thewoodwhisperer in my crane

642 days ago by cranesgonewild | 11 comments »

Even when I’m at work in the crane, I still have woodworking with me. I’m catching up on the lastest tips from Marc, thewoodwhisperer. In this video, I’m piledriving steel beams for a bridge job in Toronto. You can see here the hammer is working harder than I am. The hammer sounds louder in this video, but it’s really not that bad at all. And I had the video turned down as well on the iPad. Hope you enjoy.

Stop (watching / reading, ) my (show / blog), getup and get into your shop and get woodworking This type of quote has been issued time and time again, and I realized that I have been sitting in my living room and watching these shows and reading these blogs more than I had gotten i...

Cutting Boards #4: Final Glue-Up and Flattening

847 days ago by MolokMot | 2 comments »

After the last glue-up, and flattening the panel, I cross cut the panel in strips 1.25” wide. Taking those strips I turned them so the end grain was showing and flipped every other one end for end to create the checkerboard pattern. I am sure we have all seen Marc Spag's (aka: TheWoodWhisperer) video. (7 – How to Make a Butcher Block End Grain Cutting Board) I am sure Marc loves all of the extra attention on the subject of cutting boards. Glue up was somewhat frustrating because I...

TheWoodWhisperer Woodworkers Fighting Cancer Rocking Horse #3: Childs play (Coloring)

1019 days ago by PurpLev | 4 comments »

Probably not what I’d do on some projects, but on this one it was the perfect opportunity to let my daughter draw and paint the horse prior to sealing it. She was so excited helping out and painting it that it was all worth it. I basically let her complete freedom and a full set of brushes and water colors and away she went. Note to self – for painting a large surface better to use larger finishing type brushes and not art brushes as it took forever to just paint the main th...

TheWoodWhisperer Woodworkers Fighting Cancer Rocking Horse #2: Getting in Shape and putting it together

1020 days ago by PurpLev | 7 comments »

Following yesterdays work I continued shaping the remaining parts. Yesterday I used a rasp on some smaller parts, and today having to work on larger parts and more of them I decided to forgo the rasp work and power up the oscillating belt sander. Looking back now, I am not sure it was any faster, but it required less muscle work at the cost of more dust in the air – and lots of it!. For parts that had duplicates I only shaped 1, and then using the router table and a flush trim bit tr...
