Here’s an interesting article of how this woman wanted to create the largest wooden ship of the century:Kea Tawana: Woman Shipwright And here is a more recent article about her.
Well after a long wait I finally finished shaping the stems for the canoe. It was a lot of work but very pleasing. I had never made anything like this with a spokeshave and plane and after a little getting used to it I got comfortable with it and it went pretty smoothly. Being a cheap wad I picked up a spokeshave at Harbor Freight for $7. I took it home and worked the face up a little on some sand paper and honed the blade and it worked great. I finally settled into doing the initial s...
I recently received My Wife’s late Father’s Craftsman 10in 2.5HP 13Amps 5000RPM Table Saw 137.218780. It is more than a few years old but is in really great shape. The blade that it had on it didn’t look in to bad of shape. I did pickup a new blade to use instead and keep the other as backup for now. I bought a Freud Industrial 10in Heavy Duty Multi-Purpose 60T 1/8in Kerf Saw Blade LU82M010. The thing cuts wood like it is warm butter. I am very happy to have come acros...

OK! I consider myself relatively computer literate! Or did! Darned if I can add a picture. I can copy the link from photobucket . . .but no picture follows. Then again we had to get up early today and I’m pooped. Anyone else have this issue and solved it?
Can’t believe it’s been that long. I remember stumbling onto this site and thinking, “Hmmm, looks interesting.” It has been, to say the least. One of the first comments I got was that it could be habit forming and it is. Lots of neat people with very creative projects. I’ve learned a lot and hope I’ve helped some too. A special tip o’ the hat to Patron, Jayjay, Karson, Wood Soldier and A1Jim as well as so many others. It’s been fun and no...
I have been wanting to get this project completed for some time and now its on its way to being done. I built this about a year ago and it had served well but it was difficult to set up without a fence until now. I picked up the PinnAcle fence on closeout at Wood Craft and got the dust port parts while I was there as well. I had the T-Slots so I put them in and I will make some feather boards tomorrow and install the front T-Slot for that T-slot then one day this week I will go back to Wood C...
Hello LJ, I did some practice planing today, using my Stanley 220. It is obvious that I have a ways to go before I am profecient with hand planes, but I can tell you, I am completely in love with them. Since there isn’t much one can write about, when all they did was make shavings, I did a bit of creative writing as well. I hope it is somewhat enjoyable. http://bit.ly/cplmTr Brian
Before I share my work for today. I want to thank you all for your comments. Doing a blog has in a sense, it has given me some motivation to do something everyday or at least try too. Tonight’s offering is simple. With time constraints I really didn’t have time to do everything I wanted to get done… but hey, I am getting things done. The first picture is something I never ever really thought I’d need in the workshop. I’ve always had a shop in the baseme...
