Hello again, I left off last time with the design and materials for the kitchen utensil box. I started by milling the Padauk for the four corner posts. These posts are 1” square, while the piece of Padauk I purchased is 8/4. To avoid excess waste, I decided to resaw off about 5/8” for later use. I primarily used my table saw with a thin kerf blade, but since the board was about 6” wide, and my max blade height is 2”, I had to complete the operation by hand. Below is...
Last year I made two carving knives and when I was on holiday I did the first attemt to do some chip carving. I liked carving in front of my caravan but wasn,t entirely satisfied with my own made knives. So last week I made two new one’s and below you can see the process. .... I wasn,t able (too few hands) to make picture’s of the cutting process. I did this with an angle grinder..... Thanks for watching
Join me for another walk through the wood shop. This time showing progress being made during the build your own chair course. Rocking chairs from Curly Maple + Wenge & Walnut + Curly Maple. Also a few prototype tables I’ve designed, which are oh so close to assembly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1gyDhW1Ghw
This dirty, heavy unidentified board had been kicking around for some years.. ..imagine my delight when I ran a plane over it and found this lovely lacewood: I scaled up from a photograph of a Moog lap steel. Imitation is, after all the sincerest from of flattery! Bandsawn to rough shape and tidied up on the bobbin sander. Rough planed to 1.5” and sanded through the trusty shop-made thicknesser: Routed out for wenge inlays: Inlays glued in and ...
Hello everyone, It’s been a while since my last post regarding my mini hand tool cabinet, which is still under construction (truthfully, I haven’t really made any progress since my last post at the link above). I became very busy at the end of last year defending my Ph. D. thesis. That’s right, you may now call me “Doctor”! Moving on to the matters at hand, as you can see from the photo below, we have a kitchen drawer which is way overcrowded with large kit...
The container extension made out of ash and wenge. Thanks for watching
This lights in the cabin are made to my own idea. They are not original in the T and J plans. Thanks for watching
Well, the bike is still down. Managed to fix my starting issue, but now it doesn’t hold idle. It’s always something. With modern diagnostics, I can check/change fueling and many other parameters with a laptop. The laptop was out to upload a new map, but unfortunately it isn’t going to help my idle issue. That’s more of a mechanical problem I believe. Unfortunately for these projects, that means that I still can’t do any work in the garage. That means I nee...
Recently we embarked on a challenging request from a prestigious client to create a dining room table border that measures 12’ x 16’ x 1’ entirely out of wenge and Gaboon ebony. The border will go into a newly -installed floor of hand-distressed (and bleached!) American walnut. My son is the craftsman and I’m moral support, and R&D so to speak. I’ve veen in the flooring industry by marriage for many years so although I have a fairly good knowledge base on ...
