Hand Tool Skills #1: My Journey Towards Proficiency

01-20-2008 08:31 PM by Jeff | 9 comments »

“My Journey Towards Proficiency.” That’s a lofty statement, isn’t it? Let’s just say it’s a goal I have the intention of reaching at some level, some day. There seems to be a lot of chatter about hand tools in the world of woodworking lately and I am glad it is occurring. As most of you probably know, this can be a decidedly partisan discussion. I don’t want to get into that type of discussion because a person’s tool choice really comes down to what makes them happy and gets th...

Dovetail Box #10: Next Obstacle: The Lid

03-01-2008 03:25 PM by Eric | 2 comments »

NOTE: As is my custom, my list of newbie questions are at the end of this post. So a week or two ago I wrote about my plans for the box lid. In short, it was going to have mitered edges with a thin strip of the lighter-colored sapwood (would you call it an inlay?) in between the mitered edges and the center piece. Today I took advantage of the Saturday down time to try to make it happen. A few days ago, I resawed a small block of wood 1/2” thick and ripped it into four pieces each...

Building a Dream - my 1st real workshop #1: Building the shell

03-26-2008 12:41 AM by Yettiman | 10 comments »

The time had come after five years of night classes (2 hours once a week) to get my first workshop.. A few dinners out with the wife, plus the promise of unlimited furnture, to her exacting (well I can at least promise) requirements, and I had the budget $6,000 (£3,000) to include everything Building, Tools & Setup costs. I negociated with a local farmer for permission to have my Workroom next to some stables, my own land being too small. The land was a little damp After w...

Dinosaurs & Dragons #1: Test runs

04-27-2008 08:06 AM by Alan | 5 comments »

So some friends are leaving town permanently for Vancouver and we are getting together this weekend with them and their two boys, one older and the other younger than The Dragon. I’ve had it in mind to make a Dino-Train set so I decided to make a couple of dinos for the boys as going away presents. Took about three hours to make the two and I’m pretty happy with how they turned out as tests. I’ll do them again and I think they will be better from what I learned ...

Summer Challenge 2008 #1: In the Beginning was Ugly

07-12-2008 06:24 PM by Russel | 11 comments »

It has been said that it is a valuable exercise to blog a project from beginning to end. That seems reasonable to me, though I often forget to keep track of what I’m doing while I’m doing it so I don’t get a lot of progress pictures. With the summer challenge, I am going to attempt to document what I’m doing as I’m doing it. I’m expecting there to be gaps in the timeline (just like the gaps in my memory), but I’ll do my best to make them small. ...
