How I Make a Lazy Susan

10-01-2008 05:36 PM by WoodMosaics | 33 comments »

Now before I get started on this little demonstration of how I do it, let me caution you on a couple things. IF you try anything like this, take the plate that your saw blade comes up through and close that hole completely up with a thin piece of wood. Make sure it is even with the top, with no gaps and no lips to catch the pieces. You want it smooth. Then with a “Hollow ground plywood blade” come up from the bottom so you have no gap between the blade and the wood. You may have to do this a ...

Lazy Susan

12-05-2008 05:01 AM by Grumpy | 15 comments »

This project had more hickups than an old drunk in the park but thanks to three of my buddies who gave some excellent advice I was able to straighten (I do mean straighten) things out. Our Kitchen table is an 8 seater. Reaching items in the middle was a bit of a nuisance unless you stood up. A lazy Susan was the answer, but what size?.I drew the whole thing on sketchup but that did not give a satisfactory idea of proportion. I then cut two 8mm (5/16”) plywood templates, a 500mm & 60...

Open weave Lazy Larry #4: The glue up

07-19-2011 10:46 PM by degoose | 15 comments »

Here you will see the steps in the glue up of the weave strips… The strips are ready for assembly.. After applying glue to the various surfaces, I assemble the 5 pieces in order and secure with blue painters tape.. this is easy to remove later… While just using tape can be enough, I like to clamp between two cauls to ensure that the width of the piece remains constant along the entire length.. and it aids by applying even pressure on the strips being glued..As each set is...

All in One Jig Part 1 #1: Diamonds and Triangles

10-02-2009 03:28 AM by dustbunny | 43 comments »

After posting the quilted lazy susan project, http://lumberjocks.com/projects/21623, many of you said you would like to see the jig for this project. I set out immediately to upgrade the jig. There were cuts I wanted to incorporate into this jig, and my original was warping and needed repair anyway. So here it is – 24” X 33” I am pretty proud of this jig, not only because I made it, but because the cuts made from this jig are right on the money. The first ...

No explanation required… just watch.. Here is the dry fit after all the pieces have been cut… I did not show the cutting of the background Huon Pine peices .. I figure you know how this was done…. all cut at the first stop.. and again keeping them in order for grain flow…

Open weave Lazy Larry #8: The glue up

08-03-2011 08:38 AM by degoose | 11 comments »

Got out nice and early this morning… and here is the glue up video you have all been waiting for … The whole video is actually only 9 minutes long… intro and ending included… the glue up took around 8 minutes and a further couple to fit and adjust the clamps.. So a realistic total of under 10 minutes… not too shabby…

Open weave Lazy Larry #5: Setting up for cross cutting.

07-21-2011 02:34 AM by degoose | 7 comments »

To start we need to ensure the blade of the table saw is at 90 degrees.. for this I use a Wixey digital angle finder.. Fortunately I have an Incra Mitre Express and Mitre 1000 se…. turns a normal table saw into a sliding saw… and oh so accurate … You will notice the Magswitch magnets being used as stops…this will become clearer when you watch the video…. just lay the background strip along the blade of the table saw and place the magnet to act as a stopR...

Open weave Lazy Larry #3: Thin strip ripping...

07-19-2011 11:27 AM by degoose | 10 comments »

Well, all the timber is now dressed and ready to have some strips cut… I use the Incra TSLS 32 fence system and this makes thin strip ripping a breeze.. Note the feather board to the left of the table… For the first cut I set the blade to shave the rough edge… then set the hairline cursor to a starting position… I chose to use 4 on the auxiliary scale purely as a reference point..The cursor is then move 1/4 inch on the scale… This will give a strip 1/...
