This is a photo taken with my iPhone of the brace being refurbished. I’m really just getting to grips with downloading using the iPhone and Photobucket?? Hopefully it is successful? OMG it works! In this pic you get a closer look at the chuck body- This is held in a ‘cheapo’ vice I bought from ‘ALDI’ (Wal-Mart, but even cheaper, to our American cousins) years ago. It is very handy cos you can adjust it to suit what you are doing. It originally had...
Yesterday was spent getting things ready for the site update. Between finishing up the patterns for the new stuff, designing and cutting the new free pattern that I am offering and even drawing up a couple of additional quick designs it kept me pretty busy. I finished the pattern for the calendar topper and that is about ready to go. It came out to be 22 pages long, and includes all 12 months. I left the April and December months for Easter and Christmas respectively, as people can stil...
Well, I’m finally back to my Bombe’ chest again. Sorry for the wait but I came to realize that my carving skills left alot to be desired. As a matter of fact they were practically none exsistant! So here are some more pics please exscuse the bad B&C feet.
As of writing this, the porch glider is 100% assembled – no more wood to cut, no more screws to screw. Just a lot of detail work and then the outdoor oil goes on. First up, views of the armrests and the brace that ties them together across the back. I left the piece of wood to the left in order to give me something to brace against when gluing up. I used two wood shims to force the wood up against the shoulder of the other piece, ensuring a perfect 90 degree angle. Once the glue drie...
This morning was a sunny and clear day out…....the kind of day that actually fit the season. Our earth is ever changing, it seems these days people all over the map are in store for surprises from mother nature, some scary and some just plain hard to figure out…lol. I was driving in my truck…it was crazy out, cars all over, people hustling and racing everywhere. It’s so hard not to find yourself becoming the same way…. impatient, hurried and a bit stressed. ...
So I decided to create a new blog for talking about ongoing additions to my attempt at a workshop. My posts on my current project, Jakes chair, has seemed to be talking a lot about the workshop situation. I’m planning on doing more and more to my shed to make it a work space over time, and another blog contributes to the LJ site I think. I really like this site and want to contribute even though I am a really novice woodworker, and don’t dedicate a ton of time to it as of now. ...
This video started with an examination of a musical recorder patterned after Phillippe Bolton; and a look back and back to the process of how one pear tree made the wood for this instrument. It is a tribute to the “wood” in the term: “woodworker”. This video can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMxMMnNUpm8
Hello everybody ! I’ve make some cutting boards with some scrap, but I need some advise of the LJ’s community:- which finishing I can use? I want a finish that can be use for an alimentary use (Wooh, many “use” in this sentence …)- and what did you think of this wood’s combination ? Here’s the 3 cutting boards : ——- First one——- From the left to the right, I’ve used : Teak, a “red African wood”...
For those of you who don’t know, I make Adirondack Chairs.I’ve been in business since about early may and have made a total of 7 chairs so far. Nothing has sold. I had the idea that I would make matching chairs and a table and maybe it would fare better than the singles. In less than 4 days on craigs list, I’ve sold two sets at $400 each. Just got my latest sale today, it’s a nursery here in town that wants a good display next to their fountains. Things are...
Got a lot done today. My wonderful wife got up with the kids this morning to allow me to get down early to the garage and continue work on the workbench. My first task was to rip the 2×4s for the top by about 1/2” to make nice flat edges, which will (in theory) make a nice smooth, sharp edged top. (Just a note to my fellow Lumberjocks—-this is just copied from my wordpress blog which is riddled with pictures which took me a long time to edit and post…so since I hav...
