Good morning all!

04-19-2012 03:20 PM by AJLastra | 11 comments »

I have been a faithful reader of this forum for quite a while and finally got up the nerve to join. You guys and gals are such tremendous crafts people and I just wanted to say, it is an honor and a privilege to be able to talk wood with all of you. A bit about me. I am retired Air Force, having spent 18 years as both an active duty and reservist JAG. I am an attorney full time but really, I am a woodworker full time. I started working wood in 1987 by fixing a picnic table in my back yar...

Tool Picking #1: Cinco de Mayo - Tool Picks

05-05-2012 11:30 PM by TrBlu | 6 comments »

Beautiful day in Northeast Alabama to do a little tool picking. First stop, gathered 4 pipe clamps, 8 corner clamps, froe, Wilkinson folding drawknife, Disston one-man crosscut saw, and 10 woodworking books. One of the books was about colecting old tools. LOL Walked away from this sale only $60 lighter, in the pocket. At the second stop was only about a block away from first. I spotted this Disston D-8 Swayback. Picked it up, had it in my hand while lookin...

Transitional restores #3: #34 What, a Jointer?

07-06-2012 04:05 PM by Don W | 13 comments »

I won this on Ebay for a pretty reasonable price. All Ive done is soak the metal parts in evapo-rust and give the wood a coat of BLO and wax. I fixed the tote with a piece of beech from a donor transitional body I had laying around. The blade was wire wheeled and sharpened. I don’t have time to upload all the action shots, but they can be seen thanksdw

Laminated Walnut Bowl #3: Milestone #2

07-21-2012 03:12 AM by kweinert | 2 comments »

The first milestone was when I launched the bowl earlier in the process. The second milestone was when I tried making the inside larger than the outside. But only on one side. All is not lost.

But if you ever need to make a bunch of rings, the jigs I made for this work out really nicely.
