Yet another workbench #1: My belt and suspenders design.

08-27-2015 10:35 PM by JonasB | 3 comments »

So I decided I needed to finally build a real woodworking bench for my new workspace. I got all the books by Chris Schwarz, checked all the back issues of woodworking mags and browsed the internet in preparation. Then the first thing I did was break one of Chris Schwarz rules. I decided to design my own rather then duplicate a historical bench. I think I had valid reasons. My workspace is small. I could not fit a long bench. A short bench means planning forces have a bigger impact, so I d...

Knife Making & Repair #1: Replacing a kitchen knife handle

12-31-2008 04:23 AM by johngoes | 3 comments »

I decided that it’s time to tackle the knife handle I’ve procrastinated on. We have had a nice kitchen knife for years that really felt good in the hand, held its edge, and sliced very well.

One surprise (see picture) was that the knife tang was a lot smaller that I anticipated. The blade top align...

A question for the turners!!!

03-03-2011 04:31 AM by armylogger | 3 comments »

Ok, so I have been wanting to get a lathe for some time now. I got $250 worth of gift cards from woodcraft at christmas and have been saving them for this special occasion. I have looked around and finally decided on a Rikon. Now my biggest problem is whether I should get a variable speed or not. I want to turn all kinds of items. Small bowls, pens, lidded boxes, pepper mills, and many other items. I have talked to a few people who have told me that the variable speed lathes do not have enoug...
