Heavily modified Paul Sellers workbench #5: Ch Changes, turn and face the VISE

01-24-2014 03:22 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 11 comments »

Soooo, it’s been a while. There’s been a lot going on and I haven’t found a lot of time for woodworking. I’ve worked on a few small things here and there, but nothing major. I’ve recently gotten back into woodcarving and have been enjoying dreaming up projects and learning new techniques. I got out to the shop one day a couple months back and decided I wanted to shorten my bench and put the vise closer to the end. At first I tried to do it with a skill saw...

A Look at a Mini Kanna

05-04-2017 03:19 AM by Lemongrasspicker | 0 comments »

I have very few tools. In keeping with my living space but also in keeping with my belief that skills should surpass the tools that are used. In my mind it makes more sense to be able to make your own tools. So I was attracted to the Japanese thoughts of minimalism in both their tools and their methods. A mini kanna was something I’ve wanted for quite a while. it’s difficult to find one that is high quality new in the US (online or otherwise), but I found a maker (in Japan) tha...

My eBay Addiction...

04-29-2007 06:26 AM by Ethan Sincox | 15 comments »

When I first started getting into woodworking, Pops showed me his two carving mallets. One was made from Osage Orange and one was a heavier, denser, more oily wood. He didn’t know what it was, but he said if I ever came across one to pick it up because they were pretty hard to come by. It didn’t take me much research to figure out Pops had a Lignum Vitae mallet in his possession. So I started looking into finding one. An extensive search found very few places that sold them...

Boat building #1: In need of spiritual applicant with free plans

09-27-2009 06:08 PM by threehands | 2 comments »

Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...

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...

Evolving Band Saw Project #5: More or less finished

09-29-2010 04:31 AM by wyeth | 3 comments »

The reason I started this blog was to show a project that sort of evolved over time – at least a year so far – and illustrates one of the ways I seem to gain enjoyment from messing about in the workshop. I see a lot of small box makers who seem to work this way finding new and unusual ways of creating something from what seem to be left over cutoffs and so on.Anyway I can now show you the finishing touches to this stage of my project – but it is still not finished.It may bec...

Lizard Staff #1: Need advice on finishes.

07-24-2013 05:27 AM by ivan | 5 comments »

I am copying one of M. Pounders projects, his lizard cane. His work is amazing! I am just trying it so don’t laugh too hard as I try to carve and burn this lizard on a 5 foot staff. It is a limb from an orange tree that has aged about a year. it is carving very hard wood and it is very white. It burns OK but not a nice as basswood. My question to all of you is: How do I finish the staff? I want to stain it darker brown and leave the lizard natural or stain it Golden Oak. Has anyone ...
