Making a fireplace bellows

09-28-2016 11:09 AM by Jim Finn | 1 comment »

Instructions for making functioning and decorative fireplace bellows: Feb. 9, 2004 (Up-dated Sept. 2016) I have made well over sixty of these. I developed this process and pattern from a carved bellows I bought in Norway in 1984. The decorative inlay process is explained in another blog of mine. Wood can be any kind that you like to use. Needed is about 30 inches of 1×8. One half-inch thick wood will also work if you can find it. I have used Oak, Cedar, Pine, Waln...

Woodturning #1: David Marks Turns a 400 Pound Hollow Vessel!

08-04-2016 08:42 PM by CharlieK | 7 comments »

View on YouTube I met with David Marks while he was still in the early stages of his greatest woodturning project (yet!). He showed my the specialized lathe tools he uses for very large hollow vessel turnings and some of his woodturning tricks! He also explained his amazing methods for storing, drying and stabilizing wood for his wood turning projects. The scale of this woodturning project is amazing! The blank for this turning project weighed 400 pounds! Even the tools he use...

Free Wood #4: The Pew Report

05-14-2016 11:36 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

As mentioned previously in this series, I got possession of two old church pews that my church no longer needed. Today I disassembled them and cut the long pieces in half crosswise to fit them in my car. Because of the splits in the wood, I ended up with many 1×4’s and a few 1×6’s. One seat stayed intact, but it has a split. I’ll have to break it anyway to fit through my thickness planer. I cleaned the wood up, taking off any molding so that it would fit ...

iPhone passive amplifiers

04-28-2016 02:51 AM by Mike_D_S | 5 comments »

I saw a project posted the other day about a passive amplifier for your cell phone. I liked the idea and I’m always looking for small projects to use up the smaller scraps from other projects. It seems like I’ve got a constantly growing collection of boards that are too small to easily find a use for, but too big to feel good about getting rid of. So when I saw the passive amplifiers, I immediately thought about my growing scrap pile and my wife and two daughters who are cons...

Aurora Night Stand - Darrell Peart design #1: Aurora Night Stand

04-06-2016 02:58 AM by Mike_D_S | 9 comments »

I really love the Greene and Greene style (and more importantly, so does the LOML). I saw Darrell Peart’s Aurora Night Stand on LJ a while back and searched out the magazine article and saved it for later when I thought my skills might be up to it. I finally decided a few months ago to give it a try and picked up some Mahogany and a small ebony block. Here are a few pics of the in progress project and then a couple of shots of the table 99% done. I ran out of ebony, so I havenR...

MY "WHAT IF" PROTOTYPE BOX. #1: Lesons taught by my Master Mentor...."Murphy!"

04-01-2016 01:57 AM by DocSavage45 | 23 comments »

MY “WHAT IF” PROTOTYPE BOX. THE FINISHED BOX. If you are interested, I’m posting a blog on this box including the steps Murphy guided me through. LOL! What I’ve learned on Lumberjock’s says that a box is not a box. I’ve seen many wonderful and varied ”Art Boxes” on Lumberjock’s. My original excitement for this art form came from Andy who posted blogs on how to build his type of Art Box. The next inspirational artist is ”thesout...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #73: Scrapwood Challenge!

03-26-2016 04:01 PM by PhilBello | 5 comments »

This morning I started out with this mahogany scrap: From which I had decided to try and make two mallets, why I hadn’t made them before I don’t know, I have tried everywhere to buy one down here, they just don’t sell them, they use their hammer, so I had imported a beech one from Amazon, which including taxes cost me $34 / £24, twice the listed price. I started off by cutting the handles on the bandsaw, as this would determine the size of the holes in the heads. ...
