At the Lathe #1: Urchin Shell Ornaments

12-12-2011 07:32 AM by Brian Havens | 10 comments »

I found figuring out how to make these ornaments quite a fun challenge. (I already posted this video in my projects, but apparently that does not get it onto the LumberJocks Video Page) http://lumberjocks.com/projects/57125#comment-1116565

Done: Three Handsaw Refurbs

02-13-2012 04:06 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 69 comments »

There are so many outstanding saw restorations on LumberJocks, I hesitate to post my first attempt. But I have a cheap saw that has the potential to be a good user, so here goes. =========== Edit #3 ===============Now a third saw, a D-8 thumbhole variety…. See blog entries in posts below.================================= ========== Edit #2 =================Okay, here’s another saw for my own type of refurb. First I drilled a ‘new’ blade to match up with a ...

Sargent No.79 Moving Filletster Shape Up! #2: Apple Handle

12-23-2013 11:37 PM by Thimgren | 5 comments »

I replaced the old screws that holds the iron and ship-breaker with some of brass. Flattened their heads and gave them a nice chamfered ring. A wile ago i got some pieces of Norwegian west coast grown apple from a friend. Having saved it to make a new handle and knob to a jackplane I restored this summer (another project soon to come) and decided to match up the filletster. It has an beautiful warm glow to it and I think it would ad both warmth and enjoyment to the touch and feel to th...

Wooden Apple

03-24-2012 02:54 PM by Brett | 3 comments »

This project is easy and very satisfying for some reason. It is an apple turned on the lathe. This particular one is turned out of some cherry and the stem is ebony. Why would anyone want an apple made from wood? Well, reasons will vary but I think that the majority will think that it is unique and just looks cool. It’s an original gift idea, at least. I hope that you enjoy the video and get to make yourself or a loved one an apple!

30 projects in 30 days #17: Make art everyday

07-06-2010 01:52 AM by scottb | 4 comments »

or at least try to. In the past I’ve taken a couple of stabs at turning out 30 projects in 30 days. My first attempt was the most ambitious, trying to churn out, not only a project a day for 30 days, but to make them also be a sellable one every day. In the end I created more than 30, and spent about as much time on the photographing and blogging as I did the actual work. Quite the busy month – perfect cover for my wife to catch me off guard with a surprise birthday party ̵...

Bread Board (s) #2: Milling Woes

11-22-2010 05:27 AM by PurpLev | 5 comments »

I found time to get some shop time, and wanted to get back on track and get this project going (hard to do after a long pause). last time around I was milling the lumber, when my planer broke down on me in the middle. I have then milled some boards with hand planes, and fixed my planer, but at this point, I was a bit confused what was milled already, what thicknesses, and how much material do I have (more of a do I have enough? curiosity). I still had to mill the apple lumber and add it as...

Lumber #4: Urban Logging Starts Here

09-23-2010 05:35 AM by PurpLev | 16 comments »

OK, it didn’t really start HERE, but way back about the time I signed up for lumberjocks when I got these applewood logs. I already mentioned it in a previous post, but for those that did not read it here it is again (if you’ve read it you can skip to step 3) The Applewood Logs Story2007, I was just getting into woodworking, had a circular saw, drill, and a router. my wife saw an add on craigslist giving away applewood. I went to see the guy, a nice older woodworker that was mo...

Help with wood identification

08-26-2011 06:31 PM by Brian Havens | 4 comments »

I got another score, some really beautiful stuff with a lot of spalting in some pieces. The only problem is that it was brought to me without any leave samples, so I am uncertain of the species. Perhaps my pals here at LumberJocks have some clues. I got two pieces. One looks like it is near the bottom of the trunk, and the other is a crotch piece. I can also add that this tree is (was) in Northern California, in an suburban area, so it is not limited to native species. A view that ...

Digital Decision Epilog

05-09-2011 06:49 AM by wichle | 2 comments »

Well it’s been just over 60 days since I bought the apple. I can say that the experience has been a good one. So is the Apple better than the Windows machine? Fact is that I still have the Dell M90 sitting here and have used it as well as the Apple. Each has a place. Like comparing your table saw and your miter saw. Each has features that may be useful at one time or another. The Apple software is mostly compatible with the Windows software. Only problem I found is that Power Po...

Making a Wooden Pendant #1: My wood pendant process

08-15-2011 09:30 PM by S2artDesigns | 4 comments »

I figured I would put this out there in case anyone was interested to know what I do to make these wooden pendants. Its not complicated. Anyone can do it with their scraps. I personally like to use burl wood but if you have less figured wood you can pair it up with contrasting colors and shapes for a nice effect. ANYWAY, Picture time.I skipped the wood selection process in the photos. I was making this one for a friend and she picked the piece, marked the spot she wanted and then I took over...
