Journey into Woodturning #24: 2 Sexy Pens!

11-05-2020 03:04 PM by MovingChips | 0 comments »

Sexy pens! I was requested recently at a party, to make pens for a couple of lady’s, specifically my mother-in-law and step mother. They both agreed the pen they were to receive should be curvy and more feminine. Only one requested walnut and silver trim. The other got the matching wood and trim given out on father’s day. This was the first time I made curvy/sexy pens. I think they turned out great and I’m sure the lady’s will appreciate them. Here is this week’s video: 2 Sexy Pens!

Slant Top Desk Update - Jewelry

10-02-2020 07:27 PM by MPython | 2 comments »

I’ve been working on this desk for a long time and I’ve posted bits and pieces of the process here along the way. I’ve still got a long way to go, but it’s beginning to look like a desk and I’m getting excited about it. Yesterday and last night I drilled for and mounted the drawer pulls. It really brought the desk alive and a smile to my face. It’s only temporary. I’ve not finished the drawers but it was easier to drill the mounting holes at this ...

Journey into Woodturning #18: Black Walnut Candle Holders

09-29-2020 02:01 PM by MovingChips | 1 comment »

Black walnut is a great wood to work with. It cuts so nicely, sands well and finishes great. So, I couldn’t resist getting my hands on these two 4×4x6 pieces of black walnut to attempt turning a pair of candle stick holders. This was a great project and I had a lot of fun with the challenges. The difficulty being a duplication of one holder to the other, without using calipers. The end result turned out fantastic and here is what I learned. I think in the future I would rather a 4...

Shop stuff #197: Fancy root veggie bin 9 - The Top

09-26-2020 05:07 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Bits and pieces, scraps, shorts and cutoffs. I guess it could also be a cutting board video, or, what’s that fancy word? Charcuterie board? A rose by any other name….... Yes, it’s fancy for a potato bin, but hey, that’s right in the title. Seeing as it’s going into a million dollar + home and will be right out in the open, it has to fit in with all the other high end features. Anyway, this is how I did it over the course of a week or so. I don’...

Journey into Woodturning #11: First Salt and Pepper Shakers!

08-25-2020 02:07 PM by MovingChips | 2 comments »

I attempted my first try at simple, yet challenging, salt and pepper dispensers. This was a fun project, even if it did not end perfectly. The salt shaker was made from Ash and the pepper was made from Black Walnut. The shakers were not the same size in the end and proves I need a lot of practice in duplicating items. I could have spent some time making measurements and getting the shapes a little closer. Live and learn I suppose. In the end, they are functional and look great independentl...

Kumiko Table - Part One

08-16-2020 07:46 PM by whope | 0 comments »

I had a set of Maple legs from the small desk project that I did a number of years ago. I decided to pick up some Walnut and make a card table. Since I planned on keeping it for myself, I wanted to try a bunch of new things. I’ve been wanting to try some Kumiko work and thought that putting Kumiko on the aprons would be interesting. The Kumiko will be in part two. The finish I ordered from The Joinery out of Portland, OR. It’s a combination of linseed, mineral, tung, and orange...

Shop stuff #195: Fancy root veggie bin 8 - fitting the drawers.

08-14-2020 06:53 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Time to see how they fit in the cabinet. A bit of fussing about to get them all in the places they need to be. I always run into something with drawers and it’s different every time. A few minor adjustments and we are good to go. There will be a bit more adjusting when I complete the fronts of the drawers and install them, but you’ll have to wait until next time to see how that all plays out. https://youtu.be/mHRhiiwhQAw

Journey into Woodturning #7: Turned my first black walnut bowl... ice cream bowl?

08-04-2020 02:34 PM by MovingChips | 0 comments »

Turned Black Walnut into a beautiful “ice cream” bowl. I very much like the simplicity of the design. There are no marks of flare to take away from the dark wood and grain structure. I really enjoyed this wood turning project. Here is this week’s video: Wood Turning a Black Walnut Ice cream Bowl!

My Partially Finished End Table

08-03-2020 10:17 PM by gdaveg | 0 comments »

I am in the process of making a new end table for my recliner. It is to replace some of the first furniture I bought for this house 41 years ago. The $440 dollar house payments were killing me so went to Sears and got 2 end tables and a coffee table for about $200. It is time for the old table to go. This project was started about 18 months ago. I made the legs in the Portland Guild shop, aprons in the Arizona shop. The top pieces are at the AZ house. The top is intended to be 25R...

Interesting Lumber Source in Portland, Oregon

08-03-2020 05:47 PM by gdaveg | 1 comment »

I stumbled across Goby Walnut Products about 2 years ago searching for live edge wood slabs. Here is a link: https://gobywalnut.com/pages/about-us They specialize in large wood slabs, especially walnut and maple, with occasional myrtle, redwood, etc slabs. But their real value to me is they sell the short ends from their slabs by the pound ($1.25/# approx). So sorting through the boxes of walnut and maple shorts I can make projects for less money. There is a cost from waste. Th...
