Boxes! Boxes! Boxes!

02-26-2010 04:44 AM by mkrok | 1 comment »

So when I decided that I will take the plundge back into woodworking I had to decide on what kinds of projects I would make. As I have said before I’m not very good. So what can I make that will help me with my skills? I went back to the basics, boxes. In my opinion, boxes are the basic building block for just about everything. Let’s face it, if you cant cut straight lines or make square joints then your projects will look like mine. Boxes will be fun too; everyone needs b...

Hand Made End Table 2010 #1: Roughing Out The Base

02-26-2010 04:29 AM by Walnut_Weasel | 2 comments »

As a few of you may know, I am a woodworking newbie. I just took the plunge last summer and purchased a bandsaw. Money is still pretty tight for us but I have been able to pick up a few basic tools here in there. I decided to buy a hand plane simply because I could buy a nice plane for much less than I can buy a jointer and planer. I immediately became hooked on hand tools. I am still in the middle of making a small tea box for our kitchen table. I have most of the box complete but I st...

A Flag Display Box #6: Turning a Page...

02-26-2010 04:28 AM by littlecope | 13 comments »

The Bad News is I’ve done virtually no work on this project of late…but the Good News is I’ll be getting the Lexan to continue this project sometime this weekend!! The work should proceed pretty quickly after that…In the meanwhile, I thought I’d share a little of what has kept me so busy.It seems the latest “Maladie du jour” the shrinks have “discovered” is called Hoarding. As usual, they’re late to the party, our Grandparents could ...

Everything for Sale

02-26-2010 04:24 AM by mkrok | 5 comments »

Wow I just read the posting rules !!! Ok from now on every project I post is FOR SALE. Maybe I’ll make my 2 cents back some day. Now if anyone really wants to buy the crap I make, that is their problem. After you see some of my projects think you will get my sense of humor. To be perfectly honest, I’m scared as heck to post my work, to a site full of woodworkers. First thing we ALL say when we see a project – ”I can make that” Check back soon.

Building a new handplane.

02-26-2010 03:16 AM by Sean | 4 comments »

Finally got a digital camera!For a while I have wanted to make a Krenov style hand plane. I have recently been going more and more into handtools, and wanted to enjoy making the plane, as well as enjoying the feel of a tool sculpted to my hands.I started with the book on the subject, Making and Mastering Wood Planes by David Finck. I’ve been having trouble with my lumberyard finding any decent stock, either Maple, or Beech, or anything else to the size I need. And plus, I’d lik...

Project 1? #1: New Project for DD Woodworking Class

02-26-2010 01:15 AM by lincster | 3 comments »

Wednesday we used computers to research what our next woodworking project would be. This was due to it being very cold (for Florida) outside – 60 degrees. We used Lumberjocks website as well as buildeazy for ideas. Not only were the students getting familiar with using a web browser, but they were getting excited about finding a project to do. We found 17 ideas and I will narrow the field down to about 3 or 4 based upon 1) what tools we have 2) the skill sets they need to learn 3)...

Fun with Inlays #1: Sand Shaded Fan

02-26-2010 12:20 AM by IowaWoodcrafter | 2 comments »

I’m learning how to create my own inlays. This is my first attempt at creating a fan using sand shading. For those of you who have not done sand shading I have a few tips: 1) Use a cast iron skillet. I found a small one for less than $10 at a local store.2) Use fine grain sand. I found a 40 pound bag at Menards for about $5.00. (Menards is a chain of stores in the mid-west similar to Lowes or Home-Depot. I like Menards better because they carry stuff like 4’x8’ shee...
