Hello….... I have two old p.o. box doors late 1800’s with beveled glass and combination. I’m looking for a craftsman to build a cabinet for each. I’m looking for the wood and style to be indicative of the time period. I would like more of a long security drawer style. Please contact me @ 603-418-4329 Thank You Victor
After a busy weekend at Frank Klausz’s class, I headed out to Woodcraft yesterday for a day long workshop with David Ellsworth. Very cool. David is an excellent teacher. Knowlegeable (duh!), and very laid back. There were 10 in the class (I think). After doing a demo of making a natural edge bowl, we jumped in and started turning whatever it was that we wanted to work on. Some did natural edge bowls, some cut edge, and some hollow forms. I stuck to cut edge bowl – wound up ...
Wow, what a weekend! I spent last Saturday and Sunday learing from Frank Klausz. It was just a 2 day class, but I think we managed to pack a lot into it. Frank is one funny, funny guy! So, here’s my impressions of the class – plus and minus, and a recap of what I learned (at least I think I learned). Overall, the class was excellent. We had 15 students, with varying skill levels. The first part of day one was some background on Frank, and some good tech info on wood, wo...
In the last few months i have been watching my barn wood pile slowly fading away . It may have something to due the fact that i built close to 50 birdhouses in the last year . Well a few days ago i was out for a drive and i stumbled onto this old barn that was falling down .It is located about 5 miles out of town from where i live . I went and talk to the owner and he mentioned that it was great timing because he planned on taking the barn down this coming May . I told the farmer who i was...
I lamented last week that I just missed the closing time at the local bearing shop. I got there yesterday nice and early and they not only had the right bearings, but bearings with the exact same set of numbers stamped on the side. That gave me some confidence, even though the race covers looked a bit different. The man told me they were from their higher quality line of bearings, and here’s hoping. They were $10/ea., whereas Sears’ version were $4/ea., but I was happy to just get...
In the last blog I made a template for copying Cheese Boards.In this vid we will see how to use the template with the Torque Workcentre in overhead pin routing mode.. I hope you all enjoyed this as much as I did making it. .Just a small selection of cheese boards..Stay tuned …..If you thought the first year was good… you ain’t seen nuttin’ yet.
The Torque Workcentre can also be used as an over head pin router.To accomplish this you will need a template… basically a board with a groove cut in the shape of the item you want to copy.. so that the groove will move over a pin in the table and the router above will cut the shape below.. Very simple but care must be taken…Here is how to make a template…Next up will be using the template to make a cheese board... in Camphor Laurel of course..I will also be making a templat...
My Zone of Wood Art ….art is the interpretation of what is before you, and therefore needs no-out-side influence to make it more then it is in this moment. The problem that many have with art is that it is all-ways regulated to some other plane of our existence, out-side the time-work of where we are now. Because the many see art as so ‘other’, these many lost souls to the world of art, will in-deed all-ways be seeking for art as if it is some-thing that is found in the so ...
So I was continuing with my planter box build tonight, and would up thinking, gee the air coming through the quick connect is sort of weak tonight, and I was verified when I made the first pass through the planer and the hose clogged up. Shut the system down, and started tracking down the culprit. It would appear that a single plastic Home Depot Bag got sucked up, somehow made its way past the Thien separator, and up to the cross piece in the impeller grate. Some cleaning was in order, and a ...
Today was all about installing the router table tracks, but when it came time to screw in the screws, I realized that they weren’t exactly right. I made a mad dash to Home Depot and… http://bit.ly/cNNFGL
