Lathe Tips #1: Quick changing Spindles.

12-21-2014 03:56 AM by CyF | 2 comments »

Every year in Mid January I go to this little Fiber arts show and vend. I make Crochet hooks, Yarn bowls and a bunch of other stuff as well.One of the things I make is called an Inkle Loom. They are used to weave long straps for a number of uses, Google it you’ll get the idea.The version I make has 10 pegs on it and I am currently building 3 of them. Since driving an hour and a half to pick up 5/8 Oak dowel rod didn’t fit into my schedule I decided to turn the dowels. Thirty piece...

Dave Plays with Wood Turning #2: Honey Dipper/Potato Masher

12-21-2014 01:50 AM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

Fooling around this evening, I cut off a length of maple that the road crew lopped off our curbside tree a few years ago and put it on my turning set up. Having recently watched a few videos on the ‘This Woodwork’ channel, nee ‘The Teen Woodworker’, I decided to try making a honey dipper. It’s still a little rough. When I showed my wife she said it was huge. Oh well. It was just an experiment anyway.

Round Kitchen Counter Project. #1: Rough Framing, Counter Top Progress

12-20-2014 09:37 PM by Jeff | 2 comments »

Not really going to get into much detail unless some of you have questions, mainly just going to post pics for those who like seeing projects in progress and ultimately a finished project. a lot of woodworking in this series so stay tuned if you want to see what I hope to be a really neat kitchen. :-) Most of this should be self explanatory, but just to highlight: wood eating counter, concrete counter tops, antiqued off white cabinets with some brick around the stove area. Large Pic ...

Trivets for Xmas #2: Quick finish

12-20-2014 04:58 PM by siavosh | 1 comment »

Simple little trivets for xmas make nice simple little gifts from scraps and a great warm up project (man, am I rusty).The nice thing is I can bundle the beams together, and putting them together in their inter-laced locking pattern needs no glue and might be a bit a brain teaser at first for the receiver. Happy holidays!

Thorsen House Cabinet #5: Finalising the carcasswork

12-20-2014 04:54 PM by EläväPuu | 0 comments »

Hi everyone – this post is more of a basic check-in than a large amount of progress. The build date on this project is still not set purely because I have other projects of higher priority. Specifically, I have a Gamble House dining room table and chairs to build. So anyway. This project will be pushed along through the design process whilst that one is playing out with perhaps a degree of crossover on when it will happen. Perhaps spring 2015? Based on my observations of the original...
