Frame Saw #1: Building a frame saw

11-08-2017 12:39 AM by Schade | 4 comments »

Now that i have a proper Work Bench I decided to build a frame saw so I have something to use to build future projects, such as a tool chest.I watched several videos online and also bought a video about making frame saws by Isaac from Blackburn tools.I liked the looks of Isaac’s but I didn’t like the way the blade mounted. So I decided to mount the blade in the handles like Paul Sellers did in his design. I used a bunch of scrap wood from other projects I’ve done over...

Woodworking with Kids, my first class

02-19-2017 04:00 PM by Jack McKee | 1 comment »

Woodworking with Kids, my first class The excitement and interest of my own kids about using tools, about building, and about woodworking taught me how competent kids could be and inspired me to volunteer to do woodworking at my sons’ school. My plan was for the children to arrive with an idea of something to build and I would help them build it. From woodworking with my own kids I knew enough to collect a workbench, kid-...

Intarsia Basics #1: Introduction and Invitation to All.

03-18-2012 10:53 PM by KoryK | 41 comments »

Hello to all and all are Welcome, Intro: Hi, my name is Kory Kiker and a couple of weeks ago Ms. Debbie contacted me about conducting an online class for those interested in learning the art of intarsia. I was very excited about the chance to share a few things I have learned in the last three years of doing intarsia art. Before intarsia I did a lot of wood carving so I hope this helps give each project more depth and definition. I will tell you now that most of the things I’ve lear...

shoe bench #9: Finish and Finished

07-31-2011 12:54 AM by coloradoclimber | 1 comment »

To finish the bench I used my favorite finish, a few coats of thinned tung oil followed by paste wax. I like an oil finish because I think it leaves the most natural feeling surface. It may not be the most durable but I like the look and the feel and it is pretty easy to renew. This bench shouldn’t be seeing harsh use, not like a table or desk top. I added a couple drawers for scarves or gloves, and I’ll probably end up with a row of coat hooks on the wall behind it, but it&...

Build Your Own Dovetail Saw #1: - Introduction

10-28-2013 02:37 AM by ErikF | 11 comments »

I have posted a few saws on here lately and have been asked to put a blog together showing how I go about making them. This is an intro and overview of the method I am using, I’m sure there are many ways to do this but I will show what works for me. I started getting interested in saws last year when I started cutting some of my joints by hand. I was using a Japanese pull saw as my go to saw but had issues with it tracking a line and the blade was very flimsy. I upgraded to a Verita...

How To: Bentwood Rings

08-21-2011 08:16 AM by rance | 19 comments »

I started to tag this on to someone else’s project post but thought they might not appreciate me hijacking their thread. So here it goes: HOW TO BUILD A (BEGINNER’S) BENTWOOD RING:   1) Soak your thin veneer of choice in some water for a while. It doesn’t even have to be hot water.  2) Glue and wrap said veneer around a ‘thing’(preferrably a round ‘thing’) and let it dry. Go-Rilla glue works.  3) Remove it from the ‘thing&#...

Disposable KerfMaker

06-14-2011 08:35 AM by rance | 31 comments »

Well, yes, the Kerf Maker is a very clever jig. I have a different take on its manufacture. I see a reason to have several, NO, Wait… Why not make them DISPOSABLE? :) I had a need to use one today so why not make one. Here it is:  I used a stick of about 1/2” square pine. Yeah, Pine(or is that Poplar?). And some double sided tape. Cut the stick in half. (I’m kinda protective of my tape. Can ya tell?)  Then stick both halves together with the tape. &n...

Spoon Making: It’s Addictive

10-07-2012 09:42 PM by woodpezzer | 12 comments »

A while back my mother-in-law mentioned needing a few wooden spoons. She prefers wood utensils when making goodies like chicken & dumplings. The reason being, wooden spoons won’t tear the dumpling as much as metal or hard plastic. I made a couple spoons in early summer and didn’t care much for it but I decided to give it another try.. just for her cause she’s awesome. We had a family reunion coming up and she always makes a huge batch of dumplings so I knew she would want something with a...

Instructions For Making A Wine Bottle Balancer.

11-04-2011 07:49 AM by Trev_Batstone | 1 comment »

Here are the instructions for making my style of the wine bottle balancer: 1. Cut pieces to size on the table saw: 3”x12” (3/4” stock). 2. Drill angle hole at 45 degrees, 3” from one end on the drill press with a 1 3/8” forstner bit. 3. Cut rounded top on band saw, jig saw, or scroll saw. 4. Round over edges on both sides of the board with a round-over bit on router table (this is optional, but it just makes for a more decorative look and...
