Cute Little Shaver, Ain't It?

01-30-2015 09:25 AM by handsawgeek | 0 comments »

Every woodworker should have one of these in their tool kit. A thumb plane. Nothing more than a real small plane with a blade no more than one inch wide. For being so small, it has a lot of versatility. I use mine mostly for creating small chamfers, or for easing sharp corners on project components, but it is also a great little tool to grab for trimming veneer edges, cleaning up small dovetailed or box jointed corners, flush trimming dowels, and even finish smoothing work on ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1486: My Art Play Date Projects DONE!

01-30-2015 07:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

It is with much relief that I am writing this morning. It isn't usual that I get stressed out over doing a project, but these past few weeks have been somewhat worrisome to me. I mentioned the other day that I was invited to participate in the Art Play Date online class event, and while I was thrilled to be asked to teach, I was somewhat intimidated. After all, the line up of teachers included many teachers that I have followed and admired since I began painting. These were what we c...

Wooden Reamer #2: Wrapping it up

01-30-2015 12:34 AM by siavosh | 2 comments »

With the blade ready, it was time to finally really use my new spokeshave. The result isn’t as elegant as I hoped for, but it seems to do the trick. The compass blade provides a very slight taper, but I think that’s what’s recommended for most chair work. We will see. << Sorry about the side ways pictures! >> Next, I’m hoping I can start to work on the matching spindle shaver to make a matching tight tenon.

Misc. Shop Stuff #50: New / Old Marking Knife

01-29-2015 08:11 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 12 comments »

Went on a run to a few flea markets this afternoon and found a few things to continue my slide down the slippery slope of vintage tooldom: The 7oz SW hammer was a nice find at four bucks, as was the Craftsman-badged saw for six dollars. The Stanley 1/4” No.40 chisel was four bucks, the EC Stearns mitre box was five, and the seller threw in the small, rosewood-handled putty knife for free. And there was a plan for it: I wanted to make it a marking knife for the tool chest. I ha...

Blogging instead of Woodworking #16: Prairie Sofa & Loveseat, Part 1

01-29-2015 03:28 PM by Douglas | 1 comment »

I’ve just started a big furniture build, both a sofa and loveseat. The shop is going to get crowded. I’ve started a build series on it on my blog. This time, I get to start with the tree the lumber came from, sustainably, urban-ly harvested from the U of Chicago campus!

I'm building an Army #6: The battlefield

01-29-2015 12:50 PM by Gianni | 3 comments »

After a flurry of activity getting all of the pieces cut over Christmas shutdown, I sort of fell into a lull on this project. Mostly I was trying to find a suitable material with which to build the board. My initial thought was to use glass mosaic tiles, similar to my coffee table (see projects). I really liked the idea of it, so I started looking for suitable tiles. This came to be a somewhat painful process, as I needed two sets of tiles that would work well with the walnut and maple,...
