Chess pieces and board #1: Pawns and working out the kinks

222 days ago by Luke | 4 comments »

I decided to make a 4.75” chess set and board. I knew it would take a while and it has taken me about 30 minutes per pawn to turn them not including 5 coats of wipe on poly with dry time between. So far I’ve turned all of the white pawns, which are curly maple. This is the first one I turned and it’s looking pretty rough, but I’ve gotten much better since I started. It all started with these turning templates that I made. I found the design for the pieces on the web...

Education and torment #1: Canary wood Box

248 days ago by GeneR | 0 comments »

The box is 4” square and made from canary wood and walnut, with a birdseye maple and walnut top. This started as an idea for the wifes Christmas present and grew to a little monster. I first decided on the box size being determined buy the length and thickness of the piece of canary wood. the piece was about 28 in long 4 1/2” wide and 1/2” thick so 4” square gave me some screw up room. At this time I figured I would use a 1/4” piece of plywood for the bo...

Balanced Work Bench #3: I'm a bit retarded...

378 days ago by Jeremiah | 4 comments »

I had all these great ideas about this workbench, and how i was going to make it….sort of missed a BIG mistake. The leg vise i made, didn’t clear the top drawer. Such a DUMB mistake. Unfortunately i didn’t spot it until i was too far along. So i panicked and cut the vise to fit. After sleeping on it, i decided that too was really DUMB. but i had already cut it…. Look for yourself, please don’t laugh too hard (or if you do, don’t post it) BEFORE...

Worth the Journey

379 days ago by Patti Zongker | 11 comments »

It’s hard to believe that after two years of very hard work Dennis Zongker and I have finally received word that the book is at the printers… Working with Dennis has been filled with learning, laughing, and stressing over deadlines and in the end worth every second of it. Dennis has worked many hours and through all that he has managed to keep his head up high and not loose sight of his goals. He always pushes so hard and his dream was to one day be able to write a book. Well h...

I’m really enjoying the pace of the class with enough structure to keep it moving, but plenty of time to get to know David and the other students and to get all our questions answered. My goal is to establish a broad foundation in wood finishi...
