Southwest Cocktail table #2: Simplify ..... sort of....

My first take was too busy, muddy and lacked contrast. I decided to take what was working and go from there. I definately wanted to keep the Navajo mountain pattern in the Bubinga. Here is where the project is at the moment because – that’s all I have. ;) I’m not going to use Oak. All of the lighter colored wood will be cherry. I’ll be adding a paduak border a bit later. I may be addidng in some peruvian Walnut (Never heard of such a thing until today. Nex...

Wood Trip!! #2: Getting the Shop ready

01-23-2016 04:17 PM by Phil | 2 comments »

Now that I have all of my lumber to start my projects, I need to get my garage in order and put together the shop in the best possible layout. But the first order of business is getting my vintage craftsman jointer in working condition. Oh as a heads up I very rarely and I do mean rarely buy anything tools new. Just a waste of money that can be spent on wood and more tools, but I digress. I have a Craftsman/King Sealey 101.03582 6” jointer with a fixed infeed table and adjustable outfee...

Lidded Boxes #11: Lucky and Unlucky at the Same Moment

12-15-2016 03:28 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

I turned two bowls today. Both were from bubinga blocks. I was working on the third bowl when a catch occurred. That is when I became lucky and unlucky at the very same time.

I had sharpened my 1/2” bowl gouge prior to turning and the bowl was secure in the chuck. It is hard to say just what went wrong. Obviously, ...
