Weekend Pen Box

12-06-2011 01:17 AM by Owlcroft | 16 comments »

Weekend Pen Box I got the idea for this pen box from a friend. I was at his house looking at a commemorative pen he was given for retirement and was impressed with the design of the pen box. I took some pictures and spent a couple days figuring out how I could make my own. Below are picture of my friends pen box. The box turned out to be fairly easy to build once I took a good look at it. I took a couple minutes to determine exactly how It was made; then I was ready to start. Ba...

Weekend Pen Assemble Press

05-24-2012 01:23 AM by Owlcroft | 3 comments »

I have been using a Rockler Pen vice I bought when I first started making Pens. It is an adequate pen vice for drilling blanks; but a poor substitute for a pen assembly press. I knew there had to be a better way without spending a lot for one of those on the pen making web sites. So I did a little web search to find shop made pen assembly press plans. I found a lot of shop made pen presses, but none had easy to follow instructions with measurements. I finally ran across a pen assembly ...

Cutlist and Layout from Sketchup

07-03-2008 02:37 PM by daltxguy | 317 comments »

If you’re a fan of Sketchup for creating woodworking models, then the next obvious step is to use Sketchup to help you create cutlists and layouts. Sketchup plugin Cutlist 4.1 does just that. CutList 4.1 sketchup plugin helps you determine how much of each material you need to produce your design, taking into account nominal sized lumber with allowances for finishing to final size. Then it goes one further and lays out all of the pieces on boards or sheet good sizes of your choosing. Th...

planes, trains and vehicals? #14: Almost there spitfire and mustang

11-05-2013 05:23 AM by jacob34 | 2 comments »

The spitfire and mustang are almost there. I have painted the base and planes waiting for it to dry to put the P51 and SPITFIRE on the bases. Then clear coat each. They are both out of pine as well as the base. I still need to work on my propellers something fierce, otherwise I am somewhat happy with this. Oddly enough like the first planes which were requested by my father these were requested by my Aunt or Aunt inn law as it is. I know they are hinky but they apparently like them. I...

Decal Pen Tutorial

03-11-2008 09:24 PM by Kerux | 17 comments »

Here is what I basically do with my Decal pens. As you can see I use Testors Decal paper. This can be found at Hobby stores. I purchased mine at “Hobby Lobby.” Just follow the directions for printing out your logo, name…etc. One thing I have found using this material is that you MUST use a light colored blank for the background. This is transparent film, but the inkjet inks are not solid enough for darker colors. That type of decal must be purchased through professional m...

"5 Minute Gnome" Tutorial

11-13-2012 03:40 PM by mpounders | 4 comments »

I’ve been working on a lot of Santas for the holidays and usually have a booth setup on December 1st hopefully to sell a few things. I wanted to have something I could carve on, as a demonstration or a small give-away for kids. I started looking at the 5 minute wizards, but decided to change it up a bit. These could be either gnomes or elves, but they’re really just a wizard with feet and a little carving on the back for arms and clothes and such. I still haven’t gotten ...

Intarsia Basics #2: Preparing Your Wood and Pattern for Cutting

04-11-2012 01:20 AM by KoryK | 18 comments »

Intro: Hello to all and welcome to the first installment of Intarsia Basics. Before we can start cutting we need to select the wood we want to use and get our pattern ready. Wood Choices: I prefer to start with stock that is one inch thick because that gives you a lot of depth that you can work with. It will require a little more sanding on some areas but it will help to give your piece a 3D look. It is your choice if you prefer to stain your wood to achieve the colors or use exot...
