How to Create Dentil Mouldings on the Dado Sled

1471 days ago by Bob Simmons | 11 comments »

Dentil mouldings are a distinctive member of the classical moulding family. Often you will see a distinguished building and then when you look up to view the architectural moulding of the cornice you will very often see dentils as one of the cornice members. The same holds true for furniture. Visit a museum that features fine woodworking from the past few hundred years and you are sure to find a furniture piece with a cornice that includes dentil moulding. So, if you were building f...

Wood turning tools used for the Salt and Pepper Mills

1480 days ago by Bob Simmons | 1 comment »

This is in response to a viewer, Helluvawreck who had questions concerning what turning tools were used during the video of the Salt and Pepper Mills. Thoughts:1. Turning salt and pepper mills is essentially spindle turning.2. Due to the length of your wood lathe you may need to bore out on your larger lathe, the drill press, or carefully by hand. However, you may be very well able to bore out on your Jet lathe.3. You can start out with this wood project and you will do fine. Suggestion...

Let's Turn Salt and Pepper Mills

1484 days ago by Bob Simmons | 14 comments »

This finish leaves a soft and warm patina with a nice hand rubbed look and feel. The material on hand in the shop happened to be 3/4” black walnut that was left over from another project. In this case the (4) pieces w...

Desk Build #1: Layout & Milling Materials

1486 days ago by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

Plus there will be some edge banding happening too. You will also see how I build my drawer boxes and the material that I use for this in future episodes. Don’t forget to sign up for Huck’s (hucksdi...
