Intarsia Basics #2: Preparing Your Wood and Pattern for Cutting

04-11-2012 01:20 AM by KoryK | 18 comments »

Intro: Hello to all and welcome to the first installment of Intarsia Basics. Before we can start cutting we need to select the wood we want to use and get our pattern ready. Wood Choices: I prefer to start with stock that is one inch thick because that gives you a lot of depth that you can work with. It will require a little more sanding on some areas but it will help to give your piece a 3D look. It is your choice if you prefer to stain your wood to achieve the colors or use exot...

I'm still here

04-06-2012 01:25 AM by T. D. Reid | 3 comments »

I haven’t fallen of the face of the earth but I am behind on the Queen Size bed build. It has become a money pit because of a 5/8” mortising bit that I didn’t own. Then I realized that the throat on the mortising machine is on 6” and the bottom rail is 8” so I ordered a 5/8” mortising chisel. While waiting for it to get here I dry fit the head board and low and behold a queen size bed is more than 6’ wide and by the way that was the longest length of pipe clamp that I owned. So then I shell o...

New Idea! Band Saw Mug

04-04-2012 10:42 PM by woodshaver Tony C | 21 comments »

I was on luv2learn blog and after seeing his great mug’s I thought Why not use the Band Saw Box technique to make a Mug! Lu2lean ask me if I had the time to give it a try so I made one today. I took a bunch of pictures and put it to video. I used some Cedar for the mug and Cherry for the handle. Just some scraps I had laying around. I got the handel pattern from Steve Good Thanks Steve and luv2lean! I think it came out well!

Rockwell/Delta Homecraft 10" Bandsaw Restoration #1: The Beginning

03-27-2012 12:00 PM by Tyrone D | 12 comments »

Hello,I found the best find ever in my life. I found a Delta Homecraft 10” Bandsaw in an alleyway cast away near a “free” sign. I thought to myself, “That bandsaw deserves better and I took it home.There she is in her miskept beauty. On of the things that really pecks my brain is the stand. It says, “Property of CC Wakefield & Co. Ltd.” on it. Charles Cheers Wakefield is the founder of C.C.Wakefield & Co(Now known as Castrol). What’s weird is ...

Split Roubo Workbench #2: Rough Dimensioning

03-21-2012 02:48 AM by lysdexic | 13 comments »

I spent the weekend cutting the lumber into bite size peices. I found this somewhat challenging because this is where I picked the boards and assigned their fate. ”You will be this and you will be that. No, wait, you are not wide enough. Go back into that stack. Now I need another one these but that means I will have to cut you in half…. Am I sure? ” I need the boards for the top to be ~ 5” wide. I will preserve length and thickness for now. Still in order to rip...

Prayer Kneeler #1: Starting to take shape

03-20-2012 05:17 PM by Trabiman | 2 comments »

A friend of mine, who took a day from work and drove 6hrs round trip, ran a new 100 AMP panel from the house to my woodshop. When I tried to give him money, he refused and asked only that I make him something. I said sure thing… He asked me to build a prayer kneeler for his house. He only had one requirement, which was that it be made out of scrap that I had on hand in the shop. After looking at many sites and other postings of those who make kneelers I have finally have a start.

03-18-2012 10:53 PM by KoryK | 41 comments »

Hello to all and all are Welcome, Intro: Hi, my name is Kory Kiker and a couple of weeks ago Ms. Debbie contacted me about conducting an online class for those interested in learning the art of intarsia. I was very excited about the chance to share a few things I have learned in the last three years of doing intarsia art. Before intarsia I did a lot of wood carving so I hope this helps give each project more depth and definition. I will tell you now that most of the things I’ve lear...

Model Bell 407 helicopter project #5: Cutting the body open.

03-16-2012 02:57 AM by Ryan Haasen | 4 comments »

So fo the past while I have been sanding the body to shape. I was also doing anything I could to avoid facing the challenge of cutting the body apart. I was afraid of doing so because it is not a cheap chunk of wood, and also all the effort put into getting the shape correct shape made it more special. Then one day I decided it had to be done and I did it. And that new bandsaw got quite the workout. It did go better then I expected with the minor flaw here and there. after the walls were ...
