Moving on

01-07-2014 08:18 PM by RHaynes | 5 comments »

I knew if I ever wanted to move on from being an amateur carpenter and handy man to a “woodworker,” I needed to tackle some more complicated joinery and make some furniture. Since my activities had all but taken over the garage, there wasn’t much room for my wife and daughter to put on/take off shoes any more. I had some scrap 2×4s and plywood laying around from other projects and had been looking at pictures of mudroom-style benches and storage for a while. The resu...

The Coolidge Chronicles #24: Part 8 of 8 - 1952 Delta Multiplex 40-B 12"-14" Radial Arm Saw Rebuild

01-24-2014 07:04 AM by darthford | 3 comments »

Finally all the parts are back together, I just have to finish the wiring, build a table for it and dial in everything square. PHEW!!! A mix of polished aluminum and black enamel. I polished the aluminum end caps for the carriage rack but the casting was porous and honestly they look better painted black imo. I did polish a few aluminum pieces though, I didn’t want it to look too bling and I’m satisfied. How’s this for a before and after… I installed m...

Workshop #24: ShopQuest 2014- Wood Rack Revisited

02-09-2014 04:45 PM by clieb91 | 5 comments »

So as I mentioned in my earlier blogs for this year’s ShopQuest I wanted to get rid of my wood rack. I decided that was going to take a major effort and instead to do a little better allocation of space on it and see how it works this year. I spent a weekend cleaning it up and finding space for some of the wood and getting rid of some of it as well. I am not a fan of throwing out wood but some of it just was not going to be useful at all. I narrowed it down a little further and used pie...

Elvenwwod Designs #3: The middle of the middle?

02-25-2014 10:22 AM by drpdrp | 0 comments »

Okay things are coming together nicely in terms of improved workflow. Here is an updated layout: A lot of the wood storage was from a bunch of pallets I reclaimed and didn’t know what to do with. I am burning my way through that stuff and was able to tighten it up a bit. Then I shuffled the 4 drawer file cabinet and that 20×42 work bench. I can now access everything and there is a lot of room to move around. In the long term I ...

Old Sargent Planes #6: Sargent #409 with a Brass name plate.

03-16-2014 03:03 PM by Don W | 6 comments »

I saw a posting on Ebay that looked like this: Besides the upside down lever cap, something looked different. I thought the logo looked brass, so I contacted the seller. These Sargent planes with brass inserts were produced in limited runs sometime between 1927 and 1939. I put a max bid and won it for the exact max amount. How lucky is that? This is the first time I’ve seen one on eBay, and there were 3 at the same time, all different sellers. Talk about coincidence. A #407 had a...

Here was a recent project that I completed. It’s a woodpecker feeder. It’s very similar to the ones you can find in the big box stores. It makes a great gift, and can be done in just a couple hours. As always you can check out my website at: to see more projects, videos, and a list of Free Project Plans    Youtube Link:

thoughts on cutting boards

05-12-2014 10:38 PM by Texcaster | 3 comments »

Before coming to LJ I had no idea of the work being done with cutting boards. If I lived closer to the source, I would have a small collection to hang on the wall. Some of mine. Two users and a benchtop I’m antiquing. 32mm bamboo ply. I won’t cut on this because of the glue content. Bass neck off-cuts. I didn’t continue the light / dark edging, it has problems. It’s now a drinks tray. More bass neck foolery T...
