Mosaics in Wood #1: Reveal Video - 7 Sisters Mosaic In Wood

12-02-2014 01:04 AM by Mathew Nedeljko | 3 comments »

I’m in the process of finishing my fourth Lazy Susan project that I call 7 Sisters using the Mosaic in Wood technique. I made this “Reveal” video to capture how the colors and grain of the walnut, cherry and maple pop as the finish goes on. This is definitely one of my favorite moments in the project build. http://youtu.be/eOKBKctmbl0 Hope you enjoy!

Why buy it when you can make it! #26: Too many cutting boards...

11-30-2014 01:56 AM by paxorion | 0 comments »

We had a slight break in the cold weather in my neck of the woods, so I ducked outdoors to do a bit of sanding of the cutting boards my wife asked me to make as Christmas presents for several of her family members. The router bit I used for my router sled left a bit of a mangled surface on the 3 end-grain cutting boards, so armed with a brand new Ridgid belt sander, I got to work with some cautious sanding. I can’t say I’m too experienced with a belt sander, so I am rather pro...

Workbench Build #9: Vise End Cap

11-24-2014 05:08 AM by Mark Kornell | 7 comments »

Finally got some time to get back on the bench. After all, its only been 5 months since I last worked on it. Decided to tackle the end cap on the vise side. Condor tails for joinery, naturally :-) Popular Woodworking recently sent out an email with article from Jameel Abraham (Mr. Benchcrafted) on the process, pretty easy to follow. Link: http://www.popularwoodworking.com/techniques/make-condor-tails First, though, I laid out the tails full size and played around with sizes to get so...

My entry into the Christmas Ornament Challenge

11-16-2014 04:58 AM by cpine | 4 comments »

This is my entry into the Christmas Ornament Challenge put on by Alan Stratton and Carl Jacobson. This is the third annual challenge and I ma amazed at the beautiful ornaments folks have made! This idea came to me as I have made toys quit a bit in the past and I thought just make a version of an airplane that is smaller. Proportions were determined mostly on the fly and are just approximations of what should look good. Much of what I did I had in my head and I made the first piece then fit ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1438: Six More Sleigh Ornaments

11-05-2014 12:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

To begin with, I want to thank you all for the encouraging comments on the new ornaments. It really feels nice to have so many cheerleaders when I am making a new project. It makes all the hard work so much worth it, knowing that people appreciate what I am doing. I spent the bulk of yesterday working on cutting out the remaining six pieces, and I began the finishing  process. The cutting took probably about three hours and then I carefully sanded the pieces.  I was a little co...

Reshaping a Stanley Sweetheart #62 Tote

11-04-2014 05:44 PM by Mauricio | 11 comments »

The other day I was working from home, I was bummed out because I had been to busy to do much woodworking lately, so I said “Hey, standing desks are supposed to be good for your, and my “joinery bench” is about the right height, why not put my laptop on the bench?!” If I cant woodwork, I can at least be around my tools. One thing leads to another and while on a conference call I get the bug in me to reshape this plane tote. I’ve always disliked the shape of...

Building a wall hanging tool cabinet #6: #6

10-29-2014 04:48 AM by exelectrician | 5 comments »

Got another coat of Deft on and reorganized the interior tool placement Opening the interior panel reveals my mostly metalworking tools, a thin strip jig for the T/Saw, ancient bit brace, etc., With the panel closed which I think I will be using most. I hope to have my every day tools close at hand, I still have about a square foot and a half of space to allocate to about 16 more tools I use all the time. The detail of my modified marking gauge, this puppy won’t roll off my be...

Building a wall hanging tool cabinet #5: Tool cabinet #5:

10-19-2014 02:55 AM by exelectrician | 9 comments »

Put on two coats of Deft semigloss, then made drawer pulls and door handles from recycled ebony piano keys, added an interior baltic birch panel and the most important thing, I got The cabinet mounted on the wall. The moulded edge was masked off and two coats of stain applied prior to gluing the door frame, now that the surrounding parts are finished, the color difference is hardly noticeable, my experiment worked kinda, oh well…Still have a load of decisions to make to figure ou...
