Addendum to "Arty" my articulated friend

05-30-2016 02:48 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 1 comment »

This little blog is to supplement my project labelled ’Meet “Arty” my little articulated friend.’ which should have been or will be “projected” shortly. A brief word about the author…. I am currently chair ridden due to a sprained ankle so I can only channel my “talents” to typographic mistakes rather than woodworking ones and thereby inundate LJ with my verbal diarrhea. As the “Arty” project briefly discusses “nuts”, th...

Turning the top portion

05-22-2016 02:08 AM by Julian | 1 comment »

I started turning the top half of the vase. After the outside was rough turned, I turned the inside. The wall thickness is almost 1/2” thick. This will leave me enough wood to shape the outside after I glue the two halves together.

Pipe Making #1: Introduction

05-18-2016 04:03 PM by MadMark | 1 comment »

This is a first draft of what should become a nice illustrated tutorial on making a pair of one piece pipes. The pipe making process is much more complicated and needs a lot of tools to make. Pipe making requires: Table saw Drill press (several bits) Band saw 4” Stationary Belt sander Oscillating Spindle Sander 1” belt sander 8” disc sander ROS sanding @ 120 & 240 Hand sand with sanding sponge At this point the pipe is ready for finishing. ...

Saw Making #2: Gents Saw Part 1

05-14-2016 07:12 PM by AgentTwitch | 0 comments »

There has been a lot of interest in building tools from scratch, rehabbing tools that needed some love, or repurposing a tool so that it might have more potential or beauty. I have decided to chronicle a few saw builds in these categories in the hope that it might inspire someone to give it a try that was otherwise too nervous to begin the journey on their own. For this series, I am going to do a write up on re-purposing an inexpensive gents saw into a western style dovetail saw. This idea...

Curved Front End Table #6: Pulls, Finish and Final Assembly

05-14-2016 01:04 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

This is the final video in this series. Before final assembly, I finish the piece with shellac and Waterlox for the cherry, and water based poly for the maple parts. I also show how I made the custom pulls for the doors and the drawer from ebony and maple. I show how I hide the magnetic catches for the doors so they are almost invisible. Then it’s on to the task of installing them correctly on the curved surfaces. The rest of the interior pieces get installed, the top and back get...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1729: Boxing Day

05-03-2016 01:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

As an artist, I love getting new supplies. Besides loving to work in so many different types of media, being active on the internet and participating in classes and online forums exposes me to many, many different new and exciting products. It really keeps my creative juices flowing and I love trying new techniques and products. It is a wonderful part of what I do. Many of you know that I live in a very small place. Keith and I have lived in a one bedroom apartment for over seven years n...

Turning project - Mother's day gifts #2: Blanks roughed out and first vase turned

05-02-2016 02:29 AM by Mike_D_S | 0 comments »

So I had picked up a nice piece of maple 4×4x8” and a rosewood block 4×8x8”. They are big enough to get these projects done, so I split the rosewood block into two 4×4x8” pieces on the bandsaw. I have some inexpensive HF turning tools I bought to get started and a few of the easy wood tools with the carbide tips. I had bought the Rikon low speed grinder that was on sale last month, but it as on backorder. It finally came in, so before I got started, I se...

Homage to Trifern - attempting the 2 dye 4 vase #6: Final finish and some decent pictures

04-26-2016 03:28 AM by Mike_D_S | 2 comments »

I finally ended up with 6 coats of Arm-R-Seal Poly in semi-gloss, giving it a light sanding after the last 3 coats with a 320 pad. I liked the look, but wanted just a bit more gloss, so I gave it two quick coats of spray lacquer in gloss. Now it’s looks good and the finish is glass smooth mostly. The really nice finish actually highlights some of the small imperfections in the turning, but you have to be looking up close to see them. I tried taking some pics using different lights...

Curved Front End Table #5: Maple Back and Curved Cherry Top

04-23-2016 11:52 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

In this episode, I make the back from some maple stock. The back is ship lapped and will be installed in a groove in the back legs I also make a solid cherry top with a curved front. Now I will say I completely screw up the first attempt by, well just being really stupid and not paying attention to what I was doing, and using the wrong bit in my router. I do show how I recover from this mistake in the end. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To keep up with what I’...
