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

726 days ago 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...

Palm Box (copy) #1: Purple Heart, ugh!

1345 days ago by mpmitche | 5 comments »

I decided I would try to whip out one of Andy’s palm boxes (mines a little bigger) for my daughter for Christmas. She loves purple so I picked up some purple heart and started cutting tonight. I’ve heard that purpleheart is brittle but WOW. I thought it would be along the lines of oak but this stuff splinters like crazy. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to do what I had originally planned. I work mostly with hand tools and had planned to do some chamfering and a littl...

Jewelry Cabinet #3: First Stage Glue up complete

1174 days ago by Devin | 1 comment »

Well…that took a lot longer than I expected. You’d think by now I’d remember that milling the lumber and cutting the joinery is only about the first 25% of the job. The bulk of the effort follows as you make the final adjustments, the final shaping, fine tune the details and then actually sand all the parts, glue up and sand again (and then repair the 6 dings/dents that somehow found their way onto my finished work, thank god for wet rags and irons). And I still have to p...

Challenge 04: Concept for a larger project

2322 days ago by ThreeJs | 3 comments »

I designed this simple proof of concept project for my house. My ultimate goal, (when I get the time, money, and tools) is to replace this: My current shop would be hard pressed to complete even this first project, but I think we will get there eventually. So here is the concept shelf. It is a wall hanging model, that when built will probably not go on the wall shown above, but will hang in the room, and hold some of our collections. I designed these shelves with Cherry and...

Diary #1: Serious load of wood

866 days ago by Kevin May | 4 comments »

I have just purchased roughly 2500 bf of misc lumber for $500. Included is significant qty’s of cedar, white oak, red oak, maple, pine and piles of species I will need help to identify. I’ll report back as I determine what I have. Thanks to some close friends that helped, we loaded 2 truck beds, and 2 large utility trailers.

The Great Workshop Vacation

1561 days ago by David Craig | 10 comments »

Today is the last day of the traditional work week and I am especially geeked in regards to the following week. Every year, I usually take a week off to perform some major work around the house. Last year consisted of building flower boxes and my roofing project. This year, I decided to give home refurbishing a rest and am focusing on wood and workshop projects. I spent the last two weeks getting all my ducks in a row. Mike (jockmike2) and I visited a mill two weeks ago to pick up some woo...

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

1395 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...

Sketchup #1: Handplane Cabinet and use of Sketchup in the design

304 days ago by paulcanbuildthat | 0 comments »

For my Introduction to Woodworking class, we have a “final project” that we choose ourselves. Given that I’m learning to use hand tools, I’ve decided to make a handplane cabinet. In my latest blog entry, I show how I use Google (now Trimble) SketchUp to create the design and the use of layers and scenes to showcase the various parts of the design without duplicating any portion. This was based on information that I learned from Bob Lang in his article from Popular Woodworking. T...
