01-31-2012 06:20 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 2 comments »

Well if you have made it this far, why not go a little further and watch the conclusion of this chest. It has been a fun build so far for me. I hope it has been informative and somewhat enjoyable for you to watch as well. Now I know the video quality isnt the best. but As I go on it has gotten better….Now in this present day I have a new camera, lighting and it has helped a lot. Here are the final 3 videos of this chest build. Parts 6, 7, 8 Part 8 was pretty basic, the installation ...

Cherry Blanket Chest #5: Almost done

02-18-2012 07:20 PM by jcwalleye | 4 comments »

With the lid built, joinery done, hinges mortised and everything sanded it’s off to the finishing room. The maple panels were finished earlier while making the frame, so all thats left was finishing the frame parts. There are over 40 frame pieces and I wanted to get as much pre-finishing done as I could. Here is a snapshot of my finishing area and some of the materials I’ll be using. I’ll start with 2 coats of General Finish Seal a Cell, followed by many coats of ArmorSeal. In between...

Exploits collecting "free" wood #1: What am I doing here

11-20-2012 11:12 PM by Monte Pittman | 12 comments »

For those of you that feel like grabbing a chainsaw and go cut some trees to make things out of, this blog is for you. Today started yesterday afternoon. Hook up the trailer, sharpen both saes, make sure you have gas and oil, spare chains and filters. Tinker in the shop for a couple hours and go to bed early. The alarm goes off at 12:45 am. Everything is loaded so it is just a matter of hopping in and going. I am heading 322 miles away. To here ; It looks like a autumn forest ...

Standup Paddleboard Paddles #6: Paddles #3 and 4 and I finally get to use my Dowelmax

12-01-2007 03:29 AM by Bob Babcock | 10 comments »

I’ve decided I really like making paddles. Very creative outlet and not only is it artistically challenging but the dynamics of the blade design are really interesting as well. I’ve got 5 paddles in the works at the moment but #3 is different from my earlier ones. Straight shaft, teardrop, no laminations, dovetail. I added some geometric woodburning, somewhat primitive looking. It also has a channel, kind of the reverse of a dihedral feeding into the dovetail. Paddle #3 I...

Building a Tablesaw Base Part 1

04-11-2013 12:15 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 13 comments »

Recently I had a need to build a new table saw base for my saw. Rather than just building a simple replacement base, I opted to build one with lots of storage potential. This new base measures 6 feet long by 2 feet wide, which gave me good reason to move over to the new shop building. I haven’t yet finished the new shop set up ( haven’t even started) but this build is a great start giving me lots of options for storage potential… This build is a 2 part project. So be sure to...

3 Strings CBG (cigar box guitar) #2: More neck work

10-15-2012 11:40 PM by FreddyS | 2 comments »

Hi again, this time I’ll show you the extra work I did with the neck: You can see in the pic the small cigar box I got for the cbg, a Romeo y Julieta brand, cedar plywood, it is almost too small for the scale I choose (25”) but I will use it anyway, time will tell if I need to replace it. Here I did another “first timer”, a pattern jig to cut a nice shape into the headstock, used double sided tape to attach the pattern to the headstock and routed away… and...

Cedar Window Box (Update)

06-08-2012 04:17 AM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

Hello everyone, a short time ago I posted a project titled Cedar Window Box. In that project post I mentioned that I would check with the client for their approval on posting the dimensioned SketchUp graphics I created. Well, they approved. I put together a brief, and I mean brief, video that includes the dimensions for all of the major components of the window box. I had to do it this way because the graphics were too large to post on the project page. The clarity is not as good as I had ...
