  1. Tumbling Block Boards

    These are a couple more Tumbling Block boards I recently finished. The circular one is my first prototype of one like that. They are made from the same combination of Hard Maple, Cherry, and Black Walnut. This time around I made a little jig for gluing these together in rows. I'll try and...
  2. Tumbling Block Pizza Board

    This is a tumbling block board made from Black Walnut, Cherry, and Hard Maple. It's roughly 12.5" in diameter and just under 1/2" thick.
  3. Tumbling block cutting boards, final chapter, the new borders held up!

    Picking up from my last post, I still had to test the new walnut border to ensure I would have no problems prior to completing the two other boards intended for gifts. We bought a full fresh turkey and gave the board a thorough workout with the board surface and gravy moat soaked and covered in...
  4. degoose made me do it (cheeseboard)

    I saw the post of the cheeseboard by Larry and had to try it. I don't have the best setup for cutting angles(yet), but it was a fun learning experience. I used Curly Maple, Imbuia, and Purpleheart. 1 and 1/4" strips, so it is about 11" by 18". My rips of the 30 degree angles were not very...
  5. Small Brown Tone Tumbling Block Lazy Susan

    The Small Brown Tone "Tumbling Block" Lazy Susan is based on the "Tumbling Block" quilt pattern. It measures 12" across (13 ½" tip to tip) and 2" high. There are 312 pieces on the overlay. The pieces are cut and glued in place, one piece at a time. The pattern covers the top and extends over...
  6. Tumbling Block Table

    The pattern on table is the "Tumbling Block" quilt pattern. The table stands 30" tall and is 47 1/4" wide and 54 ½" long. There are almost 6000 pieces on the entire table. The pieces are used over the edge and onto the pedestal and feet of the table. The table is finished in its natural color...
  7. Tumbling block cutting board

    I originally found this block as a kitchen island in a wood working magazine we sell at work and I got to thinking about doing it myself. I knew the level of detail was more than anything I had done before but I was determined to see this through. I chose maple, mahogany, and walnut for my 3...
  8. Tumbling Block Board

    This is my first successful prototype of a tumbling block board. Made from Cherry, Hard Maple and Black Walnut. Using the blogs and images of other tumbling blocks here for inspiration, I tried a variety of methods for both cutting and gluing the diamonds. Ultimately, I used a jig made out of...
  9. Tumbling Block Coasters??

    I didn't actually set out to make coasters here. I'm thinking about a cutting board to make for my dad and decided to glue up a small section of wood in the tumbling block form (following the blog entry from degoose) to see what I'd be getting myself into if I went that route. I then had to...
  10. Small Walnut Tumbling Block Lazy Susan

    To let you know I can work with just one type of wood on an object, here is my Walnut Tumbling Block Lazy Susan. Even the Tumbling Block pattern can be made with only one type of wood. The Small Walnut "Tumbling Block" Lazy Susan is based on the "Tumbling Block" quilt pattern. It measures 12"...
  11. Tumbling Block Cutting Board With Handle

    Another tumbling block board, made from Black Walnut, Cherry, and Hard Maple. It's about 13" wide, 15" long, and 1.25" thick. The board's handle is biscuited on, the sides are routed, and it has 3 coats of salad bowl finish. I included some pictures of the new jig I made for this. I'm still...
  12. Double Tumble Cutting Board

    This is an endgrain cutting board made out of 3 hardwoods. I blogged about the build here. It is built out of the three parallelograms that are shown in the the forth picture. These were about 15 inch long sticks that were then crosscut into the size shown. I used a sled that had clamps...
  13. Tumbling Block Cutting Board

    My latest tumbling block cutting board made from walnut, cherry, and maple. The dimensions are 14.75" x 11.5" x 1.25".
  14. Tumbling Block end grain cutting board

    Everyone else is making cool cutting boards so when the Franklin-Horner community centre asked me to make them a cutting board, I had to show off a bit. It wasn't until a while ago that I looked more closely at what everyone else is doing and realized how far behind I am in cutting boards and...
  15. 3D Tumbling Block Bread Board

    I was getting sick of dragging out my large cutting board every time I baked and sliced bread, so I decided that I needed a bread board. I also wanted to try one of these styles ever since I've seen others showing them off on LJ's, so…........ Here's my addition to the 3D Cutting Board Club...
  16. Tumbling block chopping board

    Like so many others on this site, I have been inspired to give things a go. Thanks to Degoose's blog on how to do this, and many other project postings, I can finally post a project too. Interestingly I have modified a radial arm saw to fit a router for surfacing ( a wanabe TWC) and also built...
  17. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I took my first trip into a Menard's this past weekend and I was truly impressed with their lumber and tool selection. I only have Lowe's and Home Depot around me and by comparison, they're terrible. Menard's had actual Baltic birch plywood in 4×8 sheets in 1/4", 1/2", and 3/4". They also had...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I think I'm finally getting brave enough to take my blade gaurd off my TS (Delta 34-44). Dose anyone know if there is an aftermarket riving knife that will fit this model? Thanks!
  19. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hello forum, I tried to post this a few minutes ago but it never showed up so here's take two. This year I am going to build a new dining table (there, I said it, now it HAS to happen!). Our current table is a beat up department-store garage-sale item, and as such we haven't cared much about...
  20. Blogs
    Double Tumble Cutting Board Or maybe I should call it Two and a Half Steps. Anyway, I cannot believe that I am building another one of these, but heck, they are so much fun. This is a continuing saga of endgrain geometric boards using three contrasting woods. A light color, medium color, and...
