Game Calls #2: Scratch Box Turkey Calls

02-28-2013 05:14 PM by ghost5 | 1 comment »

After posting a few of these neat little calls I thought some other folks might like to know how to make them. They are an easy project and another way to use some of that scrap wood. The easiest way to make a scratch box is to have a dedicated mortiser set up with a 1/2”cutter but since I don’t have one here is how I do it. If you do have one you can quickly see how to use it to accomplish what I am doing. I start with a 1 & 5/8”“x4” piece 1/2” t...

Secret Compartment Toy Box #3: More Progress

08-28-2009 06:54 AM by John M | 9 comments »

Time to make the lid. Easy enough, I made it overlap about a half inch on each side (mostly dictated based on the size of the project panels that I used) and 1.5” on the front for the lifting of the lid. I should comment here on the project panels issue. I bought the standard project pine panels for this project at Home Depot and I felt a bit guilty about it. I told my fiancee when I bought them that I felt like I was “cheating” and that buying the pre assembled pane...

07-01-2009 05:56 AM by sIKE | 7 comments »

I have been working on this project time permitting. Had end of school year stuff with the kids, a surprise visit from some relatives, and of course been busy traveling for work, so it has been interment to say the best :( So, I got this puppy glued up a couple of weekends ago. After fighting with a shelf that I messed up on and had to remake a new one. Talk about frustation, nothing went right with it and it took me a couple of weeks just to build one new shelf.Now this project has had many...

Building a Board Bow #1: A Wood Bow is dreamed up.

06-13-2011 11:36 PM by wildbill001 | 4 comments »

Several years ago I got re-interested in archery via a garage-sale purchase of a very used compound bow. That led to the purchase of a better used model and eventually and even better and more powerful bow, though still used.. Unfortunately, my shoulder gave out about 6 months after that. The doc said I had to lay off shooting for “a while” and IF I was able to get back to it, use a very light draw-weight (less than 40#). SWMBO suggested I give it up all together. So, the ne...

Making of a cinderella carriage bed #1: Wagon wheels

02-03-2013 02:24 PM by grosa | 16 comments »

This is what the completed bed will look like. These are the spokes for the 48” back wheels. This is the rim for the front wheels. These are the front wheels. Front and back wheels. The radius at the bottom of the spokes was cut on the table saw by locking down the miter gauge and pushing the wood into the blade from the side and it was done in 4 passes. We used an 8” dado blade. This is the back of the wheel where the axle will go into Ne...

Hand Carved Sign #1: Pattern, Carving, Priming

10-04-2011 09:58 PM by MyChipCarving | 6 comments »

This is my first attempt at carving a sign. I’ve wanted to try it for quite a while. Our retreat center needed a sign by the road so this sign already has a home all picked out. Dimensions: 36” x 12” x 2”, basswood I know basswood isn’t the best exterior wood but seeing as it will be painted, I figured it should last many years as long as I give it proper care and maintenance. I created the pattern on my computer. Each letter stands 3” tall. The fo...

Work Bench Constuction Journal #1: My Dream Workbench - A Journal of Progress

01-24-2012 10:41 PM by Ron Ramsey | 21 comments »

I have finally gotten around to making a real workbench for my new, and smaller, shop (see my previous entry). I am in the planning phase right now. I’ve been pouring over plans, books, philosophy of workbench design. I guess it’s safe to say I may be over thinking this. But the design is half the fun. So, I’ve put together a journal that you can download and look at. It has pictures and explanations of some of the design considerations I’m mulling over. I am ...
