Shoe Carving Challenge #5: Remembering...

10-07-2010 05:20 PM by MsDebbieP | 8 comments »

Oct. 7/10 Today as I was carving out the toe area of my shoe (yes, it still looks like a shoe at this point!) I was contemplating what I could write about in my blog and thought that I wouldn’t have anything to say. (I know you boys are surprised at that and are probably breathing a sigh of relief as well)—but …. :) With my Dremel in hand I started thinking of when I first bought the tool. (Note: I was thinking BETWEEN carving sections… focus, focus, focus.) Anyw...

Stump Cuts

10-07-2010 04:49 PM by Neightdogg | 6 comments »

In wood turning there is a constant search for unique wood that will catch the eye and set a bowl or platter apart. The crotch, where a limb meets the main body of the tree, is a great place to find figured wood. When a limb forces its way in between growth rings, it causes a ripple in the surrounding wood like a pebble landing in water. The stump section of the tree is totally unique because the entire network of roots come together at one point, creating figure and beauty that can o...

well I wanted to be in the wood working field an now that I am I feel like I am at a loss of what to do. You ever get that deer in the headlights feeling? I am there with the car approaching fast. I am working on a set of cabinets but I can’t figure out what to charge for them, and I am at a point where I am not sure how to proceed. I can’t seem top get a tight joint on the rail an stile for the panel door. everything else is text book perfect, so again I come to my wood working B...

Not exactly woodworking, but close enough. #7: More shop progress. The storage shelf is up, another trash can is full...

10-07-2010 03:45 PM by dbhost | 5 comments »

I managed to get my 72” shelf hung 6’ 6” from the floor, and level. My handheld power tools are back up there where they belong. Boy is THAT a good feeling or what? In order to facilitate access to the wall, of course more junk had to get tossed. For what it’s worth, in the last 2 weeks, I have tossed out 3 full 64 gallon trash cart loads full of scraps / cutoffs that were almost all warped, twisted, knotty, or otherwise reasonably useless wood, along with foam, pap...

Tool Overview #2: Record Marples no. 4 Smoothing Plane

10-07-2010 02:16 PM by David Craig | 5 comments »

I think I caught the hand plane bug somewhere, maybe during the last LJ get together. It probably just festered under the surface and waited until my mind was weak enough before it bit. At any rate, after my experiences with tuning and working with my block planes, I felt the draw to pick up a smoothing plane. I checked the LN website and I am not quite ready to part with $400 to get their no. 4 and a cool little screwdriver so I went the ebay route. I didn’t see much there for a smooth...

Work in Progress #1: Patio Side Table in Cedar

10-07-2010 02:10 PM by MikeInPenetanguishene | 3 comments »

I started this project a while ago, but because of work haven’t had much time to work on it. By the time I’m done, it should be just in time to put it up for the winter! Oh well. This is my first project entirely done with hand tools. This is the top, 20” square and 1 3/8” thick. The legs are 4×4’s but planed down to a little less than 3.5” I’m not sure if these M&T joints have an official name, but they’re more li...
