The Pizza Peel & The Tomato Pie Recipe

281 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 15 comments »

A pizza peel is a giant spatula intended to deliver a raw pizza to the oven as well as pull the cooked pizza out. Professional versions feature long handles that allow the cook to reach the very back of the oven. A version for the average home can be much more compact. The pizza peel I designed can be made from any wood you like and certainly doesn’t need to be made from expensive woods like bubinga and figured maple. And before you give me crap about it, these were scraps from pr...

I also knew I would like to involve my daughter in the making of… which worked out great! Everything used (material wise) for this project was from the cutoff bin (ok, I don’t have an actual bin – it’s just pieces that were left o...

Easy. Elegant Wooden Box Hinge #1: I could kick myself

1031 days ago by shipwright | 58 comments »

A few months ago I spent many many hours trying to perfectly align a set of “box joint hinges” for my project ” A Little Cabinetree” After I finally got them working I installed them on the edges of the MDF sides and doors and then veneered over the whole works. The only good part was that there were enough left over prototype parts that I could make a hinge for my next project from the cast-offs Then this week I was making a tea box for a friend and when...

After two more surgeries and almost a year, I am getting back to the shop to start woodworking again. Last year I made a “quilted cutting board” and have a few people offer to buy it, but I have no idea what to charge someone for this type of CB. If anybody that sells CB’s could help me I would appreciate it. It is 12×18 x 1-3/8 thk and made from Black Walnut;Sugar Maple;Shedua;Yellowheart;Goncalo Alves;Santos Mahogany;Paduck. It took me two weeks to finish.

Make a whistle with your pocket knife and fresh wood.wonderful time with my fiancées son Karl. Making a whistle with a pocket knife is a wonderful way to share a good time with kids, it gives a chance to learn, talk and just enjoy life in the quiet pace, away from the modern running. Perhaps a chance to give a son, stepson or a grandchild his or hers first knife.Hazel, willow, ash or rowan will do the job; the important is that the bark will separate from the wood easy.In Denmark willow is...

So, since this is a place to share and learn, I thought I would take a moment and give some points that I’ve learned along the way. Take Good Pictures If “A picture is worth a thousand words,” then then a GOOD picture must be worth 10,000 words. Lumberjock John Greco very graciously pointed this out right off t...

Vintage Tool Rehab Projects #14: Tuning My first Drill Press-An invaluable education.

637 days ago by Brad | 13 comments »

“Does it run?”, I asked the goatee-wearing college kid working the estate sale. “I don’t know, let’s plug it in and see.” So we did. And it ran. But it made a loud rumbling sound. “Could be the bearings,” goatee-boy said. “How much you asking for it?” “Make me an offer.” “25 bucks work for you?” “Sold,” says he. So I borrowed a dolly, backed up my Mini Cooper to the garage—you’d be surpris...
