I Got a Wood and Tool Gloat

1642 days ago by bhack | 19 comments »

A local cabinet shop is going out of business and is selling every thing. They also tried at one point to retail lumber but the local market was not there. So, today I picked up these lumber items:Mahogany – 8/4×5 1/2” x 10’Cherry – 4/4×11” x 9’Lacewood – (3) 4/4×5”x 6’Paduk – (2) 4/4×7” x 8’Curly Maple – 4/4×5” x 8’Makore – 6/4×1...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #5: Arched Candle Holder - On to New Heights

1661 days ago by sras | 3 comments »

It seems like the arched form needs to be lifted off the table by some amount. I’m not sure by how much. My technique in situations like this is choose from a range. Start with too little and keep adding until it seems like too much. Somehwere in between “too little” and “too much” there should be a “just right” or at least a “close enough”!In this case I start adding spacers underneath each end. Here is the range of heights. The wi...

Adirondack Chair & Table #1: Intro and Preparing the Back Slats

1662 days ago by jcontract | 7 comments »

I’ve always loved the Adironack Chair. Some of my fondest memories are sitting in one and relaxing with a cold drink, watching the sunset when it’s the perfect temperature, with just a hint of a soft breeze. So when a few years back when my wife and I bought our first house, we needed the perfect Adirondack chair for the backyard. One that was comfortable, but not too low to the ground. One that didn’t feel like you were too reclined. I looked high and low for the perfect...

Lumber Supply Resource In the Midwest

1673 days ago by Andy Brownell | 7 comments »

I recently came across a supply of lumber from a business here in Cincinnati, OH, Midwest Woodworking. It is owned by a second generation businessman, Frank David. The warehouse he has is probably well over 40,000 sq feet. Spread out across 2 floors are some of the longest complete boules of lumber I’ve ever seen in Sapele, Mahogany and Makore. He lets customers dig through some of the most amazing piles of lumber and pick your favorite boards. One board, or 1,000’s of bd/ft, ...

Oh For Keepsake!

1714 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 32 comments »

Its that time of year again: HOLIDAY PROJECT TIME! So this year, I decided to make a few little keepsake boxes, thanks to some advice from The Great WOODini. I also took inspiration from a box Nicole keeps on her nightstand and developed a new design that is much more practical for the average woodworker to make. The boxes feature a secret locking pin. Once removed, the lid slides off on a sliding dovetail. And as always with these holiday gift projects, you can modify them by trying diffe...

How to find and harvest legal burls!

1731 days ago by OregonBurls | 37 comments »

Hey everyone, It was suggested that I start a discussion on how to find and harvest burls. Please give your input also. I don’t deal with straight grain that often. I cut and sell burls for a living so here is what I know. It is illegal to harvest a burl without permission. of course if it is on your own property you can give yourself permission. What I do is put an ad on Craig’s list saying I want your burls. Most people don’t know what burls are. So you don’t get that many calls....

Beads Box #4: Mild Cutting, Doors part, Dadoes, and rabbets

1736 days ago by PurpLev | 12 comments »

I’ve had this project on the back burner (literally- it was standing in the back on the burner…) for a long time (just click on the “Previous blog entry” and you’ll see what I mean). and I think it’s due to the fact I have high expectations out of this project, that sometimes I feel are a bit over my capabilities and abilities at this day and age. But… I finally got some courage, and cut the carcass down so I can pick up on this project, and move o...

Desk rebuild #6: Finish Applied

1746 days ago by Ben | 5 comments »

So I now have my first experience with Waterlox finish, and am reasonably happy with the results. I brushed it on, but eventually gave up and shifted to a rag. It is a bit unforgiving with drips and streaks, but I think I fixed a few bad layers with some sandpaper. Only time will tell if it will be durable enough to protect from scratches. One question remains – what type of wood comprises this desk? This desk was once in the Swedish embassy (40-50 years ago), and had since been ...
