Railroad Spike Coat Rack

09-25-2015 04:37 PM by Bugnurd | 4 comments »

I recently completed this easy project and thought I would share the steps I took to make it. I’ve had a handful of railroad spikes for a while, and finally decided I should use them to make a coat rack. I started by removing the rust from the spikes. I soaked them in plain white vinegar overnight. After pulling them out and giving a light scrub with a wire brush, they looked like this. There were still bits of rust on them, so after another nights soak, I scrubbed again and r...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1122: More Spooky Things

09-04-2013 10:37 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I did accomplish a great deal yesterday, although much of it was the type of stuff that I can’t really show pictures of. I spent most of the morning and part of the afternoon editing the photographs that are going to be included with my Snowflake Damask project for the magazine. I shipped out the project already, and I must say I really hated to see that one go. I probably won’t see it back until sometime next spring. I did get to spend some time to do some painting, although ...

Book Binding Jig Video

03-24-2011 05:17 AM by dakremer | 2 comments »

This project was inspired by JohnAjluni , you can see his project here. This is VERY simple to use and make. The jig itself took me about 10-15 minutes to build. The making of the booklet was easier than I thought it would be. One thing you have to make sure of is that your fence is 90 degrees otherwise the stack of paper won’t sit in it nice and flush. You also want to take your time while folding your paper in half to make sure they are perfect folds, so everything will line ...

Steps Cutting Board Version 2 (Two Step)

08-18-2010 03:03 AM by SPalm | 89 comments »

This is a second generation Steps cutting board made out of walnut, maple, and cherry. The first Steps board I made used a basic square with edge of maple and cherry to make it a block and a notch to do the stepping. I wanted to try to make a stepping board using the hex Tumbling Block design, and this is what I came up with. In order to make the hex do the stepping, I needed to notch all three sides, as can be seen in the Sketchup drawing. The cool thing here is that it steps in two di...

Turning dodecahedrons inside the sphere #1: First ball

02-08-2012 02:26 AM by Yuri | 8 comments »

I apologize for my English. It’s my third language and I have a difficulties finding the right terminology and words for specific subjects like names in math, tool parts, etc. This really slows me down when describing specific tasks. I’m going back to turning dodecahedrons inside the sphere first. See here. In two inch diameter ball I was able to make up to four layers (including sphere) in small woodturning lathe made by Taig. Its all about good plan and good measurement....

2 DYE 4

06-16-2009 06:33 AM by trifern | 56 comments »

I have had numerous requests for a how to blog about my dyeing techniques. I use water base aniline dyes. This technique the dye is applied using 20 cent sponge brushes and cheap paper towels. I typically work from the darkest colors to the lightest, creating layers of color. This piece is turned from fiddle back maple. My apologies for not taking a photograph prior to applying any dyes. The first coat is black. I apply the dye liberally inside and out. I then wipe the outside with a...

$5 Incremental Fence

01-31-2011 04:25 AM by SPalm | 25 comments »

I used threaded rod as a rack to make a fence positioner. This is the same basic concept I had used earlier for a stop block which supplies 1 click every 1/32 of an inch. The threaded rod does not turn, other than a half turn for micro-adjusting. I still consider this a prototype, so I used bolts for construction which allowed me to try different options. I am in the process of reworking the router wing on my tablesaw, and this will be part of it. The whole assembly locks into place in one ...
