Entryway Arts & Crafts Mirror & Storage Bench #5: Corbels, Arc, Mortises & First Dry Fit

11-27-2012 02:37 AM by Steve Erwin | 3 comments »

Using my Sketchup model as a reference I drew the shape of the corbels onto the prepared stock, and cut it out roughly on the bandsaw. Then with sandpaper and a card scraper I smoothed them out to their final shape. I forgot to take a photo of the setup for drawing the arc, but basically I bowed a piece of plywood to the correct vertical distance at the center point of the arc and traced the curve with a pencil. Cut it out roughly on the bandsaw, and smoothed it out with sandpaper. Th...

Making a Folding/Pocket Knife #3: Scales and lots of shaping

03-24-2013 02:43 AM by bobasaurus | 2 comments »

Still working on this thing: Hand planing a bocote knife scale flat on one face and one edge. I’m going to resaw one scale into two on the bandsaw, and this needs two flats square to each other for good results. Resawing the single bocote scale into two thin bookmatched scales on my bandsaw. Bookmatching the grain looks pretty nice. Gluing a brass liner to one of the scales. I used the super glue with curing spray trick again… it has been working great so far. I cut...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1005: Time to Finish Some Things Up

04-09-2013 11:16 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

My goals for today are to really make a lot of progress on the new designs. It is funny how I can work so much in between designing, and still feel sometimes that I am slacking or not doing enough. As I look at my pile of eight projects that I was going full steam on last week, even though Keith and I produced 160 kits in a couple of days, I feel like I have been neglecting things. Now that those kits are out the door, all that remains is the box of partially finished projects that I nee...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1018: Always Thinking Ahead

04-23-2013 11:38 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

Well, it seems that my feeling of catching up with things was a bit short-lived. Here we are getting ready to wind down the month of April already and once again I am wondering where the time is going. By the end of next week, one third of 2013 will be done. It seems almost unfathomable that we can already be this far into the new year. Weren’t we celebrating New Year’s Day only a couple of weeks ago? I know that may not seem like my usual optimism by outer appearances, but...

Gun Stock Progress

05-11-2013 02:13 AM by Nugs | 1 comment »

Decided one day I wanted to carve my own gunstock, for the old Cooey single shot .22 my Dad gave me. I bought a big chunk of walnut and cut out an outline I traced from the old stock. I measured out the seating for the barrel and action and carved it out using chisels and gouges. Most of shaping was done with a chisel, spokeshave and a rasp. I started some rough sanding at 40 grit, but still a long way to go.

Tool Restores #3: Toolbox Restore

05-27-2013 12:26 PM by TrBlu | 4 comments »

My tool picking has been rather slow and uneventful for a while. About a month ago, I ran up on this tool box for $3 at a yard sale. Cramer Products, Inc. is a 90+ year-old Sports Medicine equpiment company. I am guessing the toolbox originally belonged to one of their service people. The toolbox had been sitting in a barn for years, in about two inches of water part of that time. The first thing, I washed the toolbox with a grease cutting car wash and dried completely. ...

Shop Times #3: Super simple Bathroom Vanity

06-17-2013 08:19 PM by Brohymn62 | 0 comments »

So a couple of months ago is started this project. It ended up in the corner of my shop as time did not allow me to move forward with it. I saw it yesterday and decided to get it moving again. I just needed something really simple for my bathroom. So here is the progress I’ve made. I used some old scraps of plywood, poplar and pine to put it together using pocket screws. I had some mouldings sitting around that i use on the top. It’s only got primer on it now so I still have so...
