Chevalet de Marqueterie #1: Part #2

05-18-2015 08:29 AM by TobiasZA | 4 comments »

Morning.Paul, thanks so much for your enthusiasm and support. Thanks Dutchy for following my build. Below are a few pictures of the beginnings of the build. With me not using a table saw anymore, I have been cutting the joints, especially the bridle and M&T joints, by hand and I find immense enjoyment and satisfaction in doing them. Considering the time it used to take to set up the tenoning jig, cross checking the angle of the blade etc etc, I am finding that a good cup of coffee, no ma...

Chevalet de Marqueterie #3: Some Progress and Pictures

05-21-2015 10:23 AM by TobiasZA | 2 comments »

Morning all. I have made a reasonable amount of progress on the various parts. Today’s job is the seat frame. This is made of locally grown air dried Blue Gum. Heavy wood! Below are a few more pics to bring the project up to date. I started wandering around Inkscape last night….”Daunting” is a phrase that comes to mind. Anyway, I have a few projects for clients that I have held off until the Chevy is ready to work, these were originally planned to do with a birdR...

Why buy it when you can make it! #34: Basement Wall Cabinets [Part 1]

05-25-2015 03:39 AM by paxorion | 0 comments »

When my wife and I bought our townhouse, I promised to take on some DIY projects to improve the storage options. When I took up woodworking, I amended that promise to make cabinets to improve the storage options in our house. Fast forward 7 years, I decided to finally get to the first project on the list. I picked up 2 sheets of 3/4 birch plywood from Home Depot on Friday night. Had them cut in the store and after moving them into my basement, I committed to breaking them down sooner ra...

turning redwood logs on a lathe

05-28-2015 12:13 AM by BigD1 | 3 comments »

I need a memory boost. I watched a video of a gentleman from Ireland, who turns Redwood Logs on a wood lathe, that uses a chain saw mounted in a bracket, with saw running full R.P.M’s and he turns the logs by hand. His lathe is massive and is mounted in a concrete block. He turns the logs into chairs, and also turns wooden sculpture’s of abstract design. I believe the demo of turning logs was still photo. He then demo’s how to turn a lidded box on a shop lathe, to a class of...

Suggestions welcome, but no guarantees

05-31-2015 08:17 PM by Dave Rutan | 5 comments »

I’m pretty sure this wood is from the trunk of a small pear tree I took down a few years ago. ([EDIT] It’s elm burl!) I cut off another hunk of it this spring and re-sawed it into 3 mini slabs with my band saw. Then I ran them through my thickness planer to get them to a uniform approximate 3/8 inch. The length is about 17 inches, but I’ll need to remove about 2 inches from each end because of the planer snipe. I want to make something from this wood. The question is ...

Gamble House Rocking Chair #1: From Rough Wood to Looking Like a Rocker

06-03-2015 06:15 PM by Matthew Morris | 2 comments »

For years I’ve wanted to build the Gamble House Living Room’s Rocking Chair. I was lucky enough to be able to visit the Gamble House and get an up-close-and-personal view of the rocker as part of my research. Since the beginning of this year I’ve been working on the sketchup plans and testing out various templates to see if the shapes I’ve come up with are in proportion and true to the original chair. I start this project in mid May and created a Playlist of all ...

Tool Restores #2: Sharing One of My Tool Cleaning Hacks

06-07-2015 11:21 PM by TrBlu | 4 comments »

It is no secret, I like old tools. Like many of you, I find tools in yard sales and thrift store with marks and decals that just don’t belong. A few years ago, an antique dealer told me about something he used to remove permanent marker and decal residue from most metals and enameled surfaces. It safely removes the ink or glue residue without damaging enameled surfaces. I have used it to remove unwanted permanent marker inks, label adhesives and even latex/acrylic paint splatters....
