Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #22: Bowling League 2022 Turned Epoxy & Wood Beer "Glass"

03-08-2022 06:39 PM by Bill Berklich | 6 comments »

I had such great ideas for this swap. BTW if you have not joined a swap, you should – it will push your limits and you will learn a lot. First idea was a low rim open segment bowl with the openings filled with epoxy. Seemed like a good idea at the time. I didn’t do something right and it literally blew up. Good thing I had a jacket and face shield on. (I should show a picture, but it was too embarrassing, and I didn’t take one) After that disaster I made a small Movingui...

Small Projects #54: Rick's Steampunk Stereo Weather Science Station

09-09-2021 02:24 AM by Madmark2 | 6 comments »

It’s Ricktacular! Light show. Steampunk Rulz! Shop has been on a bit of a hiatus for a couple of months. First, parts have been taking forever. Second, we’ve been waiting on the mini-split to be installed. SWMBO had cleaned in anticipation of the AC install and had vacuumed to the point that we were able to actually see the floor. Having been instructed to keep things clean and clear for the AC tech, sawdust production stopped. Things took a bit longer to get instal...

Small Projects #52: Steampunk Unity Weather Station Done!

08-11-2021 11:53 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

This started out as an offshoot of my humidor project. I buy in pairs and so I had a spare hygrometer. An idea of a weather station began to form. Unity Weather Station, on top of a table stereo, on top of an Edison Phonograph. Wax to Bluetooth in one century. I call it the “unity” box because of the variety of woods: White (maple) Black (wenge) Brown (walnut) Red (purpleheart) Yellow (yellowheart) I found a $12 LED module with time, indoor temp, outdoor temp...

Painted poplar picture frame #5: Wrapping it up

06-26-2021 05:17 PM by Dave Polaschek | 11 comments »

I’m a little short on pictures today. I cleaned up the glass, put a coat of shellac on the frame, cut the mat, and then noticed there was dust on everything so I went back and did it again. After a few rounds of this, I just plowed ahead, not taking time for a lot of photos, and wrapped the frame up. So, the steps… The glass I use for framing is Tru-Vue Museum Glass. First up was cutting the glass. I’ve heard folks have trouble with this, but I’ve had pretty good luck. I have a T...

Building a River Table with a Jet Engine in it

04-19-2020 04:38 PM by BenhamDesign | 2 comments »

This has been one of the more unique pieces I had the pleasure of designing and building. The piece of machinery in the center of the table is a compression chamber from a jet engine. The client that commissioned this project wanted a unique way to display the engine. After a few iterations of the design we came up with a coffee table where a river of glass is flowing out of the jet engine.The base is made from walnut that is dyed to match some of the other millwork in the house. I reinforced...

Ribbon Display End Table #1: Horse Ribbon Display End Table

05-22-2013 08:16 PM by SouthFloridaSun | 0 comments »

My fiancee has been wanting a way to elegantly display her horse ribbons in the house. One idea she liked was the Ribbon box seen here This in all honesty is just a short stool with a box on it. I wanted to make something more useful but serving the same purpose. So my idea is an end table with glass sides framed in wood with a glass top also framed in wood. I decided on Red Oak for all the wood including the legs and the frames. I picked up 2×...

I was vacationing in Florida this summer and had my first experience with a Hookah in Ybor City, Tampa. I loved it. Brother-in-law said I should make one since I am a woodworker/carver. Does anybody have a good design out there? One that uses glass/ceramics for the water? I like the idea of four hoses for parties. And yes I am using it for tobacco. I only smoke once in awhile and usually it is a cigar or pipe. The coolness (literally) of a hookah was amazing. I am not used to buying stuff to ...

Making the Wren #1: Start, to almost finished

05-17-2012 06:17 PM by Donna Menke | 11 comments »

This is the finished bird that I started 2 weeks ago. It took about 24 hours to get it to this stage. I still need to make a mount for the bird, and I’d like to make it unique. That means no ‘bird on a stick’, but also not the trite ‘wren on the edge of the cup/bucket/shoe’ environment. I’ve been wracking my poor little brain trying to figure out something unique and good- that I can do in 3 weeks. Any suggestions.ideas would be appreciated. ThanksNow to th...
