It's all about respecting someone else's work

10-22-2017 06:14 PM by FancyChip | 11 comments »

I do not mind that my patterns were used by other people in their works: especially when there is an appropriate question about if it’s possible to use them or not? (there are especially kind and inspiring requests about using my patterns that I keep in my soul); I do not mind sending the album / all my albums of patterns to all those who, I feel, really need them. But what I will never be able to understand is that when a person crosses the line of the property of others’ works a...

A drawn and a carved pattern

10-11-2017 07:04 AM by FancyChip | 2 comments »

It seems to me that a drawn pattern and a carved one are completely different things. And it’s all about their perception: sometimes something that can be drawn on paper can not be carve out on wood – because they would have different compositional moments. What looks good on paper could look not so good as a whole composition on wood – maybe, because of the depth of carving. So, when preparing a pattern for carving on paper, it is necessary to mentally relate it to the patt...

New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #1: rust removal on cast iron top & refurbish action multiple videos

06-28-2016 04:03 AM by MikesProjects | 8 comments »

Video links below… Recently I purchased an older 20” bandsaw. I need a larger bandsaw that can handle anything I throw at it.. I think I found that in a mid 70’s Rockwell 20” wood cutting bandsaw. It probably came out of a school wood shop. The motor is 2hp, it has two speeds which can be adjusted with the belt, it has already been upgraded with carter guides, this big boy saw weighs over 600 lbs. I made several videos regarding this saw which i’ll post below. ...

I received a new Rikon Grinder but it has runs in the paint, time to repaint

06-18-2016 02:21 AM by MikesProjects | 0 comments »

Super excited to get back at woodturning again after almost 20 years, yes since I was a teenager. Back than I did a lot of woodturning in my fathers shop. I used to make money with my turnings back then selling them locally & work of mouth. I also used to sell wooden pipes to the local smokers. I specialized in 18” long piece pipes & back then $25 was a lot to me, still is, haha. So Far I have purchased a used wood lathe, a g1495 which they discontinued the month I got mine l...

Chess pieces and board #3: Finishing Off Lathe

02-12-2014 04:59 PM by Luke | 0 comments »

I usually just finish the chess pieces one at a time. I wanted to be able to get a good smooth finish on them like you do on the lathe but still be able to turn another piece without having to wait for them to dry in between coats.This is what I came up with. I drilled a 1/4” hole into 3/4” dowel and inserted a 1/4” dowel to chuck in the drill. I drilled a 3/4” hole in the holder and used a round file to ream it out so there is enough play to let it spin freely. After ...

Shades of Grain #2: The Secrecy is Killing Me!

12-05-2012 03:38 AM by Ethan Harris | 1 comment »

Hello Readers! Well here it is, blog number 2 on Shades of Grain and I am already dying to show off a gift I made for my wife… The problem is, it is a Christmas gift, and she has been awfully sneaky as well as trying to guess what it is I might have made for her. The issue is that my posts end up on Facebook and she travails that site as well… so I am trapped for another 21 days, and its my own doing. It is complete, I can say that much and it came out like a dream! I do hav...

Shades of Grain #1: From Pallet's to Now

11-26-2012 04:25 PM by Ethan Harris | 9 comments »

Good Morning Everyone. Some of you may know me from my blog series: Pallet Craft. Well I would like to thank those that have read and continue to read my blog series on crafting with pallet wood. While I am not done with that, I have reached a transition in my hobby for wood working. I have been trying to learn as much as possible about woodworking while using pallets as my medium (green, cheap, and interestingly fun), but I have recently purchased lumber for a Christmas project and I a...

Can Anyone Tell Me What Is Going ON!

09-19-2012 06:59 PM by OregonBurls | 12 comments »

Hey everyone, This is a piece of a fir tree. You may or may not have seen anything like this before but it is fun to explore how this came to be. It may be obvious or not. I find these occasionally in the woods. So this is to test of logic. I will not give you any more info but remember I work with burls at Oregon Burls. So you may have read my short article a little while ago on burling. However this is not a burl… So How did this happen is my question to you. This is fun stuff!E...
