Well the IWF show was as great as always. Had a lot of fun there, meet some cool people. Talked a lot of shop with many. Ran into the WOOD WISPERER and his better half, any body know that guy? Walked about thirty miles I think (felt like it anyway). Let’s see I picked up some shaper knives, a few insert router bits. Got another Dynabrade orbital sander. Ordered Five 8’ and twelve 5’s of the new bessy k body clamps (not availible till November). Ordered a Osillating Belt ...

From my blog: ===========This is Part 3 of 3 of the session on Scrapers: History, Preparation and Use, with Christopher Schwarz. Part3 concludes the series on scrapers. To get some continuity from Part 2 into Part 3, I included the last 3 minutes from part 2 as the introduction to this episode. This way you can get back to speed quickly. In Part 3 Christopher Schwarz actually draws the burr on the scraper. This Part starts with some discussion by The Schwarz on drawing the burr, and ...
It is hard for me to believe that a year ago today I decided to join Lumberjocks. Little did I know how profound that decision would be for me as a woodworker. I would say up until last year that I considered myself a self taught woodworker with formal training in design, however, after being on Lumberjocks for a year I find it hard to continue to make that statement. Everywhere I look on this site I have been influenced as a designer and a woodworker seeing what is possible and realizing ...
This is the first green turn read more in my project “oak bowl” thanks
I had a very interesting day today….. I spent it at the local Woodcraft demoing (is that a word?) hand cut dovetails. After many questions and several hours speaking with quite a few customers and observers I discovered that there are a large number of us that hold a certain amount of fear with regards to hand work. Things like basic handsaw techniques, chopping & paring with a chisel, sharpening, etc…. A great number of these questions came in a flurry from one particular ...
It’s just about time to take the show on the road again. Next weekend (Feb. 27, 28 and Mar 1) I’ll be exhibiting and demonstrating at The Woodworking Shows Somerset, NJ. It should be a great time! Last year’s show was pretty heavily attended and I expect from the crowds I’ve seen at the other shows this year will be even better. So, come on out and I’ll show you how to cut some dovetails. If you attend the show, please stop by the booth and identify yourself. I...
My company gives out monetary awards for patents that we get filed… I got one last week, so I decided to make an addition to my plane family and add a Lee-Valley Bevel-Up Jointer (to the space lovingly reserved for it when I built my toolbox): I’ve had a #4 smoother for about a year, but have never managed to be very successful with it.. I’ve tried to use it to clean up boards out of my power planer, but always ended up simply mangling the board instead. This time,...
Well, we’re just waiting on the inspector and it will all be done. The guys showed up on Saturday morning and got straight to work. 2 1/2 hours later, they were done and I was several hundred dollars poorer. Haha. In all actuality, I’m glad I hired a pro to do this. I have a couple of brackets to add to some conduit before the inspector gets here and I should be good to go. Now, who wants to come over and help me run all the conduit for all the circuits after my inspect...
So I started with 8/4 zebra wood that I bought off my brother. He builds bass guitars for a living and had some left over wood. I resawed the wood down to about 5/8” on my craftsman 12”(given to me by my father in law) with a Woodslicer 3-4, 1/2” blade from highland woodworking… Amazing blade, if you have a bandsaw and need a resaw blade for it check them out because it cuts like a hot knife through butter compared to ANY other blade I’ve used yet. https://www.hi...
