Easy Shop Table - Planer Table #1: Starting the project...

03-26-2011 11:07 PM by Lockwatcher | 3 comments »

NOTE: I have just edited this blog to make some corrections in the original text! I have begun building my last (?) Easy Shop Table. Based on a similar design used in my Assembly Table from Wood Magazine (March 2010). Once again, this table (like my others) is built from standard grade construction lumber, redimensioned for the project (from the big box store). So far, I’ve purchased 2 2×10”s x 10’ for the frame of the project. The lumber cost for the frame assem...

Watco not drying!

03-27-2011 04:15 AM by Brendan | 4 comments »

I have been thinking about how this posting may sound to a lot of you. “Wow, this guy is an idiot, or he doesn’t have a clue on what he is doing.” These thoughts may be true and in some cases diffidently true. But…. but, I have been a custom woodworker for 16 years now. In all these years I have been working in high end custom shops from the east coast to the west coast. Not making boxes (uppers and lowers) I have had the fortune to have worked with a lot of amaz...

In Search Of... Stanley Chisels

03-26-2011 09:16 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 6 comments »

What happens when an international company decides to return the premium hand tool market and a small-town craftsman supports the move? Well, not much. How about some background? On the 5th of February I walked in to my area’s family-owned and operated (since 1915!) hardware store and asked if they carried Stanley products. The answer was, “of course!” and I had figured as much because the yellow rectangle was everywhere on the shelves. “I’m interested in a ne...

A small tool gloat.

03-26-2011 08:04 PM by CoolDavion | 2 comments »

Today I stopped into an antique store that I’ve driven by several times. I looked around they had some tools (plane a couple levels and a couple squares), but nothing that matched the cash on hand or was worth the price. I was almost out the door, but took a last look in a display case. In it I spotted this little gem A Stanley, stamped H101P on the side. So a happy day for me

Hello all. I’m about to make a small box featuring curves. Something I don’t do often. Curves that is, not boxes and it occurred to me to feature the jig I will be using to build it with. Yes I know I’ve recently posted a couple of circle jigs for the bandsaw but there is more than one way to skin a cat and its always useful to have an alternative to call on. This is it Its just a sheet of 6mm Perspex with three slots cut in it and a 6mm pin inserted in a tapped ho...

SPIRAL DESIGN #6: Hexaspiral - The triangulation way

03-26-2011 03:25 PM by BertFlores58 | 11 comments »

I decided to make a realistic work in converting scalenes to create a spiral design from a hexagon origin. At first I was thinking of the difficulty I will be facing in constructing it. Take a good look of following designs: THE DIFFERENT COLOR AND BIGGER TRIANGULATIONS. THE BLACKHOLE—The black and white in smaller strips In a way, it looks easy to construct however, creating the acute angle of less 5 deg is difficult. Here are the steps I made: STEP 1 – Make a hexa...
