A Poem writen for me by my Son

04-12-2015 05:23 PM by PersimmonHill | 1 comment »

Atop a little hill in southwestern Kentucky a persimmon falls free from its limb and lands far below upon the tin roof of the Woodworker’s shop. His ears perked up, taking note of the first persimmon he had heard fall this year. Soon they will rain upon the roof each sounding like the strike of the drummer’s snare, they will cover the ground and begin to fill the air with their sweet scent and then the butterflies will come. They will come by the hundreds to light upon the ripenin...

NEW TOOL! sort of

04-09-2015 03:26 PM by Lazy_K | 1 comment »

hi all ; new tool! The Idea for this I have thanks to St Thomas’ Guild (http://thomasguild.blogspot.nl/) I got this idea from their blog a long time ago and I have had this in the back burner of my mind for awhile, and it stayed there until I needed it. So, i’m going to an event called Noisemakers in two weeks and need more tuning pegs. I used to buy good cheep ebony tuners for $0.25 each, now they are $3.60 each.So whittling!whittling tuning pegs is not exactly a “safe...

The Tinker's Apprentice #2: My Dilemma

04-07-2015 08:50 PM by droogs | 1 comment »

Having had my “road to Damascus” moment, the realisation dawned on me that although I had just had a world beating business idea; I in fact had absolutely no way in which to achieve its fruition. After all, here was I with no tools at all, other than a very worn Phillips screwdriver, a decrepit claw hammer, a knock-off 12mm Marples “blue” bevelled chisel (with sides that could only be described as having been ground using the kerb) and a rather cheap and nasty ¼” drive socket set missing the ...

Art Nouveau Coffee Table #5: "Grind & Sand and Grind & Sand"

04-05-2015 10:51 PM by Dennis Zongker | 15 comments »

Removing approximately 200 pounds of solid African Mahogany was pain staking. Setting up a plastic tent and wearing enough face and body gear to cure Ebola. lol When starting out it took four men to move the base and now two men can move this coffee table base. One of the dumb things that I did was take off the guard to one of my grinders so that I could get into the concave section of the lower legs. Then I hit a snag and the grinder pulled me in and grounded up a couple of my fingers, ma...

The Tinker's Apprentice #1: A Beginning

04-03-2015 06:37 PM by droogs | 2 comments »

Where to start? At the beginning I suppose. Well, not the very beginning as that would entail going all the way back to a rather dreary wet Tuesday afternoon (and it was, I’ve checked) in an equally dreary and dank tenement building in Glasgow in 1968. For you dear reader I think perhaps that that may be a little too far and not very interesting and it would also be definitely far off the mark, as far as the subject of this tome to come is concerned, as could be. So, I guess I will begin s...

Art Nouveau Coffee Table #4: Carving with Grinders

03-29-2015 09:33 PM by Dennis Zongker | 17 comments »

Here is a short Video link at Youtube where I’m carving the base with grinders. This is the beginning steps for smoothing and balancing the proportions of the table base. After this step I will start the sanding, I’ve been grinding away for around 80 hours so far. A lot more muscle work that I wasn’t expecting, but than again nothing in woodworking ever goes exactly as planed. lol Thank you for looking! View on YouTube

Rope Carvings

03-24-2015 06:09 PM by Luke Addington | 2 comments »

I prepared some rope samples a few weeks ago for a client meeting. Here’s the process I used: Layout Part I. Video for Part I of the layout process. I mark the centers of the square portions at either end of the turning. I line my ruler up with the two points and bend it down slightly so it touches the column. Then I mark a short center line on the column itself. I do that on all four sides. Then I take some painters tape and line up the centers the same way I did with the ruler, ...

Art Nouveau Coffee Table #3: Gluing Legs & Runners, Then Layout for carving.

03-16-2015 01:46 PM by Dennis Zongker | 18 comments »

This coffee table base system is rather large, the top is elliptical shaped at 60” x 80”. Right now the base weights around 450 pounds, then when done carving should weight about 250 pounds. This Art Nouveau base took me a full ten hour day to draw in my cut lines by scaling off the 1/4” clay model. So now it’s fun time using grinders that have chain saw cutters and King Arthur Holey Galahad coarse grinding discs. I’m setting up a plastic tarp around one of...
