trying to re-invent the top

88 days ago by Jim Sellers | 6 comments »

You can’t appreciate this toy unless you see it in action. I hope the link works. It’s my first ever youtube video and the first video ever shot on my iphone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JclY0Ho9dC8&feature=youtu.be I started tinkering and playing with this idea a couple of years ago and just decided to take it back off the shelf. The kids might not want to put their video games down long enough to try and master this simple toy but I would set the age range from 6 &#...

Restoration Of Table, Completed!!!!!

745 days ago 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...

Ukulele No. 1 #1: gluing up the back

522 days ago by Justin M Schmidt | 2 comments »

I had this moment where it clicked – out of all the stupid hobbies and interests I’ve spread my attention so thin across, the one that really drives me and could be a career is definitely lutherie. I’ve always been into upgrading and repairing my own instruments, and working on friends’ gear. It’s also in my blood: That’s my paternal grandfather’s work. Unfortunately I never got to meet him as he died when my father was young. Still, just knowi...

Upholstering 2 Chairs For My Living Room #2: Fabric - What's the big deal?

206 days ago by MarkTheFiddler | 10 comments »

So what is the big Deal about upholstery fabric. What do I need to know? Is there a top, left side, right side and bottom. Is it stretchy, is it velvet, is it thin, is it thick, is it heavy, is it slippery, is it clothing fabric, is it drapery fabric, is it upholstery fabric, is it, is it and is it?

Day one

902 days ago by T. D. Reid | 4 comments »

I had to get on here tonight and post a picture of the legs for my eight year olds new bed. I am using a design from Wood Magazine that I have made one change too and that was the legs. If you have seen the plans for this bed they give you an option of bunking the bed and due to the ceiling height in his room I will pass on that. They cut out where the mortises are located for the rails and then laminated three boards together to get the finished 2 1/4 inch thickness. So my change is the use ...

An age old project.

1945 days ago by Sawdust2 | 21 comments »

Maybe that should be an old age project. Turn (turned) 65 today. Coincidentally, my birthday present is a new mini-lathe. Joyously, according to the tracking software, it was only 25 miles away and on the UPS truck at 5:00 AM. And my wife has stuck with me for 36 years. I am truly a blessed man. Lee

"Wo kann ich Holz finden!?" or "Where can I find wood!?"

1091 days ago by Ryan | 6 comments »

I’ve been desperate for anywhere to find wood, or Holz. I try and find simple wood and I can’t find any! I’m getting desperate! This is how low I’ve sunk. I currently was in the PX looking for some things for the kitchen, and I found aromatic cedar hangs. In my desperation, like Gollum, I snatched several up and clutched them to my chest as though someone was going to steal them from me. I feel like an addict, trying to find a fix.. HELP ME GET MY FIX!!! :D
