Wolf's Tooth Banding...a Two for One

1358 days ago by Bob Simmons | 3 comments »

“It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.” .....Muhammad Ali, Heavyweight boxing champ…1942 - One of the benefits of creating “Wolf’s Tooth” wood inlay bandings is that you actually get two bandings for the effort of one. What do I mean by this? When the initial cuts from the laminated stock are made on the table saw using the dedicated miter saw we flip th...

Just for Fun... #81: Woodworking on the Back Burner...

228 days ago by littlecope | 26 comments »

After taking the Summer off (and enjoying it immensely!) it was time to get back to Work! And after searching around in the available jobs, I was lucky enough to find Work in the finest Hospital in N.H., the Catholic Medical Center of Manchester…It seems that their Cafeteria was only open for the first and second shifts, and their third shift employees had been requesting “Hot Food” for some time… A decision was made, and the Cafe is now open for them with yours truly ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #810: Planning Ahead Pays Off

683 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

What a day yesterday turned out to be! I must have made the coffee just right (or maybe it was the pecan bars that I made the night before and had for breakfast!) because I feel like I really accomplished a lot. After a morning trip to the dentist (which I don’t like at all, but came out ‘unscathed’) and a stop at the gym, I had to stop at the store to pick up some things for my new projects. By the time I got home, it was almost noon and I thought that the day was going...

The Puyallup Fair #2: No wait... scratch that!

1061 days ago by GodofBiscuits | 6 comments »

So I’ve had a little luck (Big thank you to WoodArtbyJR) getting a hold of the Hobby Hall people at the Fair and talked about my options for displaying the clock. The first option was a half wall above the display cases they store most the entries. This would be ok if the wall wasn’t 4 feet tall and started more than 6 feet above the ground. This meant, my clock would have to be displayed without the pendulum as the entire clock is over 5 feet in length with the pendulum installed...

The Wine Rack (I can't tell if my pics will appear or not!!)

1767 days ago by NBeener | 3 comments »

Got an old book of DIY woodworking plans, from a used book store. First thing I flipped to was a wine rack—coincidentally, something we’ve talked about buying for our kitchen/living room. This one called out white oak, with darker walnut plugs (to conceal exposed dowel holes, and used to provide a decorative contrast). I got a chance to pick up two new hole saws, a doweling jig (neat!), my first Forstner bit, a couple of strap clamps, and a bunch of beautiful wood. Not...

My 2008 "Not Just Any Box" Winter Awards #6: Carving drawer handles

2378 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 16 comments »

Yesterday afternoon, I shifted my gears into the carving mode I decided to make drawer handles, & decided that a small rose would look kind of nice. Actually, to tell you the truth, I had made that decision when first designing the box.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~First I picked out a piece of cut off, & drill 3 holes with my plug cutter. These plugs will later be used to hold the rose while caving, & also for fastening to the drawer front. ...

My first simple box #2: Mitering and the BIG question.

1453 days ago by Benighted | 7 comments »

Were moving along here, this time I’ll be mitering, and this will be done with a jig on the shooting board. Like this: Two edges mitered… Outside of mitered joint, not perfectly aligned in this dry fit test. inside of joint: Now to the BIG Question… Which wood do you think I should use for the top and bottom… the choices are: Maple: Cocobolo: Purpleheart: Wenge: I also have some bubinga, but it’s a little bit to thin for the look ...

Rottenstone Problems

1646 days ago by GoGoZRX | 0 comments »

http://www.blackroses.com/~skip/woodturning/problems/ I picked up some 4F pumice and some rottenstone… I sanded to 400, then used the pumice. I put some of the paraffin oil on a rag, and sprinkled on the pumice. Needless to say, I was quite surprised when the white powder turned ashy, but I cranked up the speed on the lathe and went at it. In short order, the surface was gleaming!“I can’t wait to try out the rottenstone!” Or so I thought… it seems to have gotten into the ?pores? of the ...
