Tongue Drum Journey #1: What's gone wrong?

1546 days ago by albachippie | 3 comments »

I wanted to make a tongue drum for a friend who is a musician. I wasn’t too bothered about the tuning etc, I just wanted to try out something new. He could use it as a paper weight if nothing else!! The problem is it is barely audible. The construction is 3/4” oak top with 3/8” mahogany sides and a 1/4” ply bottom. This is based on a plan I found on the Portercable site (posted on this site somewhere, but can’t find it now!). Some questions about this proj...

Wood Gear Clock

1569 days ago by HighRockWoodworking | 10 comments »

I have always had a fascination with how things work. As a kid I drove my parents’ crazy taking things apart but it was part of learning. Even today I will look at something a wonder how it was made or how it works. For most things I believe that if someone else can do it then so can I, now I am not saying that I am smarter than anyone else, I believe for the most part that all of us can figure most things out if we try. Around a year ago I was looking at a pendulum clock, I have always...

Routing Inlays #1: TWO CELTIC PATTERNS SIMPLIFIED

1571 days ago by Maclegno | 14 comments »

INTRODUCTION.. When I started experimenting with using my router for inlays I thought only in the context of straight lines since that was what routers did best. Unfortunately my tastes in designs included Celtic Art especially Knot-work which is mostly curves. These would obviously need some sort of template to guide the router. A cursory inspection of a typical Celtic Knot suggests that they are too complex for a simple template. However a closer examination and study convinced me that s...

Adventures in Starting a New business #1: Before the beginning

1609 days ago by TwistedRedneck | 2 comments »

Well, been thinking about it and now I think it is time to take that first step. Pimping woodworking skills out that is. I have had experience owning and running my own business as a Truck Driver and my parents have experience owning and operating a multi county Ambulance service so I think I have the knowledge that is needed to start a new venture like this. I found a book at Goodwill specifically for making money with woodworking that I read and it helped supercharge my desire to follow ...

RESAWING #1: SAVING MYSELF FIFTY BUCKS PLUS

1723 days ago by threehands | 4 comments »

I’VE BEEN RESAWING FOR SOME TIME NOW WITHIN THE LIMITS OF MY SAW. I HAVE A JET 14” BANDSAW. I WAS ORIGINALLY LIMITED TO ITS STANDARD HEIGHT MEANING I COULD ONLY RESAW A BOARD WHICH WAS AT MAX SIX INCHES HIGH. THIS WAS VERY TIME CONSUMING WHEN TRYING TO GET A BOARD SAY 15” WIDE BUT 1/2” THICK. MOST OF THE STOCK I USE IS AT LEAST 1” THICK. I WAS TIRED OF WASTING THE OTHER 1/2” OF WOOD BY PLANING IT OFF TO GET THE THICKNESS I WANTED. I COULD RESAW IT THINN...
