26 Jan 2015 Darn it! Ran into a ‘conumdrum’ of being unable to make the crooked morris chair arm as I did in the past. You know, cut from corner to corner and flip the cuts around. Well, I’ve been kinda dreading this time. My bandsaw is just not up to taking a 5” piece. Using the table saw isn’t on the radar either. Hmmmm? So as Baldrick would say to Black Adder: “Sir,I’ve a clevr idear. We could grow a tree with a 9.5 degree bend and w...
Recently, I bought a diamond ‘stone’ to sharpen the tool steel cutters on my RM. It seems to be worknig OK but soon I’ll be doing lathe tools and I would be guessing as to which type to get for the HHS tools as well as the carbide bits.any info would be greatly appreciated and links to your suppliers. Thanks in Advance
Trying to source hickory in the dimensions I need for a turning blank were more difficult than I anticipated. I looked in to bat billets but found them extremely expensive. I even looked into large hand tool handles, like sledge hammers and such. I could have made them work but there would be very small waste margin and seemed like more work than it was worth. I found 8/4 hickory dowels online but minimum orders and shipping were out of the question. I knew the best thing would be to just ...
It’s been far too long since I got out into my workspace and did anything (too cold, other personal stuff). So I decided today was the day I would try to replace my circle saw guide. The idea of a saw guide is not new and, I’m sure, nearly everyone has made one at one point. the idea is simple: You have a base that the shoe of the saw sits on and a straight edge on one side that the shoe rides against to give you a straight cut. Well, for reasons that can be summed up as ‘...

I began the project this weekend with repairs…. nothing too exciting here. The first problem I addressed was the lower frame which was falling apart. On the back side of the console cabinet there is a screw block holding a rail to the side of the cabinet. A screw was missing and the rail had come loose. Check out the huge adjustable double loop AM antenna… going to keep that and use it for the tuner for better AM reception… looking forward to listening to a few bas...
Like most other home hobbyist woodworkers, I generally have to squeeze my shop time in around all the other life activities: the full time job, family time, church activities, household chores, yard work, and, in my case, music practice. Available daily time to make sawdust and shavings ranges anywhere from twenty minutes to 1 hour per any given session. Some days, it doesn’t even happen at all. I usually make it a point to spend around 15 minutes in the shop early each morning whi...
I wood Burn art and doing my first oar from an old canoe. I have ac couple of cracks in the handle of the oar and decided to put leather around the handle part. Not sure how to do this with out making a big mess. I do one of a kind stuff never done twice so it is very important this is done right. Any one out there that can help? One day real soon I plan on trying to burn leather with my wood burner, is this possible?
