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...

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...

The shop #5: jigs jigs jigs

03-20-2008 02:48 AM by scottb | 12 comments »

This morning I finally got around to making a sled for my tablesaw. Thanks Niki! great plans. easier to follow than the 2 or 3 others I’d been eyeing, but never got around to making. I expected this to take all morning – and despite spending a LOT of time trying to get a perfect fit with the runners everything went together quite well. I even added a box (half of a hexagonal column wrap) on the back as an added safety measure. Never mind the arrow I drew on, that was a remi...

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...

Limbert Lamp Table - Stickley #240 #3: Jigs & Dry Fit

08-01-2009 05:38 AM by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

Following TreeFrog as closely as possible, I cut out the blanks for the sides. I cheated a tad and used the wedges from the prototype to establish the tapers on the sides. One one side, I used one wedge, on the second side, I had to use both to compensate for the previous taper. These were cut with the blade at 90 degrees to the table saw to give me a point of reference when I’m cutting the miters. I created the jigs to hold the sides stable while I cut them at a 44 degree mit...

Toilet bolts (1/4” & 5/16”), T-Nuts, scrap wood wheels cut with circle cutter on a bandsaw, caps off of Ocean Spray Juice jugs, and a bit o hot glue, oh, and I use a 1/2” picture hanger router bit to cut the slots for the toilet bolts, (have to hit em on the grinder for just a bit to fit), and voila…... way affordable knobs for jigs, etc…

My Shop #1: Router Sled

04-09-2010 06:58 PM by Kent Shepherd | 3 comments »

Last summer I posted this project—-My Router Table Sledhttp://lumberjocks.com/projects/17463It just hit me, I never really showed how the jig could be used. Here is a practical application.I was actually building another jig and needed to slot some small pieces for adjustments. I posted a similar jig last week. I needed another. This one is tweaked a bit. I planed down a scrap of Mahogany I had laying around. (Sorry—no Bubinga) The Mahogany matched my sled ——if you&...
