I fell in love with this sander at a woodworking show last Fall when I used it to build a Band Saw box. The oscillating action with the belt sander worked perfect for fine-tuning the shape of the box (a kidney shaped box). I look forward to building more boxes… and am once again indebted to my w...

Osage Orange picture frames #1: The wood has arrived

1892 days ago by ahock | 10 comments »

This is the first project that I’m working on since I’ve joined LJ’s and thought, “Hey, I’ll journal the whole thing on here and get some input from people…”. So that’s what I’m doing. I wanted to try my hand at Osage Orange, as I’ve seen some cool things done with it before and wanted a challenge, from what I hear it’s very hard and dense. I couldn’t find any locally, so I went to Bell Forest Products website and pick...

1797 days ago by Mark Mazzo | 1 comment »

I was reading a post at Doug Stowe”s blog, Wisdom of the Hands where he was discussing how the use of specific tools could “self identify” your work. I commented my thoughts to Doug and also posted them and a poll at my blog. Take a look to see my take on the subject and take the poll and leave a comment while you’re there! Thanks for reading!

Handplane Restoration #24: Stanley 112

1713 days ago by WayneC | 9 comments »

This was a craigslist item that showed up yesterday evening. I quickly arranged to head over to the sellers house and pick it up.

According to Patrick Leach, “this is one of the finest tools ever to have been unleashed on the public from New Britain, Connecticut.” It has been on my shopping list for a while. This one is in pretty good shape. It has some light rust and is missing i...
