This very large, commissioned credenza was designed as an entertainment center to sit below a big, wall mounted, plasma TV. It is 76” wide 24-1/2” deep, and 34” tall.

Large Carved Frame #1: Background

367 days ago by Rex B | 1 comment »

This project is a few months old, but I’m just now getting around to writing this blog. I came up with a novel method of carving intricate shapes with a router, and I thought it was worth sharing. I’m probably not the first to come up with this technique, but I came up with it on my own without really seeing it anywhere else. The background: My wife wanted to make a large chalkboard to hang in our dining area, so I cut a large piece of cheap hardboard (30” square) and we ...

Redwood Table #2: Staining

563 days ago by WoodenSoldier | 2 comments »

After some advice from other wise lumberjocks I decided to flatten the top by sanding it with my belt sander instead of trying to pull it flat with angle iron. It still has a very slight sag in the middle but it’s hardly noticeable and won’t affect the function of the table. I doubt the customer will ever notice unless they pour a glass of water into the middle of the table to see which direction it goes. I sanded it to 220 and then went back and filled a couple small bubbles...

Checkerboard Project #5: Custom Carved Checkers Completed!

625 days ago by Retsof | 3 comments »

After several hours of carving with my Dremel tool over the last two days, I completed the custom checkers for this project. This was my first attempt at wood carving and with 48 sides to carve, it was a bit tedious, but not too difficult. My skills improved a good deal by day two and I took some extra time to go back over the first day’s checkers and make sure they were all pretty consistent. I took some video of the carving process to post as a separate blog entry once I have...

Progression Photos on the "The Greatest Story Ever Told" Walking Cane Project

2240 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 12 comments »

Realizing that the story and photos of this walking cane project are decidedly Christian in content, if you are offended by such things, you should read another Blog. This project is a cane that I was commissioned to build, which tells the story of the Old Testament, the New Testament, and will be used to talk about the customer’s faith as he uses the symbols to tell the story. I hope that if you are offended by the content, that you will at least enjoy the woodworking process that is...
