• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #13: It Is Finished

05-11-2017 11:27 PM by Ron Aylor | 17 comments »

It Is Finished –  Over the last few weeks shop time has been a rare commodity, due to dark, gloomy weather; yet, after a most enjoyable outing with my bride in the rain … I managed to procure hinges and a lock. Eventually, the rain stopped and the clouds parted to let the sun shine through. So, it was back to the shop to wrap my brain around putting the desk together. After a cup of hot tea, and an hour or so of chopping …  ... and wedging …  ... then chopping and wed...

Making an Oven Push Pull Stick

05-11-2017 09:16 PM by FourOaks | 4 comments »

Here is my first YouTube video showing you how to make an oven push pull stick. I’ve used hickory, Ipe, and Honduran Mahogany to make these. In the video, I show step-by-step how to make a mahogany stick. These are fairly straight forward to make and the design ideas are endless. I’m open to feedback on how I can make these videos better. Still learning my way around the camera. View on YouTube

ATTN OKLAHOMA WOODWORKERS!!

05-10-2017 02:49 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...

Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #10: Gluing Up and Pattern Routing the Table Halves

05-01-2017 01:20 AM by TungOil | 6 comments »

With my four leaves glued up it is time to move to the elliptical table halves. Each half consists of seven boards and is 35” wide. With so many glue joints to align I break the glue up into two parts. First I glue up four boards, and after that assembly is dry I add the remaining three adjacent boards to complete one half of the table top. A little cleanup with a belt sander levels the glue joints, then I switch to the ROS with an 80 grit disk to clean up the belt sande...

If you prefer not to read the video is herehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwLDBA1nQIo So we are now at the most annoying part of this entire restoration and that’s the bridge plate. Here’s a picture so you can get an idea of what and where the bridge plate is. It’s the small overlaid piece of wood A guitar’s bridge plate does quite a few very important jobs for the guitar. To make it simple, the pull of the strings on the top of the guitar is quite intens...

Shopmade Luthier Tools #20: Neck Clamps for Violin, Cello, etc...

04-03-2017 05:09 PM by Dave Rutan | 5 comments »

There are at least two instruments in the shop that need necks reattached. I was shown how to do this when the entire neck is detached, but two cellos are broken at the joint and the method shown me might not work so well. Google to the rescue! I found photos of commercially available models, selling for multiple tens of dollars, and decided I could make my own. I used some of the mahogany at my disposal, some 3/8 in. threaded rod, and some sheet cork I was given a few years ago. ...

A pattern for an MG manifold #1: A wood master pattern and the production tool that will make the casting

04-01-2017 02:25 PM by Patternguy | 7 comments »

Old motor-heads out there might get a kick out of these images. They show a master pattern under construction, and the fascinating thing is that it is being made out of WOOD!!! Yea..old school stuff. (actually it’s only 14 years ago:( The pattern is for a 4 cylinder MG manifold. Unfortunately, no hand carved mahogany core box to go with it though, the box was CNC cut out of aluminum. This picture below shows the match plate that was made with the master pattern....

I Actually Tested YOUR Table Saw Suggestions! I thought is was Interesting...

03-29-2017 06:40 PM by CharlieK | 10 comments »

View on YouTube Try this link if video doesn't work I did a video last week about ripping wood that has tension in it. I said that my preferred way to handle it is to walk away from the table saw and use a band saw. WELL! I got a LOT of feedback and suggestions about other ways to deal with that. So, I decided that I would actually test a few of these methods. Since I made this video I got an additional suggestion and that is to use a dado blade, but I haven’t tested that ...

The wood pattern to mold a very special set of bronze rings #1: The rings were made to lift an Ark

03-26-2017 09:29 PM by Patternguy | 2 comments »

My garage is yielding all kinds of forgotten projects and reminders of the stuff I’ve made. The following images show the pattern I made and mounted on a squeeze board in order to cast a special set of bronze rings. The fact is, this a really small story…but, it is part of another story, which is part of a bigger story, which is part of an even bigger story, and so on…until we get to a REALLY BIG story, one held as truth by a particular religious faith. All I can say ...
