Rustic Furniture #1: Four Yrs in The Making

335 days ago by Izzy Swan | 6 comments »

Doing this thing on YouTube where I have been sharing ideas and jigs that I build to (I hope) inspire people to thinking out side of the realm of traditional craftsmanship and maybe try something new.. any way the link below is to a slide show of a few off the pieces I have ...

New Router Table #2: Making Progress and Making Mistakes

335 days ago by jeffbranch | 0 comments »

The goal with this entry– create the case face frame (shown in blue) and… …build the back, then put the case together. I find woodworking to be a humbling hobby. I have been working with wood for about 30 years and while I don’t consider myself an expert, I think by now I should know enough to keep from making silly mistakes. But, as I have made progress on my new router table several mistakes have surfaced; two of them being significant ones. I thought about listing them in this blo...

New Router Table #1: Getting Started

338 days ago by jeffbranch | 1 comment »

This is a project I built a few months ago. It is a new router table which replaced the antiquated one I had been using – a much needed upgrade for my shop. When I think back to the day I received my first router table, I have to smile because I got it shortly after we moved into our current home – that makes it about 25 years old. I saw it in a Highland Woodworking catalog (then called Highland Hardware) and immediately knew I had to have it; you will see a photo of it below. But t...

Carving Green Wood #1: How much will green carving wood move?

349 days ago by Tom Pritchard | 2 comments »

I have been carving for sometime and lately I have been carving some walking sticks. The material I use is fallen sticks found in the forest. The stick is still green, but I still carve. A friend of mine asked me by using a green wood, would the wood warp and crack? I said, well I’m not sure. To me it’s ok if it warps some because it’s only stick. The twisting and warping may improve the looks. Can anyone else share there thoughts about carving green wood and what you might ...

Build a Steam Box

360 days ago 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...
