In this youtube video https://youtu.be/jzKNAKfbRBk, I got “Challenged” to make Nun-Chucks by Mike from the You-tube channel Kinderhook Woodcraft. Here is a link to his channel:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQA2XFGZtPJdbmi8I-9X1-g And a link to the challenge video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32g8mq-DEwk This was a fun project to build. And for those who would ask, when hitting the apples my stats were: 5 overall swings – 4 hits – 3 were solid hits and on...
Hi folks! So, having broken my faithful mallet, I set out to make a new one out of some hardwood stretchers that I reclaimed from a pallet. View on YouTube
View on YouTube Hello everyone! As I have declared myself the designated woodworker in my household, I am getting all sorts of home improvement jobs. Today, my parents asked me to refinish the tops of their bedside dressers. I thought I would talk through what I do to refinish things, and maybe you guys could learn something and/or offer some tips! While the main body of the dressers is generally alright, the top surfaces are in rough shape. Glasses of water and cups of coffee...
In this video, I make a WoodCraft knife blank. Real easy project, but really fun to complete. Please enjoy the video. https://youtu.be/c_uopLMXa34
I finally finished the Dining room suite last weekend: I thought that this would have been an easy project that I would have flipped off in a week or two at the most, but it took much longer. Buying somebody else work and then finishing it to your standard´is all very well and good if you know the other person has done a good job, but in this case… Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think we will have any problems with it coming apart, but the method of construction leave...
I made this machine based on plans from printingplans.com, anyway if you note some differences with the plans, it is because after a time working on it, I have made some changes in the dimensions of the parts and some reinforcements to improve the printings on other materials such as wood, for example. This is a really versatile machine to make a lot of screen printing projects with great results, it can works with different materials as papers, fabrics, leather, wood and other porous mate...
Lately my chisels have been strewn around my bench. They had no place to go and kept falling onto the floor, dulling the edges. I got tired of this and so decided to make a chisel rack from whatever wood I had lying around. https://youtu.be/_vWWgS4DFSg
Well, got the armrests done.. The square part didn’t ake all that long to chop out. The round hole? Forstner bit. So, when the armrest settles down over the tenon on the top of the front post, the post will get “housed” in the round hole….more places to add glue. I also chopped a mortise in each of the rear posts. Armrest would then slip into that mortise, and onto the tenon. I drilled a through hole through that rear post, in the center of the mor...
Today I made my top by glueing 3 pieces of oak together and sanding it. I did have some tribe making this because it would not fit in the planer so I had to use the handsander to sand it which took much longer. I also made my chore, and to do it, I used the dove cutter and glued the pieces together. I fitted the bottom in and put the false chore front on it and put the handle in. I sanded it and now it looks great in my end table.
Got out the chisels, clamped a rail to the bench, and chopped awhile.. Made to match the tenon. Some of the tenons were a bit too fat. Thinned them down a bit, then marked the rail to fit. Depth was around 1” deep…..as each mortises was chopped and fitted, I kept marking them, to tell which end went which way. Test fits.. Once I got all the mortises chopped, got the clamps and glue out…..fight was on! The rail in the vise wasn’t so bad to do, it was t...
