Polishing Humility: Reclaimed Wood Projects

04-30-2013 08:56 PM by DustinTN | 2 comments »

(The following is reposted from my personal blog, Toward Simple. You can view the original post by clicking here.) Finally, I have finished a couple of small woodcraft pieces made from reclaimed objects. I forgot just how fulfilling it is to work with little more than a few pieces of wood, limited tools, and one’s own hands and imagination. I’m beginning to think of the salvaged materials I’ve been gathering – wooden pallets, fenceposts, etc. – as small to...

Adirondack chair: part 2

02-10-2012 11:29 PM by Hopman | 2 comments »

Thanks maricamp for the nudge to do an update on my progress with the chair. It’s definitely coming along. I’d say I’m about 90% done actually, and it has been a lot of fun watching this take shape. I’ve made some mistakes along the way, thankfully none of those mistakes have been unrecoverable. If/when I make another one of these, I’ll be able to do it MUCH faster. I took lots of care sanding the most visible surfaces like the back of the chair, the top of th...

Lilac Lamp #3: Tripod all in a twist

03-11-2007 12:19 AM by scottb | 2 comments »

Having successfully burned out my Dremel, I went for the cordless drill as well as my chisels. Judging by the amount of wood i still had to go through, I’d have likely killed another dremel in the process! I guess they are made for lots of different jobs, not so much hogging off wood for extended periods. I’ll definately be looking into those carving tools Dick suggested. Didn’t take too long to get all three legs liberated from each other, was tricky with the “can...

Butchers block kitchen island

05-01-2013 05:55 PM by inchanga | 2 comments »

I recently got a 6 foot length of sycamore which I cut in half in order to make a chopping block/table 3 foot by 2foot. Even after cutting in half the boards were so badly twisted that I had to split them length ways in order to flatten and plane them without removing too much material . The picture above shows the boards sawn ready for jointing and planing. I first of all flattened one face on the jointer and then put them through the thicknesser to achieve a consistent t...

Driftwood table #1: Slow progress

08-09-2011 02:16 PM by peterrum | 2 comments »

Well this story starts out while flyfishing on the Kettle River last year in August. While taking a break on shore I found a unique piece of driftwood which was a stump with some of the roots entwined around rocks. It looked like a very interesting piece and thought that I will try to get it home and figure out what to do with it after a bit of thought. Here are some photos of my find in the shop. Well after a few hours and months of thinking about it and getting input f...

Pallet Craft #23: She found the staircase!

09-28-2012 04:00 PM by Ethan Harris | 1 comment »

Hello Readers! Well my daughter is 6 months old now, and she found the staircase this week…(no worries, we stopped her advancement up them) So I will be building a set of upper and lower staircase gates for her protection against nasty spills. I put together this mockup for the design. As usual this will be made from pallet wood and will be featured on my Pallet Craft blog. But alas! I acquired a block plane! And I am very happy with how it changes the way the wood looks...

My first coffee tables. #1: Evolution of first coffee table

01-30-2012 06:49 PM by coldsneak | 1 comment »

The first version of the coffee table include corner built legs. Two 1×4’s screwed and glued up at right angles with the bracing side curved in 3 inches above the floor. My more intelligent better looking half did not like the legs so I had to redo them. My style is called rustic. The entire table top is made from deck boards 5/8×6 by 35. The boards were rough sanded then biscuit joined and glued. Now the legs are 19” x 5 1/2” x 3 1/2’ landscape timber cut...
