  1. Dog Ramp

    I built this for a friend whose dog had really bad hips. He wanted the dog to be able to get on the bed (a high bed) and not have to jump. There is also storage under the ramp for whatever. It was a little large but it was what they wanted and it was useful. It is made from red oak and oak...
  2. 3. Wheel of fortune for Ema.

    Project assignment in school was easy - do a quiz, with random question selection. It could be a dice roll, draw the numbers written on paper from the bag, even app on mobile phone availabe for free… but wheeeeeel, real wooden wheel - that was a challenge for kids. Kids decided to have wheel on...
  3. Geometry WHAT???

    First and foremost, this is the first time I used geometry in oh…....... at least a decade??? Nothing too special about this guy, except that this is the piece of wood that cracked my face shield. I figured if I gave up on it then the wood wins! I'm pretty happy to say I put that piece of...

    Main board made of walnut, 41cm diameter, 23mm thick, finish food friendly wood oil. Bottom plate - 18mm playwood, 20cm diameter, finish 2 coats of spray laquer. Rotating mechanisam from E-Bay. I cut circles on bandsaw jig.
  5. Projects Mini Tetrahedral Tensegrity Table

    I've been fascinated by tensegrity structures, particularly tables, since I first encountered them on the web. I've also seen tensegrity projects here on LumberJocks. At first glance, they look impossible, but they make sense after you study them for awhile. In a nutshell, tensegrity tables are...
  6. 8 wood accent tables, stump stools, Stoobles

    These seem to be selling well, so I have upped production on them! All maple, 40 to 70 lbs, 18 to 21 tall with 12" tops. Spar urethane finish, 69.00 - 79.00
  7. Geometry Cutting Board High School Project

    This is my first example of a project for the Woodshop Geometry curriculum that I am working on. I want to blend woodworking with geometry and physics. Bringing woodshop back to schools and integrating it with core classes to help make learning hands, bring the art of woodworking back, and not...
  8. Dodecahedron Lamp

    My wife and I are both technically-oriented (she's a recovering physicist, I'm an ex-engineer) so we wanted something very geometric for our dining room table…nothing frilly or fancy. She saw something like this in a magazine for $400…which wasn't in the budget. She asked if I could make...
  9. It's not my fault! (Geometric Right Angle Guage)

    It's not my fault ;-). Dusty 56 started it. Then Jaykaypur did it. And finally JR45 did it too. I just couldn't help myself … (sob) Really though, I have had a bit to say on Dusty56's and JR45's posts about this guage being based on a theorem of circle geometry (an angle inscribed in a...
  10. Woodworking Skill Share
    I messed around with this long enough to find a compound bevel that works. My question is why does it work? I want to know the logic behind why 33.9 degrees allows these pieces to come together. I understand the 45 degree piece of this compound bevel, and in my head I imagined somewhere near...

    Does anyone know where I can find a hexagon scale calculator? I am building a hexagon frame with 2 short sides and 4 long sides. All angles are 120.

    I'm looking for references on the application of practical geometry in woodworking and architecture. Does anyone have any good references to suggest? Thanks, Jeff

    New Year...New Hobby I have been known to take up a hobby or 37. At 42, on the cusp of 43, and well into the 'balding' years, I have decided that, in lieu of a midlife crisis, I would take up woodworking. Don't get me wrong, a new car and a 27 year old with huge, firm, hands would be wonderful...

    Phi (Golden Ratio) Rule (Ruler, Scale, etc.) Hi, I've been intrigued with the Golden Ratio (Golden Rectangle, Golden Section, Golden Mean etc.) for some time, and I'm getting ready to make a set of Golden Ratio (or Fibonacci) Dividers to assist in design and layout of some projects I'm...

    design considerations - blades OK, so I broke the teeth of my japanese saw and it's time I build a replacement saw. I always wanted to build a frame saw as the design and capabilities of such saw seem to outmatch any other saw type. It is tight, can do joinery, rip, resaw (within it's size...

    Router Table Spindle Lock - Improved I made a couple of improvements. I added a spring to keep the push rod against the actuating lever and a small screw behind the spindle lock lever to keep it from moving too far back when the router was lowered. Original Post: I designed my router lift to...

    Wooden body I own a die and tap to thread wood but the diameter is 3/4" and this is a dowel size I can't find locally. I have thus decided to try and build a rounding plane / dowel maker to create my own 3/4" dowels. A rounding plane is is like a giant pencil sharpener with a cone shaped...

    Introduction: Overall Design, and Fun with Geometry This series of blog posts describes the design and construction of the Mini Tetrahedral Tensegrity Table I built recently. The SketchUp model is available on the 3D Warehouse. When I started thinking about this project, all I knew was that I...

    CLAMP FOR MY BIESMEYER FENCE UNDER CONSTRUCTION Greetings to all once again; I am attaching photos of the clamp for my new Biesmeyer style fence that is under construction. It came out fairly well. The circular pads are adjustable by carriage bolts threaded in to t-nuts to correct any...
  20. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I have a project with two pieces of wood joining at a 150 degree angle. I would like to glue a spine into one of the pieces and have a snug slot in the other that I can slide the spine into. Latter I can pull the two pieces apart for storage. I am having a "senior" moment and can't figure out...
