Website totally Overhauled... MUCH better.

03-03-2010 08:43 PM by Blake | 14 comments »

K.I.S.S. …KEEP IT SIMPLE… right? Some of you will remember the old site. It was pretty good but not very straight forward. The navigation was not very intuitive. My new site is MUCH easier to figure how to get around. Please let me know what you think. And send me a note from the “contact” page so I know its working properly if you could. By the way, there are lots of photos so it may be a little slow to load. Here’s the link: http://www.blakeweberwoodwo...

Starting Upper Cut Woodworks #14: Thomas Walnut Dresser - Major Construction is Done!

04-20-2010 09:25 AM by Matt (Upper Cut) | 0 comments »

Well I’m behind on this project and I’m working my butt off. The case is done, trimmed out, and sanded. The drawer boxes are built and installed. Getting the position just right for inset drawers and metal drawer slides, well, sucks. I am hoping to deliver this Sunday afternoon. I work my regular job 8-5, come home and get some time with the family, them I’m in the shop 8pm-midnight. There are a lot of new blog entries about this project and woodworking over on my site Up...

Tool Gloat, sort of?

05-03-2010 08:26 PM by Kerry Drake | 4 comments »

My step father-in-law and my mother in law are going to move to Florida (hey, they older and its the law). He came by this weekend and dropped off some “old tools” that he had in a box in his shed. This last one is a Bailey #7 My only problems are: 1 – My sharpening skills suck. Saving up for a Worksharp station.2 – I have no idea how to “refurbish” hand planes3 – I have no skill with a hand plane. Need to find ...

Hi guys – Greetings from the Democratic Republic of Congo I am firmly ensconced in my tent and I have semi-reliable internet access. I have a ton of work to do even though Sunday is our off-day. Ah well, at least I have a few hours to catch up on all the projects, blogs and advice going on here. I’m glad I can be a lurker and stay in touch with you all, and enjoy the works displayed on this site. Hopefully all my ShopSmith spares will also have arrived by the time I get ho...

Garage sale find plus TLC equals nice plane

06-12-2010 09:24 PM by Shopsmithtom | 7 comments »

The other day I stopped at a garage sale in my neighborhood & lo & behold, (wow, I must be getting old, who uses that phrase anymore?) there was a bunch of tools in a box…hickory handled hammer, 2 vice grips, Stanley bit brace, Craftsman channel-lock, a few odds & ends (yes, both odds & ends…not just odds or just ends) and a used but not abused Sargent jack plane. Price for the box: $10. Now, mind you, I’m not a plane collector. But I do have a lot of hand...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #64: Back to the Scroll Saw (Finally!)

08-06-2010 01:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

After drawing and doing office stuff all week, I finally get to make some sawdust today. Even though it has only been a couple of days since I was last cutting, it somehow feels like weeks. I really like that part of the job. It is fun to see the drawings come to life and finally be able to hold the projects in my hand. I never think that things look as good on paper, and probably with good reason. They just don’t. I get a real sense of satisfaction seeing everything get cut out a...
