Woodturning Projects #5: Napkin Rings from the USS Shangri-La

02-25-2017 02:46 PM by Scott Seganti | 6 comments »

Here is a video I made making a reproduction of a napkin ring from the USS Shangri-La. This napkin ring was given to my aunt’s father who was a ‘plank owner’ aboard the USS Shangri-La (CV-38). When I first saw this napkin ring I immediately wanted to turn one. Not only do I appreciate being able to recreate a part of history… I really like the design. This is a case where form follows function. I’ve spent my share of time at sea and can appreciate the functionality of the flat section; ...

View on YouTube Few time I decided it was time to improve my sharpening gadgets, so after some research I found this design of a sink a bridge. its basically two board, one on top of each other merged with a screw that also serves as lock to put the stones.

100 foot cabinet shop #1: Thoughts behind the shop and working standards

02-13-2017 01:50 AM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

Used to have a shop, X got in the divorce. :( Fast forward 15 years & I have 2/3 of 1/2 of a garage to build a cabinet shop in. The core of any shop is the table saw and within my (retired) spending limit I got a brand new Grizzly G0715P. Simultaneously with the saw purchase I added an Incra LS-III rip fence and an Incra miter gauge. I’m disabled and can’t walk / stand a lot so everything is within reach of my chair in front of the saw. I’ve got most all of th...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1815: It's All in the Details

01-19-2017 01:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It really feels good to get back to creating. The last month and a half went by so quickly. Between the holidays and the chaos of having my beloved pets ill, it seemed that with a blink of an eye the month of December and now most of January is behind us. I wish I could say that I was more productive. But I spent my time doing what needed to be done and taking the time I needed to deal with these personal things. I know I am working my way to a better place because there are so many idea...

Tongue Drum #1: Tongue Drum Help

12-07-2016 01:07 AM by Raymus | 0 comments »

I am in the process of making my first tongue drum. Got the Poplar box and Red Oak tone board made, needs lot of work still, and a bottom yet. But the 3/4” red oak tone board doesn’t make much sound and three of the 12 keys sound dead. Don’t understand what’s happening? It doesn’t rattle or buzz, just thump, no tone, well, not a pleasant one anyway. Sure could use some insight or help figuring out what’s happened? It’s funny, the two keys along one...
