WIRE WHEEL: Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhereunder the workbench with the speed of light. Also removes fingerprintsand hard-earned calluses from fingers in about the time it takes youto say, ...

Shoe Rack

01-26-2010 05:43 PM by Jonathan | 14 comments »

This is my first project since joining the site, and my second woodworking project overall. Last week, I completed the Kreg workbench so I’d have an area to build other projects on. After seeing the shoerack built by mckenziedrums here: _http://lumberjocks.com/projects/26304_ I liked the project so well, I thought I’d try to closely reproduce it, with a few changes of my own. I didn’t have, nor did I want to purchase any curly maple. I also just picked up a couple c...

Garage workshop/lumber storage #2: New addition to the Garage/Shop.... PICS ADDED

01-26-2010 04:58 PM by AngelofDeath | 5 comments »

I found a pretty decent deal on CL for me at least. I picked up an old Delta Rockwell lathe from a gentleman on there. Model # 62-610 and it came with all the original tool rests and I mean all of them….Even got a book “getting the most from your lathe” No. 4703 by Delta copyright 1954. Also came with the original tools Delta Rockwell Catalog No. 130: 1” skew, 1/2” skew, 3/4” gouge, 1/2” gouge, 1/4” gouge, 1/4” parting tool, 1/2” ro...

Sketchup Resources #5: Incra 17" LS Positioner System

01-26-2010 04:28 PM by PurpLev | 10 comments »

Finally got the fence and was able to model it out last night. I wish I had the opportunity to do this earlier, or at least have this model before I cut the hole in my router table top for the router plate as based on this fence I would have liked to put it 2.5” more to the front. but. 2.5” is not that critical, and I could move the fence backwards if needed. hope this can help someone else: this is not a production model, but just a model to help visualize and design a ro...

Double Dovetail Box #4: Cutting The Remaining Dovetails

01-26-2010 03:23 PM by Don | 4 comments »

I didn’t quite get the box assembled on Sunday but I was close. Next step after gluing the corners is to cut the remaining half blind dovetail joints. I thought I was going to have to do a second setup on my jig to cut these like I had to on my Spalted Mango Box but I didn’t. On this box I’m reversing the joints end for end rather than doing a mirror image. Half blind dovetails are actually always reversed end for end like this when cut on an Omnijig and probobly on most ...

Ax Handles by Gary Snyder - Poem

01-26-2010 01:19 PM by David Craig | 0 comments »

Good morning all, Just read a blog by Todd Clippinger regarding the fact that we are responsible for inspiring the next generation of woodworkers. It reminded me of a Poem by Gary Snyder. Gary is one of the original beat poets back in the sixties and was very much a conservationist, woodworker, an all around hands on guy when it came to nature and work. This poem was written about an experience he had with his son Kai. It is a poem I believe that truly belongs on a wall in every woodworker...

Woodworking Perspectives #2: Woodworking - The Next Generation

01-26-2010 09:59 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 25 comments »

Passing the Torch With the passing of iconic woodworkers and one retiring a TV program in 2009, there was a lot of talk about who would take up the cause and so generously share their time and knowledge? Who would lead, teach, and inspire the woodworkers of tomorrow? The answer is pretty simple as I see it, it is You and Me. Inspiring the next generation of woodworkers is as simple as allowing the kids, grandkids, or someone you are mentoring share time in the shop. More Than ...

Plane restoration #11: Stanley No 102 and a little bit of work on a No 220

01-26-2010 08:46 AM by Alonso | 9 comments »

Folks, This last weekend I was able to get to work on a block plane that I just left aside the day I got it, also I was able to do some more work on a No 220 that I blogged here a few days ago. Its really impressive how a couple of hours of work can change a tool so dramatically not just to look better but also to perform better. Sorry about the blurry photos but again I forgot to take some pics before starting the restoration and I just got a couple of screenshots from the seller ...
