Sharpening methods #1: What is your favorite iron and sharpening method AND why?

1153 days ago by mafe | 157 comments »

What is your favorite iron and sharpening method AND why? After we had a few talks on Berthas ‘what is your favorite hand plane’ blog I decided we needed to go to next step. So please let us hear your thoughts show us pictures videos why you like your blade or sharpening method and proofs if they exist why it should be better than other. I am lazy by nature, and handicapped by life, so for me to stand and move the blade forward and backward on a stone or paper is a pa...

1915 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 150 comments »

In case you weren’t aware, I was recently invited to join in a very fun challenge over at Better Home's and Gardens and I was more than happy to accept.

So throughout the month of April, we’ll be blogging about the entire process over at BHG.com. And of course yo...

Done: Simple Headboard Build

905 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 129 comments »

Walnut Headboard Build A quick project that is needed but is also a nice mental diversion from the daily grind.

Using this for the rails, top and bottom. I’ll joint one edge, work up the face, then rip the piece before deciding on what to do with any design element. ...

Split Roubo Workbench #1: I have put this off for far too long

862 days ago by lysdexic | 127 comments »

Ok, so let me get this blog started before I get so far behind that I put it off – forever. It is undisputed that the most important tool in the woodworking shop is a proper workbench. I don’t have one. I will not rehash the nuances of workbench design but after reading Schwarz’s and Scott Landis’s books, I had my heart set on a Roubo bench. I am not alone as several LJ’s have posted wonderful roubo benches. At first I wanted to build this… I r...
