Build a Steam Box

07-27-2013 11:41 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 8 comments »

Recently I purchased a Steam Bending Kit from Rockler Woodworking and Hardware so I could try out some Steam Bending. Bending wood is something I have never tried before and is out of my comfort zone. I wanted to dive into this area of woodworking and challenge myself as well as learn something new. So of the various forms of wood bending (Laminated Bending, Milled Bending, Steam Bending) I chose steam bending to be my first attempt. The kit I purchased included the reservoir, hose, and so...

Requiring only 2 boards to build and a limited amount of tools, this project can be made in a day or a weekend. the design can be modified by building more cubes or changing the orientation of the unit itself.

Dining Table and Chairs, Griffin Style Legs. #3: Carving the Lion face and wing scrolls

06-11-2013 03:00 PM by Dennis Zongker | 24 comments »

For the face of this lion my goals are to make him more majestic by carving it closer to the traditional lion’s face verses the last three I made five years ago for the “Griffin End Table.” The lion faces for that end table had more of an Egyptian style to the face. By just making a few small adjustments can really make a big difference in the way the face can change. I altered the size of the eyes and located them outward approximately ¼-in. The main distinction is making the snout larger...

I also used a handle from another project because I liked the style more. Here is the general idea: Here are the general steps for this session: 1. Made the base from mahogany using miter joints2. Made handle from mahogany us...
