“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” Zig Ziglar (1926 – )...Motivational author and speaker Miraculous Staircase of Santa Fe NMThe Miraculous Staircase of the Loretto Chapel located in Santa Fe New Mexico is an amazing piece of carpentry and woodworking. If this work of art were built today, the reaction of people would be the same as it was when this set of stairs was completed...

Rocking Chair Build #1: Stop wanting, and start doing!

09-13-2011 07:14 AM by Topapilot | 3 comments »

Hey gang! It’s been a while, but I’m back in the shop making scrap and creating a ton of dust. Over the years I’ve made bookcases and tables galore, all with straight lines and square corners. Then I started making some G+G pieces with rounded edges, cloud lifts, and ‘pillowed’ plugs. I’ve been wanting to continue this progression and make something with no straight lines at all: a Maloof-style rocking chair following the steps from Hal Taylor. Today...

Wooden clad cups #1: Wooden Coffee Cups, the complete tutorial.

08-29-2011 01:55 AM by Ghrrum | 5 comments »

I’m reposting this for all your benifit, if there are any problems with seeing the pictures please let me know so I can fix it. This should pretty well explain and show you how to make one of the cups below, with the exception of doing the hand carving or any lathe work. All that is necessary to make these is a table saw, sandpaper, chisel, and a hammer. Oh, and wood, you always need wood. I offered a couple weeks ago to try to do a tutorial on how to make a coffee cup like this. ...

"Wo kann ich Holz finden!?" or "Where can I find wood!?"

08-25-2011 05:02 PM by Ryan | 6 comments »

I’ve been desperate for anywhere to find wood, or Holz. I try and find simple wood and I can’t find any! I’m getting desperate! This is how low I’ve sunk. I currently was in the PX looking for some things for the kitchen, and I found aromatic cedar hangs. In my desperation, like Gollum, I snatched several up and clutched them to my chest as though someone was going to steal them from me. I feel like an addict, trying to find a fix.. HELP ME GET MY FIX!!! :D

Making a wooden cup, part 1

08-23-2011 04:38 PM by Ghrrum | 11 comments »

I offered a couple weeks ago to try to do a tutorial on how to make a coffee cup like this. The above is teak, it’s composed of 15 separate pieces. You build it like you would a barrel, just smaller. So, to start you need to find something that will work well as an interior sleeve, I’m partial to stainless so I keep my eyes peeled for any candidates when I’m out and about. I’ve found these work wonderfully and are cheap. Here is one out of the box. The real...

Attempting the.. well.. improbable

08-19-2011 06:06 AM by Ryan | 4 comments »

So, the woodworking fever has struck me. Unfortunately, it has struck me to make cases for EVERYTHING. Cigarettes, Zippos, Business cards, puzzle boxes, etc… This is my next project, once I have a bit of time. I recently destroyed (Pictures to follow) my iPod 4, 32g. I mean it bent in half. How it is still “working” is a mystery to me, but I can still access everything (as long as I remember the finger movements to find it, considering the screen is in a million piec...

New Handle for and Old Saw

08-12-2011 06:43 PM by Mauricio | 13 comments »

Here is my entry into the Western Hand Saw world. Until now I’ve used Japanese saws so I’m pretty excited to have this one. I finally found an old saw at a thrift store. It was 50% off that day so it cost under $2bucks. The blade is not taper ground. Does that date it to the early 1900’s? Also if anyone knows what Disston model number this is I would appreciate the info. I haven’t been able to figure it out. It was in pretty rough shape. The handle was cracked in ...

Playing Around with Carving #8: Mads Inspired Spoon Horse

08-11-2011 02:00 AM by WayneC | 22 comments »

I’ve been playing with spoon carving and thinking that being able to use a spokeshave and drawknife will speed the shaping of the handles. I have clamped the work to my carving bench with some success, but Mads's shave horse has inspired me to think about making a similar solution. I really do not want to tackle a full sized shave horse at this time and I did some thinking about how I could come up with something to use on my carving bench. I am thinking of making a jig simil...
