How I made #5: Wooden business card holder

07-31-2018 07:51 AM by WoodenWorldDenic | 2 comments »

I used various types of light and dark wood to create a business card holder: walnut, cherry, oak and thermally processed ash. In later versions, I improved my basic design a little, I reduced the lock and made it easier to take cards from the box with one hand. Here is a video

Bench Dogs For The Work Bench

07-05-2018 08:06 PM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I made a quick video on how I made the bench dogs for my work bench using bullet catches to hold the dogs in place when not in use. This is a pretty common method of making bench dogs and they only take a few minutes to build. Thanks for watching

Timber Frame Barn Remodel #4: Then there was less below and more above

05-07-2018 04:35 PM by PoohBaah | 9 comments »

Well we are currently between swaps right now. The box swap went really well and the mallet/hammer swap doesn’t start up for a few more weeks. Also things in the fields are going well and nearly all the cattle are moved to pasture. Even with all this going on I actually had a few free hours to get back into my barn and start cleaning. I started a fire in my burn barrel and also in my fire pit. So by dividing and conquering I was able to make some pretty decent headway. You can see in th...

Is this all Red Oak? I dont think so...

04-26-2018 07:50 PM by Lalen | 15 comments »

So.. I ordered a single cabinet door from an online company (nameless for now). I ordered an unfinished oak door and picture looked like white (golden) oak. There was no where to specify so I just assumed it would be white oak. That is what I needed. It took 6 weeks and this is what I received. I just wet with mineral spirits to highlight the wood grain. I send the first picture and let them know they had sent me a door with mixed wood. Both red and white oak. DO YOU AGREE? The...

White oak burl bowl

04-20-2018 12:24 AM by HoosierBoy87 | 2 comments »

I accidentally posted this in blogs rather than projects… Anyway for this entry to be deleted? Just finished a bowl I turned from a white oak burl. It was finished with a coat of danish oil and three coats of polyurethane. This is my first post in a long time… I have not had a ton of time to do much woodworking as I’m still in college, but we are almost in to summer now and I will likely be working on a lot more projects. I will probably also post some of the things I have made...

Stand Up Jewelry Box #14: Legs and internal assembly

03-15-2018 03:03 AM by cowboyup3371 | 1 comment »

I need a bigger workbench after events of this week – one of the main carcass boards fell and broke while I was trying to size and fit the legs before assembly. I chose not to use clamps as I needed full access to the sides and wasn’t ready to assemble it as it was still too cold. However, I did not lose as much time as I feared and am now set to finish this project up by the middle of next week with delivery scheduled for the end of the month. I still need to make a door to hi...

Antique Tool Box #1: Is this a joiner's Tool Box?

03-13-2018 05:52 AM by CaptainKlutz | 12 comments »

#1 Dislike blogs. This is a documentary.This series of posts was created to document a recent estate find and hopefully gather some information from the antique tool collectors that troll LJ for entertainment. Did not want to pollute the HPOYD thread and potentially lose information. Back story: I have been working wood for 40 years as a hobby. As I become more senile and slow down from my impetuous youth, have learned I like the “FEEL” of working wood and started using hand...

Composer's Desk #1: Composer's Desk - blogging the project

03-07-2018 09:36 PM by nickbatz | 0 comments »

I was having these made by a shop out of solid oak or maple for over a decade, and all along I wanted to develop an affordable version. Then – spurred on by someone actually offering money :) – I figured it out: make it myself, and use nice oak plywood and high-quality Douglass fir dimensional lumber instead of solid oak that brings the materials cost up to about as much as this whole thing sold for! Based on posting pics on Facebook, I now I have two more “commissions...

I guess I should have started this in a blog, instead of the way I did, sorry. First started the transmission out of Gabon Ebony, and added some oak accents, and the engine flywheel is out of yellow heart. Now getting an good start on the engine, front cover and exhaust manifold. Adding the air compressor, valve cover, intake, fuel filter, turbo and alternator Needed a fan and some finish on the engine.
