Wood Stool

11-29-2011 04:24 AM by PercyMakinstuff | 3 comments »

This is my first blog entry! I had some left-over scraps of some really nice wood. So I made a wood stool. The base of the stool is made of metal. I found it in the yard. It was white and rusty but a coat of paint brought it back. As for the wood, I’m not sure about one of them. In the video, I say it has mahogany. If any of you have a better idea of what that wood is, please let me know! I want more of it. It was from a scrap pile that someone gave me so I wasn’t sure. Bu...

Half Lap Joint

01-25-2013 10:11 AM by bigchopperoo | 3 comments »

I’m going to do a half lap with a cross cut, chisel paring, and followed through with a shoulder plane. Now if you didn’t know better, you might be thinking I’m an Olympic diver getting ready to execute a stunning high dive. But alas, I am not. I’m a woodworker, and this is a structural joint and the tools I will use to make a simple, yet strong woodworking joint. The Half Lap is a joint used to connect two intersecting pieces of wood. Each piece of wood is sawn to half its thickness. Whe...

Medieval Style Wooden Sword – Woodworking

02-21-2013 01:52 PM by Chris Mobley | 3 comments »

I recently tried my hand at making a Medieval style wooden sword. This is not something that I have ever attempted before, but I read a few articles that made me think “I could do that!” I decided to give it a go. Since this was my first sword, my intent was to make it for decorative purposes and not for actual fighting. I did some research on what the best strategy would be, and came up with a game plan. One of the number one things that I learned during my research is when you are creat...

Working with recycled timber #23: Pine and Jarrah boxes finishing

03-14-2014 07:06 AM by robscastle | 3 comments »

Once the boxes were finally assembled the jig came out again this time the mystery four holes in jig and red circles were used to finish off the assembly. The four holes are inbuilt carry handles and the red circles a predrill locators for the final screws.I used countersunk climacoat 32mm screws, one in each finger joint. The carry handles were radiused with a round over bit in the trimmer and then a coat of shellac applied. OMG its back to cleaning up again ! Enjoy

Boston Red Sox Marquetry Hanging #1: Design, and first night's progress

06-26-2014 07:57 AM by jmartel | 3 comments »

After seeing a few of my other veneer works, I was approached to make a Red Sox wall hanging for someone to give as a gift. Seeing as how I am still looking for more experience on this marquetry kick I’m on, I decided to go for it. Now, I’m not a fan of Baseball period, so don’t let this logo make you think I’m a Red Sox fan. We decided on a rather large size of 24”x24” overall, which will be more beneficial to me for the small pieces that needed cutting...

Rustic Ramblings

12-31-2006 07:46 AM by dennis mitchell | 3 comments »

It is the season I pretty much just want to shut down and watch football. (Boise State in the Fiesta bowl!) Sometimes the world can drain my spirit and the last place I want to be is behind the table saw. I have a fellow who wants me to do kitchen cabinets on a production scale. I wonder about all my peers who are successful building kitchens. The long hours they work. Always needing good help but only paying about half a living wage. The headaches and I see how they have lost the joy in doin...

New Works In Progress --by RusticWoodArt #3: "Wood Stories...."

04-26-2007 05:34 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Wood Stories: ”Bench Dogging Before Greene and Greene” ....ah yes, and then it all starts coming back into focus, as i relax my grip upon this place of fields and greens, where imagination comes calling and selling herself to the highest bidder of foolish dreams…. —-and i realize now, that i am one of those foolish dreamers with pockets full of golden star dust, who could never quite adjust to walking this place of earthen dust, by giving up my right to silent...
