Hi all! Yup, I’m still around and working with wood! A local bar which my daughter just happens to bar tend at asked if I could build them a 2 Skewer Boards for hors d’oeuvres. They sent a picture of an example of what they’re looking for an as you can see from my work, I can’t do simple and basic. I have their company logo and will be doing an intarsia version of that as their board. Watch for updates!

DIY Marking Knife

06-27-2018 04:35 PM by wrenchhead | 4 comments »

My 14 year old son has been wanting to do some blacksmithing and make a knife for a while now so before i go and build a forge and buy an expensive anvil I thought a marking knife would be a good beginner project to teach him what little bits I know about metal working and some woodworking. This project required minimal tools and my son got to learn a few new skills. I had a blast spending the weekend with him in the woodshop and I think he had a good time too. Thanks for watching https://...

Building a Modern Mitered Waterfall Grain Bench

05-20-2018 06:14 PM by BenhamDesign | 1 comment »

In this build I’m making a midcentury modern walnut waterfall bench with miter legs, where the grain flows around the miter in a continuous fashion. The bench is 8ft long and 2” thick. I had to get 12 ft long boards to keep the grain continuous, so I got my workout building this one. Watch the video or read about it belowI’m building a mitered modern waterfall benchThe bench is going to be 18” wide when finished and I wanted to limit the number of boards I had to glue up so their won’t be a...

New Peterbuilt truck #3: Wheels and tires

04-30-2018 04:49 PM by HotRod1 | 8 comments »

I am still working on getting the bugs out of the suspension, so I thought I would make the tires and wheels. I thought I would try making my own this time. Since this is going to be a heavy hauler, I chose to make super singles. I have seen several fantastic ways to make tires and wheels on this site, but thought I might try another way. I cut out (5) 2 3/4” walnut blanks with a hole saw for each tire, sanded the rough edges down and made a tire. Then put a 1/4” bolt through t...

04-07-2018 02:56 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, I got it all done. A little longer video, but I wanted to get to the end of it with this one while I was editing. Man, you wouldn’t believe the hours of footage NOT shown….lol. Anyway, the build was a fun one and I tried a couple of things I have never done before. My son in law likes his present and has his guitar on it now. Of course, mine got first ride because I had to video it in action. All in all, I like how it came out. Pretty close to what I had in my head, w...
