Kill the Treble #13: The Cats Eye

837 days ago by thebenchroom | 1 comment »

Yesterday I had left a combination of wood glued onto the top horn of my bass, and wrote about the uncertainty I had attempting this technique. No practice run, with real bullets on my first try. The sequence of Maple veneer, Mascassar Ebony, Maple Veneer was shaped this morning and too my surprise it came out better than expected. I’ve attached the second eye that will cover the input jack, and with any luck it will come out like the first. Over the next few days I’ll be reassembling the...

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #8: Cut, Sand, Repeat. Cut, Sand, Repeat...

483 days ago by Ethan Harris | 4 comments »

Hello Readers! There is a glimmer of light in the progress department of my small business. The brightest spot being that orders keep coming in at a steady pace. The Ugly has reared its head however in the form of doing the same process, over, and over, and over again only to repeat it again and again… I find myself trying to stay ahead of the orders, trying to not think about the fact that in the course of three weeks I have made over a 1000 square 1.5×1.5×1.5 inch blocks&...

my new shop #1: my new shop

1941 days ago by wooleywoodsmith | 3 comments »

as some of you might know we are moving. Its a good move but never the less it is a move. We are very fortunate to work for the mgmt co that oversees our new place. Fortunate in the fact that we can get into the place before we move in. Our actual move in date is May first and it is vacant now. Our new house is a side by side duplex, 2bedroom 1 3/4 bath with a mostly finished basement. The previous tenents really trashed the place big thyme so there are alot of new repairs being done. ...

Possible Inlay Project - Suggestions??

1860 days ago by Derrek LeRouax | 3 comments »

So, I am in the process of a myriad of “home” projects (shelves in kids rooms, re-finishing painted furniture, attic shelves, etc…), and have been spending my free time trying to figure out my next project. I am big on “form follows function”, so I want any project I endevor on to serve a purpose. I also want to continue my journey in woodworking, so I want to try something I have never done before, hence INLAYS. I have seen some great projects with even bette...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #55: Back to "Normal"

1455 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It feels really good this time to come down from such a hard push. It is funny, but it takes a while to gradually sink in that the urgency is no longer there. I wonder if it is chemical thing in our brains or something. I am sure adrenalin has something to do it. I spent yesterday glowing in the aftermath of the previous couple of weeks. Much of the morning I caught up on correspondence in between applying coats of finish to my kitchen table. Miraculously, none of the cats decided to ...

#1 Phillipine mahogany & bubinga box, how I made it.

1332 days ago by TheHarr | 3 comments »

These are my original design ideas for making my jewelry boxes. These diagrams may be a little confusing because I did not intended for them to be published. You guys are so nice, I had no choice but to share. This design was prevously used for making cigar humidors. I don’t have good pictures of them—sorry. I have lots of detailed instructions for every step to make this box. Just ask and I’ll add more to this blog. The rough cut diagram shows the sequence t...

WorkBench Build #1: Design Sketches

896 days ago by Doug McPherson | 2 comments »

My friend and I are in the planning stages of doing a joint, side-by-side build of some new workbenches. This will start with the logs and hiring a guy with a woodmizer to mill the timber in to boards. It looks like we are going to be using red oak, as we are able to get more than enough at the going price of fire/cord wood, then paying $.30/bd ft. to have it rough sawn. So, this won’t begin till next winter after it dries. Here are a couple sketches. No secrets here on the des...
