    'Pig'ging Out!

    We wanted to put the logo somewhere on the pig, and my wife wanted to do it like a brand on the hip, but I wanted a curly tail and thought I could work in the logo. It worked out well. The ta is connected to the body, so I am not too worried about it. Maybe I’ll test drop one to see how it...

    'Pig'ging Out!

    It is a mix of yellow birch and red elm. The yellow birch resembles maple and the red elm looks similar to red oak. The CNC that I use is a DIY kit from Grunblau design studio called the Platform CNC. Here is a pic:

    'Pig'ging Out!

    I thought I would post my latest project because I am thrilled with the reduction in time it takes me to produce these 'guys.' My dad has been making pig shaped cutting boards as gifts for friends and family for as long as I can remember. He has two paper templates (for a big pig and a little...

    Digital Woodworking

    Good point. In theory you are right, but a couple of things to consider. First, V-Carve Pro doesn't have a cut on vector option for the V-carve tool path. Second, even if it did, I prefer the tool path that I can create which takes smaller "bites" and allows me to be able to cut a groove that...

    Digital Woodworking

    I used a standard 90 degree vee bit and a V-carve toolpath in Vectric V-carve Pro to do the miters. Just make the vector be twice as wide as your material is thick and set the flat depth at material thickness. Also make sure you carry the vector far enough past the edges of your piece to make...

    Digital Woodworking

    Technically, I am the manufacturer. It is called the Platform CNC. It is a kit with the structural parts supplied by Grunblau Design and the motion control parts (drives and controllers) provided by CNC router parts. I then modified the base design by adding Hiwin rails on all axes.

    Digital Woodworking

    I wanted to share my first "fully digital" woodworking project. I was a little worried that going digital would be somehow less satisfying, but I am finding that going digital lets you be more creative in the design aspect and it takes some of the stress out of the part cutting process. This...

    Free Lightly Used 3M 6900 Series Respirators

    Fred, Steve and Gene. Sorry I have taken so long to get back to you, I had to travel for work and then they made me go to the IWF show in Atlanta last week - it was horrible... okay that is sarcasm. Anyway, the masks fit in the medium flat rate box for usps which I believe costs $13.65 to...

    Free Lightly Used 3M 6900 Series Respirators

    You four were the first four to respond. We just need to figure out who is going to get the medium one. I am 6'2" and while I typically wear a large, the medium fits me fine and I can pass the fit test wearing either size. I will figure out which size flat rate USPS box they fit in for those...

    UV cured coating

    LOL, yes it is pricey. I don’t know the exact pricing that the distributor charges, but I think it is around $170 a quart and $650 a gallon. It comes in 3 sheens and 3 thicknesses (seal coat, build coat and top coat). Like any finish, it has its negatives. I have used it at work and at home...

    UV cured coating

    Danny, I made the table, and while the top has been finished for almost 2 years now, it was just sitting on top of our old table until I finally finished the base early this year. For the base, I used the bench bolts from Lee Valley for the ability to tighten it up over time and it also...

    UV cured coating

    Hey everyone, long time since I've been regularly active on here! Hopefully this post won't break any rules - if so, please remove it. About 2 years ago, the company I work for developed a polish for a UV cured coating that was too hard for existing wood finishing polishes. I bought some of...
