Hello friends, This time i want to show u how i made an arbour. I will try to show it in steps. It will be a lot of steps ;)In the beginning i had to made a project. I based just on a picture of completed work, so i had to project all of it (roof, floor, walls, connetions, ...). This was the first time for me to do such a things, and make it. I wasn’t easy to do. But with every day that passed, i gained a lot of new experience. The woods i used:- Fir wood- Pine wood- Larch wood- Oak ...
I found this article, the other day, and keep coming back to it—both literally and in my mind. Figured I’d share it. I plan to keep all of this in mind as I begin my 2nd night stand…. Maybe others have similar suggestions for increasing precision…. — How to get Precisionby Bob Smalser — Make a story stick for each project. Record the measurements of L, W, H and internals on one, unchanging stick. Your project stock should be kept on a...
My morning was taken up entirely by straightening out a snafu with my medical insurance co. and the doctor’s office. What a pain. Sometimes I wonder why I have health insurance. Anyway. . . When I did make it out to the shop, I had this cutoff piece of walnut left over from the leg vise chop that was perfect for the deadman. I’m not really done with it at this point, all I did was rip it and cut to length, cut a rabbet at the top and the V groove at the bottom. It fits right...
I have been reading other people’s posts on hand cut dovetails and I thought about it and realized that I have not actually hand cut a dovetail in a long time. For those that don’t know, I have been getting myself set up again for woodworking and it has been nearly 20 years since I had a workshop. Most of my time and effort has been getting tooled up again and I can say now that I have what I want to work with. The last phase of acquisition was getting saws. To start with, I g...
So, now I’ve got the bulk of the work done on the case. Where I left off in my last blog I had cut the sides and glued the top together. Now, I got the top down to the right size. This was a little tricky because I wanted to keep the joint pretty much right in the middle of the panel. Once it was to size it was time to route a cove along the edges so I could fit them into the slots I cut into the sides. I used a cove cutting bit that I filed the guide bearing post off of so I wil...
This coffee table base system is rather large, the top is elliptical shaped at 60” x 80”. Right now the base weights around 450 pounds, then when done carving should weight about 250 pounds. This Art Nouveau base took me a full ten hour day to draw in my cut lines by scaling off the 1/4” clay model. So now it’s fun time using grinders that have chain saw cutters and King Arthur Holey Galahad coarse grinding discs. I’m setting up a plastic tarp around one of...
This is a piece I plan to build over the next few months to use as a show piece in craft fairs and possibly to put in a gallery. I have lots of connections in the art world so hopefully I can find a home for it.
View the full blog with photos here! When someone, woodworkers and non-woodworkers alike, hear the term ‘dovetail’ they usually do not imagine a dove’s tail. The picture something similar to the photo on the right. Dovetails are generally either what can be called ‘half-blind’, or ‘through’. In the furniture my classmates, myself, and other artisans create, you can see this joint used very routinely. Drawers, especially, are a dovetail gold min...
Well, technically it’s not a cigar-box guitar because the (new) box was made for 3 small sample bottles of booze, Port to be precise. The name Amália has everything to do with a Portuguese Fado-guitar being the inspiration for this build. More detailed pictures on Triple Chaos
Hello all, Just wanted to touch base with you all and let you know that I am in NH taking another class with Mike Dunbar in beautiful snowy Hampton. I arrived from PA in the early evening yesterday after 60 degree weather only to wake up to a snowy morning. The funny part is that I loaded my road bike into my car in case I would get some riding in on the beautiful coast…not. We worked on the seat and the crest today and I believe we will be finishing the seat and legging up the chai...
