Rare markings

03-11-2015 01:13 AM by Boatdude | 5 comments »

These are a couple of the bowls I have made from a Black Gum Log. To me I think it turns great. I was told the tree had been down for 2 years but I have my doubts it was pretty wet still and the bowls warped after turning. This is my first post to lumberjocks so I would like to say HELLO !

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1509: Product Review - Makita BO3710 Finishing Sander

03-03-2015 01:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It's sunny outside and looks to be a beautiful day. I can see the tops of the trees along the riverbank swaying in the breeze though, so I am certain that although it looks warm outside, it is a bit deceiving. As we work our way into March, I am thinking that it is more 'lion-like' than 'lamb-like' and that we will just have to have a bit more patience for milder weather. In all honesty, this winter has gone by very quickly. Perhaps the reason that I am not so annoyed with...

Dowelmax is a 5 star toolMy journey to building (making a joint that will last!) led me to the Festool Domino, but then I came across the joint of “dowels”. HmmmmI watched the videos on www.dowelmax.com Very well presented by the owner and creator. Here is what sold me: Money back guarantee, the test results comparing dowels to tennon, biscuits … Ease of use: You will get a paper instruction booklet and video. It will explain/show to you many and I mean many types of situations of dowel...

The value of your work! Boy, did I ever underestimate woodworking's value.

01-12-2015 08:00 PM by Oldtool | 8 comments »

I frequent antique dealer’s web sites, to view American period furniture for new project ideas. Recently I came across a rather interesting piece, a chair that I find quite rustic for the price asked. But hey, who am I to judge the value. I guess we are in a seller’s market where handcrafted furniture can command what the buyer will bear.To see what I mean, visit this site to see a $3,000.00 chair: bridgesovertime.com/mauro-mori-handmade-rose-albitia-chair-cappellini/ OK, I s...

Finishing Process of Interest #1: Chemical Ebonizing

01-07-2015 01:36 PM by pjones46 | 4 comments »

A while back, I put together a set of links of random finishing topics which I posted in my blog, called Finishing Tips #5: Finishing tips #5. One of the links listed coved the topic of Chemical-Ebonizing as I saw an interest from some concerning the procedure, so this is the time to single out that process. This process does not use dye, ink or paint, and can be carried out quite easily. As a matter of formality follow proper safety precautions such as wearing safety glasses, hand prot...

2014 - the long and short year

12-23-2014 09:24 PM by Nighthawk | 0 comments »

What a year… It has both been a long year and a short year… confusing I know, basically it seemed like a very short year work wise it just whizzed by. But on the flip side a long year that seem to drag on at home with the major project the bar. At one stage I thought I wasn’t going to get it to a usable stage for xmas and new year due to water proofing it, then other little things hampered my efforts including motivation and a little depression. My pride and joy motorcycl...

Epilog Laser Projects #2: Before You Buy A Laser

11-29-2014 05:40 PM by philphoto | 10 comments »

Before You Buy A Laser—There are three things to consider when selecting a laser: Size Matters. A lot! The larger the bed the more copies of a piece you can make saving reload time. Also, many jobs need to be produced on a larger bed laser. The 18” X 24” is fine for a large percentage of the market. Some of the higher priced cabinet doors, skateboard decks, and furniture need to have a large bed laser. If I had it to do over, I would have purchased the largest unit Epilog makes...
