With the arrival of my new bandaw, I figured it was time to try it out on a project. Thanks to Patricks Workshop on Youtube, I was able to have a fairly easy project to give it a test run. These bandsaw scoops are easy to create and would make nice gifts. Stop over and check out the video HERE and make sure to subscribe for woodworking and blacksmithing videos!
Well I’ve seen these posted here and on other sites on the web and just love them. My only problem is I’m relatively new to woodworking and could only guess as to how to make one. I thought if I did a blog maybe with lots of good feedback, I could figure this out. So here’s how I made my first attempt. I’ve only done segmented and green bowls so far, and I noticed all the other “Melting pots” were glued up in a laminate style. I decided to do the sa...
I was given a job to build a frame with diagonal slats spanning the inside, where the corner of the end slats fitted into the corner of the frame and the slats met equally throughout the frame, at a given angle.It was easy doing it with three slats for this job, however, I thought there must be some kind of formula, that I could devise to be able to solve for the exact width of the slats, so as to save time and materials cutting and fitting trying t get an even array of angled slats. So I...
... so little time. Why do weekdays crawl by and weekends go before you know it. Well Somethingbrownwood is not going to do for the bottom of this box. A phrase I’m sure Shipwright is well aware of I don’t want to ‘spoil the ship for a ha’peth of tar’. I have a little Mondo left. This I re-sawed into four 2 mm slices. On the table saw, you don’t want to know. I made veneers of this piece( outside bottom of the box), a filler and some 1.5 mm...
Steve Carmichael has an incredible imagination when it comes to woodworking. He has responded to many of the challenge builds and contests and the result of his labor is always something original, cool and doable by many of us. His shop is in the ‘wife’s side of the garage’ as he put it and his videos are always very well produced. He also injects humor into his work and is always giving us something fun to watch. Even my daughter likes to watch him. She has informed me...
I make a “gift basket form pallet wood. This was fun project and can’t beat free wood! This will be some of the gift baskets we give this year for Christmas. Thanks for watching! Link
It’s been almost three months since I’ve done any woodworking, and I figured using up some wood lying around to make trivets for some family members’ Christmas stockings would be a nice easy way to get my groove back. Man oh man, it felt good sharpening a plane blade and making some curls. There’s only so much time a man can spend in front of a computer, this felt real good. I’ll be taking my sweet lazy time making these for next week’s fligh...
Before I mortised the legs, I decided to inset the nut for the leg vise. Easier to do it now than later. (Thank you, Sylvain and tsangell!) This gives me another 1 1/4” of vise travel. If I need more, I will invert the nut. That can be easily accomplished later. The process was to lay out crosshairs on a piece of scrap and mark the center: The layout lines are needed to line up the template with the center of where the nut goes. Then drill out a hole with the big Forstner bit &...
I decided to post a few (10) reviews of the usual suspect HF freebies I pick up. With an average of 2.8, I’d say you can go wrong fairly often with HF freebies. Here’s the list of reviews: 27 LED worklight/flashlight – 4 stars 3.5 inch 9 LED flashlight – 5 stars 25' tape measure – 2 stars 6 piece screwdriver set – 1 star Swivel Lens Headlamp – 1 star 6 inch magnetic parts holder – 5 stars 4 inch magnetic parts holder – 5 ...
One very clever artist! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjMDgG24Y3U
