Celtic clock transformation #1: Celtic clock transformation #1:

12-31-2014 11:31 PM by Michael Anthony Zelonis | 4 comments »

Started this project over a year ago. The wood is Ancient kauri, I bought it for it’s neat history knowing nothing of it’s carving characteristics. It was going to be a clock, but during the final part of cutting in the celtic design the side of the block cracked. I was going to toss it, but s friend said to hold on to it and look at it again later. Now it’s later and I have an idea, it’s weird I promise. During this process, the fragility of the wood al...

hand carved redwood bench #4: a smidgen of progress

08-25-2009 06:01 AM by kolwdwrkr | 10 comments »

Well we were able to put about 6 more hours into the bench project this weekend. The display cabinets have been consuming our free time, but I’ve decided to stop working on it at 5 and work from 5 to 8 on the bench. We still need to sand it all, screw it all together and shape the arm rests. It’s just sitting there and the mortises are what’s holding it together. I put the seat slats down onto it so I could test the comfort. I need to shape the front slat and radious al...

Traditional Chinese Jack plane

05-25-2014 10:52 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Start with a chunk of oak. This is Red Oak, I think. and layout a few lines. A 45 degree one for the iron to bad on, and another for the wedge to press against. Layout some other lines. Where the mouth is, and where the “eyes” go. The Eyes are the two points that hold the wedge in place. Ahead of them is the escape,emt area where shavings are supposed to exit. Like this. Then the chopping begins with the idea of making a hole all the way through. Then ...

The old time woodshop journals #19: Rhythms of woodwork

08-02-2012 10:05 PM by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

As I have stated a few times before I have only been at this wood working game for just over 2 years now. A few months into this journey I graduated up to some chisels and mallet simply trying to understand the elementary basics of paring down wood. I believe the first task was a very green horn lap joint followed by smashing a mortice in..lol. Maybe smashing is the only way of the untrained hands as they yearn to make masterpieces, only while seeing them in our dreams until we can put as man...

The Tinker's Apprentice #1: A Beginning

04-03-2015 06:37 PM by droogs | 2 comments »

Where to start? At the beginning I suppose. Well, not the very beginning as that would entail going all the way back to a rather dreary wet Tuesday afternoon (and it was, I’ve checked) in an equally dreary and dank tenement building in Glasgow in 1968. For you dear reader I think perhaps that that may be a little too far and not very interesting and it would also be definitely far off the mark, as far as the subject of this tome to come is concerned, as could be. So, I guess I will begin s...

My 2008 "Not Just Any Box" Winter Awards #6: Carving drawer handles

01-17-2008 09:59 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 16 comments »

Yesterday afternoon, I shifted my gears into the carving mode I decided to make drawer handles, & decided that a small rose would look kind of nice. Actually, to tell you the truth, I had made that decision when first designing the box.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~First I picked out a piece of cut off, & drill 3 holes with my plug cutter. These plugs will later be used to hold the rose while caving, & also for fastening to the drawer front. ...
