Greetings all. Well, the plans are coming along, but I’ve hit a bit of a roadblock. To make the Rubik’s cube pedestal I will need six different colors, and they must be different enough to stand out against each other. This could be hard to do if I stick with natural wood, so I’ve been thinking of going with a single species with a light color such as white oak or maple, then dye it. I want the grain to be obvious, so something transparent is in order, plus, to keep wi...
As you know from one of my earlier posts I met up with Bob at the Canberra Timber and Working with Wood Show…The help I need is on Bob’s behalf…He posted recently about a trip he and his wife are taking and is asking for some advice….I am re-posting it here and I would appreciate any help you can give Bob…as a personal favour to me… “Hi all,My first post here but I’ve been lurking for years.Love this site and the format of the forum. The reason ...
The top and bottom spoons are Myrtlewood from Oregon, and the center one is Mahogany. Each took about 1.5 hours.The handle of the top spoon is a twist, but didnt photograph very well.I noticed the recent contest posted by Osageman and was impressed with both his skill and his big heart.Be sure and take a look at his page and make a guess on that wood.I couldnt identify that wood, but it got my attention.It got me interested in making a few spoons this last weekend and I wanted to share my...
A few day ago I posted the child rocking chair I have been building for 30 years, and got alot of good coments, one said ( good luck selling that on a site for woodworkers ) You might forget the their is a link to put the post on your FACEBOOK. And thinking about some of the other coments I have desided to offer the pland for the child chair. It is a very well built rocker, and balanced, and with the curved seat I have sat babys that can’t walk yet and they don’t slide out of the...
Sept 4 2010I have started a pair of night stands for our bedroom after they are done I will make the bed head board and a foot board with a TV lift inside so here is the start of the project I tend to get caught up in building and not take the time to document and take photos. I have a bit of free time on my hands because my wife is out of town for thee weeks on business. Let the project begin. As I’m sure you can see this is the stock I am using to get started. The other picture is te...
Well here is my latest sled design. This sled is a combination of many sleds that i have seen in the past. One sled that really influenced it, is the super sled by john nixon at eagle lake woodworking. I like the t track on the sled part (the sheet part) but i am going to use real t track. I also liked the t track on top of the fence, which i incorporated, but it stops there. This sled should be able to do just about everything. You can cut 45’s ( blade tilting at 45 deg ) and every o...
I started this blog separated from the spiral design because all the designs that will be posted here will be in a rectangular form. If you extend that circular arc by projecting it linearly, then a Sine wave will be produced. The distance of the y axis varies with the time… On the following design I used a cosine curve because I like to concentrate on putting the smaller pieces in the middle. So this is how it looks….. One at a time.. I will do in flesh after I fi...
As we continue on in our build we get to where we need to build the boxes for our drawers. I run through it and explain about setting up for the drawer slides.
It took me a different trial of wood samples. Since the plan is to have it done in endgrain, I have to select the wood that will not break at thickness of 7 mm or nearly 3/16 inch. I used my own strength for testing it. I have found several strong wood mostly 2/3. Cut them into desired pieces and looks like this. Another difficulty is select proper combinations of color depending on the design. I need some contrast to emphasize the design. I have to test the pieces by spraying wa...
I got an email from http://lumberjocks.com/didierld this person today: didierld. This guy (or girl) is a horrific spammer.. beware do not reply to this guy unless you want to do as I did- tell him to GET OFF THIS SITE. I don’t know how to report this person to the moderator? Could someone either tell me how to report the person so he and she can bug off? Thanks!
