French Fry Friday #1: November 5, 2010

11-05-2010 03:31 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

I started a theme for each day of the week. Fridays will be “French Fry Friday” and I’ll be talking about some sort of accessories that I build. Why “French Fry Friday”? I always here “would you like fries with that?” Fries are a side item and not part of the main meal. Same thing with the accessories or smaller items that I build. I blog about the big stuff but neglect the smaller stuff. So hear is a chance for often overlooked items to shine. This first one is a bookcase that was part of...

Samples Shipped for a Custom Steak Knife Set; with Antler Handles, Scrimshaw and Inlay work.

11-11-2007 08:57 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 9 comments »

For the past 14 months, I have waited patiently to see if my investment in a prestigious national woodworking show would pay off. Sure it was a lot of fun to be counted acceptable by the jury, and to attend the show, but it is hugely expensive for a small one-man operation like I run here. Not only just the cost of the booth fees, but getting things ready to take is a huge undertaking, renting a truck, fuel, hotel, food, etc. I was disappointed with the “return” on my investmen...

Oyster knives #2: finally figuring it out

07-01-2014 03:37 PM by piddlinchic | 8 comments »

not sure if this link showed up but I tried pasting it from my Facebook page. If not, you can just go to the page. I will be adding more as I finish them. www.facebook.com/piddlinchic I’ve been having fun with these knives. Recycling “trash” has it’s own rewards. I could probably do a better job and save a lot of time by buying steel stock or precut knife blades, but this is much more fun and challenging.

Entry Closet Project #7: One Step Closer!

01-06-2008 03:16 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 26 comments »

Another Milestone I am pretty excited to share with you guys today’s progress. I got all of the handle pieces finished! Next I have some touch up on the doors and the final install. I am sure I will have a full day of technical sweating. I had to brush the pieces again on the wire wheel to brighten the finish. I then hung them from the ceiling and wiped them down thoroughly with acetone. This strips any oil from the surface. I sprayed them with an acrylic resin lacquer by Sh...

Time lapse Woodworking #1: Attaching a coffee table storage shelf with dowels

12-14-2010 03:55 AM by Canadian Woodworks | 4 comments »

In this time lapse, i’m building a trestle coffee table from Walnut. At this point i’m attaching the underside storage to the top of the table. The underside of the top and entire storage shelf has been sanded up to 500 grit and buffed with a wool pad to burnish and clean out the pores in the wood. What a shine one can achieve from just bare wood, its amazing, silky smooth! First I measure and drill the holes for the 2’’ x 3/8’’ dowels that will attach...

I posted my latest furniture projects to the LJ gallery before I put them in my own website, that just shows how you guys rate, but I did get them added to my site and they have many more detailed shots of the construction. You will find them under the heading “Current Events” in the navigation bar. I still do remodeling and my latest remodel project is posted under the same “Current Events.” It is not always just about woodworking, but it is always about design ...

Time lapse Woodworking #8: Sanding and Assembly Frame & Panel

02-01-2011 05:09 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 8 comments »

This time around in our time lapse woodworking series I’m sanding a pair of Canadian Black Walnut panels that will be assembled into a frame and panel. The panels have been re-sawed out of a 2’’ thick board to allow for a beautiful book match, I showed the process in the previous video Re-sawing 2’’ thick Canadian Black Walnut I first start out with 220 sandpaper on our festool RO150, then to 320, 400, 500 and finally a sheep wool pad to burnish and pull out...

This is a chaise lounge we’ve been working on, we designed it a few months ago but have been to busy to get to the actual construction. I’ve now spent a few days fabricating and I’m really excited as to the progress. So I made this cheesy video hope you enjoy.
