I’m reposting this for all your benifit, if there are any problems with seeing the pictures please let me know so I can fix it. This should pretty well explain and show you how to make one of the cups below, with the exception of doing the hand carving or any lathe work. All that is necessary to make these is a table saw, sandpaper, chisel, and a hammer. Oh, and wood, you always need wood. I offered a couple weeks ago to try to do a tutorial on how to make a coffee cup like this. ...
Found a set of plans at Rockler for a three piece Arts & Crafts living room table set. Bought the materials for the coffee table – around $200. Bought enough materials for the coffee table to start. My 16 year old son did the mortise/tenons and all the cuts. We did staining together. Want to put on a mosaic tile top. We prefer staining prior to assembly.
I’ve been desperate for anywhere to find wood, or Holz. I try and find simple wood and I can’t find any! I’m getting desperate! This is how low I’ve sunk. I currently was in the PX looking for some things for the kitchen, and I found aromatic cedar hangs. In my desperation, like Gollum, I snatched several up and clutched them to my chest as though someone was going to steal them from me. I feel like an addict, trying to find a fix.. HELP ME GET MY FIX!!! :D
I offered a couple weeks ago to try to do a tutorial on how to make a coffee cup like this. The above is teak, it’s composed of 15 separate pieces. You build it like you would a barrel, just smaller. So, to start you need to find something that will work well as an interior sleeve, I’m partial to stainless so I keep my eyes peeled for any candidates when I’m out and about. I’ve found these work wonderfully and are cheap. Here is one out of the box. The real...
I’m just wondering what to do with this Myrtle wood burl that I picked up last month while travelling through Reedsport, Oregon while on vacation. It’s only a small burl measuring 15” wide by 12” high. I gave it a nice smooth sanding today in preparation of creating a project with it, but haven’t decided what yet. That’s why I’m putting out ‘feelers’ here if any of you have any ideas of what I could create with it. I’m not in...
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...
I’ve made a little more progress on the snowman (he’s a filler project for when I only have 20 or 30 minutes to work in the shop). His nose is a piece of a dowel that sharpened pencil sharpener and then I carved it down a bit more with a utility knife and then sanded it a bit (not TOO much, its a carrot after all). His 3 button’s are all pieces from the same dowel. I need to apply a little wood filler in one or two places, sand that smooth, then put on the f...

Some pics from my trip to the Stickley Museum in Syracuse, NY.
So I have been Scrolling for about a year now and, I think, getting better at it all the time. First of all reading and watching all the tutorials I can find. Thanks a lot to Shelia Landry and Steve Good for their part in that. Then lots of practice – LOTS. As all of this comes to play, learning how to get the blade to go where I want it to, how to select the correct blade for the project, how to select the correct wood and then how to finish it to show off the work. It seems like an...
