Making a Wooden Pendant #1: My wood pendant process

08-15-2011 09:30 PM by S2artDesigns | 4 comments »

I figured I would put this out there in case anyone was interested to know what I do to make these wooden pendants. Its not complicated. Anyone can do it with their scraps. I personally like to use burl wood but if you have less figured wood you can pair it up with contrasting colors and shapes for a nice effect. ANYWAY, Picture time.I skipped the wood selection process in the photos. I was making this one for a friend and she picked the piece, marked the spot she wanted and then I took over...

The Rocking Alligator #3: Construction Notes

08-01-2011 04:38 AM by BentheViking | 0 comments »

The main body of the alligator is a box. My problem has been that I don’t have a planer or joiner so making a box with tight joints is rather difficult. I sanded them out a little bit, but ended up having to make the joints a bit rough and then puttying them. Puttying has become a big theme on this project. I had originally wanted to make this project super perfect with tight joints and whatnot. My problem is that with my impending move, I am having to rush through things. It kind of...

Like working with walnut burl veneer. Not a rush or rough job. ...

Turning Progress

07-10-2011 05:03 AM by thiswoodshop | 2 comments »

Today was a very productive day. I had a some time to ruff turn my big black walnut blank and put it on the shelve to dry completely. There also was some time to finish my walnut root bowl and the small cherry bowl. I’m still improving my skill set with every bowl that’s finish. I must say if I look back at the first day I started turning and successfully broke a tool whiles impaling a peace of test wood into my garage wall. I’m much more comfortable with the different speed of the lathe and ...

homemade disc sander

07-05-2011 07:49 AM by TRYPHON974 | 3 comments »

Sorry I had trouble with photobucketI made this disc sander 6 or 7 years ago. I put together a 2,5hp electric lawn mower motor, a 7” wooden disc and some metal plates. Ugly but effective: It was time for an overhaul, it’s now a pedestal 10” sander with a tilting rest. I just made a shaft coupling ( from an aluminum ingot I poured :D ) to make all the hand grinder’s accessories fit: For example with a flap disc (sort of): I will replace the switch by a pedal sw...

06-30-2011 02:41 AM by ScottMorrison | 8 comments »

Soon, I will be releasing a documentary on the evolution, history and the making of a Rocker Cradle. Although I’d love to take credit for the original concept, the idea was actually a bit before my time, circa 1700’s. Hope you enjoy the clip…
