Intarsia Basics #4: Part 4 Coming Soon (Sorry)!!!!

799 days ago by KoryK | 9 comments »

I just wanted to update on the status of the class and inform every one of the delay. For those of you that do not know, I had a misfortunate (stupid?) accident and broke a bone in my right hand a couple of weeks ago. I was hoping that I had progressed far enough beforehand that it would not affect the class. Unfortunately the bones are not healing correctly and it is taking longer for ir it to heal. I tried again tonight, but do not have enough dexterity or hand strength to sand while I...

Roy's Mystery Mallet #3: Dressed and Ready for Work

850 days ago by pastorglen | 5 comments »

As promised, here’s the final outcome of Roy Underhill’s Mystery Mallet. As you can see, I shaped the handle a little differently than they showed in the magazine. I like the squared-off handle better. I also stained the head one color and then applied several coats of tung oil to the whole thing. Thanks, again, to venues like LJ, Roy Underhill, and the folks over at Popular Woodworking. My woodworking is better because of you all.

Collapsible Castles, my first

1259 days ago by MasterSergeant | 3 comments »

Being new to the “blogging” stuff here I go. Let me start out by saying I am new to woodworking and my goal is to learn how to 1. use my used/new woodworking equipment safely and efficiently and 2. learn how to cut/carve/sculpture wood into beautify/functional items. I want to be able to complete the interior trim work on the house my wife and I just built. I wanted to learn how to use my new Jet 18” band-saw first and foremost. I just completed a pretty neat little ...

Tools I make (sharpening stones, planes and irons) #2: Just a little wood, I have 2 loves wood and steel (wood most).

2307 days ago by Daren Nelson | 12 comments »

I have not followed up on my plane making series as I promised, sorry. This is an addition, but not very much wood related either. I hope no one feels it is too off subject. Another jock (zebrano) posted a knife handle and sheath he made as a project, it prompted me to blog this knife. EDIT: THERE IS PLANE IRON INFO ADDED AFTER THE KNIFE I made this for my brother. He is left handed and there is actually a right-left handed sushi knife. He lives on a boat (50’ Hatteras motor yacht...

Evolution of my router planer #7: Version 1.2c (had to tweak it again)

1067 days ago by TZH | 5 comments »

Found out the trex clamps I talked about in my last version (http://lumberjocks.com/TZH/blog/24588) weren’t strong enough to withstand the pressure exerted by the bolt going through, plus didn’t hold the sled rigidly enough (too much diagonal movement). So, back to the drawing board. Figured a clamp should function like a clamp no matter what the design is, so I used 2×4’s for the stationary clamp (first photo) and 2×2’s (oak – second photo) for the mov...

SPOON CARVING #2: Regarding wood slection

1094 days ago by Spoontaneous | 6 comments »

I had posted the following in the first part of the ‘blog’ (comment section) and someone was kind enough to suggest that it might be easier to find posted as a new segment/addition. Now that I have been educated, I will post the upcoming tools discussion as Part 3 and the step-by-step as future segments. A little bit about wood selection: For NON-functional spoons the choice in wood is completely open, although there ARE considerations. If you plan to carve in great deta...

"Methods to My Madness: Designing and Carving a Cane" #2: Handle Designs

1339 days ago by mpounders | 4 comments »

So the shaft portion of the cane has been selected. The over all height of the cane will be measured from the highest part of the handle to the tip of the shaft, so it is important to include all of these elements when sizing the cane, always remembering that is easier to cut the cane shorter than it is to make it longer. A normal measurement used for canes is typically from the floor to the bend of a person’s wrist. I like my canes a little taller and usually add 2-3 inches to the meas...

Chip Carving Class - Quilt Squares #8: Lesson 4: Pattern Transfer

1214 days ago by MyChipCarving | 16 comments »

Lesson 4: Pattern Transfer The goal of pattern transfer has got to be to get the pattern on the wood as quickly, easily, and accurately as possible. That should be our goal. In this video I’ll show you three methods for pattern transfer. The first two methods work fine and I used them exclusively for many years. But they are slower, more difficult, and not as accurate as the third method – which is using the Pattern Transfer Tool. I suppose you can tell which method I pre...

Wood Carved Jhoola

1170 days ago by Dennis Zongker | 27 comments »

I just finished carving this unique indoor India swing bench, for a customer, it is also known as the Oonjal or Jhoola. This type of swing bench is not readily available without an overseas order. These types’ of wooden carved swings were used by Kings in their palaces and were considered a sign of royalty and are still considered even today. This type of furniture is a wooden swing with brass chains suspending it from the ceiling of the inside of their home. I glued together three plan...

Chip carving patterns #3: Grid pattern #1

1597 days ago by lovestoys | 2 comments »

Found a cool trick to help with the dry air of winter carving. I’ve been placing a piece of dampened paper towel around the wood blank an hour or two before I carve. When I first did it, I just put it on one side, which lead to some weird warping, but when the blank re-dried it was flat again (whew). This pattern relies almost entirely on the basic triangle cuts, so it’s good for practice. I used a simple flower motif in the center, it can be left blank or used for some...
