In the final construction phase of the project its time to put the stand on the back so as that it will stand upright but tilt just a little to make it easy to see what your looking at… All I used in this is 2” brass hinge , 2.5” x .5” pine board leftover from the lip and a little bit of cord… One more thing that I put on was 1.5” piece on the back of the stand at the bottom to reinforce the L and to be honest the board I used developed a little b...
I am finishing a maple piece. It is sanded 120, 150. I am getting ready to go to a 180 then a 220 before applying a wood conditioner (2 coats with a 320 sanding after each) before using a wiping stain. Am I on the right track? I feel I might be over sanding but not sure. Getting sanding fatigue! haha
Even woodworkers living on the cheap have to occasionally spend a little more to get a worthwhile value. This $70 honing guide is the only one below $200 that accurately clamps and provides precisions honing angles for chisels and plane irons. The $15 guide I have now is worthless on chisels and so-so on plane irons. Already I have ruined a couple chisels from uncorrectable skewed clamping. Not having an accurate method to keep these chisels and irons sharp is like having a car and not being ...
I have an ongoing problem with too many wood working Project Creations too much WW materials and not enough room.There is very little I can do to improve the situation but dump “stuff” or work out a better storage system.Dumping is not an option as I may as well give away my beloved woodworking activities, so this is what I did. I had lots of recycled timber so I chose to convert them it into a work bench, thinking I could solve both problems at once so its really a storage ...

I love talking to other woodworkers and hearing how their journey in the craft started. I recently met Madison Swords, and I just loved his story of how he got started in woodworking, so I had to share it with you. Madison is a self-taught woodworker and he learned everything from YouTube. I was not only impressed with that, but the fact that he choose to go the hand tool route, and his for his first furniture project, he choose to tackle a Greene & Greene side table. I was absolutely ...
I have a 3’ x 8’ steel work table and I have another work table (Allan Little style), but neither lend themselves to mounting a traditional vise for hand tool work so I decided to build another work surface. This time a simple and practical split top work bench. I want the bench to be practical with no frivolous joinery and to be able to disassemble it into component parts. I started, of course, by buying a Wilton wood vise: I decided, pretty arbitrarily, on about 5...
Whew, my workweek is finally over and now I can have some fun. I’ve been thinking all week about today, particularly what I still need to get to push this project along. I needed a jig to cut the mortises, and I was looking at pattern bits and I came away with an education. Top bearing straight cut pattern bits are expensive. I didn’t want to spend that much so I went to woodcraft last week when I bought my last pieces of wood for the leg and rail, and picked up a guide bushing fr...
”Pine Bark Box”....okay having said that, let me say it once again, a ’one piece bark, four sided pine box’.... The bark for this box was stripped off vertical with the tree while still green, actually about three days after I dropped the tree. By getting the bark off right away, the bark will just pop off the tree with a lockback knife. After this the bark will bend easily at three corners and all you need to do then, is secure and stabilize in the rough shape that...
