File to knife... #2: Feeling good about the progress today!

03-26-2015 08:36 PM by MadJester | 12 comments »

Hey there everyone! Well…as I mentioned in the comment section of part one of this series, I took some files to a friends house and we annealed the handle portions, I cut a gigantic farriers rasp in half and annealed the handle portion on one of the pieces. Today I was able to get down into my shop and drill the holes! It was a little slow going with the smaller files, and the cobalt bits were useless…even with the temper gone from the steel. Surprisingly, the larger holes f...

Toilet Paper Holder

01-07-2015 12:53 AM by Dan Lyke | 5 comments »

I have been swamped under by the bathroom remodel that I've been blogging about over at Home Refurbers and at my own site, but I figured I’d toss a little of the in-progress woodworking over here. So here’s the paper holder, we’re still tweaking the finish on this wood (it’s either Ipé or Sapele) to match the other stuff, and trying to make sure we get more of the right other stuff to match the towel bars (which I, apparently, don’t have a good picture ...

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #3: Removing the Bark

07-27-2014 05:35 PM by CharlesA | 2 comments »

I left the bark on the piece for my coffee table, but thought if it ever became a problem, I’d take it off. My understanding is that the bark is safe to keep on if the slab has been kiln dried. Air dried bark will have bugs. Since this is a gift, I’m taking the bark off from the beginning. The bark was pretty stubborn on this piece. i’d heard that some folks find an angle grinder handy to do this. I found it helpful, but not as helpful as a more sophisticated tool I ...

Bench II

05-12-2014 09:15 PM by Jos | 0 comments »

I am building a set of two benches; one for me and, hopefully, a profit bench. The need for the bench is due to a lack of sitting locations to install shoes on my feet. We have a shoeless policy in our home. In one of my earlier project post, I made a simple bench out of treated pine scraps to get an idea of what I was doing before moving on to this build. This project is a skill step up from my previous bench. It has a small bit of shaping added by my 4-1/2” angle grinder usin...

Reclaimed Glory #14: An Ode to Power Carving & Sculpting Reclaimed Furniture

04-17-2014 10:34 PM by palaswood | 1 comment »

I have been dragging home interesting logs I come across in the woods from time to time over this past year, and I have amassed a sizeable little pile (ok not little at all!). Thing is, without a huge bandsaw or a chainsaw mill, processing the wood into lumber is a task hardly worth the enormous effort. I know, I’ve tried. I recently looked into power carving for the first time as a quick and creative way to make use of my …inventory, lets call it.With an investment of onl...

Drift Redwood Bench Build #2: Sanding and hidden rocks

02-02-2014 02:27 AM by scruboak51 | 2 comments »

Well, I broke down and added a new power tool to the arsenal. I picked up a 4.5” angle grinder from the big orange home store. I’ve been wanting one for a couple of years and had hoped to turn one up at the local thrift shops, but no such luck. With an upcoming instillation of hardwood floors and the need to undercut our existing existing cobble stone hearth I figured it was about time to crack open the wallet. While in the spending mood, I also picked up a 60 grit flap disc...
