Tapered cutterfinale Here we are at the grand finale…Or just me finally trusting I got to understand how it works.So ready to cut into the wood. Yes, I actually think I got it and so well that I can make any size or type I want from now in app a hour, so yes it was well worth the ride, now I have to find some projects, where I can use the tools… Even it was not the purpose, the purpose was just to play and understand. So back to that wonderful piece of beech that I sh...

Workbench build #4: Coming together.

12-18-2016 12:21 AM by curliejones | 2 comments »

I’ve been at this for much of the last 3 weeks and have a bit to go to reach what I’ll call completion. There’s lots of benches built to suit one style or another, albeit English/Nicholson, Roubou, and I researched benches ad nauseum to come up with a hybrid design I can call my own. One side of the bench has an apron for stabilizing the legs and the other side has a tenon through the thick top, as well as a bottom stretcher – sorta kinda maybe French/Roubou-ish. I li...

Blacksmithing from a woodworkers perspective #1: Anvil stand

04-18-2016 10:07 PM by mafe | 27 comments »

Anvil standworkspace for blacksmithing After taking a blacksmithing class I realized there were no way back for me, I needed to have this possibility in my workshop, the ability to make, repurpose, restore tools for woodworking on my own, to forge the blade, then give it a handle or a body and finally make shaves with it, is for me the feeling of a full circle. Ohhh yes and then it is just another chance to learn new, to open new paths and get a wider perspective, so yes the child in me ar...

Making a Folding/Pocket Knife #1: Layout, stock removal, and mechanisms

03-17-2013 07:26 AM by bobasaurus | 2 comments »

(This is mostly metalworking, though it does use wooden jigs and scales eventually) After building a cheap folding knife kit from Woodcraft (which was just making some scales, bolting things together, and sanding/finishing), I became interested in making one myself from scratch. I talked to a coworker who makes knifes and did some internet research before placing an order for lots of knife stuff from Jantz supply: This includes a flat bar of O1 tool steel for the blade and mechanis...

Tips for Building a Freestyle End Grain Cutting Board

11-12-2013 05:04 PM by JL7 | 19 comments »

Lately I’ve been building some end grain boards that don’t follow the “traditional” convention of the repeating pattern from one end to the other. Examples: I call them Freestyle boards. I put together a video that shows some cutting and gluing tips: I really don’t have a lot of detail photos of some of the more complex blocks but I will share what I have so far: These are some of the shapes: The diamond shapes were inspire...

Homemade Band sawmill #1: Building the frame

10-03-2014 07:37 PM by geekwoodworker | 12 comments »

I have been thinking of building a small band sawmill for about a year or more and finally decided to make one. I built a bandsaw from Mathias at woodgears and love it. So I decided to use the same design but modify it to cut horizontally. It will only be used for small logs 6 feet long and no bigger than 28 inches in diameter.It needs to break down easily for transport to my dads and back. I like the lumber smith saw so I think I will make it similar. http://www.lumbersmith.com/ The frame...

Alexander DIY reamer - need help on how to sharpen

11-24-2010 06:29 AM by daltxguy | 9 comments »

I built the ‘Alexander saw steel tapered reamer’ based on the information found on Jennie Alexander’s green woodworking website. SawSteelTaperedReamerPlans I’m having some trouble understanding the instruction on how to sharpen the back edge of the saw blade, which works as a scraper to form the tapered hole. Here’s what mine looks like now – As you may be able to make it out, it’s just a square edge right now. Alexander says this abo...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #14: Wooden Screw - Another attempt

10-19-2012 02:02 PM by Mauricio | 61 comments »

It didnt turn out well, still licking my wounds. Here is briefly what happened… Made a new jigAfter one test screw, I successfuly made one that had reasonable little chipping, I was happy with it.I actually cut the hub off a reject screw and reused it on this one. Tapped the leg Tried the screw, but it binds up after a little bit. I kept tapping the threads deeper and deeper hoping it would fit but it wasn’t the diameter of the hole, it was the thread pitch, and since the...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #4: Wooden Screw

03-30-2012 03:52 PM by Mauricio | 28 comments »

Hello again my friends, I finally got some time to work more on my wooden screw. So here is what I’ve done. First the layout, same pitch as the tap, I also lay out the groove for the external garter. Then saw to the line. I also used a set of dividers to score a center line between the kerfs. Next I use a pencil and my fingers as a fence and mark out a quarter inch chamfer around the tip. I sit on my freshly finished saw bench and use my “Leg Vise” to hold the ...
