Custom Buffet #1: The Plan

09-29-2013 03:46 AM by MT_Stringer | 0 comments »

What started as a leaking kitchen faucet has turned in to a kitchen remodel. However, I convinced my wife that before tearing up the kitchen, we should build a buffet in the dining room. If all goes well, then we will tackle the kitchen next year. We have been living in this house since July 1987. It has been paid for for several years and all of our kids are grown so it is just me and the missus. The cabinets are vintage 1983 oak but their time has come and gone. I don’t like the...

Workbench #8: Base Progress

03-05-2017 01:16 AM by Dan Wolfgang | 3 comments »

It’s been a month since I last shared an update here. I’ve been making lots of progress on the base, making legs and stretchers and fitting it all together. The tail vise has gotten a lot of use since I completed it! I’m really glad I put it in the top. Here I used the vise with a hand screw to hold the leg so I could cut the tenons. With the tenons in the rails cut and mortises chopped into the legs, I was able to see some real progress! I didn’t...

Exploits collecting "free" wood #3: Colors of the kill

10-24-2013 09:47 PM by Monte Pittman | 18 comments »

now that are slow was finally melted I can get back to hauling logs for the winter. Where I had been getting logs from is currently buried with snow. So I went shopping through the hills for trees I could get to. Found a very large patch that was very easy to access. It’s located near a scenic area Although I look for all kinds of trees, beetle kill pine is by far the most common one that I do cut down. Most people think that the only color of beetle kill is blue ...

Shop stuff #83: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 14 The pain continues

We don’t get far in this episode but we do a lot of work getting there. In reality, I could have left all this footage out and no one would be the wiser. It could have been a completely sterile build on video, with no challenges or mistakes, but that is not real life. View on YouTube

2017 PATINA Spring Tool Sale and Auction

03-14-2017 06:21 PM by EricTwice | 0 comments »

If you get a chance go. A friend finally convinced me this year. I dropped my Stanley 9 1/2 and broke it. I bought it in 95. it is English made. I was hoping to find another like it and have spare parts. No such luck. I settled for a 1950s era U.S. made one, new in box for which I paid 20$. I’m happy. I also picked up a 6” Millers Falls sliding square and a 5” Starret for very reasonable. Yes there are some pricey offerings, but you can also find some very reasonable p...

Workbench build #1: Part 1: The need for a new, cheap bench

03-20-2017 10:10 PM by RobNPHX | 0 comments »

It’s been about 6 months since I purchased a bench from a discount tool store, and I am in desperate need of something else. The bench is cheaply made, and even for having glued the joints prior to assembly, there is too much sway and movement for hand tool work. The included wooden vise is falling apart, and the wood is cracking. Yesterday, I started to build out a new bench, constructed of Douglas Fir 2×4’s. At less than $3 a board, I couldn’t beat the price. I w...

Is this Maple?

12-21-2013 06:32 PM by Jamie McDonald | 8 comments »

So I haver had this natural board for quite a while now. When I purchased it I was told that it was Maple. Immediately underneath the board in question is a table made out of curly maple. Both boards have only a clear finish on them. Does the top board look like maple or is it something else?
