My First Workbench #7: Day 7: Progress and lots of it!

08-19-2012 12:22 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Got a lot done today. My wonderful wife got up with the kids this morning to allow me to get down early to the garage and continue work on the workbench. My first task was to rip the 2×4s for the top by about 1/2” to make nice flat edges, which will (in theory) make a nice smooth, sharp edged top. (Just a note to my fellow Lumberjocks—-this is just copied from my wordpress blog which is riddled with pictures which took me a long time to edit and post…so since I hav...

Making a Jack Plane Tote

09-03-2012 07:55 PM by nobuckle | 4 comments »

Okay, this is yet another update on the James Kellogg Jack Plane restoration. This time I’m making the tote. One of my concerns is that the tote may break if any side pressure is applied. I’m kicking around the idea of adding a drilling a hole through the handle and reinforcing it with a dowel. What do you think? Ayway, here is what I have so far; The pattern The rough shape Fitted to the plane Just a closer look Thanks for looking.

And then suddenly, walnut!

11-28-2012 12:53 AM by BTimmons | 9 comments »

What oh what am I supposed to make out of this? My dad in law was putting a ton of things in storage and doing some purging as well. He wasn’t sure what to do with this 50 year old walnut slab bench. It’s pretty basic, not made by some big name so it’s not that valuable to begin with. And the surface is all dinged up and scratched, and three of the four turned legs have come off. So it would need to be repaired and refinished if he were to sell it. He and I were thinking ...

Finally! My retired school teacher friend/electrician/carpenter/plumber/drywall finisher/general all-around great guy, finished wiring my shop with 220 and connected my previously mentioned band saw, jointer, planer, and sanders. I won’t bore anyone with the details as to why it has taken so long to make these machines come to life, (he’s busy and I’m cheap), but I think I had a religious experience with I flipped switches and let them run. Did I say run? No, they each r...

The Old Woodworker

01-01-2013 07:54 PM by WoodGoddess | 3 comments »

I am constantly amazed at the beauty I find here on Lumberjocks. It’s here that generations will share the same “cherish” boxes, prepare meals on the same butcher block island, and rock grandchildren to sleep in the same chair created by our minds and hands. Indeed, woodworking is as much as a pastime as it is a journey. Each piece created here will likely last for generations and that’s the true beauty and meaning of woodworking…in my opinion. ...
