Gift Projects #1: Need a Gift? Make This Elegant Keepsake/Jewelery Box

02-01-2018 09:48 PM by ScottBelleri | 3 comments »

View on YouTube I made this box as a gift for my friend Linn from the Darbin Orvar channel. We made plans to drive down to Corvallis to meet with Linn and her husband Matt, and I decided to make this wooden box for them as a gift. I used some tropical hardwood for the sides (I think it was Ipe), and cherry wood for the top and bottom. The liner was Paduk. I only had a few days to make it, so I worked up until the last minute. I did what I could to save time, and ran into trouble figh...

Making a Big Cutting Board

01-28-2018 05:15 PM by YesHaveSome | 4 comments »

My cousin asked me for a big cutting board that two people could use at the same time. It ended up 36×16 and probably weighed 25 pounds. After a few months of nothing but shop projects it was nice to get back to making something for someone that will hopefully be in their home for years to come. The board is made of walnut, padauk and yellowheart. First time using any of those species. LOVED working with yellowheart. Smooth as glass after going through the jointer and planer. Padauk h...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #1: In the begining

11-06-2017 06:38 PM by Bluenote38 | 0 comments »

In the beginning chaos reigned. Yep, that about sums up my “shop”. Or to quote my wife: “What a mess”! Easily 50% of my time is spent searching for a tool or hardware I know I have and dancing around everything trying not to knock over wood piles or tools. I had a decent shop once but after several moves and life changes I’ve never been able to actually pull together another organized workspace. Now I’m staring at another move in 18 to 24 months and ...

How to Make a Hammer Handle

06-12-2017 01:26 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 5 comments »

View on YouTube So hammers are something that we all use and quite frankly there’s as many different ones as there are people in the world. There’s a hammer for every job, and there’s a gorilla somewhere that knows how to use it. To keep it practical, hammers/handles are purely individual taste. I’m not a big fan of overthinking things like thickness/shape/curve/popularityontheinternet. There’s no wrong way to do it but there are ways that work better than o...

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...

Hey guys i just thought I’d talk about the importance of networking with each other in the woodworking/maker community. Social media is a HUGE platform to show your work and meet other woodworkers all over the world( i think we all know this) but i just wanted to share my usernames for my platforms in hopes you guys could give me a follow and ill return the favor. Its all about growth and i have a dream of making this my way of living and you wouldn’t know how much it would help m...

Trefoil How-to

I posted this project over the weekend and got several questions from people about it, so I thought I’d share some of the process in case anyone’s interested. You can find out more about where the object comes from here: here: warned….there’s math in them thar links! The process is pretty straightforward. To begin, I cut bars 1 inch x 1 inch, making sure they ...

Musical Instruments #8: Appalachian Mountain Dulcimer #1

03-15-2017 02:40 PM by johnstoneb | 10 comments »

This mountain dulcimer build is entirely the fault of LJ’er Dave Rutan. I followed his blog on building a mountain dulcimer while I was building a marimba. When I finished the marimba he had convinced me that I could build a dulcimer. Thank You Dave, I think. I started searching “building mountain dulcimer” after a week or two of reading. There are a lot of people building dulcimers as it is a folk instrument there really is no right or wrong way to build a dulcimer. I...

100 foot cabinet shop #2: Accuracy, accuracy, accuracy . . .

02-13-2017 04:23 AM by Madmark2 | 5 comments »

Wood has three dimensions and the table saw cuts both X (length) and Y (width) The Z (thickness) axis needs a lunch box planer. The table saw has the Incra rip fence and miter gauge so X and Y are covered. Z however needed some help getting the same accuracy as the saw. One of the benifits of digital gauges is that I can see the reading without squinting or having to bend down. I have a digital height gauge to set the saw height and set the router bits consistently. Repeatability is...
