The American Craftsman WorkShop #26: Video Update

03-24-2010 08:21 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 10 comments »

I have been anxious to get the cameras out and do some more video so I did an update from the American Craftsman Workshop. Thanks to the following guys for helping me get my own site started. It is a work in progress at the moment, but they really helped me figure a lot of things out sooner than later. Marc Spagnuolo – Matt Vanderlist – Brian Havens – Troy Bouffard – ...

One find leads to another

03-24-2010 07:56 AM by digitalwood | 1 comment »

Dustbunnie’s accident had me searching randomly on Google for riving knifes. In the process, I ran across this article on Finewoodworking ( Man hurts himself on a table saw and sues the manufacturer because they didn’t license the SawStop technology. What was more interesting was the hundreds of comments on the story. I don’t know which bothered me more, the ones about tort reform, or the ones that said ...

Extremely Average #81: Call it being paranoid...

03-24-2010 04:51 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

But last night, late last night, actually early in the morning, I became paranoid about a little bit of a screw that remained in the router table top. If you are interested in why I thought that this bit of a screw might ultimately lead to a horrible and tragic death, then feel free to read on.

The "What am I doing?" Holtzapffel Workbench #9: One Leg down!

03-24-2010 04:36 AM by DragonLady | 7 comments »

For those of you that are actually following along with me on this project (as deranged as you must be…) you may remember my last post, wherein I managed to crack one of the leg boards right down the middle: I was initially going to scrap that, but a few messages got me thinking. It probably won’t really affect the structural strength all that much, especially if I orient the cracked face so it doesn’t hold a mortise. So I decided to go ahead with that leg. Four-square...

Local Resources #3: Vienna Hardwoods - Vienna, VA

03-23-2010 10:32 PM by BradHess | 6 comments »

Vienna hardwoods is a great local resource for finding wood. They have a ton of wood jammed into a small space and carry all the normal domestics along with some exotics here and there. They also have a ton of shorts and scraps hidden in corners. For example last time I was there they had several large mahogany crotch veneer core panels (52×36 x 1.25) that I grabbed to use as a table top. Check out there website and stop in and check out their stock. T...

tragedies #10: I just planed a board :)

03-23-2010 09:25 PM by Gary Fixler | 5 comments »

It all sounded pretty normal. The first attempt was met with a lot of knocking. Perhaps I had it too low. Hitting stop, raising it, and trying again worked fine, though there were a few slightly raised lines, about 1/4+ wide. I must have chipped the blades slightly. No matter – I can flip them around to the new edges, and I have another pack waiting if I need them. It does look like there’s a slight difference between left and right sides, but I’m talking something like 1...

Mystery tools; non-woodworking

03-23-2010 08:13 PM by YorkshireStewart | 17 comments »

Here’s a couple of pictures of just a few from a box of tools that have just been donated to the museum where I do voluntary work. They’re mostly in cast brass. My thoughts were that they’re for decorative plaster work. Can anyone confirm? Any other ideas?Tiles are 6” to give a guide as to sizes.
