tragedies #10: I just planed a board :)

03-23-2010 09:25 PM by Gary Fixler | 5 comments »

It all sounded pretty normal. The first attempt was met with a lot of knocking. Perhaps I had it too low. Hitting stop, raising it, and trying again worked fine, though there were a few slightly raised lines, about 1/4+ wide. I must have chipped the blades slightly. No matter – I can flip them around to the new edges, and I have another pack waiting if I need them. It does look like there’s a slight difference between left and right sides, but I’m talking something like 1...

Mystery tools; non-woodworking

03-23-2010 08:13 PM by YorkshireStewart | 17 comments »

Here’s a couple of pictures of just a few from a box of tools that have just been donated to the museum where I do voluntary work. They’re mostly in cast brass. My thoughts were that they’re for decorative plaster work. Can anyone confirm? Any other ideas?Tiles are 6” to give a guide as to sizes.

POST OFFICE BOXES

03-23-2010 05:19 PM by vlohndorf | 0 comments »

Hello….... I have two old p.o. box doors late 1800’s with beveled glass and combination. I’m looking for a craftsman to build a cabinet for each. I’m looking for the wood and style to be indicative of the time period. I would like more of a long security drawer style. Please contact me @ 603-418-4329 Thank You Victor

A day with David Ellsworth

03-23-2010 03:45 PM by Jon Spelbring | 2 comments »

After a busy weekend at Frank Klausz’s class, I headed out to Woodcraft yesterday for a day long workshop with David Ellsworth. Very cool. David is an excellent teacher. Knowlegeable (duh!), and very laid back. There were 10 in the class (I think). After doing a demo of making a natural edge bowl, we jumped in and started turning whatever it was that we wanted to work on. Some did natural edge bowls, some cut edge, and some hollow forms. I stuck to cut edge bowl – wound up ...

Building a mahogany jewelry box with Frank Klausz

03-23-2010 03:26 PM by Jon Spelbring | 3 comments »

Wow, what a weekend! I spent last Saturday and Sunday learing from Frank Klausz. It was just a 2 day class, but I think we managed to pack a lot into it. Frank is one funny, funny guy! So, here’s my impressions of the class – plus and minus, and a recap of what I learned (at least I think I learned). Overall, the class was excellent. We had 15 students, with varying skill levels. The first part of day one was some background on Frank, and some good tech info on wood, wo...

Reclaimed barnwood .

03-23-2010 03:13 PM by john | 21 comments »

In the last few months i have been watching my barn wood pile slowly fading away . It may have something to due the fact that i built close to 50 birdhouses in the last year . Well a few days ago i was out for a drive and i stumbled onto this old barn that was falling down .It is located about 5 miles out of town from where i live . I went and talk to the owner and he mentioned that it was great timing because he planned on taking the barn down this coming May . I told the farmer who i was...

tragedies #9: I got the new bearing in place!

03-23-2010 03:11 PM by Gary Fixler | 3 comments »

I lamented last week that I just missed the closing time at the local bearing shop. I got there yesterday nice and early and they not only had the right bearings, but bearings with the exact same set of numbers stamped on the side. That gave me some confidence, even though the race covers looked a bit different. The man told me they were from their higher quality line of bearings, and here’s hoping. They were $10/ea., whereas Sears’ version were $4/ea., but I was happy to just get...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #23: Making a Template.

03-23-2010 11:59 AM by degoose | 9 comments »

The Torque Workcentre can also be used as an over head pin router.To accomplish this you will need a template… basically a board with a groove cut in the shape of the item you want to copy.. so that the groove will move over a pin in the table and the router above will cut the shape below.. Very simple but care must be taken…Here is how to make a template…Next up will be using the template to make a cheese board... in Camphor Laurel of course..I will also be making a templat...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #69: My Zone of Wood Art

03-23-2010 08:35 AM by frank | 8 comments »

My Zone of Wood Art ….art is the interpretation of what is before you, and therefore needs no-out-side influence to make it more then it is in this moment. The problem that many have with art is that it is all-ways regulated to some other plane of our existence, out-side the time-work of where we are now. Because the many see art as so ‘other’, these many lost souls to the world of art, will in-deed all-ways be seeking for art as if it is some-thing that is found in the so ...
