Wood Turning / Wood Carving Exhibit at the Smithsonian (Renwick Gallery)

12-31-2010 04:25 PM by Scott R. Turner | 2 comments »

The family popped into DC yesterday at my request to visit the exhibit of the Bresler Collection of wood turning and carving. It was not a huge exhibit—about 50 pieces—but each of them was unique and in general the level of craftsmanship was awe-inspiring. The exhibit link has nice shots of all the pieces, but here’s a few of my favorite pieces as shot on my cell phone—I forgot to bring the real camera. I hope that titillates your interest! If you&#...

Donna's DragonFly Harp Project

12-29-2010 02:18 AM by Donna Menke | 13 comments »

Hi Guys-I’m starting to make another harp and I thought some of you would be interested in seeing how it goes- as it goes.Why am I designing my own harp? I wanted to see if I could modify the Limerickplans I used for the Rainbow harp I made in 2007. I wanted the soundbox smaller,and I wanted it to be self-supporting and as tall as the Heartland DreamWeaverthat I have and like. I took aspects of lots of different harps and put them alltogether and this is what I came up with. I also want...

Dust Extraction #1: Rectangular Ducting Will it work

12-20-2010 04:34 PM by Jamie Speirs | 7 comments »

I’m now looking at putting in ducting for my new shop. I know it is a bit early considering I may only get occupation by the 1st April 2011.I’m hoping to have the DC and power points fitted prior to moving in the machines.I’ve found a great 10” x 2” plastic section. It also comes in 4” x 2” To me this seems better than using round:It is easy to make junctionsInspection traps would be easierIt takes up very little space So my question to the know...

Wheelchair Woodworking #8: My Right Hand Man Gordon

12-02-2010 12:58 PM by Jamie Speirs | 7 comments »

Gordon is my right hand man, I thought that I would tell you a bit about how he has changed my life.Gordon and I were introduced to each other by his brother in law fifteen years ago. I was in hospital with his BIL and he thought that we would get on. Gordon is also disabled and has many similar interests. We both like Counrty & western music along with the 60’s & 70’s music we grew up with. We both went gun slinging, It is the UK so we fire blanks. Will we ever grow up? I hope not.Go...

5,000 year old door : Exciting new findings

11-22-2010 09:54 PM by Roger Clark aka Rex | 16 comments »

Archeologists have uncovered more artifacts after excavating around the door and under the door. After carefully cleaning the front of the door a carved sign was found. The significance of these markings is not generally understood, but some believe it represents the number 6. More interesting items were found under the door, which would have been the inside. This could have been some sort of tool, or maybe a wedge to keep the door open in a required opening. Seeing how old this...

Making a Violin #4: Cutting the 4mm edge to size

11-22-2010 07:26 AM by RonPeters | 3 comments »

The wood shaped to the line. If you check back a few posts there were two lines. My ‘final’ line is what you see remaining. Here’s a jig I made to cut the edges to size. Does anyone see what ‘the problem’ is in this picture? Think hard… It’s a 1hp Craftsman router with a 3/8” straight bit. I call it a ‘face off’ bit, but I could be wrong? The jig part is the device holding the router steady. It’s 1/8” alu...
