Drive By Truckers, g@!%*#$ Lonely Love. WARNING, SOME EXPLICIT LYRICS. The Drive By Truckers are not a “country” band. They are a “Southern Rock” band, but if you just have to label them country then they could be called “ALT” country or “Outlaw” country,haha..
First, the project started with a hunt for the right wood, using the original pistol handle as a guide in finding a piece of appropriate size. After transferring the basic dimensions onto the wood, make a rough cut with a bandsaw. Afterwards, re-sawed the wood using a bandsaw to create a new handle blank. The next step involves routing out the inside of the handle halves to slide in the metal tang of the pistol. Transfer the unique shape of the metal tang onto the insides of...
Todays a good day, I while ago I applied to youtube for a partnership, I had been waiting for a long time by now. The day after I joined Lumber Jocks I was accepted… YAY! I’m not superstious in any way but Lumber jocks seems to be having a good effect on my woodwork and everything else to do with it. For those who havn’t check out my channel it is: http://www.youtube.com/user/TeenWoodworker On top of the good news about my partnership acceptence today I recie...
We made it through the first day pretty well. There are funny stories, of course and incidents, but I am going to keep this really short today for obvious reasons. Getting through customs and over the border was a lot more than we thought it would be. Usually the Canadians are the ones that scrutinize everything because they like to slap taxes on all that you bring over. But I was surprised that it was the US customs agents that were being pretty picky. Since the boxes were filled with...
Wil and I are sharing the garage space, for woodworking and motorcycle. And due to also sharing the garage with the cars this will be an exercise with space management (more like magic). The bike is also in transit, and he wants to enjoy it (norton 75 commando) first before he tears it apart and restores it, And my tools are also in transit before I can get them set up. And the planner, scrollsaw, saw, and a few others are stowed away in the garage cupboards. The bandsaw is also on its way...
I did not have a lot of energy by the time I got done with everything else that I had to do, so my “mini-roubo” was just a bit out of reach. I still wanted to do something, so I went to the scrap heap and found a piece of walnut large enough to split down to a more straight grained piece. The goal here is to make a scraper shave, here are the prospective parts in there rough format the now straight grained walnut, a piece of desert ironwood (sometimes the scrap pile really pays...
You all know that hubby and I have recently started our own small business…North Country Rustics. It should come to no surprise to anyone that I consider myself pretty handy. I have marginal art skills, marginal tool skills, a pretty creative mind, and a real desire to “create”. I also boast some pretty good computer skills. Yet I feel completely lost when it comes to really getting my business off the ground. I’ve sold some items but mostly to family and friends...
So I finally got around to sharpening some blades yesterday—several chisels and a plane iron. Everything was going fine. I have a honing guide but I just felt like doing it freestyle. Also, I usually do the Scary Sharp method with adhesive sandpaper on a slab of granite. This time though, I got out an old, two-sided water stone that I haven’t used in years. I went through several chisels and the plane iron and got hair-shaving edges on all of them. But on the last chisel, I put th...
Here’s a Vertex pen in Gun Metal finish with a Cocobolo wood blank. This is the first Vertex pen that I’ve made, I put 8 coats of CA finish and buffed. Thanks for looking.
