Garden Chair #9: Still at the back

04-05-2010 10:00 PM by Zuki | 0 comments »

Back at the back today. I started by drilling out the mortises for the back of the chair. A few minutes with a sharp chisel and they were cleaned up. Next I formed the vertical pieces. Pull saw and sanding made a decent replica of the original. I clamped up the upper back piece so that I could round over the top front edge. I chucked up a round over bit in my Mastercraft plunge router and no go. It would not run. Darn it. I gotta dig up the receipt and bring it back. Tha...

So for the first real project I am posting…I am making a couple of bookshelves to mount on the wall over the side tables next to our bed in the master bedroom. I have one built, and should finish the second tonight. Picture coming soon! -Silas EDIT OK, finally got a pic working! EDIT 2 OK, so photobucket won’t let me resize it. No matter how many times I do, it quickly reverts back to the original size. Still working on it… EDIT 3 Another try&#...

Vortex 4 Pattern

04-05-2010 08:30 PM by BritBoxmaker | 9 comments »

This is a bit of an experiment. I usually use Ebony and Sycamore for my geometric wood pattern. I’ve decided to substitue Pau Amarello (yellow) for the Sycamore to see what this would do to the contrast. This is what I’ve got so far. ! 6.jpg! The Amarello appears to be more open grained than Sycamore and I’ve had problems with it holding on to the Ebony dust during the sanding process. I’ve vacuumed the pa...

found wood #19: Okay, too much wood now...

04-05-2010 06:59 PM by Gary Fixler | 4 comments »

I’d love to get these, but conifers don’t really call to me like the angiosperms. The wood is usually soft and sappy, and I grew up surrounded by pine. It’s what everything decorative and utilitarian was made from, so I’m a little burned out on it. Now these, they call to me through sheer size. I think most of that is 3’ diameter or better. I’d love to have a nice portable band mill and a flatbed, and an MS 880 STIHL Magnumâ„¢ Chain Saw with a 59 inch guid...

Greentower / greenhouse BLOG.

04-05-2010 06:53 PM by mafe | 13 comments »

When your garden are app. 6×4 meters, a greenhouse can be a challange…So I had put this idea away – untill one day I drove my car, and some one had put on the street some old windows for trash. The windows were put on the back seat, and then in my little garden, so I could think.Some thoughts later (weeks acually), I was ready to sketch, and the idea of a greentower was born. And yes, the idea only…, so now it was time to buy some wood, cut it up in the sizes nee...

Teak vs. Ipe

04-05-2010 06:02 PM by newtool | 4 comments »

Hello, I have a ski boat with a teak platform. The platform is old and getting a little weak so I was going to reinforce the platform from underneath using teak. A friend of mine suggested using ipe rather than teak. Does anyone know if Ipe is a good replacement for Teak in regards to marine use? The bottom of the platform does get wet during boating operation.

04-05-2010 03:09 PM by Broda | 3 comments »

Hey everyone,pretty good score this time (for me anyway) My dad and I were out looking for some turning wood this afternoon. We’d been looking for ages when I suggested we have a look up a track where we found THIS last time. Good suggestion…. this is what I took home- this one weighed about 15 kg (33 pounds) Saw for scale this one weighs about the same, but its a bit shorter the beast- this one’s under 2 ft but weighs 25kg (55 pounds) This was ...
