Necklace Box #1: The first couple months

01-28-2011 06:15 PM by superstretch | 3 comments »

In September, I started coming up with ideas for my wife’s Christmas present. The short of it is—I haven’t finished it yet. Fortunately, it was a minor part of all that I was getting/making her, so she didn’t go without this Christmas. Part of my problem is that I’m still a greenhorn and purpleheart is a jerk to work with. Tearout, checking, and pitting is something I’ve had to deal with non-stop. For the past two weeks, my shop (no heating) has been bel...

My world of turning #5: First class. :)

09-02-2012 01:07 PM by JJones98042 | 3 comments »

This weekend, I completed my first turning class at my local Woodcraft store. It was a fantastic experience and well worth the time and tuition! The class consisted of a 3-hr session Friday evening and a full day Saturday. The first evening we covered the many of the basics. I learned an enormous amount starting with background and history of turning as well as equipment, accessories, tools and sharpening, etc. We also got the chance to “chew” on a hunk-o-poplar and make it in...

UnNamed #4: Not Forgotten

04-18-2012 12:54 PM by JoeyG | 3 comments »

I bet you guys thought I would never finish this blog. Well I had a month or two building bookcases then another few weeks cleaning, reorganizing, and painting my shop. I just posted a couple of pics of the shop. I have also finished up a few small boxes to put in the local day spa that carries some of my boxes. Now I am ready to pull this one off the shelf and get it finished. I have had a while to think on it. I am still not exactly sure what direction it will take to get to the finis...

Hurricane Irene wood casualties will be put to good use, Need some wood ID and tips

08-31-2011 12:00 PM by jfk4032 | 3 comments »

After being out of power for 30 some hours and bailing over 300 gallons of water from my sump pump well, I did get an unexpected surprise yesterday from Irene. I went to the county dump to dispose of most of our spoiled food and saw the sign for wood dumping area ahead. I drove over there and met several nice folks in my county here in MD who were disposing of trees that Irene took down. I’ve wanted to start resawing wood, even recently buying a riser kit and some new band saw blades...

Chess pieces and board #9: Finishing out the Chess Board

06-05-2014 01:41 AM by Luke | 3 comments »

Here’s a couple more pics of the progress I’ve made. I glued some veneer around the edges to fill in the gap between the fancy stuff and the edge where the board will transition into the sides. Then it was onto a lot of sanding. What I hadn’t expected was the dust from the Rosewood to stain the maple while sanding. So I sanded it down as good as I could without going through the veneer and then used a cabinet scraper to finish it off. I think it came out really nice and I ca...

Lacewood Lock #3: Shackle and Parts

03-13-2010 05:30 AM by deeman | 3 comments »

Today I made the shackle, The latch bolt, and the lever. The shackle is made of walnut and the other parts are from maple. I also drilled the back face and after sanding all the parts did a dry fit of the lock body and back face to make sure all parts worked properly. I then applied Arm R Seal to the top of the lock body. It is very hard to get to after assembly. After some more fitting I will glue the back to the center then the front.

07-21-2014 08:40 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

today i got the chest cover routed. This is a simple chest so I did a simple edge. A plain cove. .. . I braced the underside of the cover with maple cross pieces. Four recessed screws and glue. .tapered plugs will fill the screw head holes. I’ll chisel them off and sand them tomorrow after the glue dries. .I picked up a couple of boxes of aromatic cedar at home depot. Pretty expensive stuff I might add. It’s glued and pin nailed in. the pin nails of course are l...
