ATTN OKLAHOMA WOODWORKERS!!

05-10-2017 02:49 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...

Honey locust bench. #3: First epoxy glaze coat.

04-03-2017 06:46 PM by mchapman87 | 1 comment »

So Saturday afternoon once I had gotten home from work I decided to go ahead and put my first glaze coat on my bench top/seat. I didn’t measure the approximate square footage of my piece and just guessed at how much epoxy to mix up. I did 6oz of Famowood Glaze coat, and poured it along my surface. Using a bondo spatula that I modified to have a corrugated edge, I was able to spread the epoxy out without pushing too much around at once. The teeth of the spatula I made really ...

Hand plane restoration

In this video I restore a Belknap bluegrass block plane. I believe that it belonged to my great, great grandfather (my grandfather’s grandfather. I believe that it was made in the 50’s. so not really that old by hand plane standards, but I had a blast restoring it and learned some good skills. https://youtu.be/GneTY8fCDRs

Loft Bed Additions #1: Bark Trim Shelf

03-01-2017 04:04 AM by chrisjhennessy | 0 comments »

My sons loft certainly has creative shelving and amazing character. As I look up at the rafters, I see opportunity both in aesthetics and practicality. My plan is to add Walnut Live Edge trim to the bottom of the rafters, this is where the Loft meets the wall. If you look at these two Live Edge pieces, these 5’ pieces will fit right in the space under the rafters. The contrast will look great as a trim and the Walnut which will extend about 2” which will offer a catwalk pla...

Honey locust bench. #1: The start of my outdoor bench.

02-08-2017 04:51 PM by mchapman87 | 1 comment »

So I am finally getting started on making a few new pieces out of my small garage woodshop. Money has been tight and I haven’t been able to get the wood I need to fiddle around with. I was given a load of rough milled lumber from a friend who is just learning how to use his mill. Most of the pieces are not flat, pretty wavy but are fairly thick. This helps because I can take off some material flattening the pieces, making them useable boards. He didn’t charge me an...

Miter Saw Stand from Reclaimed Wood

01-22-2017 12:21 AM by ShaunMeighan | 1 comment »

Hello all! So for this weekend’s project, I decided to make a handy stand for my miter saw. It’s very simple construction but it’s solid and does the job. I also added a trash bag on the inside to give the stand a second function. A third function is that the rails on the side can be used for clamp storage!In the future I will probably add castors to the base so that it can be easily moved around my small shop.Thanks!View on YouTube YouTube
