Oh For Keepsake!

10-30-2009 06:22 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 32 comments »

Its that time of year again: HOLIDAY PROJECT TIME! So this year, I decided to make a few little keepsake boxes, thanks to some advice from The Great WOODini. I also took inspiration from a box Nicole keeps on her nightstand and developed a new design that is much more practical for the average woodworker to make. The boxes feature a secret locking pin. Once removed, the lid slides off on a sliding dovetail. And as always with these holiday gift projects, you can modify them by trying diffe...

A carved, ebonized, and gilded, wing back chair. (Pix)

05-21-2008 04:24 AM by John Fry | 15 comments »

This commissioned piece is a hand carved, ebonized, faintly gilded, and upholstered, wing back chair. It is upholstered in black leather and faux hide, over 18 hand tied springs. It has come to be known as “Bambi”. As always, I welcome your comments AND critiques on this latest project. This custom designed and fit chair is for a very petite lady who has always had problems with chairs fitting her. It is a “modified” wing back chair that is actually designed to be more of an office chai...

My Sharpening Station Copyright 2-11-2007 Karson Morrison

02-11-2007 08:21 PM by Karson | 35 comments »

I’ve noticed some Blogs and questions about sharpening chisels and I thought I give you my experiences and what I’ve designed. I’m getting ready to teach a sharpening workshop for the Mason-Dixon Woodworkers club and I was working on my setup and techniques. I own the Tormek Sharpening System , the Makita Sharpening System . I’ve used The Scary Sharp System and I build a modified Scary Sharp setup using cast iron plates and silicon carbide granules on the coarser grits and diamond paste...

Carving a Ball and Claw Foot

05-09-2008 04:58 AM by John Fry | 25 comments »

First I want to thank everyone who visited and responded to my last project blog; A walnut sofa table with Jacobean influences As always, your comments AND critiques are welcome! I recently completed a commissioned wing back chair for a very petite lady. It has a lot of carving detail so I though I would post one of the carving elements as a tutorial because this was almost a “project” of its own. This chair has ball and claw feet on the front legs, and the clients liked the unde...

A veneering extravaganza!

04-15-2008 05:11 AM by John Fry | 29 comments »

This intricate project is a veneered, inlaid, banded, and beaded set consisting of a coffee table and two end tables. The visible woods are curly maple, boire, Peruvian walnut, anigre, figured anigre, and wenge. The secondary woods are mahogany and poplar. This elevated shot shows the anigre veneered drawer bottom, and the detail in the top. The end tables are 23” tall and the tops are just under 26” X 26”. All three tables are finished with five coats of an oi...

A small table that took a whole lot of work

04-10-2008 06:20 AM by John Fry | 40 comments »

This is my first blog entry ever. :-) So I hope I do it right. This is a photo essay of the construction of a couple of “Drum Tables”. A drum table made of Indonesian rosewood and wenge. A second table of Asian ebony and wenge was made at the same time. They have a 21” diameter at the top, and stand 23” tall. The main cylinder has an 18” outside diameter. The curved side panels are all bent laminations, and veneered with the final wood choice. The curve...

Woodworking and making a living

04-09-2008 05:29 AM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 14 comments »

I think one of the biggest factors in making money with woodworking or any other kind of craft, is making sure that there is a market for it. You might be able to sell one place and not the other and it all depends on what people want. Tim and I started our business 3 years ago, last year “2007” we made $20,000 just off our wood products. We were thrilled with this because in 2006 we only made $5000. We expect this year to surpass last years income. I think one thing with wha...

Building The Holtzapffel Workbench #7: Final Top Glue Up

03-23-2008 04:10 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 14 comments »

Well I found the time to do the final glue up of the top today. Man the top it getting heavy and difficult to manage on my own. I was just able to send the last couple of sections through the planer, on my own. For those of you doing a large glue up like this, you might want to get a second set of hands when you get to this stage. Here are the last couple of sections that will go through the planer. There are two large sections and 1 last board I needed to add to make it a full 24”...
