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!

On a happier note, i finnished all the 400 pieces of Honduras mahogany veneer for the table project.Today i will lay a test parquet to see if it gets tight enough.

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 | 10 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...

Lumber Extravaganza

I joined a number of woodworkers on Saturday in a pilgrimage to Midwest Woodworking in Cincinnati, Ohio this weekend. Midwest was a small family owned woodworking shop that created fine furnishings for their clients. With the passing of Frank David in the recent past and hard times in the market, sadly Midwest has closed its […] Continue reading HERE. Thanks for reading – keep making shavings! Dave

LOOKING FOR HELP #1: Need a replacement leg for my chaise lounge

08-19-2014 12:59 PM by JanKossen | 1 comment »

Dear AllAprox. 10 years ago, I purchased this chaise lounge, while living in Hong Kong, at a Maitland Smith Shop. Having moved around the world, I am now back in Switzerland…. and my poor chaise lounge has finally said “no more” to all the shipping it had to withstand. A leg has now broken – and its impossible to find anyone who can replicate the broken leg. I have received a letter from Mailtland smith, confirming that they cannot help me (no spare parts available)....
