Summer Uke Build #1: Getting Ready for Summer (Concert) Uke Build

06-16-2016 08:09 PM by onoitsmatt | 2 comments »

I have been playing guitar for nearly 30 years and have been woodworking for about 16 years. For a long time, I have wanted to combine these two hobbies by building a guitar or two. About 18 months ago, I decided to commit to the idea, but realized I was such a hack woodworker, that I really needed to better understand what I was doing before trying to do something that requires the kind of precision a guitar build demands. To that end, I gave up power tools (except for a band saw and dri...

Stack of walnut #1: 4 foot console table

06-16-2016 02:35 PM by TeewinotWoodwork | 0 comments »

A friend of mine has a small saw mill operation and specializes in domestic hardwoods, mostly he uses his contacts throughout the US to find trees that he thinks are likely to have unique figure or color. I’ve been lucky enough to be able to dig through his pile of large and small branch stock that he mills into roughly 3 inch slabs. I’ve completed two projects and am working on a third. I would love criticisms, and/or advice, on these as they are my first attempts at woodworking ...

Hand plane blade camber vs straight edge, Your preference?

06-16-2016 01:59 PM by stefang | 9 comments »

My personal opinionI have put a slight camber on all my hand planes. I haven’t been overly happy with the result. Yes, it’s easier to push the plane, but I just can’t see how a cambered blade can deliver a truly flat surface. Now I realize that many top woodworkers who have forgotten more about woodworking than I will ever know swears by cambered blades, but I’ve also read articles by other equally skilled and experienced woodworkers who prefer the straight edge...

Make your own - shop aids, tools, jigs #1: Cake squares - not cookies

06-16-2016 11:52 AM by curliejones | 1 comment »

I’ve had a set of bench cookies for a while and just recently used them for the first time. I also had a set of risers and realized that called for a second set of cookies so I made a set of “cake squares”. I realized how helpful these would be for drilling and using the jig jaw on top of my bench. In a couple of one-hour sessions, a little shop fun was enjoyed. I used some 5/16-18 T-nuts (matches riser threads) in 3 in square 1/2” plywood, recessed so that a matching...

Maple & Cherry Nightstands #2: Nearly Finished

06-16-2016 05:15 AM by HappyHowie | 1 comment »

I have been spending my time in the shop to complete these nightstands instead of entering updates in my blog. Today I took the glued up drawer boxes and fitted them to their respective nightstand. I decided to cut dovetails for the sides where it fastens to the drawer front. I decided to go this way instead of cutting half-blind dovetails into the cherry drawer fronts. However, I made the cherry drawer fronts to match exactly the size of the poplar lumber I fitted with hand planes to t...

Paduak & Maple vase #3: Finished Turning

06-16-2016 02:58 AM by Julian | 4 comments »

Haven’t worked on this project for over a week. Finished turning and now I need to seal the woodbefore I sand. The paduak sanding dust will “bleed” onto the maple if not sealed properly.
