Intarsia Basics #1: Introduction and Invitation to All.

847 days ago by KoryK | 36 comments »

Hello to all and all are Welcome, Intro: Hi, my name is Kory Kiker and a couple of weeks ago Ms. Debbie contacted me about conducting an online class for those interested in learning the art of intarsia. I was very excited about the chance to share a few things I have learned in the last three years of doing intarsia art. Before intarsia I did a lot of wood carving so I hope this helps give each project more depth and definition. I will tell you now that most of the things I’ve lear...

French Polish Simplified

532 days ago by blackcherry | 10 comments »

One of my favorite finishes is the classic French Polish technique, the use of shellac and a lubricate in a hand pad wiping on method. Now I’ve seen plenty of ways to go about this technique from melting down shellac flake and thinning with cutting medium, so over the years I came up with a procedure of my own by trail and error and have simplified this technique to my own liking and so I would like to share with any of you who would like to try this out. So I would like to post a blog...

Leatherwork #1: the mandatory pencil case

624 days ago by Sodabowski | 10 comments »

Fed up of carrying my pencils in the basic, cheap, crappy chinese plywood sliding top pencil case…Found a scrap of thick pigskin leather at work for 1€, the color was not uniform and the veins were visible, which I absolutely LOVED. Grabbed it fast and ran away with it. I knew I would turn it into a pencil case, but I needed the kick to start it. This is the model I started with, changing it to account for the thickness of my leather: no outer rims, no liner :) http://sewmamasew.c...

Paint Can Bead Maker

877 days ago by 489tad | 3 comments »

The last time I needed beads I had to find someone to turn them for me. Well thanks to LJ’s daKremer and David William Bethune blogs on bead makers I was able to make them myself. I used the beads on the ends of necklace hooks for my Regifted Jewelry Box. I don’t have a motor hanging around but I do have a drill press. A unused paint can served as the container. A plywood disk with treaded rod shaft would spin in the paint can. I made the disk so it would just fit into the c...

Shop Storage #4: Sandpaper Storage

896 days ago by ChunkyC | 8 comments »

Who has enough, right? I’ve been in need of sandpaper storage for a long time. I must have 20 different designs in CAD that I’ve made, none of which I really cared for. So the last design I came up with I decided that no mater what, I was going to stop obsessing over the “perfect” design and just build something. Nothing special but it has some “flexibility” that I like. Each drawer can be “reconfigured” by moving the dividers around. It ...

Tap and Screw Jig Tutorial #2: Starting the Tap

907 days ago by CartersWhittling | 33 comments »

Hello. I have finally put out the second installment of the tutorial. I had to break up the video into two sections in order to fit it onto youtube. In this part I begin work on the tap by making the guide block. The lumber you want to use for the guide should be a hardwood at least 2” thick. Depending on the size of screw you will be making the block can be 3” – 6” wide. It only needs to be surface on one face and one edge. Then drill the hole for the tap dowel ...

Outdoor Dining table #2: Welding close to being done, then wood time.

973 days ago by Ken90712 | 12 comments »

I have finished welding the four cross members that will support the 24×48 piece of granite. The stone weighs approx 100 lbs. We used the same granite for our outdoor kitchen and bar. I have cut all the tabs for mounting the tabletop and need to weld them on the rails tomorrow. Blondie and I have decided that we do not like the height of the table so I have cut 2-inch squares from the 3 inch tubing used for the legs and will be welding these making the table 2 inches taller. I have s...

1072 days ago by degoose | 13 comments »

The divided bowl won hands down… so now to inlay or recess the bowl into the tray so that is does not move around.. Using the Torque WorkCentre, I set the limit stops on the x and y axies, and routered a square hollow shape in some MDF..bit hard to see here… but trust me… This is the shape that will be routered onto the Sushi board.. The template is then turned over and setting the router above a pin in the table, the outer shape is etched on the board..See the stai...
