A journey into the workshop. #46: More progress on the kitty grave marker.

02-25-2010 04:02 AM by dbhost | 2 comments »

I tried keeping it as simple as possible, and worked the best I could to make the grain complimentary, and this is what I have been able to come up with. What you see here will NOT be what is all visible above ground. Remember I have dot have something sunk into the concrete footer right? The design is pretty simple. Cross built from double layer cedar 2×4s, 12” wide x 24” tall (above ground). The edges are all relieved with my 1/2” 22.5 degree chamfer bit. I thought...

Humidor, Any suggestions?

02-25-2010 03:09 AM by dakremer | 3 comments »

So here is my humidor for my brother so far. The sides are oak. I made a convex cut in them with a table saw – first time ever doing it. turned out pretty good. The top and bottom are a hard maple. I got them from my neighbor who had some of his maple trees cut down and milled. I planed it down to 3/4 and cut it to size…. I’m wondering what you guys would do with the maple (top an bottom) Should I just chamfer them? Or leave as is? or plane them down thinner??...

Chip carving patterns #3: Grid pattern #1

02-25-2010 02:16 AM by lovestoys | 2 comments »

Found a cool trick to help with the dry air of winter carving. I’ve been placing a piece of dampened paper towel around the wood blank an hour or two before I carve. When I first did it, I just put it on one side, which lead to some weird warping, but when the blank re-dried it was flat again (whew). This pattern relies almost entirely on the basic triangle cuts, so it’s good for practice. I used a simple flower motif in the center, it can be left blank or used for some...

Hi everyone, I’ve been viewing many of the projects here and am litterally awe-stricken at the quality of the workmanship here. I hope to make some contributions in the future of my own that will stand up! A little about me … Not having the tools nor the space in a rental or a condo, I had focused on other things such as cycleing and computer repair. Now, however, I have a modest home to which I am the proud owner of with my wife of 3 years and a baby on the way. What a time...

Glen Guarino,woodworker - NJN/State of the Arts

02-24-2010 11:32 PM by GlenGuarino | 6 comments »

This was a very cool experience for Glen. Usually he is alone in his studio with his tools and wood creating lots and lots of sawdust. On this day the producer and her film crew came to Glen’s studio filmed him working and talking about his work. He has been a teacher for years, but never did anything in front of a camera. The producer was great helping him feel comfortable. Marie
