Life as an Amateur Woodworker #27: Pipe Clamps!

09-19-2014 02:12 AM by PhilBello | 2 comments »

Our second winter of the year is definitely here, just as warm, but plenty of storms! So the Kiosk roof is on hold now, probably until November, when we are back to summer again. In the mean time, all woodwork came to a halt a little over a week ago, with the arrival of a new family member, a four legged one, we wanted a companion for our schnauzer, so took on a rescue dog, that had been abused, the first three days we thought it was the biggest mistake we had made, he is only a small coll...

Woodworking Supplies and Resources near Osan AB, ROK

09-15-2014 05:34 AM by MilFlyer | 0 comments »

Woodworking Supplies and Resources near Osan AB, ROK I’m putting this post together for any other military or DOD woodworkers that end up getting stationed out here at Osan AB in South Korea so they have some idea of what’s out there (and not) for them.First, there is NO woodshop on Osan. The closest locations are Yongsan (1.5hr drive) and Kunsan (3.0hr+ drive). They are shutting down Yongsan and will be eventually moving the woodworking shop to Camp Humphreys, but the timeline right now i...

Totally NEW project....REVEILED!

09-11-2014 10:07 AM by TannerTurnings | 7 comments »

This project is what I call “THE PROPOSAL EGG” It’s a simple idea that, until last night I had never heard of anyone else ever making. It’s a SPINDLE TURNING project that involves making a hollowed out “EGG”, that becomes a “lidded box” (eventually the base part will have a small round “ring cushion” once my friend has made some or me, as round ring cushions just don’t seem to be available to buy in the UK) that a ring can be...

Education #4: Finally, the parquet is done.

09-10-2014 03:38 PM by CreekOne | 0 comments »

So after two weeks of work and experimenting I have finally finished the parquet. All the 120 pieces are dead square and equal in size, down to a error of .01mm.So we made a total of 1200 pieces and only about 360-400 was usable. Than the best work begun, laying the pieces and gluing edge to edge: So after about 4 hours of intense concentration I was done. And a close-up: Tomorrow I will glue this up on a fibre board with a back of Brazilian Rosewood; got to have a nice und...

Native American Indian Flute with an Australian twist #7: The Superfoot winning entry

09-05-2014 04:44 AM by icemanhank | 1 comment »

Hi everybody, Back in the initial entry to the making of my flute I talked about the competition that it was made for and in the last post I had photos of the entries (sadly all but one) and a picture of what we were given to work with. Here is the winning entry by David Stanley and I think you will agree it is a really wonderful piece. It is a clock, in the pictures it has no hands, and as per normal with David it is just so well carved. Also; David doesn’t use plans!

A TOTALLY NEW project idea....!!

08-31-2014 01:54 AM by TannerTurnings | 7 comments »

Over the past few days I’ve been working on an idea that I’ve NEVER seen or even heard of anyone making before. Therefore I am obviously having to work out methods & techniques “on the job”. It’s only a small item that I hope will sell well at some craft fairs & markets, and possibly on line sales too. I’m NOT going to reveal what this item is, until I have got it the way I want it, and have made a few ready to sell, BUT…I WILL reveal it on...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #25: Main Project on hold!

08-28-2014 02:10 PM by PhilBello | 3 comments »

It appears that our beloved President Santos has given us duff information, a couple of months ago, we were warned to expect El Niño, nine months of dry arrid weather, the last week has seen the return of the rainy season, and that is not just the odd shower, so I think our second winter of the year has arrived, which is not what I need at the moment. Unless the weather breaks and we have a decent spell, I am going to have to put the kiosko roof replacement on hold, I haven’t got suf...

Native American Indian Flute with an Australian twist #5: Finished

08-27-2014 09:25 AM by icemanhank | 8 comments »

Hi everybody, I have finished the flute now and I am very happy with how it has turned out. I was quite concerned about getting the finger holes correct and had some help from Charlie Mato-Toyela who spent about 90’ on the phone from the USA to Australia to help me get the pitch and the tuning correct, Charlie is a indeed wonderful person. His Youtube page is Blue Bear Flutes which I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who is contemplating making one of these lovely instrument...
