Mongo: my first real workbench #1: Planning and Laminating

03-22-2017 07:35 PM by TheRiflesSpiral | 0 comments »

All my work surfaces are specific to a tool… outfeed table on a table saw, infeed and outfeed tables on a router table, long benches on either side of a radial arm saw and power miter saw station, etc. I’ve been without a general work surface ever since I started working wood in my own shop. A such, my projects tend to move from whatever tool I’m not using to whatever tool I just used and none are really suitable for any handwork which is where my focus has started to tur...

Oregon Woodturning Symposium 2017

03-22-2017 07:34 PM by magaoitin | 2 comments »

So this last weekend (March 17-19) I attended the Oregon Woodturning Symposium in Albany OR. Due to my work schedule and living in another State, I couldn’t take off Friday to attend all of the shows on Friday, but I was able to get in some phenomenal demonstrations, meet some amazing pro turners and even got to say hi to Youtube phenom Carl Jacobson. It’s hard not to fanboy too much when meeting these guys, but I have to say they are all fantastic people along with being amazing turners....

"Square" Turnings #1: Off-Cut Turning #1

03-22-2017 07:06 PM by onefullturn | 0 comments »

I recently posted a project involving a square turning and was asked how it is done. I often use this method to turn small boxes from off-cuts. Let’s start with this piece of spalted maple. It has nice spalting and a bit of spongy wood on one face. That part will be turned away. I start by mounting between centres and truing up the face near the tailstock. With small pieces like this, turning the corners does usually not present any problems. I start with a 1/4 inch bowl gouge to...

Hand planes #4: Stanley SW no 5 Antique Mall resto

03-22-2017 03:08 PM by Mike54Ohio | 1 comment »

Finally got around to attacking the restoration on the SW no 5 I picked up at the antique mall last month. The biggest issue was that the tote was broken at the horn and I had never attempted a repair on that type of damage before. I only had to give $11 for the plane when I scored it – the blade and cap iron etc were pretty rusty. Before pics: I threw all the small stuff into evaporust for clean-up and decided to try something different on the plane sole for rust rem...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1828: I'm Still Here!

03-22-2017 12:33 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It seems like it has been forever since I posted a blog. As a person who posted a new blog nearly every day for over five years, it seems that I have been quite lax lately in keeping up. I apologize about that.It isn't that I am not busy. Quite the opposite is true. It seems that the floodgates have been opened and all of a sudden things are really kind of wild. That in itself is wonderful, but it is also kind of scary. While I am thrilled and excited about this recent 'growth spurt&#...
