386 days ago by Patricelejeune | 4 comments »

I just finished cutting the second inside panel for this treasure box series #2. This is for the inside of the lid. Some of the pieces are a bit small, I have a tendency to go to far… It is cut on the marquetry chevalet. The piece by piece process require to be precise The pieces are laid out in √©clat√© according to their final position I really like those detail pictures The 2 panels are done cutting, ready for shading in hot sand ...

Upholstering 2 Chairs For My Living Room #5: A little body stitching.

207 days ago by MarkTheFiddler | 9 comments »

There is very little on these chairs that I need to sew on the body. Still, a little might be just enough of an example for some of you. The front of the chair and deck need a bit of sewing. Take a look at this rounded front edge and the old stiches. There are several ways to skin this cat. One is to take off the fabric, undo the stitches then trace the cutouts onto you new fabric. I have to do that sometimes. Let’s get a little adventurous. Since I have a pattern with a center...

Waste of Time and Wood Today

68 days ago by Dave Rutan | 9 comments »

I think I need a new blade for my table saw. At least a blade is cheaper than buying a jointer. I had this idea that I wanted to start making a project today and I didn’t want to buy the wood. So I rummaged through some out of the way spots in my workshop and came up with two identical drawer fronts. The wood I need for the project needs to be 12 inches across and these two 8 inch drawer fronts were my best bet. Unfortunately, I’d have to glue them together edgewise. No probl...

Zero Clearance on the Table Saw

1574 days ago by taidsturning | 11 comments »

I cut a lot of small parts in my segmented bowl making. Lots of these cuts are made at blade angles other than 0 degrees. Operating with a zero clearance insert is desirable but the variety of blade angles makes using one difficult. I would need a bunch. I use a lot of packing tape to hold small parts while gluing and the other day it occurred to me to stretch a thickness or two of the tape over the blade slot with the blade down and then lift the blade to cut through the tape and leave i...

Hotel wood

2024 days ago by jm540 | 10 comments »

This is some wood I got from a job that was on so valueable every scrap had to be saved for three months after it was installed I watched as it was sat unstickered in a east window rained upon, stacked upon, I saved it from the dumpster twice, kicked over and I would go over and restack it(I’m an electrician), lunch upon get this crap outta the way upon, and I would always say I’d love to have that wood I’ll get out of the way” We have to keep it it is valuable” ...

New to the hobby, a look inside the beginners mind. #1: the first few tools in the shop

2419 days ago by Jason Wheeler | 6 comments »

I have to say setting up a wood shop is just as much work and cash, if not more, then setting up a steel shop. Luckily a few of the steel tools are useful and will come in handy to the wood shop. I have also a few tools from a set of cedar drafting drawers I built oh, 5 years back. It was a one time thing and at the time living in an apartment, dust was every where. All I really had was a Dewalt biscuit joiner and a random orbital sander, that was it. A pic of the cedar drawers, mmmm they ...

Lighting Pendants #1: Truncated Icosahedron challenge.

58 days ago by MarkTheFiddler | 18 comments »

Howdy, I’m making two chandeliers for the living room. I don’t know why I thought it might be a good idea to hang soccer balls from the ceiling. I just got it in my head that they would look good up there. Now I’m all in. The top half of the chandeliers will be solid wood while the bottom halves will be made from the wooden cages. Since I’m posting this from my I-phone, the pictures might turn out sideways or upside down. ;) This is two top halves resting o...
