Jack Pine Woodworks

Laser looms! I’ve cut them before on the CNC, but I think I like the laser better 🤔💥 #jackpinewoodworks #lasers #lasercutting #looms #laplooms #weaving #craft #madeinsalford #madeincanada #woodworking

This was a super simple laser engraving, but I was nervous as [email protected]#%. This was a box that held my co-workers dogs ashes. We had our dog cremated and know how much animals mean to their families. After a couple of test burns it all worked out.
Have you ever been nervous to “mess up” a project?

I want to give a shout out to Kate over at @bowandharrowworkshop for the sticker swap and honestly one of the nicest hats to be put on my head. I think I might have to make a rack now that I own enough maker hats to necessitate one 😉

Here’s some oil going on the river. You can really see the clarity of the river and the beauty grain of the walnut. I like to use spalted Maple for the river bed because it looks like silt dragging along the bottom. Thanks for all the kind words, these have been fun to do! Thanks for following along!

Last pour of this river/fish cheese board. I had to sand down the first layer a bit to get out some bubbles that never surfaced. I remember the first time I had to do this and it left the epoxy scratched and white. I thought I ruined it, but once the next layer is poured, it’s crystal clear again! The last couple of epoxy projects I’ve done I’ve had this happen where tiny bubbles won’t surface, has anyone had luck with a vacuum chamber? Does it help?
Either was I’m looking forward to how this will pop with some oil on it!

While I’m waiting to take pictures of the river/fish art, I’m starting on this river/fish cheese board. I wish I had a bandsaw, but if you are careful and pay attention you can resaw on the table saw. This will be a walnut cheese board with a spalted maple river bed. Walnut fish for the win! 🐟💥 #jackpinewoodworks #walnut #spaltedmaple #river #riverboard #riverart #fishing #woodworking #ineedabandsaw #madeinsalford #madeincanada

Layering the fish this time made thing much quicker and cleaner. I did 3 different sizes to give more dimension. Loving how this is turning out.

Well you can’t win them all! Compared to the last time I poured one, this one came up a little short. Mixed up some more epoxy and the first layer is down! I’ll place the fish in and pour the second coat next!

One of these things are not like the others 😂. Finally got my Christmas present chisels hung up. These are the Narex chisels from @leevalleytools . My blue set of Mastercraft chisels surprisingly did ok for what I needed. I just goes to show that you don’t always need the best and most expensive tool to do the job. Where there’s a will, there’s a way!

Got the dado’s cut into the “banks” to nest the river bed into. All glued and clamped up and it will be ready for some epoxy and fish! With the new laser, I may try and laser cut the fish this time.

Skipped using the cnc on this latest “river” board. Someone liked the river cutting board I did so much that they wanted a hanging piece of art. Using some natural live edge maple and pairing it with some spalted Maple for the river bed. I’ll be glueing all this tonight and pouring the first layer of epoxy, and tomorrow I’ll add the fish!

It’s alive!!! Finally I’m able to get this thing running. Moving the laser in, ended up creating a small reno to get it wired and exhausted. Excited to start playing!

Working by yourself means creative solutions! Finally got this beast out of the crate and rolled into place. Still have to run the power and hook up the exhaust and water chiller. I introduce you to the tool to the Jack Pine Woodworks shop! It’s a ACCTEK 100 watt laser engraver/cutter. Hoping not only to use this to meet my needs, but offer custom work to local and fellow woodworkers and customers. I’ll be spending the next week getting this set up and fine tuned!

Well this is awkward. Not sure how I’m going to man handle this thing by myself. I’ve been impatiently waiting for this to arrive since November. Anyone want to take a guess what is 400 lbs and 5 feet by 8 feet and is taking up the majority of my garage? Hoping to unbox this today and reveal some cool things for Jack Pine Woodworks!

As we close in on 2018, I had a look a my top 9. It was a good year of finding a direction and moving forward. Looks like I’ll have to make some more river cutting/serving boards! Also, I’ve got a cool delivery coming soon and can’t wait to show it off! Happy New Years everyone! 🍾

Well it seems like forever since my last post. Christmas time has been hectic and I’ve slacked on taking project pictures, as well as some I couldn’t post. I’m sick right now, but this needs to go out tomorrow for a Christmas present. This is a double sided solid walnut sign, with spalted maple letters. Della will have the fanciest tax sign this side of of the 401!

15 lap looms and needles ready for Christmas! I’ve got a couple of signs that are almost done, but I can’t show those until after Christmas!
