Cherry finger jointed box #2: A little bit more done...

08-21-2016 04:15 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Before the storms came through. Shop is closed down, due to a creek running across the floor. Floor drain working good, just was a LOT of rain outside. Had to stop for supper, anyway. Sooo, what all DID I get done? Well, I hauled the Stanley #45 down the stairs,and even brought along that new bottle of glue. Marked out for more finger joints, as I had two more corners to do. Hands were sore from all the handsaw work, so I used the bandsaw instead.. Then clamp it to the ben...

Cherry finger jointed box #1: the start up

08-20-2016 06:32 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

A few weeks ago, picked a slab of wood at a yard sale, for a dollar bill… Slab was 5’ long, just over 1” thick.

Then decided to resaw these into 1/2” thick slabs… Had decent luck with two of the slabs, the other two? Not so nice. Well, maybe I can “make do” with the better stuff? Crosscut the better of the...

Cedar Entertainment Unit #3: Slow but steady progress

08-13-2016 07:03 AM by icemanhank | 0 comments »

I have also cut the mortice and tenon joints for the top of the legs and the rails.Next is cutting and fitting the cross rails which will be double mortice and tenon. I have also made 3 ply corners for the top of the legs which are to be scroll sawn with a beautiful Cherry Blossom design by David Stanley. Hopefully this will all give it a Japanese look and feel.

Relief Carving 1st Project: Eagles Head #3: Chisels

08-12-2016 05:10 PM by edwood1975 | 0 comments »

On the recommendation of a guy I know at Woodcraft he said to buy quality chisels because if you don’t you might not like carving.. So I did ,he recommended Pfeil : Swiss Made carving chisels but as far as chisels go they are on the exspensive side running anywhere from $30 -$60 each from what i can see… So to start my collection off I just got 2 chisels and a good quality mallet .

Relief Carving 1st Project: Eagles Head #1: Inspiration

08-12-2016 04:20 PM by edwood1975 | 0 comments »

So I was watching Rough Cut and Tommy Mac was building a blanket chest and it had a beautiful carved pattern on it and that was all the inspiration I need to start on this road. As well my body is feeling old of late and I just want to do something small and craftsy and not be hauling big ass 4×8 plywood sheet all over the place.
