Tool Tip #11: Liquid Hide Glue expired no good? Pt 1

5 days ago by robscastle | 6 comments »

Earlier in 2014 I was working with Liquid hide glue, and had a container on the shelf, upon checking it there was a shelf life expiry date 20/2010 so I went and bought another. I did some tests on both at the time, pre May 2014 and I did not see any discernable differences in the expired glue and the fresh batch I had just bought, so both went on the shelf. There they stayed until today, I was readings Stefangs blog on his home made LHG. He conducted some strength destruction tests o...

Filling the guts of your Dutch tool chest #3: Lid panel saw fixtures

5 days ago by Brad | 4 comments »

I created two fixtures similar to Christopher Schwarz in order to dock two panel saws (rip and XC) to the inside lid surface. After trial and error, I came up with these fixture dimensions: The rip saw’s handle faces to the left while the XC saw’s handle is located to the right-hand side of the lid. When the lid is open, the teeth face upward. Since each saw is wider toward the handle than the toe, the groove to house this portion of them is longer. I laid the saws one over another and...

Traditional Woodworking Tours #9: Elia Bizzarri's Windsor Chair Workshop Tour

5 days ago by WoodAndShop | 0 comments »

In my above video I share my recent tour of Elia Bizzari’s traditional Windsor chair workshop in Hillsboro, North Carolina. I found Elia to not only be warm & welcoming, but incredibly hilarious. We had some great laughs together in his workshop and will be working on filming a DVD together in the near future. Please contact me if a Windsor chair tutorial DVD interests you. Elia started traditional woodworking as a teenager, and eventually discovered his passion for making trad...

On Transitioning to a Traditional Tool Chest

6 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 31 comments »

Not going to pretend any of this is ground-breaking, just jotting a few notes to LJs that others may find interesting or useful as part of their own, unique journey. Building a tool chest is one of a number of ‘trend’ activities that have captured the attention of a significant number of people. Just like building a Roubo, constructing an auto-adjust leg vise and using a portable twin screw vise (or “Moxon”) specifically for joinery or a ‘bench on bench.’ There’s a particular interest in the ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1365: New Ornaments Cut

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

Yesterday was busy from dawn to dusk – and beyond! I am thrilled to say that the ornaments that I drew up over the weekend were accepted for Scroll Saw Woodworking and Crafts holiday issue of the magazine. I am really excited about this, because I haven't done much work with them and I hope to become a regular contributor. Last year I had one of my candle trays in that publication, and I have been trying to remind myself to submit to them regularly, but I often let the time sli...

Destructive Testing my Homemade Liquid Hide Glue (cold hide glue)

6 days ago by stefang | 22 comments »

I glued up these fir strips a couple of days ago for destructive testing of my homemade liquid hide glue. For those that don’t know, this glue stays in liquid form when cold and it is also used cold. It takes a lot longer than most glues to set and dry and it has to be clamped or in the case of veneers, pressed, but it can be a great option when you need a long open time and you are not in a big hurry. This product is hot hide glue with salt added. The recipe is in my last blog here. Th...

Mesquite Tree #5: Final Destination, The Mesquite Is Now Home

6 days ago by Blackie_ | 11 comments »

Ok to continue my backyard Mesquite tree adventure, the cut and dried Mesquite slabs are now at home, picked up this morning, Had a set back in the ordeal though, once I dropped them off roughly 3 months ago the owner made sure that I understood if any metal in the wood destroyed blades that I would be responsible and I acknowledged and understood, a week or two later after dropping the logs off, I received a call letting me know the wood was ready that they had been cut and ready for pickup ...
