Vintage Tools #1: For The Love of Tools!

03-08-2013 12:53 AM by dj1096 | 2 comments »

My love of wood I owe to my Great Uncle Albert. I have a picture when I am about 4 helping him in his shop. He loved wood but was not a very “fine” carpenter. For him you could never build it to sturdy with more wood and of course this was reinforced by more screws. I loved what he exposed me to but decided I wanted to become the best carpenter I could be and that would mean finding a teacher to help me reach that goal. I met a luthier when I was about 12 and was all to happy t...

Toy gun with working trigger

01-14-2017 10:42 PM by ShaunMeighan | 0 comments »

Hello again folks! This weekend’s project was a toy gun, but I wanted to make the trigger click back after being fired. To accomplish this, I used a simple rubber band! The main shape was cut out using a Shapeoko 3 CNC machine. Enjoy! View on YouTubeuTube

Pine Table Project #2: Rest of the legs and some aprons

03-29-2017 04:29 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

A quick update, this time around…. The Boss wanted to go over to Menards, and price a few items ( Honey-do sort of things..) While there I picked a couple 1×6 x 6’ Pine boards…...same price as a 12 footer, just a lot easier to carry in the van….took awhile to get a couple decent, but cheap boards….about half what they wanted for Clear Pine…..I can deal with knots… Letting them sit, leaning against the bandsaw…...the one in front was...

Building Two Baptismal Fonts #1: Design and Modeling

08-25-2015 05:27 PM by CharlesA | 6 comments »

I am in the process of building two baptismal fonts. One for a chapel for the Presbyterian Center in Louisville and one for my local congregation. I’m a theologian by training and a woodworker for fun. I sort of stumbled into these projects. This will be a long process, and I’ll try to keep up some blog entries, but it will a bit irregular. I’m starting with the one for my local congregation. Here is the basic model I am working with: I need to make some chang...

Lessons Learned #5: Cutting guides make the world go 'round

10-23-2008 05:23 AM by sry | 6 comments »

As a beginning woodworker without a large shop full of tools, I’m was at first skeptical about my ability to get by and produce interesting things without tools like a table saw or band saw. One of the things that’s really helped me get by is the cutting guide. I built a massive 8’ long cutting guide for my Ryobi circular saw, which makes it about 1000 times easier to chop up plywood without being dependent on the table saw I don’t have. I decided this evening tha...

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #11: Updates, Keeping the Pace, Growing Spud and some Pictures

06-13-2013 07:10 PM by Ethan Harris | 0 comments »

Hello All, Since opening my website things have progressively gotten a bit more busy. For instance yesterday I completed 4 orders that shipped out today only to get to my computer last night to see that 4 orders came in the very same day. So when I thought I was getting ahead, I was just keeping pace. On another note I bought a 20” chainsaw with some of my profits and I am preparing my plans for building a small forced air kiln to start drying out maple logs so I can offer Maple a...

Pochade Box in progress #3: Pallette, trim and oil

11-29-2013 06:42 AM by Jon1094 | 4 comments »

Yesterday I completed the combination pallete and wet canvase holder. It is constucted out of birch plywood with oak inserts for holding the wet canvases. The pallete is finished with two coats of BLO. It is shown out of the box with an inserted canvase and inside the box with the pallete in view. I trimmed the drawers with walnut and put two coats of Danish oil on the box. I’ll let the oil dry for three or four days and then finish with satin wipe on polyurethane. ...

This week in urban logging #12: It's been awhile since my last report (but I came back with pictures)

05-17-2009 10:33 PM by Daren Nelson | 9 comments »

I like crotches. I like milling them, I like making things with them. Some one dropped off this “crotchy” elm the other day. The butt log is kinda a big devil. So I cut one off to mill. I was a little bummed because I see 2 hearts, which usually means less figure/ more bark inclusion… I had to trim it abit to get it to fit the mill for width (more on that later) First slab looks decent. 28” wide…not bad for a bandmill that is advertise...
