DragonFly Harp #3: Making the Pink Harp

01-04-2011 06:31 PM by Donna Menke | 3 comments »

Started the new year off right with many hours in the shop working on the harp project. I’ll try to keep track of my hours- a good guess would be about 10 hours to date.I don’t kid myself that working with this foam is anything like working with wood, but I need to get a prototype before I can even think about making working drawings.I spent a lot of time trying to get my styrofoam pieces to stay in the right plane before I got the brain storm to make some supportive blocks at the...

Carving a small spoon

04-16-2014 04:10 PM by filiplaw | 3 comments »

I had a small piece of pine laying around and a free afternoon so I decided to carve another spoon. I wanted it to be small (somewhere between a teaspoon and a tablespoon) and simple in shape. I traced around some plastic spoon I had in my kitchen and altered the handle shape a bit. With the outline ready I went to work. I made some stop-cuts with a saw and bashed out the waste with a 20mm chisel. I also did the same to the underside since the stock was way too thick for a spoon.I find ...

Is there an easier way to select components/groups that are behind another geometry? or inside one? Is there a way to transfer a component from one group to another? Yes there is. Welcome the Outliner window. This tutorial refers to components in your model, but in this case, groups behave in the exact same manner.

Wolf's Tooth Banding...a Two for One

11-02-2010 09:03 PM by Bob Simmons | 3 comments »

“It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.” .....Muhammad Ali, Heavyweight boxing champ…1942 - One of the benefits of creating “Wolf’s Tooth” wood inlay bandings is that you actually get two bandings for the effort of one. What do I mean by this? When the initial cuts from the laminated stock are made on the table saw using the dedicated miter saw we flip th...

Lumber Storage

02-11-2010 02:05 AM by kosta | 3 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to talk about lumber storage. Most woodworkers have a lumber rack you almost never see a shop without a lumber rack either in the main part of the shop or outside. I have never used a lumber rack just because I have never had enough wall space. The problem with lumber racks is that to get to 1 board you really have to move a lot of other boards. Some lumber racks are 7 ft off the ground. If your up on a ladder moving 15 lb boards around that kinda sucks. Its not...

Turning Green Madrone Burl.

08-30-2012 05:54 PM by OregonBurls | 3 comments »

Hey everyone. Just another tip for Madrone and Madrone burl… I have been told that madrone shrinks a whopping 18% No wander it is a self destructive wood. So with that being said you can work with the shrinkage or tame the beast. I love the warping and shrinkage of the Madrone. If you can get spindles of green straight grain, you can turn some nice handles and what ever you put in them be it a knife or a gouge when that handle dries it is lock in for years of use. With green bu...

04-24-2008 12:39 PM by flink | 3 comments »

Many excellent woodworking videos. I stumbled on this link for this site on Reddit.com, from a posted link on creating a solar furnace from coke cans (that garage gets cold in the winter).
