A progress update. I haven’t been in the shop for a few weeks due to illness. Now I’m ok and back at it. As you might remember, I had been struggling with the bindings. these are willow branches that are split, planed down and joined with a specially cut joint (no glue or fasteners). Well, I’m glad to report after working my way through about 10 of these and having failed 9 times, I finally learned it! I can now say that I can properly split branches and get 2 bands fr...

Fulton 18" Lathe Chisle Handle

06-07-2011 03:47 PM by WoodArtbyJR | 2 comments »

This is on special at Peachtree Woodworking right now for 50% off ($42.59, reg $84.99). have one of these and or has anyone used them? I’m thinking of buying the Ci1 & Ci0, in the un-handled version, (based on reviews here at LJ) and thought these handles might be a step UP? I guess the real question is, a handle is a handle, right? OR, once you buy a handle (or 2) then you can purchase future chisles in the un-handled version an...

Handy tip for protecting knife tip...gouges and chisels too

07-07-2011 07:29 AM by darkhollow | 5 comments »

the best thing I have found for storing small knives, gouges and chisels in is synthetic wine corks. They do not wear out nearly as fast as regular corks, are non-corosive and not very absorbent, and hold tightly any tool stabbed into them, protecting knife and finger tips. They are also becoming more and more common, and being non-biodegradable or -recyclable, are just adding to land-fills. I’m trying to find other uses for these as well.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #434: If the Bird Gets Up Early Enough, Does It Catch Two (or even Three) Worms?

08-17-2011 11:57 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I woke up early today and was debating whether or not to try to get back to sleep. It would have been easy to do so, but there were too many things on my mind and after a couple of minutes of trying to feel sleepy again, I just gave up and got my day started. I really don’t mind though, as I could use the extra couple of hours to get a handle on things for the day. I still have emails to catch up on from the weekend. The combination of slacking off and going to a couple of dinners ...

TV Stand #6: Finally gluing up the top

09-02-2011 03:19 AM by Angela | 1 comment »

I last left off where my boards for the top where seriously warped. I also was waiting for my new jointer. I received my new Powermatic Jointer and I love it. I wish I knew how to use it better but it will come in time. Jointing ProblemOne question I wondered about it when I tried to flatten a board. I jointed just one side of the board until it was flat. The only problem was to get the board flat the jointer removed so much wood that I wasn’t able to use the board because it became to...

Workshop Improvements #3: Lathe Sharpening/Storage Center

09-17-2011 08:45 PM by ChrisCrafts | 3 comments »

I have a desire for more storage and organization around my lathe. My current solution is to use every possible vertical surface for all my lathe related accessories. As you might imagine this is, well, not the best system. Mainly because it clutters up my shop and I spend my time trying to figure out what I did with this or that item. I have looked at some of the commercially available items and they are just too costly. So here is the design I think I am going to go with. I made a few di...
