Yin Yang centerpiece / serving boards #3: flush trim success

01-19-2021 04:24 AM by BillGo | 0 comments »

I set out today to use the spare glue ups to try and address as many of the four issues identified in the last post. Because I was starting with the glue ups I already had, I could not address the grain orientation issue, but i could try to address the other three issues: the router bit, the prioritization of lines to flush trim approach, and the direction of cut. The bit: This is the Whiteside UDC9112 compression flush trim bit. I kept the “bite size” about the same to be c...

Yin Yang centerpiece / serving boards #2: flush trim failures

01-18-2021 05:28 AM by BillGo | 3 comments »

Overnight, I glued up two panels I would use for the yin/yang pieces. I made one of maple and one of walnut, both 21” square. This would give me enough wood to make two of the centerpieces… When I looked at the pattern to make one, there was so much waste, it was only slightly more wood to make two. I took the squares and using the templates, traced them out on the bg squares with a little space around them so I could cut them apart with the band saw. I should have taken more p...

Yin Yang centerpiece / serving boards #1: template creation

01-17-2021 02:42 AM by BillGo | 0 comments »

I have a friend that asked for help making a Yin Yang centerpiece. The ask was for two pieces made from light and dark wood that fit together to make a centerpiece 20” in diameter, with two 4” holes that hold candle jars. They want two separate pieces that can be used as wood serving boards, so they need to have a food safe finish. Wood:I am thinking walnut and maple, as those are good for serving boards with their tight grains, so they are easy to clean and not susceptible to ...

Finally! I got around to editing a video Finally! It’s the last one of the series on how to build a fancy root vegetable bin, aka, potato bin. Life is so busy with other things that this got put off over and over again. It’s done now, and, if I may say so myself, is beautiful.

Forge table #7: Undercarriage and attaching the legs

01-09-2021 05:19 PM by Dave Polaschek | 14 comments »

I did some work to build the undercarriage. I couldn’t decide whether I wanted the stretchers to cross over or meet in a hub, but when I test fit things, it became clear I couldn’t have them cross without bending them. So I turned a hub (from a scrap of salt cedar) for the four stretchers to meet in and bored a couple holes through it. Unfortunately, I didn’t think that the holes wouldn’t meet at right angles, but since the table-top is a rectangle, they don’t. Oh well. As Bandit sa...

Shop stuff #200: Part 10 of the potato bin series...finally

12-05-2020 12:28 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Yes, I actually took the time to get back at editing and putting together a video. It is not my best performing series, but this episode uses some pretty special wood that really makes the unit pop! Thanks for tuning in and commenting. Oh, and I’ve given up on how to figure out how to embed video. Lumberjocks just seems to want to make it impossible.

One More Guitar #11: Adding the binding and purfling

11-12-2020 10:34 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 0 comments »

After the sound board and back are in place, binding is added to the edges to finish them. Also purfling (the stripes) are added at the same time. In this video the edges are routed with a palm router and the bindings are heat formed and glued in place..

Milled Lumber #1: Dealing with walnut slabs

11-10-2020 01:56 PM by rmant | 2 comments »

I recently had a huge walnut tree milled into 12 and 8/4 slabs x 10’x 24” . They are stickered and stacked in the shade. The question: Would you spray the wood for bugs? If so, what would you use? Thanks Rick Mantell
