5 Knives #5: Your Decision... Pick a handle..

09-17-2012 04:15 PM by AJM | 4 comments »

I would like a simple comment please. Pick A Pic. I did not take a photo of bird cherry 2 but you can pick this as well. Each layer will have a strip of black leather between it like the first picture. Pictures did not come out to well but i hope you get the idea on how they would look. A large piece of bird cherry has been selected for the butt. All fellow members of Lumberjocks have to do is decide over the next day or so what design they would like to see incorporated in to th...

5 Knives #3: Preparing the blanks

09-15-2012 09:14 AM by AJM | 3 comments »

Here are a few photo’s of how i prepared 2 of the blanks although the stainless steal blank broke the m6 die.hopefully i have a solution to this and it will no longer be an issue on the other 2 ss blanks.With the carbon blade i die’d the end first to fit an m6 nut. i use this to help keep the knife clamped together. I have heard stories of the epoxy lasting a few years and the knife then simply putting it . fall apart. i feel the nut at the end is a good way of helping this...

Cutting a Triangular Obelsik

09-14-2012 01:31 PM by Jim Jakosh | 4 comments »

Lizzardhead, this one’s for you!!Dave once asked me if I could make a 3 sided obelisk. I have been thinking about it and I cut a scrap of spalted beech cut to a triangular shape and set it under the bench while I thought about how to hold it. I came up with this method to safely cut the triangular piece to the center point. I made an L shaped support from scraps and then fastened the bottom of the triangle to it with 2 screws.I first marked off the center of the triangle on the top a...

Teacher's Podium #1: The beginning...

09-14-2012 05:26 AM by MT_Stringer | 0 comments »

I am building a teacher’s podium for my niece as a college graduation present. She is currently teaching third grade in one of the local schools. My project has taken a lot longer than expected mainly because it has been so hot. I have recorded several temps in the 101 – 102 range during August. But finally, I got my split system air conditioner installed and up and running. Now my one car garage is a cool and constant 77 deg F. I had blown in insulation added (R38) to the atti...

Shadow Casting Lamp

09-12-2012 04:59 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 7 comments »

This shadow casting lamp creates a cool effect to any room by casting a shadow on a wall of any scene you’d like to create in the lamps silhouette panels. For this project I used horses. The front of the lamp shows a horse in a natural calm state on all 4’s . And the frosted front panel of glass gives a nice subtle tone of light to illuminate the room. The back of the lamp has a silhouette of a horse raring on it’s hind legs. This is the side that casts a shadow on...

DoDecaHedron Light Fixtures #3: Sanding is looking nice

09-09-2012 03:18 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 12 comments »

I’m actually rather surprised and and rather pleased about how the dodecahedron light fixture is coming. So much so that I want to take advantage of the grain showing through. I used poplar. Unfortunately I do have a little wood filler here and there and the inside is also filled. Any advice on what type of stain. In a ddition, can you provide some advice on sealing it. What ever I use will have to stand up to a little heat given it’s purpose as a pendant light.
