  1. Pantograph test

    The aim of this test was to determine horizontal and vertical straight lines, limits and ratios. Since I have few holes very close to each other, all ratios are simmilar so I put set up with 1,8 :1 vertical and 1,9 : 1 horizontal ratio - on sample 10×60 cm - turned out some 5,5×30 cm. Regarding...
  2. Name Plate & Challenge Coin Rack

    Built this for a guy I worked with for his going away present. The 3 channels cut in the base are to display challenge coins (which are a traditional gift exchanged between military folks, usually with a unit's logo on one side of the coin). Used a Milescraft router pantograph to do the...
  3. MFT deska na nový pracovní stůl

    When I repasoval desk to desk I decided that it'll top plate style MFT plate.I had aluminum profiles, so I have to cut through the slot and drilled holes and made them T rail.Finish sockets and forehead took me a little bit, so before the table is finished and is already operating a desk dirty.
  4. 3D Router Pantograph

    Last week I finished the build of my router pantograph including the tool mount for a Dremel tool. I took the opportunity to make some dice. They turned out quite nice. The remaining problem is the rounding of the edges which needs better fixing and adjusting. As soon as I have mastered that I...
  5. Potting Bench

    I found the plans for this project on The Family Handyman. It is all cedar except the 3/4" pressure treated plywood that holds the containers. The one on the left is an 18qt trash can and the one on the right is a dish pan. It is 47"w x 23 1/2"d x 63"h. I haven't decided on a finish yet or if I...
  6. Nuts and Bolts Captured

    How many projects have you done that required embedding a bolt head or nut into the wood. One solution of course is the use of t-nuts. Another, is drilling a round hole big enough to accommodate the nut or bolt then epoxying it in. Or, using a chisel to fit the the nut or bolt head into the...
  7. ROUTER PANTOGRAPH

    When I first saw the router pantograph in one website, I thought it would be interesting to make with inexpensive materials. As you can see in the photos, the only expensive part is the router. As in my other projects, I used shelving hardware, 3/4 plyboard strips and some screws. The shorter...
  8. 3D Router Pantograph and Sign

    This is my new 3D pantograph courtesy of the plans created by Matthias. Looks complicated at first but the plans are well thought out and are explained very clearly. I built it in a weekend and works exactly as advertised. http://woodgears.ca/pantograph/ I also have pictures of a sign that...
  9. Dremel Pantograph

    I always wanted to be able to write into wood, but not just with a dremel by hand, because I knew from some experiences that this does not give a good result. So I remembered from childhood that pantographs were a cool thing to copy pictures and create your own ones. Why not combining a dremel...
  10. 3D Router Pantograph

    Built from the plans purchased off of woodgears.ca. I purchased the Harbor Freight trim router to use in it, I've been wanting one for awhile and this gave me a reason to buy one. I stuck to the plans except I used pine for the whole thing whereas he calls for birch ply for most of it and maple...
  11. Pantograph Bowl

    Carved this bowl out using the 3D Pantograph, ran out of router bit length so I couldn't go as deep as I wanted. It's made out of the leftover chunk of spalted oak that I made the band saw box out of. Coated with about 6 coats of lacquer cause this stuff really soaks it up.
  12. Pantograph for drawing.

    Pantograph for drawing gift for my father This project can be seen in the pantograph blog: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/38214 Ever since child (son of a architect) I have been fascinated by drawing gear, and remember having seen one of these in a magazine as a boy. So when I a couple of...
  13. Watch For Dogs Sign

    We have a underground fence system so the dogs can roam around the yard, but it does not keep them off of the driveway. I made this sign to let people know when they drive on to the property that the dogs may be wandering around. If they are outside, they are always quick to greet a car. I...
  14. Pantograph

    Inspired by Mathias Wandel. Just wanted to make it and play with it a little. Looked quite challenging to make, but not so complicated. I used some pine , firwood, wallnut and playwood sraps with some srews and nuts to make it - pretty cheap. I drilled some more holes to make different carving...
  15. Jigs & Fixtures
    I've been working on this for over a week now taking my time so I would get it right. I purchased the Harbor Freight trim router to use in it, I've been wanting one for awhile and this gave me a reason to buy one. I stuck to the plans except I used pine for the whole thing whereas he calls for...
  16. Joinery
    I have two pieces of maple butcher block. Both are 1.5 inch thick and measure 25 inches by 12 ft. I am attempting to connect the pieces the long way, but the edges aren't straight. I have a 500lb table saw which is 5hp and a planner. However, I am concerned about either tipping if I attempt...
  17. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi All - My dad and I thought I'd tackle this fun knife block that we saw online: http://lifehacker.com/5441608/build-a-diy-schaschlik-knife-block-on-the-cheap It's basically a homemade version of one sold at Bed Bath and Beyond that uses plastic skewers. So my question is: does anyone have...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I picked up this engraver, made in 1972. The motor is running but those belts are missing. I have to get V-belts for this. If I want this machine to work as a copier, where should I put a stylus arm?
