What's this tool? #1: Marking Hatchet?

04-23-2010 10:30 PM by swirt | 8 comments »

This odd hand axe belonged to my Great Grandfather (Living in Swain NY in the first half of the 1900’s). He was a farmer, ran a small saw mill and made maple syrup among many other things. This hatchet may have been connected to one of these activities. If anyone knows more about this particular marking axe, I’d enjoy hearing about it. The axe is just over 12” in length. Has a 2” rounded blade that is not sharp and appears to never have had a bevel applied to it...

New Member and Build

It hasn’t taken long to get too much work to keep me busy. Unfortunately, circumstances and administrative distractions took a toll on my time in the shop lately. It became apparent that I needed to hire someone to help me. The last thing I want is to turn away work, if possible. I spent the week looking for an employee and got several great responses. After many interviews, I was contacted by a woman, Miranda, who seemed very eager to apply and interview for the job. We finally met and talke...

So I found a guy selling a router table (same brand as my router! Right size!) for $25 on a local classified ad. I’m nabbing it. That should be good. When I bought the router, I didn’t realize how useful the table would be, so I didn’t think I needed it. Mistake! So now I’m fixing that, and it’s cheaper than if I had purchased it in the first place! Woo! -Silas

The Dreaded Vacation Slide Show

04-23-2010 03:49 PM by CharlieM1958 | 33 comments »

This has absolutely nothing to do with woodworking, but by popular demand here are a few vacation photos. (Okay, I’m stretching the definition of “popular demand” a bit.) .

Gracie lectern #2: Progress

04-23-2010 05:13 AM by kolwdwrkr | 2 comments »

Got the sides pressed and cut to length. I taped the scaled template to the sides to show the concept. The back will be layered and have a carved belt. The Logo I am working on (red circle) will be inlayed in the top left corner. I still need to cut the parts for the back and lay them up. Then I can inlay the circle and the letters you see drawn. Then on the chest section there will be an elaborate marquetry pattern, and is meant to look like a shirt under the gi. I have many more weeks...

Extremely Average #111: Lawn Care...Woodworking's Evil Twin

04-23-2010 03:24 AM by Ecocandle | 4 comments »

Hello Lumberjocks, Tonight’s post, on a scale of 1 to 37, is a solid 29. I am not sure if the woodworking community will care to read about my lawn adventure today, or agree that Lawn Care is the Evil twin of Woodworking, but I welcome the debate. There is one other significant aspect to tonight’s blog. I have, to some small measure, tipped the scales a little bit away from my obvious cat bias, and included a really cute picture of Maggie, the neighbor’s dog. I am s...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #73: What Is Your Size of Wood Art

04-23-2010 02:07 AM by frank | 3 comments »

What is Your Size of Wood Art…. ….or does size matter when it comes to working the wood? What is the size you think of when working with wood? And so I have put together a few photos of how I often see into the wood. Trees come in all shapes and sizes and what I do with them often determines their final proportion. Now that I think upon that last sentence I am not sure about the use of the words….’final proportion’. How often have I my-self often received some p...
