Wooden Shackles #3: Production and Practice

09-30-2018 01:28 AM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

So I decided to move forward with the styles and designs I’ve made up so far, stained them and I’m letting them dry at the moment. I chose to experiment and stain one set with PVC primer which is purple, I was surprised how well it worked! As a choice to try and do something a little more complicated I drew out a rounded set and cut them on the bandsaw, a tool I was always nervous about. But after sanding and tinkering I’m happy with the result. The plan...

Managed to get the last of the panels made, and fitted….then spread some glue around.. While this in not going to be a new workbench….I can get some use out of it. Frees up space on the bench.. Hmmm…in theory? Rather than do 1/2 blind dovetails on the drawer f...

Wooden Shackles #2: Fun with Shapes and Styles

09-26-2018 11:17 PM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

A few days work and some playing i got some interesting designs for my shackles so far, the next batch I will push the designs a bit further and try to incorporate more detail work. These are just from 2×4 and 2×6 pine lumber from Home Depot so they’re really soft and somewhat hard to work with for this. I’m still new to woodworking so I’m making lots of mistakes, this keeps me confident that I will improve and so will my work over time. The shackles I have ...
