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.

BEYOND THE BASICS- Taking your woodwoking to the next level #1: Building a new mindset -- 3 tools needed to be a better woodworker

01-27-2012 07:16 AM by chidwickschool | 10 comments »

Teaching a seminar at The Woodworking Show in Portland, OR I know I am somewhat new to Lumberjocks, but I can already see that this forum is a gold mine of support, inspiration and community—my kind of people! It is therefore, my desire to do my part in this group of like-minded friends, by starting off an extensive educational series I’ve recently prepared entitled: “BEYOND THE BASICS—Taking your woodworking to the next level” The series will include many ad...

Wooden hand plane #1: Wooden Hand Plane

01-23-2012 06:03 PM by theSawdustSurfer | 2 comments »

I had just finished a pastryboard to my wife. and had nothing to do. I looked around the shop to see if there was something i could build. A few months ago i bought some pieces of oak to my kitchen project but i saved one of the pieces for special occations/projects. The grain was tighter and the weight was heavier than the other pieces. I saved it wanted to make something nice and useful of it. I decided to make a hand plane, Krenov style. I realize that oak is not the optimal wood for...

Making a Texas Star

01-15-2012 04:56 AM by iltws2 | 19 comments »

I would like to start out by saying the projects listed on this site really show some of the best talent and creativeminds ever amassed on one website. Makes me jealous. Any way I have been asked to show how I make a Texas Star, so I decided to share this with everyone. There are a few things you need to make before starting. First thing is to make a pattern making fence for your table saw. It is real simple. I usually make mine 4-6 inches wide out of 3/4”plywood. Rip a scrap piece o...

Hand tool revalations #3: curves and tenons

01-14-2012 07:08 PM by Andrew | 6 comments »

Well, the temperature in MN has turned to normal for this time of year, from the 40s to the teens, and working in my garage has slowed a bit. On top of that both my wife and a friend have asked for other projects, which of course, I am happy to put in line after this one. But it is cold in the garage (workshop) and metal planes rob heat from the hands faster than a politician with a sweet tooth grabbing a lollipop from a child! Progress must continue. So I will start work on the apron, I ...

Dart Board Cabinet #1: Every project is an opportunity to learn

01-13-2012 05:23 AM by Willeh | 2 comments »

The wife and I have recently gotten into playing darts as a hobby. We’ve been playing in our basement on an old dart board that I inherited from my dad housed in a ratty cabinet that looks aweful. Im currently in a lul for projects as it is now cold outside and my garage/workshop is unheated and uninsulated and its too cold to work in at this time of year most of the time as any project of size requires having the garage door open to wheel out the table saw to have enough room to wor...

Today started pretty much like most days do…. a couple of cups of coffee then its off to see what I can get into.As I was drinking the first cup, the eyes started opening up and I began to think about the Gator stock. By the second cup I was wide awake and off I went.The air compressor is fully charged and the Shofu rotary tool is serviced and ready as well. I began by stripping the rest of the finish off of the emblem so I could detail it. After all the finish was removed I then detail...

Hand tool revalations #2: Stanley No. 48, new to me

01-11-2012 05:25 AM by Andrew | 6 comments »

The top, I decided to assemble this with tongue and groove joinery, I have a Stanley 48, this is the plane that started the madness.it has 2 cutters, and a pivoting fence. With the fence one direction it cuts a groove, swing it 180 degrees and it cuts the tongue. The plane will center on 7/8” thicknessed wood, but one tip… make a decision, either the fence is always on the face of the peice or the back, and stick with it. If you flip back and forth, it will cause the face of y...

Watch Box #6: Handle replaced, shaping started

01-11-2012 12:07 AM by Andy | 27 comments »

The handle.I did not like how the handle was looking, it appeared to lack any of the swirling grain that the top inset panel has. That happens sometimes after shaping, the good stuff ends up on the floor. Also… if you look close, you will notice in the picture below that I sanded too deep into the right corner of the handle and exposed the spline! Oops! So I made a new one from Black Palm Wood, a first time for me. The black color ties in with the Wenge corner splines, plus I love ...
