Small Projects #52: Steampunk Unity Weather Station Done!

08-11-2021 11:53 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

This started out as an offshoot of my humidor project. I buy in pairs and so I had a spare hygrometer. An idea of a weather station began to form. Unity Weather Station, on top of a table stereo, on top of an Edison Phonograph. Wax to Bluetooth in one century. I call it the “unity” box because of the variety of woods: White (maple) Black (wenge) Brown (walnut) Red (purpleheart) Yellow (yellowheart) I found a $12 LED module with time, indoor temp, outdoor temp...

Small Projects #47: Walnut and Spanish Humidor with Hydrometer & C° gauge

05-24-2021 02:39 AM by Madmark2 | 7 comments »

Used to smoke cigars, but after my 3rd MI, 4th stent & pacemaker its mostly a memory. Never smoked enough to make buying a box of cigars worthwhile but have always wanted a humidor. Completed project. Design:I found hydrometer’s for cheap at Walmart and bought a couple. 1-3/4” x 1” LCD hydrometer with C° indicator. I bought some Spanish cedar and I have some walnut on hand and so a plan was born. I smoked Panatellas and they’re 7” to 7”-1...

Small Projects #46: Prism Stand

05-07-2021 03:46 AM by Madmark2 | 8 comments »

Bought SWMBO a crystal equilateral prism. Its 8” by 1-3/8” on each side. 8” crystal equilateral prism. Unfortunately it didn’t come with a stand or any way of mounting it. We have cats so just sitting it on the window sill will wind up with it broken on the tile floor. Clearly a stand is needed. To get a prism to refract the light you need to hold it at just the right angle. So the stand needs to let the prism rotate to the proper angle for optimum effect. ...

Small Projects #45: Cat proof screen porch

05-04-2021 02:41 AM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

The screen porch screens have seen better days. They’re at least 15 years old and showing their age. Where we live in fla development is displacing natural habitat of all sorts of critters — including what appears to be Florida panthers. Big tawny cats are regularly spotted in this area and last fall one of our kitties got out and met an untimely end. Since then the porch has been off limits for both kitties and puppies. Seeing the cats longing for the outside got me thinkin...

Equation to calculate angle for double bevel inlay or marquetry

01-25-2021 05:21 PM by Jeff Vicenzi | 2 comments »

The “double-bevel” inlay method is a scroll saw technique where two equally thick pieces of wood are stacked on top of one another, and cut simultaneously at an angle, with the idea that the piece cut out of the lower piece ofwood, will slide into the hole created in the upper piece of wood, thereby creating an inlay. This is often done in marquetry, using two thin veneers of wood, but it can also be done with quite thick wood (I’ve done it with 3/4” wood). I...

Boxes from Red Cedar #4: From scraps to a tray

12-23-2020 03:38 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

As I guess the sides of this tray make it a box…sort of? Sorted through the leftovers….managed to find three decent looking ones….none were bowed…just the T&G edges were not the best looking..or ..locking. Tablesaw to rip those off. Was trying for a 9” x 12” panel… This was so much fun to do…..first blue clamp wanted to pop the 3 slats up into a curvy thingy….started to add the cauls, to keep things close to flat….....

Boxes from Red Cedar #2: Box #2, Dovetail version

12-18-2020 04:24 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok…wasn’t real happy with the Box/Finger joints….decide to try through dovetails instead….I was going to use that old Scroll saw…but… results weren’t the best….would prefer something like this.. Got out the Usual Suspects… There is something about that circled tool? The pointy end, actually? Seems that angled cut matches what angle I use for dovetails….makes layouts a lot easier. However, this is an older model…...

23" jitterbug lure, wall hanger #10: Making the eyeballs.

10-13-2020 12:41 AM by grosa | 2 comments »

Here is a picture of me holding the lure so you guys get an idea how big this jitterbug lure is. Making the eyeball i took some scrap Beech wood, squared it up and put it on the lath. Turned it to 2” diameter. Next i need to make a jig to hold the router over this turning. I start with some plywood cut roughly to size. A bottomand two sides. The bottom i mark out a square to fit the turning base. Next i cut out the square on the scroll saw. Check the fit. Next i cut t...
