My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #8: Cut, Sand, Repeat. Cut, Sand, Repeat...

485 days ago by Ethan Harris | 4 comments »

Hello Readers! There is a glimmer of light in the progress department of my small business. The brightest spot being that orders keep coming in at a steady pace. The Ugly has reared its head however in the form of doing the same process, over, and over, and over again only to repeat it again and again… I find myself trying to stay ahead of the orders, trying to not think about the fact that in the course of three weeks I have made over a 1000 square 1.5×1.5×1.5 inch blocks&...

Roubo Workbench Build #3: Looking for advice on vices - Also, progress with the top

436 days ago by Willeh | 8 comments »

While i’ve been progressing quite well with the top, i’ve been fighting myself on vice options. Unfortunately, I need to figure out what kind of end vice i’m going to go with before I finish gluing up the top so I don’t limit my options. I’ve glued up the back half of the top so far, and I really need to figure out the end/tail vice before i really go any further. Ive been fighting back and forth between two options: 1. Using something like a face vice o...

379 days ago by darkhollow | 0 comments »

At the end of Sept/beginning of Oct 2013 I will be teaching a one-week class at the John C. Campbell Folk School on the subject of Hewing and carving bowls and spoons! If you haven’t yet heard of the Folk School, it is the oldest school of craft in the country, having been founded in the 1930s. Located in Brasstown, NC, the campus is beautiful, with about 20 classes going on at any time ranging from woodworking, woodcarving, blacksmithing, pottery, metalworking, weaving, music, tradit...

The Siegley Collection #3: The #18 knuckle

294 days ago by Don W | 11 comments »

So I’ve read that the Jacob Siegley got his first plane patent in 1878. Most of m information comes from 2 sources. Patented Transitional and Metallic Planes in America by Roger Smith and Plane Makers of Wilkes-Barre Pennsylvania by John F. Rumpf. Siegley made his planes until 1901, when Stanley bought him out and continued making his planes. In 1903 he signed an extension to allow his name to be used in additional planes (not sure what that really means) but he also was paid by Stan...

Haven’t had much time in the shop lately, but I did get my bench finished finally and I painted here and there as part of my shop improvement campaign. I am not nearly done, but I am taking a little at a time. With Christmas around the corner I have get back to doing some projects. My ambition level is fairly low this year as I am planning to build a Chevalet and it’s all I can think about right now. Here are some before and after pics of what I’ve been up to this week. I...

Table Saw Fence

230 days ago by scvwood27 | 2 comments »

Just purchased a used Biesemeyer fence system and the it was not locking into position properly. I then saw a small piece of rectangular white plastic (approx 1 ” x 1.5”) had fallen of the fence from somewhere. The piece appears to be able to be glued back on. Does anybody know where this piece goes and if it is affecting the locking mechanism of the fence? Pictures would be great. Danny

Chess pieces and board #3: Finishing Off Lathe

161 days ago by Luke | 0 comments »

I usually just finish the chess pieces one at a time. I wanted to be able to get a good smooth finish on them like you do on the lathe but still be able to turn another piece without having to wait for them to dry in between coats.This is what I came up with. I drilled a 1/4” hole into 3/4” dowel and inserted a 1/4” dowel to chuck in the drill. I drilled a 3/4” hole in the holder and used a round file to ream it out so there is enough play to let it spin freely. After ...
