Just for Fun... #39: Of Hasps and Pins...

11-25-2010 02:23 AM by littlecope | 17 comments »

The second requirement of this “Suggestion” Box, was that it be locking. To that end, I began cutting out a hasp, starting with the loop through which the lock will pass…It’s a good thing these are small parts!! My scraps of Mahogany are getting awfully small… It took about 20 minutes of musing, and about 5 minutes of cutting to get here…Since this box already has “Ears”, I’ve been referring to this as the “Nose”... Next came t...

Just for Fun... #38: A Few Details...

11-23-2010 03:10 AM by littlecope | 14 comments »

What with working all weekend, I didn’t get more than a few hours to work on the suggestion box. But I did manage to get a few important details out of the way…The first, was one that I approached with the most trepidation, the cutting of the slot. I wanted it to be slightly tapered from outside to inside… so I tilted the table of the scroll saw and made the two cuts… from the bottom side…It worked out just fine and the sample card fits with room to spare…T...

Adirondack Chair #4: Progress; Compass Rose Started

12-09-2013 02:38 AM by Scott R. Turner | 0 comments »

I got less time in the workshop than I would have liked today—trivial life things like putting up the Christmas tree and watching Kansas City annihilate the Redskins (sob!) kept interfering. Still I got time in to work on a few things. I got the second set of slats steamed and bent. The first set came out of the steamer with some mysterious stains. I’m not sure why, but I read somewhere on the Internets that the minerals in tap water can sometimes stain. So for this set I use...

mahogony/ironwood writing desk #1: my writing desk

09-01-2009 07:44 AM by Jeremy Hill | 12 comments »

Can I put pics in the blog? I’d like to share my project with you guys, but it would be better if you can see it. Let me know please.We were given an overflowing truckload of scrap hardwood a fellow woodworker who was moving to south america. A lot of it was t and g floor cut offs and most of the ironwood planks were stained half way down the length and most all of it was stock rejected due to imperfections. So I thought it was a great opportunity to hone my joinery skills and do someth...

When it was finished, the client decided to introduce a change: to divide the desk.

09-14-2009 10:47 PM by xylosapiens | 2 comments »

The client decided to make a change: he need an access to the desk’s inside, when her products are exposed on the counter. After thinking about the possible solutions and having to keep the structural solidity, I decided that easiest alternative was to cut the desk board. One of the questions was how to make the holes for the axes in such a small space. I found only one solution: to tear off the central piece for drilling, so that after glueing, the piece could looked like before manipu...

Les Paul 2011 #1: Starting up

12-10-2011 09:50 AM by Josh Sollows | 3 comments »

Alright, well, I’ve been meaning to post this for a while now but never got around to it. I did this guitar last year in 2010/2011 and I figured I’d show you how I did it. So, these stages here are the initial stages of building this guitar. The back of the guitar is mahogany, and the front is tiger maple. I used a pre-created template to layout the pickup holes, and neck pocket After routing out the neck pocket and pickup areas, the block of wood I started with, ...

screwdriver #1: Admit it, fix it, and move on... (now with pix!)

03-04-2007 05:11 AM by scottb | 29 comments »

First the bad news, just after my Bro-in law rec’d his homemade 6-in-1 mahogany screwdriver for christmas (and my nephew asked if he was really going to use it) it broke. Apparently the fact that I made it was a miracle, as I misjudged and left the wall closest to the business end very thin. First attempt was only a success in working out all the details in getting it on the lathe, and then off in one piece. Another second and It would have exploded on me. Like any good customer ...
