  3. Marking Knife

    Hi all I had some small pieces of timber left over from my last project and thought I would make myself a marking knife. I used a Hock blade with Ebony and Red Gum for the scales. It is finished with Scandinavian oil and wax and feels great in the hand. This blade is SHARP.
  4. Milking Stool

    Hi all, Here is a little three legged milking stool which is a gift for a friend for Christmas. The seat is Redgum and the legs are Mountain Ash. I used a Howards finish which brought up the Redgum beautifully. Although it doesn't look it in the pics the legs are set out at 8 degrees. Kind...

    This a pen I made from the same Redgum I used in the Pool Cue Joint Protectors. Its a gold slimline finished with CA glue.
  6. Pictograph Wall Mirrors

    I did a simpler version of this mirror a few years back, it was time to make more! These are based upon big box store 12" mirror tiles, a true bargain compared to buying a mirror of any size from a glass supplier. The construction is a simple mitered and splined frame bordered with walnut trim...
  7. bread bow knifes

    These are some of the bread bow knifes I made to sell at the festivals I attend. The woods I used are redgum, maple. purpleheart. The blades were purchased at Ken Craft Company. The blades are stainless steel and so are the screws.

    Hi all, I have a blog on this table if you would like a run down on the making and other info. It is a Murray River Redgum burl flattened and finished with satin marine one pack. The 3 legs are Redgum and Mountain Ash biscuited together and butted at the centre with a keyed join and they are...
  9. USAF Inlay

    This is a finished inlay I made for a box I will make for me in the future. After seeing some of the other posts on here I had to try it myself. I used the epoxy inlay method, (see JoeyG's blog for a great how to series). I used some crushed turquoise and mixed some white glitter for the...
  10. Another tumbling block lazy susan

    Tasmanian Blackwood with redgum surround, approx 53 cm diameter
  11. Redgum (veritas small) spokeshave

    Okay teeeeechnically I didn't make this project, my wife did. I think that skirts by the rules though. Veritas have two wooden spokeshave kits, this is the small. Overall would rate the project 3.5/5 - some of the wording was pretty so so, and a few things were the wrong size (had to go up a...
  12. Shoji LED Lamp

    To match in with the bed I made last year (The Shogun), I needed to make some bedside lamps. Not too bad for all scraps - the redgum is offcuts from my redgum slab coffee table, and the tassie oak is from another bed I recently built for friends. Build video, though its not overly instructive...
  13. Redgum Slab Coffee Table

    Redgum is a native to the eastern side of Australia. Its a pretty hard/dense wood, though I don't know if its E. camaldulensis, E. macrorhyncha, or E. tereticornis. One has a janka of 10kN, the other is 12kN. We Australians aren't very good at naming things. Three different species known as...
  14. Wooden Sports Car Hand Plane.

    G'day guys. I have just spent the last week and half having a bit of fun with creativity. I made myself a wooden hand plane and shaped it like a sports car, racing stripes and all. I love it. It works well and looks cool :D Made from River Redgum, pink coloured Myrtle and a lighter salmon...
  15. Myrtle and River Redgum Thick Walled Bowl

    Hey Guys, I just completed another small bowl made from Myrtle and River Redgum. Dimensions: 183mm diameter x 87mm high. Wall thickness approximately 5/8" I have many offcuts and random shorts full of defects such as checks, splits, bug holes etc etc. So I glued a few of them up into blocks of...
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    So, I just recently completed my first router table project. It was both frustrating and fun. I am more or less pleased with what I ended-up with, but some refinements are needed. I am somewhat "new" to table routing, and routing in general. It isn't that I've not done it before. I've actually...
  17. Blogs
    The beginning Hi all, I was travelling home from an Australian town called Coonabarabran and just as the road enters the Blue Mountains, at a town called Lithgow, I noticed a sign in the front yard of a house saying they had seasoned timber for sale. Yep, I stopped for a look. There were lots...

    Cutting out the frame and panels I am trying my hand at a small Neil Scobie designed box, I am finding it quite a challenge and thought I would post a few pics of where I am at with it. The frame is Pecan, the top panel is aged red cedar, the front and back panels Redgum and the side panels...

    Cutting the burl Remind me not to try this again by hand. This Aussie Redgum burl is HARD, it took me about 3 hours to cut it with my trusty hand saw (which was the biggest one I had) and Black and Decker Workmate to hold it. I can just imagine the looks on my friends at the woodworking clubs...
