Native American Indian Flute with an Australian twist #5: Finished

4 hours ago by icemanhank | 1 comment »

Hi everybody, I have finished the flute now and I am very happy with how it has turned out. I was quite concerned about getting the finger holes correct and had some help from Charlie Mato-Toyela who spent about 90’ on the phone from the USA to Australia to help me get the pitch and the tuning correct, Charlie is a indeed wonderful person. His Youtube page is Blue Bear Flutes which I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who is contemplating making one of these lovely instrument...

Tool Box #2: case work

14 days ago by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, spent a bit of time getting the case put together. Things just seem to roost on my benchtop. Setting the panels upside down on an almost flat benchtop. Clamp an end panel to the front/back panel. The longer panels have a series of counter-bored screw holes, about seven per corner. Clamp a corner together, add a few screws, move the clamp a bit to uncover the one or two that are hiding under them. Work my way around, by adding the other end panel, rotate the three piece set aro...

Native American Indian Flute with an Australian twist #2: Making the flute

19 days ago by icemanhank | 6 comments »

I have a couple of pics so far. I had to make a join in the timber so I dowelled it together at the block of the flute. I think the next step is to join the pieces together and start shaping the outside. I have heard it is a good idea to finish the inside of the SAC with a waterproof finish to stop any condensation getting in there and ruining the timber but am unsure if I should do this or not.

Hmm, only have one ...

Biedermeier/30's Dining Room Table #4: - Ready for finish

21 days ago by Patricelejeune | 12 comments »

Last time I posted on that project I was steam bending my mouldings. The columned were veneered in a previous post. Since this post we had another job to do a video on veneering column with Liquid Hide Glue that we posted on our Old Brown Glue playlist on youtube. It is uploading at the moment so go see it later if you are interested in learning how to veneer columns, we are pretty proud of it. The columns were turned with groves to allow for black rings. T...

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #10: The hidden multiple spline miter joint!

22 days ago by CharlesA | 4 comments »

I had to re-make the spline jig because I made it out of 1/4” ply and my bushing is just shy of 1/2” tall. So it just took a few minutes to make one out of 1/2” ply. I measured and measured. Using a combination square set to 2”, I carefully marked the location of the jig. After doing one side of the joint, I then flipped the jig, used the square to precisely set it in place, and then cut the mortises on the other side of the joint wit the router. Then came sq...

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #9: Turning to the Walnut. How do I clamp this?

23 days ago by CharlesA | 4 comments »

I will cover a few days in this entry, a little time working each day over the last few days. I needed to mill the walnut to two glued up 3/4” thick pieces for the shelf and second leg. The boards were not completely flat nor straight, so a little jointing was necessary before putting them in the thickness planer. Who says one has to have a power jointer to get it done? Got a nice pile of shavings out of this board: There were 3 knots on the backsides of the board I had t...

What to do with an old bed frame?

28 days ago by bandit571 | 6 comments »

That kind of fall apart. Instead of a box spring, it had an old waterbed platform under it Tore things down into “parts” Some posts will get rived apart, as they were three piece glue ups. Longer stuff to be cut down a bit I think I will keep these pieces. Got to sawing stuff down. Working down some leg parts. The goal was to build a Frame & Panel Tool Chest, using the parts from the old bed. Rive a board means to split it down the length, hoping for ...

Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #5: Triumphal Finish, A Long Entry

34 days ago by CharlesA | 1 comment »

My nephew didn’t want any more pics to go up until he had a chance to show it to his mother and grandmother (my sister), so I haven’t posted any update. However, since today was return to home day, all may be revealed. After finishing the main box, he cut and glued four cleats to the underside of the top. He clamped up the front and back cleats first, and then snuck up on the length of side cleats. They fit perfectly. I guess I didn’t take any pictures of him cuttin...
