My try at timber framing. Made sketchup model. Found fallen logs in wood, took them out, made them square using chainsaw and axe. Then Lots of googling and learning later it all came together. View on YouTube

Home Made Woodworking Accents and Decorations #1: My First Mosaic Pin

11-18-2017 02:48 AM by Jerry | 18 comments »

After having recently paid $25.00 for a little 8” piece of mosaic pin that I used on my last box, I decided to start making my own. Here is my first one. It’s not epoxied up yet, but you can see the pattern pretty well. This piece is about a foot long and cost me about $10.00 to make.

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #4: Thoughts in SketchUp

11-12-2017 09:35 PM by Bluenote38 | 3 comments »

Temps dropped, cold in the shop so refocused to more indoor activities. Friday (November 10th), of course, was the U.S. Marine Corps 242nd Birthday – Semper Fi Brothers past, present, and future, and may we serve 300 more with honor. Did the Vets day thing too on Saturday served breakfast to a host of Korea and Vietnam Vets and some of the few remaining WWII Vets too. I have to say that I met a guy who was on the USN Nautilus. The first nuclear sub and the first to sail under the pola...

Roughing it out (Wooden Sword and White Sword)

11-10-2017 03:52 PM by NadarCreative | 2 comments »

I decided to try and make some wall art pieces based on the first Legend of Zelda game on the old NES. I grabbed some pine boards and printed out some large pixel art of the items as they appear in the game, roughing them out on the band saw and sanding them more accurately into shape. I also have both boomerangs and the blue potion to show soon. This should be a fun ride…

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #2: Well that didn't take long

11-06-2017 07:09 PM by Bluenote38 | 6 comments »

Of course not – I’ve been thinking about this for about 6 months. And like most have done a LOT of internet searches on “Tool Cabinets”; “Toolboxes”; “Tool Chests” (Yes I have the book); “Hanging Tool Cabinets”; “Tool Hanging”; “Tool Storage” and several more permutations. If you think I may have missed one let me know. There are hundreds of solutions, as many as there are Woodworkers, and so many great id...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #1: In the begining

11-06-2017 06:38 PM by Bluenote38 | 0 comments »

In the beginning chaos reigned. Yep, that about sums up my “shop”. Or to quote my wife: “What a mess”! Easily 50% of my time is spent searching for a tool or hardware I know I have and dancing around everything trying not to knock over wood piles or tools. I had a decent shop once but after several moves and life changes I’ve never been able to actually pull together another organized workspace. Now I’m staring at another move in 18 to 24 months and ...

Shop stuff #108: Pencil box in walnut and maple

11-02-2017 09:07 PM by JimDaddyO | 5 comments »

A rainy day today and finally some time to edit video. This is a small pencil box I made for my daughter in law who is going back to school to learn how to help people. My first grand child was born to her 6 months ago and I wanted to make her something that was a bit more common in my time, yet still practical now. View on YouTube

Tool Cabinets #1: Tool Cabinet Concept

10-30-2017 04:50 PM by glideking | 3 comments »

My first attempt at using Sketch up program for designing a piece. I am a bit slow on my first day but I think it will be a handy skill to add to my woodworking. This is still a rough draft. I have to confirm that my tools will fit. The cabinet must fit between two ceiling beams. I may leave the hinged doors as open frames with tools hanging on both sides. The cabinets behind the doors will be mounted to the wall independently and remain open without doors of their own.
