Mosaics in Wood #1: Reveal Video - 7 Sisters Mosaic In Wood

12-02-2014 01:04 AM by Mathew Nedeljko | 3 comments »

I’m in the process of finishing my fourth Lazy Susan project that I call 7 Sisters using the Mosaic in Wood technique. I made this “Reveal” video to capture how the colors and grain of the walnut, cherry and maple pop as the finish goes on. This is definitely one of my favorite moments in the project build. Hope you enjoy!

03-24-2009 02:13 PM by jimmydestiny | 3 comments »

Hello all, sorry for the delay on posting! but its been a hectic few weeks of work! Anyway I thought I would use this blog to go through my methods of introducing woodwork to new students and, hopefully, get some advice/encouragement from those of you here to give me some new ways of keeping student interest in my subject high. Just a little explaination on who, and what I teach then….I am, as previously stated a woodwork teacher, I have students from the age of 12 to 18. Through thi...

My Rikon 14" Deluxe Bandsaw Journey #5: Done Tuning

01-31-2010 07:27 AM by Hoakie | 3 comments »

Ok, spent last night and this morning tuning the saw. The nice thing about this saw is that everything I can think of that might need adjusting is fairly easily adjusted. I followed the instructions on Rikon’s site and was able to adjust the lower wheel so the blade now runs on the center of the tire. This involved loosening and tightening the bolts that hold in the prescribed fashion. I over compensated a little bit on the first try but hit it dead on the second. I was able t...

Bedroom Closet #3: Shelves Installed

02-11-2010 06:45 AM by Broooklyn | 3 comments »

The puppies are now installed with metal L brackets. L brackets were not the look at I was going for but I figured they give good support without having to block off the left side of the shelves with a support beam. If I had a router, I may have attempted to inset the L bracket into the bottom of the shelf but for now, this newbie is happy enough. Anybody ever veneer an L bracket? :) Not the most artistic project but fun nonetheless. p.s. That’s an IKEA sliding door that I hacked ...

Unsportsmanlike Conduct- Roughing the package

03-03-2010 03:26 AM by Chelios | 3 comments »

So I ordered a new dust collector system from Festool. It is expensive as heck but Eagle America gives me a good deal on it plus free shipping. I have been ready all day to open the package and use it first thing today when I got home and what did I find? The dust collector is all banged up and the frame was broken from the rough handling. I couldn’t believe it. I look again at how it is packed and it is basically in a corrugate box but no styrofoam, or anything to help protect i...

Backstory and first stab at converting tree to lumber

03-22-2010 08:22 AM by PflugervilleSteve | 3 comments »

A neighbor has a nice big Bradford pear that lost a major fork during the winter of 2006. Turns out some fungus had gotten down into the crotch-wood and during a big storm, CRASH!!! a good third of the tree came down. They chopped and lopped and mulched galore, but there were a couple nice size logs left out in front of their house for “firewood, or whatever”. I nabbed them knowing nothing about the properties of pear tree wood, but under the assumption that if Cherry and App...

Unpopular Planes #1: Unpopular, Unloved or just overlooked?

08-15-2012 10:00 PM by Johnnyblot | 3 comments »

In my time here on LJ’s I have seen, [especially Handplanes Of Your Dreams topic] what great lengths many of us go to, to bring a woodworking tool, in this case Hand Planes back from the junk heap to a full [wood]working life! The big boys, particularly here in the UK are /were:- 1) STANLEY, made in USA & England 2) RECORD, made in England But there are many others available that have not, shall we say been taken to our hearts like those above. So here I’d like to ...
