Creating Wood Inlay Bandings...A Step by Step Process #1: A Study of Creating Wood Inlay Bandings...Banding #1

01-05-2011 06:49 PM by Bob Simmons | 0 comments »

“Action speaks louder than words but not nearly as often.”Mark Twain…American Author and Humorist…(1835-1910) We will refer to the banding in the illustration as “Banding #1” for the convenience of identity. For this example the dimensions for the inlay package are 4” x 10” x 3/8”. For this instance the length of the sliced banding would work well for a typical picture frame that houses a 5” x 7” picture. When making ...

DragonFly Harp #4: 1/4/2011 Completed Model

01-04-2011 07:05 PM by Donna Menke | 14 comments »

Here is a good example of just how difficult joinery is with foam. Lots of slop and instant gratification- not at all like wood. Wonder if one can play a foam harp- nah.The foam model has been assembled for the first time- with toothpicks, tape, and chewing gum (just kidding about the gum). I tried to glue some parts with Titebond, but it never dried and didn’t stick well. I’ve decided to return to the original plan to end the bottom of the pillar outside of the sound box. Hope it...

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...

Restoring Hand Planes.. My methods #2: Cleaning Brass and making it shine!

12-30-2010 08:36 PM by Dan | 18 comments »

Many old planes and tools featured brass elements such as screw caps, adjustment wheels ext ext. In most cases you cant even tell that its brass because of how dirty it is. Most all of the old Stanley planes have brass nuts on the knob and tote and a brass adjustment wheel. There are other makes that featured brass nuts and wheels as well. If there is one area of the cleaning/restoring process where you spend a little extra time and effort this is it. When polished and cleaned the brass el...

Flag Box For A Veteran I Never Knew #1: The Beginning...

12-30-2010 05:14 AM by grub32 | 1 comment »

Long story behind this entry. My Grandfather was veteran of WWII…He and 4 of his brothers. So he and his brothers equal 5 total. He left high school early to go and be with his brothers in the war. Miraculously, he and his brothers all made it back with just minor injuries. He was a very active veteran. He left this world 5 years ago from cancer. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to make a box and display for his burial flag and all his medals until now. This one is not the one I...

There are many good blogs, articles and web pages out there that give you all you need to know about restoring old hand planes. Most of what I learned I got from other peoples advice. Even though there are many resources out there for restoring planes I found myself learning new tips and tricks from each and every one of them. I decided to do a series of blogs on my methods for restoring planes. Most of what I discuss you may all ready know from reading other blogs and sites but hopefully I c...

Project Instructions #1: Jewelry Dishes - Instructions for a Great Gift Item

12-29-2010 03:26 AM by Peter Oxley | 2 comments »

I made several of these for Christmas gifts this year. They aren’t difficult, and they seemed to be well received. They use a fairly small amount of material, so they may be the perfect project for that pretty little chunk of wood you just can’t throw away. Start with ¾” material. The blank for the dish is about 3” diameter, and the post is ¾” wide by about 3-4” long. Put the post blank on the lathe and use a roughing gouge to turn it round. Now...
