2nd cutting board almost done

08-11-2010 09:07 PM by Rustic | 2 comments »

Well my 2nd attempt at a cutting board is almost done I am in the finish stage now. I made this one roughly 2 inches thick out of som scrap walnut and maple. I jointed the edges with my router table and then borrowed Jim Jakosh’s jointer to flatten the faces for a near seamless glue up. I first glued 4 pieces together and so on. until I had 3 sections. Then I used biscuits to join the sections together. They were almost perfectly flat, had a few high spots, that I sanded with the belt s...

Wright Bros Woodshop

08-11-2010 03:23 PM by DanW | 12 comments »

I was reading through my e-mail at work, when I came across one that mentioned The Wright State University Library (I work for an Ohio Library). Anyway, they have digitized all of their Wright Bro photos and being a plane (or is it plain?)fanatic, I checked it out. I found the following photo, and thought that this would be a good place to show it.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #69: Question for You (Kind of Woodworking Related)

08-11-2010 01:52 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 22 comments »

A couple of days ago, my buddy (Cosmos35) posted a blog which asked a question of all of us. I found this to be really an interesting thing, as it gave us a chance to really get to know each other a little bit better. As I read the responses, it was a nice chance to see what drove others to doing what all brought us here together in the first place. I love learning about people and since I have come here to LJ’s, I feel as if I have made many friends. Many of them don’t post t...

tuning up an old plane #1: The plane..

08-11-2010 01:46 PM by Camper | 11 comments »

I am planning on documenting how I will tune up an old plane. I know nothing about planes and sharpening so there may be a lot of mistakes on the way. I have learnt a lot by looking around the web and reading blogs on LJs. So here is the plane. It has no brand name on it, but in 2 locations it says “Made in USA”. I picked it up for $5 from a garage sale. Anyone know more about this guy? I found the following links useful on LJs: Link 1 Link 2 I also picked ...

I was bored

08-11-2010 01:16 PM by Flemming | 5 comments »

i’ve been rather restless as of late… maybe its the a.d.d. :P… anyway, as is in the title, i was quite bored and needed something to do. my next project is slowly beginning to take shape in my mind and i’ve settled upon a serving tray with some marquetry and until the “final” plan (plans always change) has been made i wanted to do something small in the meantime. I’ve been absolutely fascinated by the rings i’ve seen on LJ’s, not least ...

Workshop Build #23: The Front Porch

08-11-2010 05:42 AM by ~Julie~ | 8 comments »

Here is a sketch I made a few years ago before the building of our workshop/garage: Now, how to get that front porch on there? We had two large cement post holders put 13 feet apart when we did the garage pour. These have saddles set into them to hold 6” x 6” posts. We wanted the porch roof to have the same slope as the whole roof, so we had to figure out the length the posts would need to be to make the roof come at the right location above the door and light. We...

Extremely Average #220: Sanding Away the Hours

Hello All, Today I mostly sanded lids. Noting too exciting there. But as I set the beautiful pieces of wood next to one another, I started to see things a bit differently, and I found inspiration. Brian

Could anyone tell me what this old tool is ?It is shaped like a drawknive. It has no cutting edge. The handles are spaced about 10 inches apart. I think it is used to shape logs for log homes.
