Optimal Cutting with minimum scrap - iPad app

I recently finished working on a cutting algorithm app for the iPad and iPhone called Smart Cutter, and wanted to share the app with every one hoping get some feedback from carpenters and wood workers. Smart Cutter finds the maximum number of small pieces cut from a larger sheet of paper with minimum scrap. It employs a state of the art algorithm to generate the maximum number of small pieces cut from a larger sheet of paper, wood, cloth or any other material, with minimum waste. Whether y...

YAR! - Yet Another Roubo #4: Finishing up

01-23-2013 12:43 AM by Douglas | 17 comments »

Since last post, I was able to get some time to finish up almost the whole thing. First, I got to finish and fit the face vise. For that, and for all the “fixtures” (the face vise chop &pin board, the sliding deadman, the end cap, and wagon chop) I used a nice piece of 8/4 ash. I’d never worked with ash before, and I really love how it works. Passing over it with a smoother plane gets it silky smooth. For the face vise, I went with the Lee Valley screw hardware, as...

02-20-2013 05:22 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 17 comments »

This Week I show you how to make a folding out feed table for your table saw. This design was based after an article and plan found in a 2009 issue of Woodworker’s Journal Magazine. Originally the plan was designed for a Cabinet saw with a Biesemeyer Fence System, so I had to make some slight modifications for my Porter Cable Saw. In this 3 part video series I show you a step by step on building this project as well as talk about the modifications I had to make. The Article and plans ca...

Making of a cinderella carriage bed #1: Wagon wheels

02-03-2013 02:24 PM by grosa | 16 comments »

This is what the completed bed will look like. These are the spokes for the 48” back wheels. This is the rim for the front wheels. These are the front wheels. Front and back wheels. The radius at the bottom of the spokes was cut on the table saw by locking down the miter gauge and pushing the wood into the blade from the side and it was done in 4 passes. We used an 8” dado blade. This is the back of the wheel where the axle will go into Ne...
