Y’all may have seen the ambrosia maple chip-n-dip I posted in the project section a few days ago. Check out the Chip-N-Dip Finished blog post to see how I went about the process. This is just a very coarse blog post, a more in depth write up will accompany the next chip-n-dip bowl I make. Hopefully I’ll get another one turned before the week is out, but don’t count on a post that soon :) Hope y’all enjoy, have a great day!
Instead of working on the lathe stand this past weekend, the handsaw geek went a-rust huntin’. Several yard sales did not net very much of interest, as the ‘watch’ list for items is very narrow. Paydirt was found at one sale, however, as the peddler-of-the wares had a table with some vintage tools displayed on it. A veritable geek magnet. Among a pile of old wood handle screwdrivers, files, and hammers, these items were found: The plane is a Stanley #220 block, and the push...
I can't tell you all how many times when people see something new that I have done, they immediately say to me "That was easy for you." While I appreciate that others think that creating nice things is not difficult for me, I can't help but think of all the hours of unseen work and schooling that I have invested in myself to get to this point. I have always maintained that every new project teaches me something, and some of them are really a new adventure. Especial...
Not a thrilling photo today, but I had to get my feet back under me after the weekend. On Friday afternoon our well developed a problem. I had to call a plumber for this one. As plumber calls go, this one wasn’t that bad, though prepping for his arrival caused me to clean out a storage area of my shop and put that stuff in my shop proper. So today I worked on the legs. The only thing I need to do to the base at this point is saw some edging to hide the plywood edges and glue ...
I figured it’s time to start my blog on Lumberjocks, and what better way than to announce that I’ve started an Etsy store for my woodwork (so far just cutting boards, but more to follow) and my wife’s mosaics! If you want to take a look, it’s here:https://www.etsy.com/shop/GMosaicsAndWood?ref=hdr_shop_menu Regards,Patrick
The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #49: New Festool CMS style sliding top router table you can build yourself!
It’s been two years since we built our homemade sliding router table, and it’s time to make some improvements. This is one you HAVE to see! It may look like a regular router table, but the front of the top slides in a precision track, making it safer and more useful than any I’ve ever used. Great for coping rails, safely routing small parts, the possibilities are endless. It’s a great show, you might even laugh a little. So check it HERE! (Friend us on fac...
You can probably guess, given the time lapse between this post and my last one, that following the decision to redo the parquetry panel I did loose a bit of momentum on this project. However, I did cut a second marquetry panel and I am back on track. I made a few changes from the first version. I adjusted the size to better fit the top of the oar. One of the things I did not like about the first version was my choice to use dyed blue veneer for the sky and the cartoon like clouds. ...
Last coat of linseed oil is dry, all set to ship it out to the UK!
Got news this morning that the building I am leasing has been sold and I need to be out of there by the end of the year. So I did a little leg work (on my ATV) and went searching for a new place this morning. This may very well be one of the best things that has happened to me, within two hours I found a temporary place that I can move into if needed, and a permanent shop twice the size of my current one which is two blocks away, and an even larger permanent shop that is one block away. ...
I just started the two end tables to go with the entertainment center in my last project posting, working on the larger of the two at 24” X 21”, and determining the top’s appearance.All of my boards are about 7” wide, with one board at 9 1/2” & is flat sawn. I would like to make a one board top, not possible obviously, so I am stretching two 9 1/2” side by side to 21” wide:In so doing, I decided to add one additional board(s) in the middle of thes...
