Just for Fun... #99: Might I Miter?

11-29-2017 01:02 AM by littlecope | 10 comments »

So there we were, walking through Sears, looking for some clothing…As is usual with a Sears visit, I ended up wandering to the tool department; specifically, their Miter Saw line up…From small to large, it’s always been fun for me to imagine getting one of those, and to imagine making Mitered box corners…Debbie came up behind me and asked if I liked any of them, and then further fueled the desire for one by asking if I needed one, adding that “Christmas is coming...

ATTN OKLAHOMA WOODWORKERS!!

05-10-2017 02:49 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...

Its all about growth and i have a dream of making this my way of living and you wouldn’t know how much it would help m...

Exposed Finger Joint Box #3: The Lid

02-22-2017 08:28 PM by splintergroup | 9 comments »

The lid is the most “visible” part of these boxes. I’ve been making mitered frames with panel centers. Some times a mirror on the inside, other times I use veneer. Options would be to make a panel similar to the base or choose another arrangement that draws the eye. For this box, I chose a veneered panel with a mitered frame. As with the base, the dimensions of the inside of the top frame are identical to the dimensions of the box body interior (6” x 8R...

Lidded Boxes #15: Beall Buffing System for Finish Wax Coat

12-20-2016 08:16 PM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

My experience prior to this huge project was I had only turned two bowls plus I performed a test to see if I could turn a lidded bowl with a scrap piece of Douglas Fir. Those two bowls I turned was nearly a year ago and after I had taken a Woodcraft lidded box class at my local store. The instruction was great. Getting personal attention let me know how delicate cuts are needed at times. We were given instructions on how to sharpen the turning chisels, but that skill was not acquired until ...

Lidded Boxes #11: Lucky and Unlucky at the Same Moment

12-15-2016 03:28 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

I turned two bowls today. Both were from bubinga blocks. I was working on the third bowl when a catch occurred. That is when I became lucky and unlucky at the very same time. I was turning the inside of the bloodwood bowl. Things were going well, but then all of sudden the bowl became loose in the four jaw chuck. That was caused by a catch. I had sharpened my 1/2” bowl gouge prior to turning and the bowl was secure in the chuck. It is hard to say just what went wrong. Obviously, ...

A little break in the House Renovation Action, so there was an opportunity to Work on something I’ve been building in my head for the last six months or so…I’ve had a designated ‘Work Box’ for a number of years, a box for storing personal things in at Work… My first one, I out-grew, and so I simply grabbed one that was ‘kicking around… This one is the right size for the Job, but has drawbacks… #1) It barely fits through my Locker Door (...

The art of building Wooden boats

03-16-2016 03:14 AM by BigBrownLog | 8 comments »

I’m just getting this blog post started so it already set up, but in the next 6 months I should have everything up and running for me to build wooden boats for people. I’ll be starting out with some strip built kayaks and canoes most likely. In all actuality I have no idea what people are going to want. I plan on just getting the word out and let people come to me so we can sit down and draw up exactly what they want. After I’ve got a good thing going I will start cold moldi...
