Ok we have the calculations and a small bit of input from others here and we are grateful to those that are following this build . I drove to Sacramento and got to speek with Rob Cosman during the time we spent yesterday in his 2 seminars on on hand cut dovetails and the other on hand plane restoration i learned some tricks he uses on planes but it mostly told me that i was doing a good job already and strengthened my point of view that I should be including a nes ibc cosman set with reach re...

Paralysis by Analysis

02-29-2012 09:42 PM by TuckerFan | 6 comments »

I need advice, (and lots of it). Only in the last 9-10 months have I quit borrowing good tools from friends and buying cheap tools at…, well, that one store. I truly can not find enough time in my wood shop. I have only now been able to purchase some better quality tools and would like to move up the food chain to machinery, although I still need years of practice with hand tools and power tools. Here is what I would like to do: I am interested in buying a bandsaw, (probably 14”-possibly a 16...

Hello everyone. I went to a local cabinet shop in city. They moved to our area 3 years ago. I had a very good visit with the owner of the shop. He was about 45’sh years old. As we talked I mentioned I have worked at this profession for many years…..I have no journeyman papers ! He looked back at me open eyed “Neither do I or my partner.”They both ran a framing business in large city and got tired of all the hassles of getting bigger. They were not journ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #676: A Duck Out of Water

04-19-2012 12:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I must admit that I am not always comfortable with change. Even if it is for the better, there is that accompanying feeling of uneasiness that things are different than what we are used to. As I get older, I find this to be even more true. It’s as if I don’t want to have to think about any more than I need to some days and when things are different, it pulls from my ‘think bank’ and takes my attention. But I also understand that change is necessary. Many times w...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #754: New Free Pattern Posted

07-06-2012 10:35 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

After a crazy week of holidays, it’s hard to believe it is Friday already. Between Canada Day here and Independence Day in the states, the week certainly seems to have gone by quickly. Fortunately for us here in Nova Scotia, we haven’t had to experience the searing heat that many of my friends and family have endured. While it has been a bit warm and muggy, it is nothing like what others are going through and for that I am thankful. I spent yesterday writing the instructions...

Was this my finest woodworking hour? (warning - cute cat video)

08-18-2012 05:43 PM by KnickKnack | 8 comments »

About a year and a half ago we acquired a couple of cats from some people returning to England from Portugal. Great chaps they are – Ginger and Blackie – at the time they were about 8.Having read that cats like to play, I went out and made a fluffy swingy toy for them… It’s a piece of chestnut fence post stuck into a hoe-like thing, with an ash cross piece, and a piece of beech to keep the “handle” in place. I know – don’t mix chestnut an...

Tool Chest Refurb #7: Chest needs a lid, and now it has one...

Not going to clench cut nails for hinge install because my cut nails are truly vintage and will break rather than bend. Because of the thickness of the lid skirt, two shorter screws are needed at the base of the three-hole hinge, with one long wood screw good for the top in that it goes through the skirt and into the panel of the lid. Chose the hardware from the parts drawer, and moved out. Clamped the hinge tight, tapped starter holes and drove the screws home. The next pic...
