Last week in my video showing my first turning project I showed you a Pen Press I made to press the parts of a turned pen together. I asked if you wanted to see a Pen Press How to video and the overall response was yes. So here you go. This is a great little jig for pen turners and those of you who are wanting to venture into pen turning. I hope you enjoy it. Part 1 Part 2

Pallet Harvesting

06-27-2011 02:40 PM by CptWingnut | 11 comments »

So this is my first try at a blog, and I figured I’d start with something that is simple and probably had already been done a number of times before. Regardless, I will probably learn more about blog making than you will about pallets. Pallet HarvestingFirst you have to find a pallet that is worth harvesting, craigslist is a good place to look, but I have had much more luck by finding a company in an industrial complex that receives a fair amount of freight. Target places that have h...

Arts and Crafts 6 Drawer Dresser #1: Legs and Side Panel Glueups

12-11-2012 06:30 PM by pintodeluxe | 4 comments »

I started the dresser like I start most of my projects, by laminating up some legs. I am making two dressers, so 8 legs were in order. I cut strips of 3/4” quartersawn red oak, and resawed a few of them. I could then glue 3 pieces together to get my leg width. Finally, I glued on 1/4” thick stock to cover my jointlines. After the glue dries, I plane the thickness of these veneers to about 3/32”. That way, I get quartersawn grain on all 4 sides. I then milled s...

Transferring Images to Wood #2: The Dirty Work & The Big Payoff!

06-21-2013 08:29 PM by KnotCurser | 16 comments »

Okay, you have waited overnight (at least) and are now ready to continue….... The image has now dried and all the medium has gone perfectly clear. If you noticed the change in scenery, we are now in my kitchen at the sink. Get the water running pretty warm and then totally soak the image – that’s right SOAK IT! Let the water sit on top of the wood until the paper actually absorbs it and then put a tad more on. Now, take your thumb and, gently at first,...

Finishing Tips #5: Links to finishing topics of Interest

03-27-2013 07:03 PM by pjones46 | 9 comments »

Updated 3/1/15 as links were changed when Popular Woodworking bought out American WoodWorker…. One of the parts of woodworking that many would like to do better is finishing, and that includes me. On my quest to obtain the background I have bought books, talked with professionals in the field, and searched high and low on the internet to find the answers to my questions. Some of the questions arose as I was completing a project but others were generated by what I had read. As I have got...

But it has been quite a while since i made my last project and i really had a need to get in my shop and tinker a bit. What to make that is not too big a project and that improves beeing ins...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #3: Tap for Wooden Nut

03-14-2012 04:06 PM by Mauricio | 21 comments »

Hello again, On the last blog I made the guide block that guides the tap. Here I’ve made the tap and cut my first nut last night! I’m very excited about this accomplishment, this is really the most challenging part of the build and I think cutting the screw to fit will be pretty straight forward. If you’re like me, you like looking at pictures more than reading so here are some pics showing the process I followed with a brief explanation. Laid out thread pitch on paper (2...
