Carving a small spoon

04-16-2014 04:10 PM by filiplaw | 3 comments »

I had a small piece of pine laying around and a free afternoon so I decided to carve another spoon. I wanted it to be small (somewhere between a teaspoon and a tablespoon) and simple in shape. I traced around some plastic spoon I had in my kitchen and altered the handle shape a bit. With the outline ready I went to work. I made some stop-cuts with a saw and bashed out the waste with a 20mm chisel. I also did the same to the underside since the stock was way too thick for a spoon.I find ...

Doweled Chair Repair #2: First Steps of Regluing

03-31-2014 01:10 AM by DrDirt | 7 comments »

Well – as one can expect, there are always some unanticipated setbacks. Started off this morning, to glue the back together. First I carved grooves in the dowels, so that there would not be a problem with the dowel holes filling with glue and the back not coming together. I double checked the depths, and felt the 2 inch dowels I had cut might be long, so I trimmed them down by 1/8th inch. What I found… is I didn’t go far enough!!, so with hot glue spread, and...

Projects, the backstories #4: Cane in mystery red wood

03-25-2014 09:45 PM by PASs | 3 comments »

I use a lot of dunnage for my projects.It’s from freight shipped out of India and is usually some type of exhotic hardwood.Some pieces are a reddish hardwood. It has a very fine grain, is VERY hard, and every piece has cracks running down it.I have decided to only make mallets and other hard type things out of it.But I’d already cut a cane blank and decided to go on and make the cane. Besides I wanted to see how it turned out. I’d turned the blank to round a few weeks ago...

My Three Compasses

03-23-2014 11:53 PM by cpine | 2 comments »

For me, when someone makes a project that I have shared, it is the ultimate flattery. I hope the two youtube woodworkers feel the same as I make there designs of these fine tools for my shop. Special thanks go out to John Heisz and Peter Brown for providing plans and/or videos of these projects. Today I make three different designs of compass’s. I have needed a compass in the shop for a long time and some recent projects this need has arisen. SO today I am going to make three differen...

Projects, the backstories #1: Slotted coin displays

03-20-2014 04:00 AM by PASs | 4 comments »

One of my staples for sale at craft shows is slotted coin displays.They are fairly simple to make and I try to make them in batches so I have inventory without setting up too often to make them.All of them so far have been made from dunnage used to ship steel radio transmission towers from India to the US. Where we would use pine 2×4’s to brace freight this particular company used an assortment of mid/far east woods. From what I can see and surmise it is the off-cuts from the India...

Wands #2: The Elder Wand

03-19-2014 01:18 AM by PASs | 4 comments »

Since Bryan didn’t want a crooked elder wand I went back to the drawing board for a straight one.I went to the dowel bucked and found a piece of old draw-blind dowel.I chucked that in the lathe to make the straight wand. Since it was a straight turning project I use a spindle roughing gouge, spindle gouge, and skew to do the rough forming. Then I sanded to 320 grit, and applied a colonial stain. I decided to do the dremel dimpling after the first stain because I wanted to d...
