questions from a beginner

291 days ago by samdavis224 | 0 comments »

Hi all! I am a young 16 year old guy that is starting to be interested in wood turning and also antler turning. currently i have shaped multiple antlers into different knives, but am looking for a good protective coating. I do not want to be able to use it as an everyday knife, but a ceremonial knife. I want to be able to have it be sharp but don’t want to harm the bone itself. Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Arts and Crafts Wedge and Strap Bed #10: Stain, Lacquer, Hardware, and Lighting

311 days ago by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

I stained and sprayed lacquer, and let the finish cure for 48 hours. Next I waxed the bed with Howard’s Walnut Wax and #0000 steel wool. Then I turned my attention to mounting the drawer pulls. I use Scott Collins “no math” method for laying out the hole locations. Then I offset the holes 3/16” higher than the layout mark, because the threads on the pulls are off-center. I use a full-size jig to mount the four pulls. -----Drawer pulls installed.-----I installed a...

READY TO START MY WORSE CHALLENGE #1: DRAGONFLY

321 days ago by Jim Earl | 7 comments »

Ok Here goes. I have put this off for about two weeks. It has taken me about 9 hours to get it to this point. People thinks that the woodburning they done in high schools is same as what I do. After selecting the picture there is hours pending trying to get the picture just right to transfer everything over to the piece of wood. after you put it on the wood I spend a lot of time going over and over to get the right depth. so with out further ado I give you the DAGON FLY. (OK I AM GOING...

Arts and Crafts Wedge and Strap Bed #9: Dovetail Drawers

324 days ago by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

Time to build drawers for the bed.-----I am using a P.C. jig to machine the dovetails. Everything is pretty standard, except the bit I use, which is a larger 14 degree dovetail bit from Rockler. I like to set up two routers – one with a 1/4” straight bit, and one with the dovetail bit. -----I start by hogging out waste with the straight bit. -----The second pass is with the 14 degree dovetail bit. -----I find this two-pass method makes cleaner cuts, with less chance of the wo...

Arts and Crafts Wedge and Strap Bed #8: The Wedge and Strap Inlay

326 days ago by pintodeluxe | 3 comments »

Here is the bed project, which is nearing completion.-----A couple of headboard details remain, one of which is the wedge and strap detail. I tapered the backsplash, and glued the wedges on. Next I use carpet tape to attach the backsplash to a strip of plywood. This serves as a reference edge as I cut the dado for the walnut inlay. -----I use a dado set and miter gauge to cut the shallow dado. I make sure to cut both ends of the backsplash before adjusting the fence. Normally one would ...

Arts and Crafts Wedge and Strap Bed #7: Platform Support Boxes

327 days ago by pintodeluxe | 1 comment »

The platform support features ten plywood panels that transfer the load straight to the floor. One corner is knocked off, so it won’t be visible under the arched sides of the bed. -----My wife and I worked on assembly of the carcase. We started by gluing and screwing five panels to the side rail. The top of the panels are flush with the groove in the side rails.A lower strip of plywood is then set into notches in the panels. -----Then another strip fills the top notch in the panels...
