http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zeld0aVWT24 In this video I go over how to mark out and design a pattern. I also cut the inaly out on the scroll saw this is really the only way to inlay is using the scroll saw. In the next video I will set the inlay into the wood but before that I will cut the hole for the inlay. www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com
I decided to create a chess set in which the pieces would be the ‘names’ of each piece—I’m pretty new to woodworking, so this is a learn as I go process. I’ve started by doing some basic prototyping of the ‘pawns’ Here’s the first go at them—the ‘real’ ones will have some sort of symbol at the top, to make the board easier to ‘read’. They will also likely be thinner, and won’t be made out of scrap plywo...

Most people know about trees like Pine, Oak, Maple & Walnut (if you’re in woodworking and haven’t heard of those trees, you’re either in the wrong business or on the wrong planet); but there are some trees you don’t hear about every day. Trees can be fun, dangerous, or just plain old strange. Check it out: 10. The Elephant Tree: These trees are relatively short, growing to about 10’. Their trunks and branches are reminiscent of an elephant’s legs and...
The Michigan Woodworkers Guild arranged a tour of the Hardwoods of Michigan sawmill in Clinton Michigan today. It was amazing to see the process, they have kilns that hold 600,000 bd ft of lumber. They currently are drying 22,000,000 bd ft per year. a few more photo’s to come
Seen at the Frankenmuth, MI Autofest Friday Sep 11. I don’t know who built it.
I was rummaging through the house looking for my box of 100 1/4-20 Tee Nuts when I discovered my compass from my HS drafting days! It’s still in the original case, a little worse for ware, but the compass is in like new condition. Hummm maybe have to add a new case for the compass to the list… Dang it! Never did find those Tee nuts! I found the #2’s, #4’s, #6’s and #8’s but not the 1/4-20’s. If you see them, let me know! Chunk Any one el...
So last night, I took one of my bowl blanks, I believe this stuff is Camphor due to the smell (it smells like Vicks), but I wouldn’t testify to that in court. The wood came from a tree that had been storm fall from Hurricane Ike last year. So anyway… Like I said I took one of my bowl blanks, about 6” in diameter, and mounted it to the face plate, roughed it out, and created the tenon on the bottom of the blank. Removed it from the face plate, and mounted it on my chuck...
Thanks to all who responded. Just in case you’re interested, my business plan is beginning to take shape. I have a web site up and running now (WAYNEWERKS.COM). I have displayed several of my products there, but haven’t done any pricing yet. I’ve also set up an account on ETSY.COM, but haven’t much luck there yet. I’m sure I’ll need to add more products in order to reach a larger demographic and increase the likelyhood of making sales. I’ve also set u...
Hey everyone, please forgive the absence. It has bee over 8 months since I have last posted a project on here due to being Deployed overseas since April of last year. Serving onboard USS Fort McHenry out of Little Creek Va. It has been nothing less than exciting. From the 120 degree days in Kuwait to the stormy Atlantic seas, I will have to say I have sorely missed the shop. But nothing compares to serving our great country. Hope to ge in the shop here soon and produce something worth p...
