Health issues and Attitude adjustment #6: Having ologist-itis...

Last week truly sucked. I typically don’t like that expression, but in this case it sums it up nicely. In April, it will be two years since I started this medical misadventure. Before last week, my diagnosis was idiopathic small fiber neuropathy. In other words, you have nerve damage. We don’t know what caused it. It may or may not level off. Go home and take drugs, or surround yourself with white light, or eat kale, whatever works. In my case, my pain management has invo...

Ooh ooh ooh Mr. Carter!

While I am known in some circles as the Arnold Horshack of woodworking, I did pick up some great band saw tune-up tips at last week’s Woodworking Show here in Denver. I also upgraded my guides and fence…and so far I’m very pleased with the results!

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #8: Cut, Sand, Repeat. Cut, Sand, Repeat...

03-26-2013 02:46 PM by Ethan Harris | 4 comments »

Hello Readers! There is a glimmer of light in the progress department of my small business. The brightest spot being that orders keep coming in at a steady pace. The Ugly has reared its head however in the form of doing the same process, over, and over, and over again only to repeat it again and again… I find myself trying to stay ahead of the orders, trying to not think about the fact that in the course of three weeks I have made over a 1000 square 1.5×1.5×1.5 inch blocks&...

Roubo Workbench Build #3: Looking for advice on vices - Also, progress with the top

05-14-2013 12:53 AM by Willeh | 8 comments »

While i’ve been progressing quite well with the top, i’ve been fighting myself on vice options. Unfortunately, I need to figure out what kind of end vice i’m going to go with before I finish gluing up the top so I don’t limit my options. I’ve glued up the back half of the top so far, and I really need to figure out the end/tail vice before i really go any further. Ive been fighting back and forth between two options: 1. Using something like a face vice o...

Hewing and carving bowls and spoons class!

07-10-2013 12:58 PM by darkhollow | 0 comments »

At the end of Sept/beginning of Oct 2013 I will be teaching a one-week class at the John C. Campbell Folk School on the subject of Hewing and carving bowls and spoons! If you haven’t yet heard of the Folk School, it is the oldest school of craft in the country, having been founded in the 1930s. Located in Brasstown, NC, the campus is beautiful, with about 20 classes going on at any time ranging from woodworking, woodcarving, blacksmithing, pottery, metalworking, weaving, music, tradit...

The Siegley Collection #3: The #18 knuckle

10-02-2013 09:56 PM by Don W | 11 comments »

So I’ve read that the Jacob Siegley got his first plane patent in 1878. Most of m information comes from 2 sources. Patented Transitional and Metallic Planes in America by Roger Smith and Plane Makers of Wilkes-Barre Pennsylvania by John F. Rumpf. Siegley made his planes until 1901, when Stanley bought him out and continued making his planes. In 1903 he signed an extension to allow his name to be used in additional planes (not sure what that really means) but he also was paid by Stan...

Haven’t had much time in the shop lately, but I did get my bench finished finally and I painted here and there as part of my shop improvement campaign. I am not nearly done, but I am taking a little at a time. With Christmas around the corner I have get back to doing some projects. My ambition level is fairly low this year as I am planning to build a Chevalet and it’s all I can think about right now. Here are some before and after pics of what I’ve been up to this week. I...

Table Saw Fence

12-05-2013 07:49 PM by scvwood27 | 2 comments »

Just purchased a used Biesemeyer fence system and the it was not locking into position properly. I then saw a small piece of rectangular white plastic (approx 1 ” x 1.5”) had fallen of the fence from somewhere. The piece appears to be able to be glued back on. Does anybody know where this piece goes and if it is affecting the locking mechanism of the fence? Pictures would be great. Danny
