5 Knives #3: Preparing the blanks

09-15-2012 09:14 AM by AJM | 3 comments »

Here are a few photo’s of how i prepared 2 of the blanks although the stainless steal blank broke the m6 die.hopefully i have a solution to this and it will no longer be an issue on the other 2 ss blanks.With the carbon blade i die’d the end first to fit an m6 nut. i use this to help keep the knife clamped together. I have heard stories of the epoxy lasting a few years and the knife then simply putting it . fall apart. i feel the nut at the end is a good way of helping this...

Base cabinets, island and counter tops

08-03-2010 10:28 PM by SteveC | 3 comments »

Phase 1 of my new kitchen completed. This is another in the endless list of projects I’ve embarked on since starting my new home construction back in 2007 with the focus on providing all the labor, or as close to it as possible. The kitchen has been a long time coming, a lot of time spent in designing, drawing models and finally arriving at what I think I want;) Construction materials: Base cabinet boxes: V.C. Pre-lacquered 5/8” sheet stock.Door/Drawer faces: Curly sugar ma...

Wood on wheels

12-21-2010 03:16 PM by Ilija | 3 comments »

This is a bike I’m making for my daughter, it still lacks the finishing touches, like final paint coat, and the lacquer. The seat and the wheels we bought, everything else is water resistant plywood, screws and birch wood. The body of the bike can be flipped up side down to achieve greater seat height. Following more pictures…

Blanket Chest #8: Charles Neil Answers!

12-04-2015 02:46 PM by HappyHowie | 3 comments »

I recalled how Charles Neil has stated that he “always” places finish on both sides of a board. That statement was very profound so I felt compelled to ask him if I should finish the inside of my blanket chest. Can’t hurt to ask, right? I wrote him late last night. He is two time zones ahead of me. He took time to answer little ol’ me. I had his written advice waiting for me to read early this morning. Here it is, all of it: —“I finish inside an...

"adirondack chair making" #1: my first adirondack chair was made in 1995, now two decades later, I am still at it

02-05-2014 10:37 AM by paperclip | 3 comments »

when I was a freshman in high school (1995), I won the end of the year award for woodshop when I produced an Adirondack Chair. Now 2014, I am still at it. I only get better and better at them. Now I am giving them some Texas, southwestern, rustic flare with a cut-out the shape of the state. I now make Adirondack chairs on a weekly basis mostly for therapy. But I sell them too. In post(s) to follow I will explain more about Adirondack chair making.

WWI Whirligigs

01-20-2010 01:41 AM by RicksWhirligigs | 3 comments »

Hey everyone!I have recently opened up a shop on Etsy.com to sell my wooden airplane whirligigs. I have so much fun making them, and love learning the history behind each model I build. I have recently moved into the business of selling them, as i cannot possibly fit anymore in my yard!!! You’ll find that the prices I have chosen are very low, just enough to keep the cost of supplies from getting my wifes attention! so check them out here:http://www.rickswhirligigs.etsy.comthanks!!!

Juniper Log Furniture : Floor Lamp #1: Wicked Floor Lamp, what ribbon like movement

03-06-2009 10:09 PM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 3 comments »

Nothing like having numerous projects to work on This lamp is very ribbon like; really flat but with lots of movement. It does have a small burl. The base will be cut down to size which will also shorten the lamp so that it is not so tall. We will scribe fit the lamp limb to fit the base. I have started sanding the limb and my husband has been working on the base.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1377: A Different Kind of Project

08-08-2014 11:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Yesterday I had mentioned that I was going to spend the day getting caught up on some paperwork. I did spend a couple of hours in the morning doing that, but as so often happens, later on in the day I got somewhat distracted and wound up spending the day doing an entirely different type of project. Such is life . . . I had mentioned a couple of weeks ago that Keith was in the process of building a new speaker/amplifier system for our home. While we already had a really awesome system tha...

More working with Pine #10: Getting close to the finish line....

06-07-2016 03:07 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, got the armrests done.. The square part didn’t ake all that long to chop out. The round hole? Forstner bit. So, when the armrest settles down over the tenon on the top of the front post, the post will get “housed” in the round hole….more places to add glue. I also chopped a mortise in each of the rear posts. Armrest would then slip into that mortise, and onto the tenon. I drilled a through hole through that rear post, in the center of the mor...
