The Masters of Woodturning.

01-02-2013 06:21 PM by PASs | 1 comment »

I somehow stumbled across this interesting article.Woodturnings By The Masters For Sake Of ComparisonIt certainly made me feel better as I’m always my own worst critic.I hope you enjoy this perspective as well. Which reminds me of the first coin holder I ever sold.I considered it my worst piece, it was some junky dunnage I’d thrown together on an experimental whim.There was even obvious glue smear available.It sold within a couple of hours.Go figure.

Pochade Box in progress #1: Pochade box

11-17-2013 09:37 AM by Jon1094 | 3 comments »

Several people have inquired about the Pochade box I am building for my wife. A Pochade box is a painter’s box that can be transported out into the field. Varying in size, shape and style they can contain any, all or none of the following: paints, pallets, brushes, solvents, canvases, etc. What a Pochade box really does well though is holds a canvas while one is in the field painting. Mine is made of walnut sides with a bookmatched maple top. The base, sub-base and drawers are ma...

The Friendly Expat

Yesterday I got of a cruise ship at Port Douglas in tropical North Eastern Australia.At a market was a very friendly expat from Texas. He had to be friendly because he is a woodie & a fine one at that.This guy makes fine sculptured furniture and was selling it at the local Sunday market.I got talking to him about the different species of wood in the North and found out a lot of his furniture was made from ‘Mango Wood’, you know that great fruit that is grown in the tropics.Any...

Arts and Crafts 6 Drawer Dresser #6: Web Frames

01-02-2013 08:53 PM by pintodeluxe | 1 comment »

It is now time to build the web frames that function as drawer dividers. The web frames are notched around the legs, and I decided to cut the notches with a dado blade. Here is my setup at the tablesaw with sacrificial fences on both the tablesaw and miter gauge. The result was nice crisp corners on the notches. This will be a visible joint at the front of the dresser. A bandsaw could also accomplish the task, but not quite as easily as a dado blade. After cutting pieces to ...

New to the hobby, a look inside the beginners mind. #1: the first few tools in the shop

01-05-2008 11:58 PM by Jason Wheeler | 6 comments »

I have to say setting up a wood shop is just as much work and cash, if not more, then setting up a steel shop. Luckily a few of the steel tools are useful and will come in handy to the wood shop. I have also a few tools from a set of cedar drafting drawers I built oh, 5 years back. It was a one time thing and at the time living in an apartment, dust was every where. All I really had was a Dewalt biscuit joiner and a random orbital sander, that was it. A pic of the cedar drawers, mmmm they ...

Building an Arts and Crafts Writing Desk

12-20-2011 04:11 AM by dskill | 0 comments »

Several years ago I ran across an old book of Arts and Crafts style plans and copied the pages of the book containing the drawing (yes, just one drawing!) with dimensions and three paragraphs of instruction on how to build the desk. This past summer I finally purchased the rough quartersawn white oak and dimensioned it for the pieces of the project. One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned (belatedly) from starting this project is that apparently even the casual hobbyist woodworker of ...

Squirrel Whirler #2: The Whirler!!!

07-17-2008 04:55 AM by steveosshop | 6 comments »

Here is part 2! Unfortunately, I started working and didn’t really break until I was done. Actually it only took about an hour, so I just forgot to take pics in the middle, but here is the final product(excuse the mess on the workbench); And this is what it will look like in the tree. All that is left is a couple coats of outdoor finish and a piece of corn to screw onto the end and its ready to whirl some squirrels!! Thanx for looking and let me know what ya think!

Blogging instead of Woodworking #8: What a Waste

08-15-2014 12:49 PM by Douglas | 0 comments »

Over on my blog, I’ve been catching up on some of the things I’ve been doing for the last several months. One is a set of wastepaper baskets, a few different designs, I made from cutoffs & scraps. I dip my toe into the “what to do with scraps” debate, and a few other things. Enjoy… http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2014/8/12/what-a-waste
