The Barn #2: Lights!

01-07-2014 08:52 PM by Dave Smith | 2 comments »

Well, we are now able to get into the barn and can now work on battling the spiders and years of accumulated crap. A run to Home Depot to get a Shop Vac and some light bulbs and we are in business. It looks like one of the 5 light fixtures has given up it’s ghost, so that’s a project that will be tackled this weekend. Here is a larger view from outside And a view from inside

Vintage Tool Rehab Projects #22: A Problem-child Stanley Transitional #26

02-09-2014 05:33 PM by Brad | 6 comments »

While meandering through an antique store, something toolish and vintage wooed me into a stall. It was a Stanley #26 transitional jack plane. Not that there’s anything remarkable about them. But what set this one apart was its just-came-off-the-assembly-line looks. Even the tote and knob were intact with but one chip to show for its long life. Here’s what I brought home, $20.00 the poorer for it. It had no checks. And the Stanley logo dates it c. 1909-1912. So it fits rig...

dw's Turning #2: Need some help from the Lathe guru's.

03-16-2014 03:20 PM by Don W | 50 comments »

I recently restored a Walker Turner lathe. So the next thing is to get beyond the basic turnings. So I need some advice, help and guidance if you would be so kind. First, I need to figure out what the threads are. I know its 1” x something. It’s less than an inch long, so if I measure 1/2” I get 7 threads, so I’ll assume its 14. --If that’s not right, somebody let me know. Searches show there is nothing with anything close to that thread size and...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1332: Creative Overload

06-04-2014 12:42 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Lately I have felt a bit unfocused. I am not worried about that really, as this seems to happen to me from time to time and usually passes after a bit. I don't particularly like the feeling though. It usually occurs when I have many different things going on at once in different directions and I tend to get 'stuck' along the way as to which way I want to proceed first. I used to worry about it a bit, but now I have come to recognize it as just being a 'creative overload' a...

Why buy it when you can make it! #7: Improv Fir Step Stool [Part 3] - SAS Regiment

07-21-2014 01:18 AM by paxorion | 1 comment »

After a brief hiatus thanks to work and social obligations (groomsman in a friend’s wedding), I finally had a chance to dive into the SAS regiment (sand, assemble, stain). This project is certainly becoming an interesting exercise in using up what I have lying around. Sanding: I sanded all the parts (except the top) down to 220 grit prior to the glue-up. It can get tricky sanding small parts (with a random orbit sander) when you don’t have a vise, but you’d be amazed wh...

Scenic Woodturning Courses

08-11-2014 11:17 AM by stefang | 4 comments »

Every year my local tool dealer puts on an 11 day cruise here in Norway which caters to woodturners. The cruise includes free turning courses held by internationally known American, English, Norwegian and other woodturners. A lot of tools including bandsaws, sanders, turning tools, etc. are taken with. The cruise starts in Stavanger and sails to Honningvåg/Norkapp (land of the midnight sun). It’s probably pretty expensive, but surely a lot of fun for those who can afford it. A great way...
