Homemade router milling machine ready to launch for others to enjoy.

02-08-2013 02:28 AM by Mark55 | 8 comments »

I have posted my machine on here a couple times and kept promising that I was going to get it to the point where I would have plans ready for it. This has turned out to be a very daunting task . At first glance of the machine it does not look too overwhelming. But, when you break it down there are many many parts and details to make this thing work the way it does. Before I go any farther though there is one person on here I want to thank for all the help . I would not have gotten this far wi...

Snakes Pattern in Solid Wood #1: The Challenge of the Snakes

05-30-2010 08:24 PM by BritBoxmaker | 19 comments »

After posting the ‘Pattern of Four’ aka ‘Snakes’ box it occurred to me that it must be able to be done in solid wood, not just veneer. Another challenge methinks. Heres the pattern I think this can be reduced to its simplest components. Two types of square; one made up of four triangles and the other a simple square with sides half the length of the first. Each individual snake pattern is made up of four triangles and one square. Trust me I’ve seen the patterns ...

006: pallet wood cutting board #4: rounding over, sanding, and finishing

03-31-2010 09:26 AM by Gary Fixler | 13 comments »

I decided it would probably be boring to show each step from the previous ‘milling everything flat and square’ post, to the final board, so here’s the final board, all finished: It is 6-3/4”x8-5/8” and a little over 1.75” thick. Or, you know, about the size of the US hardcover edition of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” though the book is a little less than an inch taller in the longest dimension. Note the butcher’s block c...

My largest chopping board yet. #5: Let the sanding begin.

01-31-2012 12:30 PM by degoose | 24 comments »

The board is all assembled, glued and out of the clamps for a day… off to the drum sander to true up both surfaces…[there is always a little slip] and bottom. This is done slowly avoiding any burning of the endgrain.. which will require more sanding to remove.. Then begins the multi steps of Random Orbital Sanding… from 80 grit through 100, 120, 150 and 220. Lastly a burnish with 1500… optional. Here we are after the first sanding with 80 grit̷...

Tight Weave the Down and Dirty

08-08-2010 07:16 PM by dustbunny | 15 comments »

Several people asked me to blog the process of the tight weave board.The original tight weave board was posted by degoose here as a blog. Larry Rocks !! I don’t actually have one to be made from the start right now, so I pieced together what I have to try to illustrate the process. In some places you will have to use a little bit of imagination, but I think it will be clear. Okay, the key to the weave or the tight weave boards is-1. lumber should be square2. cuts must be accurate3...

Close to the final step! The cutting board was sanded down to about 220 grit using an orbital sander. After sanding the board was cleaned off with mineral spirits. Finish (50/50 salad bowl finish and mineral spirits) was applied in three coats. 1. Applied a heavy coat till cutting board pulled the finish through to the bottom. Waited 24 hours2. Applied a second lighter coat. Waited 24 hours Light sanding with 400 grit.3. Applied the third coat This picture was taken just a...

Flip-up Cutting Board #1: Ideas, Designs

02-17-2010 08:32 AM by Broooklyn | 4 comments »

In my kitchen, we are a cramped for counter space so I want to make a flip up cutting-board. The flip-up part would be attached to the side of our “island” which is 3/4” particle board. I’ll have some kind of leg or fold-out-triangle to support the cutting board when it’s up. I have access to the other side of the particleboard, so I could use nuts/bolts as opposed to anchors/screws. I will probably use a wood backer there for extra support as TopamaxSurvivor su...

End Grain Cutting Board LJ Class 006 #15: Thus endeth the lesson.

07-13-2011 12:20 AM by degoose | 10 comments »

As the finishing touch to the boards of the class… I have counter-bored holes at each corner. The black rubber feet are attached with stainless steel screws.. The counter bore will stop the rubber feet from dragging the screws out if it is moved sideways… Well I am glad that this is finally finished… I know it took what seems an eternity and I do appreciate those who followed along… I have already had two photos of finished boards sent and I would like all tho...
