Small Secretary With Tambour Door #12: Hardware and Final Assembly

03-29-2015 10:39 PM by Guy Dunlap | 8 comments »

It’s finally finished! In this video I perform the final assembly of the secretary. I install the tambours and handles, the backs, and the drawer hardware.

However in the end, it boiled down to my beautiful wife making the final decision. A nice coat of wax and it’s complete! Thanks to everyone who watched and supported me during this build! As always, I welcome your com...

Rope Carvings

I prepared some rope samples a few weeks ago for a client meeting. Here’s the process I used: Layout Part I. Video for Part I of the layout process. I mark the centers of the square portions at either end of the turning. I line my ruler up with the two points and bend it down slightly so it touches the column. Then I mark a short center line on the column itself. I do that on all four sides. Then I take some painters tape and line up the centers the same way I did with the ruler, ...

Photographing long or tall projects. #2: Adjusting Your Photos.

03-22-2015 09:34 PM by Druid | 4 comments »

I mentioned in the first part of this Blog that I would be adding some information on Adjusting Your Photos, so here it is. This section starts with “Step 8” as a continuation to the first section, but these instructions can be used independently from the Panorama function in the event that you have any photos that would benefit from adjustments such as exposure, contrast, highlights, dark areas, etc. Once again, I will mention that the required software is already installed on yo...

File to knife... #1: Starting the process

03-20-2015 10:49 PM by MadJester | 14 comments »

Hello all! Let me begin by saying that this is not an original idea, many have done this before…this is just my attempt of it that I have been tossing around in my head for quite a long time now… I’ve researched online, and I was looking for a way to do this without a forge involved…my friend has one, but I believe that I can shape the knives without losing the temper if I’m careful not to let the metal get too hot. I started with some vintage files/rasps ...

I needed an upgrade in my shop for my Lutherie tools and I didn’t want to get those pricy steel tool box to go in my woodworking environment. So I sat down at my drawing table and tried to come up with something to accommodate my need, at a reasonable price, and made of wood. I made this tool chest with only 4 boards of 8’x6”x1” of black Walnut. I always love the Idea of not using screws and/or nails, therefore I made a Dovetail construction.
