Burled Juniper Log Floor Lamp #2: Ready to drill holes

03-06-2009 09:56 PM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 6 comments »

I got the limb 100% sanded, my husband is inlaying turquoise in the base, next we will drill the holes for the cord. The dark spot you can see on the base is where we applied sanding sealer, there is a bit of rot so this helps harden the wood and it also keeps the glue from staining the wood when we inlay the turquoise.

Houndstooth Dovetails

11-30-2008 03:23 PM by Woodhacker | 27 comments »

Houndstooth dovetails use varying sizes of tails (or varying sizes of pins…depending on your perspective). I’ve wanted to try them for quite a while now. This blog shows most of the process I’m currently going through. To get the effect it seems to me you need more tails/pins per corner than one would normally think about. In this case like a few of my other recent boxes posted, I’m using Caribbean rosewood and curly maple. Most often, (when you see them at all) these are done by alte...

Quest for a unique cribbage board #3: Design almost done

11-04-2008 08:27 PM by Heyz | 2 comments »

Ok, I’ve scaled this thing down a little bit. I drew out the actual size I originally intended and decided it was WAY too big. So now the total length is about 18 inches. That makes the track 1” wide. That was a great coincidence by the way. Here’s the picture. I was inspired by a nice looking piece of wenge to make it from that. And I’m testing some white oak and maple today for steam bending. The inside will be a nice light colored wood with visible grain. ...

Radial Dovetail Box Construction

10-18-2008 11:15 PM by Woodhacker | 17 comments »

Some time ago I posted a blog about a dovetail joint I came up with. I call it the radial dovetail. It incorporates handcut dovetails, but rather than using the traditional 1:8 ratio for the dovetail angle for hardwood, each side of each tail varies and is drawn from a perspective point. Then the sides of the box were contoured to blend with the dovetail design. Here’s a picture of the nearly completed box. It is made of curly maple, Carribean rosewood, and hickory.I like to think of t...

Quest for a unique cribbage board #1: Design and construction technique - Advice?

10-11-2008 04:21 AM by Heyz | 5 comments »

I’ve got an idea to build my dad a cribbage board for Christmas. What’s going to make it unique is that I’d like to inlay the tracks with three separate species of wood into a nice maple base. So now the question is, how difficult will this be? I’d like the grain to follow the track, and so will need to bend the wood to follow the contour of the track – I’d prefer this over cutting the track shape out from a solid piece. I have a little bit of exp...

Pics and more pics!

09-29-2008 03:49 AM by TheKingInYellow | 4 comments »

As promised, pictures! I’ll warn you now, I take a lot of them :D First of all, here I am in my ‘shop’, and I use that term loosely! You can see basically all the equipment I have: Ridgid saw, Ryobi SCMS and Drill Press and a Mastercraft (Canadian Tire special) Router and Router Table. I’m pretty happy with all the equipment, but the router and table are pretty cheap. They’ll do for now. So the first big part of this project was the resawing of t...

Conference Table for Local Church #12: Cross Inlay Done!

09-26-2008 04:03 AM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 5 comments »

Alrighty then! The Cross inlay is done! My theory on flipping the template to cut the inlay piece worked. Here are the photos of the process…. With the template clamped in place, I cut the female part of the inlay with a Delta Inlay kit. I cut the outside of the area with the 1/8 inch bit in the kit and used a 3/8 inch bit with a 1 inch bushing to finish cutting the waste. I did cut the outside deeper. I did this to make sure the inlay would lay flat in the space. I did flip th...

Conference Table for Local Church #10: Breadboards on, Skirt on. Ready to Inlay.

09-22-2008 04:40 AM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 2 comments »

Sorry to be so long in adding to the blog on this project. Down South has been hit by tropical storm after tropical storm. Now up here in Northeastern Mississippi, we have had only rain but the coast, New Orleans, and Houston have been pounded. Our prayers are with you all!!! When I left you last, I was preparing (down South we say, “fixin”) to work on the breadboards on the big table. Well, I have attached them, and attached the breadboards to the smaller tables also. I have m...

A Hepplewhite style Federal game table in six days, PIX.

09-18-2008 02:49 AM by John Fry | 13 comments »

A while back I posted a project that I did in my shop in California with my woodworking friend Jack Hutchison from Houston, TX. Here is that post: A Krenov Inspired Cabinet on Stand in Six Days We completed that cabinet during a six day visit by Jack. Our agreement was that at some future date, I would go to Houston and we’d do another six day project in his shop. So….I arrived at Jack’s and we completed a much more complicated piece in another six day time frame and here it is………....
