A Discourse on Milling Wood By Hand

05-25-2015 12:56 AM by siavosh | 0 comments »

After milling a few pieces of wood by hand, tedium is the first feeling that sets in. This is then followed by frustration, annoyance, even anger at oneself as we struggle to keep multiple pieces not only perfectly square but at the necessary dimensions with respect to each other. If one doesn’t quit, we quickly wish for machines to mindlessly fix the deficiencies in our work. I’m no hand tool snob or Luddite, after all technology pays my bills, but when I don’t have a planer or jointer a...

Building a KARA Hummer Layout Duck Boat #8: Anchor Pole Through-Hull Hole and Collar

05-24-2015 11:50 PM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Overview We mostly hunt shallow water and the anchor pole sleeve will simplify maintaining position in the decoys with an anchor pole. I opted to install one in the bow and the stern. These go through the hull and I was concerned about water leaking through the sleeve into the hull. Instead of making the sleeve flush with the exterior bottom of the hull, I decided to make the sleeve fit flush on the inside bottom of the hull, surround it with a collar, and seal it in a bed of marine cau...

Why buy it when you can make it! #34: Basement Wall Cabinets [Part 1]

05-24-2015 11:39 PM by paxorion | 0 comments »

When my wife and I bought our townhouse, I promised to take on some DIY projects to improve the storage options. When I took up woodworking, I amended that promise to make cabinets to improve the storage options in our house. Fast forward 7 years, I decided to finally get to the first project on the list. I picked up 2 sheets of 3/4 birch plywood from Home Depot on Friday night. Had them cut in the store and after moving them into my basement, I committed to breaking them down sooner ra...

One cool thing I saw at the Handworks event was this guy using a Treadle Spring Pole Lathe. His name is Jarrod Stone Dahl. I have a link to his website in the video’s description on YouTube. Anyway, I shot this very short video of him. I am also trying some new things with my YouTube videos. Please let me know what you like or don’t like about it! Thanks!Charlie View on YouTube

Shop Expansion #21: Drawers Are In Yay!

05-24-2015 08:27 PM by Blackie_ | 2 comments »

Started early this morning and plugged at it all day from dusk 7:00 AM to 7:15 PM, Rick Dennington was right when he said in my blog #19 “It’s a proud feeling to stand back and look at your work, and say “I did that”…. The bottom drawers are sitting 3/16” off the bottom of the cabinet floor, I used 3/16” shims for spacers, the rest of the drawers were done with story sticks. Tomorrow I’ll start on fitting the counter top, then doors and drawer fronts lastly...

What To Do With This Board? #12: Top to Bottom Review

05-24-2015 07:22 PM by Mean_Dean | 0 comments »

Hey Guys! Sorry to have gotten off schedule, but I helped move a friend on Friday, and was too tired and sore to work on the box yesterday. Left the house at 9am, didn’t get back home until Midnight…...... But today’s a new day, and there’s progress to report! First I stained the lid. Gave it three coats of Darrell Peart’s Greene & Greene stain formula. Next, I flush trimmed the splines on the box carcase. I used the flush-trim saw from a previous...

Studley Tool Cabinet book walk-through

05-24-2015 06:29 PM by Marty Backe | 1 comment »

I spent many hours over the last couple of days pouring over the new book by Don William, published by Lost Art Press. Called Virtuoso: The Tool Cabinet and Workbench of Henry O. Studley, this book is a fascinating read. I can’t imagine any woodworker not loving this book. In this video (shot in low resolution for obvious reasons) I flip through all the pages to give you a flavor for what you’ll find in the book.
