Here’s how to make a Laminated block for my Turned S&P Mills, Ice Cream Scoop & wine bottle stopper 1= Cut lamination strips “Any Thickness you want, see diagram” by the width and length you need to make the size block you need for your project. Example 1/8”x2”x12” ,1/4”x2”x12” and so on!(It Does take some thought how you want to organize the laminates as the outer laminates will be glued together & the th...

Greene and Greene / Craftsman Barstools – Part DueAt this point I have all the parts cut out and am pattern routing the back legs. Unfortunately, I have no formal training and have to re-invent the wheel with every step. I cut a blank for the back legs on the band saw staying ~ 1/16” outside my line. I built a jig to pattern it with a lower bearing bit. Route one side – then switch to the other side, ala Taige Freid style – I kept having problems with the second cut being shy of th...
Greene and Greene Accents on a Craftsman Style Barstool – a batch of 8 So begins my blog on these G~n~G barstools. I spent about 8 months (part time) working on these–from design to done – and would hate to guess the actual time per stool. I had a lot of learning curves with new techniques. The places I tried to incorporate the Greene and Greene accents; fading indent, bull-nosed feet, stepped footrest, the pillowed plugs and the scalloped crest rail forming a tsuba. It’s har...
I had some unexpected success fixing a screwup when making quadrilinear legs for my Harvey Ellis Bed project. The 1st 4 legs that I made got ruined for a couple of different reasons. On my second attempt, the joints didn’t close all the way on one of the legs. I really didn’t want to start a 9th leg attempt, so I tried to fix it. I set the tablesaw to 45 degrees and ran an 8th inch dado down the joints, and stuck some scraps in the dados. If I knew how good this would ...
We order a few redwood slabs off of ebay, We were supprised when they came they were quite large, one was 44” wide and 84” long and the other was 27” wide and 72” long. They were cut in a way that most edges were a natural live edge, Which gave them a nice free form look, Redwood was a lot softer than i had thought it wood be but nice to work with.We decide to create a redwood coffee table out of the first piece. I have a friend that has a 36” planer wit...
Thanks to all who responded. Just in case you’re interested, my business plan is beginning to take shape. I have a web site up and running now (WAYNEWERKS.COM). I have displayed several of my products there, but haven’t done any pricing yet. I’ve also set up an account on ETSY.COM, but haven’t much luck there yet. I’m sure I’ll need to add more products in order to reach a larger demographic and increase the likelyhood of making sales. I’ve also set u...
I’ve been toying with the idea of starting my own woodworking business for literally decades. Now, at age 61 I think I finally have the nerve to do it. I don’t have any illusions about what I’m about to do. I don’t want to go “big time”. I just want to sell some of my work and (probably) use the money I make to buy more woodworking toys. I don’t really want to do much on a large scale. Little things like jewelry boxes, keychain bobs, hand carvings and...
