Knifemaking #1: Small knife from file

10-28-2021 08:42 AM by Thefarmer | 10 comments »

(Will this count as a post in LumberJocks? If not, tell me, and I will not post projects like these in the future). I have recently made this small knife from an old discarded metal knife.The point of showing it here in this forum is the oak handle. (I will not talk about the leatherwork involved. Anyone interested can look at my website). Yes, the knife would perhaps look a bit more interesting if it had pins in the handle, but I decided not to drill holes through this hardened steel.I...

Toy Chest Build #1: Laying out the pieces and preparing the rails & stiles

06-29-2016 10:25 PM by 7Footer | 4 comments » I built these toy chests for my Nieces (they aren’t technically my nieces but I consider them family!), we’ve been talking about it with them and their parents for a couple years now, and one of the twins is particularly interested in my woodworking shop. They always have to look for our cat who is scared of everyone and hides out whenever someone knocks on the door, but usually the cat is hiding out in the shop, and the curious kids...

Watch Box #5: Hinges, Handle, Dividers

12-30-2011 05:17 PM by Andy | 11 comments »

After glueing in the medallion, I went ahead and sanded it flush with the lid. I did this to be sure it looked ok. I was worried about chipped out areas below the rim showing up after the sanding and it would be much easier to replace the panel at this stage before the entire box was shaped. It would make aligning the jig for recutting the recess less of a nightmare. But it looked fine. The handle is a piece of cut off from the Maple medallion. I simply slotted a mortise in it and the lid ...

custom,furnitureThis blog is on my website, but I thought I’d post here as well. It doesn’t have a whole lot to do with woodworking other than how it relates to treating customers, but it’s kind of a funny story. re’-bar- a steel bar or rod used to reinforce concreteker-fuff’-le- an annoyingly trendy synonym for a dustup Not so long ago my wife, the sweet and lovely Penny, and I went shopping for a new bedMore… and ventured into one of the ubiquitous ...

Fine furniture and the zen of wine glasses

04-13-2008 01:31 AM by Alan | 2 comments »

My wife and I attended a wine tasting a few months ago where the focus was on the glasses. The purpose of the tasting was to learn how and why different glasses affect the taste and enjoyment of wine. More…I was very skeptical going in, but it was an eye opening and taste bud opening experience. The shape of the bowl, its size, and even its composition can have a huge impact on how the wine smells and tastes. The shape helps determine where the wine hits your tongue and how the flavors ...
