Hand Tool Skills & Fear

02-01-2009 02:53 AM by Chris | 9 comments »

I had a very interesting day today….. I spent it at the local Woodcraft demoing (is that a word?) hand cut dovetails. After many questions and several hours speaking with quite a few customers and observers I discovered that there are a large number of us that hold a certain amount of fear with regards to hand work. Things like basic handsaw techniques, chopping & paring with a chisel, sharpening, etc…. A great number of these questions came in a flurry from one particular ...

Calling all New Jersey, PA and NY Lumberjocks

02-21-2009 12:43 PM by acanthuscarver | 5 comments »

It’s just about time to take the show on the road again. Next weekend (Feb. 27, 28 and Mar 1) I’ll be exhibiting and demonstrating at The Woodworking Shows Somerset, NJ. It should be a great time! Last year’s show was pretty heavily attended and I expect from the crowds I’ve seen at the other shows this year will be even better. So, come on out and I’ll show you how to cut some dovetails. If you attend the show, please stop by the booth and identify yourself. I&#...

Finally Planing

03-27-2009 02:19 AM by Safetyboy | 8 comments »

My company gives out monetary awards for patents that we get filed… I got one last week, so I decided to make an addition to my plane family and add a Lee-Valley Bevel-Up Jointer (to the space lovingly reserved for it when I built my toolbox): I’ve had a #4 smoother for about a year, but have never managed to be very successful with it.. I’ve tried to use it to clean up boards out of my power planer, but always ended up simply mangling the board instead. This time,...

Matt's Long Awaited Workshop Renovation #8: Happiness is an Electrical Upgrade

04-13-2009 04:32 AM by Matt | 1 comment »

Well, we’re just waiting on the inspector and it will all be done. The guys showed up on Saturday morning and got straight to work. 2 1/2 hours later, they were done and I was several hundred dollars poorer. Haha. In all actuality, I’m glad I hired a pro to do this. I have a couple of brackets to add to some conduit before the inspector gets here and I should be good to go. Now, who wants to come over and help me run all the conduit for all the circuits after my inspect...

Knitting box #1: Getting the rough shape of the box

05-21-2009 12:35 AM by Luke | 2 comments »

So I started with 8/4 zebra wood that I bought off my brother. He builds bass guitars for a living and had some left over wood. I resawed the wood down to about 5/8” on my craftsman 12”(given to me by my father in law) with a Woodslicer 3-4, 1/2” blade from highland woodworking… Amazing blade, if you have a bandsaw and need a resaw blade for it check them out because it cuts like a hot knife through butter compared to ANY other blade I’ve used yet. https://www.hi...

30 projects in 30 days #7: week one in review, with supplemental projects!

06-08-2009 03:57 AM by scottb | 3 comments »

One week, three pens, three rings, two stoppers, a bowl, garden waterer/composter, and something I can’t show you. ... And finally, to avoid the need for a spoiler alert, on the chance a fellow geocacher finds me here, I submit no photos for one of the “supplemental” projects I’ve done this week. (If I had pictures, I’d claim it as a real project) This and the garden bin would take me into next week. Lately, I’ve gotten into geocaching, and...

IN this video I go over how to refinish a fish tank stand. In this project I used 20 random orbit sander discs. I should have used a finish remover but its to late now but I finished sanding it with 220 grit paper and then I put 4 coats of polyurathane.
