LJ friends and gifts. #40: Friendship and Knifes travelling the oceans - the SPRAD knifes

08-12-2019 09:27 AM by mafe | 18 comments »

Friendship and Knifes travelling the oceansthe SPRAD knifes Once upon a time there were a man called Dave in the wild wild West, he originally came all the way from Poland, Dave imported wonderful laminated carving knife blades from Sweden and Birch bark from Russia, that came over land and over oceans to his workshop in America, where he with his bare hands and teeth’s created two knifes (not sure if he used his teeth’s, but I liked the sound of it). Well once he was finished ...

Christmas Gifts #4: Picture frames are harder than I thought...

01-04-2019 12:08 AM by HandyHousewife | 3 comments »

My parents just moved into a new house, so for a Christmas/Housewarming gift I thought a pair of picture frames in purple heart (purple is my mom’s favorite color) would be just perfect. What I didn’t know was how difficult making a perfect set of frames can be. Nor how long it can take to make them. Since I’m supposedly a millennial, I did what millennials do—watch YouTube videos to figure out how to make them. “Woodwork Web” and “Fix This Build T...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #99: Child's Tool Box & Tea Light Sets

12-18-2018 04:10 PM by technoslick | 6 comments »

Finally making some progress on the gift building. The neighbor’s two year old is into tools, so I made for him a child’s size carpenter’s tool box. The sides and bottom are red oak, the ends hard maple, and the handle and pins out of poplar dowels. The tea light sets are going out to friends and family. The pines bases were cut from the staves of a large cable spool. While the holders will accept tea light candles, for safety sake I am using their LED counterpart. ...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #96: Progress: Raised Dog Bowl Holders

12-12-2018 11:17 PM by technoslick | 2 comments »

I promised my youngest daughter for Christmas raised dog bowl holders for her two dogs. These are based on plans from Build Something. I posted in an earlier blog entry the prototype I built using vinyl-laminated chipboard and pine studs for the legs. You can see it in the picture, in front of the unfinished units. You may notice the two new units are longer and wider (an inch both ways) than the prototype, which was designed for a smaller bowl than I am going to use. Originally, I was...

Holiday Gifts #5: So Glad...

01-02-2016 12:40 AM by Sioranth | 0 comments »

...To be done with these planned gifts. I believe I must have been cursed from the beginning as I’ve never had such a horrid time trying to make something. I had to completely scrap my father’s first six-pack holder and make an entirely new one (after several childish hissy fits on my part). My mother’s gift was still being glued back together tonight, so it just needs to hold until tomorrow then they will be in their possession. Sheer stubbornness is the only reason thes...

Holiday Gifts #3: Reindeer Reborn

12-12-2015 01:27 PM by Sioranth | 0 comments »

So, after taking some time to get over my hissy fit about the rocking reindeer, I once again approached them – this time with a tube of E6000. I carefully glued all the broken bits back together and then proceeded with FINALLY attaching the rockers to the legs. This time everything stayed together (thank you epoxy!). I’ve had them sitting on a shelf for a few days now to let the epoxy cure, and I’m going to, with some trepidation, to take them back to the shop today to tr...

Holiday Gifts #1: Inspiration and Ideas

10-29-2015 12:28 PM by Sioranth | 2 comments »

I inadvertently have found myself in a position where there is an expectation of woodworking gifts for the holidays this year. I guess that’s what I get for posting all my little projects on Facebook where my family can see them. So, for my father I am going to be making a six-pack beer tote out of mahogany and quarter sawn sycamore. I’m hoping it looks as good as I envision it will when it’s finished. It’s going to have rare earth magnets for catching the bottle ca...

Texas Tech Pool Cue Rack #1: Design

11-15-2013 05:20 PM by ConstructionBoss | 2 comments »

My Brother-in-Law has a pool table in his condo and every time we go over there, the pool cues are laying on a table or on the bar chairs. He also has a table top to convert it to a ping pong, or in their case beer pong table, so the accessories need a place to go. After our last visit, I told my wife maybe I should make him a pool cue rack for Christmas. She liked the idea, but as with anything, I needed to make sure I had her buy in before pumping something out that she might not like. ...

I have put together a collection of my past projects that are relativity fast and simple to make. They make great gifts. Time to go out to the shop and make some sawdust! Any other good ideas!
