NEW FEATURE: Insert Images Without Sweating

10-07-2010 10:11 PM by Martin Sojka | 70 comments »

I’ve decided to resolve the major annoyance related to posting high quality blog entries on LumberJocks. If you want to add some nice photos to your posts and don’t like spending time with 3rd party photo sharing sites like Photobucket this new feature is just for you. After taking an estimated storage and bandwidth into account and doing some math, I came to a conclusion that it’s finally the right time to create a new bucket at the Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) for...

Workbench #1: Initial lumber and milling

03-27-2008 02:26 AM by VTWoody | 8 comments »

Since I caught the sawdust bug, I have read many a book and blog, watched many a video and bought many a tool. I have even built some of my tools, and while I am a pretty frugal person, I like to only buy things once and do not like moving up the levels of quality for any given tool. Sometimes this is not possible, and sometimes buying something is either not the most effective, cheapest, or best way to broaden my woodworking skills. While I love working out in my shop, the workbench that ...

Workbench Build #12: I'm back - let's finish this....

01-14-2012 05:39 AM by JL7 | 7 comments »

OK – the bench build is back – APPRECIATE all the support in the previous posts….even tho that was a long time ago….:) I don’t know why, but the dog holes in the top of the bench have been a drag on me…....yesterday I decided on a plan and today I made some dust and some burnt Maple. I keep a router with a plexi base on it for various tasks and this seemed like a good choice for this. Note there is a square block under the plexi establish the offset&#...

Building The Holtzapffel Workbench #9: Wagons Ho!

03-31-2008 03:45 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 11 comments »

This weekend I had time to work on the Wagon Vise. Overall it came out really nice. I also attached the top to the base, so it’s all one piece now. I’m using a standard veneer press screw for the Wagon Vise, nothing special and it’s cheap. The first step was to bore a hole for the thread bracket, that the screw runs through. I have to tell you boring through end-grain is a bit of a pain. I should have bored the hole using my drill press, before I glued the piece in place. Next ...

The Eclipse honing guide in useand a jig for fast setup. Just wanted to make a little update where I show the honing jig I use and a jig for fast set up I finally made.Yes I use the Eclipse honing guide to help me control on the grinding of the chisels and plane irons, for touching up I usually freehand, and for Japanese plane irons you need no guide since they are so thick. This is how it looks when you use the jig.You push down on the pull.Here I use it with sandpaper on glass plate f...

October 2009 Shop Tour

10-22-2009 06:11 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 18 comments »

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about my new shop. As I explain in the video, the sale of our old house fell through and we are now dealing with two mortgages. So I have what I am hoping is a temporary shop setup in my 3-car garage. So here’s the tour! Enjoy.

Revamping and Updating my Old Shop #6: Putting together a benchtop downdraft table, and learning Sketchup

10-20-2009 03:09 AM by Jim Bertelson | 10 comments »

Worked this weekend. Isn’t there a federal law against that? And got the flu as well, isn’t there a federal law against that too? I have pretty well licked the flu with magic potions. So not very productive in the shop. Benchtop downdraft table, ala Rockler: Designed for Rockler’s downdraft table top sections, with their plans, except I am not using their downdraft table top sections. Will try a new finish that grips well. We’ll see if it holds up to abuse, and b...
