i am currently building a wooden skiff. This is the process including my mistakes and successes
The First Garboard Plank The first plank is on! It has been the most difficult part of the build so far. I’ve gone through 4 planks to get it right. For my fellow LJers who may be wondering, I’ve put in a few hours here and there, but I’ve taken quite a bit of time away from the project since the holidays. I’m exciting to be focused again. The challenge with this is getting the plank flush and tight into the rabbit along the keel. It’s a tough plank bec...
This adventure in carving has been very enjoyable.The scroll pattern seemed to be a bit more advanced than I had anticipated. Although I am never one to run from a challenge. I kind of get a grin and ….well as my mom always said “you can see the wheels turning in that boys head.” So I grabbed a very small home made gouge and the chips were flying….sort of.This wood is so very dry for carving After about 12 hours I ended up with this. I am attempting to simulate bullet ...
Anybody who has studied Chinese woodworking will not doubt have come across prints like this one where a ancient Chinese woodworker is depicted pounding on a piece of furniture with what appears to be the blunt edge of an axe. For example the Lu Ban Jing, a woodworkers manual written around in the 15th century, shows a woodworker assembling a table by pounding on one of its legs with the blunt side of an axe. During much of China’s long and colorful history, China has been more or le...
My workshop has been in the design stages for over 2 years now. I have been collecting components for over 2 years though! The structure is a 15mm pine weather board/shiplap outer skin, foil faced bubble wrap insulated building paper layer, 89mm*38mm CLS frame with glasswool insulation, and a 11mm osb inner skin. I finished cutting the roof timbers today and took delivery of the final load f weather board… HOORAH! All i need to do now is demolish my existing concrete monstrosity, ...
It was a thursday morning just another day carving at our local carving chapter meeting. In walks a nice elderly gent that had a box of Thompson sub maching gun stocks that never made it to use. They were stored for years, he knew of the carvers and decided to donate them to the club as test projects for us less talented carvers like myself. I inspire to become a great carver someday Dennis Z. in my opinion is truely a great carver.So I decided to take two of them although I was urged to take...
I was asked to take these shutters and make some bookshelves. I will be utilizing wood that is approx. 60 yrs old and these shutters, which, we don’t know how old, but could be much more. I am inserting the pictures of the shutters, as this project may take a little while
I have been busy, as of late, with actual work, going out of the shop to build, so I have been slow at getting pictures of this box uploaded. For any who are interested, here are current pictures. I need to put a finish on it, molding on it and complete the interior. (A small box that will be able to be lifted out for filters.) Last, but not least, I need to add some sort of handle on each side.
I juste want to share with you Jocks my little hand tools collection. It was a gift from a old judge who got the tool box of his great grand father who use to build home in 1875 to 1905. He was from Quebec Canada and he participated in building the great resorts in Banff, Lakelouise and all those places in the Rockies. Most of the tools came from that tool box and some i got from friends and garage sale…...here’s the metal plane part a the my tools and one wooden plane. I will pos...
