Hydraulic Crane (Toys and Joys) #5: Kerf making

08-16-2015 02:50 PM by Dutchy | 4 comments »

In the doors there are small 1/16” kerfs added . To achieve this I considered to make the door in layers but eventually I bought a Pheil cutting knife from 1/32” (1 mm) and curved it into the wood. Maybe 1/16 would have be a better width. Please let me know. There are also 1/16” (2mm) cutting knives. Benefit of this knives is that the knive widht almost automatic will be the kerf width. You may not believe me but in real it looks better than on the picture. ...

Building an Aircraft #1: Plans and Pieces

08-13-2015 01:14 AM by jase | 2 comments »

Hi all, I’ve recently started wood carving and had some questions on how I did it. I work on F-16’s and my woodworking mentor and friend finally showed me how he makes them so I thought I’d help explain it. This principle works the same for any plane, and I’ve also made a Huey Helicopter for my dad, and my co-worker has made a UAV. Step 1: Find some FREE plans online. I went to google and typed “F-16 schematic” and selected the largest dimension phot...

I guess introductions are in order...

I recently discovered the Lumberjocks Forum and signed up but then spent the last couple of weeks going through all the previous entries to see just what the forum was all about… Wow! There is a considerable amount of talent floating around this place and a whole lot of good (free) information being shared. I hope that I can give back as much as I expect to be getting from all of you!Last summer I was attending a local Farmer’s Market, selling my wood products and making new frien...

building a bench and stuff #5: The home stretch

06-12-2015 05:25 AM by TheFridge | 2 comments »

Warning: pic heavy Just posting a bunch of progress. Leg vise continued. Cutting the bridal joint. Lignum vitae pin for the guide. This stuff strong. Trying to incorporate this as a pin holder but haven’t come across an idea that I can pull off with what I have on hand. So it’s on the back burner for now. Hammered a poplar dowel and drilled a center so I could bore it with a forstner. Didn’t work out so well. Stuck a roll pin...

Gamble House Rocking Chair #1: From Rough Wood to Looking Like a Rocker

06-03-2015 06:15 PM by Matthew Morris | 2 comments »

For years I’ve wanted to build the Gamble House Living Room’s Rocking Chair. I was lucky enough to be able to visit the Gamble House and get an up-close-and-personal view of the rocker as part of my research. Since the beginning of this year I’ve been working on the sketchup plans and testing out various templates to see if the shapes I’ve come up with are in proportion and true to the original chair. I start this project in mid May and created a Playlist of all ...

Here’s the link to the “youtube video”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGo0_-mM1ZQ It’s the first video I’ve ever posted, in fact, the first to ever leave my recording device.
