Workbench Build #5: Square or round? Round or Square? Doggone it, somebody throw me a bone!!!

11 hours ago by Mark Kornell | 3 comments »

I knew I’d come to this point – and I don’t mean throwing out pithy blog entry titles. I’d have to decide what kind of dog holes I want. Jameel Abraham (Mr. Benchcrafted) feels pretty strongly that square dogs are the only way. Chris Schwarz used to be agnostic, but now has a strong preference for round dogs. Lon Schleining suggests using both. Scott Landis doesn’t really state a preference in his book, but most of the benches he shows have square holes. ...

Furniture Making Tutorials #5: Installing False Drawer Fronts

12 hours ago by BigRedKnothead | 5 comments »

False drawer fronts are very common in furniture, but getting the fronts installed precisely can be frustrating. Here’s a little trick or technique for this task. -Here’s the big ol’ drawer front I’m installing on my joinery bench. The front has already been edge planed and sized to fit. I like to use a steel rule as a spacer, it aids me in obtaining a uniform reveal around the perimeter of the drawer front. -The first step is pre-drilling your screws through the front...

Deep Thoughts - Reader Beware #12: Total Fluff

14 hours ago by Sandra | 10 comments »

I’m notorious for over-thinking, overanalyzing and basically spending too much energy navel-gazing. This blog is intended to get some of it out of my head. I’ll be glib, sarcastic and flippant in my other posts. Who knows how this one will turn out. It may be a train wreck, so reader beware! If navel-gazing doesn’t hold any appeal or distraction for you, move on. If you’re allergic to estrogen, move away quickly. My own personal rules are to not to spend more than 30 minutes on any one pos...

The old time woodshop journals #48: Tool pickin', cleaning and using!

20 hours ago by jjw5858 | 5 comments »

For the many of you out there that are always on the hunt for great hand tool buys at a Flea Market this one is for you. I would say this is also for the beginner or curious onlookers that may want to start using hand tools but may feel overwhelmed by the catalog prices of some of the leading brands that are making outstanding top quality tools. I know for myself at times I have to take a deep breath after drooling over a Lie Nielson catalog and seeing a hand plane upwards of 200-300 plus ...

I like this site

20 hours ago by AtlasRook | 7 comments »

Wow, I never expected what I post here to have so many responses. I like that. It seems to me that a wider range of skill sets are represented here, which is nice for advice purposes. The projects are seem wonderful, and have given me some good ideas. I hope to be able to make beautiful projects like I see here someday in the future. So far, time seems to be a limiting factor. My life seems to revolve around my 1.5 yr old son (which I don’t mind because I kinda like him a lot). ...

Carving a small spoon

23 hours ago by filiplaw | 1 comment »

I had a small piece of pine laying around and a free afternoon so I decided to carve another spoon. I wanted it to be small (somewhere between a teaspoon and a tablespoon) and simple in shape. I traced around some plastic spoon I had in my kitchen and altered the handle shape a bit. With the outline ready I went to work. I made some stop-cuts with a saw and bashed out the waste with a 20mm chisel. I also did the same to the underside since the stock was way too thick for a spoon.I find ...
