Christmas router

12-27-2013 02:57 PM by CincyRW | 6 comments »

I hit it big for Christmas. My wife got me the Bosch 1617 router kit (fixed + plunge base) and a good quality bit assortment. I’m super happy and can’t wait to use this thing, although I have no projects in the que right now. So, I have a feeling that after this weekend all my scrap wood will have ogees, chamfers and roundovers. If anyone is in the market for scrap wood with random stuff routed into it, look no further. Why I have no projects pending is a bit of a tangent so...

Doll Baby Crib Project #5: Cold Wet Weather + Paint = Bad Idea

01-12-2014 12:59 PM by Dan Tindall | 0 comments »

I was reminded again this past week why it is better to have patience on these projects. The deadline is fast approaching for getting this project finished and in the mail to Texas. With that pressure, I decided that this past Friday would be a good day to try and get the first coat of paint on the crib. As most of the U.S is aware, we had a bad cold snap followed by wet and rainy weather here in the South. Not to be deterred, there was a brief respite in the weather Friday. Temps soared ...

Between the Stud Cabinets #1: Using That Wasted Shop Space

02-13-2014 03:20 PM by CoolToolShed | 2 comments »

Here is the first quick video I did of using space “Between the Studs” in my small shop to make storage space and not take up a lot of the shop footprint! If you have a small shop and storage is a problem, this may be a good solution for you! I made these out of shorts and leftovers from previous projects!

Saw Restorations #1: Spear & Jackson 10" Carcase Saw

03-02-2014 03:06 AM by grfrazee | 9 comments »

A while back I bought this saw either from ebay or an auction. Can’t really remember. Anyway, it was in kinda rough shape with a lot of rust. You can almost tell that it says “Spear & Jackson Sheffield” on the spine. This saw has brass split nuts. and a beech handle. I haven’t had the pleasure of unscrewing split nuts until now, so I had to improvise a split nut driver from a 1/2” spade bit. With the saw all apart, it was time to...

Click here to see the previous video and photos. Steven Gallagher took time to give me a tour of his mid-19th Century tool chest. I love old tools, so this was like Christmas for me! We also had a really great time talking about handle making. I was surprised to see that he uses the same method...

Recreating Rohlfs (and more) – A Woodworkers Pilgrimage

06-11-2014 12:00 AM by Woodbridge | 8 comments »

One of my woodworking objectives is to recreate a number of iconic works from little known Arts and Crafts era furniture maker Charles Rohlfs. Most woodworkers are familiar with Arts and Crafts makers such as Morris, Stickley and Greene. Their furniture has been reproduced by many woodworkers and is routinely featured in woodworking magazines. Charles Rohlfs has not received the same popular notoriety. Rohlfs was born in Brooklyn on 1853. He was trained as a designer and draftsman an...
