I know this is a little past its time but I found this video I had made when I was designing the lifting mechanism for Box of Chocolates. In the video I am just using my finger to slide the bottom cam plate. On the box that would be done by grabbing the handle under the box and pulling it towards you. Also, the cans of paint are sitting on the dowel lifting plate. i just don’t have the dowels glued into it yet. Hopefully this helps everybody understand the mechanism better. Well...
Wood and aluminum benches by Hilla Shamia Another interesting piece by Hilla Shamia is this cool take on a rocking horse…..
I must apologize for my lack of interaction here on LumberJocks. I am on the night shift at the paper mill and my neighbors don’t dig the 2:30 am woodworking bit, so I have been limited to my keychain work and ya’ll have seen that. It is my night off and I remembered a couple requests a while back to do a blog on my keychain process. So, here ‘tis! I hope the video comes out right. I’ve been experimenting with my CoolPix. Short videos? I can do that! So I decided to...
During this Sketchup show I go through a balancing wine bottle holder. This has my most recent measurements that I use and also a link for my actual “How to make a wine bottle holder” video. That video was my first ever on YouTube. Check out the Sketchup video HERE.
Welcome to another installment of the Chess Corner! Today’s topic is turning rooks or aka castles.The large looking one on the left was a first try out of some sort of mahogany pallet scrap and after turning it round realized how open-grained it was, not a desirable trait when wanting to work with small details. So I found a more close-grained wood such as maple that I laminated out of offcuts from a local cabinet shop. This one “turned” out pretty good, pun intended! The la...
Yet another way to use up scraps; this pair is made from Beech with Mahogany inlays. Those who have had the benefit of a misspent youth will note that the smaller die is a Right-handed one while the larger die (3”) is a Left-handed one. These don’t roll under the furniture so easily... . ....
Finally a Rubik cube that is solved once and for all, no more frustration, lost sleep etc. Move on with your life, take up woodwork or something. Live again! ...MAKE CUBE.Made from 1cm MDF.; 10cm each side (I would make it smaller); cut 4 squares 9cm,1 square 8cm and 1 square 10cm…... ...VENEER FACES.Glue a different veneer on each side... ... .ROUTE GROOVES.I routed the grooves with a 90° V-Groove bit ( NOTE I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS SETUP)... ...MASK SQUARES.Mask the squares w...
The Bible study I am a part of is having a party for Christmas. Each person is supposed to bring one gift, spending no more than $5.00. I saw this as a challenge. $5.00 isn’t much and I wanted to offer something of higher value. Lucky for me, my wife recently brought home some free pieces of wood. She works at an art gallery and they were getting rid of some random things. She saw some wood they had used as plaques that were going to be tossed. As she is industrious and thoughtful,...
I’m overwhelmed by the love shown in my last post in this series, asking if anyone was interested in learning with me (more like teaching me) about different woods, and the trees from which we get them. You were! I’ve found my people. Let’s get started! cracks knuckles I thought I’d begin not with a tree, but with something very much related and interesting that I recently stumbled upon in one of my habitual all-night online woodworking research sessions: the IWCS, ...
WoodShop Tales Beyond ….two trees blowing in the wind,a mighty forest surrounds these centennial’s,two loner’s sending out their branching eaves,many sentients come to waunder along the way…. ….i was younger in those days that are behind,one worker of wood leaves his shop for open space,out here i am but the shadow of my own imagination,my sentiments to those who can-not come out to play…. ….two tree’s,two loner’s,many sentient’s,one work...
