Let's Turn Salt and Pepper Mills

1347 days ago by Bob Simmons | 14 comments »

There is something special about wood turning. It is easy to spend hours at this wood craft while working with the various woodturning tools. This particular project features salt and pepper mills of black walnut with a food-safe finish of Tried and True oil varnish. This finish leaves a soft and warm patina with a nice hand rubbed look and feel. The material on hand in the shop happened to be 3/4” black walnut that was left over from another project. In this case the (4) pieces w...

Decal Pen Tutorial

2226 days ago by Kerux | 17 comments »

Here is what I basically do with my Decal pens. As you can see I use Testors Decal paper. This can be found at Hobby stores. I purchased mine at “Hobby Lobby.” Just follow the directions for printing out your logo, name…etc. One thing I have found using this material is that you MUST use a light colored blank for the background. This is transparent film, but the inkjet inks are not solid enough for darker colors. That type of decal must be purchased through professional m...

Celtic Knot Pens #1: One way to do it

2414 days ago by Gary | 16 comments »

This was requested from multiple sites, so I did one for everybody. Here’s some photos of my process;I only had enough time to do a two-ring knot, but it’sall the same to make a four-ring knot accurately if you follow these steps. This shows the miter sled, the length of contrasting wood for the slices, and the bloodwood blank I’m going to use. I’ve already squared the blank so that all four sides are the same size.I randomly pick a side and mark it 1.Side 2 i...

Wood collection box - how to

2175 days ago by GaryK | 35 comments »

To see the finished project go here: Here is the sample piece to test the concept. I started with wood planed down to 3/8”, cut to width and left a little long for trimming.I used a 1/2” 45 degree router bit to make the grooves. They are spaces 1/2” apart and 1/4” deep, starting 1/2” from the edge. The width of your wood matters. 1/2” increments works great...To enclose and make the sides a full 1/2” I planed some 1/8” pieces...This is...

2466 days ago by Jeff | 21 comments »

This is my interpretation of this cleverly designed bench by Fine Woodworking’s shop manager, John White. There have been a few mentions of this bench on the site and I have been eagerly anticipating having the time to build my version of the bench. I’ve had the lumber for about a month but had to sacrifice time in the shop to get our condo ready for sale this summer. Those preparations are all behind KT and I now and I can finally work in the shop when I want to. We’ve h...
