Shop stuff #57: 1950's Record #4 Rehab

09-18-2016 01:52 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, this turned into a long one. I bought an Record #4 smoothing plane and reconditioned it back into a health as a gift to my son. He is just getting into woodworking after spending some time in my shop with me so I figured I would promote the addiction. Took a long time to edit and a long time to upload. Rural internet speeds here are not very fast….lol. I should have specified that the Dremel has a cotton cone shaped buff on it and not a stone. View on YouTube

09-18-2016 01:26 PM by Bob Casey | 2 comments »

I love working with exotics and hardwood, but some times you need some pine for projects for craft shows. SO WHAT HAS HAPPENED? I go to the big box store you know who they are and they have this composite S—- they call whiteboard they are passing off. Anybody in Syracuse or central New York still selling PINE?

Trestle Table #12: Next Steps: Cut Tenons Using Twin Blade Joinery Method

09-17-2016 09:37 PM by HappyHowie | 3 comments »

I began work in my shop this morning by squaring up the corners or ends of these router bit made mortises. As you can see I have an Irwin Marples 3/8” or 10 mm hand chisel as well as a Robert Sorby mortising chisel in the same size 3/8” or 10 mm. For this blog entry I am writing what I plan to do next instead of writing briefly what I did in my shop. Maybe this way I will be more thorough and clear of what my steps will be. I subscribe to Woodcraft Magazine. I lov...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #12: Framing the Drawers

09-17-2016 01:25 PM by EarlS | 1 comment »

After dry fitting the legs and stretcher I moved on to glueing things together. Wedges were pounded into the tenons. I never really put much thought into making thin wedges so when it came time to make some, I was at a loss. I wound up using the tapering jig on the table saw to rip thin, tapered strips to use as wedges. It was probably not the most efficient or creative way to make them. Anyone have a good way to make thin wedges? Cutting the wedges off and sanding them smooth w...
