Just for Fun... #79: Milling around...

10-08-2013 02:17 PM by littlecope | 16 comments »

I spent this Sunday just milling around in the shop, finally facing up to the rest of the slab of Bubinga that was bought last February…The slab was about 14” wide to begin with… I had begun by slicing it roughly in half to make it more manageable and also to gather some experience with the new Band Saw and Planer; Experience, that was sorely needed!When all was said and done, there was quite a little pile of “mistake” wood… Of course I’ll find use...

I have over the past few weeks been able to start taking some overstock merchandise, merchandise that the customer either forgot about or didn’ t have the funds to pay after the customer used the companies sharpening service. Some of the blades, router bits and some shaper bits , I will be keeping for my self but, to be albe to buy more I have to sale items I don’t normally use or if there is way more of an item or group of items than I can use myself. This is one of those time. ...

Rustic Furniture #1: Four Yrs in The Making

08-22-2013 07:20 AM by Izzy Swan | 6 comments »

I have spent the better part of my life building what I would call rustic furniture, I love the experience of going out into the woods and find some unique natural branch, bark or burl and incorporating it into a design.. Doing this thing on YouTube where I have been sharing ideas and jigs that I build to (I hope) inspire people to thinking out side of the realm of traditional craftsmanship and maybe try something new.. any way the link below is to a slide show of a few off the pieces I have ...

Southwest Cocktail table #7: Table Built - on to the the finish ........ line.

08-11-2013 01:47 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 15 comments »

Had a bit more time this morning and late afternoon. I finished up building the legs then got them attached. Lot’s of cleanup work is required but the rest of my time will be spent making it just so. I decided to make the inside legs into triangles. It’s a lot less work, and as I understand it, sturdier. I go a little cleanup done of the top. I’m chomping at the bit to do some more work. Id be surprised if I could get her ready for finish in ano...

Southwest Cocktail table #5: More of the table top.

07-31-2013 10:12 PM by MarkTheFiddler | 9 comments »

Howdy, I finally found a bit of time to work on the table yesterday and Sunday. I built the underside of the top from larger pieces of cabinet grade plywood (That’s what I had). Then I added an extra layer to the bottom of that. I didn’t have any plywood that was large enough for the entire top so I overlapped the second layer. I made a style modification to the top to take care of the gigantic empty spots in the corners. Although you can’t see the final top design ...

Build a Steam Box

07-27-2013 11:41 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 8 comments »

Recently I purchased a Steam Bending Kit from Rockler Woodworking and Hardware so I could try out some Steam Bending. Bending wood is something I have never tried before and is out of my comfort zone. I wanted to dive into this area of woodworking and challenge myself as well as learn something new. So of the various forms of wood bending (Laminated Bending, Milled Bending, Steam Bending) I chose steam bending to be my first attempt. The kit I purchased included the reservoir, hose, and so...

This modular bookshelf is a great project for beginning woodworkers and you veteran woodworkers as well. Requiring only 2 boards to build and a limited amount of tools, this project can be made in a day or a weekend. the design can be modified by building more cubes or changing the orientation of the unit itself. Add some color and it makes a great display and shelving unit for a kids room. Give it a try.

Southwest Cocktail table #2: Simplify ..... sort of....

06-19-2013 04:41 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

My first take was too busy, muddy and lacked contrast. I decided to take what was working and go from there. I definately wanted to keep the Navajo mountain pattern in the Bubinga. Here is where the project is at the moment because – that’s all I have. ;) I’m not going to use Oak. All of the lighter colored wood will be cherry. I’ll be adding a paduak border a bit later. I may be addidng in some peruvian Walnut (Never heard of such a thing until today. Nex...
