Wood from the Past

03-16-2012 05:39 PM by Chuck | 4 comments »

My Grandma has been cleaning out her garage and the garage that was Grandpa’s shop and has found several boards for me. I went by last night and picked them up, the biggest of the boards was this Cedar 2×10 that is 8’ long. I wire brushed a lot of the dirt off the board but then I needed to plane the rough sawn board to get a look at the wood. Here is the stack of the other boards, it’s a mix of walnut and cedar with maybe a few other types of wood in there. I...

For those of you that haven’t been following – I recently decided that I would work through an entire woodworking book full of projects – The New Yankee Workshop by Norm Abram – to build my current skills, learn a few new techniques, and correct some of my bad habits I’ve picked up by being self-taught. The first project in the book was a medicine cabinet. You can read about it here The second project in the book is one I’ve been pretty excited about...

Tumbling blocks variation

Have you ever tried a square that becomes a diamond when a shadow is cast on the corner side… an illusion by discovery. I was recycling small pieces that are kept for future use. Here is what I was able to make… First I made those irregular ones into a square using only a miter box. Cutting the sides equally gives a better way of repetetive sawing making a square. Without changing the position of the stopper, as long as there is enough area and one portion is straight the...

New Mobile Work Station #2: Frame Assembly

11-21-2013 05:52 AM by MT_Stringer | 4 comments »

I have the basic frame assembled. It is smaller than I expected but it should serve as a jig storage/ assembly/work cart just fine. And it will fit into my work area s I had hoped it would. Here is my progress for today. One of the sides glued, screwed and tattood! :-) The joints are half lap. I forgot to mention the legs and sides are 2×4 from the big box store. The end pieces are hard maple I had on hand. The frame is complete. I will let the glue cure over night. It turned ou...

08-27-2010 04:42 AM by Ecocandle | 4 comments »

Hello All, Tonight I had to give a ‘Shout Out’ to a great blog, by Shannon, The Renaissance Woodworker. He created his video podcast just for me today, and it was really helpful. His explanation of how one uses hand planes is perhaps the best I have seen. Brian

What is a kerf maker? Is it a form of rabbit plane for narrow rabbits? Feel silly asking but I find examples of kerf makers but everyone assumes we know its use.

I was researching some tips for things I needed to work on with my Shop Smith Unit. In doing so I came across a list of toxic woods and afflictions from those woods. I want to share with anyone and everyone here as I see many new comers into the wood shop and hobbyists all over the world who use woods that may be dangerous to there health. This is from a Shop Smith 2008 video class, Please forgive me if I am violating any copyright laws I just want to share the information

Fun project

03-16-2012 06:56 PM by RussellAP | 4 comments »

Women go nuts over these things. You can put them indoor or outdoor in a sheltered spot, they’d look good in a garden spot where some plants can grow up around them too. I think I’ll just get some spray varnish to seal them. I’m advertising them on FB with my friends and so is my wife. We’ll see how it does.
