Small Projects #41: Crosses -- More Easter Gifts -- Rosewood, Zebrawood, Cherry, Yellowheart, Purpleheart

03-08-2021 03:09 AM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

This was an Easter gift for a nice little old Italian widow I know. It came out so well I had to make another one for SWMBO. Then another for a neighbor and another … six so far! Rosewood and zebrawood The “standard” proportions are that the cross bar is half the height, centered 1/4 of the way down. The material was ripped to 1-1/2”, resawn on the TS to 3/4” thick and then cut to length, 15” and 7-1/2”. This used over 22-3/4” of a 24&#...

A Project for March #1: Back story, and a start up.

03-06-2021 02:09 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Had a stack of “Leftovers” from the last project….mainly Ash.. Thought about resawing all this down….keeping the better parts at 1/2” thick….but.. Not going to be easy… Figured I could set the rip fence to 2-1/2”.. And avoid the worst of the defects… (Firewood) The 1×2s ? Hmmm, may take some careful cutting….Reset the tablesaw….Zero Clearance Overly, fence 1/2” away from the blade…..blade a...

Small Projects #40: Easter Shrine

02-28-2021 03:31 AM by Madmark2 | 2 comments »

Friend of SWMBO is nice older lady who is quite devout. Thought this would make a nice gift for Easter. Bought a nice 9” tall statue of Jesus and wanted to put it in a fancy box suitable for table display. I just got the Fast-Joint Mini set up and dialed in. This was going to be a test of the jig. 9” H x 3” W x 2” D statuette with customized engraved plate. Easter colors are purple and yellow and it just so happens I just got some yellow heart and I inventory ...

Bandsaw Outfeed Table

02-12-2021 08:30 PM by Bstrom | 9 comments »

Been meaning to make this for a while to better handle rough stock during resaw. Finally broke down and got it done – it’s not permanently mounted. Uses a pair of clamps to secure it to the back rail of the Grizzly fence. Can be moved along the table to position. Measures 12” wide and 24” long. Please let me know what you think.

Small Projects #36: Caliper Storage box

01-26-2021 12:23 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Have a nice 8” digital caliper for 8 or so years. After much use the plastic clamshell case’s hinge started to fail and the case was cracking after a drop or two (oopsies). With nothing much else on my plate while waiting on router toys, I built this little replacement case for my caliper. Caliper Storage box Lid lock requires thin kerf blade for .093” lexan. The box is 12-1/2” x 4-3/8” x 1-1/2” with a 1” interior clearance. I used a ni...

Small Projects #35: Bill Press

01-10-2021 10:12 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

SWMBO ask for place to keep monies flat and orderly ahead of bank day. Had a chunk of purpleheart kicking around and made this box. Purpleheart cash keeper The box is 1/4” stock except for the weight which is full 15/16”. The full width stock was sanded to make the finger curve so both sides would be exact copies after resawing. I have about a 5/32” thick center cut with an odd semicircle cutout. The half moon grip was cut from a piece of scrap mahogany using my pla...

Opinion: Budget resaw - Get a 1 HP 14 inch saw

10-13-2020 12:12 AM by Richard | 1 comment »

If you want to resaw, spend $400 and get a 1 HP saw. Resist the temptation to “save” $115 by “trying” a 1/3 HP saw. (Prices in effect Oct 2020) Resawing is the cutting of boards into even thinner boards, or at the limits into cuts thin enough to use for veneers. If you’re looking to start resawing, you’re going to need a band saw, and if your budget is tight, you don’t have a lot of options. I’ve tried two inexpensive floorstanding saws: a 10 inch Wen saw (3962; $28...

Small Projects #26: Purpleheart Leftovers Box

04-13-2020 04:13 AM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

Made the better half a 6×6 purpleheart box the other day out of 1/4” resawn 1×6. I had the scant middle of the two sided resaw left over. Its saw burned and 5-3/4” square and thickness varies all over the place around .200”.The middle slice of a double sided resaw. Lemme see if I’m I can make anything useful out of this I think, and so a project began.2-13/16” square and half of that high. Cut the big square into four smaller squares. Then ripped ...

Small Projects #3: Cherry Insulin box

01-27-2020 12:33 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

As I diabetic I need vials of insulin, needles and alcohol pads to be handy at all times especially when traveling. This little cherry tote box is 3” x 3” x 7” out of resawn 1/4” stock. It holds two vials of insulin, eight syringes and a good supply of alcohol pads. I actually made this in 2016 and its held up well. My laser engraver was working then and I engraved the lid to suggest the contents. The sliding lid has what I like to call a ‘perfect’ fi...
