I have quite the back log of footage. So I figure I will keep mixing it up and putting out different themed videos instead of concentrating on just the coffee table build (where I am sitting right now writing this). I have done a couple of guitars for this guy, so he must be OK with my work. This 2003 Strat was one he bought on Kijiji and sent it over to me to get it working the way he likes them. A bit of wiring, lots of cleaning, and a bunch of adjustments later and the guitar is just a...
So I’m down to making gifts for the nurses at my doctor’s office. I rarely visit the office for a “Sick Call” but I do take care of their computers. It’s always an inconvenience for the nurses when I have to interrupt their routines, so I try and make up for it by making each of them a little something every year. My sister gave me this idea a couple of years ago when she gifted me a turned scoop and I’ve been meaning to make some ever since. I had some ...
My original plan for this project was to follow the process outlined in this article:http://www.popularwoodworking.com/projects/tips-for-finishing-cherry. Saving you the read, the steps are 1. Apply dewaxed shellac as a seal coat2. Apply glaze, a cominbation of artists oil and Liquin, for color3. Coat the fully dried glaze with topcoat of poly Seems simple enough, but in my own rush to finish the porject I did not cut my shellac with denatured alcohol, and as such the glaze would not reall...
This is the latest video in the build of the Octave Mandolin. In this segment I’m gluing the freshly made soundboard to the quilted Maple rim. Adding the tone bars and cutting out the Apertures. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DmdEjQzoCDA
Turning holiday ornaments is a fun and easy way to make gifts for all those people on your holiday list. This video walks you through the process of making a cool little snowman. https://youtu.be/-s7riGdwPd8
It is hard to believe we are at the end of another week already. I have been trying my best to stay caught up with things, and for the most part, I think I am doing alright. I have long ago abandoned the idea having to do "x" number of designs per week/month/year. If I measured my productivity by those numbers alone, surely it would be depressing and I wouldn't be fair to myself. There is so much more that is involved in my day-to-day activity that takes a good deal of time.&nbs...
This Blog post is an overview, if you would like detailed info and links to the jigs I used to build this door please visit my personal blog post Building a Custom Trapezoid door and if you would like to see completion pictures please visit my custom furniture website, or watch it be built on YouTube As with most every project, I started out rough cutting the parts to the general size and milling them to the thickness I need. I used my shop made tapering jig to cut the top and b...
My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1795: Product Test - Krylon Gallery Series Fine Art Fixativ
Today's post will be pretty much to the point. I have already been out and back and have a multitude of tasks that I need to work on today. It is all a great deal of fun though, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Most of you have seen my completed pastel drawing of my dear cat Pancakes: I have had such a wonderful response to it that I can't express my appreciation for your wonderful support. It really helps me feel as if I am heading in the right direction with my art ...
A fellow Lumberjock requested more info on how I made my quick & dirty Quoridor board. After sending him the info, I figured I might as well post it here. It’s been almost a year since I made the board so I hope my memory is correct. Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll do my best to answer them. MAKING A QUORIDOR BOARD The overall width is determined by the size of the squares that make up the board plus the width of your blade. I made mine by allowing for extr...
Instructions for making functioning and decorative fireplace bellows: Feb. 9, 2004 (Up-dated Sept. 2016) I have made well over sixty of these. I developed this process and pattern from a carved bellows I bought in Norway in 1984. The decorative inlay process is explained in another blog of mine. Wood can be any kind that you like to use. Needed is about 30 inches of 1×8. One half-inch thick wood will also work if you can find it. I have used Oak, Cedar, Pine, Waln...
