Router-Based Inlay

04-03-2010 01:50 AM by thewoodwhisperer | 23 comments »

Inlay is a great way to adorn your woodworking projects. Even the simplest item can become incredibly compelling if it features a well-executed inlay. With the right materials and techniques, its just like painting with wood. Only “non-artistic” folks like myself can actually do it! If you are in the N. California are, be sure to take one of David Marks' marquetry and inlay classes. And below are a few items that I recommend using for this process: 1/16 Inch Router Bi...

I’m new to lumber jocks and glad to be here. I’ve taken a look at some of the projects and it’s unbelievable how cool some of this stuff is. I’m currently working on a baby tender for my little boy. Just put the whiskey plank on today and started celebrating. I still have a lot of work but will share some pics soon.

My First Plane Restoration and a New Use for Ketchup

04-02-2010 09:44 PM by JohnnyW | 7 comments »

Welcome to another plane restoration. This is my first proper plane, bought off eBay for £18 plus postage. It was in usable condition, but a bit rough around the edges. I’ve seen a few restorations on here lately and decided to have a go. I didn’t take any pictures of it before as I wasn’t planning a blog, but this is how it looks now: It took about a week, doing an hour or so each day. Here’s what I used (plus wire wool, and sandpaper): Some of the th...

Old School V. New School

04-02-2010 08:50 PM by HighRockWoodworking | 20 comments »

As a third generation woodworker and being a builder by trade, woodworking and creating has always been a passion. Growing up in the mountains of western North Carolina, I looked at my father and grandfather being master craftsmen and could not imagine ever having the knowledge they had, but my father said to me that someday I should become a better woodworker than he or my grandfather. He said the reason was that he had learned all that his father had taught him as well as what he had lear...

Not exactly woodworking, but close enough. #2: Well okay, not exactly FINE woodworking... Painted Trellis for Joseph's Coat rose bush.

04-02-2010 04:48 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

This is a project in progress actually. A very simple project in progress. The idea is simple. Build a simple 4’x8’ frame from PT stock that I can in turn attach a 4’x8’ trellis to. The entire assembly is to be painted to match the house, and attached to the side yard fence to give something for a newly planted Josephs Coat rose bush to climb. The trellis is painted in the creamy beige trim color of the house, and the frame (pending build) will be painted the burnt ...
