Thinking about the nothing new but the glue challenge, and recycling...

04-06-2010 08:04 PM by dbhost | 15 comments »

Martin posted up an interesting challenge today in his blog. The Nothing New But The Glue Challenge. And while I do plan on putting out a project from this challenge, well it got me to thinking. And I am not sure about other woodworkers, but I learned from my Dad, my Grandfather, my uncles etc… that what is being proposed here is a good thing. Now the whole environmental impact thing aside, it just sort of makes sense to utilize everything you’ve got to the best of your abilit...

Headed to Class #2: Cutting dovetails

04-06-2010 06:06 PM by MickeyD | 4 comments »

I have been busy practicing dovetails. If there is a way to do it wrong I have done it, but last night I was able to make several “right”. I have developed “tennis elbow” with all the hammering with the mallet. It will be a good story to tell the doctor when I get home. We just bought a lathe and Kindlingmaker is having fun making lots of shavings, but I won’t touch it until I get back from class. The poplar practice table is put together and looks very presentab...

Box #1: Box Making

04-06-2010 05:22 PM by joshtank | 8 comments »

I’ve only done a few projects thus far. And this is my first time making a box. Here is what I have so far. The top is heart pine and poplar. Still need to do some sanding, add a finish and hinges. Here it is uncut. This is a different box – but here’s the jig for cutting the splines. And the splines drying.

The local museum, which I work at as a volunteer part time, puts on month long exhibitions of local associations and art work. There’s a small glass cabinet (40” x 20” x 9”) there which is rarely used. Our curator, Jenny, has said that I can show some of my boxes in it, any time in the year I like. I’m going for July/August as thats when our school holidays are and visitor figures are highest. What an opportunity. What to show? At least most of my work is ...

Woodworking: Mile 2.

04-06-2010 12:52 PM by Galirex | 2 comments »

Njarrrrrrr !!!!Man I’m itching to work on my ‘butterbox’, but it is only Tuesday night, & it’s still a long hike to saturday before I can get back to the clubhouse to progress PROJECT-1. I have been to the 2 DIY shops in town to look at woodworking tools, but it’s quite clear (and yes, I know very little at this stage, but still) that the tools they have is not going to go the distance. Mitre-10 don’t even have table saws, and Bunnings only stock 1 &...

Dan's Blackbutt Roubo Bench #9: Handles: Part 2

04-06-2010 10:25 AM by DoctorDan | 3 comments »

Some of you may remember a previous post, where I was looking for someone to turn the handles required for the bench. Old Pete from the Australian Woodwork Forums answered the call. The original handle brain storm. The completed project, arrived in the mail today. The timber is Australian Blackwood. Pete, was more than generous, turned two alternate handles for the wheels, and two handles for the pins, and offered to re-make them if they don’t feel right. I do like the online wood...
