Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #2: Arched Candle Holder

12-17-2009 07:05 PM by sras | 4 comments »

I changed the title of this series since this next entry uses wood I don’t think I could ever throw away (it used to say “burn bucket” instead of “scrap pile”). I have had these this planks of cherry for a long time. They are about 24”x3.25”x1/8”. This is another case where I do not have a design, but I’ll figure it out as I go… I had cut them for a project that didn’t work out and they have sat ever since. I decided to ...

Lilac Lamp #4: steambending box

04-16-2007 02:53 AM by scottb | 7 comments »

Been so caught up in my boxmaking, I figured I’d better get this box built, so I can go onto the next step when I”m ready… This will be the “steam chamber” to let me stretch the legs a bit. Just needs the doors, a rack, and some steam (lots of steam).

56 foot Schooner transom replacement #1: Have form...will bend

07-10-2008 08:08 AM by Scotach | 10 comments »

Scope of work: Replace transom (subject to change)Vessel: 56’ Schooner Material: Sapele So, we’re a couple of weeks into our repair and restoration class here at the “boat school” and we have something like 8 boats we’re working on between the 16 students in the class. One of which I will be working on is the replacement of the transom on a 56 foot wooden Schooner. For those who are not familiar with boats and related terminology, the transom, on a boat is ...

Art Deco TV Table #11: Put On A Happy Face: Another Round of Veneering

12-09-2015 06:21 PM by newTim | 3 comments »

More veneering. I actually have two veneer layers on the drawer fronts. This is not by design, rather by necessity. For various reasons the initial veneering was just not to the quality I wanted and there was some other visible damage. So the only option I could see was simply add another layer. But the question was how to do it? Many many chapters ago I showed how I veneered the inside and outside of the curved fronts using a combination of vacuum bags and clamps over a bending form ...

I have ben playing with steam bending. Russ Filbeck lent us one of his steamer. I used a PVC pipe to dip my cherry moulding in dyed black water to soak them through ...

steaming #2: Handles for bending strap

11-07-2014 07:36 PM by Lazy_K | 4 comments »

well I searched my garage for material appropriate to make handles/ends for my new steam bending strap. (re: Lee Valley)I was looking for a piece of 2×2 that was dark and possibly luan that I remember having. couldn’t find. then I looked through all of the stuff that I did have handy… beech, could be chair parts, osage, don’t want to waste it on something that’ll be left outside….spf .. to soft, oak (red or white) chair parts again. then I bumped into these....

Lilac Lamp #2: Breakthrough!

02-19-2007 03:22 AM by scottb | 8 comments »

Last time I merely defined the legs (or let the crack and grain define them for me), twists and all. Today, armed with some new attachements for the Dremel I cut two channels clean on though to the middle, “freeing” one leg, and nearly completeing the third channel to free the other two. Apart from the wood on the surface, this is some nice, hard wood, and was putting up quite a fight, so this is the progress so far. The Dremel was starting to heat up, and I think I’ll need ...

Lilac Lamp #1: Finding some legs to stand on.

02-05-2007 06:20 AM by scottb | 4 comments »

Quick update after such a long (long) break from this project. As previously blogged elsewhere, the lamp will indeed be made from a single piece of lilac with the lower portion divided into three legs straddling a stone. Took months of on-and-off pondering, and some brainstorming, but now, having worked out the next few challenging steps, I can put the “lamp back on!” Today I took my Dremel to the cracks and splits on one end (after finally deciding which end was up) and...

Lilac Lamp #3: Tripod all in a twist

03-11-2007 12:19 AM by scottb | 2 comments »

Having successfully burned out my Dremel, I went for the cordless drill as well as my chisels. Judging by the amount of wood i still had to go through, I’d have likely killed another dremel in the process! I guess they are made for lots of different jobs, not so much hogging off wood for extended periods. I’ll definately be looking into those carving tools Dick suggested. Didn’t take too long to get all three legs liberated from each other, was tricky with the “can...
