Coffee ceremony shrine for a Svea 123r camp stoveKōhī gishiki kokumotsu kibako. I have named it:Kōhī gishiki kokumotsu kibako. Coffee ceremony wood box from grained wood.(With a little help from Google and a Japanese friend, that don’t speak English).He made me laugh by saying; but Mads, there are no Japanese coffee ceremony, I’m fully aware of this and it’s not ment as an insult, but as a celebration, to the Japanese customs and people. Finally the project is finished and I...

Coffee ceremony shrine #5: Scraping, lye and lacquer.

07-25-2020 10:00 PM by mafe | 9 comments »

Coffee ceremony shrine for a Svea 123r camp stoveScraping, lye and lacquer. Hi there,Time for an update, on the Japanese inspired Coffee ceremony box. I decided to go for the lye treatment, with white pigment in it, to lighten the wood and to keep it from getting too yellow over time. This part was actually quite a few months back now, but I have been a busy bee and happy monkey, in my wee allotment house, where lots of projects in the garden and fixing the house, is taking all the e...

Coffee ceremony shrine for a Svea 123r camp stove Detour, sewing stuff sacks and making a leather strap for the canteen.

So run away, if you only want to see wood working, it will continue in next part, where I will make the finish on the shrine. Sewing machine is a part of my workshop, I have ...

This is part two in the making of a coffee ceremony shrine for a Svea 123r camp stove.(If it sounds like madness, read the first part of the blog, if you then still think it’s madness… well then you might be right, but I enjoy every moment of the making).

Coffee ceremony shrine #1: Using the Festool jointing system VS 600 GE

02-18-2020 11:51 AM by mafe | 9 comments »

Coffee ceremony shrine for a Svea 123r camp stove Using the Festool jointing system VS 600 GE. Yes you might get upset now, because I’ll start this project by telling a small story of a camp stove, how I got it and restored it – after that, the real woodworking begins and part of this story, is me finally getting the Festool jig into use (I got the luck to get it used for a third of the price), after it has been hanging on my wall unused, for a year or so… This is what we will en...

The Overhang Chair in Walnut

08-09-2017 11:37 PM by LeOmkr | 3 comments »

The basic structure of this chair draws Inspiration from the design of the iconic ‘Conoid Chair’ by the great japanese-american woodworker George Nakashima. Through progressive scaled models, design critique and study of human ergonomics the design of this chair is evolved from the basic concept of the nakashima chair. Made entirely in one slab of 4” thick walnut (type of a hardwood), I have also tried to stay true to nakashima’s philosophy of creating mini...

My First Workbench #17: Day 17: Cutting the Bridle Joints...

08-29-2012 01:05 AM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

To see the version with pictures, please click here. I didn’t have much time in the shop today, but I do what I can, when I can! There was just enough time to cut the first two bridle joints in the legs (I did both the left rear and left front legs). I had put the layout lines on the first one yesterday so I was ready to grab the saw and have at it today. But man, my arm is sore! That 4×4 Douglas Fir is no joke to cut a 3.5 inch by 1 inch chunk out with handsaw and chisels...

Trestle Table #2: The Trestle Table Base is Almost Complete

06-22-2012 02:00 PM by Loogie | 1 comment »

I’m on vacation from work this week so I’ve been able to get quite a few hours of work in the shop. The base for this table is from a big maple tree my next door neighbor had cut down to put a pool in. I cut mortise and tenon joints for the leg-to-foot joint, which I will also draw-bore, and a notched bridle joint for leg-to-brace joint…http://www.gunpowderwoodworks.com/blog/2012/6/22/trestle-table-base-is-almost-complete.html
