  1. Floating ring SUCCESS!!!... sort of.

    Yes, I know, it's another candle stick holder… What can I say, I'm on a roll! (I'll yank myself out of my comfort zone soon enough). This is the first time attempting a floating ring, this thing is about 12" long, made it out of Tigre Caspi wood - I've never heard of this kind of wood before...
  2. Walnut and epoxy Console table

    I was setting up at an art show a few weeks ago and I wanted to take something special. I had this piece of walnut sitting in my shop for a few years and decided it would look great squared off and filled with epoxy. Once I have the top made I decided I needed a base that really accentuated the...
  3. Floating Record Player or turntable Mounts/Platforms in DJ format

    Just another-"Necessity is the mother of…."-thing. My studio/apartment in NYC is low on space so I figured my Technics would get more use if they were floating on the wall, rather, than if in storage. Stand- by for my twist on the Murphy Bed. The surfaces are ply. Structure is mild steel...
  4. Carvers and Joinery Floats.

    Floats seem to be hardly known to woodworkers even though they cut smoothly and efficiently. These are some new ones I have just made. Mainly for smoothing down the larger detail on carvings. One is for cleaning up mortices on furniture. All are made from a recycled saw blade and an old...
  5. Plane Making Tools

    Here a a few tools I made for plane making. I used 3/16" and 1/8" tool steel from Amazon, (which ended up being Starrett brand). The floats were fun to make, if anyone wants me to make a set for them just drop me a line and fifteen or twenty thousand dollars and I'll get them right out to you...
  6. Log Raft

    What to do on a beautiful day with friends? Build a log raft of course!! After floating down the river on plastic tubes one day, we decided we had to build ourselves a log raft. So we went down to the river and started gathering logs. Our tools of choice were a hatchet, a knife and some twine...
  7. CENTENNIAL FLOAT

    We won first place for this in the parade. The bending took a little while but they got an almost perfect circle.
  8. Parade Float

    I belong to a local group which spun off from a 912 group. We call ourselves Carolina's Good Neighbors. We're all about our community and have pretty much given up on any hope for the national politicians. While we hope we're wrong about the future of our country, we're taking no chances. We've...
  9. Site Help and Suggestions
    First, nice job with LJ. I'm definitely envious. Got any part-time paying positions on staff? <lol> Actually, this would be an enhancement to the standard formatting commands that are available. Currently, you have ! src(alt)!: href In order to make things like Blog posts more...
  10. Hand Tools
    One of the characteristics of hand tool work is the search for the perfectly, jointed, level and square board. I learned early enough that if you skip that phase, nothing lines up, your joints are bad, etc.. So, right now, I am making a cabinet toolchest (Tom Fidgen's design). Started from...
  11. Blogs
    My favorite "Push Blocks" At times I tend to just wander around Home Depot. I always think that the solution to the problem at hand has been solved somewhere before so I just wander the store and try to see as many different things as I can looking for ideas. Every once in a while I find...
  12. Wood & Lumber
    There are a lot of different kinds of materials you can use for you shop jigs. I like MDF, it's flat and is really cheap, but I've heard it doesn't hold fasteners well such as screws, or nails. Birch plywood seems to be the most popular, but it's hard to find a piece that not warp, or has cracks...
