View on YouTube As we all know woodworking involves a lot of sanding, and that makes a lot of dust in the air. So yesterday I found an old extractor, it was from my growroom but still works. I made a box with joinery, painted the fan black and as usual gave it a mahogany finish, I think it makes a nice contrast, what do you think??
not sure if this link showed up but I tried pasting it from my Facebook page. If not, you can just go to the page. I will be adding more as I finish them. www.facebook.com/piddlinchic I’ve been having fun with these knives. Recycling “trash” has it’s own rewards. I could probably do a better job and save a lot of time by buying steel stock or precut knife blades, but this is much more fun and challenging.
The pews have now been broken down ready to be taken to the stripping facility. Theoretically the chemicals should enhance the natural appearance of the wood but i have everything crossed just in case things don’t turn out quite as expected. I will know by the end of next week just how much usable timber I have.
Hello Readers! Well from the title of this entry, you can probably guess what this is about. Yes, Halloween has not even come yet; Yes, Thanksgiving is more than a month away! But I have learned that planning and starting now will give me the time I need to get the projects done. Why wait until the snow is falling and the bitter cold bites? So what will I be building? Well that is a secret and I will post all about them on December 26th and 27th. I don’t want any gift receivers to...
Was inspired by the Randall Price series on building a tenor acoustic guitar and figured my wood working skills had reached the point where I could attempt a guitar, albeit an electric one. I’m slightly obsessive about using recycled wood whenever I can and am often going through people’s old furniture where I have salvaged some quite nice wood over the years. This time around a friend was throwing out an old beat up kitchen table while I was helping her move house. It seemed...
Hello Readers! Just a quick update: I got plans for the maloof chair, so I will be studying these extensively for my build. My wife has been perusing pinterest and the internet and has stumpled upon a few DIY pallet creations that she loves and wants me to recreate. Well its safe to say I am at no shortage of projects now… Here are a few of the projects she has in mind (more at my blog, I could not fit them all in this post): Now you might have noticed if you read m...
So at first I was only going to post this as a completed project, but I felt that in order to keep from saturating that post with too many photos, I would also post this as a blog. Plus it might inspire me to add a bit of dialogue about the process. This is the completed project. This is the space that I started with. So I have a pretty small house with a fairly small kitchen, in which we have my girlfriend’s table and four chairs. The problem we were running into is that when ...
Bellow is a excerpt of an article that I wrote on my website. To view the whole article visit the link bellowhttp://jordswoodshop.com/2011/11/article-salvaged-timber/ Excerpt 149 of 507 wordsMore often than not my projects are made entirely of salvaged timber. This of course is by choice, but last night while I was talking to a lady, my passion for furniture making somehow came up in conversation, and she asked me about what pieces I have made. As I enthusiastically got into the conv...
Continuing from yesterday Shutter and Pallet Wood Cupboard - Part 1 I’m going to dry fit the sides and back in order to measure for the shelf and bottom. As you can see, this is like putting a puzzle together, it’s very creative and mathematically challenging, two things I enjoy! I need to put dadoes in the sides and back where the middle shelf and bottom panel will be. I am using my 3/8” diameter router bit and my router table. The middle shelf groove is ab...
