  1. I figure pi day will be a great day to talk to about pie safes. My wife has been wanting one and she likes this one that used to belong to my Grandma. It has seen better days so I thought I would try to recreate it using some wood from an oak tree that was downed by hurricane Katrina. This will be my first major woodworking project. I intend to reuse as much of the original hardware as I can. All i have to do is get some measurements, mill some lumber, figure out the joinery, and find some time to get it done.

    Spalted box

    Finished this box today. The bottom was not two piece till I turned the bottom off . So I added a stand. Box is spalted white oak and lid is spalted pecan. The finish is lacquer buffed with Maguires buffing cpd and then polish.
  3. As I stated in my PC build located in the link below I'll be building a Desk/Cabinet for the PC. I'll be repurposing a "White Clad" Ice Box type end table/night stand like the one below as the base for this Desk/Cabinet. The photo is of one listed on ebay, I have to go down to my storage tomorrow and get the one I have. It is in a bit rougher shape than the one in this photo. I'll be doing this up similar to a Secretary Desk with an upper section that will house the monitor. I'll be using parts from one of those Oak Toilet Toppers along with other bits and pieces along the way. I don't work from any plans, simply just wing it, and figure this will look good here, that will look good there etc. I've also got some real neat cast Brass Brackets that will get incorporated into this build. I've been working on what will be the top (Monitor) door along with the PC build to get this started. Here are a couple of photos of the door before I got started on it. It is the worst shape piece of this build, but it came from a junked "White Clad" cart, and matches the door on the "Ice Box" These are some really cheaply built doors in that the frames are simply attached to a 1/8" plywood back which also serves as the door panels. The veneer on this door is in real poor shape, but the plywood is still rather solid. Below are a few photos of the door as work progresses on it. This is an edge photo of the door you might be able to make out the plywood back. The frame members on these doors are not spliced together in any way, and I added braces to the rear side of the door to keep it stiff, and straight. the edges kept wanting to bend away from being straight with the other frame members. The door is looking much better then when I started with it. Almost half of the veneer has flaked away, and I'm not sure if I'll re veneer it, or cover it with some Plexiglass Mirror that I have. That's about it for today on this build. Until next time.
  4. I'm curious if seasoned oak firewood (obviously would need to be cut appropriately) would be usable for wood burning (other than camp fires).
  5. Over the years I have carved many things using the bandsaw for 90% of the work. The rotary tool is the only other tool I used. I selected two types of Oak for color and texture. (Don't know the names) It will be a Christmas gift. I made the eyes 8 times using different size Forstner drills. Some split and some just didn't look good.
  6. Hey, it beats throwing the scraps out into the firepit. Have been resawing some of the thicker scraps.. Trying to keep these flat. Crosscut a few other pieces, jointed a few edges, spread some glue around.. 3 pieces for this panel glue up, and.. 3 more pieces to make this one...will let these sit awhile...may start trimming some frame parts .. Have to rip these down to all the same width. Will leave them a tad wide, to make groove making easier. End panels? Thinking I can get 2 end panels out of the longer board...."shorty" is for "Plan B"... Lid? Underneath all the Poplar and other goodies...lies a 1 x 12 Oak scrap....May just use it as a lid? Just waiting on the glue to cure...while I pick the dried stuff off me fingers... Stay tuned.

  12. Doing a little art/craft show this weekend. That will make three for me this year, definitely have to cut back next year!! Anyway, trying to get a few pieces done to display. This maple bowl is one of them. This bowl was turned to finish green and has a nice little warp to it. Don't know why but people seem to like that. It is 17.5" diameter at it's widest point. Both of these bowls still need buffed. The bottom A little natural edge white oak bowl, I think it's interesting how spalted is the sap wood but the heart wood is solid as a rock. The bark was toast on this one before it was turned at all. This bowl is actually one from the class with Glenn Lucas last week. The lesson was on turning natural edge but also centering and balancing the bowl with the grain and getting clean cuts. About 15 minutes sanding on this one, which is cray, cray, for me. The bottom. Have shied away from turning oak, just never thought I would like it, this particular piece of wood was great to work with, cut like butter with little tear out. Steve
  13. One of the bowls we did last week with Glenn Lucas was a milk paint bowl. The technique works best with an open grain wood like ash or oak. The bowl is turned close to finish and then wire brushed to open the grain. After brushing it gets painted with milk paint. After painting the final details are cut, in this case, the rim and the bead. It's a neat effect I think but probably not for everyone. We also talked about form and balancing the grain in a bowl. Form is not perfect on this one, I can see a little flat spot in it. A guy like Glenn considers nuances and details most of us never would. Anyway, I wanted to do something on the bottom so I didn't finish mine until I got home. It is finished with mineral oil and beeswax. Steve
  14. Ok, so much for a vacation from the shop.....The Boss has seen a Project she wants built.... Hmmm, more Flat-Pack....she wants this to replace this ugly thing.. When this was built, it was based on a 4 drawer Chester Drawers I was selling....then it became a pantry...and now a catch-all...open them doors at your own risk... Too tall, too wide, too deep, too full of... Already had some oak on hand.. 1 x12 x 3'6", three 3/4 x 6" and two at 3/8" thick x 6". Not nearly enough....sat down to make a drawing...while a second load of Oak sits around, getting used to the house... World Class Drafting Table? Tape measure to check a few sizes I need to match... Natasha: "You have Plan, Darlink?" Boris: "I always have Plan, they don't always work out, but I always have Plan" A front view. And, because i am frugal, and don't want to waste a second sheet of paper...flip this over.. Basic sizes called out. Locations of shelves. Cubby holes changed to Drawers...Oak? Counting what I had on hand..there is around 20bf of Oak sitting here...the new arrivals? Seem to have a bit of grain to them...and for me to work either around, or use... Drawer fronts? And.. Not all the grain I can use, though.. I will need some 1 x 3 stock....Hmmm. And the "bundle"...has a couple 3/8" thick boards...might be to build the paneled doors? Bookcase was built back in the mid 1980s...BTW. So...get the work jeans back on, tomorrow....and cut a few planks, and glue up a few side panels? Will do the base unit first...then the topper. Will see how long this project takes...stay tuned..
  15. From the album: John's Shop

    I recently inherited this beautiful workbench. The top is 4" thick, 6.5' long by 24" wide with a tool well at the rear. The top is composed of Maple and Oak billets, there are dog holes and the original owner made his own dogs out of aluminum rounds, they work very well. The end vise is large and very powerful. The cabinet is made of oak, with oak drawers and walnut pulls. I will be using the bench as my primary work surface for all I do, I cannot wait to start work on it. I purchased the hold fasts from a fellow on ebay, he hand forges them and sells them at a very reasonable price. I have already tried them and they truly do hold fast! More than likely I will remove the surface mounted vise as it will be in my way, but it is a nice vise, I'll mount it elsewhere in my shop space.

    Oak Burl

    This is a piece I picked up when I cut some limbs for a neighbor. I left this a lot thicker than I usually do but in turning there were two long bark inclusions across the tenon. I turned to finish and when it dried there was in some areas a rippled effect that live oak gets when turned this way, but much more pronounced. I left one side high and one of the club members suggested I should cut the high side down. So I carved it down and burned the edges to match the natural edge. Started to finish with Mahoney's Walnut Oil and did not like the look so added about 10 coats of thinned Tung Oil. Unfortunately I could not buff it , just too many little edges.

  18. As y'all know, turning isn't in my limited skill set. But, I am a sucker for the odd ball, unique and, strange. This guy's delivery is so nice and unpretentious. Sounds like a great guy to get to know. The video also, inadvertently, demonstrates why you need EWT. It's kinda long but well worth your time...I hope.
  19. Something a bit different....as a way to use up a pile of scraps? One such pile. Have already sliced a couple of these scraps. I don't think the old 1/2" bandsaw blade will be of much use... Been a bit too beat up, lately.....I do have a 1/4" blade in the saw, right now.. Not really a new one, but it is at least...sharp. Maple tends to turn a bit brown. Cuts were a tad wavy. Motor at first didn't want to work this hard....and tried to shut down....until I pointed out to it, that the motor it replaced, was STILL in the shop...and YOU CAN BE REPLACED......motor started right up....imagine that Thought I could just jack plane these smooth....plane was a bit too big, for this job... The Stanley No. 3c that I had just rehabbed, happened to be sitting out, where I could grab it...seemed to do a decent enough job.. I even used it to joint a few edges... Got one looking decent enough as for width...needed trimmed on the ends for square, though.. Works for me. Got a few all the same width, mainly by bandsawing to width. was able to gang a bunch up.. Used the #3c again. to make them all the same width. Had two pieces, came from the same board.. Figured I could book-match these two into a panel for a lid....they needed a bit of work, one end being wider than the other end...bandsaw to correct that, plane to do the edges straight...try to make the grain as close as i could.. May need to add a bit, to get to the width I need. Set the thin stuff aside, for now.. These will be sawn down into 1" to1-1/2" wide strips....to make the frames to house those thin panels..had to set up a jig on the saw... Set for 1" width, for now....may go with the 1-1/2" instead....more to work with. Made a big mess today... May be about time to bring the trashcan back down to the shop? May need to do some glue-ups, and make some frames. Stay tuned...will see IF I can get this done, before next Tuesday morning...
  20. I recently bid a job to build in cabinets in a back kitchen of a house that was built in 1874. I bid the job way high because I really didn't want to do it. Unfortunately, the customer (who is a friend of mine) accepted the bid. The house has 10 ft. ceilings and the outside wall was out of plumb about 3/4" top to bottom. I custom built two 45" x 23 1/4" x 24 deep raised panel cabinets to go in a nook over the refrigerator, a 10" wide broom closet and built in the range. Here's the before pictures. Here's the after pictures.
  21. Saw this ad today...more photos to be posted this Friday, 8/10. @Ron Dudelston...almost in your backyard...I did see either a 15" or 18" Grizzly planer. Ad notes, 1000's of board feet of lumber. https://www.auctionzip.com/cgi-bin/photopanel.cgi?listingid=3129274&category=0&zip=&kwd=
  22. Two woods grown here by my wife, Chinese privet, variegated and I thought I was saving some walnut but it turned out to be oak I had stacked there. The easiest way to get the log ready for the lathe is first put the log in the Legacy Mill to knock off the bark and kinda get it round then go to the lathe... I had to stop and glue up some cracks was the reason I am doing two at once, let the glue dry on one while I play with the other.... and again, this is what I am shooting for. Don't matter if it will end up close or not, just doing one with some carving and maybe a name?

    Firewood

    My neighbor had some tree work done and I caught the cutters and asked for the river birch and the limbs they took off a live oak. Doing some hollow forms with the oak and it has some great grain and dark lines . this is just the turn to finish. Had to allow to dry a few days to sand well as the wet end grain did not sand well.
  24. Had a request from facility mgr at church for tissue boxes so they would not get crushed. So this is the beginning PIP. That small piece on the corner is tyo glue on the slide for a handle. view of the bottom dados r e test fit of bottom. After this discovered I had a gap on ends of slide so will have to fill that. More later this week
