Building a new workbench #3: Mortise & Tenon's are rought cut

02-06-2009 09:55 PM by Loogie | 5 comments »

I got to spend a few hours in the shop yesterday and I got the top planed although I discovered that one half of the top has developed a little twist. I’ll wait until it’s attached to the base and in position before I worry about hand planing it flat. I got the mortises chopped out and the tenons rough cut. Here’s where I sit now:

Lumber #1: There can never be too much

02-06-2009 09:38 PM by PurpLev | 10 comments »

It seems like everytime someone says that he has “extra” lumber, or “more than enough” people jump to say that there can never be too much, as someone said: “there is no such thing is just enough, and too much is just right”. I came upon a shop that closed, and they were getting rid of their overstock lumber. I got too late for the 5/4 10’ pieces, but I did manage to get all their short stock (cut offs, leftovers): It’s mostly Mahogany, Ch...

Building a new workbench #1: The top is glued up and the components are rough cut

01-29-2009 10:28 PM by Loogie | 9 comments »

I’m in the process of building a new workbench based on Bob Lang's bench as detailed in the October 2008 issue of Popular Woodworking. I’ve read Christopher Schwarz book “Workbenches: From Design And Theory To Construction And Use” as well as several others. It always seemed like I wanted a combination of the features I found in most other benches. Bob Langs design was the first I’d seen that incorporated everything I wanted in a bench, so here goes! I bou...

Child's Ash Bed #1: Legs and Footboard

01-05-2009 12:34 AM by TheCaver | 4 comments »

I didn’t start documenting the build for this until today as a few people from here and Facebook requested it (hence the extra info for non-woodworkers), so many steps have been skipped….including milling the parts from a huge 12 inch by 16 foot American White Ash board (I need another one for the headboard, luckily, my local supplier has a bunch of them and they are not selling well…good for me!) Not many people like Ash due to its white color (looks cheap) and splintery...

Handmade Portraits #1: Handmade Portraits: Wood Mosaics

09-26-2008 07:40 PM by Etsy | 4 comments »

Robin and Kathy Tucker of woodmosaics stopped working in town back in 1986. After Robin’s intricate wood-inlayed work was featured in The Best of Missouri Hands catalog and commissioned by Ralston Purina, they were on their way to full time crafting. Influenced by Amish quilt patterns, Robin’s excellent woodworking uses exotic natural woods that range from Satinwood from Sri Lanka to Purpleheart from Central and South America. All of the wood is completely natural, with only a cle...

Milling Cherry

09-22-2008 07:33 AM by James Lango | 8 comments »

Does anyone know what is the MAX width of certain hardwoods? The most accomodating to resist warp and cup? An old guy once told me that he was able to mill Elm 14” wide boards because Elm is very stable and resists warp/cup. Should you stick around the 4-6” range for Cherry? Or can you go wider?Different woods have certain characteristics and someone out there knows.. Any advice? thanks

Album Art #7

09-17-2008 11:18 PM by pat | 5 comments »

So far for the next entry in this woodburning series I pretty sure that I’m either going to burn Mettalica’s Death Magnetic album( thier great new album by the way, hit song the day that never comes) or Buckethead’s hit album Jumpman. Buckethead is pretty much one of most over looked guitarists of all time, if you haven’t heard him you should look him up, most of his stuff is intrumentals though. But anyway back to wood burning I guess I’ll let the readers decide...

I just posted the Led Zeppelin and Him woodburned art. I am already wondering what I should do next. I was thinking Anthrax or maybe Cradle of Filth. If you have any ideas feel free to post them. Pat
