Chess pieces and board #8: Finished Pieces Starting on the board

57 days ago by Luke | 2 comments »

Here is the latest:The pieces are all made. On to the board. Birds Eye Maple and Rosewood.I got the veneer supplies ready to go and glued each piece to the 1/2” Birch Ply after cutting them to rough width, 2.25”. I used the full length of each 12” piece of veneer and had a gap in the middle, which was fine because I had enough to get the eight strips out of it. Each strip is 24 inches long and I just cut what I needed out of it and skipped over the gap. I then cleaned up the...

My Beginning Days #4: Grizzly Tent Sale #1

66 days ago by Kaa162 | 5 comments »

I went to the Grizzly tent sale this weekend in PA. It was quite the experience. First, I spoke to a rep on the phone who suggested that I get there about an hour ahead of time… Try 2-3 hours. By the time we go there, there were at least 200 people in front of us. By the time the tent sale opened, the line was SUPER long. When the clock struck 8am, you have never witnessed a line move as fast as this one. We were so far back and yet it took seconds ...

French Cologne that Smells Like Wood?

76 days ago by WoodAndShop | 5 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) A few months ago I discovered something very cool for woodworkers (watch the above video…or check out the original blog post here). My wife and I strolled into a colorful new French shop in Virginia called L’Occitane En Provence. While sniffing their men’s cologne I discovered a cologne that actually smelled like sweet wood! My wife absolutely loved it, and I was super excited about the idea of smelling wood wherever I went. It’s th...

On the Mill #5: Urban Forestry

113 days ago by ScottShaeffer | 10 comments »

“Urban Forestry” is the care of trees growing in or around a city. Most of these trees (millions of them) were planted by humans (land developers, landscapers, individuals, governments, etc.) so there are a huge variety of species that wouldn’t otherwise grow there. In the Denver Metro Area, there are hundreds of thousands of Black Walnut trees for example. Walnut is not a native tree and really doesn’t belong here, but put them all together, and we’ve go...

Pin Router Jig

125 days ago by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

A while ago I put up a project where I made some straight wooden track, compatible with Brio and Learning Curve (Thomas) track. Since then, I have kept in the back of my mind how I might easily and cheaply make curved track, switches, and more easily form the male and female ends (without buying expensive, specialized router bits.) I believe I have found the answer. A pin router jig. I first learned about these from a video by Jim Steinbrecher, and later by a much clearer and concise ...

Carvings done by mixing powertools and woodcarving irons. #2: Where no flowers grow during winter, The colouring.

127 days ago by koraile | 5 comments »

As you see, i have finaly come to the last part of the flower carving. I have the rough shape, and started the last part of sanding and detail shaping. I have always loved this part when it comes to these types of carvings, when at last the image i have had in my head takes form and gets Sharp, its like tuning a lense. The Picture finaly gets Clear, at this stage i have a hard time letting go. On this Project im working in the livingroom, you might have noticed :) Its cosy in my li...
