Keep on spoonin'! #1: Tracking down the landscapers for mesquite

03-06-2017 01:20 AM by RobNPHX | 0 comments »

I got into carving spoons a few months ago, and have been hooked ever since. It doesn’t help when you read Peter Follansbee’s blog, and you realize that the material to partake in the hobby is all around you. A few weeks ago, I was taking some cloths to the tailor. As I’m driving through the parking lot, my wife spotted some landscapers trimming some mesquite and says to me “looks like some good spoon wood!”. Excellent – encouragement from the spouse. I...

Build a Decorative Sled

11-26-2014 06:53 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

Making decorations is fun. Woodworking, welding, and smithing are also fun. This time I combine them all and create a decorative sled. This is a very simple project that will get plenty of years use. Check the video out, leave comments, and make sure to like and subscribe! Click here for video. Also, does anyone know where the old embed code went to? I can no longer see it on YouTube to embed the video here.

Got some scrap wood and a railroad spike? Make a drawknife....

06-04-2013 05:05 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 4 comments »

Drawknives. They can be expensive or cheap. They are used by green woodworkers and chairmakers (for the spindles). You can use them for taking bark off trees as well. With only a $1 railroad spike and some scrap lumber you can make your own drawknife. Also view a different way of placing handles on your homemade tools tangs. It must be noted that I do not condone taking railroad spikes off of tracks. It is illegal and you can get in serious trouble for theft and/or killed by a big freaking ...

I. H. Hart...Maker of things, fixer of stuff. #3: So close...yet so far away!!!

09-15-2012 01:48 PM by IsaacH | 1 comment »

So Ill start out by saying that I forgot to mention in my last post about the “payment” my father gave me for helping him remove the cabinets in his kitchen. A barely if ever used Delta Shopmaster bandsaw! Its not the 14” I used to have, but its a start!!! Not that I asked for or expected any form of payment. I think it was more of my dad getting things out of his way that he realizes he has no want for. He also offered me his Hitachi comp/mitre saw that fell off the saw hor...

Sectional Couch / Sofa #1: Design and tools

01-05-2012 09:10 PM by chris | 1 comment »

Well, let me start by saying this is my very first post. I love designing new furniture (Dressers, Couches, Tables, Cribs, Shelves, Beds, Etc.) and have found it a real joy building what I design. I unfortunately do not have any professional tools or many tools in fact, but I do what I can with what I have. Money doesn’t grow on trees… So, my objective is to try and help you and myself build fairly inexpensive furniture while still being good quality in appearance and st...

Life hands you a big lemon...

07-21-2011 06:15 PM by Transition | 6 comments »

Since it has been, and is predicted to be, hot as a kiln in the Northeast, I thought I might take advantage of it and dry some rough cut, green lumber. I sealed up the ends fairly well. Using it for a segmented bowl, so I’m not to worried if it checks a little. Good idea? Bad idea? We’ll see… And I also set out some mint tea to brew. My wife and son drink it straight. I prefer mine with a little sugar and Bourbon.

All American

06-10-2011 08:49 PM by Transition | 5 comments »

I have decide to turn only reclaimed, American woods. I’m doing this for several reasons:1) There are trees that we pass, and largely ignore, everyday. Turning this wood gives me a chance to reintroduce myself and others to to this amazing world. I love the outdoors, and I go hiking, exploring, and “wood hunting” with my son quite often. I want to be able to point to a tree and tell him what it is. But as I’ve started trying to identify the species of wood that I&...
