Making an Airgun Stock

10-23-2012 04:35 AM by Brett | 2 comments »

I am starting to make a stock and pump arm for a Crosman 1377 pellet gun. I thought that I would keep record of making it here on this blog. It will hopefully serve as a reference for myself and anyone else that may be interested in attempting to make one for themselves. I am making this particular one out of sapele, an african hardwood similar to mahogany in appearance and working properties. I think sapele is richer in brown with a hint of red in color and it has some really spectacul...

Hi all, hope you are all happy woodworkers. The weather is getting colder, and the leaves are falling. My stomach is aching for some Turkey…. Today’s post is of a Chair leg I was hired to repair for a client..This was a pretty basic repair. The designer of this chair was well, #$%$%. The chair leg is made up of two pieces. The portion of the leg that broke was a miter glue joint. No dowels, just face glued. Well the pressure of the person on the chair creates a wedging affect on the joint, an...

When safety isn't safe, and keeping up the pressure!

06-03-2014 04:02 AM by dbhost | 2 comments »

I didn’t have a bunch of shop time this weekend, but I managed to whip up a retainer of sorts for my respirators that I mounted to the door. Even though it was plainly obvious to me, it was not to other members of the household… I also managed to hunt down the one nagging leak left in the compressed air system (at least with only the 29 gallon job connected). It turns out perfectly good LOOKING threads don’t always want to seal no matter what you try… I am now wo...

Tools tools, I love toys, I mean tools #4: Why I bought two Groz hand planes as my starter planes

08-10-2014 04:00 AM by paxorion | 2 comments »

I thought it would help to take a step back on my hand plane tuning blog posts and provide a little background on my hand plane journey of the past few days. ContextAsk anyone for recommendations on a first hand plane, and you’re bound to get a large number folks recommending looking for a pre-WWII hand plane. Personally I’ve never really thought of that to be a good answer (for me) because I think that there is an implied “cost” (time, effort, and money) involved w...

Business expanding #1: Getting back into the swing of things.

02-05-2015 01:41 PM by nate22 | 2 comments »

Well it’s been a little while since I have done a whole lot on here. That’s because because of a few reasons. I also back off of my business to. I didn’t really do anything with it from. December of 2013 to July of last year. Then that’s when I started do things with it again. In July I started to think of a different name , also making a new product (which I will talk more about those things in my next blog) and just get back into it again. In the last six months...
