So along with several other LumberJocks, I got an 8” Slow Speed Grinder recently (last week). This weekend I decided to spend some time to make a stand for it. It only took me about an hour to build this, and I only used a pair of 2×4’s and a piece of 12” x 18” 3/4” plywood (and some screws) I also have a rough set of ‘planes’ that I made for it as well. Was pretty simple to do. Unfortunately, the camera was being less than coo...
Here is an Aussie invention that may interest beekeepers and those who are thinking of taking it up.It takes a lot of the work out of the usual process of kitting up when robbing the hive.See link below to several videos, particularly the ones about harvesting the honey.There is a woodworking aspect in the design of the boxes.. http://www.honeyflow.com/gallery-videos/videos/p/60
Something I found on a weekend trip. I have heard these stones are pretty good but very hard to find.This one is in very near mint condition.I have never used anything but oil stones so this is a good addition to my tool box.Almost hate to get it dirty :)
I’d love to be able to say that all went well in this weekends pergola work, but sadly that’s not the case. The jig performed as expected, and dare I say was doing a grand job until all of a sudden something went horribly wrong. The wood was just to much for the equipment. Either the 3” pattern bit (1/2”) bent or I’ve forever damaged the shaft of my $300 – $400 Bosch router, I’m hoping it’s the bit. But it suddenly started to vibrate uncon...
Last year I made two carving knives and when I was on holiday I did the first attemt to do some chip carving. I liked carving in front of my caravan but wasn,t entirely satisfied with my own made knives. So last week I made two new one’s and below you can see the process. .... I wasn,t able (too few hands) to make picture’s of the cutting process. I did this with an angle grinder..... Thanks for watching
I am been working very hard for the last month at my day job (have to knock that off), and so progress has been slow. Our guild als0 had a sharpening day yesterday with Dick Christensen showing handsaw sharpening as well as chisel and scraper sharpening. Dick is the best sharpener that I know. All of that plus spring coming and firewood cutting beckoning makes it tough to work on the table and I also picked up a second 8 inch jointer which is another long story. I have the stretcher all c...
Holy Cats! It’s gonna happen! I’ve been accepted as a participant in my first public show and sale! It’ll be at a place called “Bench” up in Omaha on May 16th. For an Old-Guy-Who’s-Been-Around-Some,it’s kinda weird how excited yet apprehensive I am about this. OK, so it’s not the Durham or Joslyn Museum gallery, but it’s pretty cool. They bill themselves as “a public woodworking shop, co-working space and artisan hub”, sort ...

Just trying to gather up what I have left and get a game plan together. The bench has been in quasi use as I finish the vises up but the vises are going to be necessary for a few of the projects I have on board so the quicker I can finish these up and get them in use, the better! Something tells me they’ll be the toughest parts though. 1. Lower Brace – needs cut and holes bored 2. Wagon pieces – are cut but not assembled /holes drilled. 3. base block /wedge 2 – cut...
