Monster Wide Cocobolo Slabs and the Blank Give-away

02-19-2019 01:09 AM by Steve | 0 comments »

A while back, we brought in some of the largest 8/4 Cocobolo Rosewood live-edge slabs I’ve ever seen. It was fun to process them into parts. At the tail-end of the project, we made pen blanks from the scraps. Maximum utilization of the resource! View on YouTube

Alaska Cabin #3: The Live Edge Counter

02-06-2019 02:51 AM by Matt Snyder | 0 comments »

When I moved in to the small 13’ x 15’ dry cabin on the fire base in McGrath, AK it was nicer than most of the primitive cabins on base. Some of the walls had rough cut white spruce panels and there was a little hand made furniture from previous crafty resident firefighters. In the kitchen area the counter was a white painted piece of plywood braced to the wall with a simple cabinet underneath. I figured I could do better and thus began my first major woodworking project that started m...

The Box-From-A-Block Jig

02-04-2019 07:16 AM by Matt Snyder | 6 comments »

This is a jig I made that allows me to make a small box from any size block of wood (within reason). The appropriately sized frame pieces mount to the walnut sliders and the whole jig mounts to my router table. I was able to route out 13 blocks in less than 20 minutes. I decided to use the live edge slab from chainsaw milling the walnut I used for the sliders. That scrap slab had some cool spalting in it. Here’s a YouTube video of the build. I hope you enjo...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #1: In the begining

11-06-2017 06:38 PM by Bill Berklich | 0 comments »

In the beginning chaos reigned. Yep, that about sums up my “shop”. Or to quote my wife: “What a mess”! Easily 50% of my time is spent searching for a tool or hardware I know I have and dancing around everything trying not to knock over wood piles or tools. I had a decent shop once but after several moves and life changes I’ve never been able to actually pull together another organized workspace. Now I’m staring at another move in 18 to 24 months and ...

Pens with no Lathe or Drill Press

05-15-2016 02:01 AM by ShogunJimi | 1 comment »

In this You-Tube video, I challenge myself to making a pen kit without a lathe or a drill press. But, let me be honest, I just don’t have those tools. The slim-line pen kits came from Rockler and they were on sale over the holiday season. The wood that was used is Cocobolo. I hope you enjoy this video and make time to be creative. here is the link to the video: – https://youtu.be/arWuNuZQBik

The art of building Wooden boats

03-16-2016 03:14 AM by BigBrownLog | 8 comments »

I’m just getting this blog post started so it already set up, but in the next 6 months I should have everything up and running for me to build wooden boats for people. I’ll be starting out with some strip built kayaks and canoes most likely. In all actuality I have no idea what people are going to want. I plan on just getting the word out and let people come to me so we can sit down and draw up exactly what they want. After I’ve got a good thing going I will start cold moldi...

Cocobolo and Leopardwood Table : Process pics. #5: Shaping the Legs

02-07-2016 04:03 AM by jeth | 1 comment »

hello all.. Now, having got the parts of the basic structure ready I wanted to get this glued up solid before fitting the parts that form the drawer pocket so I needed to get the legs shaped. Apart from the use of the Cocobolo panels the legs were the only other part I was fairly certain of once I knew this would be a table. I had seen some legs I liked and which seemed like they would fit here. I had a photo of the piece that sported those legs and imported it into sketchup. I used th...

Cocobolo and Leopardwood Table : Process pics. #4: Apron Frame & Front Rail Joinery

02-04-2016 07:51 PM by jeth | 4 comments »

Hello all (echo,o,o,o) several hundred “reads”, no comments, so either you’re all riveted to your seats awaiting the next installment, or that’s several hundred open page, scroll down a bit, go read something more interesting. Not wanting to leave this half way through I shall proceed with the upper aron frames and front rail joinery. The apron panels were to be framed with pieces of leopardwood. Here you can see the top pieces which are grooved to fit onto a rabbe...
