In this video, I build a home made marking gauge from scrap wood. https://youtu.be/m5ehhwZaghU
Now to begin with, this is not woodworking, but does have to do with furniture. I have had many woodworkers that have been curious about blacksmithing and what i do and how I got into it. I never post my smithing projects here just because it is a woodworking forum. However, I feel like a lot of woodworker could create their own drawer pulls out of metal in their shops. You can use a coffee can forge and a vise really. Check out the video and see how easy it is and create your own hardware fo...
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.
I have been looking at getting a router plane for some time now. Ebay has great deals, but if you know me you know I like making my own tools. In this video I make my own router plane using a piece of oak pallet, a thumbscrew, wing nut, and an old cheap hex wrench. I opted out of installing handles on this (like most do that are this version) because i liked the feel. I could use my hole hand instead of holding onto some knobs. Hope you enjoy and view the video HERE!
Made some progress on the tank. Adding wheels and gluing the turret. Yes it rotates. Since I am painting this for my customer I can use up some of the scrap wood I have laying around. I hope to get the trailer done today as well since the Packer game is on this evening.
Finally got my website up!! byronconn.com My friend Matt Olpinski made it for me, working with him has been incredible and he is extremely talented at what he does. Thanks Matt
I’ve mentioned him a lot in my posts so far, and luckily I was able to learn from him this past quarter as an intern professor. Richard Newman is incredibly brilliant and talented but unfortunately has given up on making furniture. Now he makes banjos, probably the most well made you can buy. He had a great run of making some of the most complicated, intricate, and precise furniture of his time. I could ramble on and on but here are pictures of some of his work. The centerpi...
So heres the finished thing. You can see it open in the pictures on the bottom. Better pictures soon to come. The drawers are an important part of my design because of my mother. When I was younger she taught my older brother and myself how to play canasta, and always had two nice decks of cards to play, unfortunately we were not the cleanest while playing and the cards almost always got ruined. Eventually she started to hide the cards. It came to the point where she would burry the c...
So here it is, the final glue up. I over clamped to be safe, not in the sense of clamping pressure but as far as where I was clamping. This glue up entailed gluing all 4 sets of tails and pins with the mitered front (all the same piece) of the carcass as well as gluing in the center of the floating panel. By glueing the center of the panel I control the movement of expansion and contraction to both edges, ensuring the gaps always stay very close to the same, also keeping them as smal...
While not particularly woodworking, he uses wood in many of his jigs and clamps and presses. Too, he calls his operation “Quercus Press,” and Quercus, as we all know is the genus of the oak trees. It looks like the covers are glued over white oak boards as well. Moreover, though, this video is simply a maker’s dream. From the old linotype machine whirring and clanking away to line up type as he presses keys, to the vaults of old engravings he gained access to, to the many cl...
