From a 200 year old ruin to a workshop, a 3 year journey... #15: Finally a floor in the workshop and some more...

298 days ago by Serradura | 9 comments »

It’s all because of a lovely lady that the floor became a reality in our workshop. Yes, she raised me and gave me my motto in life.. “Doing things for free, doesn’t mean doing them for nothing. Appreciating all work that was done, she decided, while spending a 3 months holiday in Portugal, that she could only leave after being sure that her son would finally had a finished workshop in which he could work on a brighter future. We started with the concrete beam bene...

Workshop Projects #2: From a 200 year old ruin into a workshop - Part 2

306 days ago by Serradura | 2 comments »

Now, how strange it is to be all alone in your workshop, nobody around, just you, your tools and your video camera and still being nervous. Knowing that you are going to share that video with the world makes you feel watched and although you can do it over and over again until you got it right, still your feeling embarrassed while making mistakes. Maybe that insecurity will become less overtime…. I didn’t withhold me from making the second video on the 4 year long journey of re...

312 days ago by Jim Earl | 3 comments »

I should start showing the beginning picture of my burnings so you can see what I work off of. OK I made a mistake, I did not take a picture before I started this burning so I hope you will be able to see the before and after. Here is a couple that has asked me to burn this as a special momenta. Trying to get the right picture done as a pattern isn’t that easy and sometimes it turns out the first few times. this one took about six time of reprinting. I do go through a lot of in...

Ok Here goes. I have put this off for about two weeks. It has taken me about 9 hours to get it to this point. People thinks that the woodburning they done in high schools is same as what I do. After selecting the picture there is hours pending trying to get the picture just right to transfer everything over to the piece of wood. after you put it on the wood I spend a lot of time going over and over to get the right depth. so with out further ado I give you the DAGON FLY. (OK I AM GOING...

339 days ago by Jim Earl | 3 comments »

Well I new this wouldn’t last. but it was great as long as it did, What I’m talking about is my wood sorce was a friend of mine worked at a factory that received there inventory with 1/8”, 1/4” and 1/2” plywood, and so he was able to pick up truck loads of it.

Architrave molding

343 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

I’ve been remodeling the house and thought I’d just post a few pictures of how I make my architrave moldings. I don’t know how they are really made. This is just a solution I came up with with the bits I had in the drawer. It starts off with four parts that I sandwich together. The top two parts are made with a simple ogee bit, the cove is made with a raised panel bit, and the bottom part is just a thin strip of wood. Along with that I made some fluted molding for the sides....

Texas Star #1: Learning the 2D Texas Star

356 days ago by MarkTheFiddler | 5 comments »

Howdy,Earlier today I was trying to learn a simple way to make a Texas Star. My neighbor wants to inlay a star on a table and we were both rather perplexed. I should have searched through the forum topics instead of the projects. I found a few cool posts about it. But it was too late. We were already making firewood out of reclaimed pine. I managed to make the prototype as the sun was setting. Ok – Here is what I have. You need to cut 18 degree angles down the length of...
