Small stuff for Christmas

12-16-2011 05:58 PM by mpounders | 7 comments »

Since I have completed all my major holiday committments, I have just been working on fun things! I am getting some parts for Christmas to re-model my power honer, so I have been cutting out some disks and doing some glue-ups to prepare for that. I plan to make the full 4 disk Burke style sharpener and I hope to use the existing motor I have, but it may not have enough power. I carved this small angel from a Shawn Cipa pattern for a lady at church and will do a larger version as a tree topper...

The old time woodshop journals #37: Woodworkers thoughts by way of world works

12-06-2012 10:43 PM by jjw5858 | 2 comments »

The birch wood I rescued was fast sawn and put to work from hatchet to knives. I eagerly progressed through this grain I had been longing to find shaping my first spoon of this species hoping the sheer victory of acquiring it may lead to something new and improved. I have been trying to look at more classic spoon designs, and realized my quest has been interrupted due to my lack of taking enough wood away…lol. I guess my fears were discovered as I tossed through my tote of past creat...

Exercises in Artisanship #30: The Woodrights Galoot library Part 1

10-18-2012 11:12 PM by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

My beginning library of Woodright Shop DVD’s has grown rather quickly and an idea was sparked by the pile of 5 cases with the sixth soon on it’s way. I at first was excited to purchase some poplar for this project instead of the ole faithful pine…but todays prices jarred my wallet full of common sense…lol. If your not selling these projects friends this stuff can get costly so pine it is! So here is the fun idea for these next few installments of Exercises in Artisanship…...

Carving a Life Size Statue #2: Detailing the Clay

06-06-2016 07:57 PM by Dennis Zongker | 19 comments »

After a month of working with clay I have finally got the customers approval of Jesus on the cross. So far it’s been a great experience learning human anatomy and learning so much about our Lord Jesus Christ, the little details and meaning behind each scar and location of the nails, ect. The clay model is at 1/2 scale 36” tall and the wooden Crucifix will be full scale at 6 feet tall. I am really looking forward to gluing and carving. I miss working with wood since I am a wood ...

Hydraulic Crane (Toys and Joys) #5: Kerf making

08-16-2015 02:50 PM by Dutchy | 4 comments »

In the doors there are small 1/16” kerfs added . To achieve this I considered to make the door in layers but eventually I bought a Pheil cutting knife from 1/32” (1 mm) and curved it into the wood. Maybe 1/16 would have be a better width. Please let me know. There are also 1/16” (2mm) cutting knives. Benefit of this knives is that the knive widht almost automatic will be the kerf width. You may not believe me but in real it looks better than on the picture. ...

Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.

The old time woodshop journals #44: Back to the bench!

05-09-2013 08:59 PM by jjw5858 | 3 comments »

Since taking such an extended time learning many aspects of carving spoons from green timber, I began to miss the other parts of working wood. I missed the use of my old Stanleys, Disstons, and Millers Falls! Yeah….I am a hand tool galoot for sure….GALOOTS UNITE!...LOL. Of course while just starting to excel at carving, understanding the grips and sculpture of spoon making, it was easy to have a worry that my other skills were getting some rust as much as the tools began too!.....

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 ...
