From Junk to Dust Part 5! (after 1184 days)

12-29-2010 05:09 AM by Dust4brains | 1 comment »

Well, it’s only taken 1184 days to finally get back to my dream of making a woodshop in my garage. Now I know some of you may think this is a little excessive but I guess other family/work priorites made me take my time. OK, excuses over with; I’ve decided to take steps NOW! I need to clear out the junk from my side of the garage and will be dedicating this to woodworking only!!! I’ll be posting photo’s over the next few weeks on the progress so stay tuned…....

Extremely Average #312: Another Chapter

12-29-2010 05:09 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

Hello All, I didn’t post last night, because I wrote a ‘I have a terrible cold’ adeled post about a goat. It was not at all about woodworking or Henry Wood, so I posted it and went to bed. Today, I had hoped to do some woodworking, but I was still recovering. It was an off day from work, so I did bang out another 1100 words of Henry Wood. I hope you enjoy. http://extremelyaverage.com/2010/12/henry-wood-time-and-again-ch-33-back-at-the-office/ Brian

Project Instructions #1: Jewelry Dishes - Instructions for a Great Gift Item

12-29-2010 03:26 AM by Peter Oxley | 2 comments »

I made several of these for Christmas gifts this year. They aren’t difficult, and they seemed to be well received. They use a fairly small amount of material, so they may be the perfect project for that pretty little chunk of wood you just can’t throw away. Start with ¾” material. The blank for the dish is about 3” diameter, and the post is ¾” wide by about 3-4” long. Put the post blank on the lathe and use a roughing gouge to turn it round. Now...

Pizza Paddle FInish

12-29-2010 02:38 AM by WoodArtbyJR | 5 comments »

My daughter received a pizza paddle for Christmas (not from me). She went online to see how to season it and found suggestions to use tung oil. She called me to question this. She said that the article also stated that it would take about two weeks to get it finally seasoned using tung oil. It also stated the hardening tung oil would also help the pizza slide off the paddle easier. Not having a clue I told her I would submit this the you all (THE EXPERTS IN ALL THINGS WOOD). OK, here...

Trying My Hand At Inside Out Turning

12-29-2010 02:20 AM by OttoH | 0 comments »

Well I have had my lathe for 39 days now and am continuing to experiment with it. I decided to do an inside out turning yesterday and since this is an experiment not a project, I decided to do a short blog on it. For those of you nor familiar with inside out turning you quarter a block lengthwise and put it together so all of the outside corners are now the inside corners that touch each other. I used double-sided tape to do this and then wrapped the ends with a heavy-duty tape. I then mo...

Donna's DragonFly Harp Project

12-29-2010 02:18 AM by Donna Menke | 13 comments »

Hi Guys-I’m starting to make another harp and I thought some of you would be interested in seeing how it goes- as it goes.Why am I designing my own harp? I wanted to see if I could modify the Limerickplans I used for the Rainbow harp I made in 2007. I wanted the soundbox smaller,and I wanted it to be self-supporting and as tall as the Heartland DreamWeaverthat I have and like. I took aspects of lots of different harps and put them alltogether and this is what I came up with. I also want...

Grandchildren's Christmas 2010 #5: Bjorn's Master Control

12-28-2010 09:12 PM by Lee Barker | 7 comments »

He’s the only boy in this tribe’s generation, and boy howdy does he like guy stuff. Trucks, construction equipment, and being around his dad’s job, which is operations manager of a resort water park. Big valves and gauges and switches! The only money expended on these five projects was $5.00 at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore to score some switches and knobs and stuff. That made up about 1/3 of the dashboard; the rest was just around the shop in boxes and drawers. ...
