Disston Handsaw Restoration #5: I think I am finished

2 days ago by Skip Mathews | 5 comments »

This saw turned out awesome !!! One final picture of gluing up the repairs.I was just thinking… the wood I used to repair the tote was cut out of a plane almost exactly the same age as the saw being repaired. I worried a lot about matching the finish, but you know what ?! I think it looks absolutely awesome like this!!! I still need to finish the chip carving. I am so excited about the way it turned out!!The old beech wood is a really nice contrast to the apple wood.By the way, it...

Weekend Project - Cherry Wall Cabinet #2: Day Two

2 days ago by Guy Dunlap | 4 comments »

In this video of the series, I fit the shelves and then I can start making the door for the cabinet. I unfortunately made a mistake which set me back from finishing the cabinet within the time frame that I set for myself. Still I made some good progress and it’s really starting to look good. And as always, I like to hear your comments and questions!

New Guinea Rosewood Boxes #2: Fabricating the Box frame timber

2 days ago by robscastle | 9 comments »

The usual jointing and preparation of the NGR stock took place. These are the blanks I used edge glued to achieve the depth I wanted They are jointed on the reverse edges, meaning facing down out of view I made a total of six sections 4 x for the sides and 2 x for the ends Then it was into the thicknesser to reduce them all to the same thickness.Then on to the table saw to square one end. Once that was done it was then out with the steel rule to measure precisely the inside lip...

LEARNING MARQUETRY #1: Chevalet marquetry 101

2 days ago by stefang | 22 comments »

WARNING, LONG AND POTENTIALLY VERY BORING BLOG! Shortly after finishing my Chevalet Paul aka Shipwright asked me if I would be interested in doing a little project where I could learn a few basic marquetry skills and use my Chevy to do the cutting with. I think he knew that I was a little worried about working with thin veneers and he thought this would help me get started. The only serious marquetry I have done prior to this was my chinese dragon cut from solid wood about 5mm thick which...

Twin Pipe Vise

2 days ago by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

I’m tired of seeing all these moxon vises and not making my own. They are pretty expensive. I really need something to act as a front vise on my bench. This takes care of that problem and it also raises any cutting that i’ll be doing by 7 1/2” (which helps out the back). Here is my version of the moxon vise using two pipe clamps. Check out the video. Please subscribe to my channel and check out all the other videos on there.

Filling the guts of your Dutch tool chest #1: What I wish I knew before my build

2 days ago by Brad | 1 comment »

Chris Schwarz’ plans for building a Dutch tool chest in Popular Woodworking Magazine are pretty straight forward. It’s an easy build. I would have loved more detail on making the lid. And if by “more” you take that to mean “any”, then you’re correct. The drawings for the large tool chest also fail to show the notches you’ll need to cut into the middle shelf to accommodate the battens on the fall-front door. Other than that, the plans did their job. That is, until I got to configuring ...

The Board, Pt. ll

2 days ago by Gene Howe | 20 comments »

Well, after two power outages that caused the loss of the last two attempts, I think I’ve got this “save” thing down. We left off last time with a admonition to make a detailed plan of the proposed final project for which the board we are about to make will be used. The next step is to select the lumber with which to make the board. This is a major step. First the species is to be determined. MDF is out! As is plywood. Rose wood is nice and so is bird’s eye maple...
