My second Rocking Chair from Hal Taylor Design - Walnut

801 days ago by mbs | 14 comments »

My mom went with me when I bought the wood for my first rocker and she realized I bought enough wood to make two rockers. She put her order in for one right then. Today is her birthday and mother’s day so I got started on the rocker. I don’t expect to get done until this winter because I don’t do much woodworking in the summer. 5/13/12 When I made my first rocker I cut enough rocker slats and back brace slats to make a second rocker. I got started by glueing up the ...

Jewelry Cabinet #4: Final pieces, assembly and finish.

832 days ago by Devin | 4 comments »

Well, about 330 days ago I wrote something about being finished this piece in another 4 weeks. That didn’t happen, but in my defence I did get other pieces done in that time, I just kept getting pulled away from this jewelry cabinet. The work left on this piece was not big, but very finicky and detailed, which is likely why I kept finding it hard to get traction. I made the three drawers for the bottom section before moving onto the more intricate boxes that sit on the cabinet. ...

Spalted Maple Projects #1: Milling Lumber

923 days ago by David Craig | 8 comments »

A few months back. Mike (jockmike2) and I went in together on a couple hundred board feet of air dried lumber at Raven’s Farm, a mill that is local to us. The cost came out to about 1.25 a board foot which was a steal as far as I was concerned. Boards have been setting for a bit, with a dozen getting acclimated to the shop. I don’t have the space for a jointer so have been working the boards with a recent plane addition and then running them through my Ridgid. Woodworking i...

Lumber Score!

1034 days ago by SteveKorz | 14 comments »

I was walking through the timber a month ago, and found a huge smooth bark hickory that had fallen from a storm. The trunk was 24” in diameter at its base, and 30 foot up the trunk it was 16” in diameter. When I saw it, I knew it just had to be milled. I already had a cherry that had fallen that was 20 foot tall and a foot in diameter. So, I called a sawyer that came and picked up one 6 foot and two 12 foot hickory logs, and one 5 foot and two 8 foot cherry logs. ...

Well, I am started down the road now to creating a rocking horse for my granddaughter, Emma.She will be two years old this Christmas, and has now just begun to walk. So I figure, if I start it now,I’ll finish in time for this Christmas… This horse is being created loosely from the Woodsmith Rocking Horse, issue #65, with a little creative flair this time around. I last built one of these some 16 years ago, for my oldest granddaughter, who is going to graduate from high school next...

Marking knife

1365 days ago by PaBull | 9 comments »

OK, I was not going to start this knife for a while, too busy….. but I could not help myself. (I might need help) I found a piece of spalted pallet wood. With heart and sap wood. I think it’s kinda pretty. (This one is for you Jusfine ) I bought a lathe about a year ago ($75, garage sale, including the chisels), but I never dared to turn it on. Well, last night was the night, and I am still here. For the knife I used an old sawzall blade, the same as I did with the ca...
