Foot rail for the bar...... #1: Bracket...

1367 days ago by degoose | 11 comments »

Had a mate want to add a foot rail… to his bar …to rest you foot on…... when standing at the bar.. I made these brackets out of New Guinea Rosewood…. just need to drill a 40mm hole to thread a 40 mm Tasmanian Oak dowel through… There are six of them … three for each side of the L-shaped bar. Made a template and then cut all of them on a bandsaw and smoothed them out on the oscillating spindle sander. As well as drilling holes I will need to roun...

Explorer guitar #1: A old project revived.

1445 days ago by Benighted | 3 comments »

Hi and welcome to my explorer guitar blog. This is a project I started 5 or 6 years ago when I found some mahogany in my fathers garage, I built the neck mostly by handtools, finished it with nitrocellulose laquer (which sadly has cracked in some places and is currently being stripped off). The neck is made of mahogany, a fretboard of indian rosewood, and the head veneer is also indian rosewood. The body will be made of mahogany, and the top is figured bubinga. I’ll post mor...

Amateur Hour #2: Nice weather = Not working in shop!

1449 days ago by agartzke | 0 comments »

Well, perhaps it was foreshadowing or some fancy trick, but I mentioned in my first (and last) post that the weather was starting to turn nice. I should have kissed the idea of woodworking over the summer goodbye right then… lucky for me I got the bug to start up again a bit earlier than expected. I spent maybe 12 hours in the shop over the two days of the weekend. It’s time to start finishing the projects that I have started, and to my chagrin, that total is currently four (ye...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #44: Not Really Woodworking (Kinda/sorta, but not really)

1472 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

As I woke up this morning and looked at the clock the first thought in my head was “oh, my!” It was already past 7. I don’t know why I have myself conditioned to get up so early, even if I am not pressed. Maybe it is because I have the most control of things early in the morning before everyone else gets up and things happen that disrupt the day. Those of you who read often know how much I love the quiet of the morning. Today, I am sharing it with Mozart and some Glen G...

Hand plane restoring #2: Restoring is addictive

1630 days ago by jchomme | 7 comments »

I guess this is kind of a venting process. Ive recently restored a few Bailey’s (#3 and 2-4’s) and its getting addictive. Ive cleaned some and Ive tuned some but putting a fresh coat of paint, polishing the brass, and refurbing the totes and knobs is very rewarding. Ive accumulated more baileys than I need, but when I see one I want to make it shine again(hopefuly better). Amongst other hand plane stuff I am “refurbing” my 4’s. ended up with a union in the ...

1663 days ago by degoose | 20 comments »

For the last few days at the end of last year ….LOL…I was very busy… I was designing a recessed base for my Lazy Larrys..I have just taken the time to post this….To start I have cut a circle of 5/8” plywood to mount the bearing.. this is roughly 300 mm or 12” in diameter as seen to the left in the first pic.This is accomplished by using the router to drill a hole in the centre.. the same size as the pin in the table. The hole is dropped over the pin and th...
