Native American Indian Flute with an Australian twist #7: The Superfoot winning entry

09-05-2014 04:44 AM by icemanhank | 1 comment »

Hi everybody, Back in the initial entry to the making of my flute I talked about the competition that it was made for and in the last post I had photos of the entries (sadly all but one) and a picture of what we were given to work with. Here is the winning entry by David Stanley and I think you will agree it is a really wonderful piece. It is a clock, in the pictures it has no hands, and as per normal with David it is just so well carved. Also; David doesn’t use plans!

Lessons Learned in my Small Korean Woodshop

09-05-2014 02:26 AM by MilFlyer | 7 comments »

Okay, so I started this blog with the intent of helping anyone else working in smalls space. After a year of living in an apartment in Korea, while constantly amassing new toys, I mean tools, I’ll have to say it has been a year of constant learning. I’ve said before, I’m a relatively young (new) woodworker so some of these anecdotes may be things you more experienced folk will laugh at. I’ll illustrate the first point with something from my personal experience. As a military flight instruc...

Starting a youtube channel for wheelchair woodworkers and what not

09-03-2014 06:22 AM by cdaniels | 16 comments »

So i’ve been doing a lot of sitting on my tuckus and i’ve got the wild hair of an idea that since i’m now in a wheelchair and I am a diehard woodworker than why not try to help out the rest of the randoms out there that are in a similar situation? Problem with this is that I have no video editing, or making experience at all. I’m thinking about just starting with a basic introduction video introducing myself and outlining a few things that i’ll be doing in my vid...

A Domino Ooopppsss....

08-30-2014 03:08 PM by Huckleberry | 1 comment »

Here is where those seasoned veterans of the Festool Domino can point and laugh at some rookie mistakes. I am making a new cabinet to house my air compressor because the dawgone thing is soooo loud. So I thought it would be a great project to put my new Domino through some paces. As I was trying to understand some things on this machine I plunged into the face of some scrap 3/4” plywood I would be using to make the carcass. Well I created a through Domino, so back to the instruction...

Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #12: Sides Marquetry incrustation

08-28-2014 10:20 PM by Patricelejeune | 12 comments »

I have been back full time on our boxes for over a week now so I have some progress to report. I have been selecting veneer out of our veneer cellar for the ebony background. From the experience of the previous series I paperbacked the ebony as it is a very brittle wood. Better be safe than sorry Then built the packs in 4 layers without forgetting the grease paper, one of my specialty in the mistake department. Teaching marquetry has been a great help as by reminding the stud...

How to Cut a Dado Joint with Hand Tools

08-22-2014 12:58 AM by WoodAndShop | 1 comment »

In my above video I show how to cut a simple dado joint with basic woodworking hand tools. What is a dado joint used for? A dado joint is used for securing shelves inside cabinets or book shelves.

How to Reverse a Woodworking Clamp

08-19-2014 03:24 PM by WoodAndShop | 5 comments »

In my above video I share a eureka moment that I had when trying to apply reverse clamping pressure against the walls of my dovetailed tool chest. The original blog post is here. I discovered that I could simply reverse my small Bessey clamp’s jaw and it would push outward instead of inward! It’s kind of hard to explain in words, so just watch the video! I’m not sure if any other clamps can be reversed like this, but I hope it helps. Here is where you can buy these clamps: -Besse...
