12-29-2010 09:44 PM by Donna Menke | 5 comments »

You can see more of my projects and links to other woodworking and carving blogs on my web site: www.woodworks-by-donna.comI have some nice cherry wood on hand- so I’m going to make another harp similar to the last one, but with a few variations. Stocks above, and view of grain below.This is the harp I made from plans from MusicMakers back in 2007, out of walnut boards. http://harpmaking.blogspot.com/Here is the rough stoc...

The beginning

12-29-2010 04:26 PM by Gator | 2 comments »

I am going to attempt to build a box for my father in law to store coins in. The criteria is fairly simple. ( in theory ) The box must be small enough to fit inside a floor safe, yet big enough to be able to carry multiple coins to a show. Box size will be approx. 8.5” x 8.5” x 12” deep, with three flush mounted drawers in the front, with 3 storage compartments running the length of each drawer that will be used to store coin display cards that are 2” square. I ...

Donna's DragonFly Harp Project

12-29-2010 02:18 AM by Donna Menke | 13 comments »

Hi Guys-I’m starting to make another harp and I thought some of you would be interested in seeing how it goes- as it goes.Why am I designing my own harp? I wanted to see if I could modify the Limerickplans I used for the Rainbow harp I made in 2007. I wanted the soundbox smaller,and I wanted it to be self-supporting and as tall as the Heartland DreamWeaverthat I have and like. I took aspects of lots of different harps and put them alltogether and this is what I came up with. I also want...

Christmas Presents: Early & Late

12-27-2010 04:43 AM by spunwood | 5 comments »

I was gifted by a very generous Lumberjock with a Skilsaw. I just recently used it to crosscut some hard maple, and I wanted to say thank you again to Jim C (it works great!). Also, I wish all of you here a Merry Christmas. That was the early Christmas gift. The late Christmas gifts are for my parents which I am just now working on: A wine balancer & A cutting board. You can see all three gifts in the the pictures

Table Saw Outfeed and Blade Storage #2: Taking way to long to complete this simple project...

12-21-2010 07:31 PM by jusfine | 6 comments »

I finally got some time back in the shop. I calculated the size of the outfeed table, had a friend with a cold press laminate both sides of a sheet of MDF for me, I cut it roughly to size and set it aside to finish up the base cabinet. I lost some photos somewhere for the middle of this process, but once my blade storage shelves were sanded out, I turned some purpleheart center dowels on the lathe for the blades to sit on. I made two sizes, one for the 10” blades, and one for the...

Corner Inlay Table #5: And ready to start over...

12-21-2010 06:30 AM by Rick | 0 comments »

So, part of the plan originally was to bevel the edges: 1/4” from the inlay, 10 degrees. The hard part was the very short sides. I figured that out using a sliding fence and 90 deg stop and clamps to hold the table top in place. Worked like a charm. Then, I got smart. Thinking I had the hard part licked, I assumed I’d be able to run the long sides along a tall fence on edge, and because I had plenty of length, I would be able to make these cuts in a straight forward manner. ...

Rebuilding the Bear #1: Rebuilding 1986 Grizzly 18" Bandsaw

12-19-2010 05:42 AM by Jon McGrath | 3 comments »

Tonight it begins, the journey of my first major tool rebuild. A very dear friend of mine has given me a Grizzly 18” Bandsaw. It was his neighbors who used it for cutting pipe – he got is around 5 years ago from another guy who was a woodworker who had not used the saw for at least 10 years. At this point my new old saw was a purchase – not knowing what the original owner paid, but starting with number 2 owner – $500.00 then on my friends neighbor for $300.00 and a se...

Holiday Craft Season Coming to an End

12-16-2010 04:34 PM by WoodArtbyJR | 1 comment »

Here it is Dec 16th already and my crasft season has ended. Oct 16th marked my first FULL year of craft shows. I learned a lot this last year. Mainly, when setting up or getting ready for a show, you REALLY haven’t a clue as to what will sell and what won’t….... I thnk it’s like the coined phrase, “Ya pays ya nickle and ya takes ya chances”. SO TRUE. I know one thing (OK, maybe a couple) LVDTs are always a popular item and I will continue to make them...

Facets, the Next Logical Step #1: How hard can it be to make a Dodecahedron?

12-12-2010 03:37 AM by shipwright | 17 comments »

The next box in the series Oops!, A Llittle Cabinetree, and now Facets is on the build. It had to be started because I’ve been obsessing too much on the finish of Cabinetree and in order to amuse myself between coats I had been so bored I had started making micro plywood and then micro boxes and banding. It had to stop.So the other day I started to think about what the next logical step would be keeping the theme and some of the aspects of the others but going a very different direction...
