I met Rob Cosman! My first trip to Woodcraft.

10-14-2015 12:11 AM by Chris McDowell | 2 comments »

I went to Woodcraft for the first time ever in order to get some tools so that I can start doing some turning on my new lathe. Couldn’t have picked a better day to go. The entire store was 15% off. Also, when I walked in I saw a group of people standing around a workbench near the entrance. I recognized the dude they were all talking to and realized that it was Rob Cosman, the great hand-tool woodworker from Canada. He’s on YouTube as well. Check him out. Watch the video her...

Concept Ideas using SketchUp #5: Scroll Saw

10-13-2015 07:49 PM by George_SA | 1 comment »

This is on my woodworking project bucket list. Every time I see the prices of these machines I just turn away and decide scroll sawing is not for me. Thanks to YouTube I have seen that it is possible to make an affordable homemade alternative. This drawing is a combination of several different homemade scroll saws on the internet. It is designed to have a 600mm (Aprox 24 inch) throat depth and a tiltable table as well as a toe to hold the work down. The arm that supports the toe could also be...

Stanley 45 box #7: Flushing off the Reinforcements

10-13-2015 01:42 PM by Mitch Peacock | 0 comments »

Last time I installed reinforcements to the plain mitred corners of my Stanley no.45 Box, and left them to cure. Now came the time to flush of the excess material, and knock the sharp edges off. The initial work was done with my small pull saw, after which I turned to a sharp chisel, and then smooth plane and card scraper. Supporting the box over boards clamped to the bench top works really well, and this method is often used when making drawers. Once the surfaces were satisfacto...

Plugging large holes

10-13-2015 01:18 PM by Nels | 3 comments »

I have used material that had bolts and washers in it. The holes are 1-3/4” and I need to plug these holes. Cutting the exsisting holes with a router or drill bit is easy. How can I cut a plug accurately that is 2-1/2” in diameter and 1/2” thick? I can make the hole smaller (maybe 2-3/8” or 2-1/4”), but I want to cut out the defects around where the bolt holes are. The material is oak and there are about 200 holes to plug. I guess I could turn the plugs,...

Shop stuff #6: A quick re-furb on a Record No 078

10-13-2015 01:16 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

I bought this one at the local Ciderfest a couple of weeks ago and decided I would do a bit of work to it in order to see what I had. I will likely do some further tuning to it as I do with all my things as I go along, but this was just to get it working. I guess everyone who does woodworking videos on You Tube is obliged to do some sort of sharpening video and I am counting this as mine. I suppose I could have split this up into shorter segments, but wanted to keep the continuity. Makin...

Stanley 45 box #6: Reinforcing Mitred Corners

10-13-2015 12:58 PM by Mitch Peacock | 0 comments »

Plain mitred corners are inherently weak, due to the propensity of end grain to end grain in the joint. For a box like this, I feel it is crucial to add some reinforcement. Now you may ask, why then did I choose to plain mitre the corners? Wouldn’t I have been better using box joints, or dovetails, or adding a spline to the mitre? My answer is simply, I wanted a mitred box that was relatively easy for anyone to copy, and which had subtle decorative features. My methods for reinfo...
