Wood Art #11: Making a Jarvi Bench, with Mike Jarvi

1315 days ago by Gary Fixler | 24 comments »

A friend sent this to me, and it is simply a joy to watch. I didn’t even realize it was almost 16 minutes long! It’s a lot of fun, and for me, it had a lot of “Now what on earth is he doing here?” moments that were followed up by “Oh! Brilliant!” resolutions. I like that in my process videos :) This guy has some serious tools and space, relative to me, and works magics with a Wood-Mizer bandmill. I have most of that stuff in half or quarter the scale (but n...

Building a Credenza #1: Design Process

1443 days ago by Blake | 13 comments »

For several months now I have been dreaming about building a credenza as the ultimate next project to tackle. I don’t have a clue where I am going to put it when its done. I don’t have any space for a 6 foot long cabinet, but I really want to build one. So I started drawing and looking at pictures of credenzas online. A credenza is basically a low, wide cabinet that is mostly used these days as living room furniture, often below the TV. My first design looked like this: ...

Process #2: Process: Farm Tables With David Ellison

1516 days ago by Etsy | 6 comments »

New England is a corner of the United States rich with tradition. David Ellison, known on Etsy as lorimerantiques, and to many of his Providence, Rhode Island neighbors as The Lorimer Workshop, builds furniture steeped in such tradition. He is not only fascinated by the New England legacy, but also by how the simple styles of tables built by farmers have evolved in different regions. While his original enthusiasm for woodworking stemmed from restoring antique furniture as a hobby, David’...

Handcrafted Wooden Rings

1811 days ago by FrankLad | 54 comments »

I received a couple of comments with regards to how I build the wooden rings in my gallery, so I thought this would be a good place to share a bit about my process. This will not be the best-worded blog entry. I’ll just kinda let my mind spill… My very first rings were done in the bentwood style, which involves some trial-and-error, custom jigs, a great amount of patience and an even greater amount of time to achieve the contrast similar to the rings done in the layered sty...

Messed up chisels: Or how I learned to stop worrying and Love the grinder

1834 days ago by marcb | 4 comments »

I picked up a couple old chisels recently and last weekend got off my butt and for the first time used the power grinder to get an initial angle on them. I’m an old woodworking machine guy, but I have a newish little Craftsman grinder. I don’t have any fancy white wheels a nice stand with a cup for quenching or a super deluxe tool rest. I just plugged it in and got to work. This is the first time I ever ground an edge on a power tool of any kind. So if I can do it, anyone c...

Hand Tool Skills #1: My Journey Towards Proficiency

2281 days ago by Jeff | 9 comments »

“My Journey Towards Proficiency.” That’s a lofty statement, isn’t it? Let’s just say it’s a goal I have the intention of reaching at some level, some day. There seems to be a lot of chatter about hand tools in the world of woodworking lately and I am glad it is occurring. As most of you probably know, this can be a decidedly partisan discussion. I don’t want to get into that type of discussion because a person’s tool choice really comes down to what makes them happy and gets th...

Haunted Forest TWO routering

2377 days ago by Dan'um Style | 11 comments »

Forgot how messy a router is. Mahogany machines like butter.Photos are the project with one section roughed in … deepest section … about 3/8 depth using 1/2 router bit.A section with the poster glued on and the tools I’m using, less the dust collector. As mentioned in Marc’s blog … Bought a 1/8 down spiral do some detail work. One thing I didn’t plan for was the paper wants to lift up next to the router bit. My work around is scoring the drawing with ...

Haunted Forest TWO start to finish ... artwork to ebay ... stoneware tile frieze from wood to stone

2382 days ago by Dan'um Style | 9 comments »

Inspired by Mark’s blog on his Sandzen inpired wood carving … thought might try one myself. The idea for Haunted Forest TWO. Photo I digitally edited on my laptop. Layered a couple photos, grayscaled , rescaled, stretched, deformed, negative and pixelated …. This is a challenge to myself. I have never made a carving this big, nor will I use the exact same methods that I have used in-the-past. Hope to learn a few new tools and teach myself a few new tricks via ...
