Wood Gloat, Claro Walnut, Central California

01-13-2010 06:05 AM by rustfever | 10 comments »

I was recently gifted 4 Claro Walnut logs. When i went to pick them up, I found there were 7, not four. They were from 24” D to 40”D. All were from 5’-6” to 7’6” L. Yesterday I took them to the sawyer. 3 hours later I have some of the most beautiful slabs. About 40% were cut into 4/4 flitches. Another 40% were cut into 5/4 flitches. The remainder were specifically cut for turning. 15 pieces for turning, 8/4, 10/4, 12/4, 16/4, 20/4 one at 24/4. I...

Alaska Jim's Comments of the Day #10: Emergency router purchase - Bosch 1617 EVSPK - first impressions, and a surprise!

01-24-2010 04:36 AM by Jim Bertelson | 25 comments »

Well today started out OK. Down to the shop, after Sherie got up a little late, no shop work when she is sleeping…right above the shop. Finally decided that plywood was out of the question for my Super Sled due to poor quality materials…....I know…I will find a local cabinet supply to get me Baltic birch. But I reviewed the stresses etc, and with some thought and additions, 3/4 MDF will work, I am certain. So while trying to lift up a 4’x 8’ sheet of the stuff...

Alaska Jim's Comments of the Day #15: Valentine's Day Rescue.........a solution from the man-cave

02-15-2010 05:04 PM by Jim Bertelson | 22 comments »

OK, here is a funny on me. My wife was at a quilting retreat over the weekend, and got home yesterday. She gets home, fortunately (-: without a valentine for me, fortunate cause I didn’t have one for her. Most often, I make them complete with poetry on the computer, a 2 to 4 hr project. Working this weekend, so kinda distracted. Out doing a csection this morning, meaning 0400hrs, it is 0600hrs now. (and by the way gals, I don’t know why you call this a man’s world, t...

tragedies #12: fixing my dryer's tensioner

03-26-2010 10:30 AM by Gary Fixler | 12 comments »

I mentioned my broken dryer in my last post. It’s not woodworking, but it’s ‘making,’ and I thought it might be of mild interest here. So a few months ago I heard a loud bang while doing laundry and soon realized the dryer was no longer spinning. The motor was running, but the belt had popped. Not knowing how to access anything, I must have spent an hour fighting it away from the wall and digging through internals, unscrewing panel after panel, hitting dead ends, be...

The Veritas arrives!

04-08-2010 05:53 AM by Rick Boyett | 4 comments »

Today I opened my mailbox and my eyes were alighted with excitement. My “new to me” Veritas low angle block plane had just arrived. My late night browsing of the Woodnet Swap and Sell forum had really paid off. I’ll let you know how much I paid in the review. Boy ain’t she pretty. :) Just a few small specks of rust on the sole, but no pitting. I’ll get her tuned up this weekend and put her through her paces. However, just inspecting the individual parts...

Building a Credenza #4: Completed Dovetail Joinery

05-18-2010 08:13 PM by Blake | 20 comments »

This is where I left off last time: Chopping the tails I cut most of the waste out with a coping saw and then clamped down the tail board to my bench to chop out the rest: First it is necessary to test the sharpness of your chisels… yep they are sharp. (I accidentally grazed my chisel when I reached across my bench for a pencil) After chopping the tails: The two sides of my case: Transferring the tails to the pins I had a little bit of a dilemma ...
