Large bench made from the tree that stood in the grounds.

08-07-2009 07:20 PM by mreagleeyes | 18 comments »

I am working on yet another piece and thought I’d share me project so far with you guys. The Magnolia ‘Salicifolia’ tree had stood in the grounds of the Inner Temple on London’s Thames for over 80 years but due to a fungus it had to come down. My original plan was to use the timber as a practice piece that I could use my new Arbortech grinder on, however whilst the guys where cutting the tree down the girl in charge of the gardens asked what I would do with the t...

I'm gonna be a Star!! #4: the panels

08-06-2009 06:56 AM by kolwdwrkr | 14 comments »

I finally found some time to make a little progress on my star door. I did a bit more chip carving on the star itself and had the frame pieces cut. Tonight I made the panels around the star. I decide to plane up some redwood for contrast, and made them 1/2” thick. This makes them sit down in the frame and gives the star more depth. Instead of routing a full raised panel on them I opted for a rabbet and a cove. I used a core box bit to make the cove. So the star has a large cove a...

So I decided to make something...

Sketchup Models of Shop Furniture for a Small Shop #3: Bench Top Carving Bench

07-29-2009 03:10 PM by Jack Barnhill | 9 comments »

Edited 8/21/09: A couple of years ago I took an intro class on wood carving. The school had on hand some carving benches for the students to use but, naturally, I had to make my own design. Below is the design that I came up with. It was small enough for me to lug to class and large enough to handle most of the carving projects that I anticipate doing. It also allowed me the flexibility to accommodate various sizes of work and be able to reposition them without unscrewing and re-screwing...

I'm gonna be a Star!! #3: Chip carving #1

07-23-2009 06:09 AM by kolwdwrkr | 11 comments »

So the chip carving has begun. I thought I would share a little bit of how to with you. I don’t have my entire pattern figured out, but I did choose this pattern for each of the points. So lets get started. You can purchase chip carving knives if you feel it is necessary, but I just use an old timer I’ve had since High School. It has 2 blades. The smaller blade is just fine for this type of work as long as you have it sharpened. Trace your pattern onto your piece by usi...

"Art Box" Tutorial #10: Pin Hinges

07-22-2009 03:56 PM by Andy | 17 comments »

Updated 1/16/12 I spent a lot of time developing a way to let the lid swing down into the box, yet still maintaining a fairly tight reveal on all four sidesThe difficulty is the lip itself. It doesnt allow the back of the lid to drop into the box, so thats where we need to cut it away a little deeper at the back. I call these pockets.The other difficulty is in getting the hinge placement spot on or it wont open at all or not far enough to stay open. Here is how its done: Use the same pa...

I'm gonna be a Star!! #2: Mucho progress!!

07-20-2009 05:06 AM by kolwdwrkr | 14 comments »

I wasn’t supposed to work on this today because I’m supposed to work on a fence for the property I’m renting. I have a huge pile of fence material that the landlord and I just picked up yesterday. But I started this project this morning, blogged it around lunch time thinking I was done for the day, and then ended up back out there. This project has actually been kinda fun. It’s been fast, but fun. Total to this point is around 5 hours. The only thing left is the ...

shotgun #4: The result

07-19-2009 02:10 AM by kolwdwrkr | 4 comments »

I finally am at the end of this project. It took quite a bit longer then my initial thoughts, which was to just throw something together and call it a day. LOL. So a 5 hour project turned into 15 and I have to say that I’m glad that I took the leap. This gun turned into a cool little project and it requires a lot of different techniques. This gun was made out of 4/4 solid beech. I got to do the things I love. Turning, shaping, carving, and finishing. I had to do the cut out with a...

"Art Box" Tutorial #9: It all hinges on this.

07-17-2009 03:53 PM by Andy | 8 comments »

Updated 1/16/12 This is where you need to decide how you want to open your box. I mentioned at the outset about some of the different boxes I have made and how they hinge differently from one another. All are good, but you may have a preference in style or it may be your ability that decides for you. The pin hinge is what we will mainly be focusing on and was used on this box. Chapter 10 will discuss this style. The Deco box uses a standard brass butt hinge with a stop stra...
