Why buy it when you can make it! #7: Improv Fir Step Stool [Part 3] - SAS Regiment

4 days ago by paxorion | 1 comment »

After a brief hiatus thanks to work and social obligations (groomsman in a friend’s wedding), I finally had a chance to dive into the SAS regiment (sand, assemble, stain). This project is certainly becoming an interesting exercise in using up what I have lying around. Sanding: I sanded all the parts (except the top) down to 220 grit prior to the glue-up. It can get tricky sanding small parts (with a random orbit sander) when you don’t have a vise, but you’d be amazed wh...

Disston Handsaw Restoration #5: I think I am finished

4 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

4 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

4 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

4 days ago by stefang | 23 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

4 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.
