Carving Mother Mary #3: Hand Carving a Female Face

10-09-2017 01:50 PM by Dennis Zongker | 17 comments »

It’s kind of amazing with all the small differences between a mans face compared to the female face. Carving Mary’s face was really fun for me, it took about three weeks. The customer wanted her to look young around 15 years old with a peaceful, praying look. To match up to the clay model I made several months ago was quite changeling from half scale to full scale, onto wood. Here are a few pictures showing some steps, Thank you for looking!!! ...

Plywood Chevalet #5: CNC Kits are Ready to Go

08-25-2016 12:42 AM by shipwright | 21 comments »

It’s been a quite a long haul getting all the bugs worked out but the first CNC cut chevy was delivered yesterday and the next three are ready to go. The plan here was to give my students an affordable choice to custom made hardwood “fine furniture” or alternatively an easier home build. I am pleased with the results and I am sure that this will lead to more people experiencing this tool and the fine work that it can do. I have built in arm height adjustment over a range of ...

Intarsia , an easier way #1: I use all the same piece of wood instead of lots of different types of wood.

12-02-2016 06:20 PM by halfacre | 7 comments »

These pictures are in my pictures under halfacre if these don’t open. The pictures I used for these intarsia thingies are all from wifes stained glass patterns. They can be found on google somewhere. Before you put the pattern on the wood. First apply clear packing tape to the wood. Then spray the packing tape with spray glue, maybe called temporary spray adhesive, hobby lobby, Walmart, then apply the pattern on to the glue. Then after all the pieces are cut out the tape ...

Dave's Workshop #17: Handy Mini Multi-Miter Sled

07-24-2016 08:55 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

This is one of those jigs I’ve thought about for a while and finally decided to just do it. It’s down and dirty, focused very much on function and not at all on prettiness. Originally I planned to make a dedicated 90 degree miter gauge since the one for my saw is pretty unreliable. It works, but—well, you know. After I got the 90 degree part finished it occurred to me to try some added functionality. On the board behind the fence I added two fences, one at 45 de...

02-25-2016 03:13 PM by JWags | 0 comments »

My son asked me to make him a chess set. I used his request as a long awaited excuse to buy a lathe and learn to turn wood. This chess set was my first experiment. There are 7 videos so far in the series.

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #21: Hinges and Hardware - Cabinet Complete

01-26-2013 12:51 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 71 comments »

When we left subject cabinet, the last part of the build was done, as the upper door pieces were cut and fit and glued up. Stiles ran long on the doors, as Lysdexic correctly pointed out, to prevent spitting of the entire stile while the mortises were cut. So we know the doors needed a trim length wise. What I didn’t realize is how close I had made it re: the rails. You can see in the pics below I had to preserve all of the rail material… Whew… There was ve...
