Mandolin build #3: Prep work, carving profile

10-18-2015 08:46 PM by BJODay | 8 comments »

There are different ways to carve the front, (sound board), and the back of the mandolin. Some shape the outside first. Others start with the inner surface. You can use chisels, gouges and finger planes, or side grinders and sanders. I’m going to work the outer surface first. I’m going to try using a sanding wheel on my drill press. Before starting, I need a guide to know when I have the shape close. The plans have profiles printed on them. I cut the profile out, glued it to so...

Collapsible Castles, my first

01-29-2011 12:47 AM by MasterSergeant | 3 comments »

Being new to the “blogging” stuff here I go. Let me start out by saying I am new to woodworking and my goal is to learn how to 1. use my used/new woodworking equipment safely and efficiently and 2. learn how to cut/carve/sculpture wood into beautify/functional items. I want to be able to complete the interior trim work on the house my wife and I just built. I wanted to learn how to use my new Jet 18” band-saw first and foremost. I just completed a pretty neat little ...

Gun Stock Carving # 3 #1: A daisy BB gun stock

01-11-2012 06:35 AM by Jimthecarver | 8 comments »

My father-n-law sent me his BB gun stock for practice. Although the wood in these stocks are very soft it had its challenges nevertheless.After scribing the design on the stock I began to carve inside the banner area to relieve it so the banner looks correct and raised.After that i began on the banner itself, relieving the outter edge and making the folds more apparentThen I started stippling the area that was relieved inside the banner. Finally it was time to start on the gator and releave ...

Hand Tool Journey #15: Shop Made Dovetail Layout Compass.. Part 3

05-10-2013 09:52 PM by Airframer | 8 comments »

I’m pretty excited right now. I just finished attaching the legs to the hinge and so far nothing has fallen apart! From what I can tell the hardest part is behind me and now it is just a matter of shaping and fitting the adjuster arc to the legs. I also got the fine tuning nut built up and tapped. I still need to make an adjusting screw for the arc but that won’t take very long. Today at the OB appointment we were told that we will be induced on the 20th so only a week ...

While watching a video series about China Hand Tool Wood working, saw a plane the fellow was making. “Should only take ten minutes or so to make, very simple..” Yeah, RIGHT. Took me about six HOURS! Anyway, I got out a piece of white oak stock, and tried out some cuts Ok, THAT didn’t go so well. That dummy can saw worth a … Front of the opening was way too big. Plan B. Had a second piece of white oak. Saw guy was a little bit better. Used ...

and then it becomes....... #9: interior arch and columns

01-10-2009 08:47 PM by kolwdwrkr | 8 comments »

Well here I am again. Joy to the world. LOL. I am working on the interior of the box and here is where it stands. The parts you see in the pictures are NOT attached in any fashion, in fact I have a piece of scrap pine holding up the back of the shelf that sits on the arch. There will be additions added that will hold this up, but ssshhhhh it’s a secret! I turned the columns out of wenge to match the handle and the base. Instead of turning a piece and then cutting it in half I took...
