About five years ago I started making cameras. In this video I want to show you parts of the process, from start to finish. Everything is handmade. I build all my cameras in quality wood like walnut, cherry or other suitable hardwoods. These handcrafted wooden cameras are used for wet plate photography. I hope you enjoy this video.
Carving a wooden bowl is easier than you might think. In the video below I only used some cheap chisels, a coping saw, and a propane torch. Burning the wood gives it a nice smooth surface and makes the grain stand out. In the video, I use spruce from cheap construction grade lumber.
In this tutorial, I will show you how you can make a woodcut relief print using a CNC machine. I use F-engrave (free software) to make the Gcode and UGS (Universal Gcode Sender) to run the code on my Shapeoko 3. I also use Adobe Illustrator to make the DXF file, but Inkscape is a good free alternative.
In this video, I am building a workbench for woodworking. I wanted it to be robust but affordable, so I built it from construction grade lumber (2×4) and stuff I got for free (old tables, etc.)
I also used some plywood to make the storage units look beautiful. The workbench is massive just as it is, but when it’s filled with tools and hardware like screws and stuff, I have a problem lifting it (more content below the video).
