  1. I've just added a Kerf Spacing Calculator to blocklayer.com, that some of you may find useful. It works out the geometric spacing of the cuts so when bent, the inside edges of the cuts join to create the curve. The depth of the cuts (and remaining wood thickness for the bend) can't be calculated (that I can work out anyway). That seems to be the art of it. Depends on the wood and the dimensions. Trial and error? But this will produce simple geometric diagrams, so you can see the wood and cuts both straight and bent, and drag sliders to animate angle, radius, cut width etc to see what changes. It also creates a full scale template to mark out the cuts. https://www.blocklayer.com/kerf-spacingeng.aspx It obviously can't be 100% accurate, but should give a pretty close idea of what sort of a bend you'll get for the entered dimensions. If it needs editing, additions, fixing or you have any other ideas for improvements, please let me know.
  2. Guys, I'm looking to see if there might be a calculator that I can input a length of a giving piece of wood and what the height would be if it was cut parallel to 20 or 30 degrees.
  3. Hi Y'all, I kept making stupid math errors when cutting out the parts for raised panel doors and drawer fronts, and also drawer boxes. I found other calculators online, but none of them did all the things I wanted, so I built my own. The idea is to input the fixed parameters like rail/stile width and interlock only once. Then, you have places to input several different door and drawer sizes on one sheet. Print it out and carry it to the shop where you'll have the dimensions for all your pieces-parts in one handy chart. Door and Drawer Calculator.xlsx
  4. Online calculator for calculating segmented turnings
  5. I picked one up at the BORG when I was trying to figure out how to throw up a peaked roof on my shed build. I paid about $39 for the "Construction Master 5" It was handy. I could have done it using CAD or a trig formula book but I wanted to try it this way. But it has since migrated into the shop and I gotta say I really, really, really like the thing. I can convert back and forth from all systems of measurement CM MM Inch Decimal whatever. I think in Decimal and prefer inch standard but my tapes are all in fractions. And once in a while I'm dealing with metric and it gets crazy. This thing sorts it all out for me. I hit the convert button and then the measurement standard I want to see the dimension in and I get it. I keep finding new uses for this thing. A while ago I built a sine plate. Two hunks of ply with a piano hinge. I built if as a drill press tool. But have found that the set up is a bit tricky. For those who don't know a Sine plate is just that two plates with some type of hinge and two round bars down a specific distance away from the center of the hinge. You do the Trig and figure how what size gauge blocks to put in between the bars to get a dead on accurate angle. Set up was a bit tricky until today, when I grabbed the calculator and entered 10" hit RUN and then entered the 22.5 and hit PITCH. Then I pressed the RISE key and lo I knew exactly how far apart the ply boards needed to be at the 10" mark to give me precisely 22.5 Degrees. If you hate math but love complex design you might think about picking up this calculator.
  6. http://www.metalgeek.com/ There's a coping calculator here that is intended for pipe and tube. But it works for any rounds. Input the sizes of the rounds that you want to being together, Tell it the angle and offset and hit calculate. Then print off the result and wrap that around whatever you need to cut.
