An artists perspective #2: Sharpening Straight chisels

02-16-2009 11:42 PM by kolwdwrkr | 5 comments »

To start this off I want to say that I am in no way an expert sharpener. The method I am going to describe is the way I do it with the equipment that I have. There are many methods of work, as well as different tools and jigs to make the process easier. The method I am going to share is using a sharpening wheel and water stones. Tools needed:Wet grinder (this tool is not necessary for sharpening. If you do not have the machine skip that step of the process)800 grit water stone1200 grit wa...

Interesting Guitar Design

02-16-2009 11:33 PM by Dr_Unix | 8 comments »

I came across an interesting guitar design on Yanko Design and was wondering what woodworkers and guitar players think. Does anyone see any problems with the design? Would it play, sound the same as a normally shaped electric guitar?

It's My Turn!

02-16-2009 10:19 PM by Grandy | 10 comments »

I grew up loving the smell of sawdust! My Great Uncle John Rutherford had a woodworking shop and a huge garden. I remember sitting and watching him turning stairway spindles for hours…and he did it all by hand without a duplicator! That was over 45 years ago! My Dad was also a woodworker. He built my bedroom suite and numerous pieces of doll furniture. He put beautiful pine panelling in the home I grew up in and remodeled a home that was originally built by a civil war veteran nam...

02-16-2009 09:20 PM by newTim | 1 comment »

Got some time out in the shop, next step was to cut, fit, and join the back splats. Once again the Mortise Pal worked exceptionally well producing very tight and accurate fit. Here’s the breakdown of the center splat assembly.

Preventing Table Saw, Jointer, etc. Rust

02-16-2009 04:39 PM by hokieman | 14 comments »

I got word I have to move to San Antonio from Memphis. Not good. Anyway, I will likely have my tools in storage for as much as a year until we get a house in San Antonio (long story). Anyone got any idea on the best way to prevent rust buildup on my table? I have kept it in really good shape and recently but a couple of coats of auto wax on the surfaces but is there a better way to protect them until I get them out of storage? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Building a new workbench #7: First time base assembly

02-16-2009 04:51 AM by Loogie | 9 comments »

Ok, All the parts have been trimmed and fit so it’s time to put the base together for the the first time. It will have to come apart multiple times after this for some finishing touches. I can attest that I am unable to rack this base AT ALL – even though the top rails aren’t secure with their lag bolts yet. That sure will be nice. My old bench would shake and jiggle when I was planing on it. Next I will be drilling the holes in the two rails on this side of the bench...

New Shop #1: Sketchup of Shop Layout

02-16-2009 04:11 AM by Devin | 16 comments »

Hi everyone, well, after almost 4 years of continuously fine tuning my crawlspace shop, with no access larger than 30ish inches, I’m moving into a home with a basement. You know what this means, more room for my shop! I’m going from roughly 90 square feet (seriously, it’s that small), some of which is well under 6 feet tall (I’m 6’1”) to somewhere in the area of 240 square feet. Next stop, two car garage…but lets not get ahead of ourselves. For th...
