Over the last year, the handsawgeek library has been greatly enhanced by the acquisition of two highly prized additions: Reproductions of the 1908 and 1927 Sears, Roebuck Catalogs. Many a pleasant evening has been spent perusing the pages of these two massive publications and being immersed in a perfect representation of what life might have been like in early 20th century America. Of course, being a hand tool woodworker, I was naturally drawn to the tool pages. The 1908 ...
I spent some time sanding and staining my Segmented Abstract Model today. This wasn’t my initial idea for a stain, but the first idea I had didn’t work how I wanted it to. I’m liking the look so far. comments and critiques always welcome.

A number of show attendees purchased burls last weekend… they dropped by to have some value added to their pieces.. This shows how simple the TWC makes flattening a burl… and as you know it is one of the most difficult procedures to accomplish without tear out or damage of some kind… This is not the case using the TWC… so simple … so effortless .. and so effective..

Well I honed the blade but did not put a secondary bevel on it yet. I am very pleased with its performance. With hardly any pressure I started this Rabbet on some hard wood scrap without scribing it first. The blade aligns perfect to the edge to follow the cutting edge making the cut a nice 90 degrees. I believe this plane is going to come in handy for cleaning up cuts. ThanksJerry
https://youtu.be/NL-KcL0LvNo Hello again folks! In my continuing work with reclaimed wood, I made a rustic bird house! I also made a video about it! Enjoy!
Being new to the “blogging” stuff here I go. Let me start out by saying I am new to woodworking and my goal is to learn how to 1. use my used/new woodworking equipment safely and efficiently and 2. learn how to cut/carve/sculpture wood into beautify/functional items. I want to be able to complete the interior trim work on the house my wife and I just built. I wanted to learn how to use my new Jet 18” band-saw first and foremost. I just completed a pretty neat little ...
I am designing the legs for Jenny’s walnut nightstand. The legs need to flare out at the bottom, like an inch or more. The legs need to stay within the boundaries of the case they will be attached to above. I use my knowledge of trigonometry to calculate what angle the 17 1/2 inch long legs should flare out. I know that I will be tapering these legs similar to Shaker furniture. However, I will only taper the inner edge of these legs. The taper will begin at or just under the skirt an...
