Making a wooden cup, part 1

08-23-2011 04:38 PM by Ghrrum | 11 comments »

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...

Myrtle Wood Burl #1: What To Do?

08-17-2011 04:21 AM by Trev_Batstone | 4 comments »

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...

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...

It's Beginning to look at lot like Christmas #3: Buttons, Nose and some paint

08-15-2011 09:02 PM by Kerry Drake | 0 comments »

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...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #11: ScrollSaw Business - Making Money That Is

08-08-2011 10:39 PM by jerrells | 2 comments »

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...

Evolution of my router planer #7: Version 1.2c (had to tweak it again)

08-08-2011 06:52 PM by TZH | 5 comments »

Found out the trex clamps I talked about in my last version (http://lumberjocks.com/TZH/blog/24588) weren’t strong enough to withstand the pressure exerted by the bolt going through, plus didn’t hold the sled rigidly enough (too much diagonal movement). So, back to the drawing board. Figured a clamp should function like a clamp no matter what the design is, so I used 2×4’s for the stationary clamp (first photo) and 2×2’s (oak – second photo) for the mov...

Thor's Hammer Pendant

08-07-2011 04:41 AM by S2artDesigns | 2 comments »

I have wanted a thor’s hammer pendant for a while now. I am pretty big on jewelry first of all. I just like it. Watches, leather bracelets, my own necklaces, etc. And I always kind of thought that thor’s hammer pendants looked kinda cool. That and they symbolize strength and courage blah blah I just thought they looked good. So I figure I want it to last and I buy a sterling silver one. Problem is that it’s the size of my stupid THUMBNAIL. I tend to like my pendants a little...

Greene & Greene Inspired Crib #1: Exciting News and a Crib Design!

08-07-2011 02:37 AM by Alan S | 3 comments »

What do you think would happen if a Lumberjock and his wife found out they were expecting a day after returning from their trip to Pasadena, CA where they toured the Gamble House? Of course, a Greene and Greene inspired crib design would shortly follow! This is the third blog I have started having not finished the first two, but this project will absolutely be done by February. How could I live with having to buy a mass produced crib for our new baby? I studied the regulations for cri...
