Acoustic Guitar #2: The back and ribs.

10-01-2012 08:27 PM by YorkshireStewart | 10 comments »

For this, my first effort, (that suggests there’ll be at least a second!) I’m using some pieces of sapele that have been lying around for some time. Bending iron by Heath Robinson or Rube Goldberg! To Part Three

Sweet Chest of Drawers Build #4: Joining the sides on the top

11-29-2012 09:53 PM by Kyle | 3 comments »

I don’t know if it’s a mistake or not to do it this way but, I decided to join the sides together just like I did on the sides themselves. I’m not sure this will create any kind of ultimate weakness or not but, there was enough stock in the legs to do dovetails for both of the rails.....Here’s the first cut. Tail first….......These look pretty good to me........Now to chop out some the housing for the dovetail….......chop chop chop…........Very snug f...

Vintage Seigh for Christmas

11-20-2008 09:36 PM by Karson | 12 comments »

I had seen this vintage sleigh in Wood magazine some time ago and I had to go searching to find it again. It was in December 1997, Issue 101 I believe that I’ve seen it somewhere else but I didn’t want to buy the article without searching further. One of the new officers at the Woodworking Club thought he might have it. He did and he brought the magazine to me and i scanned it and created a pdf for future use and to keep from cutting up his magazine. The sleigh was found at ...

Launching the Tünr Dresser

10-08-2011 08:48 PM by Jacquelyn Smith | 3 comments »

for more pics check out my blog here! My client, Jeffrey, and I imagined, designed and built the first point of purchase (pop) product display unit for tünr last summer. Tünr was the imagination of my brother Jeffrey coming to life as he dreamed, planned, proposed, organized and made crucial decisions. He had this idea; “Fine Tune Your Feet”. This is what he called tünr the sock and lace company that is now launched on the Internet and in street boutiques across the country. He approach...

Visit to KenCraft Company

10-24-2008 02:15 AM by Greg Wurst | 5 comments »

I had a day off and decided to head up to Toledo to get some red oak at KenCraft Company (www.kencraftcompany.com). I had asked about shipping it to me south of Dayton and shipping would be about $80. So, I decided to just make the trip and see what they had. An excellent selection and very good prices. I picked-up 50BF or Red Oak, a couple nice pieces of Sapele for a full-length mirror for the inlaws, and a $5 box of random scraps that are great for small projects. Worth the trip and I&...

Sapele side table progress

12-21-2008 02:12 AM by Greg3G | 15 comments »

Ok…I was thinking of doing some stringing or inlays on this but after talking with my wife about where we wanted to put this, I let that idea go. I wanted to keep it a bit less formal. This series of photos are after the glue up and with one coat of Karson’s Oil/Poly blend recipe. It is still just a bit on the damp side. The top is not attached at this point. I will probably give it one more coat of the oil/poly blend then give it 3 or 4 coats of shellac and rub it out. I want ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #89: Back to the Shop!

08-31-2010 01:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Sometimes I am just like a child. I guess that age has nothing to do with maturity, does it? Here I was yesterday, doing what I was supposed to be doing (drawing) and my partner called that he got off of work early. By early, I mean it was about 2pm. He asked if I wanted to head to Bernie’s and re-saw that wood we got on Friday (I guess he is a child, too!) and it took me about half a second to answer YES! I have been thinking about all those beautiful wood pieces since we got ba...

Celtic NOT - a journey

12-22-2011 06:01 PM by BritBoxmaker | 19 comments »

This is the blog of how I built Celtic NOT. The design is one of a recent series of overlapping circle designs. Originally there were two possible patterns These are the original paper models. As you can see the more complicated of the two had an interwoven line on the sides of the box as well. I eventually decided this pattern looked a bit too busy and opted for the simpler of the two. The box was going to be Oak with Sycamore and Walnut stringing. I initially tried making t...

Clipboard #1: WHERE'S ME CLIPBOARD!

09-29-2010 01:13 PM by BritBoxmaker | 28 comments »

As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before I do a fairly mundane day job, stacking shelves. One of the main tools for this is a clipboard, to hold my picklist. It invariably goes missing. Either I leave it in a trolley somewhere or, worse still, somebody ‘borrows’ it without asking. Hence the cry ‘Where’s me clipboard!’. The use of ‘me’ instead of ‘my’ is a dialect feature of East London and Estuary English which, along with commeritis,...

Walnut Beds #1: The Rough Stuff

12-28-2009 09:36 PM by Andy Brownell | 3 comments »

I’ve started a new project over the last couple of weeks. It’s two solid walnut beds (Full Size) for each of my kids.I’m making two different styles, heavily influenced by Thomas Moser’s New Century China bed and American Bungalow beds. I’ve worked on other beds in the past including a Pencil Post bed I made as a wedding gift to my wife about 10 years ago. This was after working on some projects for Jeff Miller of J. Miller Handcrafted Furniture. He published ...
