Woodworking Mallet (Carver's Mallet)

03-02-2018 10:23 PM by wrenchhead | 1 comment »

I made these hand made woodworking mallets (Carver’s Mallet) from some leftover maple I cleaned up, laminated, then turned on the lathe. This is a great project for when you only have an hour or two to spend in the wood shop. Nothing better than making my own tools. Thanks for watching! https://youtu.be/dZAOw_frfcI

Shop stuff #117: Hanging an axe head

02-25-2018 02:43 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Good axe handles are getting harder to find. I don’t think it is a shortage of wood or anything like that. I think the manufacturers are just caring less, and most of them are newer companies. I have had my little Swedish axe for a long time and the handle finally gave out. This is how I got a handy tool back into service. View on YouTube

New Inspiration

02-14-2018 12:15 AM by Ron Messersmith | 0 comments »

I just recently ran across a woodworker that I admire greatly. As I am attempting to become a better box builder, I discovered a Lumberjocks member, Dennis Zongker via his book, “Wooden Boxes”. I will try to build some of his boxes and I hope he will not be offended by my attempts.

What is "Fine Furniture"?

02-06-2018 03:53 PM by Matt887 | 16 comments »

I want to start this endeavor as I have others in my life; with an idea of where I want to go, then let the journey fill in along the way. So where I want to go is this, I want to end up being able to build furniture, fine furniture at that. After asking some questions to folks in the field they ask what I thought fine furniture was. For me the question was answered more by what I have seen in print than in person and became difficult to put into words. Therefore I have come up with a few ski...

Building a Spherical Chess Set #3: Turning for show

01-31-2018 11:06 PM by johnstoneb | 4 comments »

I got with my neighbor and got everything chucked up and started turning. The first thing I learned I will not use bubinga on the second globe There is just to much difference in hardness. Made for difficult turning and ridges and low spots. When I drilled and epoxied in the washers I used a spur point bit that had a bout an 1/8” spur below the bottom of the hole. I was able to us that hole to tell when I was getting close to the depth I needed for the washers. Unfortunately I did...

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...
