My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #9: The Dream, the Plan, the Project

05-11-2013 06:02 PM by Ethan Harris | 4 comments »

Hello Readers, Wow its been a really long time since I have blogged anything… Spud has kept me really busy. But today I think I have something to share that I have been realizing is the next step for me and subsequently Spud. I have come to the conclusion that I love woodworking, I love making things myself and seeing the satisfaction that people have with my product. A few weeks ago I decided that I would begin saving money from my business to open a brick and mortar storefront. ...

Three Rusty Planes #2: 3 rusty planes

06-18-2013 06:11 AM by Makarov | 5 comments »

This weekend I went to a garage sale, I picked up three planes the Stanleys were $1 each and the craftsman rabbit plane was $5. I left probably 10 planes on the table but didn’t have money with me and it was so dark I could not see the markings on the planes. I live on a peninsula with the Pacific ocean on one side and a bay on the other, things rust here. I think I can clean these up, the only fear is that the blades are too rusty. My Grandfather was a finish carpenter, M...

handtool workbench #4: a bench to build a bench

07-08-2013 03:06 AM by Tugboater78 | 1 comment »

just wanted to put something up, not much progress… As you may notice most of my work thus far is being down outside. The last 2-3 days i have done nothing cause here in northern Kentucky all it has done is rain, almost nonstop. ?My yard turned into a swamp, and though the rain seemed to cool things down a bit, the humidity went to 100% and the temps stayed in the high 80s. Terrible weather to work in, i know this cause these are the conditions i work in at my job, and i refuse to su...

I couldn’t wait till tomorrow to put the top together. This did not go without it’s fair share of oh sh#t moments one of which almost had me starting the whole thing over almost.. But I’m getting ahead of myself.. I had planned to use pegs instead of bolts. I am trying to keep the number of mechanical fasteners to a minimum on this so lets have a go at it.. Marked out the location of the peg holes and drilled just the end caps.. Then fitted them and marked th...

Machine mods, oddities, and fix-ups #12: Cantilever roof support for outdoor machine

08-25-2013 10:20 PM by Loren | 0 comments »

I welded up these cantilever supports and bolted them tothe back of my stroke sander. The sander is about 11’long. I’ll put some corrugated roofing across thereto keep the rain and dirt mostly off the machines. It doesn’t snow in my climate so the almost flat pitchis okay. The machine in front of the stroke sander is an edge banding press. I made the cantilever arms long enough to support roofing for both.

The idea being this is clamped on the ...

Seating Bench Under Construction #1: Lumber Selection

01-25-2014 04:49 AM by Karson | 5 comments »

Our woodworking club The Mason Dixon Woodworkers are setting up a workshop for the members to make a bench. When the workshop committee met we were looking for a project that could be completed early in the year, and one that could get completed in one day. The Fine Woodworking issue Possibly issue 1 for 2014 had on the back cover a picture of a few different benches. They didn’t have any plans, but one of the committee members said that he’d make a demonstration bench to sh...
