Updates and a question

10-26-2010 04:32 AM by WoodsmanWoodworker | 3 comments »

First the bowl is on hold, mainly becuase i need to sharpen my chisels. The question… Is there a non-power sharpening tool that can sharpen my axes, chisels, and other such hand tools all in one tool? Also i made a simple ruler stop, a marking gauge, and a small grease pot. I’ll be posting them soon. Thanks

Lincoln Log Jig

10-26-2010 04:22 AM by mikeho | 6 comments »

I have had quite a few requests on how the lincoln log jig works, I will give it a shot at explaining it.First I rip the logs to 23/32 square and then take them to the router table and using a roundover bitround the edges. Next set the jig stops to the far left setting (right hole in jig) and cut the short and long logs to length. Next move the stops to the right setting (left hole in the jig) and cut the dados setting the 3/4 in dado blade to 1/8 above the sled. Next I take a few of ...

Stanley Plane Restoration - No. 5, Type 19 - BEFORE PICTURES

10-26-2010 03:41 AM by BradJacob | 3 comments »

Hey everyone. Last year I became interested in restoring planes. I created one project blog where I was restoring an early Type 9. Then, while working with on a wood project, the Walnut got me real sick. It took almost one month to get better, then spring came, summer, BBQ’s, band practice, life….. Here is it fall again and I’m back in the shop restoring my planes. I got two going right now. One is the old Type 9 and the other is a Type 19 that I picked up on eBay for som...

Scary sharp? Or barely sharp, but learning

10-26-2010 03:24 AM by Cato | 7 comments »

So had the day off today and thought I would take the time and try out the glass and wet/dry sharpening system that I got to attempt to sharpen my new and old planes. Set up and went with coarse 220 to 600 grit and then went to fine grits 1000,1200,1500. I have 2000 but did not try that yet. I should back up and say that I am going to have to read more about bench planes and their adjustments, as I have very little experience with them. I did manage to take them apart and put them b...

Hand tool workbench #3: Finishing the End Assemblies

10-26-2010 02:23 AM by brianl | 1 comment »

Before I put the end assemblies together I wanted to rig up the levelers. To level the bench I am using Hockey pucks with 1/2” bolts epoxied in them. I am then epoxying nuts into the legs of the assemblies. The Levelers: Testing the fit of a nut after I drilled a hole in the bottom of a leg using my drill press and a forstner bit. Once the levelers were done it was time to look into finishing up the ends. I went ahead and used a 3/8” forstner bit to drill holes...

Shop in the Sky #1: Building a New Shop - The Beginning.

10-26-2010 12:55 AM by EROCK | 3 comments »

Yes, it is a shop in the sky! I recently did some rearranging at work and was able to mostly free up our mezzanine. It was previously the home of all of our stair treads and risers, but now I have a 384sf area (16×24) to begin creating a shop. Much better than the half of a one car garage that I’m currently using :) I hope to update this series as I progress. The first task at hand is creating a wall on the open sides so I don’t fall to the abyss! I’ll update onc...

Rivergirl's Tool Box #1: The Beginning

10-25-2010 09:59 PM by helluvawreck | 30 comments »

Since rivergirl has built me a stool that is exactly the way that I wanted it to look I decided that I would build her a tool box as a way of reciprocating. I love the footstool and I think that she did a fine job on it and the wood and finish is just beautiful. It is as though rivergirl had read my mind about the way that I wanted my stool to look. rivergirl has told me that her stool has some flaws in it but I am sure that her tool box will also have some flaws in it so that is as it should...

Not exactly woodworking, but close enough. #13: More working on the dust collection setup, Not really happy yet...

10-25-2010 07:10 PM by dbhost | 0 comments »

So I am coming out of the 4” with the wyes, and making my turn to go to the machines, and I am finding that by the time I get through the wye, the 45, a short nipple, a blast gate, and another nipple (provides a better fit than attaching the hose straight to the blast gate…) I am 12-16” out from the wall. And there is a LOT of rotational force being applied to the pipe. For now, I am simply keeping it from rotating with pipe strap, but I don’t like this arrangement. It...

Things of wood I have seen #6: A few pieces from the Gdansk City Museum

10-25-2010 06:27 PM by mtkate | 4 comments »

It’s been awhile since I posted anything so I thought I would start with a few things I saw on my recent vacation. So much of Poland’s riches were destroyed during WWII, but they did manage to preserve a few gems and they have also invested quite a lot to rebuild and refurbish.. When you first walk into the museum you are greeted by this beautifully carved staircase (roped off so no one can climb). . A nice set of chairs and a table from the turn of the 19th century&...
