05-24-2011 11:23 AM by mafe | 48 comments »

Low angel shoulder planeBecause it’s fun…. Before you start reading I want to tell that I finally managed to make it run!It was giving me a headache, but once I found out the problem it was right on. Here is a video showing it in action. But I will blog a improved version also in this blog serie. Not so long ago I followed a class here on LJ with Stefang where we build a bucket, part of this project was to make a convex hand plane (Krenov style). So what have this...

Shop Tips & Tricks #1: Shop Tips

12-03-2012 10:03 PM by GnarlyErik | 13 comments »

In the past, most old guys like me jealously protected their shortcuts and tricks to guard their job from competitors. I’ve seen many old fellows actually turn and place their bodies in front of their work to keep someone else from seeing how they did something, and they were not too bashful about doing so either. But, a lot of the old knowledge is disappearing now and some hard-learned things may disappear forever. I’ve learned a few tricks in my six decades of work related experience, and w...

The Folding Stick Chair

09-08-2012 01:50 AM by Sailor | 14 comments »

A super cool folding chair! I actually found this project here on Lumberjocks quite a while back when jdtorque posted it. He found it when another LJ, eddie posted it. So I know it’s not the first time it’s been on here but I am aware that not every LJ has seen it (I recently met a fellow LJ for the first time, he hadn’t seen it). But I figured for those who have seen it and may be contemplating building one wouldn’t mind a decent video of how it works and such...

Scraper shaves my wayat the end it’s an iron… A iron is what it is all about! So here we are.A scraper has only a value if it can scrape.At the end it’s a iron, a iron attached to a comfortable handle, a tool, the stone age man, the cave man, working, working with the wood, trying to do, to do better, better than last! Why? It’s a call, the call of the caveman who painted those wonderful paintings in colors of the earth on the walls in his cave, now refined from ...

Watch Box #8: Finished

02-03-2012 04:43 PM by Andy | 40 comments »

Finally I got it done and shipped it off to the customer. He wont get it in his hands until next week, so I will post his impressions when I hear back. I hope its what he wants!!! TIP:Some of you may know about this but many will not. This is my secret to quickly fine sand the box prior to spraying lacquer. I hand sanded down to 220 and then I finish up with green nylon pads. These were bought at the local dollar store. Guess how much? Thats right, a whole dollar. You can buy similar pads ...

Sharpening chisels—forget weaker micro bevels

01-29-2012 11:14 PM by Paul Sellers | 126 comments »

Sharpening chisels—forget weaker micro bevels Controversial though it may seem, and though adopting micro-bevel methods for sharpening chisels may seem to make sense, a freehand convex bevel actually gives exactly the same sharpness as any micro-bevel method, but takes only a fraction of the time to develop. A convex bevel keeps its edge longer, is stronger than most other bevels and needs no special equipment beyond a pair of hands. Establishing the skill to sharpen the convex camber ...

Turning Chess Pieces #1: Prototypes a work in progress

02-08-2008 05:23 AM by Chessnut | 4 comments »

These pawns I turned out of various pallet wood, deadfall, offcuts etc, the three on the right are out of african blackwood, once my final design is pleasing unto me I will turn a whole set. Each pawn becomes a little quicker. I turn them all on 3” faceplates but a chuck would be just as good. I didn’t bother to put a finish on most of them. I could probably have a game of chess just on prototypes alone! A work in progress may inspire others to try as well. I swapped out my 1.5...

other woodworking sites

Hello fellow woodworkers. I love Lumbejocks.com . Trouble is that I love it so much that I have been through almost the whole site and now I need more food to fuel my desire. Are there other sites out there that you would recommend that would provide even more eye candy and a great community of woodworkers? Also are there any of you in the Seattle are that know of or would be interested in forming a sort of club or group that would like to get together once a month or so to get together and t...
