Knives, making scales, different rivets, handles

05-25-2016 12:33 PM by dbray45 | 5 comments »

One of the things missing on this site is making knife scales. This is not something I normally do but I bought my wife some knives that required scales and during the process, noticed that we had several knives where the handles looked like crap, were cracked, and even broken. Some of them had really good blades and some were junk (these were tossed). During this process, the knives that I bought from Woodcraft have really nice blades but the rivets were less than desirable, sam...

Pipe Making #1: Introduction

05-18-2016 04:03 PM by MadMark | 1 comment »

This is a first draft of what should become a nice illustrated tutorial on making a pair of one piece pipes. The pipe making process is much more complicated and needs a lot of tools to make. Pipe making requires: Table saw Drill press (several bits) Band saw 4” Stationary Belt sander Oscillating Spindle Sander 1” belt sander 8” disc sander ROS sanding @ 120 & 240 Hand sand with sanding sponge At this point the pipe is ready for finishing. ...

Pens with no Lathe or Drill Press

05-15-2016 02:01 AM by ShogunJimi | 1 comment »

In this You-Tube video, I challenge myself to making a pen kit without a lathe or a drill press. But, let me be honest, I just don’t have those tools. The slim-line pen kits came from Rockler and they were on sale over the holiday season. The wood that was used is Cocobolo. I hope you enjoy this video and make time to be creative. here is the link to the video: – https://youtu.be/arWuNuZQBik

Walnut Slab Coffee Table #1: Constructing the Carved Tree Trunk Base

<div> <div>Get your own valid XHTML YouTube embed code</div></div> I am having a lot of trouble getting the video to look right in this blog! It looks wrong here and if you click full screen it looks even worse! If you REALLY want to watch it then it is best to click on the button to see it on YouTube. It looks fine there. Otherwise, well, you get the idea! If anyone knows the RIGHT way to embed videos then I would love it if you would ...

More working with Pine #3: Posts and rockers done

05-12-2016 04:00 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, been a day or two, i did get the second long post done. I also got the first short (front) post done. Drawknife and spokeshave work, then a lot of sanding. i did make one seat rail, as a pattern for the other two. Just a simple curve on the bandsaw. Spokeshave to clean up. Went to menards the other day, and bought a 5/4 thick piece of pine 5/4×4 x 8’. Figured I could use this for the rockers. Board is clear, straight and flat sawn. Turn it up on edge t...

Hand Tool Driven Lowboy Build

04-28-2016 01:15 PM by OrangeElk | 4 comments »

The following is intended to document my process for building a lowboy. The build is primarily done with hand tools but I did end up using power tools as the project got going. This build was for a independent study so I had access to the university lab’s machines. The lowboy I chose looks like a transition piece between William and Mary to Queen Anne. This low boy was featured in PWM by Glen Huey, but I never ended up reading the issue, I made the plans from pictures. Starting the p...

State Fair Series #2: From the Jaws of failure

04-24-2016 10:04 PM by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

Howdy, I spent some time yesterday laminating 2 wood choices together. Today I set myself up for some precision cutting. I didn’t use Klaus’ sled. You see I experimented over and over again getting my depth just right. My index was exactly 7/8 of an inch. Heck, half my time was spent on the math. I’m pretty sure most of my issues today are because I didn’t build a 45 degree sled with an indexer. I know the worst problems I had were because I didn’t buil...

Curved Front End Table #5: Maple Back and Curved Cherry Top

04-23-2016 11:52 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

In this episode, I make the back from some maple stock. The back is ship lapped and will be installed in a groove in the back legs I also make a solid cherry top with a curved front. Now I will say I completely screw up the first attempt by, well just being really stupid and not paying attention to what I was doing, and using the wrong bit in my router. I do show how I recover from this mistake in the end. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To keep up with what I’...
