Wood Handlebars for my bike

08-07-2012 02:47 AM by davemoorefurniture | 18 comments »

Hello again. I recently discovered while working through problems on a big bench commission that when I soak and prebend material intended for bent lamination, there is little to no spring-back in the finished part. What is spring-back you ask? It’s when a part is released from a form either steam bent or bent lamination and the part doesn’t quite hold the exact radius or curve. It’s generally not a problem as long as your form accounts for the slight difference. So, in...

Restoration Of Table, Completed!!!!!

08-05-2012 06:23 PM by Woodworker_Collins | 11 comments »

When my grandad was a carpenter he worked in Aras an Uachtairain (the irish presidents house), he brought this table home from there one day when he was in his 20’s because it was going to be thrown out, he did some repairs and salvaged it. But after being used for 60 years (which the first governor of ireland wrote on the table) and then being used another 40 years when my grandad got it, it was in pretty bad shape. My granny said i could do what i wanted to do with it, because she had...

CYLINDER MAKING #4: Wooden Hinge for Cylinder... Is it possible?

07-30-2012 12:37 PM by BertFlores58 | 3 comments »

The hardest challenge in this series is to make the WOODEN HINGE for a cylinder side. The difficulty of the curve fitting and the alignment of the pin to cater the correct pivot. LID PART . The lid being the one that is on top will take the whole arc that will be close to the outermost part and length will just be enough to hold the post on each end. This must be tangent to the circumference and must be at right angle (at first only so as to route the slot that will hold the pin). You ...

Difficulty #1 – Many pallets are decayed or built with cheap wood. It is unfortunate, but many pallets cannot be repaired for use, at least not by me. If this is not bad enough, some pallets are beyond decay, and are not fit for my use and m...

For more on this and other posts, visit: Pallet Craft! Hey all! Today I have something cool to share! So we just got a bunk bed (see my blog for type) second hand for my daughter to have in her room.As we were building it we were saying to ourselves that we wanted to put her stuffed animals on the bottom, but we did not have a second mattress yet and the bottom only had a metal wire support. It was safe to say we wanted to put something on it that would be better than bare metal! My wif...
