This unique woodworking project is part of the Let’s Build Series. For this intriguing, woodworking video tutorial we are once again in the woodworking shop creating a custom wood turning, a fruit bowl for the breakfast room table. The wood we are using is light walnut for the 12 staves, dark walnut for the 12 vertical spacers, and ribboned mahogany for the base. The challenge we face is gluing all 24 segments at one time. For this project we need to be dead-on accurate and focuse...

Seattle Bungalow Fair

1456 days ago by Crushgroovin | 2 comments »

I just signed up to volunteer at the Seattle Bungalow Fair later this month. I have never been to the fair but it looks great. Has anyone been or planning to go? How is the overall atmosphere? Is it a worthwhile “fair” to attend for a recent Greene & Greene/Arts & Crafts fanatic? Love to meet up with some other LJ’s who will be in attendance. -Chris May Your Cuts be Tear Out Free!!!

SPIRAL DESIGN #2: The construction...Selection of wood

1460 days ago by BertFlores58 | 9 comments »

It took me a different trial of wood samples. Since the plan is to have it done in endgrain, I have to select the wood that will not break at thickness of 7 mm or nearly 3/16 inch. I used my own strength for testing it. I have found several strong wood mostly 2/3. Cut them into desired pieces and looks like this. Another difficulty is select proper combinations of color depending on the design. I need some contrast to emphasize the design. I have to test the pieces by spraying wa...

1462 days ago by Bob Simmons | 5 comments »

As featured in the Let’s Build series... Many of woodworkers receive woodworking magazine subscriptions in the mail each month and as the time goes by these magazines accumulate. These magazines are a great source for reference and also inspiration so it is nice to have them protected and organized so that we can easily access the information. Now, a woodworker can simply purchase a magazine case from the publisher or from a local discount store and be done with it. However, since...

1463 days ago by Bob Kollman | 10 comments »

Three weeks ago I started building a bed for my son the all star werestler. About once every 2 years for the past 6 years, John and his freind Desmond will manage to kill a matress-box spring- and frame. I will not picture the carniage…I figured to build one they can’t break (easily anyway), thinking it wasn’t that much wood (wrong), and it would only take 2 weekends (wrong). Their are 2 stars to this project the first being my mortise jig. The jig is a simpl...
