My son (4 yrs. old) received a baseball bat and ball autographed by Randy Winn of the San Francisco Giants. (Go Giants!) This is the display case I built to show them off. And also to keep him from running around the house and smashing things with the bat. The case is made of cherry wood. The front door of the case has 1/4” safety glass. The frame is joined with mortise and tenons. The glass fits into a rabbet in the back and is held in place by 8 wooden brackets. The sides of the ca...
Time to start with some curves – I’ve created a pattern that’s based on an article that Wayne Barton published about designing your own leaf patterns. I did a simple leaf, and just reflected it around the boundary. I put in a tulip pattern in the center, but feel free to fill the center with a design of your own.
I couldnt find any info that explained how to make bent inlays without using a router and a template, which is time consuming and limiting. I thought about using the bandsaw to make S shaped cuts and inserting pliable strips, but thought that the rough cuts made by the course teeth would show up, but I was encouraged after reading Blogs by Patron and Degoose on making double curve lazy susans. The cuts were made on the bandsaw and the pieces mated up just fine. So, I made a test piece. I trie...
When I started out to make the candy, I thought I would just simply cut up my scraps and sand them smooth.This worked for some pieces, but I soon found that a more systematic approach was needed for consistancy.I wasted half a day making pretty pieces, shaped all willy nilly that were impossible to fit into the tray without leaving gaps everywhere. I did think about bedding the pieces in a liquid resin, but figured it would either set up before all the pieces were in, or flow over the rim whe...
I am starting a simple blog on how I made my candies for the box called “Eye Candy” This will work as a blanket answer to all the questions I have recieved on this. Its pretty obvious that they are no more than glued up woods of contrasting colors, but this will give insight on how I did it.I am working on pictures at this point and some will be posted in the next chapter, hopefully tonight. So follow along if you are interested.Also, I want to thank everyone again for voting and ...
I don’t know, it just looked like an old style TV test pattern.
Another basic pattern, builds on the simple triangle—but it’s set up to cut across grains at different angles.
I added a simple border around this design, the sides are cut from the inside first, then the outside.
Yes folks the big day has arrived… We are proud to announce the first dealers of the Torque Workcentre in the U.S.of A.The machine was sent to Denver, Colorado last month, to be featured on the Cool Tools show.. Stuart Lees of Stu's Shed went over to demostrate the machine and from what I have heard had an absolute blast… Working with Chris Grundy would have been an experience not to be missed … nor is a trip to Rockler… we don’t have them here….Our first ...
I based this on the form used in a cross pattern from myChipCarving.com
