This is my experiment incorporating Laser Engraving and Decoupaging in wooden surface. Arts & Crafts – DIY – ShuheiFujikura: Laser Engraving Logo / Decoupaging http://maker.shuheifujikura.com/2015/06/laser-engraving-logo-decoupaging.html
Stumbled across this interesting and informative little wooden mechanical marvel today and thought it would make a nice handwork practice piece for the coming Winter. Nights are long and Winter longer here in Scandinavia. The project is sourced from https://woodgears.ca/combolock/index.html and plans are available for purchse there. A reader made a wooden ‘safe’ to go along with the lock: https://woodgears.ca/combolock/ramsay.html View on YouTube
This is where I will collect the projects i find that interest me. I may or may not get to actually making them, but since I am starting from the beginning, I hope that, over time, this will grow into an interesting, educational, and useful collection of projects for the aspiring woodworker.
This is my first try at this blog thing so any advice is welcome. I’m sorry for the lack of pics but I thought of posting this after I cut the file. Anyway, I needed a wide chisel and I had a file that was oversized so I chopped it up and started grinding away…. This is the part that I will use on this project. After I had cut it, I thought that I should have measured so that the finished product would span a 2×4. So if you do this, remember to measure…. This i...

I recently found a bunch of these guys in a stack of rough cherry and Walnut lumber.
PVC Pipe Stool with some woodworking. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UM82xM8cwf4 Even though my Youtube channel is known as ‘Wacky Wood Works’ the first line on my about page reads, “Making simple projects with wood, plastic, metal, fabric, cardboard & anything else. Simply making stuff. Most projects are made purely off the cuff and only have a general idea how it will turn out.” So basically just generally making stuff. Although wood will be my most co...
Warning: pic heavy Just posting a bunch of progress. Leg vise continued. Cutting the bridal joint. Lignum vitae pin for the guide. This stuff strong. Trying to incorporate this as a pin holder but haven’t come across an idea that I can pull off with what I have on hand. So it’s on the back burner for now. Hammered a poplar dowel and drilled a center so I could bore it with a forstner. Didn’t work out so well. Stuck a roll pin...
For those interested or can understand the science behind ramp walking toys, found this: Click on the image to download a PDF copy – links to a new page. This refers to the kind that rock from side to side, as the walking robot types. Trying to read this as a strange hypnotic effect on me – puts me to sleep zzzzzz…. My simple solution is to simply put the axis of rotation above the center of mass. Fortunately I have access to a CAD program allows me to pin...
For anyone interested in ramp walking toys, here is a link to a youtube video: https://youtu.be/WOPED7I5Lac featuring Tad (not Ted) McGeer back in the 1980s with a very impressive model. Also if you google tad mcgeer passive dynamic walking find a lot more. Be warned – your life will never be the same again.
