How To: Bentwood Rings

1097 days ago by rance | 12 comments »

I started to tag this on to someone else’s project post but thought they might not appreciate me hijacking their thread. So here it goes: HOW TO BUILD A (BEGINNER’S) BENTWOOD RING:   1) Soak your thin veneer of choice in some water for a while. It doesn’t even have to be hot water.  2) Glue and wrap said veneer around a ‘thing’(preferrably a round ‘thing’) and let it dry. Go-Rilla glue works.  3) Remove it from the ‘thing&#...

How I made my Intersected cutting board

1281 days ago by GaryK | 31 comments »

Here is how I made my Intersected cutting board posted here. There seems to be a lot of interest in this board so here is a blog on how I made it. First of all here’s what I planned on making. It’s the top one. After I got both the circles intersected I liked how it looked with the rounded corners so I just added in the “wedge shapes”at the top and bottom and called it done. I think that it makes it very distinctive also. As one person guessed I ...

craft / handmade #3: Sold on Etsy

1820 days ago by scottb | 13 comments »

I stuck my toe in the Etsy waters some months back… just to see what would come of it. It seemed a better idea to partner with my 30 projects in 30 days ventures than posting in albums on facebook. I imagined that just having a presence could always leads to possibility… And this month feels like a small, but significant milestone was reached. 3 sales. Yes I know that doesn’t sound like much, but these three sales were to complete strangers. Not even friends of friends. O...

Cyanoacrylate wood finish?

1854 days ago by FrankLad | 23 comments »

I thought “What if I coated the whole ring in cyanoacrylate finish?” ...and I tried it. The rings have since been through regular everyday wear including dishwashings, handwashings and showers. END RESULT: This finish is holding up better than both Waterlox and Arm-R-Seal. And, in my opinion, it actually looks better. CAVEATS: Obviously, this would be difficult to do on anything but very small woodworking projects. It’s just right for these wooden rings, but ...

random #13: Bryan Nash Gill's Hemlock Relief Print

1949 days ago by Gary Fixler | 0 comments »

Artist Bryan Nash Gill has created a series of 12 prints in the traditional block printing style by inking the cross section of a very large stump of hemlock – from the mill next door to him – and then hand-rubbing large sheets of handmade paper into all the growth rings. The prints look beautiful, but at $4k/ea., I think I’ll make my own ;) Now to find a 3.5’ diameter chunk of hemlock… Some shots of the creation process[via Craftzine] And as way leads on t...
