Christmas Boxes #4: Finished

1365 days ago by Zuki | 4 comments »

One last push and they are done. Here is the box with the dried homemade wood filler. Here it is sanded. Not to bad. Some of the holes were a little to tiny to hold the filler . . . but that’s ok. I will know for next time. Boxes with nameplates attached. DW purchased the plates on-line for next to nothing. Its the second year we purchased engravings from this guy and they have been quality both times. The screws did not come with the plates. They are #4 Robinson...

Ghosts of Christmas Future #4: the ornaments

1368 days ago by scottb | 4 comments »

ok, so 87 days ago I worked out (and blogged) the plan, and workflow to knock off a series of 100 similar turned ornaments. Similar in size and shape, but with a world of variety in the woods used. Rather than attempt another 30 projects in 30 days, 100 of the same seemed similarly challenging, but reasonable enough. I’d only really need to turn 3 a day for a month, plus a couple more on the weekends and I’d be all set. As I’ve previously mentioned, it’s the photogr...

Christmas Boxes #2: Assembly

1372 days ago by Zuki | 0 comments »

I’ll let the pictures do the talking. Two sided tape to hold the sides together for cutting. Sides stuck together and marked for cutting. Front part of the box cut from the sides. I used the BS as it removed the lease amount of material. Back laid in place. Sides and back attached. Front of the box assembled. Test fitting the front. 3/4” brass hinges & most of the pieces for the drawers.

My Tools #2: My Christmas present from mom finally arrived!

1657 days ago by Gary Fixler | 11 comments »

It’s the JET – JSG-96CS: 6’’ x 48’’ Belt / 9’’ Disc Sander w/ Closed Stand, 3/4HP 1Ph, 115V. It arrived by pallet in two boxes: Right away the 3/4HP motor and belt seemed bigger than I’d imagined this past year or two (this has been on my wishlist for awhile now). I had even scaled up my mental image, but it was still bigger than I thought: The closed stand is a very thick sheet metal, and heavier than I expected. It was a...

Segmented Christmas Tree Ornament

1723 days ago by darryl | 11 comments »

After completing the Segmented Vessel, I decided I’d make the segments on my next piece a little thinner than the 3/4” previously used. Since we are all in the Christmas spirit, I thought I’d make a new ornament for our tree this year. The segments in this piece are 1/4” thick, and this piece includes a total of 92 segments. Here’s the before picture of the ornament blank glued up on the lathe. After turning, sanding and the first coat of wipeon polyurethan...

1742 days ago by Chris Davis | 3 comments »

Santa tells reporters in his yearly press conference that, along with recovery effort, many other factors have contributed to the problem. The popularity of a baseball bed, murphy beds, and a Princess Castle Loft have made his schedule very demanding. ...
