Another older video that has become my most-viewed video on YouTube, with over 58,000 views. I read about this in American Woodworker and decided to try it out. Give it a shot…it’s easy and gives visitors to your house something to talk about.

Dan's Blackbutt Roubo Bench #5: Handles: Part 1

03-06-2010 01:57 AM by DoctorDan | 4 comments »

(Click for fullsize pic) I need to make/have made some handles for the steel rod that functions as the parallel bar stopper. I’ve come up with a few possibilities trying to incorporate the concave, and convex curves of other details on the bench, as well as traditional chisel design. The bench is blackbutt, the vise handles rosewood. I have blackbutt (fiddleback, burl or straight), redgum or blackwood available to use. (Discussion at WoodWork Forums.) Any thoughts or suggestions? ...

Garden Chair #1: The Story & the Start

03-06-2010 01:02 AM by Zuki | 6 comments »

Hey all. I have not blogged much in a while now, but now I have a project that I call Garden Chair. DW had this wooden chair given to her a few years ago. She loved the chair and used it out in the garden when she got a few spare moments to enjoy nature. Well after years of being outside it got a little worse for wear and started coming apart. She asked if I could put is back together for her to use as well as make one for her to use in the house. So there you have it . . . a project....

004: cheap, rolling lathe stand #5: dust hood mount solution

03-06-2010 12:06 AM by Gary Fixler | 20 comments »

This one’s been in the works for awhile, and by that I mean I’ve pondered it in my head for a few minutes here and there over the last several months. I’ve had the general idea most of that time, but this week I pondered even harder than ever and imagined all of the pieces. I just wanted something simple that could hold one of the two dust hoods I’ve ended up with from Rockler, but I wanted to be able to tilt it forward over the piece, or backward out of the way, an...

Just snuck back from Johnson's Workbench, WOW!

03-05-2010 10:13 PM by jockmike2 | 20 comments »

WOW! what I mean is I spent $150.00 simolioans and all I had was a bag the size of a six pack comes in and 5 boards, none over a foot and a half long, and none thicker than 2 inches. Cripes, what am I gonna tell my wife. By the way, Cripes is in no way related to Our Savior, Jesus Christ. The boards do have funny names like canerva, and brawainia and I think one was called canika dinka something. Way overpriced at $25.00 a board inch. But being dark brown like that I knew it had to be special...

Amazing Tools #9: Lie-Nielsen planes

03-05-2010 09:56 PM by Gary Fixler | 11 comments »

I think I need help. It’s happening. I cannot stop researching planes and workbenches lately. I don’t have room for a bench, nor money for any planes, but they’re just so enticing! Lie-Nielsen has been the most attractive by far, but I find it staggering the number of planes available – 44 standards listed, with an additional 30 variants, not including left/right hand options for the few that have them (same price in each case). The bench plane model numbers (e.g. N...

Spindles #4: The agony of de feet.

03-05-2010 05:58 PM by Lisa Chan | 9 comments »

... and the back. And the throat! I flew through minor throat surgery with flying colors. It kept me out of the shop for 5 days. In that time, I managed to work up a pretty decent backlog of orders. (I create and sell custom tools for hand spinning yarn.) Catching up has been a mixed bag. I’m feeling a little off my sculpting game. So my first spindle, while functional and to the order of my client, just didn’t please me. The weight was too much, the Cherry bruised, the bead...

Shaker Table - Woodworkers Fighting Cancer #2: My First Mortise

03-05-2010 05:30 PM by Kerry Drake | 2 comments »

Started working on the Mortises for the Shaker Table March Guild Build. Pulled out my drill press that I haven’t used sense June and added a auxiliary table to it so I could put on a fence to keep all my mortises in exactly the same position. This is my first time using Birch and it seems fairly hard to me. Was getting a little smoke drilling my 1/4” holes, maybe the drill press is set to too slow a speed? Anyway got all the legs rough Mortised out. I’ve go...
