Weekend Pen Box

960 days ago by Owlcroft | 16 comments »

Weekend Pen Box I got the idea for this pen box from a friend. I was at his house looking at a commemorative pen he was given for retirement and was impressed with the design of the pen box. I took some pictures and spent a couple days figuring out how I could make my own. Below are picture of my friends pen box. The box turned out to be fairly easy to build once I took a good look at it. I took a couple minutes to determine exactly how It was made; then I was ready to start. Ba...

Old English screwdrivers #2: restore and more.

1014 days ago by mafe | 40 comments »

Old English screwdriversRestore and more… This is part two of the blog. So last time we finished with a new handle, this is another one I made and that we will get back to. Next part is to make the sides flat if wanted, I want to stick to the original layout so I will… I do this freehand on the table saw.(Perhaps not the safety manual way to do it, but I feel safe).

Lag time… Lagging and joining with dowels.not as easy as it looks… So finally time for that lag knife!. First mark the thickness of the bottom on the stafs. When you have a marking knife like me, send by a fellow LJ, then it’s impossible not to smile while doing this. Then mark the stafs. Like this! And now the other side. And time to lag!

Thicknessing drum sander - shop made

2339 days ago by YorkshireStewart | 59 comments »

I’ve had a fancy for a thicknessing sander but a 10-20 inch model costs the equivalent of $1000 US over here and there’s no way I can justify that sort of spending so I looked into making one of my own. There’s no shortage of help to be had on the world-wide-web. The links I found useful include: Dominic’s Woodshop Kawika Ukulele Sander Ray Lanham Woodcentral Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery Mother earth The Woodshop Art Herrick Luthiers’ Friend Nick’s drum S...
