My First Deep Hollow Turning for the Eggnigma boxThe 09 wood show had me itching to jump in for next years show and the ideas were buzzing through my head, conversations with Gordon Ward (the late) and Jack Devos who are Australian wood turning artists caused me to investigate the process of Deep Hollow Turning.While at the wood show this gave me the opportunity to purchase some great jarrah burl for the idea of the Eggnigma box. Mr Mcjing, a tooling suplier provided some great cutting tools ...
While my basement shop continues to grow (much to the chagrin of my wife, who thinks this whole “woodworking thing” is just a phase I’m going through), it is still a pretty tight space. I’m thus always on the look-out for devices that lend themselves to portability and, preferably, affordability. In that vein, I recently picked up a small 6” portable “carpenter’s vise” at Harbor Freight. Now, I know many of you more seasoned woodworkers may thumb your nose at ol’ HF, but for cheapos like m...
Let’s say you need to made two, three or even four parts in wood, all precisely the same size and shape. It is straightforward and fairly easy to make your parts if they are all rectangular and can be done on the table saw. But, what if they are curved or irregular in shape, and you only need a few? The following technique may seem elementary, but it is surprising how many people aren’t familiar with this idea. Simply put, this is as easy as making two or more parts at once, in one setup, th...
I am needing to find a pattern for making a shadow box for my military awards with a US flag on top of it. But I have hade no luck in finding the pattern that I need if anyone has any ideas please let me now.
Well here we go….. I started making a Nail gun cabinet and this time I decided to take a few more pictures from beginning to end so some may be boring and not needed and some actually may be usefull to someone. This is my first attempt explaining the process I go through and who knows we both may learn something new. I am always open for some advice since I am a self taught woodworker. I am very close to finished project now and did not want to do all of this at one shot so I will...
Just wanted to let everyone know about my new book. I’m writing a book about the ins and outs on the carpentry-woodworking business. I can only release limited details at this time but it will be released late this summer. This book is designed to cover the knowledge you will need to run a successful business. Look for more info posted on my blog over the next few months.Check out the site for more details. www.hisingwooddesign.com
Many of my friends have been asking me for a copy of a “sales catalog” that shows pictures and prices of all the handcrafted pens and products that I have made? I imagine that I could just start cutting and pasting pictures of each of me pens, and then adding materials types and prices, however that seems to be a lot of work and has the potential to become unstructured and non-uniform, i.e. different sized pictures, formatting options, lack of table of contents, titles, etc. ...
By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) I’m excited to share a quick video tutorial about how to cut rabbet joints by hand, with a few simple hand tools. This method focuses on cutting rabbets along the grain, which is especially useful for cutting moldings (first step in using hollows & rounds molding planes), picture frames, etc. Go to this original blog entry (here) for some links to the tools that I used in this tutorial (you can use variations):-Marking gauge (I...
I had a Ryobi 14 Amp 10 in. Compound Mitre Saw. It was working fine but could only cut a max of 5 inches wide boards. I was in the market for a new on but all of the sliding miter saw was so costly. I even considered a Harbor Freight one, but even at that it was a $100 and more for one. I decided to check out craigslist.com and found a Kobalt one there for s feel. Well, after I got home I found out why it was so cheap – it was not square. I tried a couple of time to square it up but it...
