Dovetail Pen Turning #4: Success!!

01-14-2010 07:14 PM by SNSpencer | 4 comments »

Dovetail Pen Progress Success!! It took a few more tries but I finally have a set of pen blanks worth of being assembled into a final writing instrument. Some more issues that I have run into along the way are: Working with Padauk and CA glue – I found that when I was applying the CA glue to the blanks to stabilize the chipout that the glue would pick up the color from the Padauk. This in effect became a “stain” that would penetrate the Maple and start to turn it pink. I solved this ...

Dovetail Pen Turning #3: Picture Progress Update

01-14-2010 06:31 PM by SNSpencer | 1 comment »

Dovetail Pen Progress Pictures. OK, I managed to get a few pictures off the camera. Just bare with me, this is my “garage” camera so the resolution/quality is not top notch. The three following picture are: #1 – My collection of dovetailed pen blanks. End to end joints for the dovetails. #2 – A closeup of some of the chipout I experienced along the joint seams. You can see the CA glue that I used to solve this issue in the picture. #3 – Finished pen blanks, first attempt. In this pi...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #21: Shop Organization - The Payoff

01-14-2010 06:29 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 19 comments »

Like Searching for El Dorado... Open space in the wood shop can be as elusive as El Dorado, the lost city of gold. I am fortunate enough to have a shop large enough that I can have some open space to assemble and stage projects before sending them out. Just as efficiency is critical for my survival, so is open space. Space is necessary to stage incoming materials, assemble, finish, and stage projects for shipping. Space Is A Vacuum Open space in the shop creates a vacuum and it wi...

Thanks for the fond welcome aborad! I do a fair amount of woodworking and enjoy all the aspects of all sectors. I enjoy carving, turning, ban saw boxes, scroll saw projects.

I will be retireing next year and I can hardly wait. There is just something about being in one’s shop the hurry up world goes away. So thanks again for the ...

Overwhelmed By Projects

01-14-2010 03:30 PM by Maveric777 | 14 comments »

Well I guess the title of this blog can be misleading. It is not so much a bad thing I suppose. I am tickled to have so much stuff lined up that I am wanting to build. The problem is I find myself looking like a dog chasing my tail. Right now I have three separate projects going on (was four but it crashed and burned…lol) and I only have so much free time to work on them. Seems like every day I see something else that sparks the old mind up and pulls me in another direction. As of ri...

Blog Posts #4: Photo of Krenov Hand Plane

01-14-2010 07:19 AM by JSZ | 0 comments »

In response to a large number of requests, I posted a photo of Krenov’s hand plane on my blog. I appologize in advance for the poor quality of the picture; I took it with my cell phone. In the next day or so I will re-shoot with a higher-quality camera and then re-post those images. Sincere thanks to everyone who has reviewed and commented on the blog and via email. One more time, here is the link to the post with the photo.
