30 projects in 30 days #10: week three in re-view

06-20-2009 03:40 AM by scottb | 4 comments »

new photo… but it otherwise looks about the same as the beginning of the week, eh? If only work was more considerate of my personal time plans. I had to head off to the wilds of Boothbay, Maine this week. The good news is I was gone and back in one trip. The better news, I “had” to stop by Woodcraft on the way there. The bad news, I couldn’t exactly get any projects done in the hotel room, so I just read turning magazines. I say hotel, twasn’t quite that&#...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #1: Convert random scraps into end grain boards (cut first - design later)

12-07-2009 06:09 AM by sras | 4 comments »

OK. This blog stuff is new to me. I’ve got a couple projects going where I am forcing myself to leave the large stock alone and work with material that ends up getting burned after I have too much of it. I have been using CBdesigner from jayman7. He posted a project on this here. I have searched through blog entries and I think I am using this in a little different way. Another big resource for me has been dewoodwork’s blog on how to make an end grain cutting board. Clearly,...

What Woods Pair Well With Mahogany

12-07-2011 03:31 AM by Biscuit | 4 comments »

I just purchased two antique five panel (vertical) mahogany doors with the hopes of incorporating them into a bed (one door for the headboard and one for the footboard). This is a budget project so I don’t want to use mahogany for the legs, finishing pieces, etc. Any idea on what domestic hardwoods might pair well with mahogany?

Wood from the Past

03-16-2012 05:39 PM by Chuck | 4 comments »

My Grandma has been cleaning out her garage and the garage that was Grandpa’s shop and has found several boards for me. I went by last night and picked them up, the biggest of the boards was this Cedar 2×10 that is 8’ long. I wire brushed a lot of the dirt off the board but then I needed to plane the rough sawn board to get a look at the wood. Here is the stack of the other boards, it’s a mix of walnut and cedar with maybe a few other types of wood in there. I...

For those of you that haven’t been following – I recently decided that I would work through an entire woodworking book full of projects – The New Yankee Workshop by Norm Abram – to build my current skills, learn a few new techniques, and correct some of my bad habits I’ve picked up by being self-taught. The first project in the book was a medicine cabinet. You can read about it here The second project in the book is one I’ve been pretty excited about...

Tumbling blocks variation

03-30-2013 04:42 PM by BertFlores58 | 4 comments »

Have you ever tried a square that becomes a diamond when a shadow is cast on the corner side… an illusion by discovery. I was recycling small pieces that are kept for future use. Here is what I was able to make… First I made those irregular ones into a square using only a miter box. Cutting the sides equally gives a better way of repetetive sawing making a square. Without changing the position of the stopper, as long as there is enough area and one portion is straight the...
