Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface (workbench) #22: Almost Finished!

03-27-2015 12:59 AM by ruddhess | 0 comments »

This is what it looks like all put together. Still have to do a bit of flattening to the top side. It started out almost perfectly flat. But a couple three boards had warped so there were a couple of low spots. I’ve removed about 1/4” so far, leaving only two spots untouched by the planer – one about three or four square inches and another just a bit bigger. I’ve been taking several 45° angle passes across the entire surface.

Cedar Gate Handle #1: Cedar Gate handle - Start to Finish

03-17-2013 05:29 PM by twobyfour16 | 0 comments »

So, I recently built a new cedar gate & needed some handles. I didn’t want to go out & buy some, so decided to make my own. Inspired by “” CaptainAhab’s handles, I ended up with:Here’s how I built them:Starting with a lamination of 3 pieces of clear Cedar which I planed down to about 2 1/8” thick:Obviously, I made a little template for the top curves out of 1/4” plywood & cut the top curve with the ban...

Craig's List find - Free Lumber! Pick it up at the curb...

08-24-2012 08:40 PM by HalDougherty | 18 comments »

I found a posting in the ‘Free’ section of Craig’s List for some scrap wood piled up next to the curb. It was on a street just a few streets over from where I live. So… I ran over and this is what I found on the curb… And here’s more of it loaded in my truck… And a closeup of the mesquite… Here’s a closeup of the maple burl I found in the pile… It’s the best Craig’s List score I’ve ever ...

My First Workbench #1: Day 1

08-10-2012 01:33 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

After debating with myself for the past 6 months or so, I finallly decided on a design and got the nod from my CFO to go buy the lumber (it helps that my local Menards had a sale on everything in the store, including lumber). I won’t go into all the details and back story on the blog here, I’ll reserve that for my full up woodworking blog over at: Feel free to visit that site for all the details, more photos, my thoughts, etc. I will endeavor ...

Laminated Walnut Bowl #1: Starting a new bowl

07-19-2012 01:25 PM by kweinert | 3 comments »

A few weeks ago Michael Mode did a demo for some members of the Front Range Woodturners here in Denver. His demo was good enough that I thought I might be able to do that and I gave it a try. It was a 5 layer bowl out of some mystery wood and it turned out OK. I thought it was a bit rough and that I depended entirely too much on my 60 and 80 grit turning tools to finish it off. So I thought I’d try a second one. This one is out of a nice piece of walnut. I got it all glued up and...

Woodwhisperer Poker Chip Tray #4: Sanding, Sanding and more Sanding....did I mention Sanding?

08-14-2008 09:37 PM by Brad_Nailor | 13 comments »

OK, let me apologize right up front…I didn’t take any pictures of the next few operations..they were really basic stuff, and I was so focused on completing them I just didn’t think to grab the camera. I last left you when all the trays were glued up and ready for routing. First I did some preliminary sanding of the ends. I clamped the top and bottoms together and installed the belt on my Rigid drum sander. I clamped a temporary straight edge perpendicular to the belt to keep...

Woodwhisperer Poker Chip Tray #3: Making progress...and lots of chips!

07-19-2008 06:20 AM by Brad_Nailor | 11 comments »

Ok, after a brief side track, here we go again with the poker chip tray saga.. Where I last left you, I had gotten all the strips glued up into blanks. I had to wait about a week or so, to take a day off and pay a visit to my old boss and his wonderful wide belt sander. Sorry but I didn’t take any pictures of the process but it went something like this… The trays were only 10” long, and you cant put anything through the sander thats smaller than 16”, so I butted eac...
