    Fancy box for a block plane?

    Not much else going on in the shop....thought I'd try a few ideas out.   Was getting boring doing finger joints, anyway.. Laid out some more blanks, to make a box for a Stanley No. 18.. Should be enough.   A little bit rough.... We have ways...   Takes awhile, when you get see-through shavings..Then rounded up the Usual Suspects... Toys?  Seems to fit the scale of the parts, better..pins first.. Yes, I used that toy knife. Was getting ready to tri

    First turning

    Lisa Hall's post showing her really fine cedar bowl.......first turning.....was really good. This got me to thinking, what was my first turning. I do remember being overly safe and jumpy. I could just see the cutting tool dig in and everything fly all over. Of course it didn't happen. I don't remember what it was, but it sure was a learning experience for a while.   What was your first (keeper) turning?

    In the Blink of an Eye (graphic pictures)

    I started this knife block some time back and then the virus pandemic hit and I didn’t do much in the shop.    I worked everyday at the gun store/range as we were considered essential business. I did a lot of repairs to the range since we did close it for a while due to not being able to keep 6’ distances. So I installed new LED lights and we filled in holes in the walls where they got shot and then painted. So I say all that to say I had been busy away from the shop.   Last week

  • Education

    Education One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor. Research Do you love researching? Do you like to write about subjects in a factual non-biased style? Do you like leaving your footprint of knowledge behind f

    • First Turn
      I've had this lathe for several years now,..just hadn't jumped in yet. Today was the day. Had some blue spruce that I recently cut down,..tree was dead..it seemed dry enough but after the bark was knocked off it acted like it wanted to fray a bit,...so I got into my curly maple scraps. I knew it was dry.

      This is a wonderful example of Danish work at its core, what a great crafts project to undertake, and it will sure to be the center piece of any table setting or this would also make a wonderful coffee table accessories. I love Danish, the simplicity, the folk art that surrounds it, and this looks like it would be a pretty simple project to turn out and carve out in a day. Hope you enjoy!
