Making a Wooden Pendant #1: My wood pendant process

08-15-2011 09:30 PM by S2artDesigns | 4 comments »

I figured I would put this out there in case anyone was interested to know what I do to make these wooden pendants. Its not complicated. Anyone can do it with their scraps. I personally like to use burl wood but if you have less figured wood you can pair it up with contrasting colors and shapes for a nice effect. ANYWAY, Picture time.I skipped the wood selection process in the photos. I was making this one for a friend and she picked the piece, marked the spot she wanted and then I took over...

TV Stand #4: Bottom and Shelf added

08-14-2011 02:05 AM by Angela | 2 comments »

I’m ready to add the bottom. As member GregD suggested I’m going to use Kreg pocket holes to secure the bottom and shelf in place. I cut some support boards at a height that would allow me to rest the bottom on them and then screw the bottom in place. I turned the work piece upside down to make it easier to screw it in place. Once the bottom was secured, I cut the support boards down to the height I needed for them to support the shelf. I then installed the shelf...

New Handle for and Old Saw

08-12-2011 06:43 PM by Mauricio | 13 comments »

Here is my entry into the Western Hand Saw world. Until now I’ve used Japanese saws so I’m pretty excited to have this one. I finally found an old saw at a thrift store. It was 50% off that day so it cost under $2bucks. The blade is not taper ground. Does that date it to the early 1900’s? Also if anyone knows what Disston model number this is I would appreciate the info. I haven’t been able to figure it out. It was in pretty rough shape. The handle was cracked in ...

TV Stand #3: Moving along...gluing corners, cutting bottom and shelf.

08-11-2011 10:50 PM by Angela | 4 comments »

In planning to glue to corners I cut some angle blocks to assist in holding the clamps in place. I also used a special clamp for angles that I highly recommend if you have to glue up unusual corners or large miter corners. I then tried to figure out how to cut the bottom and shelf. I decided to use my circular saw. Before having a table saw, I used a circular saw to cut the wood so I have a good blade for plywood. I also own a forrest blade but I didn’t use it for this, d...

Box with Inlay lid #1: How not to do a wooden hinge

08-10-2011 09:20 AM by Tootles | 0 comments »

I recently posted a project of a box with a wooden hinge where I said ”I wouldn’t do it the same way again”. The best way to explain why is to explain how I did it. Yes, I know there are a lot of other ways of doing this, but I did it this way regardless – call it an experiment if you like. I made my box in a workshop that is part of the local education system. One of the odd constraints that put on me is that I was not allowed to use the table saw – the person in...
