Kitchen Utensil Box #2: Milling the components

05-19-2015 06:16 AM by JSOvens | 0 comments »

Hello again, I left off last time with the design and materials for the kitchen utensil box. I started by milling the Padauk for the four corner posts. These posts are 1” square, while the piece of Padauk I purchased is 8/4. To avoid excess waste, I decided to resaw off about 5/8” for later use. I primarily used my table saw with a thin kerf blade, but since the board was about 6” wide, and my max blade height is 2”, I had to complete the operation by hand. Below is...

Maple Cradle #4: Applying the stain and finish!

05-18-2015 01:14 PM by CalumetWoodworks | 1 comment »

After getting the signatures burned into the cradle it was time for stain. I did some extensive research on-line (here and on other woodworking websites) about staining maple and I found out how difficult it is. I opted to use General Finishes Java Gel stain. This stuff is like pudding! Below is a picture of it after I applied it but before I wiped it off. Here are the results of applying two coats of the stain. After letting the stain set for 48 hours I applied the ...

Chevalet de Marqueterie #2: Small Beginnings

05-17-2015 08:50 AM by TobiasZA | 6 comments »

As my “Honey-Do” and client projects wind down a little before it really gets cold here in Swellendam, I have at last made a start on my build. A few weeks of regular scrounging at my local tip has yielded some good lumber and adding this to my off cut stack, I think that I have enough lumber to do the job. Buying the hardware kit and plans from ASFM at $500.00 means I would have been into about ZAR6,500.00 before I even made a start. So…..enter “Shipwright” w...

Getting my tools ready #19: MY STRAIGHTEDGE ROUGH CUTTING JIG.

04-30-2015 01:23 AM by DocSavage45 | 24 comments »

MY STRAIGHTEDGE ROUGH CUTTING JIG.First picture (jig with spalted Maple) The first picture you see is why I built the jig. If you have been following my journey and saw the other jig that I built for my band saw you know that this is the next step. I am truly in awe of what Mother Nature has given me. Picture 2 ( side view of completed straightedge jig with six-inch hold downs) The next picture is my rough drawing of what a poor man’s jig looks like. I decided to u...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1543: Main Carousel Construction DONE!

04-29-2015 12:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Yesterday was a really good day for me. A milestone even. After weeks of wracking my brain and trying to figure out the best way to build my "Scary-Go-Round" Haunted Carousel, I finally decided on trying a method and cut out the pieces and THEY WORKED! With all the woodworking and small project construction that I do on a daily basis, you would think that this would be 'easy-peasy' for me, but that really wasn't the case. If I were making this a one of a kind projec...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1542: Electronics Makeover Complete Plus NEW Plaque Patterns

04-27-2015 12:33 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I was so thrilled to have such a productive weekend! Even though I am 'busy' most days, it sometimes seems like there are times when we feel like we are working hard and in the end, little is accomplished. (Or little is noticed, anyway!) But this weekend, we made big strides on both our home organizational project that we began a couple of months ago, and also I made progress on my "Scary-Go-Round" Haunted Carousel. I woke up today ready to take on another week and the world...

Maple Cradle #2: Single day build!

04-24-2015 04:39 PM by CalumetWoodworks | 0 comments »

About 3 days after I got the parts for the cradle I broke out the plans…hoo boy….I may have bit off more than I can handle with this one. My shop is not equipped for larger projects. I have yet to get a band saw, table saw, router and router table, a planer. My shop is better equipped for smaller wood projects, pens, toys, puzzles, etc. So..following the plans I started with the two rockers. Have you SEEN U-Bild plans?!? OMG! What the heck did I get myself into?!? I tap...

Maple Cradle #1: The making of a family heirloom

04-22-2015 07:32 PM by CalumetWoodworks | 1 comment »

Awhile ago I found out I was going to be a first time grandpa! My daughter and son-in-law had been trying to have kids for over 5 years. They did all the tests, and fertility things. She found out she was pregnant (for real and not just “chemically”) in November of 2014. I knew then that I wanted to make something for them to keep in our family for a long time. Some of the criteria that I had in my head when picking a project: It had to be fairly basic. I don’t have a...
