Bench Utilities #2: Bench Hook

12-02-2010 04:13 AM by mpmitche | 1 comment »

The first helper on my list has been a bench hook. Here is a pic of my old cross cutting helper. Yes, that is a nail set dropped into a hole and it is a pretty sad way to try to hold work.

I’ve been struggling with fitting brass hinges into softer woods that I seem to work with today against my better judgment.By the time I have the mortise cut for the hinge I find that usually a portion of the mortise has either fallen away, been crushed by my chisels, or a combination of both leaving an unsightly gash into which I have to place my hinge.I’ve been looking at this jig as outlined in ShopNotes volume #12 No. 74.From hinge jigFrom hinge jig From hinge jigFrom hinge j...

Shop song of the day #14: 12/1/10

Widespread Panic, Holden Oversoul. One of my favorite Panic tunes off all time. Not the best quality so if you have external speakers, now would be a great time to plug em in. Mikey brings some heat a little after the 3 min mark.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #181: Poinsettia Candle Tray

12-01-2010 02:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Sometimes I have to laugh at myself when I look back and read the goals I set out for myself in any given day. I think if I ever actually achieved all I set out to do, I would be labeled “superwoman”. I don’t think it is necessarily bad to set our goals high.
