Chess set-- learning as I go #1: First steps

05-02-2009 10:16 AM by Orthodork | 4 comments »

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...

Strange names, weird looks Crazy stories & Rare Trees

06-08-2009 05:11 PM by California Urban Lumber | 6 comments »

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...

What was lost ...

09-29-2009 01:58 AM by ChunkyC | 4 comments »

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...

A journey into the workshop. #24: My head hurts for good reason...

10-30-2009 11:26 PM by dbhost | 9 comments »

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...

Starting a new woodworking business #2: new business

12-17-2009 07:34 PM by Wayne | 5 comments »

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...

Returning Home

12-31-2009 06:27 PM by Masterchief | 16 comments »

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...
