Is this Maple?

12-21-2013 06:32 PM by Jamie McDonald | 8 comments »

So I haver had this natural board for quite a while now. When I purchased it I was told that it was Maple. Immediately underneath the board in question is a table made out of curly maple. Both boards have only a clear finish on them. Does the top board look like maple or is it something else?

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1242: A Busy Week Ahead

02-10-2014 12:44 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I can’t believe that after getting up on time, it seems I am already running late! (It is just after 8am as I am writing, and so much to do today!) I spent the morning catching up on emails and so forth, as I took a day (partially) away from the computer yesterday to have a little break and accomplish some things. It is a constant batter for me between staying connected and getting actual things done. I find that it can be so easy to spend the entire day ‘visiting’ with ...

Roy Underhill style Maul / Mallet - Black Walnut #3: cleaning it up

02-26-2014 02:31 AM by jordanp | 8 comments »

Short entry here. I scraped the majority of the bark off with a draw knife and let it continue to dry some more. Now I’ve moved on to the spoke shave and smoothed it all out.. I also used my belt sander to smooth the edges around the top and bottom of the head of the maul..I also gave the end grain a second coat of paint to further prevent checking. Next up wrapping the handle with leather!

The stash hates paint can messes. And when the stash hates something, he fixes it. If you have 60 seconds, you can see how… Now leave a comment or the stash will get angry. And you don’t want to see the Stash when he’s angry… (Friend us on facebook, follow us on Twitter, and visit the Stumpy Store to help support the show!)

04-21-2014 12:02 AM by robscastle | 1 comment »

I have been working in Sydney with my boys doing electrical work at schools whilst the holidays are on.One of the tasks was to repair restore broken switches and emergency stops in the wood working shop. We then had to service the Outdoor Dust Collector/Extractor. (just the job for an electrician!) Good thing I have an interest in wood working ! otherwise it would have been a “No Way reply! My son and I accepted the task and away we went. We opened the side access panels of ...

Maloof Low Back Chairs #2: Roughed In

05-14-2014 12:37 AM by Dave G | 0 comments »

This is a quick entry to record the results of roughing in the maple chair. It’s rarely a good idea to rush these entries and I expect there to be some trouble arising in the form of tough questions. The roughing went a lot better than I expected, as far as getting a pleasing shape. By going slowly, mostly with the Festool grinder and a bit with the Nicholson rasps, the chair shapes up really well. The screw holes still need plugging. I bought a new 7/16 plug cutter just for...

Sapele & Cherry Kitchen Table #5: Hand planes and shavings

06-05-2014 02:24 AM by CaptainKlutz | 4 comments »

The saga continues. Spent the morning flattening the top of the Sapele panel, and trimming the ends square.Apologies, but I forgot to take a picture before my son and I flipped it over to work on the bottom side. Was sort of anticlimactic when top was flat. Not much to see in an unfinished flat 39X108” Sapele panel? Here is the bottom of the panel, with my caulk marks on what needs work in my next hand plane marathon. As I was shutting down and cleaning up due the 104 degree...

This is Jalen’s interview on The Highland Woodworker. His interview starts at the 19:20 mark. I need to make one disclaimer. Jalen was not on the cover of Fine Woodworking.

Shop Organisation #2: Leftover Wooden Creates

08-11-2014 05:43 PM by woodoogolem | 3 comments »

At least here in Germany stores are often offering leftover packaging material to their customers to package their goods. Often there are wooden creates which were used to transport fruits or vegetables. The bads ones I store for the winter for burning, the good ones make fine storage boxes: I use them to group material for the projects I am working on or keep all parts belonging to a jig. When the creates have similar sizes they allow easy stacking:
