My Roubo Build #2: Ah, Crap--Whinge Fest

05-10-2010 09:31 PM by naomi weiss | 3 comments »

From Roubo Slumber This is the current state of my Roubo. I’m pretty embarrassed about that, given that i have had the lumber for a few months now. I have encountered several glitches, besides my doctorate (when it gets in the way of woodworking, that’s exactly how i think of the damn thing). -First off, i miscalculated the stretchers. Since it’s 2 laminated pieces, one should be shorter than the other, and i ordered 2 of the same size (and shorter at that! the width betwe...

bandsaw #4: It's Resaw Recycling Time

08-28-2010 06:35 AM by twokidsnosleep | 3 comments »

I wanted a bandsaw to cut up wood into usable lumber.Now I am starting really small, but have had some initial success with the GO555P.So lets have a look.Pile of cedar fencing I had to replace due to rot at the bases I zipped them through the bandsaw and planed one side and one edge square, then resawed. Here is what I came up with I had better success with dust control and I wore a 3M N95 mask….I didn’t smell the cedar until I took off the mask. My home mad...

Saddle / Tack Caddy #4: Drawers & Drawer Case

04-10-2011 06:32 PM by RandyMorter | 3 comments »

I worked on the drawers and drawer case on 4/9/2011. The drawer case has to be the same width as the rest of the main frame boxes, which is 15”, and the same length. I’d originally planned to do 24” but after getting the drawer slide hardware I decided to add a bit of a gap between the backs of the drawers so added another 1/4”. The frame boxes will all be 24-1/4”. I chose some full extension 12” drawer slides (Shop Fox D3028, 100 lb. capacity side mo...

Alabama Tornado Logs

05-30-2011 04:05 PM by Built2Last | 3 comments »

A month or so before the tornado’s hit Alabama on April 27th I had built a log loader that I could put in my 20’ utility trailer. I never dreamed it would get so much use. After the storms hit I posted an ad on Craig’s List offering to remove logs from yards for no charge. It’s been a month now and it will take another month or so just finish the two places I’m working on now. The picture of the loaded trailer is of about 500 board feet of white oak ...

chisel review #1: Stanley #750 Chisels

07-11-2011 05:02 PM by iwoodu | 3 comments »

A few days ago I received my set of the new Stanley #750 series chisels and have to spread the word. Buy these chisels!! I’ll start with the fit and finish: The polishing on these chisels is supberb as is the “feel” of them. VERY well balanced. I read somewhere that one needs to hone these before use; I saw right off that there isn’t any secondary bevel on them but I had some paring to finish on the dovetails of a blanket chest I’m building for my daughter. These...

Old and new Projects in a New Workshop #5: Wall Mounted Tool Chest

10-08-2011 06:53 PM by garyjs | 3 comments »

I’ve got most of my hand tools – chisels, small saws, measuring tools, hammers and all that sort of clutter in a few metal tool chest that take up precious room on and around my work areas, and I am fed up with that. I am also somewhat deficient in fine hardwoods. Deficient to the point that I don’t even have any off-cuts of hardwood to toss into making a nice tool chest. In fact, I could be brutally honest and say that to date no hardwood lumber has seen fit to enter my wor...

Arts and Crafts 6 Drawer Dresser #7: Clamshell Biscuits, And Building a Flat Top Panel

01-07-2013 06:39 PM by pintodeluxe | 3 comments »

Here is the plan from my design. It incorporates some Stickley design elements. --The dresser carcases are assembled, including the small divider that separates the top two drawers.--The small dividers are attached with biscuits. To cut the slots, I opened the top two web frames like a clamshell. The web frames were aligned, and clamped together. Then I added an Emerson straightedge clamp, positioned to center the small divider on the web frame. --The ruler on the Emerson clamp helps cen...

Stanley No 18 Resto

04-12-2014 07:25 PM by ajthomas5009 | 3 comments »

Heres a Stanley No 18 Block plane I picked up. I decided to do a full resto. I know it’s not necessary but I like my tools clean and shiney. The first 2 picks are before shots. The last 2 are after paint dried. I’ll post some more and a complete write up once it’s reassembled and operational.

My First Rocking Horse #2: Just a little horse

03-12-2007 04:51 PM by Dan Lyke | 3 comments »

“We were somewhere around Lagunitas, on the edge of the redwoods, when the screws began to take hold…” (with props to Dennis Mitchell who suggested that my previous rocking horse entry was headed into “Fear and Loathing” territory…) After evaluating and deciding to postpone assorted good suggestions involving dump valves and such, I finally got around to glue-up on the rocking horse, and slapped a first layer of finish on it yesterday. After all...
