American Hanging Cupboard #2: Stock Preparation - Rough Dimensioning

10-29-2009 07:18 PM by Mark D. | 3 comments »

So unfortunately I got carried away actually working rather than documenting the process, but I did snap this photo before I quit for the night. So far I’ve gotten all the face frame pieces cut down to final size and have marked out the tenons on the rails. I also cut a test mortise in some scrap that went through the same milling process so I can test the fit of the tenons as I cut them. The dado stack is in the saw ready to rock. I will begin cutting the joinery tonight(I ho...

Workity, health, and wood

10-19-2009 08:54 PM by Lisa Chan | 2 comments »

Just taking a small break from the work day. Today, I am researching the shape and form of Russian Spindles. I made a cursory spindle last night. I had never spun with a supported spindle that didn’t have a hook at the top. It was frustrating and my spindle didn’t seem to get much twist going… then I realized that perhaps it had something to do with the shape itself. Looked into it and discovered I left quite a bit of extra wood on that thing. Examining the spindles...

turnings #2: turnings - some failures as prelude to some successes

07-28-2009 12:26 PM by Gary Fixler | 4 comments »

Earlier this week I ended up with some scrap baltic birch ply, and cut it into squares with the band saw. I sanded the faces a bit and glued them all together overnight with Titebond III and a Bessey K-Body clamp: A little turning later: And I was starting to get a wine glass shape: That’s probably where I should have stopped. I knew that going thin-stem with the plywood in this orientation was asking for trouble, but I just kept going anyway, mad with power: ...

Tree IDs #4: Silver Birch (Betula pendula)

02-26-2009 05:01 AM by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

I believe this will be the last of the trees I post in this ongoing series that I’ve already identified. I think it’ll be more fun for me and anyone else following along to go on the hunt for a tree’s name and species along with me than for me to simply post an encyclopedic entry of each tree. I didn’t take proper pics of the 2 or 3 others I’ve identified either, so they’re not worth posting yet anyway. I do intend to follow up identifications with more abo...

Hand Tools Cabinet #1: It all begins with a box

02-06-2009 11:12 PM by PurpLev | 7 comments »

I saw this design in a finewoodworking article, and really liked the design, and functionality of the piece, and decided to follow along. I did not use FWW plans, but created my own to fit my space, and needs, while keeping the general design, and concept of the FWW piece in mind. (I made mine, smaller, and shallower then FWW cabinet, also the interior is much different). This is basically a fingerjointed box that the doors are cut off from (to match grain) and hinged on a piano hinge. pre...

Bench #1: Bench for Christmas Gift

12-29-2008 06:46 PM by clasher | 0 comments »

Here are some shots of the imitation Pottery Barn bench I constructed for my wife for Christmas. I wasn’t satisfied with the finish so I still have some work to do. Luckily my wife is looking forward to helping me (re)finish it. I think I want to add some faux wear to this front corner before I re-stain.

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #30: Out in The Woods

09-14-2008 05:51 PM by frank | 6 comments »

Out in The Woods So for this short story, lets set the milieu a bit, turn up some volume and think a bit about what it means to be ‘out in the woods’.... ”Can’t tell the bad from the good, I’m out in the wood then I’m lost in the wood…. Can’t tell the bad from the good,I’m out in the woods then I’m lost in the woods” —by Leon Russell ——————————̵...
