SPIRAL DESIGN #7: Hexaspiral box - Slicing using Japanese saw

04-12-2011 04:12 PM by BertFlores58 | 3 comments »

Pulling a saw was not easy as it seem. I already sliced the hexaspiral into 3 coaster like pieces. Even though I am experienced in ripping by hand, I still have some difficulty. The saw try to bend inwards or outwards making uneven cut. I was expecting this and so I gave an allowance of 9mm thick to at least have a final thickness of 8 or less after grinding. So here are they…. Here is the thickness photo…. The one that is darker is already coated with sanding seale...

Saddle / Tack Caddy #3: Some lessons learned, 4/9/2011

04-10-2011 05:43 PM by RandyMorter | 0 comments »

I was able to spend a good amount of time working on this project on 4/9/2011. I’d even got off work early the afternoon before and hoped to make some progress but ended up breaking a router bit so had to change my plans. I’ve never broken a router bit before and it was strange. I probably lucked out. I was trying out a cut, just to get the measurements. I was cutting in pine with a 1/2” shank 1/4” straight cut, 2 flute, MLCS Carbide tipped bit. I don’t know w...

Just started cutting into this burl. Incredible! I am not sure if I am going to cut table slabs or block it up for turners. Time will tell. Enjoy! I need to ask a favor of my friends here. Would you go to Face Book and do a search for “Oregon Burls” and Become my friend there. It would help lots. ThanksGregwww.OregonBurls.com PS Check out my new Website!!!

Not enough guys make wooden utensils for families to buy. I took my wooden coffee coaster sets to the senior center to sell on commission in their store. They requested for me to make wooden utensils for people to buy for their kitchens and they believe the wooden utensils would be a fast seller in their store so I am designing a set for them to sell in their store. I won’t charge a arm and a leg for them as I want my set to be affordable to families. My thoughts are if you put a littl...

Project for my 11yr old son?

Any good ideas on a first project for a boy? Knowing me, I’ll probably ask him to do something beyond his skill level. Thanx in advance. Kevin

Vintage Tool Rehab Projects #1: Disston #4 backsaw rehab-Part 1-Cleaning, repairing, rehabbing

04-06-2011 04:30 AM by Brad | 10 comments »

Disston Backsaw Rehab-1 Cleaning, repairing and rehabbing I was in Salt Lake City recently on business. After dinner I slipped into my pajamas to watch tv and do one of my favorite on-the-road activities—look for tools on Ebay. Now that my hand plane inventory has reached 7, it’s time to focus on some other tools. Apparently, if you want to build things out of wood, saws can be pretty helpful. It’s not that I don’t have any. I have a modern (read crappy) handsaw along with a 14″ Stanley...

Woodworking Business #6: Two Woodworking Business Blogs

04-05-2011 02:25 PM by billb | 1 comment »

I haven’t posted here in some time because of suffering through a bad flu that really put me down. In spite of the flu shot, which I take every year, this monster was overwhelming and it feels great to be nearly well again. I decided to catch up a little by sharing a couple of my woodworking business blogs where I was posting a great deal before the flu monster overtook me. One of them is called the Woodworking Business Blog and the latest posts are about several of the jobs I did...

Lessons in barnboard

04-03-2011 08:48 AM by superstretch | 4 comments »

Today I had a unique experience that really got me doing something I’ve wanted to for a long time. Some background: So I have a ~150-180 year old outhouse that the previous owner moved off its old foundation and next to the pool, where it now serves as a filter/pump house. One side of the roof was cedar shingles and the other was metal sheeting (think refugee camp and you get the picture). During one of our windstorms, which the area is notorious for, the metal sheeting peeled back l...

Projects #1: First Cutting Board Project

04-01-2011 10:31 PM by smitty22 | 5 comments »

Well, like most of my projects, there’s a bit of a twisted tale behind this one, so follow along and I’ll spin it for you: A friend (I think) for whom I repaired a broken cutting board a while back donated a salvaged commercial board of solid edge-grain hard maple. Asked him if he wanted it repaired and I was grateful when he said, “No, just use the wood for something interesting.” My first thought was that the maple would make very nice glue-up for vise jaws for my new woodworking b...
