Maple Frame & Panel Box #5: Ends are made

08-05-2018 02:18 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, first..the front and back frames came out of the clamps…..not quite perfectly matched…we have ways Clamped together, back to back. Ran the #3c plane around, until they are matched up.. Set these aside, for now. Have the four corner blocks for the end frames to do….cut them all to the final length on the mite box. Gang them up into the vise, and try to get them all the same size.. One of them was having “issues”. Had a bit of trouble with i...

Maple Frame & Panel Box #2: Cutting parts for the frames

08-02-2018 10:16 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Got that panel up of the clamps…and out of my way…. This is what the “Plan” looks like…but nothing is set in stone….have to adapt to what sizes I have on hand.. Made a “cut list” of sorts…it said I needed 4 pieces @ 3/4×1-1/2×8-1/2” so those were milled.. It also said I needed 4 pieces @ 3/4” x 1” x 8-1/2” milled those up…..then things got….changed..List called for 4 pieces, t...

Maple Frame & Panel Box #1: A start up

08-01-2018 04:36 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Have a large pile of Maple, and other hardwood scraps in the shop. Don’t really want to burn them….maybe a bit of resaw work….and wind up with a Frame & Panel Box/ Mini Chest? May make it similar to a Walnut & Cherry box I made a long while back. First, need to resaw some of the chunks down a bit.. Part of the stash. Bandsaw has a 1/4” blade on it.. While it is less stress on the saw, with the replacement motor, at least it is sharper than this ...

How I made #5: Wooden business card holder

07-31-2018 07:51 AM by WoodenWorldDenic | 2 comments »

I used various types of light and dark wood to create a business card holder: walnut, cherry, oak and thermally processed ash. In later versions, I improved my basic design a little, I reduced the lock and made it easier to take cards from the box with one hand. Here is a video

DIY Marking Knife

06-27-2018 04:35 PM by wrenchhead | 4 comments »

My 14 year old son has been wanting to do some blacksmithing and make a knife for a while now so before i go and build a forge and buy an expensive anvil I thought a marking knife would be a good beginner project to teach him what little bits I know about metal working and some woodworking. This project required minimal tools and my son got to learn a few new skills. I had a blast spending the weekend with him in the woodshop and I think he had a good time too. Thanks for watching https://...

Indian pottery and pyrography #5: More burning

06-06-2018 02:54 PM by Julian | 5 comments »

The wood burning can be a slow and tedious process but the results are worth the effort in my opinion. This will be the final post for this blog. I have a little more work to do on this pattern but will post in the projects section when it is completed.

Indian pottery and pyrography #4: Starting the pyrography

06-05-2018 02:28 PM by Julian | 2 comments »

With the pattern all drawn in pencil it is much easier to burn the lines.I used a skew tipped pyrography pen. The straight edge on the pen tip helps burn a straight line.

I decided to make this turning from cherry. The cherry get a little darker with age but the pyrography should easily stand out. The piece is approximately 11” in diameter and 8” tall. 16 segments per ring.

• Two-Tier Side Table #8: Some Assembly Required

05-14-2018 11:38 PM by Ron Aylor | 10 comments »

Some Assembly Required –  With all of the zig-zag decorated aprons and three of the carved sides complete, I though it time to cut mortises and dry fit the table frame together. I must say it was quite fun channeling my inner Peter Follansbee, but it’s time to put away the carving tools and get out the joinery tools …  … but first … I took the time to make two interlocking trays to hold my newly acquired gouges. All I have used so far is No. 7 straight gouges – 20mm & 10...
