Hello fellow LJ’s, i just wanted to share this amazing find with ya’ll since we all (more or less) share the same love of wood. A rancher pushed over this enormous bois d’arc tree to make way for a fence (of all things) anyway he gave a buddy and me free range to cut as much of it as we wanted to. I was overjoyed and so far this is all I’ve gotten to the sawmill but there is much more to come. one of the huge benefits to living in deep east Texas is there are saw...
Uh Oh, I seemed to have started yet another project. What was I thinking? Anyhow, this project has been somewhat of a priority that I’ve been waiting on material for. It is going to be a lectern for Gracie Barra America. The back of the lectern will look like a Gi (lapelle) and this is one of the patches I am inlaying into it. This patch is made out of Paduak and Maple. Stay tuned. This project will be something else.

I keep telling myself that I’m not a collector…that I’m not on the slippery slope…and as long as I use them (it shouldn’t really matter if I have more than I actually need) I’m still ok-no intervention required. That said, I thought talk a bit about a couple of of the best hand planes out there for a relatively small amount of $$$. I’m referring to Keen-Kutters “K” series (Not the KK series, they are not the same) The K series (th...
Hello All, Today I made a couple of discoveries, one of which was about a resource for learning woodworking, that someone I had overlooked. I am sure that many of you already follow The Renaissance Woodworker blog, as do I. But today, while wondering around his site today I found that he has a huge collection of really well done podcasts on a vast array of topics. This was the the second of two discoveries which I made today. http://bit.ly/aMXi5I Brian
Wow, I can’t believe it’s almost done. I’ve been banging this workbench together FOREVER, and now I’m almost done. I just have to attach the clamps, do a little sanding on the top, and wha-la-lee, done! It’s a not a TRUE Nicholson workbench, I didn’t build the in table clamp, but it’s really close. Now I just need to get rid of a couple more things from the shop and I’ll be done. THEN WHAT WILL I DO?? ARCH! ;-) When I...
I made a clamping table for my Torque Work Centre I thought some of you might be interested in. The table was actually made on the Torque itself, which shows more of the versatily of the machine.I am setting up the machine to do fluted columns. More on that later. Thanks for the interest.For more on this check out mt blog on wordresshttp://kentshepherd.wordpress.com/

In this video you will see Aaron route a box from one piece of timber… MDF in this case…Video removed due to WHS issues… will be reposted when these issues have be addressed. Very simple … just route 4 grooves with a 45 degree V-bit cut the 4 corner pieces out with a sharp utility knife and fold up.. a little glue and two clamps… voile.
Hello All, Over the last few years, I have been collecting all kinds of tools. I am moving my machine and boxes and boxes of hand tools and accesories. I am looking for a storage solution that would be wall mounted to hold all the hand tools and power tools. I was thinking of a wall hung cabinets to house my hand held power tools, and at least another to house my hand tools. I need to do this on the cheap side as I spent alot of money on the shop, but on the other hand I don’t want i...
