Floating Serpentine Shelf #1: Introduction

07-13-2017 07:44 PM by Ron Stewart | 0 comments »

This series of blog posts describes my Floating Serpentine Shelf project in detail. Over the past few months, my wife and I have completely reworked our study. We replaced the carpet with wood floors, painted the walls a nice shade of blue, bought new accent chairs, built a Modern Computer Desk with Integrated Cable Management, bought a new printer stand/ladder shelf, and updated some wall art. The only missing piece was some kind of bookcase or shelving unit to fill (in a sparse way) the ...

Historic Woodworker Videos #37: Israel and Albert Sack, Godfathers of Early American Furniture

This historic woodworker tribute video flashes back to the days when the price of antique furniture was always going up, and Americans loved early American furniture. The video focuses on the most prolific antique firms in the county, Israel Sacks, Inc., and that family’s ability to secure higher prices and more value for wooden furniture. IF you are curious about these life-stories or just like Antique Roadshows, click on my latest video at

Box Making #6: Off cuts/Scraps put to use

07-13-2017 10:09 AM by robscastle | 6 comments »

I just finished making some compartment boxes In the process I had a few off cuts of which naturally enough had been jointed and thicknessed. The timber was New Guinea Rosewood so it was worth saving as such. So today I got out the Gifkins Dovetail Jig again and set to work making four small boxes as a skill building activity. Once I had the Dovetails cut and glued up I sanded them all to 320 grit, rounded the corners over and applied a finishing coat of Shellawax. A n...

Standing Desk of Cherry #9: Lid work, hinges, PIP

Ok, I went back down and planed every edge.. Glued on the Book Rest..Fans…gotta have them ON..Cleaned up the dovetails… Fitted a gap filler for the bottom.. And got things ready for hinges….Bookrest was even planed smooth.. I also used this same Stanley, Made in England #4c to clean the dovetails up. Didn’t do too badly on the figured wood… Did I mention how I hate doing hinges?Have to dig out a space for the hinge to set in (on a beveled edge...

Zenith Z 5 Wood Corrugated Plane

07-12-2017 01:13 PM by sourdough | 9 comments »

Just acquired the above plane which is 13 15/16” 14” (?) in length. As far as I can determine it may have been manufactured in Canada. It has been welded on the base where, apparently it broke at the throat (or is that Mouth?).I doubt that it has any value but I am interested in the fact that I am able to locate so little information about it. It is quite rusty but I am considering dipping it in vinegar and see what appears. Currently I am in the midst of my first plane restoratio...

Tool Tip #29: Alternative use for Transfer Punches

07-12-2017 01:47 AM by robscastle | 4 comments »

I know everybody possibly has a set of transfer punches they use for aligning dowels and all sorts of other holes in our woodworking activities. However I found a alternative use for them as precision gauges. I was busy making some boxes with dividers for somebody you all know when I began fitting the dividers.It was then that I found I needed to resaw some of the dividers 1mm narrower to ensure a precise fit. As I only have a fairly crude setup on my crosscut sled I found tryin...
