This Ones A Sleeper #1: Asian Inspired Bed

05-08-2009 02:49 AM by Emeralds | 2 comments »

First off, let me say that I started discussion of this project in my blog. I know realize that I should have used this Projects category but at the time I was doing a lot of SketchUp blogging and as things worked out it got posted in my blog just after I began planning it. The design is an amalgam of several pieces I saw and liked and it is to date the largest single piece I’ve attempted. I quickly realized that I had underestimated just about every aspect of the project includi...

Intarsia #8: Hummingbird Day 8

08-24-2012 02:24 AM by TripleB | 2 comments »

I have been very apprehensive about doing the actual Hummingbird, I honestly didn’t think I had the skills to be able to make the very tight color transitions in the body of the bird without having massive gaps to contend with. That’s why I started with the easy parts first. But after all is said and done, I think I did ok for a newbie. The top part of the body is Lace wood or Leopard wood, I thought it would give a good feather effect, but at this point, I’m thinking I s...

H-Frame Easel out of 2X4's #1: H-frame Easel - designed on the fly

04-15-2013 12:11 AM by luckysawdust | 2 comments »

My wife is an artist, and has had need of an Easel from which to work in order to keep in practice—only, her training is in the style of the ‘Old Masters’—from the French Academy, which has seen a bit of a resurgence in our modern day. All of this means, she wanted an easel that was perfectly vertical, with a tray, and a top-clamp (I honestly don’t know what else to call it, it’s my own term) that were vertically adjustable. So, like with most woodwork...

The Journey #2: Couple New Additions to the Shop

03-04-2014 07:19 AM by DitchDoc | 2 comments »

I have added a couple new things to the shop the past week. First off, I built some simple shelves on a french cleat system to get some things off of the bench top. Nothing fancy, but it works and I can customize it as I see fit. I also picked up a little box that holds knives and they spin real fast. The Dewalt 735X. I have played with it some and so far, I am very pleased with it. I recently started working on a shaker style coat rack. I hope to post pictures of it as...

Walnut Bread Box with Marquetry #4: Cutting the bread and a little spontaneous saw repair

04-10-2014 12:18 AM by Harriman | 2 comments »

Greetings all. I wanted to catch this project up to date. After the glue set on the marquetry, I need to clean up all that messy paper tape. Not to mention the fact that my shop-sawn veneers are never really exactly precisely the same thickness. Thus my difficulty with scraping the marquetry level. Little pieces invariably come up or chip in the process. So here’s what I do. This is the picture once the clamps come off: Not too much to look at yet. Then I’m back to my ro...

Looking for simple poker chip carrying case plan

01-28-2008 06:13 AM by blueshark | 2 comments »

Would like to build a portable poker chip carrying case (650 chips) for my son who will be turning 25 in early March. Have seen some examples, but they look too complicated for me or they seem more like a box than a carrying case… Any plans you can share or Web site to suggest? He currently uses an aluminum case which has taken a beating and is falling to pieces… Would prefer using oak or other harwood, which I will sand and stain myself. Completing this project on time woul...

Various Projects #3: Stocking/Coat hanger Part 3: The Finished Product

12-06-2008 11:22 PM by Tomcat1066 | 2 comments »

I normally don’t like posting another blog while I’ve got one on the front page, but since it’s been a few hours, I thought I would share the finished product. Yes…it’s all done! While it’s a simple project, it’s still mine and it’s finished. The hanger has been posted in my projects, but a more direct route is here. I see the flaws, but am still very proud of it. The chamfer was hand done. It was hand sanded as well, and hand painted to...

A quick story about 17 year old Walnut slabs

07-08-2009 10:36 PM by California Urban Lumber | 2 comments »

A word from Bill: Seventeen years ago my friend Roger Marschner came upon a large California Black Walnut stump in Chico, CA. While sitting on said stump contemplating life’s greater meaning and probably smoking too much of the local product, Roger began to wonder how long it would take a man to dig this beautiful thing out of the ground. Three days, seven chainsaw chains, four broken shovels and a myriad of sore muscles later, Roger was on his knees in a five foot hole with a Stihl 46 m...
