Getting ready for shows

02-21-2015 04:43 AM by robert triplett | 9 comments »

We had some new friends over to see our house and some of my work. My wife plays music with them and the guy makes mandolins. They wanted to see what i am making. So I took the opportunity to start getting my act together for the first show of the year- next month. I am building new shelves out of Black Oak. The original fir was pretty ratty- think duck tape in places. I put my new boxes out and set up my cutting board rack. Here are some photos.Thanks for looking. Robert !h...

Hand Plane restoration

08-28-2014 07:53 AM by skidooraceing | 3 comments »

I do not get on here very often but when I do I really enjoy reading and seeing what everyone else does with hand planes and wood working. I wanted to post some pictures of my first ever hand plane restoration. My first was plane was not one with very much value so if I messed up it would not be a big deal. I had bought about ten rusty planes at an auction for like $40 dollars so that I could fix them up and use them. One of the planes was a Trustworthy and believe its a no. 4 (Stanley ...

Haunted Forest TWO start to finish ... artwork to ebay ... stoneware tile frieze from wood to stone

10-12-2007 06:54 AM by Dan'um Style | 9 comments »

Inspired by Mark’s blog on his Sandzen inpired wood carving … thought might try one myself. The idea for Haunted Forest TWO. Photo I digitally edited on my laptop. Layered a couple photos, grayscaled , rescaled, stretched, deformed, negative and pixelated …. This is a challenge to myself. I have never made a carving this big, nor will I use the exact same methods that I have used in-the-past. Hope to learn a few new tools and teach myself a few new tricks via ...

Murphy Bed Side Cabinets #6: Construction Delay - Shop Upgrade and Outside activities.

06-07-2009 07:06 PM by Gene47 | 3 comments »

It has been a few days since I have been able to work on the cabinets. I did some shopping for drawer material and in the process found some wood that will look like mahogany when stained and did not cost an arm and a leg. I am going to use it for the upper face frame as well as the false fronts for the drawers. Since I am an ex-truck driver and live in a rural area I have a friend that farms and about this time of year I help out hauling his grain to the elevator so that has started and I...

Extremely Average #242: My First Commission

09-04-2010 04:49 AM by Ecocandle | 10 comments »

Hello All, Yesterday I was asked to build a tiny box. This is fortunate, because I only know how to do one thing…build tiny boxes. The request, from a reader, was to build a box similar to my first successful tiny walnut box. It is interesting to note that the entire conversation took place on Twitter. He asked me if I planned to build any more like the first one, because it was his favorite. I said I would build him one, and the deal was done. I have been having trouble slee...
