A Great Antler Tip Writing Pen Tutorial To View

01-07-2008 03:58 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 6 comments »

In this wide world, you just never know how different things will connect us together. Throw in the mix a crazy internet full of stuff, and we more often “bump” into others with similar interests. I have used Shed deer and elk antlers to make a variety of things for several years now, and finding the sheds was my biggest problem. Once I had an antler, I could make something with it. But finding out where a “buck” would drop his prize is another problem entirely. ...

Entry Closet Project #8: The End is Here!

01-09-2008 04:58 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 31 comments »

Finished! Well it’s been a long journey and it did not end without one extra push. I finished installing the copper handles Monday by 11:30. There was a couple of scratches but I was certain I could buff them out. This is a skill that goes with the territory. I worked on the finish for the next six hours and I could not get the finish to blend. How to Remove a Scratch- After exhausting all other options this is what I resorted to today: Yes you are seeing it correctly...

Church Altar Restoration and Matching Side Altars Project Bid Submitted 11-10-2006

11-13-2006 03:33 AM by Mark A. DeCou | 1 comment »

New Bid SubmittedThis morning I sent out my bid for a commissioned job to build two side altars for a church, matching the old original center altar. After spending so much time estimating and pondering if I left anything out, or put too much in the bid, I am glad I have finally made the decision, typed it up, and sent it out. This project will involve some pretty complicated woodworking, the type of challenge that I like. The church board will review the bids this weekend, and I should kn...

Entry Closet Project #4: Project Moving Forward

12-19-2007 06:30 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 18 comments »

Success- I installed the big door today with a helping hand. The careful planning paid big dividends in an incredibly smooth and accurate install. Before doing the veneer work, I installed and fitted the doors. The doors were then taken to the shop and finished. The hinges were numbered and went back into the same locations. This meant that the final install required no additional adjustment. This is what I call jobsite theory, and it worked out this time. Getting a handle on it&...

Win a Baseball bed

10-30-2010 04:48 PM by Chris Davis | 4 comments »

I am giving away one of my baseball beds to the person that can guess the winning team, last game, and score of the World Series. It’s not as hard as you think, we already have two games down. An example of a guess would be Texas, 4 to 3, game 7. Don’t post here. I can only track the guesses on Facebook. The bed will be a twin size Baseball bad with the score of the last game on the headboard. It will include the headboard, foot board, side rails, slats, and shipping (the ...

Turning Photographs into Wood Art

03-18-2013 01:23 PM by Chris Mobley | 2 comments »

Some of my favorite projects to do is turning photographs into wood art. Each piece is unique and has special characteristics that mean something special to the customer. Taking something that a customer loves and turning it into artwork preserves that thing along with the memories that surround it. Some of the most common request that I get for these types of custom projects are vehicles, pets, homes, etc. I enjoy creating these because each one is custom and there is not another like...

I have not given Celtic knotwork much thought in the past when it comes to creating Intarsia pieces until I was asked to do the Celtic Love knotwork project a while ba...

Reshaping a Stanley Sweetheart #62 Tote

11-04-2014 05:44 PM by Mauricio | 11 comments »

The other day I was working from home, I was bummed out because I had been to busy to do much woodworking lately, so I said “Hey, standing desks are supposed to be good for your, and my “joinery bench” is about the right height, why not put my laptop on the bench?!” If I cant woodwork, I can at least be around my tools. One thing leads to another and while on a conference call I get the bug in me to reshape this plane tote. I’ve always disliked the shape of...
