Sometimes you just have to do things. IThis is one of the first planes I bought on ebay, several years ago. When it arrived the nose was broken off. The brake looked fresh, I am thinking our “Fine Postal System” was careful when handling this parcel. (uh huh) Any way, I ended up with a broken stanley 78. I NEVER throw things away, it sat around a few weeks, I bought another one, realized they were not real comfortable when planeing things, no where to rest my hand at t...

One of the challenges I faced on my recent bed project was getting my drawer fronts to all line up the same. I left very little room for error, and, since I had two rows of three drawers on each side, I really wanted all the drawer fronts to be “covered and aligned.” The solution: a good jig. Below are four pictures of two different jigs I used. The first three are for aligning the drawer front to the drawer box. I basically built two “U”s. The first U was the ...
Daniel’s missing his friends and wants to head home, so while I’m trying to get him to slow down and take his time on the finishing, I’m aware that he wants to ditch us and head for the hills. The finish is still a bit soft, and if it were up to me we’d spend another week adding a layer, sanding it off, adding a layer, and so forth, but we’re not there. So last night we installed the frets, the nuts for the bridge hardware, and the tuning machines. Ho...
While I sat waiting for the glue to dry on my latest piece of furniture I decided to turn a simple mallet out of some scrap Sugar Gum. Wood turning is a great form of woodworking, I just wish I was better at it.

I’m about to pull the trigger on my order from Klockit.com. I had a few questions about what to order, so I pinged their tech support. They don’t mention what size winding key to get. I’m assuming that it’s an eight-day movement, so that if you wind it every week, it’ll keep running. I grew up with clocks (i.e. grandfather, cuckoo, etc.), so I didn’t want a set that chimed. I think the pendulum length and swing will fit nicely with the design I’v...
This video tutorial focuses on mortising the base. Eventually, this section will be reversed and the mortise being made will provide a dovetail-like opening that the chuck’s jaws will grip.There are 3 sections of the segmented vase. Ultimately, all 3 sections will be glued together to form a vase that will be 9” x 12” when finished. There are 18 rings and 24 segments in each ring. (432 total segments). visit…www.TheApprenticeandTheJourneyman.com Learn more, Ex...
Well today I was in building B which has most of the machinery mfgs. A lot of them was large industrial type machines that had no chance of fitting in my shop, not to mention over loading the power grid in my area. There was some that we all know like, Delta, PorterCable, Dewalt,Saw Stop, Kreg, and Rikon. I could go on and on but I won’t. One thing did catch my eye and that was the new Sawstop 1 3/4 Hp Cabinet saw, sence I’m limited to 110 Volt in my shop I figured that it would b...
Ah figured out how to start a series of blog. So a little progress today on my glue ups for the table top. Scraped and sanded the glue lines from yesterday and then ran all the boards for a final pass thru the planer while they would still fit. Then glued up one of the last three sections, so just two to go. Here are the pics of the glue up and the other two sections that will get glued tomorrow, and then just one more to go. Only going to do one per day now that the top is getting much...
