Temporary Grave Marker #2: The challenges of a commissioned work...

11-12-2007 07:54 PM by Ethan Sincox | 20 comments »

Wait a second… Is it really a commissioned work? Maybe not. I agreed to make the cross, but I decided to not charge them for it (ehhh… it isn’t something I really want to put in my Gallery of Finished Pieces, you know? It’s more like a favor than anything. Ultimately, it comes down to the fact that I would feel weird about charging a friend for this piece. Hey, when its a hobby, you can afford to do that.) In any case, I got hit square in the face with one of ...

Oh! My Ackey, Breakey Heart - It's firewood

11-02-2007 11:39 PM by Karson | 18 comments »

A couple of years ago my wife met a lady who lived 10 miles from us and she said her husband owned a door and window plant, and that I should go at pay him a visit. I had never done it. Since i started to assist in making the toys for Christmas from the Mason – Dixon Woodworking Club, I thought that I’d check and see if they had any scraps that we could use for toy making. I went there today. They make wooden doors and windows for Million Dollar homes and they ship all ov...

Haunted Forest TWO routering

10-17-2007 12:44 AM by Dan'um Style | 11 comments »

Forgot how messy a router is. Mahogany machines like butter.Photos are the project with one section roughed in … deepest section … about 3/8 depth using 1/2 router bit.A section with the poster glued on and the tools I’m using, less the dust collector. As mentioned in Marc’s blog … Bought a 1/8 down spiral do some detail work. One thing I didn’t plan for was the paper wants to lift up next to the router bit. My work around is scoring the drawing with ...

Haunted Forest TWO start to finish ... artwork to ebay ... stoneware tile frieze from wood to stone

10-12-2007 06:54 AM by Dan'um Style | 9 comments »

Inspired by Mark’s blog on his Sandzen inpired wood carving … thought might try one myself. The idea for Haunted Forest TWO. Photo I digitally edited on my laptop. Layered a couple photos, grayscaled , rescaled, stretched, deformed, negative and pixelated …. This is a challenge to myself. I have never made a carving this big, nor will I use the exact same methods that I have used in-the-past. Hope to learn a few new tools and teach myself a few new tricks via ...

Standup Paddleboard Paddles #5: Time for the water.

08-25-2007 01:43 AM by Bob Babcock | 10 comments »

We should be paddling these next weekend at Lime Rock . My brother is going to be racing over the weekend in his Peyote MKII in the Rolex Vintage Festival. It should be a great time. Here are the finished paddles….actually I still need to varnish them but they shouldn’t change much. The one on the right is the 2nd one. Much lighter than the 1st and likely to be the one my brother chooses. Blade fronts…I really like #2…I hope it performs well with the rolled edge....

Standup Paddleboard Paddles #4: All done but the finish.

08-20-2007 03:10 AM by Bob Babcock | 6 comments »

I completed the other paddle this weekend. Both are all done exept for the finishing. I’ve decided against doing any fiberglassing. I’m planning on using the West Systems epoxy with the 207 hardener and then 3 coats of Epifanes varnish. I’m going to wait for the warmer drier weather later in the week. I’ve noticed big differences in the epoxy finish depending on the weather. I didn’t take as many pictures of the process on this one…basically the same as ...

Mahogany Table #1: A victim of table abuse

08-18-2007 11:20 PM by johnnybwood | 7 comments »

This project is a great example of the following old adage: “No good deed goes unpunished.” A while back I was at church on Sunday morning. During coffee hour my wife was saying things like “You remember John, don’t you?” while I was talking with a few people. A rather subtle approach, I admit, but it got me thinking. Maybe I’d better do something to offset the somewhat irregular nature of my attendance. I noticed that a small side table in the paris...

Standup Paddleboard Paddles #3: Finishing #1 - Starting #2

08-13-2007 04:19 AM by Bob Babcock | 6 comments »

I started #2 today. This one I’m shooting for better performance. I’m only using five 1/4” laminations this time instead of six and only one is mahogany instead of two. No lyptus in the handle this time either. The difference in weight is very noticable already. Carving out the shark for the inlay Dry fit. The splines for the blade. I book matched the front and rear blade faces. The front is going to be cedar, the rear mahogany. The light cedar front will have a ...

Standup Paddleboard Paddles #2: Shaping the blade

08-09-2007 12:59 AM by Bob Babcock | 12 comments »

A couple of pictures of glueing up the edges from last night and then todays lunch break. I didn’t even eat I want to finish this so bad. Spooky night operation. Edges glued up Lunch break today. The drawknife lets me remove material fast. Gotta be careful though, real easy to take too much. It also can take a almost paper thin shaving. After some sanding and some more….the back This little 3M sanding pad with their new sandpaper works really well. I cam...
