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 ...

Exercises in Artisanship #23: Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table: Part 6 THE FINAL

08-14-2012 07:28 PM by jjw5858 | 4 comments »

This table is special I suppose because it is my first. My shop being set in all natural conditions sure made this a spread out project, there were some truly brutal hot and humid days that let this sit and wait for a better time to work with it. I wanted a piece that had touches of rustic warmth supported with lines of a Renaissance rhythm. To stand back and see the entire composition in it’s thought out form, from some ragged sketches to this on my living room floor is a nice reward for ...

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...

Just for fun - Horned Owl

02-25-2011 04:13 PM by David Craig | 18 comments »

Recently, I read a blog by littlecope entitled Make Something!. Apparently Mike, on occasion, does something just for the spirit of it, just to have fun (whatever that is). It has been a hectic week and haven’t had much shop time, but I did find a few hours in the middle of the week in which I could do a little something. So I thought I might see what this “Fun” thing was all about. I have a vast collection of scraps, parts of branches of trees, broken furniture, basicall...

My Award for 2009 Lumberjocks Summer Challenge #1: MY CONTEST AWARD CERTIFICATE for 3rd PLACE CAME!

08-22-2009 06:40 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 20 comments »

It came in the mail the other day, so I contacted Terry Desilets of CUSTOM BRANDING IRONS. I decided to order a custom design, instead of the stock. Terry was very helpful in helping me design my brand. He’s seems like a very good person to do business with. I sent him my signature, & he made a couple of design layouts of for me to choose from. I chose the design I liked the best, & sent my order in. He said I should receive it in a couple of weeks. SO NO...

YAPPING inloud #2: Uncle Joe Died, Wish he was closer to me when I was younger so I could learn from him..

04-27-2011 02:04 AM by RichClark | 2 comments »

My Uncle Joe Dies a few days ago and while I can’t say I knew him well I wish I did. His hobby was “Chip Carving” and he was up in ” Master Land” Doing it… here are some examples of his work He will be missed.. Last year he sent me a package with a chip knife and a Video Tape (that I couldn’t watch)and a small pile of wood that he had taken the time to layout and cut several designs into over and over and over.To help teach me the...

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...

Small Secretary With Tambour Door #7: Inlay, Inlay and More Inlay

02-08-2015 05:36 AM by Guy Dunlap | 4 comments »

I start out by creating a template for the oval fan medallions that will be recessed into the front of the leg. I then work on the recesses for the banding that will go on the rails. The banding on the legs at the top must match the rails exactly, and I show how I accomplish this. Then it’s cutting for the banding on the legs, along with additional stringing that will be on the front of the legs. I wrap it all up by gluing all the banding and string inlay into the legs and the rails. As al...

"Wo kann ich Holz finden!?" or "Where can I find wood!?"

08-25-2011 05:02 PM by Ryan | 6 comments »

I’ve been desperate for anywhere to find wood, or Holz. I try and find simple wood and I can’t find any! I’m getting desperate! This is how low I’ve sunk. I currently was in the PX looking for some things for the kitchen, and I found aromatic cedar hangs. In my desperation, like Gollum, I snatched several up and clutched them to my chest as though someone was going to steal them from me. I feel like an addict, trying to find a fix.. HELP ME GET MY FIX!!! :D

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...
