Building the Gramercy Carcass Saw Kit #1: The Build

12-05-2011 04:03 AM by doorslammer | 5 comments »

I recently purchased the Gramercy Carcass saw kit to add a nice crosscut saw to my till and if Chris Schwarz and Roy Underhill prefer it I thought I’d give it a try, but at $200 it’s a bit pricey. The kit however is a little more than half that and all that’s left to do is attach the brass spine and shape a handle. The kit comes with the saw plate sharp and ready to go, a bent brass back, a pair of split nut saw bolts and instructions with a scaled handle pattern. I chose...

A Great Antler Tip Writing Pen Tutorial To View

01-07-2008 03:58 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 6 comments »

In this wide world, you just never know how different things will connect us together. Throw in the mix a crazy internet full of stuff, and we more often “bump” into others with similar interests. I have used Shed deer and elk antlers to make a variety of things for several years now, and finding the sheds was my biggest problem. Once I had an antler, I could make something with it. But finding out where a “buck” would drop his prize is another problem entirely. ...

Arts & Crafts Mantle Clock #3: Ordering

11-06-2009 06:11 PM by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

I’m about to pull the trigger on my order from Klockit.com. I had a few questions about what to order, so I pinged their tech support. They don’t mention what size winding key to get. I’m assuming that it’s an eight-day movement, so that if you wind it every week, it’ll keep running. I grew up with clocks (i.e. grandfather, cuckoo, etc.), so I didn’t want a set that chimed. I think the pendulum length and swing will fit nicely with the design I’v...

planes, trains and vehicals? #7: world domination one tiny tank at a time

07-04-2012 07:25 PM by jacob34 | 3 comments »

After building these tanks, ships and planes for my father I decided they looked like something my nephews would enjoy and possibly my 11 year old although he is kinda getting old for that kinda of stuff, maybe for a shelf. Anyway I did not want to just build little tanks I wanted to make kits for the kids giving their dads some fun too hopefully. I decided to buy wheels at a store and haven’t done so as of yet so the kits are missing wheels. other than that they are complete. I have tw...

Cigar Pen in Gold with Rosewood

10-15-2007 07:56 PM by MarkWilk | 9 comments »

I have been turning pens for a few weeks and given a few as gifts around the office. The overall favorite remains the Cigar Pen, a Penn State staple, but also available from Augum’s Pen Works and other vendors.This Cigar Pen in 24 carat gold on very well figured Redwood stock is destined for the desk of a colleague who really liked my first Cigar Pen in chrome. He’s a Gold guy, though, so I just turned this one for his holiday gift. Though it’s a favorite of Penn State Ind, I bought ...

The Non-Electric Chair #10: Waiting for Beech To Dry

11-16-2008 05:23 PM by lethentymill | 2 comments »

Leaving the tool chest for a moment; we go back a few years to the Domesday Book and 1086 and an interesting fact – 13 saws were recorded in the kingdom, bowsaws were common at the time so what kind of saws were these? Probably not sawmills; mills are mentioned aplenty and millponds too but they were agricultural mills. These are probably pitsaws, a gruelling job for two men; one of them in the pit and the other steering the two-handed saw and balancing on the level tree-trunk as they r...

My Journey #4: More on the dollhouse

09-29-2010 04:31 PM by Trimble | 3 comments »

Well, a few more days have gone by, do I thought I’d post another entry here. Last time, I mentioned the dollhouse kit that I need to build for my daughter. It’s a nice little kit, but it comes with some very thin plywood that tears out every so easily when punching it out of it’s frame… I’ve spent much time popping out the pieces and sanding the edges. My wife bought some paint in the colors that we determined my daughter likes, but we still haven’...

52 Weeks #12: Vises and Crocodiles

03-28-2011 03:11 AM by clieb91 | 0 comments »

Well all it has been a rather long week; I have spent a large portion of it away from home due to some family issues. I was though able to finish up my Drill Press Pen Vise before leaving. I again looked at several different ideas on LumberJocks and other websites. I found Rod’s (from Appleton, WA) design on the International Pen Turners website and made a few adaptations to it. (My apologizes to Rod as I can not find the link right now to the website.) The main change I made was that ...

Almost ready for a dry fit. Got every thing mortised and tenons cut still have one more mortise to cut for the strechers on the legs and i’LL dry fit it. Still a lot of sanding and staining. I even have the strips of ebony cut last night. still have to cut into 1/4 in. lengths, but I think I’m gonna make them just a tad longer. I’m finding a lot of brown streaking in the ebony, is that normal? Just the type of ebony I have? Anyway I’m gonna have to dye with a dark mark...
