The making of a goblet

12-08-2007 05:45 PM by Alin Dobra | 17 comments »

A lot of LJs, after seeing my work, asked for a video demonstration of how to make a natural edge goblet. I posted on YouTube two videos (part 1 and 2). As it turns out, dealing with talking and camera while turning leads to loss of concentration. I managed to destroy the natural edge but I did get a goblet and you can see how I made it. Sorry for he slightly rough editing and not so perfect camera work (my father is still learning the craft). Alin Part 1 Part 2

Making a Small Wooden Box #1: Getting Started

08-11-2007 09:06 AM by Don | 23 comments »

I blogged a couple of weeks ago about what I should charge for a small box I was asked to make. I thought that those of you who haven’t delved into the wonderful world of box making might like to journey along with me as I make this commissioned box. I was given the outside dimension for the box, as the owner intends to place it in a chest of drawers, so it must fit the size constraints of the drawer. The box will be 95mm high x 360mm wide x 240mm deep (approximately 3.75” x 14...

Traditional Featherboards...............How I make them. PICS

10-04-2007 02:30 AM by Gord Graff | 22 comments »

Hello All, Feather boards have been around in one form or another for a long time and for most woodworkers they are invaluable. It’s like having a second or third pair of hands that never get tired. Below are two methods that I’ve used to make feather boards over the years, one is a band saw method and the other is a table saw method. The feather board below is typical of what you’ll find in your local woodworking store, it does the job but we can improve on it greatly. First, I ...

"This Old Mold House" #1: Cheese anyone?

09-30-2007 01:48 PM by Dusty | 21 comments »

You would think I should know better by now. In truth I do. I admit it. I guess it really doesn’t matter, there is just something about woodworkers, craftsman, and those of us who spend inordinate amounts of time in dusty, cramped, often hot or cold environments which we proudly show off as our kingdoms or domains which we call our “shops”. Oh did I mention the lighting in that makes you think your headed for early blindness. That said, up fro...

Making a Small Wooden Box #7: The Fiddly Bits

09-18-2007 09:46 AM by Don | 21 comments »

When I get to this stage of a project, I have to work hard at not becoming impatient and rushing the final details. If one is not very careful, it’s here where everything can go pear-shaped. In this episode, I have finished the wood with a three coat shellac base and a light sanding with very fine wet & dry between each coat, and then four coats of sprayed clear lacquer, again rubbing out each coat including the final coat. (I should also mention that I had previously pre-finishe...
