Jacaranda natural edge end grain goblet

08-27-2009 08:06 AM by Gary Fixler | 16 comments »

Two weeks ago, on a whim, I got home after work, sliced off a piece of smaller branch from my large pile of smaller Jacaranda branches (~2.5”-3” dia.), and turned a bark-rimmed goblet. Sorry for the gratuitous lighting :) Let’s fly into it… The inside is smooth, and today, 15 days of air-drying on my dining room table later, it still has no checks, even around the pith inside, or on the bottom of the base! Here’s my hand for some b...

Milling #1: It begins....

09-30-2009 02:16 PM by Broda | 3 comments »

I think I mentioned in my last blog that I love hearing/reading/seeing about wood gloats and also logs to lumber blogs. I haven’t done much in the way of blogs but, better late than never. A few weeks ago, me and dad went wood cutting. I usually come along to look out for fallen trees to take home and stick on the lathe. Lucky I went this particular time.there was a tall skinny, and by that I mean about 20m tall by about 250mm diameter, unidentified tree laying over a track. someone ...

Woodworking Bench #3: Finishing andFastening the Ttop

11-02-2009 03:59 AM by DocK16 | 4 comments »

Work on the work bench continured this weekend but slowly. The top was originally glued up in 5 sections each being planed before all were glued together. A few pics of the process.Yeah it’s real heavy top alone is close to 200 lbs and 40 board feet of lumberOkay so here’s the kicker. When gluing up the 5 sections it is done face down on the assembly table. Unfortunately when I took the clamps off and flipped it over I big Boo Boo. I had not flipped over the one plank with t...

I Am Back

11-19-2009 03:43 AM by ND2ELK | 31 comments »

Hi Guys & Gals I have not been looking much at the LJ site for the last month and a half because I have been mostly bow hunting during my free time. I shot a nice 9 point buck and decided it was time to get back in the shop again. While I was hunting, my new equipment was delivered. I got a Jet 14” Deluxe Pro Band Saw, Jet 17” Drill Press, Jet 12” Planer/Jointer Combo, Jet 1 1/2 HP Shaper, Jet 16-32 Drum Sander, Rigid Oscillating Edge Belt/Spindle Sander and a ...

Downstairs Built-ins Extravaganza! #15: Phase I complete-ish

12-19-2009 02:51 AM by BethMartin | 9 comments »

I know it’s been a while, but I am done with my woodworking for the winter, because I finished! All I need to do now is make some tile for the fireplace surround/hearth. (The baseboard molding of the cabinets and mantel is not actually attached yet, I just propped them up for the pic.) The picture is not that great – the finish looks a lot better in person – the mantel pics below show the color better. The mantel was the last part that I needed to do before I could mo...

the stained glass shop down-the-street commissioned me to make a couple hundred dollar frame.... the only stipulation for the frame is it is to-be-in-the Art and Crafts Style … wood, design and finish, will all be mine … the buyer doesn’t want to see it, until it is delivered.. ..

Producing a small Table

02-25-2010 12:15 PM by TemplateTom | 4 comments »

Recently I was requested to produce a couple of small tables for our church, not tables you would sit at but small tables to add a vase of flowers to elevate them of the ground 200mm high. This did create a problem because of the size of the various pieces I would require to produce in the construction. I needed to keep Safety as a high priority. The centre column was made up from six pieces of material at an angle of 60 degrees to form a hexagon. The three legs were produced from ma...
