. Had to get out a couple punches and made one mistake which I’ll explain later… The smallest stainless steel parts weren’t in too bad of shape, pretty good actually, so all that they need was a soak and some hand scrubbing. They were put in a tub of simple green and I let them sit...

New toys from Woodworkers Expo in San Mateo

11-14-2007 05:55 PM by Nils | 4 comments »

On Saturday I went to the Woodworkers Expo in San Mateo, California. I dragged along a friend who’s done some woodworking (he’s taking a class at the Palo Alto Adult Ed, which apparently has an awesome shop) but who didn’t want to buy anything. I made up for this by spending my entire budget. I had a list of things I “needed” – and I kept pretty close to the list, although my dollar didn’t stretch as far as I’d hoped it would. Anyway, here’...

Grinder and Beltsander Setup Gauges

02-14-2018 06:59 AM by Kelly | 3 comments »

When you sharpen your own chisels and wood turning knives, you’ll find it necessary to set your grinder or sander support table to different angles for different tools. Of course, you’ll find it necessary to repeat the previously set angle, to avoid removing valuable steel from the tools, and to get consistent cuts. Setting up a tool rest of a grinder or belt sander to grind a specific angle presents a challenge because you can’t use triangle templates (see first photo), angl...

Equation to calculate angle for double bevel inlay or marquetry

01-25-2021 05:21 PM by Jeff Vicenzi | 2 comments »

The “double-bevel” inlay method is a scroll saw technique where two equally thick pieces of wood are stacked on top of one another, and cut simultaneously at an angle, with the idea that the piece cut out of the lower piece ofwood, will slide into the hole created in the upper piece of wood, thereby creating an inlay. This is often done in marquetry, using two thin veneers of wood, but it can also be done with quite thick wood (I’ve done it with 3/4” wood). I...
