Unintended “Steampunk” Mallet Build

10-03-2020 01:15 AM by Woodstock | 7 comments »

First off. Credit for this idea came from fellow Lumberjock camp764 who found the idea on Pinterest, where he suspects it originally came from Woodsmith magazine. Give credit where credit’s due. I am a member of a rather active mid-sized woodturning club. “Wine Country Wood Turners” here in the North San Francisco Bay Area, till the Corona 19 snuck up on the world. (And for the last few days, part of the fires in the wine country.) Now with everyone locally having gone into loc...

de Havilland Mosquito muti role combat aircraft ww2 In Olive Wood

08-25-2020 05:16 PM by Pedropete1 | 1 comment »

Well it has been a few months now with all the restrictions but progress has been made slowly. The last pictures showed the Mossie in a carved out shape from a huge olive stump around 3-400 years old you can tell by the red colour. The only tools used is a Chain saw for the stump and a small band saw for the parts also a very small drill 2mm bit . Cutting and shaping this olive wood is no mean feat the wood is hard and soft in places which did surprise me a little being this old, it would bre...

Pony cart restoration

07-29-2020 01:29 AM by lotsaglue | 2 comments »

I took on a project that seems to be testing all of my woodworking knowledge. I’m rebuilding this pony cart from the ground up. My first test is going to see if I remember how to re-lace a spokes bicycle wheel. It’s only been about 25 years s since I’ve done one but it’s all coming back to me. I’m taking the wheels in for powder coat.Working on the seats. Had to build a jig to get a tight joint

Stickley Coat Rack #2: Starting Joinery and Tapering

05-30-2020 01:31 AM by WirelessWoodworker | 2 comments »

This next part is a bit on the short side, but I should have another one in a few days, so stay tuned! Picking up where we left off last time, I start tackling the joinery for the base, taper the main post, and add some chamfers. Here’s a link to the Youtube video: The first step was to cut the half-lap (cross-lap? Box-lap? Finger joint??, I’m not sure what that joint is called, but you get the idea!) joint in the base. I cut this by making ...

Stickley Coat Rack #1: Rough Cut, Milling, and Shaping

05-17-2020 05:09 PM by WirelessWoodworker | 2 comments »

My next project is going to be a fairly simple Stickley style coat rack or coat tree maybe it’s called. We enter our house via the garage door probably 90% of the time and our coat closet it by the front door, which is through our dining room from the garage, sooo… obviously most of our coats don’t actually make it to the closet – they end up draped over the backs of the dining room chairs. I wanted to tidy this up a bit, so thought I’d just go out and buy a cheap free-standing coat r...

Arts and Crafts Bookcase #5: Glue Up Done

05-04-2020 11:45 PM by BlueRidgeDog | 1 comment »

After scrapping what seemed line 100 yards of wood, the glue up was uneventful. So far I am liking the design. Strong, rigid and full of light. The steps to get this far are in the video (part 3). Lots of detail, so be prepared for boredom…but viewer pain is reduced an additional 30% with this release!

Working up the wood

03-31-2020 10:13 PM by BlueRidgeDog | 3 comments »

Time to make myself something. I am still using a pine bookcase air nailed together by my father back in the early 70’s…and I have a lot of books. So I am going to make this: I designed it some time back and just now have the time and energy to tackle it. It is not giant, standing only 60” and 30” wide. Nice size, with a top shelf that will not be too high to be used. I am making two, one for me and one as a spec item for a local shop, so I can put the ...
