Medal Chest #7: Trimming the Fat in Style

04-22-2013 11:58 AM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Note to my readers—-this is the secret project I’ve mentioned a few times.  It has consumed my shop time since February.  That’s why it’s been so slow on the blog for the last few months.  Now that it has been delivered, I can post the details. Well, I went and got the new hand plane (the WoodRiver #5 Jack I wrote a review about already). Now that I have my new planing stop installed in the bench and my new jack plane in hand, I put the carving down and gave the a...

Exercises in Artisanship #26: Practices in Spoonology: Part Five THE FINALE!

09-17-2012 09:25 PM by jjw5858 | 3 comments »

Well friends the journey of shaves, blisters and spoonery at this portion of the climb is bringing us to the top of one small hill with various mountains yet to adventure. This blog was a real joy to share, theres something really rewarding making wooden ware. Once you learn your way around the hatchet and train the mind to see shapes within the extended branches of any forest species, it is truly amazing to bring out something so small and delicate from a thick and sometimes brutal branch. ...

A TOTALLY NEW project idea....!!

08-31-2014 01:54 AM by TannerTurnings | 7 comments »

Over the past few days I’ve been working on an idea that I’ve NEVER seen or even heard of anyone making before. Therefore I am obviously having to work out methods & techniques “on the job”. It’s only a small item that I hope will sell well at some craft fairs & markets, and possibly on line sales too. I’m NOT going to reveal what this item is, until I have got it the way I want it, and have made a few ready to sell, BUT…I WILL reveal it on...

The Maloof Library Series #7: Not for the timid...Maloof inspired Music Stand

05-12-2011 05:58 AM by ScottMorrison | 6 comments »

A while back, I posted some pictures of the most difficult project I had ever attempted…the Maloof Music Stand. Much to my surprise, quite a few woodworkers have expressed an interest in tackling this thing, so I have finally put together templates and a detailed instruction booklet for anyone who thinks they’re up for the challenge. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. ;) You can have a look Here Enjoy! Scott Morrisonhttp://www.finewoodworker.com

Plugging large holes

10-13-2015 01:18 PM by Nels | 12 comments »

I have used material that had bolts and washers in it. The holes are 1-3/4” and I need to plug these holes. Cutting the exsisting holes with a router or drill bit is easy. How can I cut a plug accurately that is 2-1/2” in diameter and 1/2” thick? I can make the hole smaller (maybe 2-3/8” or 2-1/4”), but I want to cut out the defects around where the bolt holes are. The material is oak and there are about 200 holes to plug. I guess I could turn the plugs,...

I have 117 small segments that deal with things like adjustment and fitting of various attachments for those wh...

Stool II, the making of a Cabriole leg

01-28-2016 07:11 PM by Lazy_K | 2 comments »

Because someone asked… making a cabriole leg, either round or squared isn’t nearly as hard as some think. First: make up your pattern…then draw it on the side and front of your leg stock. then proceed to cut it out ;)If you have a bandsaw, start on one side, leave a little (1/4”) uncut at the bottom of the cuts, so you’ll need to cut in from both ends. cut all of the cuts on this side like this, if there is an area on the “underside” (side a...

Adjustable angle jig

08-06-2010 03:33 AM by Jeff | 1 comment »

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...
