Last week in my video showing my first turning project I showed you a Pen Press I made to press the parts of a turned pen together. I asked if you wanted to see a Pen Press How to video and the overall response was yes. So here you go. This is a great little jig for pen turners and those of you who are wanting to venture into pen turning. I hope you enjoy it. Part 1 Part 2
Just wanted to wish all of my LumberJocks brothers a Happy Father’s Day. I wish I still had my Dad to go visit tomorrow. Hope you all have a fabulous day.
You would think that a guy that has 25 years plus, building furniture would NOT make mistakes.Let me explain: I started with a simple drawing , with measurements of what the customer wanted,and I don’t usually build furniture out of Pine ( Used it cause it was FREE)I’m building a 4 drawer dresser with doors at the bottom, it’s a baby changing dresser. First thing I goofed on , cut both end panels 4” short, 36” X 18” and after I had almost all the machini...
We’re lovin’ this Cherry tone Danish Oil…. We jitter bug sanded w/ 220 and then hand sanded w/ 220 Here’s the top side of the cover after two coats of finish:
So first a question for you guys. If you headed for your shop on a Saturday morning, knew you had the day, and one of the first thing you did was dropped your #604 to the concrete floor, would you consider it a bad day because you dropped the Bedrock, or a good day because the only permanent damage was a broken tip off the tote which was easily repaired? Yes that’s how may day started Many more picture on my blog After gluing up the top piece, I fastened it with the wrap from t...

The idea of making this simple and natural by it’s natural aging properties was originated after looking the photos, which were made in the expedition in the rare Orthodox areas of the far Russia. I made the photos of natural and many centuries’ terms of the wood aging on the Kizhi isle, Republic of Karelia, people started to live here in 10th century, started to live with slavonic people. There are very many monuments of the wooden craft, still have them now in the good quality. Their Orthod...
The Plano is not a minor investment (I got mine used), but itdoes stay at the ready and it has a way of flattening boardsthat makes otherwise stubborn glue-ups easier. As you can see, I use bar clamps for added pressure,just to be thorough. It the ends are not lining up,I put deep-throat clamps on them. I am gluingtension into the glue-up. When I was younger I thought I would try to tune every board as flat aspossible, but in doing work for clients it’s often just not feasible wi...
I had a problem with polyurethane and lacquer on finished wood projects drying – especially when it was humid outside. I used to put them on a special rack in the furnace room but I recently tried putting them in the output air of the dehumidifier and it works just great.You might want to try that on rainy days to get the finish to dry so you can put on multiple coats in one day!
This will be my first go at restoring a wooden bodied hand plane. In the pics you’ll see it’s an older Stanley wooden bodied plane that is rusted up pretty bad. I can handle the rust issue with electrolysis like I’ve done many times before. As I’m typing this there are parts in the bath and last night I did the iron/blade….which is pitted pretty bad. But what concerns me are the checks in the wooden body and layers of gunk built up on the wood. In your...
