Oh for the love of Wood!!! / Oh Cedar My Cedar!
« on: December 11, 2011, 05:14:33 pm »
I got a call from a man who owns a cedar farm, one of his smaller trees had fallen and he asked if Id like to have it...Well....YEAH!! lol it wasnt to hard of a question to answer.. I took my trailer over to the farm, and a chainsaw.. had to cut the tree into two 12' sections to fit on the trailer...and i thought he said "Small Tree" ...lol...ended up taking the tree to my local mill, and here was the results. The last photo shows the cedar as it was being stickered and stack to dry.

Woodworking Jigs / Re: Small Box Cam Clamp
« on: December 11, 2011, 11:20:23 am »
Exactly Justin, This clamp provides even pressure on all 4 sides of the box and along with the strap clamp provides good clamping on the upper and lower half of the box... The cams (disks) are easy to make on the table saw and when screwed to the jig base, the screw is set off center just a bit to create the Cam action..as you can see in the lower(Last) photo

I made a glue syringe out of an air pump needle ( used to pump up footballs, etc) and a spare glue bottle cap I had laying around...I simply epoxied the needle into the glue cap and now i can get glue into the tightest of spaces...

Woodworking Jigs / Small Box Cam Clamp
« on: December 10, 2011, 11:18:38 am »
Whenever I make jewelry boxes I use this cam clamp I made along with an adjustable strap clamp. The cam clamp provides even pressure on all 4 sides of the box all the while keeping it square.  Attached to the base of the jig are two pieces of MDF set at 90 degrees from one another, this supports 2 sided of the box keeping it square. the two remaining sides have these cam discs applying equal pressure so that the glue joint is tight and the box is square

Woodworking Jigs / Box Joint Jig
« on: December 10, 2011, 11:10:40 am »
Recently I made a new box joint jig. It features a interchangable face with different size keys for different size box joints. as well as a sacraficial backer piece that prevents tear out..It fits into both miter slots of the table saw to keep it 90 degrees to the blade.

Projects / Michael Borgs Latest Projects
« on: December 10, 2011, 01:21:58 am »
Recently Michael Borg of Borgs wood send me over his latest projects. He made bracelets for his daughter and niece for Christmas using a mesquite log with turquoise inlay. Which is a very nice touch!! He finished them off with 4 coats of varnish followed with 2 coats of carnauba wax. He also sent over some pictures of a set of wine glasses he made...Very nice Michael!! When talking about the wine glasses Michael states:

I made these wine glass stems as a prototype for a inside out turning that I was planning, they are from a pine 4x4. My 11year old daughter saw them and made me promise that she could have them. I wasn't even going to finish them until she asked for them.
Seeing that she is only 11 and would not be able to use them for wine for another decade I decided to make the leather lined box so she would have a safe place for her to keep them. The wood for the box sides is some wood that was left over from the Keepsake box that I made for her last year for Christmas. I think it is Sycamore (not real sure) and the lid is Spalted Maple. There is 1/2" of foam under the leather. Finish on both the box and wine glass stem is Varnish, about 4 coats on the box and I don't remember how many on the wine glasses."
