Two Canoes and a Crazy Idea

The idea of building a canoe in a short period of time seemed to open up the possibility of building the boat in a foreign country with local materials and leaving the boat when the vacation was over. I needed advice and went online to find a country, a boat to build and the skills and tools to create this project. Popular Woodworking Magazine and Woodworking Magazine projects. Andre J.

I found myself reviewing future projects that I want to do and on so many I’ve found some woodturning is.

I Need a Lathe

That’s an issue for me, I don’t own a lathe and I’ve never turned a thing. The most sensible thing to do would be make the project anyway and ask a local tuner to help me when required. That’s what we do at work and it’s always worked well. However, there is a desire within me to learn how to do it for myself. Woodworking Projects for Beginners.

Roy Underhill's Antique Shave Horse

Woodworker's Journal eZine. Gentlemen of Fortune. Pirate Living History 1680-1725 There is a lot of information on Pirate Weapons, and to keep from having this site be to "Unwieldy", I have broken it into several sections.

Gentlemen of Fortune

I am sure a lot of folks just jumped right to the "weapons" pages, and I can't say I blame you as this is one of the more sexy aspects of pirate re-enacting. I would encourage you though, to check through the site links though as there is a lot of valuable information and resources for historical piracy that you may find of interest. Rocking Dragons and Rocking Lions. Armored Horse Rocker Plans, Woodworking Plans and Patterns by

Rousing tales of the Knights of the Roundtable and Sir Lancelot inspired this all-wood, medieval armored horse design. The project is packed with fine wood detailing including crests, banners and lions -- all of which have full size patterns. The splash of color is not created with paint but with colorful and readily available domestic and exotic hardwoods (though you could use paints). The plan outlines instructions for building the armor-clad horse, shield, sword, battle axe and the jousting pole stand with supporting sabers on the base. The finished rocking horse is intended to be a display piece but with modifications, supervised children could ride. Finished size is 54" to top of the pole, 40" to the top of the horse's head, and a 30" seat height. Woodcrafting Plans and Patterns, Yard Art Patterns, Tools and Supplies by Sherwood Creations.

The items to be created and then the structure is explained by itself when you set the dimensions of the wood panels in conjunction with the plans.
