Hey Everybody! Boards & Beams is opening up another location in Fairfield, NJ. We will still be here in Towaco, but will be doing our fabricating in Fairfield. We have made much progress since we opened our doors six months ago. Thanks for all the support. http://www.woodboardsandbeams.com(973)299-6100
Yo whats up everybody in this video I get all the shelves to the right width by planning them down. I had to make sure that the designs on the tops of the sides were straight because they were rough cut at the scroll saw. It tookbe a while to sand all the parts but I finished them off with 220 grit. www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com
I wanted to try my hand at making hand planes, the shop needs several. Struggling with the design concept, I bought a book “Making Traditional Wooden Planes” by John M. Whelan, it was no novel but a good source of wood plane design info. It’s worth reading if you’re researching wooden hand planes. Trying to keep the first plane simple I decided on making a small shoulder plane in the Krenov style. Looking around my shop I found an old 1” chisel. It is harder than heck, so I took it a...
During my years in making things with wood I’ve been concerned with sanding. Almost anything we make from wood needs sanding to remove tools marks, to bring the wood to a high polish before applying finish, to make a carving smooth.I’m fortunate to have a CarveWright machine and I really like the work it does. I also have a Legacy Ornamental Mill and it does things for me I can’t do with hand tools.Oh yes, there are some highly skilled woodworkers who can make a tapered, spi...
Hello to everyone!I purchased a Dewalt dw618 router (2 1/4hp, both fixed and plunge bases) about three months ago….I have tried repeatedly to use them but to no great accomplishment.I simply cannot get the end result that I am looking for. I have used the new incra positioning jig and am unable to get a dovetail that is actually a dovetail!I have tried to do a miter joint and all that I end up with are splinters and tearouts.For the most part I am attempting this using red oak.The bits...
Well..I’ve gone off the deep end..again.. But most people would’nt think a thing of it.. I was on craigslist..again.. And came across a posting for a jointer and misc woodworking tools and machines..now most of you who have searched thru Craigslist know that there’s a ton of crap out there..lol.. Well on this particular post he was showing 2 Rockwell jointers.. An 8” and a 6” commercial.. Nice ones too.. So when I read that they had other machines.I inquired if t...
I glued up the blanks for the second reel this morning, hoping they would be ready to cut out this afternoon. They were. I used the first set as a router template, which worked pretty well. I also pushed everything through the planer to thin it down. The spool parts were a bit hefty for the frame. Then I made what are called Brooxes Hangups. They use friction to keep the camera rig attached to the kite string. Keep in mind this is 100 pound test, so it’s not exactly your stand...
This is the underside of a folding work table, made from extra plywood, scraps, and recycled lumber. All this extra lumber came from my noob mistakes, so I really want to make good use of them. It’s fastened to the wall by concrete nails, and held by a piano hinge (those things are surprisingly strong!). It has to be sturdy, rigid, but also light, so I used a stressed-skin design (or torsion box). The bottom skin wasn’t attached yet in this photo. No fancy joinery, just glue an...
I was going to cover over this window, I decided some extra natural light would be nice. Thanks again to Barb on taking most of these pictures.
