Wine Cork Display Tutorials #1: Intro

1381 days ago by FaTToaD | 5 comments »

To my amazement there has been a lot of inquiries into how I make my wine cork displays. These questions inspired me to create a series of blog/tutorials to help explain my process. They will probably go into far more detail than most of you “master woodworkers” care to see, but I’m hoping it will help those new to woodworking. I remember how valuable some of the more detailed tutorials where to me when I first started, and still are for that matter. The design is one ...

Wine Cork Display Tutorials #2: Cutting and Measuring

1381 days ago by FaTToaD | 5 comments »

In this tutorial I’ll be making three redwood wine box displays. Two will be 12” x 12” x 3”, the other will be 10” x 10” x 2 1/4”. These are the two most common sizes I make, the 12” square box will hold ~125 wine corks, where as the 10” version will hold ~80. It doesn’t look like that many will fit in there, but I promise you they will.Before we begin, I want to mention that these tutorials will be available on my photography sit...

Slice and Dice

1909 days ago by closetguy | 10 comments »

A while back someone asked a forum question about what everyone does with their scrap wood and cutoffs. The overwhelming response was for inlay pieces, or firewood. I also do the same thing, but last fall I gathered up some scrap and made up bookmarks for gifts at Christmas. While doing this I sort of got carried away with it. Making bookmarks are like making cutting boards. It’s not difficult and its fun experimenting with different designs and wood types. With glued up blocks, it’s ...

1425 days ago by McLeanVA | 50 comments »

For those of you who asked me for a tutorial on how to make the zig zag legless vegetable death table (cutting board), here is my best shot. I am far too impatient to take photos when I work, so I decided to illustrate the process using some good old Adobe PhotoShop. I hope you find this useful and informative. I will outline the process in 10 steps below. I have assumed that when viewing these steps that basic woodworking skills are familiar to you. If you have questions, or run into snag...

Shop made oval jig

1980 days ago by wdkits1 | 7 comments »

Ever wondered how to make a perfect oval? Well one day as I was looking through a woodworking catalog I saw a little gizmo for $19.95 just for that purpose. Being the cheapskate that I am I decided to make one.The prototype worked all-right but by making a few modifications and a few different sized jigs I can now make any sized ovals or circles that I need for use in my woodworking.Start by cutting a piece of 4/4 stock into a perfect square blank.The one I made is a piece of mahogany cut 5&#...

Woodworking Blogs I Follow

1512 days ago by swirt | 16 comments »

I enjoy reading woodworking blogs.  I find them a great source of information, ideas, and some personal tidbits that help give the rest some added context. I use Google Reader to read them all by way of their RSS feed.   This lets me read the new posts anywhere in the world that I can login to my Google Account (including on my iPod Touch).  If you follow even one blog regularly, it is definitely helpful to use Reader as your one stop to see what’s new.  Over time, Reader may even sugg...
