Wood Scavenging #5: The Maple Monstrosity!

02-22-2013 09:06 PM by Eric M. Saperstein | 12 comments »

Well – here we have a maple monstrosity! IDK what this sucker weighs but we had to chip off a few small chunks to lighten it for a Ford 555 to lift it. We split about 1/4 off the main trunk and the cut the front hollow section off. Fortunately we had the help of an excavator w/ a grippy-grabber (technical term) to hoist it off at the mill. This seems to contain burl, curl, and some misc other malformations. We have no idea yet what is inside – we will find out when we cut it op...

The old time woodshop journals #44: Back to the bench!

05-09-2013 08:59 PM by jjw5858 | 3 comments »

Since taking such an extended time learning many aspects of carving spoons from green timber, I began to miss the other parts of working wood. I missed the use of my old Stanleys, Disstons, and Millers Falls! Yeah….I am a hand tool galoot for sure….GALOOTS UNITE!...LOL. Of course while just starting to excel at carving, understanding the grips and sculpture of spoon making, it was easy to have a worry that my other skills were getting some rust as much as the tools began too!.....

Delta Contractor Style Table Saw Storage Cabinet #2: Starting all over again

05-26-2013 12:39 AM by Harley130 | 0 comments »

Changed the entire plan now. Decided to put the support legs back under the wing on the right side. I thought it had enough support with the rails of the fence but I didn’t think about the tipping point. So for stabilization purposes I put the legs back on. With legs back in place, it reduced the total width available for the cabinet by 5” so now it’s back to the drawing board. I did go ahead and cut the two sides and the top and bottom today and assembled them. Now ...

Anyone know how they fill the wooden knife handles with resin? Tung oil? Varnish? Is it soaked for a long time then wiped off?

Time to Step Up My Skills #7: Looking ahead to figure out what kind of finish I want

07-24-2013 02:34 AM by AngieO | 15 comments »

So… I bought a compass over the weekend so I can do my curves on my bench. Also… A friend of mine gave me a jigsaw. He had three… all the same kind… so he gave me one. Cool! So I’m close to cutting my end pieces. But over the last week I’ve been checking out Charles Neil and some videos of his on finishing. Got me really thinking about my finish on this thing. I hate the finishing process. I get these projects built and get to a point where I’m pre...
