    Custom Knife Blocks--Part 4--Lots of Slots

    The fronts of each block consists of 5 pieces of 3/4”stock cut to precisely the same size and all cut at a 9 degree angle on each end. Each of these sections have different slots for different size blades so a set of templates were made to use for consistency and to speed up the process...

    Custom Knife Blocks--Part 3--Inlays

    Each of the knife blocks gets a quarter circle bloodwood inlay on each side where the ends of the side pieces come together. On the prototype I made a jig to use a 2” forstner bit to cut an 1/8” deep recess for the inlay but the client wanted the inlay bigger so I bought a 3” forstner bit...

    Custom Knife Blocks-Part 2-- glue ups

    One of the biggest challenges of making 25 of anything is being consistent with all of the measurements and finding ways to do glue-ups efficiently. The sides of the blocks all have to be the same size on the top dimension so when the fronts are attached everything matches up. I found out...

    Hi Folks, Do any of you make and sell any custom picture frames? If so what is a decent asking price?

    Made a custom tool rest

    Thanks to Matt (aka Splint Eastwood) and his metalworking I was able to make a custom tool rest for my mini lathe. The mini is small enough already, I was kinda peeved to lose so much from the diameter of the workpiece because of the tool rest base. This one is a prototype made out of mdf and it...
