building a bench and stuff #5: The home stretch

06-12-2015 05:25 AM by TheFridge | 2 comments »

Warning: pic heavy Just posting a bunch of progress. Leg vise continued. Cutting the bridal joint. Lignum vitae pin for the guide. This stuff strong. Trying to incorporate this as a pin holder but haven’t come across an idea that I can pull off with what I have on hand. So it’s on the back burner for now. Hammered a poplar dowel and drilled a center so I could bore it with a forstner. Didn’t work out so well. Stuck a roll pin...

Gamble House Rocking Chair #1: From Rough Wood to Looking Like a Rocker

06-03-2015 06:15 PM by Matthew Morris | 2 comments »

For years I’ve wanted to build the Gamble House Living Room’s Rocking Chair. I was lucky enough to be able to visit the Gamble House and get an up-close-and-personal view of the rocker as part of my research. Since the beginning of this year I’ve been working on the sketchup plans and testing out various templates to see if the shapes I’ve come up with are in proportion and true to the original chair. I start this project in mid May and created a Playlist of all ...

Chevalet de Marqueterie #2: Small Beginnings

05-17-2015 08:50 AM by TobiasZA | 9 comments »

As my “Honey-Do” and client projects wind down a little before it really gets cold here in Swellendam, I have at last made a start on my build. A few weeks of regular scrounging at my local tip has yielded some good lumber and adding this to my off cut stack, I think that I have enough lumber to do the job. Buying the hardware kit and plans from ASFM at $500.00 means I would have been into about ZAR6,500.00 before I even made a start. So…..enter “Shipwright” w...

What To Do With This Board? #1: What To Do With This Board?

05-08-2015 12:07 AM by Mean_Dean | 7 comments »

Hey Guys, My neighbor very generously gave me this board: It is Luan mahogany, and is: 3/4” x 3 1/2” x 48” (T x W x L) So, what project should I do with it? Based on your suggestions, I’ll then build the project, and blog the build. Thanks in advance, and I’m looking forward to it!

Art Nouveau Coffee Table #5: "Grind & Sand and Grind & Sand"

04-05-2015 10:51 PM by Dennis Zongker | 15 comments »

Removing approximately 200 pounds of solid African Mahogany was pain staking. Setting up a plastic tent and wearing enough face and body gear to cure Ebola. lol When starting out it took four men to move the base and now two men can move this coffee table base. One of the dumb things that I did was take off the guard to one of my grinders so that I could get into the concave section of the lower legs. Then I hit a snag and the grinder pulled me in and grounded up a couple of my fingers, ma...

Art Nouveau Coffee Table #4: Carving with Grinders

03-29-2015 09:33 PM by Dennis Zongker | 17 comments »

Here is a short Video link at Youtube where I’m carving the base with grinders. This is the beginning steps for smoothing and balancing the proportions of the table base. After this step I will start the sanding, I’ve been grinding away for around 80 hours so far. A lot more muscle work that I wasn’t expecting, but than again nothing in woodworking ever goes exactly as planed. lol Thank you for looking! View on YouTube

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1515: FLOWERS!!!!

03-12-2015 11:34 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Today I am revealing the fourth and final new trinket box pattern that I created over the weekend. I was really pleased with all the kind reponses that I have received regarding them. It feels good to make something that people seem to like so much. I spent the day yesterday writing up the pattern packets for these projects. I tried to include some step-by-step photos so that even newer scrollers would be able to make the projects successfully. Actually they aren't that difficult at ...
