Wow! We had a super-quick turnaround from Matt and some really cool stuff added. He did a great write up on his takes and puts as well as some projects he did for the swap. If you missed it check that out here. I’m looking forward to getting my grubby hands on some of the wine barrel wood, I really enjoy turning wood with a story to it! ~ Le Map ~ For those counting the dots, we didn’t miss one… bigguy had to drop out due to some other commitments. We’...

Walker Turner restoration #2: Slow going.....but will be worth it

03-17-2009 05:17 PM by MedicKen | 4 comments »

I have been slowly working on restoring the Walker Turner table saw. So far I have completely disassembled the saw and removed most of the rust from the smaller pieces. I originally thought it was only surface rust, but after getting into the saw it was more than I thought. Over all the saw is in good condition given its age. After doing some research and talking to the guys at I have determined the saw was built in 1944 or ‘45. I have been using electrolysis to remove the rust...

Work(shop) in Progress #5: Drill Press Table

03-17-2009 04:08 PM by PurpLev | 13 comments »

I cannot take full credit for this, as this is an upgrade I’ve made to my old drill press table with an idea I’ve seen on Woodscrap’s workshop page. My original table was just 3/4” birch plywood, which was too thin, and when I installed the t-tracks in it, the slot I routed left the plywood useless as there wasnt enough material left to keep it sturdy, and not enough material for the screws to hold into. The new table is 3/4” birch ply laminated with hardboard...

Kitchen Cabinet/s

03-17-2009 02:21 PM by Moron | 15 comments »

Being on semi-down time, I thought I would post a pic or two. First pics are some of the upper cabinets on a kitchen I am making from maple veneer core plywoods and solid poplar facings, tongue and groove backs. The style has become one of my favorites as in my opinion they are timeless. I really like the wooden muttins on the glass doors and I like the curved detailed bead mouldings, simple yet kinda elegant. Now overwhelming in decadance but regal?......there are two of them, one right, one...

The utensil making process #2: Sanding The Spoon

03-17-2009 05:50 AM by osageman | 3 comments »

I don’t know if I need a disclaimer or not on safety. So I will just add that, you need to take precaution when sanding and working around power equipment. Just be safe and know your tools… Now you have your pattern cut out, and you are ready to start sanding the shape. There is really no easy way to explain the process with out photos or videos. I will leave it up to you to read between the lines, (so to speak) There is 3 parts to a wooden utensil, 1.) the bowl. 2.) the nec...

Parbuckle - Loading logs the easy way

03-17-2009 04:03 AM by mart | 10 comments »

I got this tip from a post of Daren Nelson’s some time back. I often haul logs to the sawmill to be milled and loading them can be a tough job without some assistance. I tried sliding them up a ramp onto the back of the trailer till I read about using a parbuckle. Basically one uses a rope anchored at two points and a power source (a 4 wheeler winch in this case) to roll the log up a set of ramps and on to the trailer. Works really slick. These pictures should help explain the process. ...

The twin screw...

03-17-2009 03:30 AM by Loogie | 0 comments »

For the twin screw vise I was a little worried about the chop cupping over time and I couldn’t find any quarter-sawn 10/4 Ash so I laminated three pieces of 4/4 together. Here the chop is sitting on top of the two blocks that will be glued to the underside of the bench for the screws. I secured the blocks to the chop with double-sided tape and drilled the 1 1/2” holes thru both pieces at the the same time to ensure proper alignment. Then I glued the blocks to the bottom of ...

Building a new workbench #10: Time to install the tail vise

03-17-2009 02:43 AM by Loogie | 5 comments »

For the tail vise I chose the Jorgensen 41012 quick-release vise. The vise comes with lag screws to attach it to the bottom of the bench, but I decided to thru-bolt it to the bench for increased security. To mark the holes for the vise I flipped it upside down on the top of the bench and marked the centers for the holes, but this location deosn’t take into account the fact that the face of the vise will be mortised into the end of the bench in order for it to be flush, so I then moved t...
