Let's Turn Salt and Pepper Mills

08-07-2010 06:05 PM by Bob Simmons | 14 comments »

There is something special about wood turning. It is easy to spend hours at this wood craft while working with the various woodturning tools. This particular project features salt and pepper mills of black walnut with a food-safe finish of Tried and True oil varnish. This finish leaves a soft and warm patina with a nice hand rubbed look and feel. The material on hand in the shop happened to be 3/4” black walnut that was left over from another project. In this case the (4) pieces w...

How to Create Dentil Mouldings on the Dado Sled

08-20-2010 08:46 PM by Bob Simmons | 11 comments »

The same holds true for furniture. Visit a museum that features fine woodworking from the past few hundred years and you are sure to find a furniture piece with a cornice that includes dentil moulding. So, if you were building f...

Ripping Thin Strips of Wood Inlay on the Band Saw

12-09-2010 08:41 PM by Bob Simmons | 5 comments »

“Do something wonderful, people may imitate it.” Albert Schweitzer… (1875-1965) Humanitarian, Theologian, Missionary, Medical Doctor One of the challenges in making bandings of wood inlay is maximizing the material. We certainly do not want to cut the banding too thick or too thin as either would be wasteful of our decorative inlay that we took the time to make. We also want to be able to cut the wood inlay to a uniform thickness. Cutting bandings to an equal thickness ...

Picture frame profiles

04-13-2011 05:53 AM by devann | 5 comments »

I was checking out some picture frames that spunwood has on the site and ask to see some profiles. My request was granted so now it’s my turn. I went out to the shop and took these pictures. Hope that this helps those of us that don’t have molding cutters see another way to do it. This one is weathered cedar and a piece of redwood cut with a cove bit on the routertable and a piece of longleaf pine with a rabbet cut making the inside of the frame.
