Building Jewelry Boxes with EZInlays #1: Adding the FishFry EZInlay to a box

354 days ago by KomputerMan | 0 comments »

I am in the process of building five different jewelry boxes as showcase pieces for a business I am trying to launch. All of the boxes are mirror images of each other except I used different types of wood on each one. This picture shows how the boxes looked a few days ago. Notice the one in the back with the TurtleSoup inlay??? Each box is getting its own decorative inlay built on it because that is what EZInlays.com sells, kits that will allow the average (and trust me on this my sk...

From log to box in less than a month #1: The kickoff

355 days ago by sras | 12 comments »

A friend at my church made me an offer: ”I’ll give you some wood if you’ll build something with it for the youth auction at the church” He made the offer several weeks ago, but I didn’t get around to picking up the wood until last Sunday! That gives me just under 4 weeks to take the wood, figure out a project, build it and finish it. That should be plenty of time, but my projects typically take months or years ! After pondering my choices, I picked these...

Medal Chest #11: The Lid, or, No Tablesaw, No Problem!

362 days ago by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Note to my readers—-this is the secret project I’ve mentioned a few times.  It has consumed my shop time since February.  That’s why it’s been so slow on the blog for the last few months.  Now that it has been delivered, I can post the details. Oh yeah, this post actually is the result of 6 days in the workshop—-some didn’t have pictures and I didn’t want to bore you with just text, so I put it all together under the title of The Lid. At last, w...

Spoon carvers diary #5: Something in the spirit of better days

367 days ago by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

After the recent events of the Boston marathon in some way there is a feeling of guilt I have continuing to share ideas and projects involving woodcraft. But I also think of things this way, I am a musician and woodworker. Whenever there is some tragic thing as national as all of this is for everyone to endure as a country, I can only do what I do best to help anyone feel a little normal again. Even if it is just for ten minutes. I don’t understand this time we live in, it is pret...

Finding the good in simple things

372 days ago by jjw5858 | 10 comments »

Lately I have been very fortunate to connect with many important artisans. All of this spoon carving business, website, and wood crafting has not only shown me things about myself, but has begun to show me the interest and support that other people can supply back onto me and this work I have been doing. I am very grateful for the positive communication. Thank you! It is nice to leave the daily news turned off and make some of our own positive headlines I think. Far too much negativity and...

Roubo #7: Details, Details

373 days ago by bondogaposis | 6 comments »

Time to get back to the Roubo build. I took a vacation to Mexico for 10 days and so my progress took a nose dive. I’m back at it now though. First thing I needed was to make a board jack. I wanted it to be 1 1/4” thick, I only have 8/4 stock that is 1 7/8” thick. So in order to rip it down I had rip both sides on the table saw and finish it off w/ a handsaw. If you want to know if your handsaw is dull try ripping through three inches of 1/4 sawn white oak. The rest ...

Base cabinet for pipe smoking cabinet #1: Putting plans together

374 days ago by BobInMidland | 1 comment »

My first project that I have posted is a 24×6x24 pipe smoking cabinet that holds (36) pipes. As shown below: Now its time to start on the base unit. I need storage for my pipe tobacco which is stored in a number of different sized and shaped containers. Mason jars of different sizes, round or square metal tins, gasket-lid jars, etc… That can be accomplished rather easily, I would think, with standard fixed or adjustable shelving. I also need storage for pipe cleaners, li...

Mortise and Tenon Black Walnut Picture Frame

376 days ago by molan | 6 comments »

I had been wanting to learn how to do Mortise and tenon joinery for a while now, but for one reason or another just hadn’t found the time. When my wife said she wanted a custom picture frame for a Disney puzzle she was building that she wanted to put in our daughters room I jumped at the chance. I came up with a simple but unique idea for a black walnut picture frame that was built using mortise and tenon joints instead of more traditional miter joints. I used 4/4 black walnut for the fram...
