Small workshop struggles with clutter; taking shortcuts

08-24-2016 04:21 AM by WoodworkinPROGRESS | 1 comment »

The past couple years ive developed a passion for woodworking. its my time where i can get so focused on my projects and completely block out anything the world is throwing at me at any given time. I guess you can say the craft itself is basically my therapist, only if i were to substitute a real therapist id probably save about 10x the money that i do on tools, but they are beginning to get to the point where they are starting to pay themselves off. In my opinion where the true passion for ...

Relief Carving 1st Project: Eagles Head #1: Inspiration

08-12-2016 04:20 PM by edwood1975 | 0 comments »

So I was watching Rough Cut and Tommy Mac was building a blanket chest and it had a beautiful carved pattern on it and that was all the inspiration I need to start on this road. As well my body is feeling old of late and I just want to do something small and craftsy and not be hauling big ass 4×8 plywood sheet all over the place.

Carving a Life Size Statue #3: Large glue up, transfer lines,starting to Carve

07-24-2016 10:32 PM by Dennis Zongker | 25 comments »

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 6 weeks of cutting, gluing, drawing layout lines and carving off the larger sections of wood. One of most important steps is matching up the cups of the wood grain while also matching up the color of the wood and density. Since you don’t have to worry about the wood warping, there is no reason to alter the grain direction from board to board to keep it flat. When gluing up for a large carving it is important to have the “cups&#...

New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #1: rust removal on cast iron top & refurbish action multiple videos

06-28-2016 04:03 AM by MikesProjects | 8 comments »

Video links below… Recently I purchased an older 20” bandsaw. I need a larger bandsaw that can handle anything I throw at it.. I think I found that in a mid 70’s Rockwell 20” wood cutting bandsaw. It probably came out of a school wood shop. The motor is 2hp, it has two speeds which can be adjusted with the belt, it has already been upgraded with carter guides, this big boy saw weighs over 600 lbs. I made several videos regarding this saw which i’ll post below. ...

Past and Present Projects #1: Picture slide show

06-19-2016 10:29 PM by WoodCrafts67 | 2 comments »

Here is a video of my past and present projects. I thought it would be a lot easier to do it this way to show you some of my work. All projects from wood I have used either pallets or recycled wood from old furniture and off cuts I had laying around in the workshop. I really like to make and build many things as you can see. I hope you like what you see. I really enjoyed building everyone of these projects. I am currently working on a Homemade Bandsaw a drill press and a routing machine...

Carving a Life Size Statue #2: Detailing the Clay

06-06-2016 07:57 PM by Dennis Zongker | 19 comments »

After a month of working with clay I have finally got the customers approval of Jesus on the cross. So far it’s been a great experience learning human anatomy and learning so much about our Lord Jesus Christ, the little details and meaning behind each scar and location of the nails, ect. The clay model is at 1/2 scale 36” tall and the wooden Crucifix will be full scale at 6 feet tall. I am really looking forward to gluing and carving. I miss working with wood since I am a wood ...

Knives, making scales, different rivets, handles

05-25-2016 12:33 PM by dbray45 | 17 comments »

One of the things missing on this site is making knife scales. This is not something I normally do but I bought my wife some knives that required scales and during the process, noticed that we had several knives where the handles looked like crap, were cracked, and even broken. Some of them had really good blades and some were junk (these were tossed). During this process, the knives that I bought from Woodcraft have really nice blades but the rivets were less than desirable, sam...
