Cherry Spoon #1: Sawing the outline

10-31-2011 06:25 AM by tr33surg3on | 1 comment »

I started a wooden spoon as a practice carving project. It’s kind of like a very miniature mandolin back plate, neck and head stock. My coping saw is right near the top of the list for my least favorite tool, but it got the job done with a little help from a keyhole saw to cut the outline from a cherry blank (left over from the knife handles). The design will be very simple for this first one with an eye for actually being usable. It’s only slightly bigger than a large t...

Milling on the Bandsaw

11-15-2011 06:53 PM by LelandStone | 3 comments »

For some while now I’ve had some lemon and olive logs simply…growing old in my shop, waiting for me to “get around to it” and make some sort of milling attachment for my ShopFox bandsaw. (No, I wouldn’t buy it again; it’s a machine which cuts corners where it shouldn’t, in my opinion.) Naturally, I wanted a cradle that would adjust in and out relative to the blade (on the X-axis?), while allowing me to rotate the log 90 degrees AND holding it secu...

Vintage Hand Tools #2: The Keen Kutter K5 Plane

12-01-2011 01:44 AM by Brandon | 18 comments »

The first bench plane that I purchased was a Buck Bros jack plane. I bought it at Home Depot on a whim. I typically like to research products before purchasing them, but I failed to do that with this plane. It looked nice enough, but I didn’t really know what to look for at the time. Alas, my Buck Bros plane was a big disappointment because I didn’t know how to tune it up and it left a rough, chunky finish on the wood. I wanted to know what was so special about those hand planes that everyone...

Take two speaker boxes that are worse for wear, and kind of water logged. Then say, “heck they aren’t exactly cheap speakers either. ummmmmmm” Mission speakers. Remove guts of both speakers. Put in plasted container and seal. Turn round and now say… “ummm now what?... followed by a gulp, ”...and he wants two… hmmmm “ Okay we first made a router jig so we can do some nice daedo to fit the speakers into and then finish the cross cut tab...

CO Workshop Update #3

12-31-2011 02:33 PM by mnpete | 0 comments »

After a great Christmas visit with the family back east I was able to get some time in the basement shop yesterday. Still no woodworking done, but the shop continues to come along. I’m hoping to get another 8-10 hours down there over the long weekend.

I came across this cool angle fixture as they are characterizing it but it has far more potential than just this; I see it as an angle tool for all sorts of applications. At the very least I hope it is inspiring to others.

Review of Tropical Exotic Hardwoods of Latin America

03-12-2012 02:08 AM by jusfine | 6 comments »

As we were taking in some rays in the Palm Springs area last month, I had the urge to see some lumber or tools, and realized it was not a long drive to Carlsbad California to the Tropical Exotic Hardwoods supplier. Their website is here It was relatively easy to find with GPS, and the warehouse was large and well lit. There were a few customers while we were there (about an hour), but it was not really busy – it was a week day around lunch time. They had ...
