Generations of Hammers

11-02-2010 09:31 PM by swirt | 11 comments »

I am fortunate to have a hammer that belonged to my Grandfather and one that belonged to my Dad. Hammers generally are pretty generic items but there are a couple of aspects about each that I like and are not seen in todays’ assortment of hammers available at the hardware stores. My Grandfather’s hammer is one that fortunately I had long before Chris Schwarz dubbed it as his “favorite hammer” and made its price jump up. It is an old Belknap Blue Grass rip hammer a...

Wolf's Tooth Banding...a Two for One

11-02-2010 09:03 PM by Bob Simmons | 3 comments »

“It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.” .....Muhammad Ali, Heavyweight boxing champ…1942 - One of the benefits of creating “Wolf’s Tooth” wood inlay bandings is that you actually get two bandings for the effort of one. What do I mean by this? When the initial cuts from the laminated stock are made on the table saw using the dedicated miter saw we flip th...

Roubo-Moxon Bench Build #8: I Don't Need No Stinkin' Lathe

11-02-2010 04:24 PM by Eric | 6 comments »

So I followed Gye's advice and followed Kari's advice and whipped out my block plane to fashion me some pegs for drawboring the tenons on my stretchers. I originally was considering making a dowel plate, but Kari in her post suggests that this works best for short dowels. All of mine are at least 6” long. So anyway, the block plane was a bit slow at first, on the corners, but it quickly picked up. I just started at one end until it fit in my test hole and wherever it hung up, I k...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #152: Some Decisions are Difficult to Make

11-02-2010 11:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I am at last seeing the finish line in painting the skating pond scene. As of today, I am on the last of the figure and then I only need to do the trees and lamp posts and I will be able to unveil the entire scene. I have thoroughly enjoyed recreating it, but there have been many distractions along the way and I am feeling that I can’t wait to get to the many other things that await my attention. The distractions haven’t been all bad, but some are certainly more productive tha...

Building My Work Shop #6: Clamp Rack Sketch Up Design

11-02-2010 07:25 AM by Crushgroovin | 4 comments »

Got a very late start to the day so ended up taking up most of my time with the Clamp Rack Sketch Up Design. Tomorrow I will brave the rain to go out to the lumber pile outside and see how many 1×6’s I have out there. The design is basically to hold everything I might need for assembly: Clamps of all sorts, Glue, Tape, fasteners. I designed for use with Fir 1×3 & Birch Plywood, however any 1×3 and 3/4” & 5/8” sheet stock will work. I will be using M...
