Scroll portraits are becoming more and more popular this days. Many find them very striking and most unusual. It can serve as a very interesting one-of-a kind gift. When I saw them in the web for the first time, I felt the urge to learn how to make them. The process is shown in the link below. http://www.flickr.com/photos/edurink/sets/72157624851778690/
In this episode I show you all of the ins and outs on using hardwood edge banding. I had to pick up a new trim router so once I make the new base I will show that to everyone.
Ok, I have this sliding door that just wouldn’t slide smoothly through the slot in the wood! Grrr, this was a problem. It can’t work like this. There must be a better way. I was making sawdust pushing it in and out and that can’t be good… the slot – there’s two btw… The plans were none to clear, in fact they call for a wooden dowel. How long would that last before wearing out? So, I opted for the smooth shank on a 1/4” wood bolt. Hacked t...
I recently found this design video. The music is a bit dated. I thought folks here would appreciate a hands on design method. Notice the French curves and dividers…no autocad here! Follow the process of designing a bottle decanter from start to finish. Design story: The Decanter from Landor Associates on Vimeo.
Just thought I would post a little blog on how I mount a Live Edge Turning in order to finish off the bottom of the piece.

But when you want to finish off the piece, that live edge doesn’t give you anywhere to grip. I saw one of these mounts in the WoodTurnersCatalog.com Mine is a LOT cheesier design, but only cost penny’s to make. Started with a scrap of wood, a ...
Been wrestling with the problem of how to cut the miter angles on a curved top panel to a carcass with uneven side heights. The big problem are the curved nature of the panel and the fact that the angles are acute (past the 45 degree stop) and different on each side. Ended up building this adjustable jig. The slotted base lets me adjust distance from the blade, and the friction chest lid hardware the angle. I inked a line on the saw table with an ultra-fine Sharpie by registering a str...
I made some more progress on the morris chair today, I started work on the tenons. I am using a dado blade! I also got a tool gloat in the progress, I got a 6’’ Oshlun dado for $58.99 from Amazon.com.
Phase 1 of my new kitchen completed. This is another in the endless list of projects I’ve embarked on since starting my new home construction back in 2007 with the focus on providing all the labor, or as close to it as possible. The kitchen has been a long time coming, a lot of time spent in designing, drawing models and finally arriving at what I think I want;) Construction materials: Base cabinet boxes: V.C. Pre-lacquered 5/8” sheet stock.Door/Drawer faces: Curly sugar ma...
