Woodcraft in the Philipines #3: Logging

04-03-2009 05:34 AM by kiwi1969 | 7 comments »

Haven,t been out and about much so no pretty pictures this time. Just been reading up on the Forestry industry here and was a little shocked by what I found , although after nearly 4 yrs here not much shocks me, but this did. Did you know that Luan is almost extinct here! Luan is the primary wood sold as Philippine mahogany, among about six other species including Tanguile, meranti, various species of shorea, saraya, bagtikan, and mayapis . According to Holden Clarke of Clarke veneers and pl...

Treadle Lathe workbench #5: lots of progress on frame today.

04-03-2009 04:00 AM by jth2bmtsu | 4 comments »

Assembled lots of the frame today, thanks to my brother’s help. We also were able to find some wheels 40% off. I think adding these to the project is a good idea considering how heavy this thing is going to be when finished. The frame dimensions are approximately 5 foot long, 3 foot wide. The next step will be to get the flywheel spinning on its axle, but will save for another day.

Log bed Sakura (cherry) #1: Hanami season, peeling

04-03-2009 03:32 AM by Junji | 9 comments »

In this time of the year, everybody goes to “Hanami” (meaning watching flower), but it usually has to be cherry blossom, not other flower in Japan. Actually it’s very nice season for a picnic or outside party after the long winter. Here is some image of Hamami. The best time to see the flower itself ends only for a week the longest, and it just started in Kobe now. But for me, I am not seeing flowers, but the skin of the cherry tree this year… I just started a...

A House Warming Gift #3: Cutting out Letters

04-03-2009 03:17 AM by littlecope | 0 comments »

Finally got some free time today! Started out by deciding it was a great day to clean up around the Scroll Saw! And not only for the Camera! I’ve been looking at how small the dot is over the i and the apostrophe on this tiny sign I’m making and realized that when they fall out, I’ll never find them unless I police the area a ...

Its was about and 1/8” to big. Who has a hose that fits in their triton router and where did you get it? ThanksSpaids

WorkBench #1: Rites of passage

04-03-2009 02:42 AM by grimt | 6 comments »

Somebody told me a bench should be a woodworkers first project. Something to do with rites of passage. So here I am with 800NZD (or South Pacific Pesos) worth of European Beech in my garage and a design on sketchup. When the wood was delivered, most of it was too heavy for a weedy little guy like me to carry.. Those babies are 3.1m long! Hare is another picture after I eventually dragged it in the garage. You can see my current “workbench” in the background and ...

Wood IDs #10: Found limb - Bottlebrush

04-03-2009 01:51 AM by Gary Fixler | 10 comments »

This branch, found a week ago now, was a mystery for awhile, but then I accidentally identified it while looking up something about paperbark trees, which are in some ways related. Callistemon, or Bottlebrush Trees, in the Myrtaceae family, are – like many LA trees – native to Australia. My coworker and officemate, who knows about my log and tree-collecting shenanigans told me one morning that the city had roped off a big branch that had fallen. He saw it on his drive in to work. ...

Router Table #1: Getting this project off to a late start on Lumberjocks

04-03-2009 01:15 AM by Jamie | 6 comments »

Well, It’s been a long time since I have posted anything on here, and I figured that since I have already started a new project that isn’t complete yet, this would be the perfect time. For the past couple of years, I have been wanting to build a router table ala Norm. Well, my birthday was last friday (March 27) and my wife was asking me what I wanted. Well, long story short, I started out with a couple sheets of 3/4” oak plywood, and a sheet of MDF. This past weekend...
