A progress update. I haven’t been in the shop for a few weeks due to illness. Now I’m ok and back at it. As you might remember, I had been struggling with the bindings. these are willow branches that are split, planed down and joined with a specially cut joint (no glue or fasteners). Well, I’m glad to report after working my way through about 10 of these and having failed 9 times, I finally learned it! I can now say that I can properly split branches and get 2 bands fr...

Arts & Crafts Book

04-05-2011 07:11 PM by toolguythiel | 21 comments »

I haven’t really been a poster to the site, though I’ve lurked quite a bit. I did want to share happy news that I finished a book (it was in question once or twice). It’s on building Arts & Crafts furniture using materials from the home center stores, and designed so that you really don’t need amazing woodworking skills to build them. I don’t know that these are pieces that I’d crow about to experienced woodworkers, but I think they turned out well, and...

I'm glad I was standing to the side!!!

04-05-2011 06:58 PM by Eagle1 | 8 comments »

I started finishing the bottom of a Oak bowl that was 10” round. When the tool decided to grab the wood and it proceeded to fly off of the lathe. I was sure glad to be standing to the side when it happened. The only thing that happened to me was a small slice on the fingure. The bowl on other hand suffered far more than I did. TOTAL WASTE!! But I’m glad it wasn’t me or my face. I was wearing my face shield at the time, but the with the weight of the bowl, I don’t k...

work bench #10: WWAD/HD Finished at last

04-05-2011 05:26 PM by gpastor | 2 comments »

WWADHDWoodwork’s Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity DisorderFinished at last There seems to be a point in every project that I become easily distracted or lose attention to getting the project finished. The project loses its charm or I get bored or think about the next project. I admitted I have WWAD/HD, yes it is true. I confess that I built a china cabinet for my wife that took 12 years to finish. I told people that I didn’t have the money to finish it or I didn’t have the tim...

Restoring Hand Planes.. My methods #13: Old woodworking square restored... A little break from the planes

04-05-2011 04:50 PM by Dan | 11 comments »

I have restored mostly just hand planes but I do sometimes find other old tools that I will restore. Somewhere along the road of searching for old planes I found this square and picked it up. Any old tool with Rosewood and brass is worth restoring IMO. I have no idea who made this as there are no markings other then some hand cut markings on the metal rule, maybe previous owners stamp idk? That really does not matter though, what matters is that another old tool has been rescued, given new...

Lost & Found: The Literal Splinter in the Sawdust Stack.

04-05-2011 04:11 PM by spunwood | 6 comments »

Well, I was getting ready to assemble a 16×20 frame, when I realized that the woman who ordered it needed to give input on the finish. While inspecting it, a piece just fell off with the sligtest tough from my finger. I didn’t think too much about it and threw it somewhere. After showing my wife, her first response was, what happened there? Well, I thought it made it look more rustic, but apparently too rustic because that was the first response of the woman I was selling...

Woodworking Business #6: Two Woodworking Business Blogs

04-05-2011 02:25 PM by billb | 1 comment »

I haven’t posted here in some time because of suffering through a bad flu that really put me down. In spite of the flu shot, which I take every year, this monster was overwhelming and it feels great to be nearly well again. I decided to catch up a little by sharing a couple of my woodworking business blogs where I was posting a great deal before the flu monster overtook me. One of them is called the Woodworking Business Blog and the latest posts are about several of the jobs I did...

Circle cutting #9: New cutting and sanding jigs ...

04-05-2011 11:32 AM by degoose | 17 comments »

With the big clean up and purchase of new equipment, I decided that the old ratty jigs had to go… and I have now built both a cutting jig and a sanding jig… Started with some Melamine… and then cut a dado in some Camphor for the sides… this will also help support the material… The lower part of the sides wraps around the table on the Bandsaw… and on the Disc Sander… using t-nuts and star knobs I attached cleats under the table to hold it in pla...
