Day one

03-01-2012 02:11 AM by T. D. Reid | 4 comments »

I had to get on here tonight and post a picture of the legs for my eight year olds new bed. I am using a design from Wood Magazine that I have made one change too and that was the legs. If you have seen the plans for this bed they give you an option of bunking the bed and due to the ceiling height in his room I will pass on that. They cut out where the mortises are located for the rails and then laminated three boards together to get the finished 2 1/4 inch thickness. So my change is the use ...

Canoe Paddle #1: Starting to Make A Canoe Paddle

02-29-2012 06:02 PM by Bagtown | 8 comments »

Well, this is such a great and giving site, I thought I should contribute a little. So here you go. There’s still plenty of snow out on the lake but we’re only about 6 weeks away from open water on the lake and rivers around here. I’ve made a few paddles in the past, and this is how I make them. Nothing too fancy here, mostly handtools and lots of sweat. This is a very satisfying project, and it’s really not too difficult. There are no mating parts, no dovetail, no ...

Half scale Bombe Jewelry Box #1: First time Bombe

02-26-2012 05:26 PM by KPW | 7 comments »

Here are some prelim. pics of a 1/2 scale Bombe chest I’m attempting. I’m using the Fine Woodworking plan that’s in the Period Furniture book by Taunton Press. Had to take the 1/6th drawing and have it blown up to 1/2 scale by a local print shop. Cost $8. What a deal ! Made alot of mistakes so I’m glad I’m trying it out as a smaller version before attemting one full scale with expensive Lumber. I’ll post more pics as I go.

Blacker House Chair #1: Shaping the back leg.

02-25-2012 04:36 AM by Jeff Waggoner | 1 comment »

Where possible we used one leg to mark out the other. He then cut to that line on the band saw and smoothed it back to the line with a variety of hand tools. To get the twist in the leg that it needed to meet the crest rail he cut to a line on the top and was careful to hold it at an angle so as not to cut into it at the bottom. This established the two edges with a bump in the middle. He them covered that area with yellow chalk and tried to plane, scrap, spok...

Blacker House Chair #2: More progress on the Blacker house chair

02-21-2012 01:11 AM by Jeff Waggoner | 0 comments »

He now has the legs and the upper and lower stretchers done with the exception of shaping the top of the back legs. That can’t be done until we fit the crest rail. We worked on it for 12 hrs on Saturday and he cut the indent in the feet and shaped the tappers. To cut the tappers we had to make three different jigs and six different setups for all the different shapes. I had see in a book how to shape the tappers with a stationary sander but that was with square legs and on...

3 start rope with a 15' radi.

02-15-2012 05:41 PM by grosa | 3 comments »

Has anyone ever done a rope turning on a 15” or more radius ? I have been thinking about this for months. It can’t be done on the legacy mill. I don’t know if there is any other way other than carving it by hand. Do any of you talented wood workers know of a way to do this in a repeatable way ?

Model Bell 407 helicopter project #4: Sanding and shaping.

02-07-2012 04:51 AM by Ryan Haasen | 2 comments »

In the last while, I have been sanding and shaping the helicopter. I did end up getting the pneumatic sander. It is the perfect tool for the job. I have probably spent 10 hours, but many more are to come. It is ver difficult to get it to the same shape of the real helicopter, it is still more square-ish then I would like it to be. Also just realized that the rear-bottom comes to a point, so a lot of material is yet to be removed. Thanks in advance for your comments.

Pine Root #1: Kickstart my pine root lamp and shade project...

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/182951744/to-the-root-of-things-glowing-pine-root-sculpture I’m hoping to turn these huge hulking remains of trees into some awesome stuff. I will try to keep this blog updated, especially if I get funded and get to launch my project. I really love working with non-traditional materials.
