A pen with a lot of memories for a friends mother.

09-04-2012 02:16 PM by Schimmel | 3 comments »

This is a project I did for a Friend of mine who had this watch. The watch was his mother’s fathers watch that he had received in the 50’s (he has since past). She had given the watch to her son (my friend) because it did not work. We decided since the watch was in the original box with war bond advertising and everything to make this watch part pen for her. It was cool how the box although made originally for the watch was a perfect pen box. I just made an new insert to hold i...

Miter saw station/router table...on wheels!

11-28-2012 11:56 PM by RaggedKerf | 3 comments »

For a while now (since June when my wife and I ripped out the powder bath vanity and put in the garage) I’ve been kicking around the idea of making a miter saw station. I had planned to put it on wheels to allow me to move it around the garage and out of the way when not in use. Then my father-in-law gave me his router table….and the idea got a little more complicated and took a nagging position at the back of my mind for months. I kept coming back to it and kept coming up em...

Thoughts on the future of wooden housing #1: The first

04-11-2013 01:11 PM by ggardner | 3 comments »

For a very long time our ancestors have built their own homes using mainly wood. For some strange reason, however, in most places of the earth this trend has receded – nowadays we prefer to use the help of professionals to build our homes for us rather than do it ourselves. The art of self-build is still valued in many places, but that seems to be an exception, not mainstream. So, have we simply become incapable of building our homes ourselves? I have a colleague at,...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1284: Bunnies and Flowers and Beads . . . Oh My!

04-04-2014 11:31 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I don’t know why, but I think the long, cold winter has me longing for spring. Today is the first day of the week that the sun is shining, and there is not a cloud in the sky. While there is still a touch of frost on the grass, I find myself being grateful for each day that passes with no snow. It may seem funny to be thinking like that in April, but for most people this year has been particularly brutal. I personally love the snow, but I think that even I have had my fill and am ...

Traditional Woodworking Tours #10: Middleton Plantation Workshop Tour

08-14-2014 01:51 PM by WoodAndShop | 3 comments »

In my above video I share my recent tour of the traditional carpenter & cooper workshop in at Middleton Place, a former plantation near Charleston, South Carolina. Sorry, the video is a little shaky. But fortunately my photos below are not! Ahhh, what could be better than a traditional workshop in a heavenly location like this? (pssst…ignore the aligators) Nobody was manning their workshop station while I poked my head into this workshop, so I just gave myself a tour. I ...

Cute Little Shaver, Ain't It?

01-30-2015 03:25 PM by handsawgeek | 3 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 ...

Small workbench based on shipbuilt's Short Block V8 (Workbench Challange) #1: Concept and leg assembly

02-06-2015 05:57 AM by brianb6603 | 3 comments »

ConceptI have been needing a proper workbench for a while. The top of my table saw and fold up extension have been the only spot to use. I would love to have a large proper workbench but my shop is just too small for a full size bench. I have been looking at benches in Lumberjocks and marking some for reference. shipwright had come up with some excellent ideas. His concept for the Short Block V8 is a low cost way for a beginner to get a strong, stable small workbench using tools that many b...
