Ukulele #2: Banding and catchup

10-16-2018 07:51 AM by Fchilly | 5 comments »

After a cider or two I decided I had enough confidence for an attempt at the banding. I set up the trim router to cut about an 1/8×1/16 step for a Koa banding. I relied entirely on CA glue to attach this, and it turned out very nice. I havent decided what to use for the backside banding, but i’m considering a maple/koa/maple contrasting strip. I’ll keep my options wide open. The saddle and nut just arrived from amazon, which means I can continue on the neck and the bridge. I’m curr...

In this project I’m building a pair of walnut nightstands for a client inspired by the mid century modern design.

transforming wing back leather chairs into custom rocker for cabin #2: Working out the rocker radius by trial and error.

09-03-2018 09:41 AM by small_shop | 0 comments »

The radius on the original design was 60”. This was figured from a finished seat height of 20” x pi. The speed of the rocking motion was too fast, and the finished seat height was too high also. I shortened the radius of the rocker from 60” to 42”. This meant back to the drawing board on the design of the rockers, but the improvement of the rocking motion was well worth it! Now, it feels more like a rocking chair should. Good slow smooth rock, and a stable feeli...

08-26-2018 04:57 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

4 days to build a simple, little stool? getting slow?Ok, wasn’t too happy with the surface left by the spokeshave…..ran this router around, with the smallest round-over bit I had..

I did get all 6 wedges in place...

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!

How I made #5: Wooden business card holder

07-31-2018 07:51 AM by WoodenWorldDenic | 2 comments »

I used various types of light and dark wood to create a business card holder: walnut, cherry, oak and thermally processed ash. In later versions, I improved my basic design a little, I reduced the lock and made it easier to take cards from the box with one hand. Here is video: Making a Wooden business card holder
