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

A TOTALLY NEW project idea....!!

08-31-2014 01:54 AM by TannerTurnings | 7 comments »

Over the past few days I’ve been working on an idea that I’ve NEVER seen or even heard of anyone making before. Therefore I am obviously having to work out methods & techniques “on the job”. It’s only a small item that I hope will sell well at some craft fairs & markets, and possibly on line sales too. I’m NOT going to reveal what this item is, until I have got it the way I want it, and have made a few ready to sell, BUT…I WILL reveal it on...

Greene inspired Night Stand #5: Progress

02-15-2008 08:00 AM by ChicoWoodnut | 5 comments »

I figured i would post a quick progress note. I have cut all the tenons for the case and fitted them. Here is a shot of the dry fit. I still need to lay in the dovetailed stretchers on the top. That will be tomorrow. I won’t bore anyone with making tenons. It’s coming along pretty well. I’ll be shaping cloud lifts by Saturday.

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #32: Christmas Present to myself!

12-01-2014 10:35 PM by PhilBello | 5 comments »

I decided that it was time to make something for me, and what better than a new Workbench, I have been making do, with the bench I made when living in an apartment, and had a micro workshop in a spare bedroom, now it was time for a man size bench. The pile of mahogany to the left of the saw horse leg is my bench (that on the right is still the Kiosko / Gazebo roof!) this arrived on the 19th. I then sorted the timber and cut the parts The planks on the left are the top at 2.5...

New Router Table #4: Adding the Base

09-04-2013 02:21 AM by jeffbranch | 4 comments »

Making a mortise with an old drill press. I have said before that an old rickety drill press is better than no drill press at all. In the photo above, I am using my Dad’s old Craftsman bench top drill press to do some deep mortising. This drill press shakes worse than a wet dog; it shakes so much I feel like I need to call someone to help me keep everything in place. I am doing some mild exaggeration here, but in the photo above I am using several clamps while drilling some mortises. Th...

Morris inspired chair #5: I couldn't resist.....dry fit seat and back

06-12-2007 05:58 AM by Bob Babcock | 10 comments »

I braved the mosquitoes to get some more done tonight. I think I lost a 1/2 pint of blood. Gotta get some repellant. You have to be brave at moments like this….splitting the tenon for the wedge. I think I’ll cut them on the bandsaw the next time I try something like this. I think it would give better consistancy. The pegs go in the back The dog thinks there’s a woodchuck under the shed. OK…here it is…I couldn’t resist…had to check some mea...

Knick-Knack Window Shelf #1: Knick-Knack Window Shelf Part 1

01-12-2008 04:15 AM by Critterman | 5 comments »

Hi all, been quiet on my own stuff lately mostly because I’ve been busy trying to figure out how I’m going to do this particular project. The project (as seen below) is a Knick-Knack shelf that resembles a window with a mirrored back. The only part keeping me puzzled it how I will do the curved front. Here is a pic of the sample I got off of Google: The original was painted/milk paint maybe, but I’m going for African Mahogany. Not sure how everything is going to w...

Just for Fun... #3: Hey, there's a box here!

09-07-2009 02:53 AM by littlecope | 9 comments »

These so called quick, knock off little jobs always seem to end up taking longer than expected! But Life and responsibilities call and can’t be ignored…and it’s all good, because the FUN is prolonged!!When we left this last, I had just marked the strips of Mahogany for the bottom panel.One night this week I took an hour and went ahead and cut them out and fitted them in the same manner as the top.I also marked and cut the top corners (sorry about the blurriness but this is a...

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 ...

Creating and Turning Salt and Peppermills

06-09-2010 07:02 PM by Bob Simmons | 8 comments »

How often have you dined at a restaurant and the waiter or waitress asked you “Would you would like some cracked peppers with your meal?” Probably more than once, right? If you’re like me I answer “Sure. I’d love some.” There’s just something nice about having a good meal with freshly ground salt and pepper. For a long time I have browsed through my various woodworking catalogs and noticed mechanisms for salt and peppermills. Then one day I decided to order the mechanisms and make a se...
