Musical Instruments #8: Appalachian Mountain Dulcimer #1

03-15-2017 02:40 PM by johnstoneb | 9 comments »

This mountain dulcimer build is entirely the fault of LJ’er Dave Rutan. I followed his blog on building a mountain dulcimer while I was building a marimba. When I finished the marimba he had convinced me that I could build a dulcimer. Thank You Dave, I think. I started searching “building mountain dulcimer” after a week or two of reading. There are a lot of people building dulcimers as it is a folk instrument there really is no right or wrong way to build a dulcimer. I...

Road Grader #4: Rippers and blade added

03-12-2017 12:49 AM by Pjonesy | 12 comments »

Sorry this has taken a while, I have had a few distractions lately. This first photo shows the rippers in place for a trial fitting before a final sanding and oiling. The parts need to be oiled separately and allowed to dry before assembly to prevent sticking. This next photo shows the ripper bar and how the teeth are attached. Note that the ripper teeth are in dark Walnut and that each one has 2 parts. 1 is the ripper itself and in the front of that is a very small wedge also from dark ...

Loft Bed Additions #1: Bark Trim Shelf

03-01-2017 04:04 AM by chrisjhennessy | 0 comments »

My sons loft certainly has creative shelving and amazing character. As I look up at the rafters, I see opportunity both in aesthetics and practicality. My plan is to add Walnut Live Edge trim to the bottom of the rafters, this is where the Loft meets the wall. If you look at these two Live Edge pieces, these 5’ pieces will fit right in the space under the rafters. The contrast will look great as a trim and the Walnut which will extend about 2” which will offer a catwalk pla...

Morris Chair #1: Morris Chair Design and Cut out parts

02-28-2017 04:26 PM by PPK | 8 comments »

Here I’m going to outline the method I am taking to build myself a Morris Chair. I’ve been wanting to have one of these because I really like the look and the comfort, but also because I want to learn some new techniques, especially upholstery. I know there are a number of other blogs on building a Morris Chair, but they are all different, and everyone has their own unique ways of building. So here’s mine! I am not using a plan, per se. I have been looking at lots of pic...

Giving the boys some exercise on some new wood

02-26-2017 10:29 PM by Mike54Ohio | 3 comments »

Some new wood arrived today for upcoming projects and I thought it was time for some of my kids to get some exercise. So I broke out the no 5 and no 4 for a little curling and shaving work. I am not totally sure what projects the wood will end up as, except initially a couple cutting boards I promised some relatives recently. I got some cherry, curly cherry, walnut, hickory and jatoba. All nice stuff-looking forward to playing around with it soon.

Woodturning Projects #5: Napkin Rings from the USS Shangri-La

02-25-2017 02:46 PM by Scott Seganti | 6 comments »

Here is a video I made making a reproduction of a napkin ring from the USS Shangri-La. This napkin ring was given to my aunt’s father who was a ‘plank owner’ aboard the USS Shangri-La (CV-38). When I first saw this napkin ring I immediately wanted to turn one. Not only do I appreciate being able to recreate a part of history… I really like the design. This is a case where form follows function. I’ve spent my share of time at sea and can appreciate the functionality of the flat section; ...

100 foot cabinet shop #2: Accuracy, accuracy, accuracy . . .

02-13-2017 04:23 AM by Madmark2 | 5 comments »

Wood has three dimensions and the table saw cuts both X (length) and Y (width) The Z (thickness) axis needs a lunch box planer. The table saw has the Incra rip fence and miter gauge so X and Y are covered. Z however needed some help getting the same accuracy as the saw. One of the benifits of digital gauges is that I can see the reading without squinting or having to bend down. I have a digital height gauge to set the saw height and set the router bits consistently. Repeatability is...
