Carving a small spoon

3 days ago by filiplaw | 1 comment »

I had a small piece of pine laying around and a free afternoon so I decided to carve another spoon. I wanted it to be small (somewhere between a teaspoon and a tablespoon) and simple in shape. I traced around some plastic spoon I had in my kitchen and altered the handle shape a bit. With the outline ready I went to work. I made some stop-cuts with a saw and bashed out the waste with a 20mm chisel. I also did the same to the underside since the stock was way too thick for a spoon.I find ...

Desk Repair #1: Back to work...

3 days ago by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Back in the heart of winter, oh, about a month ago, before my surgeries, before Percoset, before spring….my wife and I decided to switch our dining room with our office. We had wood floors put in and the change has not only made the house look better but made us (her) VERY happy. The flooring was installed while I recovered from surgery #1 (planned). The everything had to wait while I recovered from surgery #2 (unplanned!). Despite all that drama during March, things progressed ...

Opening Day 2014

3 days ago by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

It’s official! The Vaught Woodworks Shop is open for 2014. The weather finally eased the death grip it’s had on our necks up here in Wisconsin and it got to 65° today!!! It felt like high summer after a George R. R. Martin winter (any longer and I would have started seeing white walkers….). After the month I’ve had (a scheduled…ahem…family planning operation for me in the first week of March, followed by my father-in-law having a life threatening run ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1293: New Projects on our Site

3 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It was a very tumultuous night here in Nova Scotia. I don’t think I heard wind like that in all the years that I had been living here. At least it was warm though, as we heard that nearly everyone located west of us was once again experiencing snow. I fully expected to wake up to more snow on the ground, but it is still very warm and raining. The wind gusts were fierce. They awoke me several times, as the house was actually shaking. At about 3:30 in the morning, we heard our recycl...

My Site #48: EP050 - The Woodworking Show - Milwaukee 2014

3 days ago by RavinHeart | 1 comment »

Earlier this year I took a ride down to the Woodworking Show in Milwaukee. I had the opportunity to do some filming and as always pick up a few things for myself. I now have a couple of new texturing tools from Ron Brown and got a pretty good deal on a big pack of foam brushes. There was time to catch up with Andy Chidwick and his family when I got the show. As you can see in the video I had a chance to speak with several of the exhibitors including Ron Brown, Earlex, Aqua Coat, Dubs Longboar...

Wooden Planes #12: Jatoba smoother

3 days ago by Mark Kornell | 4 comments »

This is another jatoba plane. Apart from sanding end grain, jatoba is a relatively easy wood to work with. Machines well, holds an edge and seems to be pretty stable. I’ve also not (yet) encountered any boards with reaction wood. Kind of smells like a wet dog when being cut. I like it for planes because it is dense – the added mass in a small plane really helps performance. No stripes this time, just jatoba and an ipe sole. The bed is a fairly steep 60 degrees, which releg...
