The Knights

02-01-2015 07:51 PM by JWags | 0 comments »

After taking a brief break to begin building a sewing center for my wife, I finally had time to get back to the chess set that I’m making. There is a 30 minute video on my channel that does the detail for those interested. But I also did a 4 minute version – the link is here: http://youtu.be/mDWNgDEaaXw Hope you enjoy! This is great fun!

the broken carpenter #3: Big Progress

03-01-2015 03:41 AM by SquintyPolock | 0 comments »

The Broken Carpenter. Funny to think, I felt quite broken when I came up with that blog title. It’s been a year since; and I feel very much changed. Last year, my family and I moved to a new house, mostly we moved due to family issues, and mostly we wanted to move. But, a little bit, neither my wife nor I really wanted to move. When we finally left, it hurt. There is still bad family blood to this day. And I say to everyone out there that love is grand!! Anyways… We landed in t...

This is Jalen’s interview on The Highland Woodworker. His interview starts at the 19:20 mark. I need to make one disclaimer. Jalen was not on the cover of Fine Woodworking. That image was a gift they made for him as a souvenir when we toured their office last summer. You can see more about his projects here.

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

09-11-2013 03:57 PM 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...

The receptacle it’s plugged into is controlled by a switch also under the end of the bench. The other receptacle is unswitched for plugging the other equipment in when needed. The outl...

How to make hand made curved surfaces look good in a chair bottom

02-10-2014 01:41 PM by Nels | 10 comments »

When I started out working with wood, it was a chore to find any information. I went to used book stores and bought anything that might help and asked any woodworkers I knew. Then Fine Woodworking came along and now the internet. Lumberjocks is the best help I’ve found. There are always several guys who have gone through the same problem.Now, I’m working on 15 chairs. There have been three difficult parts. The curved back, the back legs, and the chair bottom. I’m curre...

Hi, Just read about this mobile woodshop. I think this is a great idea to keep kids engage and keep interest in the trade alive in the younger generation.

Baby Rattles #2: Finished one set, starting some new ones

08-04-2008 07:22 PM by Alan | 1 comment »

Finally finished up the first two: And just in time as it seems our friends are all having babies at once. So I’m trying some others and practicing on the lathe. The two dumbbell shaped ones below are similar to the above two. Still need to be sanded and finished. I read about painting / staining with food coloring so I think I will try that with the lighter one. I also bought some walnut and birch dowels, cut them and hollowed them out with the router. I then filled th...
