Craig's List find - Free Lumber! Pick it up at the curb...

08-24-2012 08:40 PM by HalDougherty | 18 comments »

I found a posting in the ‘Free’ section of Craig’s List for some scrap wood piled up next to the curb. It was on a street just a few streets over from where I live. So… I ran over and this is what I found on the curb… And here’s more of it loaded in my truck… And a closeup of the mesquite… Here’s a closeup of the maple burl I found in the pile… It’s the best Craig’s List score I’ve ever ...

Building my first guitar #1: Finished the body blank, got all the parts.

09-22-2012 03:15 PM by daverose | 2 comments »

Was inspired by the Randall Price series on building a tenor acoustic guitar and figured my wood working skills had reached the point where I could attempt a guitar, albeit an electric one. I’m slightly obsessive about using recycled wood whenever I can and am often going through people’s old furniture where I have salvaged some quite nice wood over the years. This time around a friend was throwing out an old beat up kitchen table while I was helping her move house. It seemed...

Here is a look at some...

Jewelry Cabinet #2: Refined SketchUp model and main body pieces ready for clean up and glue.

05-16-2011 09:47 AM by Devin | 5 comments »

It’s been a busy month in the shop.I finally refined my design to the point where I was happy with it. I’ve added a very gentle curve to the outside of the top piece as well as the two side pieces. For the bottom, I shortened the feet to 3/4” and shortened the lower drawer section 2 1/2” tall I’ve used sliding dovetails for all of the joinery for the main section. They will provide me peace of mind if the piece is hung on the wall. First time with slid...

Explorer guitar #1: A old project revived.

08-12-2010 11:24 PM by Benighted | 3 comments »

Hi and welcome to my explorer guitar blog. This is a project I started 5 or 6 years ago when I found some mahogany in my fathers garage, I built the neck mostly by handtools, finished it with nitrocellulose laquer (which sadly has cracked in some places and is currently being stripped off). The neck is made of mahogany, a fretboard of indian rosewood, and the head veneer is also indian rosewood. The body will be made of mahogany, and the top is figured bubinga. I’ll post mor...

Patchwork Table #2: Afghan Carpet Inspired

07-11-2011 03:37 PM by Elwood89 | 3 comments »

I liked the first patchwork coffee table that I made so much that I’m making another one. With improvements of course. Start with a lot of different exotic woods. Thanks to www.exoticwoodsusa.com I started with 2” thick blocks of wood and resawed them to 1” (so I have enough left over to make another table). Make them look pretty (easy to do with this wood). This table was inspired in part by a carpet that I got in Afghanistan a few years ago… The ta...

Woodworking Contest - Whirligig Wars Winners

07-26-2012 08:41 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 8 comments »

All in all it was a great event with a lot of great entries. I would like to thank all those who participated in the 1st Annual Whirligig Wars Contest. When I presented the idea of holding a whirligig contest to Steve Ramsey (Woodworking For Mere Mortals) he and I agreed it would be a fun summer event. The response was overwhelming with over 6000 video views of the videos relating to the contest and many great comments from woodworkers all over. So it was decided early on that this would be ...
