Fulton 18" Lathe Chisle Handle

06-07-2011 03:47 PM by WoodArtbyJR | 2 comments »

This is on special at Peachtree Woodworking right now for 50% off ($42.59, reg $84.99). http://www.ptreeusa.com/edirect_060311.htmAnyone have one of these and or has anyone used them? I’m thinking of buying the Ci1 & Ci0, in the un-handled version, (based on reviews here at LJ) and thought these handles might be a step UP? I guess the real question is, a handle is a handle, right? OR, once you buy a handle (or 2) then you can purchase future chisles in the un-handled version an...

Quartersawn White Oak Display Cabinet #1: Making the back panel.

03-13-2011 12:00 AM by Brian024 | 6 comments »

Buildup of a small display cabinet I’m working on that will hold Riker boxes, holding that hold coins/buttons/medals. Really good weekend project and a good beginner project to. Made from quartersawn white oak since it gives a good rustic feel. I’m still getting used to filming and one thing I notice is I need a lot more light.

Carving Green Wood #1: How much will green carving wood move?

08-08-2013 05:13 PM by Tom Pritchard | 2 comments »

I have been carving for sometime and lately I have been carving some walking sticks. The material I use is fallen sticks found in the forest. The stick is still green, but I still carve. A friend of mine asked me by using a green wood, would the wood warp and crack? I said, well I’m not sure. To me it’s ok if it warps some because it’s only stick. The twisting and warping may improve the looks. Can anyone else share there thoughts about carving green wood and what you might ...

My New Workbench #3: Chopping the Leg Mortises

07-08-2015 03:20 PM by mramseyISU | 0 comments »

Time to get on with the part I was dreading the most, chopping mortise for the legs in the benchtop. I was dreading this because they were so big, 1”W x 4”L x 2”D to be exact. I roughed out the tenons on my tablesaw with a dado stack so nothing really to see there, then I finished them with my router plane. Next came the chop chop. These were the first mortises I’ve ever tried to cut completely with hand tools. I’ve done several where I drilled out most of the wa...

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

07-24-2014 12:04 AM 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...

Ambrosia-birdseye maple #6: carving the inlay

12-02-2011 03:51 AM by JoeyG | 6 comments »

As I mentioned at the beginning of this, these two boxes will be for my wife and daughter. Today I was able to get back to working on them and did a little carving on the lids. If you would like to see more about how I do my epoxy inlays you can check it out at http://lumberjocks.com/JoeyG/blog/26663. I am not going into a lot of detail, since most of it is covered there. I just wanted to share the pictures of the progress and keep this as up to date as possible. You will notice that I...

Curved Front End Table #3: Internal Shelf, Divider and Glue Up

03-26-2016 12:29 PM by Guy Dunlap | 6 comments »

Now that I know the thickness of the doors, I can start working on the internal structure of the piece. I have to account for being able to put the lower shelf and divider for the drawer being put into the piece after glue up, so I have to do some unconventional things to get it to work. After I get those made, I taper the legs and do the initial glue up. Then I modify my bending jig to make the cut to separate the curved front into two doors. As always, I welcome your questions and commen...

Messed up chisels: Or how I learned to stop worrying and Love the grinder

04-11-2009 09:39 PM by marcb | 4 comments »

I picked up a couple old chisels recently and last weekend got off my butt and for the first time used the power grinder to get an initial angle on them. I’m an old woodworking machine guy, but I have a newish little Craftsman grinder. I don’t have any fancy white wheels a nice stand with a cup for quenching or a super deluxe tool rest. I just plugged it in and got to work. This is the first time I ever ground an edge on a power tool of any kind. So if I can do it, anyone c...

Finger Joints, my way #1: Making finger joints....

03-09-2017 06:50 PM by bandit571 | 7 comments »

Also known as Box Joints. Not saying this is the “perfect” way to do these, but, this is how I do them. First off, I get the four sides all milled to size. Nice when they are the same width and thickness So, for this little “How to”, I have these Pine boards. I made them about 3/8” thick, and all are about 3-1/2” wide.Boards can be about any size, but they need to be close to the same size no matter how thick or wide they are. I start with t...
