Is is a Web or Blog?

1964 days ago by closetguy | 4 comments »

It’s difficult to type right now because I decided to run my bandsaw blade part of the way through my right middle finger Sunday afternoon. Thank goodness it was just the ¼” blade. I hate having to sand blood off a project. I just went through a huge web site overhaul this week. It was a big decision to commit the time, but the results were worth the effort. When I started Appalachian Craftsmen last year, I needed to get an e-commerce site up rather quickly. I flashed back seven year...

The First Step In Making A Wooden Utensil #1: Choosing The Right Piece Of Wood.

1964 days ago by osageman | 8 comments »

I can be reached at: I will have the photo of the spoon I did the “test” with on my page tonight. It looks lighter in the photo (because of the camera flash) It all starts with the choosing the right piece of wood for the wooden utensil you are wanting to make. BUT, the MOST important consideration is, asking your wife what would suit her best, taking into consideration the size of her hand (not yours) I’m sure if you make it to fit “your ...

Shop done. Let's build something #4: Doors made!

1964 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

Ok, this was nerve wracking but by measuring everything 30 times I managed to make two doors for the corner cabinet and they seem to have come out okay without any major faux pas. My first raised panel doors. The new bosch router and freud panel bits worked out fine. My homemade router table got it’s first serious use too. Way cool. This is a real rush.

Sketchup Shorts #3: Going to the Lumberyard - Virtually

1964 days ago by PurpLev | 8 comments »

so you wanted to use specific materials in your Sketchup project? exotic/local lumber? metals? leather? other? I saw this subject raised in one of DaveR’s latest blogs, and it’s a fairly simple thing to do in Sketchup. You can use any material you so desire in sketchup, but first, we need to ‘make’ that material. Creating new Materials in Sketchup (Using live materials as source) 1. get your material ‘source’ – this can be any photo – e...

Hand Tool Journey #2: My first Krenov Style Plane

1964 days ago by Blake | 9 comments »

I made my first plane! I used the blade from one of those old wooden planes I had. As you can see I had a variety of these old planes with different style blades. Straight, concave, and a couple different radii of convex blades: Here are some progress photos… Making the Body: I started out with a block of Koa that I got on our honeymoon in Kauai, Hawaii. Look, two plane bodies! I used the width of the blade as a guide to cut my block into slabs. I...

Bowed keyboard- Streichklavier #2: It's about to stand on its own...

1964 days ago by JonJ | 4 comments »

Over the weekend, I got the case all glued together. Ideally I would have like to let the dovetails hold it all together, but hopefully I won’t ever need to take it apart. I got the bottom cut and set in a rabbeted channel in the bottom, but still have to glue it.I got one of the cabriole legs done, and the other 2 are glued up ready to cut. I couldn’t wait and had to prop it up and get a look. If the whole picture doesn’t show up of the leg, click on it, and I think it will...

Chess Set #1: Planning Stages

1964 days ago by Xander | 3 comments »

I planned on making a chess set for my Dad for xmas. I picked the wood I wanted to use for the darker pieces, found a pattern and had plans on getting started. I made a test cut in some basswood just to check for any “gotchas” in the pattern. Wow who would have known such a simple pattern would be so impossible to cut. Sure did look easy on paper. Needless to say I modified them a bit and am hoping this will work out a bit better. If you are interested I put a link here to...
