Woodworkers get some "tough guy" respect (ha ha)

03-14-2012 02:21 PM by ScottMorrison | 13 comments »

Hellofellow LJ’ers. A few years ago, Gerber Legendary Knives shot a TV commercial, and in a moment of pure lunacy, decided to include yours truly in the advertisement. The “tough guy” attitude shown in the video is pretty ironic, as anyone who knows me understands what a big baby I truly am. I once got a splinter and cried about it for 2 days (I can show you the scar, if you want). Enjoy the vid.

Canoe Paddle #3: Up the Creek with a Finished Paddle

03-10-2012 04:18 PM by Bagtown | 5 comments »

So, here we go.This will be the final chapter to this series.When we left off the paddle blade and shaft were somewhere between roughed and semi finished.The next step is a little slower. At least for me it is.The handgrip.Excuse the poor photography, but here is what were starting with for the handgrip. You get the idea. We’re starting with just a roughsawn blank.I think if I had been a little slower and used just a little more care at the bandsaw stage, then I wouldn’t have s...

Half scale Bombe # 3

03-09-2012 01:13 PM by KPW | 4 comments »

Got some more pics of the progress on the chest. Draw bottoms,draw sides and backs. Started on the feet. I cut them on my trusty old craftsman jig saw. The curves were too tight to do it on the band saw. I,ll probably go through 6 or 7 blanks before I get 4 that I like. Ball and claw in this scale is tuff. Not giving up yet but may have to go with just a simple cabriolet foot. Wish me luck.

Canoe Paddle #2: On to the shaft

03-02-2012 04:13 PM by Bagtown | 2 comments »

So for this installment we’ll rough and semi finish the shaft and semi finish the blade.So I turned the blade over and roughed that side out. You see in the next shot that again the centreline on the face of the blade is still there. The focus in this next shot is a little blurry but hopefully you get the idea. It’s an end view of the blade. You see that the crossection is sort of diamond shaped. You’ll also notice that mine is a little off, but I can fix that later as...

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...
