200+ Wine Bottle balancers #1: Wine bottle balancers for the wedding

09-07-2012 04:31 PM by CueballRosendaul | 9 comments »

About 10 years ago, I made a batch of those wine bottle balance pieces for Christmas presents. When my step daughter was here, talking about gifts for the guests who make the long drive to her wedding, I suggested these would be pretty nice. I was thinking like 1 for each couple, so maybe I’d be in for 50 or so pieces. Her first request was for 275 pieces! DOH! She later downsized it to 125, but I already had lumber cut for 200+ so she’s getting about 175 and I’m keeping th...

The EZ mitre technique

07-26-2010 10:55 PM by BritBoxmaker | 79 comments »

Hello all. Well I seem to have whet the appetite a bit so here goes for a ‘novel’ technique for making mitred boxes. Its a bit like making a box out of paper, like they showed you at school, using a ‘net’. Only in 3D, with wood and a tablesaw (not sissors). Well first comes the board Its made from alternating strips of Maple and Rosewood of varying thickness. I won’t bore you with the details on how to make it suffice to say that all the corners must b...

shop jigs/furniture/fixtures #1: Zero Clearance Insert

08-13-2013 04:17 AM by Tugboater78 | 3 comments »

Well last night I was piddlin round with an idea to make a ripping fence/jig to attach to my circ saw. The one that came with it apparently grew feet and walked away, when i was on my last boat trip. I have some 9 and 10 foot long SYP 2×10-12s i want to rip the pith out of for a future project. Longest board i can try to rip on my table saw is 8’ give or take an inch. I was trying to rip out some ~1/4” strips to frame out the circ saw base on a piece of plywood. One of the st...

Who Cut The Cheese?

09-26-2010 08:31 PM by Mary Anne | 59 comments »

How could I pass up the opportunity to make a blog with a title like that? Here is the finished project, a cheese slicer: Thanks to SPalm for the original idea, blog, and parts source for making these cheese slicers. I offer this blog up because I used some slightly different methods in creating mine. Thanks to degoose for his “drunken” cutting board design that was the inspiration for my design. I think mine goes beyond merely drunken to wasted. Thanks to poroskywood for of...

Google Sketchup - Come Along for the Ride #33: Cutting board second try

11-08-2008 05:21 AM by Betsy | 6 comments »

OK – now with the able help of DaveR and Scott – I’ve managed to get some wood textures into my materials folder and have redone my cutting board. What do you think of this layout. I’m not sure I like it – alternating cherry on top, then walnut with a maple strip between. But I honestly don’t have much of any eye for things – combinations (clothes shopping involves see what the manequins (?) are wearing and picking that! – true confession). ...

For those of you who asked me for a tutorial on how to make the zig zag legless vegetable death table (cutting board), here is my best shot.

I will outline the process in 10 steps below. I have assumed that when viewing these steps that basic woodworking skills are familiar to you. If you have questions, or run into snag...
