So you want to go pro #13: "The Price is Right" ?

01-17-2008 08:45 PM by odie | 3 comments »

Well, one more bowl turned and one more blog entry to write. And believe me, this is a good time to write this. It’s 4 degrees outside and 34 degrees in the shop. This topic is coming to a close. There are only a couple left to do I can think of, unless you have questions. Hell, there must be a couple of questions in Turlock. This is a tough topic to tackle. Say that 5 times really quick. Your pricing structure is this entries topic. The first component of any price structure is the cost. ...

Walnut Beds #1: The Rough Stuff

12-28-2009 09:36 PM by Andy Brownell | 3 comments »

I’ve started a new project over the last couple of weeks. It’s two solid walnut beds (Full Size) for each of my kids.I’m making two different styles, heavily influenced by Thomas Moser’s New Century China bed and American Bungalow beds. I’ve worked on other beds in the past including a Pencil Post bed I made as a wedding gift to my wife about 10 years ago. This was after working on some projects for Jeff Miller of J. Miller Handcrafted Furniture. He published ...

The New Workbench Journey #8: Workbench Base Completed

08-17-2010 11:41 PM by DrJosh | 3 comments »

Well, it has been a while since I posted any update on my workbench build progress, but it has been in the high 90s with heat indexes in the 105+ range…so working in a non-climate controled garage shop was tough. I had to work in short bursts and that made for slow going in a one man shop. Anyway, I now have the base of my new workbench complete and I’m now building the top. The first pic shows the primary base construction.This second pic shows the same base with a few extra ribs...

Sunshine Yacht Tender Model #9: Keel and Deadwood

12-21-2010 05:24 PM by kharder | 3 comments »

It’s been a busy fall, but I’m trying to get back into the model now that i have some time over the winter. Some of these are old pictures i was too busy to post, so i’m going back and retroactively posting the construction that the molds are all set up, it’s time to cutting and shaping that beautiful wood from HobbyMills. Just like in a real boat, it all starts with the keel timber which forms the backbone of the whole boat. In the lofting below, the keel...

A whale of a time (Marquetry) #1: The Plan

04-28-2011 02:57 PM by Chris Davis | 3 comments »

I’m starting a very exciting project. Anything new that I try is exciting for me. I love new things and new techniques. I build a lot of murphy beds, as you can see from my post, but when I got customer wanting to add a whale design to one, I was all in. I don’t consider myself an artist or my work art, so this would be my first attempt at something like that. I’ve heard and read a little on marquetry and decided this would be the direction I’d take the customer....

48" Pocket Door #8: Preparing the bookmatched panel blanks

10-12-2011 05:45 AM by GregD | 3 comments »

It has been a long time since my last blog post. Sorry. I was more intent on getting the door done than writing about it. At this point the stile and rail blanks are complete, so I turned to the panels. One option was to make each panel the full thickness of the door – 1 3/4 inches – and raise the panel on each side. A second option is to make panels half the thickness of the door – 7/8 inches – raise the panel on 1 side, and use 2 panels back-to-back for each...

Wheelchair Accessible Moxen Vise

03-07-2013 05:32 AM by gsuing | 3 comments »

For the disabled woodworker, wrangling the standard front vise handle while dovetailing is a constant burden. See how the vise handle interferes with the legs. Enter the Moxen Vise. This vise was built from hardware made by Benchcrafted. Here is the Moxen Vise in standard mode. That’s great, but it is too high for the disabled woodworker. The solution is to flip the Moxen Vise over and lower it about four inches. Here it is flipped over and ready to be attached ...
