Wine Cork Display Tutorials #2: Cutting and Measuring

11-18-2010 07:12 AM by FaTToaD | 5 comments »

In this tutorial I’ll be making three redwood wine box displays. Two will be 12” x 12” x 3”, the other will be 10” x 10” x 2 1/4”. These are the two most common sizes I make, the 12” square box will hold ~125 wine corks, where as the 10” version will hold ~80. It doesn’t look like that many will fit in there, but I promise you they will.Before we begin, I want to mention that these tutorials will be available on my photography sit...

Wine Cork Display Tutorials #1: Intro

11-18-2010 06:08 AM by FaTToaD | 5 comments »

To my amazement there has been a lot of inquiries into how I make my wine cork displays. These questions inspired me to create a series of blog/tutorials to help explain my process. They will probably go into far more detail than most of you “master woodworkers” care to see, but I’m hoping it will help those new to woodworking. I remember how valuable some of the more detailed tutorials where to me when I first started, and still are for that matter. The design is one ...

The Band Saw Accessories...made in the Shop #3: Tilting Bandsaw Miter Sled

11-17-2010 06:07 PM by Bob Simmons | 13 comments »

“And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” ...Nelson Mandela, first black president of South Africa & Nobel Prize recipient .(1918- ) The idea of the tilting bandsaw miter sled came to me while working on creating a variety of wood inlay banding patterns for various wood projects to be built. Sometimes my choice is to cut inlay segments by using the dedicated miter sled for the table saw and for those operations the ...

Scoop Carving #2: Starting to shape the scoop

11-17-2010 05:56 PM by Rustic | 6 comments »

Now that we have the rough out, we can begin to shape the scoop. Don’t mind the hole in the scoop this piece is for reference only after we have the general shape that we want I took it over to the drill press and bored a 5/8ths inch hole to my desired depth Sorry for the poor quality of the photo, was just trying to get the best shot of the hole.The plan calls for a 1/4 inch #5 spoon gouge to carve the hole. (I don’t have one yet, so I used my dremel) This is ...

"Methods to My Madness: Designing and Carving a Cane" #7: Finishing Up

11-17-2010 07:28 AM by mpounders | 3 comments »

I should be completeing this cane in the next day or two, but it is pretty much completed for all practical purposes. I did manage to cobble together a short video showing some additional texturing techniques that I used to finish off the woodburning. I put a couple of coats of boiled linseed oil and mineral spirits on it to “yellow” it a little bit. And I have got the handle epoxied to the shaft using the pipe clamp jig in the video. I’ll brush it offf good and put on a cou...

Rustic Barn Board Mirror

11-16-2010 06:09 PM by ~Julie~ | 7 comments »

Looking at my upper barn door that I made a couple years ago gave me the inspiration for a mirror. I used plexiglass in the door but will use a 12” square mirror (only $2 at our Dollar Store) for this project. For the wood I’m using old barn board that actually came from this barn when I redid the upper loft section a few years ago. Of course my husband thought I was nuts to keep the wood, but it had character and was 1” thick, so I stacked it up in the loft to await...

The Band Saw Accessories...made in the Shop #2: Bandsaw Crosscut Sled

11-15-2010 09:42 PM by Bob Simmons | 17 comments »

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. Charles Darwin…(1809 -1948) English Naturalist Sometimes as woodworkers we face a variety of situations that require some versatility and a little thought. This occurred to me one day while making wood inlay bandings in the woodworking shop. There are times that I feel quite comfortable making crosscuts on the 10 inch table saw using one of my cross cut sleds. Howe...
