Mahogany Banana Hanger

227 days ago by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

Hang your bananas with style. Made this banana hanger yesterday for a Christmas gift. A suggestion was also made that this would hold headphones nicely, this coming from a music creator. Only tools needed were a jig saw, router, and a drill. You can watch the video HERE.

Learning Curve #9: Box Review

2670 days ago by MsDebbieP | 2 comments »

I have my little desk set now: the Plans Box, the Little box, and the Pencil Holder Box and I’ve tried different things on each and here’s what I’ve come up with: 1. the plan box with the plain edges with rabbit cuts is nice and clean looking on the front. I like that. 2. the little box with its uneven box joints is rustic looking and as Dick stated – “antique-ish”. 3. I took the first box, however, and rounded the corners to see what that would lo...

"Art-Full Wood Rats" --by RusticWoodArt

2606 days ago by frank | 2 comments »

Art-Full Wood Rats ....and so today i am going straight for the soul of the word and writing as one can when they are expelling multi-words ‘off the cuff’ of their heart…. Yes, there are times more often then not, when I will write and milk the word to get at the heart of it’s meaning and then while sitting here waiting for a heady froth, I will go for a twist in the meaning to see if I can get outside the box and examine the art-full word in a new way of meaning...

We have been busy

2219 days ago by TheKingsTreasures | 2 comments »

I haven’t posted here in a while but we have been busy. Christmas was a really busy time, we had a lot of sign orders for gifts. Now that the weather is nicer we have been getting out a lot more projects and coming up with more ideas. The orders are coming in, just enough to keep us busy but not stressed. I am enjoying the challenge. When the orders stop I have some ideas of my own that I would like to try. I look forward to this summer and all the summer time projects.

Projects #2: Stuff I've Built - The Fujiwhara Chest

1938 days ago by TampaTom | 2 comments »

For those who follow along at the Wood Whisperer Blog, Marc Spagnuolo has featured one of my latest projects as his featured Project of the Week. This is a Krenov-inspired chest on stand I built mostly out of offcuts I purchased at Weiss Hardwoods in Largo, Florida. I wanted the base to have a little movement and grace, so I cut the rails and stretchers with a curve in them. Both the front and back curves have identical arcs – as do the two sides. The chest is made of maple and i...

A journey into the workshop. #2: Benchop legs, and free mulch... Sort of.

1767 days ago by dbhost | 2 comments »

After my screwup with the pine legs, and the fact that pine 4×4s are a royal pain in the butt to find in Houston, I opted for a trip to Lowes to grab a couple of Aromatic red cedar 4×4s. Their so called “select” which I guess is supposedly select grade, but knottier than I would expect. So I get home with the 4×4s and notice that they are, well actually 4×4, and my plans call for nominal size lumber (3.5×3.5), so it was off to the jointer, and planer to...

Dedicated Chamfer plane

1122 days ago by CharlesAuguste | 2 comments »

Always wanted a dedicated chamfer plane, but surely not going to get a stanley or a ridiculously price one forsomething you dont used often.So i had this old smoother in need of a new sole ,the plane you put awayand never use, the one that you will re-sole when the time is right. That said, i mark 2 45% on the bottom to make a perfect 90%, cut trimmed, cleaned and waxed,And now i have dedicated chamfer plane!!!Its working really well for me, much better then a wobbly block plane, and once ...

Setting up new shop #5: New House, new shop

1018 days ago by WoodenSoldier | 2 comments »

So I moved about a month ago into my first home with a real garage. The two car garage is all mine, no cars allowed! Very exciting.Anyway, I have lots of cabinet space, which is great, but not much wall room. Since I only have one wall, to hang things on, I have to make it count. That one wall just happens to be 14 feet tall so I want to use every bit of it.At my last place, I had to keep a lot of my wood outdoors so I wanted to build an indoor rack this time. This one that I built is a ...

Workbench #16: Base Complete

972 days ago by CartersWhittling | 2 comments »

Hello. At this point in time I have the workbench finished, but this post will be about the base. I will make a video going over the completed bench and then post my last blog entry of the bench. Shortly after the last blog post I bought the last portion of wood I needed for the bench. The first piece I worked on was for the underside of the bench top. I made a piece 4 1/2” wide and about 1 1/2” thick to glue to the back edge of the top to make the edge the same thickness as th...
