Building a Spherical Chess Set #1: The Beginning

01-28-2018 03:24 PM by johnstoneb | 6 comments »

About a year ago a friend posted a picture of a spherical chess set and somewhat challenged another friend and I to attempt to build it. The friend didn’t have a lathe and we both kind of dropped the idea. I kept coming back to it and did some research and found the Instructables project. I read the article that was posted and decided it mght be something I would try. The article has a few pictures that give you an idea about how it is mounted etc. everything in the article ended wi...

Simple Cherry Picture Frame (Half Lap Joinery)

01-24-2018 03:01 AM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

Here is a video of another easy project for when I only have a couple hours to spend in the shop. I made this frame to fit an eight by ten photo but you could easily scale it up or down to fit your needs.

Using a Router and Hand Tools to Shape a Seat.

01-10-2018 04:51 PM by davemoorefurniture | 3 comments »

I’ve used routers many times to do the bulk removal of wood when shaping a solid seat. But, I’ve never done it totally freehand like I do in this video. In the past I’ve made large patterns that a router-on-sled would follow with a collar. Each subsequent pattern requires a different depth of cut and what you end up with is something that reminds me of the tiers of a quarry that undulate along the natural path of the topography, concentrically. It really makes you fe...

Large variety of exotic hardwoods and wood working tools. Free for my fellow LJocks

12-27-2017 05:46 AM by kiara583 | 20 comments »

Helped a friend move from large house with fully equipped woodworking shop to a smaller home. The overwhelming task of packing a 3500 sq ft house plus shop was difficult. Ran out of storage room so everything else was to be thrown out. Thought it would be a shame to throw it away so I spent a week hoping someone would appreciate this treasure. Will post more pictures. Turning tools, large dust collector, drill press, saws etcs. Could sell but would rather share. I only have time invested ...

An Attempt to Replicate a Simple Tool Box

12-13-2017 03:46 AM by GLowz | 3 comments »

What I thought would be a simple little project has now turned out to be anything but simple. My thoughts were to reproduce an old tool box of mine and give it to my son as a gift. He always loved that old box, as did I, but since it has been in my possession he has only been able to view it from afar. At first glance I saw that it was thin with mitered corners, old hinges and a simple hook and eye latch. As I began to reconstruct the box I noticed that this wasn’t just handmade dove...

How I built the Timber frame Staircase

12-11-2017 05:13 PM by BenhamDesign | 0 comments »

You can watch it be built on YouTube Or read about it below I built this timber frame staircase from reclaimed beams that came from another client’s house a few miles up the road. The beams use to support a pergola, that was torn down during their remodel. We templated the area where the stairs where going to go and brought it back to the shop and premade them. The install was fairly straightforward as they were already in assembled in sections. All that was left was to put them in ...

Underway again...finally #11: Pro Football day - some progress in wood and football

11-20-2017 12:51 AM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

Let’s get the “big deal” out of the way first. After a shaky first 3 quarters, we pulled it out in the last couple of minutes. My team now has 8 wins in a row! Geaux Saints! Whew. With that taken care of, I did a bit of work both before and after the game. Before the game, I worked on strengthening the table saw stand and raising its height to what it should have been yesterday. Nothing major skill-wise. Just the usual “do and re-do” process for me as I futz m...
