Shop Doings #2: Building a Natural Edge Mirror Frame Jewelry Rack

102 days ago by SalvageCraft | 4 comments »

Hi LJ’s, I’m finally starting to work through some of the wood stores I’ve had lying around for years. With the new shop setup, I’ve got more efficiency in my workspace than I’ve ever had (and a lot more plans to continue improving the setup to come). This past Mother’s Day, my mom shared her new found passion for whittling with me. We had a nice time sitting out in the yard of my sister and brother in-law’s beautiful country home picking out ...

‘Uproot’ Sideboard table build

820 days ago by fissionchips | 4 comments »

I wrapped up finishing and posted the completed project: The photos below can be viewed larger size in the flickr set. === This project began with a plan to make use of a 1” slab of maple I got my hands on recently. The figure of the wood, the shape of the edge and the large size made it highly suitable for a table top. After sketching out some ideas on paper, I put them into sketchup for comparison. Given the natural edge of the top plank, the designs with straight lines and rectil...

150 - Bowl Turning Tools & Techniques w/ David Marks

1171 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 13 comments »

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options On a recent visit with my friend and mentor, David Marks, we decided to make a little video together. Initially the idea was to simply show David my video production process. But as things started to progress, I knew we had the makings of a great video and this was something I wanted to share with the woodworking community. The goal was simple: let’s turn a bowl! But as easy as that sounds, properly filming ...

A bit of a wood gloat

1235 days ago by David Craig | 7 comments »

I haven’t had much time to devote to shop projects for a couple weeks. Work and life still a little too chaotic for the moment. I did, however, have a bit of good fortune with an unexpected gift of wood. I had a childhood friend contact me on facebook and let me know that he had some “branches” he had pruned off of his Black Walnut tree and I could have what I wanted. Not one to turn down free wood, I investigated and found the branches were 3 12-15 foot sections that were a...

African Lumber Adventure #2: "Pitruss" Table and Benches in Niangon

1251 days ago by Andy Brownell | 6 comments »

DESIGN INSPIRATIONI drew inspiration on my latest project from my recent experience visiting South Africa to build something for my in-laws (originally from Cape Town, SA). I wanted to design a table and set of benches that reflected the cultural experience of the visit, as well as their own personal style and needs for utility and durability. To start, I put Google to the test for some images showing unique slab-style pieces built by other people. I came across a few that were interesting...

Lathe Projects #3: Natural Edge Ash Bowl #2

1296 days ago by David Craig | 10 comments »

The last post left with some work to be completed on the piece before dismount. I wanted to work the edge of the bowl a little thinner and I did some aggressive stock removal on the interior and exterior edge. This left me with the bowl here. and here I did a little more work on the side to remove the somewhat boat like appearance and give it more curve. I cut the bowl off the lathe and began running through the grits of sanding. I have more trouble spots to touch up on that wil...
