wood tick tools #2: In the begining

01-07-2014 12:45 AM 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

01-05-2014 07:35 PM 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 ...

I was going to build a humidor for my brother in law, Raul, for Christmas, but at the last minute, I decided to hold off and consult with him to find out his specific desires. Good thing I did, now I’m armed with knowledge, a lot of great new tools to help me facilitate the task, two of which he bought me for Christmas. 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

12-24-2013 04:55 AM 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

12-15-2013 06:36 PM 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...

oak box #10: coat of wet finish

12-06-2013 03:15 AM by Dan'um Style | 6 comments »

Sanded this one to 150 grit and figured a good wet coat of lacquer might bring out the grain a bit. The rosewood and turquoise together for the photo. Will glue last. The turquoise is from eBay China. Fun stuff.

Pochade Box in progress #3: Pallette, trim and oil

11-29-2013 06:42 AM by Jon1094 | 4 comments »

Yesterday I completed the combination pallete and wet canvase holder. It is constucted out of birch plywood with oak inserts for holding the wet canvases. The pallete is finished with two coats of BLO. It is shown out of the box with an inserted canvase and inside the box with the pallete in view. I trimmed the drawers with walnut and put two coats of Danish oil on the box. I’ll let the oil dry for three or four days and then finish with satin wipe on polyurethane. ...

Gun Showcase/Coffee Table #1: Gun showcase/Coffee Table

11-23-2013 05:14 PM by vpbarnwood | 1 comment »

Here is an idea for gun owners that don’t have a gun case or space for a wall gun case. That being said it is not just for guns, you can display just anything that will fit in the case, such as coins, knick knacks, precious mementos. The dimensions are 5’ by 2’ by 18” when it will be finished. There will also be a drawer under the showcase in the center of the table. The wood used is reclaimed barn wood from my barn.
