Wedding Clock #10: Like Frankenstein, It Stands Up

07-05-2011 01:17 AM by kenn | 2 comments »

I am up to the nerve wracking part of this build. I need to put some dados into the sides of the clock, but since both the sides and front/back are angled, the dados need to be angled. I’ve been thinking about how to do this since I started this project. Use a stack dado set and the table saw? Yeah, that would work, but I don’t think the cut will be as precise as I need it to be and the cut would register on the front edge of one side and the back edge of the other side. That...

The Evolution of Design #1: The Making of the Rocker Cradle

06-30-2011 02:41 AM by ScottMorrison | 8 comments »

Soon, I will be releasing a documentary on the evolution, history and the making of a Rocker Cradle. Although I’d love to take credit for the original concept, the idea was actually a bit before my time, circa 1700’s. Hope you enjoy the clip…

My First Bastone Walnut Burl!

06-27-2011 01:30 AM by OregonBurls | 6 comments »

When I was slabbing it you could definately smell the walnut but it was different from the Claro and English. These have great dark black lines that are marbled. Beautiful white sap wood and hart wood. These are pics of some of the slabs. Cutting Wood Is A Blast!!!

Finally got a lathe and bandsaw

06-25-2011 04:43 AM by SSMDad | 3 comments »

After getting over my “must have every tool craze” (and I was lucky in that I could return all the stuff I didn’t need), 2 days ago I got a little RIKON lathe from Woodcraft that seems really nice (though I’m waiting on the chisels to come in) and today after first talking to the guy on Wednesday, I was able to get a perfectly working and little used Craftsman 12” Bandsaw for $75. It’s exactly what I needed to finish things and now I can use it to rough sha...

Rogue Fine Living #3: Bed of Power

12-22-2011 10:56 AM by Rogue | 0 comments »

In this world of 4gs, Ipads, and Jpegs, we have more power than ever before. Never has it been so easy for an artist to share their work regardless of distance. I can contact a customer hundereds or even thousands of mile away. We can design an original piece via email, and I can have it delivered to their door without the client having to leave the comfort of their home. Wow! Sure beats the heck out to the old days. In Renaissance times, if the King of France wanted you to carve a sculpture...

Building Baby Stokes' 3-in-1 Crib #8: Making the Stepped Pattern

06-14-2011 04:30 AM by Will Stokes | 2 comments »

Once the mortises were complete, it was time to finally move on to the stepped pattern. I first roughed out the pattern at the band saw so as to remove the majority of the waste. After the problems I ran into while building a pair of cradles I now know I need to get to within 1/16” of the line I’ll eventually template route to. I’m currently borrowing my neighbors bench-top bandsaw which has a slightly dull blade and doesn’t always cut perfectly straight so I...

Wedding Clock #8: Tapers & Out of the Shop

05-28-2011 02:34 AM by kenn | 3 comments »

This feels like real progress! By the end of this blog, you’ll be able to see that this clock is actually coming together. When I stopped last time, I was waiting for the BLO to dry on the front frame. It dried. Now I need to apply shellac. I decided on clear to let the cherry darken and age on it own. Maybe on their 50th wedding anniversary the couple will pull out some old pictures and see how the tone has mellowed, just like them. Here’s a shot of the shellac being appli...
