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...

Crafts Shows R Us #19: Online Sales in 2010

04-05-2011 05:01 AM by closetguy | 24 comments »

This is a continuation of my discussion on 2010 craft sales. The previous blog was getting a little lengthy and since I am switching gears, it seemed to be a good place to split the narrative. If you didn’t read the last one, you should after you finish this one (or preferably before). Just like the shows, my online sales doubled from 2009. A better economy made this possible. But I also had sales coming from sources that I have never experienced until last year. My only online store ...

Well…I just posted a project for the first time in a long time and realized last week I hit 4 years at LJ’s… I dont think I can add too much too my 3rd year anniversary except to say that I am still proud to be a member of this site…I still check in often although until the past week the last few months have been pretty sporadic…. This biggest change since last year—-I think I continue to learn a lot in the shop and from people here…and I think ...

Shoe Bench #5: Varnish time

04-05-2011 02:42 AM by Jeremy Greiner | 0 comments »

Finishing the shoe bench took considerably longer than I had planned on. After a week of finishing,and a few lost days from tool assembly I decided that I would like to set up some sort of finishing area not in my garage so I can work on other items or just tinker around while the finish cures on my project. I did a quick setup on my enclosed patio area so now I can apply varnish on my projects and still tinker about in my garage. The picture isn’t very good because of the sunlig...

Building my shop-- part 2

04-05-2011 02:36 AM by RKW | 6 comments »

Finally, i broke some ground.(Literally) I have roughly two months before im in operation, but actually seeing the concrete hit the ground is exciting. I dont have much to say other than YEEEHHHH!!! There are a total of 8 weld plates that were installed in 24”x24” peers. I guess this pretty standard, but it is more substantial than i had imagined. It is definately going to be solid. I ran two electric boxes and conduit in strategic locations. Hopefully the layout I ...
