Charles Neil build along mahogany lowboy "series" #18: week

12-14-2010 04:18 AM by a1Jim | 21 comments »

Charles Neil mahogany lowboy build-along, #18On a planet far, far away, long, long ago this A-1 guy was building a lowboy. He was given the wood and blow-by-blow instruction how to build it and was reporting to the land of LJ about how it was going. Then this invader, called LIFE stopped the whole process and only after a long battle, did the A-1 guy get back to the castle to continue the lowboy adventure.Now that my sanity has (briefly) returned… LOL, I’ll get on with the show, since a numb...

How to Make Perfect Miter Joints

12-13-2010 11:54 PM by Bob Simmons | 3 comments »

It could be said that miter joints are definitely one of the most common joints in woodworking or carpentry. This is a joint that we are taught early on in our apprenticeships because we will be cutting miters throughout our entire career. As an apprentice it sounds simple enough to just cut a left 45 and a right 45 and glue then together to form a 90. If it were so simple then why are there open miter joints? Let’s take a look at how we can make perfect miter joints. View the comple...

Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #6: Additional Update

12-13-2010 04:17 AM by lew | 21 comments »

I got called up to active duty- substituting full time in an Information Systems Technology class. So this update has been sometime in developing. Back in the early spring of this year, I had the very great pleasure of meeting the Mason Dixon Wood Working Club. We got together to learn how to make these Celtic Knot rolling pins. During the workshop session, LJ Karson suggested that it would be easier, and less wasteful, to make a saw kerf for only the walnut strips and leave the origina...

Facets, the Next Logical Step #1: How hard can it be to make a Dodecahedron?

12-12-2010 03:37 AM by shipwright | 16 comments »

The next box in the series Oops!, A Llittle Cabinetree, and now Facets is on the build. It had to be started because I’ve been obsessing too much on the finish of Cabinetree and in order to amuse myself between coats I had been so bored I had started making micro plywood and then micro boxes and banding. It had to stop.So the other day I started to think about what the next logical step would be keeping the theme and some of the aspects of the others but going a very different direction...

Don't lose your shirt on Ebay!

12-11-2010 05:14 PM by StumpyNubs | 28 comments »

I built a beautiful Bombay desk from rich mahogany and rosewood. I spent months hunched over it with my carving chisels creating perfectly crisp details. When I was done I knew it was the most beautiful thin I’d ever make. I put it on ebay, sold it for twenty five bucks to a guy who complained it was going to cost so much to crate and ship across the country, and when it arrived it was dented and splintered, so I had to give a full refund, pay the return shipping and burn it in the shop stove...

Ripping Thin Strips of Wood Inlay on the Band Saw

12-09-2010 08:41 PM by Bob Simmons | 5 comments »

“Do something wonderful, people may imitate it.” Albert Schweitzer… (1875-1965) Humanitarian, Theologian, Missionary, Medical Doctor One of the challenges in making bandings of wood inlay is maximizing the material. We certainly do not want to cut the banding too thick or too thin as either would be wasteful of our decorative inlay that we took the time to make. We also want to be able to cut the wood inlay to a uniform thickness. Cutting bandings to an equal thickness ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #188: Three New Videos!

12-08-2010 02:54 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 16 comments »

I accomplished quite a bit yesterday. Sometimes, when I am working on the office part of the business (correspondence, paperwork, etc.) it seems that I am treading water. I know my blogs aren’t as exciting to you all when I talk of the mundane parts of the operation of my business, but it is essential and necessary part of my job that helps me to expand and grow. I had some promising payoff yesterday that may be a very positive things for me. I almost don’t want to even mentio...
