Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #1: The Jigs

10-04-2008 01:36 AM by lew | 12 comments »

I have had so many positive comments and feedback on the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin. Thank you for all of them. Many LumberJocks asked for instructions on how they are made- so here goes. I am a fan of “Cook Book” style instructions so if I miss any details, please let me know and I will try to flesh them out. I thought it best to start with the jigs I used to prepare the turning blanks. Please note that I always over engineer everything and hardly ever see the obvious or the easy...

MDF Spline Cutting Sled #1: The Sketchup Chronicles

03-19-2011 07:43 PM by Brad_Nailor | 17 comments »

I was flipping through a catalog the other day and happened upon a spline cutting sled that this company was selling. I really liked the design of it, so I went on their website and learned all about it, watched videos etc. The only problem was, I didn’t want to pay the (what I thought was) high price for something that I could probably make myself…not to mention I’m broke, and cheap, and have enough scrap materiel’s lying around that I can make it almost for free. I...

Celtic Knot Pens #1: One way to do it

09-06-2007 04:24 PM by Gary | 16 comments »

This was requested from multiple sites, so I did one for everybody. Here’s some photos of my process;I only had enough time to do a two-ring knot, but it’sall the same to make a four-ring knot accurately if you follow these steps. This shows the miter sled, the length of contrasting wood for the slices, and the bloodwood blank I’m going to use. I’ve already squared the blank so that all four sides are the same size.I randomly pick a side and mark it 1.Side 2 i...

Spiral End Mallet #1: The Lay-Out

08-14-2009 10:47 PM by Kent Shepherd | 12 comments »

Thanks for your interest in my new Spiral-End Mallet, based on the Lazy Larry Spiral Cheese Boards, by degoose. Obviously with the small size of the pieces, the band saw jig Larry uses wouldn’t work. This is how I adapted his GREAT idea for something a little different.The first step is to make the medallion that is inlayed in the end of the mallet. (Yes it is inlayed—-do you think I’m totally nuts?) If you are looking for a fast, easy project, this may not be it, but the en...

Bandsaw Walking Stick

04-04-2010 03:33 AM by wdkits1 | 16 comments »

LOML wanted me to make her a new walking stick. Had to be a minimum of 44” long but my lathe can only take stock 40” plus she wanted it made from a couple of different woods and it had to taper from 1 1/4”- 1”.Using what I had learned from making my pen blank jig I went ahead and made a new jig for making round blanks using my bandsaw. The jig had to be capable of holding the blank securely on the centers but at the same time allowing the blank to be rotated as it was...

Introducing Template Tom the name I was given by my students when giving lessons on the use of the router at the Association for the Blind woodworking group. I was asked to look after for a year after I had been doing some volunteer work for three years previous. The best Class I have ever taught. Average age of the group was 36-82 years of age. A little back ground to consider as it helps to know ‘Who is making such a post’ I began an apprenticeship in Carpentry and Joinery wa...

The Saga Continues #6: The Wonderful World of Jigs - according to Fred

04-27-2007 05:22 AM by fred | 18 comments »

I love making jigs. It is a great sense of confidence and actually takes longer to make them then it does to use them. I like to build things in the shop and making jigs is fun. I want to share some of them with you. Yes, I know there is a forum for jigs, but it has been 36 days since anyone posted in it. My first jig was a finger joint jig. On my recent making of a jewelry box I made a hinge mortising jig. When I was making cabinet for the dining room and the entertainme...
