Tapered cutterfinale Here we are at the grand finale…Or just me finally trusting I got to understand how it works.So ready to cut into the wood. Yes, I actually think I got it and so well that I can make any size or type I want from now in app a hour, so yes it was well worth the ride, now I have to find some projects, where I can use the tools… Even it was not the purpose, the purpose was just to play and understand. So back to that wonderful piece of beech that I sh...

Easy Wood Tools / Midi Lathe Duplicator #1: Making the 'Stands'

02-01-2015 11:46 PM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 7 comments »

As they say, ‘Necessity is the Mother of Invention’ and you, the woodworker, knows that fact the best. I have a little job where I am going to make 4 finials for a mahogany antique bed. I tried to buy some pre-made finials online but I couldn’t find any that matched the size and the style. Besides, the finials I found were maple and I just don’t want to try to match the finish already in the hole of trying to make maple look like mahogany. I have a set of Easy Wo...

12-17-2013 03:12 AM by hoss12992 | 18 comments »

I have had alot of folks how do I make the cedar birdhouses. These are really easy and hopefully these pics will help. As they say, a pic is worth 1000 words, and Im not much on typing.

I do ALOT of cedar, as I have LOTS of it on my farm, it last a really long time, and its easy to turn. Did I mention, its free, which happens to be my favorite price. ...

Scratch Awl from Scratch

07-20-2012 02:40 AM by DanoP | 11 comments »

Decided to show how I made my awl Started with a cheap box store screwdriver (they seem to be made from decent steel), a brass fitting and a hunk of wood (in this case, a piece of redwood burl). Heat the shaft of a screwdriver with a propane torch and pull it free of the handle then heat it to red hot and let it slowly cool to anneal (soften) the steel. Mount the screwdriver blade in the lathe and grind to shape with a grinder or you can also work it more slowly with a file. g...

Connect 4 game

07-12-2010 03:19 PM by Stevinmarin | 11 comments »

Remember Connect 4? It’s a fun little game in which players try to, well, connect four colored disks in a row. This is an easy build that you can do complete in an afternoon. Dealing with 42 holes and 42 disks gets a little monotonous though. But just remember: 42 is the answer to life, the universe, and everything. If you would like to try one out, here's my template to get it all set up.
