Land of Nod #2: Joinery

177 days ago by byerbyer | 4 comments »

Over the course of couple of weeks I slowly milled the pieces down to final dimensions and it was time to start with the joinery! The “headboard” ends, as I call them, will be mortise and tenoned with the spindles captured between an upper an lower rail. Because I’m a glutton for punishment I decided I’d do a double tenon to give the frame plenty of strength. Considering I hadn’t cut/chopped a mortise in over a decade it was going to be sink or swin… I cut ...

Education and torment #2: Red Oak Sandpaper Storage cabinet

179 days ago by GeneR | 3 comments »

This cabinet is made from leftover red oak, Luan, birch plywood and plexiglass that I had in my shop. It is approximately 17”T x 7 1/2”W x 6” deep. I would have liked to make it a little taller to handle a couple more shelves and slightly deeper to have been able to recess the back panel. The Box I first sent the oak through the joiner to ensure I had 1 flat square edge. I then cut the board to the proper widths on my table saw then to final lengths on the Miter...

This came to me in an email. Too good not to pass on...November 20, 2013 In the NewsOne tree, four years of work and an indescribable amount of talent: that’s what it took to create this incredible masterpiece. A famous Chinese wood carver chopped down a single tree and tirelessly worked on it for over four years to make this piece. Your jaw will hit the floor when you see what he created.It all started out with a simple tree trunk….Then Zheng Chunhui, a famous wood carver, spent over four ye...

wood tick tools #2: In the begining

185 days ago by woodtickgreg | 4 comments »

This is one of the very first carbide insert tools I ever made. I had purchased a square rougher to try out and I was immediately sold on the concept. The thing that I like about the carbide insert tools was I did not have to concentrate on riding the bevel. Also no catches or very minimal catches, just turn, no trips to the grinder to sharpen, and the tool rest takes all the beating when roughing. I liked the tool so much for roughing that I said hey, I can make tools like these and so the ...

wood tick tools #1: a blog series about my tool making starting with my logo

186 days ago by woodtickgreg | 5 comments »

I am going to do a blog about the carbide insert lathe tools that I have made for myself and that I sell to fellow wood turners. I’m kinda new to blogging here and I hope the learning curve isn’t too steep, LOL. I asked in the forums section trade and swap if it was ok to sell tools here and the admin said no but I could blog about them and link them in my signature so I will abide by that answer and do just that. I will try and do this slowly over a few entries as I have lots of ...

First this lovely Veritas dovetail guide and this great addition to my router plane, an inlay cutter head Just got back from Woodcrafters with some lovely ...

Hand Tool Ramblings #3: The Anarchists Bug Out Box

199 days ago by rustythebailiff | 4 comments »

Living here in sunny FLA, we don’t have to worry about ice and snow. But, we do get the occasional tornado. And hurricanes are not unheard of. So, as my hand tool collection has grown over the years, it suddenly occurred to me that if I had to flee from impending natural disaster, it would take me a good hour to gather up my precious hand tools. Now, not to downplay the importance of my power tools, but they are easier to replace than some of my vintage hand tools. So, after watc...

Education and torment #1: Canary wood Box

207 days ago by GeneR | 0 comments »

The box is 4” square and made from canary wood and walnut, with a birdseye maple and walnut top. This started as an idea for the wifes Christmas present and grew to a little monster. I first decided on the box size being determined buy the length and thickness of the piece of canary wood. the piece was about 28 in long 4 1/2” wide and 1/2” thick so 4” square gave me some screw up room. At this time I figured I would use a 1/4” piece of plywood for the bo...
