I can’t believe how long it’s been since I last posted. I’ll ensure I contribute more often.Here are some pictures of the coring of a 20” half-log of red oak I was able to acquire. The end result was 5 rough-turned bowls that are now drying. The largest is 19 1/2” and the smallest is 7 1/2”. It took me one hour to rough-turn the outside of the blank and 1:45 to core the 5 bowls.
Hey Everyone, well its been a while since I have posted a project video. Things have gotten busy at the shop with the new ASDOO Music Cajon Drum line. Well I have a nice weekend project for you this time. It is a Mini Buffet with Hutch. The plans for this mini buffet with hutch are available at The Newfoundland Woodworker Website in the free plans section. This is Part 1 of the project. I hope you enjoy.
Thought I would let all the lumber Jocks know that there is A George Nakashima exhibit at the Wing Luke Museum in Seattle WA. It’s a great show with lots to look at the only bad part is you cant take pictures.
As some or most of you may know, my back has been injured/screwed up since, oh…late July. It didn’t really put a damper on my workshop activities till the beginning of September when I finally succumbed to the pain and sought the help of the local chiropractor. Well, after some x-rays and some scary medical jargon (I miss the good ol’ days when it was simply called a “bad back” instead of something that sounds like a terminal disease!) I was basically put on be...
Howdy, I started mounting the table top today. It occurs to me, in hindsight, that I may have caused myself a lot of frustration. I’ll find out soon enough when I try to place the diamonds. Be that as it may, it’s turning out pretty well but you can still tell that a rookie is doing the work. I was able to use the warped pieces but now I have a few pieces that are slightly higher than others. I just bought myself more hours of sanding. I’ve also got a few gaps. A f...
This time i made an A.C. Milan herb. Oak wood. It’s still warm, todays work ;) size: 38cm x 24cm. MOVIE - A.C. Milan
Buffet of my own design. 4 drawers. 2 doors. The center main drawer looks like 2 drawers but is only one large drawer with two drawer fronts to make it look more balanced. Main design idea was taken from a magazine article, but modified extensively so that it is not much at all like the original. Top will get breadboard ends and trimmed to 18” deep. Drawers are of Baltic Birch with machine-cut dovetails. Backsplash will be shaped/contoured. More pics soon!
From left to right-Orange wood – gnarly, twisted top end Oak – burly crotch wood,Mahogany – straight grainedPecan – (I think) wormy holedOak (again) – straight grained Any suggestions on cutting the oak trunk to manageable (12” bandsaw) size? I have a 14” electric chainsaw.
It is dyed, stained and sprayed. Now for the final assembly. There is a lot more on this project, as in final assembly, then on most of my projects. I had to add the lights in the piers, headboard and header. I usually use curio lights behind the shelves, but I wanted to try some long florescent lights this time. I am still waiting for the glass for the top and the smoked glass doors. They should be ready today and I can post the finish project. Here are a couple pictures: Fo...
I’ve renamed my 5 preexisting project series from “project: whatever” to “00n: whatever” where n is the number of the set of posts in order. E.g. instead of “project: a rolling base for my planer,” that was the second project series I made, so now it’s “002: a rolling base for my planer.” The projects were starting to scatter in my series list, and I’d have a few series listed at the top in the drop-down for new posts, then an ...
