My carving adventure begins!

12-21-2012 02:51 AM by RaggedKerf | 3 comments »

My lovely bride got me a book and two chip carving knives for my birthday on Tuesday. I have to say, I’m pretty darn excited. She got me Wayne Barton’s Complete Guide to Chip Carving have read it cover to cover already and today made my first cuts! First up, I found a piece of basswood I bought at Michael’s for another project and never used. Perfect. It’s only 3” x 3/8” x 24” so not exactly an ideal size, but I figured for the first go, why no...

Trays #1: Titanic Serving Trays Launch

03-24-2014 05:36 AM by robscastle | 4 comments »

I wanted to make some Serving Trays featuring the RMS Titanic.So after doing some research I found all sorts of interesting facts, amongst them was a story regarding a body being found on the ocean floor.Being a bit on the macabre side I decided to try and find out if it was a hoax or the likes. Sure enough a pair of boots and a coat were found together indicating the last resting place of one of the passengers, I didn’t think much more about it and began the preparation of my trays....

Madrone Burl Pen

02-20-2008 12:51 AM by itsme_timd | 9 comments »

I don’t want to post 100 entries on my projects page for pens but wanted to share this one, I think it came out great. I’ve always tried to have some type of artistic outlet and never had any skills. Drawing, painting, music – no luck at all. I tried trombone in 6th Grade and the band director actually asked me to move the slide but not actually play… true story. :-) I’ve received a lot of compliments on the pens and I’m getting better – this on...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #4: Half way done :-(

01-22-2011 09:02 PM by Mark Shymanski | 5 comments »

Hello, posting this a bit late because I had to go to Winnipeg early on Thursday so had to get up early which meant I had to hit the hay as soon as I got home :-( It was a great course we essentially just worked on the nail tray project, laying out the cutlist on the wood, then dimensioning the wood. Really just learning how to interpret the drawings and instructions. There was one huge, significant and really cooolll thing Ryan introduced to us…THE ROUTER PLANE!!!! This is such...

Haiti #2: We are back from Haiti

01-28-2010 03:48 AM by cmckerliesr | 4 comments »

Well, my wife and I have made it back. Actually we returned yesterday. Now is decompression time. I just thought I should let you all know that we made it back safe and sound, especially after all the great messages. Plus I will take a moment to answer a question that was posted about how to get involved in Search and Rescue. Before I go into that part, though I must tell you the what one of the truly difficult parts of search and rescue are. I will never forget my first search, which was ...

Hand Planes #4: My newest sweety

09-13-2008 06:19 AM by dsb1829 | 8 comments »

Once I started using scrapers I was caught with the bug. They are just so handy, but the drawback to card scrapers is that they can and do catch the second your focus wanders. So I started looking around for the typical scraper, the no.80. I had been watching e-bay for a few days when this 80M shows up. Hmmm, what’s that? Off to Blood & Gore for a quick ID. Apparently it is the ductile iron version of the scraper. Well, that could come in handy. The japaning looked good, b...

Ponderings #4: Getting Antsy!

01-14-2008 09:24 PM by Tomcat1066 | 12 comments »

So, yesterday found me in both Lowe’s and Home Depot. I finally found Home Depot’s selection of non-construction wood. I also found Lowe’s oak and birch plywood. Why was I wandering through these sections? Because I’m getting pretty damn impatient!!!! I don’t have a shop to use, but I’m antsy! I want to build something now! A tool chest, or something small and easy to move. I almost bought a Workmate yesterday just to have something to work with. ...

Maybe wood can be a healer?

03-08-2010 10:28 PM by mhein68 | 7 comments »

Me and my dad have butted heads more times then I can count.. We.. uhmm.. He is just that way! Of course my wife say’s we are just alike that’s why we can’t get along sometimes.. I wont’ accept that reason….. well….(Please don’t tell her she’s right!). As I posted in my newbie post my great grandfather Peter Heinen was a woodworker by trade in the small town of Evansville, IL. He lived a very full life living to over 100yrs old! I have been s...

Tablesaw up and running!

03-01-2010 04:22 AM by mike85215 | 5 comments »

I spent the weekend disassembling, and cleaning the unisaw that I bought last week. Most everything went well, at least until I went to replace the blade sawdust shield under the table. I kept all the parts neatly in piles together with their respective pieces. But when it came to the sawdust shield I had a major brain fart….I spent over four hours trying to figure out what I had done wrong…even looked at the parts list several times before I realized that I had the spacer on the ...
