Octave Mandolin #20: Custom Octave Mandolin

03-15-2018 03:10 AM by Tomy Hovington | 1 comment »

This project was commissioned and was quite the undertaking. My customer wanted a Octave Mandolin with a archtop and flat backboard. Since there was no blueprints to make such an instrument I had to do research, compile information and sketch my own drawing to even start the project. This build stretch over a year and a bit and was just completed.The wood used in this project is AAA quilted Maple back sides and neck, Engelmann AAA Spruce top, ebony fretboard, binding, and peghead veneer. Maho...

Stand Up Jewelry Box #14: Legs and internal assembly

03-15-2018 03:03 AM by cowboyup3371 | 1 comment »

I need a bigger workbench after events of this week – one of the main carcass boards fell and broke while I was trying to size and fit the legs before assembly. I chose not to use clamps as I needed full access to the sides and wasn’t ready to assemble it as it was still too cold. However, I did not lose as much time as I feared and am now set to finish this project up by the middle of next week with delivery scheduled for the end of the month. I still need to make a door to hi...

Cutting Boards and Bandsaws

03-06-2018 04:48 PM by Steve | 4 comments »

I normally don’t mind saw blade changes, but I make an exception for the bandsaw, which is no fun at all. After the struggle to get the old blade off and the new one seated, there’s the long tedious process of setting the guides just so. In this case, I was installing a new resaw blade. I ruined the old one well over a year ago when I hit a hidden spike in a chunk of reclaimed pine. The blade made it through the steel, but (of course) was never the same again. I’ve be...

Three drawer hall cerdenza #2: Determining how to detail the legs

03-04-2018 09:54 PM by Oldtool | 9 comments »

For the better part of the last two weeks I’ve been attempting to determine how to apply a bead & set-back plane to the front legs, to look something like this: My first thought was to create the side beads the length of the leg, using a simple scratch stock. This proved to be feasible, as shown here: This proved easy when referencing the tool on the side of the practice leg, but then came the semicircular portion I wanted to use. Multiple attempts failed, as follows:First ...

Woodworking Mallet (Carver's Mallet)

03-02-2018 10:23 PM by wrenchhead | 1 comment »

I made these hand made woodworking mallets (Carver’s Mallet) from some leftover maple I cleaned up, laminated, then turned on the lathe. This is a great project for when you only have an hour or two to spend in the wood shop. Nothing better than making my own tools. Thanks for watching! https://youtu.be/dZAOw_frfcI

I made this jewelry box to store necklaces and rings for my daughter as an bridal shower gift. I made it to hang as a small cabinet but it would be just as nice sitting on a dresser. In this easy wood project i use a mix of hand tools and power tools. This was a fun weekend woodworking project! I hope you like it.https://youtu.be/Z0YMjwnBBBo

Three drawer hall cerdenza #1: Start to a new project requiring new techniques

02-22-2018 01:23 AM by Oldtool | 5 comments »

I have a request for a small credenza to be used as a hall table, but including three drawers. This project requires several techniques new to me that I want to use & hopefully be able to master. The design selected is “something” similar to this antique found on line at a site named 1st Dibs: I made a drawing of what I had in mind, which was agreed on, so I started the process: I started with the sides, making the legs from 8 quarter maple, the panel in the f...

Building a Spherical Chess Set #5: Turning the chess pieces and completion

02-06-2018 06:48 PM by johnstoneb | 5 comments »

It took a little while to decide on a design for the chess pieces. I had to go through 2 books on turning chess pieces before coming up with something. After turning the maple 1/2 of a set I decided to see how well they would hold on the globe. I had made them too tall and the king and queen kept tipping off.Back to the drawing board and make them shorter. I found that when turning a large number of pieces on the spindle that I could not do the finish cut (kept breaking the...
