"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

shotgun #3: second part of the carving

07-09-2009 05:34 AM by kolwdwrkr | 8 comments »

Well here I am now. The carving continues. I believe now that I am done with this first side. I wasn’t sure what to do to be honest with you, so I just sat there at the couch with it on my lap. I cut a piece of paper and taped it to the gun, cutting around the Drake. I just started doodling on it while watching TV and this is what I came up with. I decided that I wanted his Initials on the piece, but also knew I wanted them framed in leaves. These leaves are out of my head, so the...

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 Creche (manger) #4: The Star of Bethlehem - Done!

03-27-2012 08:28 PM by greg48 | 4 comments »

Well, I came up with a solution for paring the star and here is how it came out:.first I cut out the pieces to their overall dimension and cut 45’s on the intersecting ends,....then I pin nailed some strips to aid in the glue-up,....laid out the cut-out and facet lines, cutting the exterior on the b.s. and planing the edges to the mark out lines,....glued up the shaped pieces using some high tech clamps,.. ..using the cut off pieces as wedges, I was able to secure the star while pari...

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.

Irish History

04-23-2010 11:22 PM by TMcG | 5 comments »

I’m currently on holiday in Ireland and thought you folks might appreciate this shot, apologies for the somewhat shoddy photo’s, of a circa 1570 Chest, Yep, thats right, 1570 !! I must admit that this trip has been really different as I’ve found a whole new perspective on things like that chest and a couple of cooperage exhibitions at Jamison’s and Guinness. Amazing workmanship given it was built 450 odd years ago. tony
