Project Instructions #1: Jewelry Dishes - Instructions for a Great Gift Item

12-29-2010 03:26 AM by Peter Oxley | 2 comments »

I made several of these for Christmas gifts this year. They aren’t difficult, and they seemed to be well received. They use a fairly small amount of material, so they may be the perfect project for that pretty little chunk of wood you just can’t throw away. Start with ¾” material. The blank for the dish is about 3” diameter, and the post is ¾” wide by about 3-4” long. Put the post blank on the lathe and use a roughing gouge to turn it round. Now...

Bottle Holder progress

03-23-2012 05:49 PM by Chuck | 1 comment »

Last weekend I got 2 coats of linseed oil applied to the bottle holder and last night I got 3 coats of shellac applied. Tomorrow I will give it a light sanding and then 2 more coats of shellac. I like this picture because it shows how much color and warmth the oil added to the hickory.

Karate belt display #3: The Angle of the Dangle

02-06-2010 07:29 PM by WoodshopJoe | 1 comment »

Well it was now time to start making some sawdust, hopefully something would come of it in the end. I started by selecting a board that was about 7” wide to allow for a 4 1/4” and a 2 3/8” rip. Then starting at the beginning of the plan I transferred the board lengths to the piece and cut them to length allowing for an extra inch for adjustment. For the shorter pieces, I left them attached to a longer piece until I cut the dado slot to receive the inset. I numbered all...

Hi everyone. I first off want to say I am sorry it took so long to get back here. Between Facebook, Google plus and Youtube and my website http://www.asimpledesignofocala.com .

The Hickory Chest featured Raised Panel construction and the chest was lined with cedar. This project started when a client asked me to build a blanket chest for...

Mjolnir (part 2)

10-24-2012 01:33 AM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

To see the pictures, please click here. After finishing up the leg vise yesterday, I had a little bit of time leftover and decided to get cracking on Mjolnir (yeah, it thinks a lot of itself!). I finalized the design and drew it on the handle. It has the typical laminated mallet shape, tapered inside the head to lock the handle in place. I decided ti add a little detail to the handle and a pommel. Totally not necessary but I’m having fun now. I started to cut the handle free...

Karate belt display #4: Working out the Kinks

02-15-2010 02:04 AM by WoodshopJoe | 0 comments »

Since this was going to be 32+ feet long I needed to build it in at least three sections in order to handle and transport it to the karate school. In order to maintain alignment in the shop and then at time of installation, I built in two joints that slide together using a plate of hickory wood with dovetailed edges like this one. Essentially it’s an over sized dovetail joint that uses friction to hold itself in place. The hickory piece was made to snugly fit into the first dovetail s...
