Blast from My not so Distant Past! #1: Wedding Cake Table

07-17-2012 02:15 AM by Ethan Harris | 0 comments »

Hello All, Well I did some inventory of my pallet stock and I need more pallets to begin my entertainment center project http://blogspud.blogspot.com/2012/07/pallet-board-corner-entertainment.html So I have to wait till I can re-assess my inventory after my next pallet pickup on Wednesday evening. In the mean time however, I decided to post something that is not related to my pallet craft blog. Introducing my side (filler) blog, “Blast from My not so Distant Past!” I w...

Tilting a Dado Set

I was designing a project a few days ago, and a couple of the joints would use angled dado’s. I’m wondering if anyone has done this and opinions on the safety of doing so.

Old Chisel Rehab

07-11-2012 12:03 PM by llwynog | 20 comments »

Several months ago, I bought a few old chisels and sharpened them up. Among them I found this sorry fellow : Having a sharp chisel is nice but having one you can grip is better so I decided to try my home-made pole/bungee lathe (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/63606) to make myself a new handle. The old handle came off without issue : Then I sawed off a brass plumbing coupler to make a ferule… Planed a chunk of plum (mirabelle) tree to rough dimensions… ...

Traditional Tajik Woodcarving

07-10-2012 01:45 AM by JoshOne | 6 comments »

Soon after I arrived in Tajikistan, I started noticing impressive examples of hand-carved ornamentation on doors, gates, signs, and crown moulding all over the capital and beyond. When I went to the Tajik Museum of Antiquities and saw similar carvings that came out of excavations from the time of Alexander the Great, I knew this needed further examination. I wanted to talk to some craftsmen. Today I got into a cab today and asked the driver if he knew of a workshop. He made some calls and...

Chopping the mortise--Bevel edged or traditional mortise chisel (video)

07-05-2012 07:24 AM by Paul Sellers | 17 comments »

Chopping the mortise—Bevel edged or traditional mortise chisel I recently saw a Youtube video put together by Lie Nielsen where it shows a mortise being cut behind glass; the idea was to show the progression of the traditional method using a traditional ‘pig-sticker’ mortise chisel and I understand it was Roy Underhill who came up with the idea, which was wonderful.     As a boy in school I was shown this method and indeed we were trained that w...

Roubo Bookstand ~ Part One

07-02-2012 09:54 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 12 comments »

The Roubo bookstand. It is one piece that truly fascinates me. Why? Perhaps it is the wooden hinge or the fact that the entire piece is made from one section of wood. The curves and the overall shape give it a look the outdoes anything with metal hardware. They are fun to make and a joy to look at. For this project I did not want to rush and make a mistake, so I am splitting it over two days. I picked out my last piece of mahogany and packed some tools and headed off. Now to make the Roubo...

Intarsia Basics #6: We are Almost There!!

06-25-2012 01:00 AM by KoryK | 14 comments »

Welcome back and again sorry for taking so long to get this post out. After my hand healed I was really backed up on some other projects. I’m almost caught up and will post some of those projects on my page in the next couple of days. When we left off we had all the sanding done and are ready for staining and finishing. I’m making two of these frogs, one that will need staining and one out of exotic wood so everyone can participate in this project. We will go over staining next. I’m...

Eps 25 My Crappy version of the Roubo Bookstand

My attempt at making the Roubo Bookstand. It didn’t turn out all that great, but I still learned a lot. It’s a good way to improve you chiseling skills.

I'm Back!!!

06-07-2012 12:50 PM by Woodworker_Collins | 7 comments »

I have been away recently because I have been so busy on projects lately but I am going to post them right now. The projects are an end grain cutting board made for mahogany and oak, a small stool made entirely from hand tools and a new and improved chisel and screwdriver rack (at least compared to my old one) using my kreg jig i got for my birthday and a great way to store wood in a shed workshop without putting up shelves or losing floor space.
