06-28-2014 08:34 PM by Jeff Waggoner | 2 comments »

This is Jalen’s interview on The Highland Woodworker. His interview starts at the 19:20 mark. I need to make one disclaimer. Jalen was not on the cover of Fine Woodworking. That image was a gift they made for him as a souvenir when we toured their office last summer. You can see more about his projects here.

Fully Off Axis Stem Goblet (work in progress)

10-20-2014 08:06 PM by TannerTurnings | 5 comments »

Here’s a little idea I had last night, & decided to work out a way I could do it. It’s a Fully Off Axis Stemmed Goblet, where the whole of the stem is a half inch (13mm) off set from the cup & the base. To do this, I roughed to round, formed the cup, hollowed out (leaving the walls rather thicker than usual) & finished the inside & outside of the cup. (I should have also finished the shoulder of the stem section too…I’ll know for next time!) I then ...

Machinist Toolcart #2: Measure twice, Cut Once, then measure twice again, and cut once more.

06-20-2011 04:14 PM by PurpLev | 12 comments »

Its been a while since the previous post mostly because I wasn’t sure I was happy with the original design. I went to the local lumber supplier that carries mahogany plywood and bought the 3/4” material for the carcass and baking. While there I had them cut the 1/2 full sheet to 2 halves (2 quarter sheets) so it’ll be easier for me to transport with my car (don’t have a large truck anymore). With the 2 pieces now sitting in the garage, the original design seemed ...

Machinist Toolcart #7: a Trim and a Shave

07-20-2011 04:11 PM by PurpLev | 5 comments »

Now that the construction of the carcass was finished (as far as I can think) it was time to trim off the excess of the face frames (front was already done, and just had to do the back). I trimmed off the back as I got home from work. I used a block plane for that and brought the carcass into the house to continue working on it later at night when I get more time: can still see the burn marks from the TS. Nothing that a good shave/scrape wouldn’t clean right off: Later at ...

Hi, Just read about this mobile woodshop. I think this is a great idea to keep kids engage and keep interest in the trade alive in the younger generation.

Machinist Toolcart #13: Finishing Touch

09-16-2011 03:39 AM by PurpLev | 3 comments »

After realigning the drawers by fixing the slides, and trimming some drawers, I made sure everything fits. I predrilled 3 holes in the drawer fronts through the pull slots that will later be covered, one in the center, and 1 on each side: I transferred the center hole from the drawer front to the drawer and once alignment was satisfactory I transfered the other 2 holes as well: I used my combination square ruler to space the fronts from each other, and made sure that all the dra...

Handmade Portraits #2: Handmade Portraits: Armor Guitars

09-26-2008 07:52 PM by Etsy | 3 comments »

James Peters enjoys what he does. Waking up every morning and working in his woodshop in the back of his house is the “bees knees” as James says.   Once there, he makes custom acoustic guitars. He is, as it’s called, a luthier based in Springfield, TN. After moving to Nashville in 1989 and having some success in the country music songwriting industry, a friend asked James to repair his guitar. It was after that experience that he realized it would be easier &mdas...

Thank You Card #3: The Grand Finale (A finish that really makes this mahogany POP!)

04-29-2008 03:24 AM by teenagewoodworker | 11 comments »

So now its time for the grand finale, a finish that really brings this piece to life. through some test piece and some inspiration (thanks to this woodworker) I began to dye some piece with some general finishes dyes. When i first put the Vintage Cherry Water based Dye Stain on the mahogany i knew i had a winner. It might be hard to see in these pictures but it really brings out the beauty in Mahogany. So the first step (after much sanding) is to apply a coat of the Vintage Cherry. I also ...

Machinist Toolbox #8: Not Yet Finished, but It's Finished

12-25-2010 06:36 AM by PurpLev | 21 comments »

I mentioned it in the previous post and as I was working on the drawers I had the main carcass take the finish to make use of time. Mahogany much like Oak has large open pores. My finishing goal was more for practice than necessity, but I was aiming for an antique polished look – shiny outside. I knew I would have to fill in those pores if I want an even polished surface. So my plan was to start with a filler coat which I tried to concoct using dewaxed shellac and mahogany sanding sa...

Making a TV stand

08-05-2011 12:57 AM by Angela | 0 comments »

Design I’ll be posting most of the in-depth instructions and photos on my website WoodWorkersWebsite.com but I also wanted to mention a few things here regarding what I’ve learned while making this project. It’s the second indoor project, the first was a clock. I spend most of my time practicing my woodworking skills by making things for my garage. I designed this project myself which makes it very different from following a plan. I’ve designed almost everythin...
