The stainless-steel CT-17 helicopter block plane, video

04-14-2011 08:44 AM by bubinga | 6 comments »

Inspired by the lightweight, high-strength components found in helicopters, Bridge City Tool Works has made a work of art that planes wood. The stainless-steel CT-17 block plane from Bridge City Tool Works is perhaps the best-looking plane I’ve ever seen. And the beauty is more than skin deep because the new plane doubles as both a conventional and low-angle model. Lock up your credit cards . $860.00 —E J

Update for the Grizzly planer

04-14-2011 08:28 AM by Scott H. | 3 comments »

OK, I purchased the Grizzly G0453 15” planer with the spiral head cutter. It works like a dream! There is some snipe on the front of the board “at times” which is to be expected. I just make sure that the board is a little longer than what I need for the finished board. The snipe isn’t that deep. Most of the time it takes only a little sanding and it disappears. It was packed very well for shipping. It was actually in a wood crate. After I unpacked it, I used one ro...

Timberking 1220 Sawmill #2: Black Walnut log, sawn into 4/4 lumber with a live edge.

04-14-2011 05:48 AM by HalDougherty | 11 comments »

I picked up a great looking walnut log today. The widest place was over 29” at the crotch and it just fit my TimberKing 1220 sawmill. I had to cut the limbs slightly shorter so I could slice it into flitches. I don’t have a bobcat or a backhoe to load logs… so, I had to wrestle them on the trailer. One item I did get to help load logs was a 3000 lb electric winch. Only one problem with it today. The battery was discharged! I had to use my back up plan. A manual w...

My Long Wait for a Workshop #3: Lessons Learned - Observations of a Newbie

04-13-2011 08:58 PM by JWags | 16 comments »

Well, I’ve been wanting a workshop for 20 years. I finally was able to begin creating one a few weeks ago. There has been ups and downs, joys and sorrows, silly and stupid mistakes made, and patience learned and experienced gained. (I still have 10 fingers….just less hair) Most of you have been doing this for a long time. Think back to your early days – and some of the goofs you made. Although I’ve been reading blogs, magazines, and other “how to’s&...

A case for short hair

04-13-2011 08:19 PM by ScienceNerd | 5 comments »

Hi, all - Though the title of this posting is (mildly) humorous, the content is, unfortunately, not. I work in the chemistry dept at Yale, and overnight we had an undergraduate researcher die in a machine shop accident. Reports so far today suggest that her hair got caught in a lathe, which is why I am posting here. I see enough beautiful lathe-produced work on this site that I’d hate to have anyone else suffer the same consequences. So, ladies (and you lock-laden gents), please ...
