Hello all. I am a retired Coast Guard Chief Warrant Officer who had a total of 32 years active service. I am still employed by the Coast Guard as a civilian supervisor in marine vessel inspections in Houston, TX. I have been in-and-out of woodworking my entire adult life but for the past 10-12 years it has been more DIY projects around the house than it has been creating new and interesting things out of wood. In 2005, I got transferred to Washington D.C. and knew that I would not have ...

Using a Router and Hand Tools to Shape a Seat.

01-10-2018 04:51 PM by davemoorefurniture | 3 comments »

I’ve used routers many times to do the bulk removal of wood when shaping a solid seat. But, I’ve never done it totally freehand like I do in this video. In the past I’ve made large patterns that a router-on-sled would follow with a collar. Each subsequent pattern requires a different depth of cut and what you end up with is something that reminds me of the tiers of a quarry that undulate along the natural path of the topography, concentrically. It really makes you fe...

African Mahogany & Curly Maple Coffee Table #6: Top edge profiling, sanding, and oil

01-10-2018 05:36 AM by Reinan | 1 comment »

Sanded the breadboards in tonight, and used a 1/8 roundover bit to break the top and bottom edges of the top panel. Then added some BLO mixed 50/50 with MS to brighten it up and show it off a little. I like the way the mahogany grain aligns with the curl in the maple and I really love the quarter-sawn curly maple on the edges.

Plantation Shutters #21: first shellac coat applied

01-10-2018 03:47 AM by Holbs | 0 comments »

Now with my saw bench completed and before I start on joinery bench, I best finish my plantation shutter project. I needed a way to vertically hang my 8 shutters while drying. I saw this at a local auction and won it: a portable breakdown’able laundry hanger. Made hooks with my jack chain and 30lb fishing line. It works! Tried out the spray tent which also collapses to a small footprint. Lots of backspray as I did not have the back flap open but with garage door and man door open...

Name that tool brand...

01-09-2018 09:52 PM by Peter_VDK | 1 comment »

I have recently bought this for being a stanley #12 1/2 scraper plane, but It has no makers logo or naming what so ever and when comparing it to stanley #12 1/2 pictures from the web, it does not look 100% the same. Is there anyone here that recognizes this brand of scraper?

Online Training

01-09-2018 07:23 PM by Scheol | 1 comment »

Good day fellow woodworkers! I have been pondering on the idea of joining an online woodworking teaching platform. I am mostly a evening/night woodworker so despite owning a lot of power tools I tend to favour the hand tool approach (dust and noise are the deal breakers for my family). Also, I would like a paid platform that offers step-by-step instruction for a given project. My four go-to woodworkers online each have a paid subscription to their blogs and all seems to charge roughly the ...
