Swivel Pencil Box #2: Swivel Pencil Box production Purple Heart, zebra wood, Spalted maple

11-22-2021 12:05 AM by Brodan | 0 comments »

Time to get started making the 2 pencil boxes for my grands. One Purple Heart and one zebrawood, and I decided to make an extra with some Spalted maple. After cutting the blanks. I roughed out the pockets on the scroll saw, leaving a small amount for routing smooth, not realizing how easily the Purple Heart would splinter when routing it. In the future, I’ll spend more time cutting to size on the scroll saw. Routed the pockets and resawed some material for the box bottoms and the sl...

Small Projects #55: My first ever router inlay!

10-18-2021 09:37 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Been trying to get set up to route inlays. Well, there are a lot of little bits to it and I finally got it (mostly) working. Its not perfect, and I had to rubber mallet it home, but it fits! Step 1 was to draw the inlay pattern. I tried freehanding it and using patterns from the internet. No real joy. So now I need CAD. My old windows 7 box is dead and gone and win 10 turns it nose up at an old version of AutoCAD. (Sigh) Luckily I found Nano CAD, a free Autocad work-alike program. So...

Small Projects #41: Crosses -- More Easter Gifts -- Rosewood, Zebrawood, Cherry, Yellowheart, Purpleheart

03-08-2021 03:09 AM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

This was an Easter gift for a nice little old Italian widow I know. It came out so well I had to make another one for SWMBO. Then another for a neighbor and another … six so far! Rosewood and zebrawood The “standard” proportions are that the cross bar is half the height, centered 1/4 of the way down. The material was ripped to 1-1/2”, resawn on the TS to 3/4” thick and then cut to length, 15” and 7-1/2”. This used over 22-3/4” of a 24&#...

Small Projects #39: Zebrawood wall clock with Valentines hearts joints

02-13-2021 02:51 AM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

SWMBO requested a new wall clock, “Honey can’t you make me a clock?” and the answer is “Yes. Dear.” (I’ve been married a lot of years.) As things worked out all the needed pieces arrived just in time for St. Valentines day. Got a nice shipment of wood in today, some wenge, yellow heart, walnut, cherry and zebrawood. Being well versed in how to try to help marital bliss, I told her to pick and zebrawood it is! This seemed like a great project to use t...

Handmade wooden kazoos!

01-07-2019 01:16 AM by TomGrin | 4 comments »

I start with a blank ¾” x ¾” x 5”. I made a little jig to drill them in the drill press. I use a 5/16” brad point bit. It’s not long enough to drill all the way through, so I have to flip them. I switch to a forsner bit and drill the hole in the body. I drill it about 1 ¾” from one end. I cut the top piece on the bandsaw with the aid of a fence. I cut them ¼” thick and 2” long and ¾” wide to match the body of the kazoo. I sand the top pieces on some sticky backed sandpap...

Large variety of exotic hardwoods and wood working tools. Free for my fellow LJocks

12-27-2017 05:46 AM by kiara583 | 20 comments »

Helped a friend move from large house with fully equipped woodworking shop to a smaller home. The overwhelming task of packing a 3500 sq ft house plus shop was difficult. Ran out of storage room so everything else was to be thrown out. Thought it would be a shame to throw it away so I spent a week hoping someone would appreciate this treasure. Will post more pictures. Turning tools, large dust collector, drill press, saws etcs. Could sell but would rather share. I only have time invested ...

IMPORTANT MESSAGE- THE PASSING OF MY FATHER, GLENN

11-07-2017 08:29 AM by holsworthwoodworks | 7 comments »

Good evening everyone! After several weeks of tremendous pain, I, Jennifer Holsworth (Kendrick) and my husband Jacob, have just now gained the strength to let everyone know that my father, Glenn Holsworth, had suddenly and tragically passed away on September 14th, 2017. Since we’ve been dealing with this terrible time on our own (without support from any family members, as it has always been my father, Glenn, myself, my husband and my son since forever) it has been very hard to cl...

ATTN OKLAHOMA WOODWORKERS!!

05-10-2017 02:49 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...

100 foot cabinet shop #2: Accuracy, accuracy, accuracy . . .

02-13-2017 04:23 AM by Madmark2 | 5 comments »

Wood has three dimensions and the table saw cuts both X (length) and Y (width) The Z (thickness) axis needs a lunch box planer. The table saw has the Incra rip fence and miter gauge so X and Y are covered. Z however needed some help getting the same accuracy as the saw. One of the benifits of digital gauges is that I can see the reading without squinting or having to bend down. I have a digital height gauge to set the saw height and set the router bits consistently. Repeatability is...
