So my weekend is looking pretty full… But assuming I get even half of it done, I will have accomplished a lot… My pile of honey do’s that are scheduled for this weekend are… #1. Tune up on the Saturn. Meaning… 1a. Change spark plugs, 1b. Change spark plug wires, 1c. de-gunk the Mass Air Flow sensor. 1d. Clean and oil the K&N air filter. It will take at least a day for this to dry, so I will drop in a temporary filter just to be able to use...
Since last time, I finished fitting all the slats and the center panel: I started out by fitting the tenons in the bottom rail. Then I marked at the top how long and at what angle the top tenons should be. After much thought and planning, I finally was able to glue the whole thing up. Here’s the result! What do you think?!? There’s still a lot to do, but it’s coming along nicely! Alan
Phase 1 is complete. The bench is mostly flat, and is mostly level. I could talk about the various parts of the top (and the bench in general) that aren’t great, but then I think, “If I was reading the blog of some struggling woodworker who rarely gets shop time and builds a Roubo/Moxon workbench and then complains about the various imperfections of what is essentially just a ginormous wooden tool, I’d yell at him to shut up and be content and start making stuff!” S...

I picked up this beauty for only $75 off Craigslist this weekend. Everything seems to be in good shape except for nicks on the blades about 4” out. It’s missing the blade guard for when you move the fence in, but other than that has everything else, as far as I can see. The power switch is attached with duct tape, but I will remedy that as well. Now for the tool p0rn!

Then it all began…Miguel gomez-Ibanez gave a beautiful speech. Describing how this was the happiest day of our lives as it was his when he was in our spot. It was a treat being in his preasence never mind getting ec...
I have worked on a tiny bench for way too long now. My current bench is apprx. 22” x 28”, has one vise that is too small with a chop that is too big, and it the most frustrating piece of equipment in my shop, bar none. It’s so small that I knock everything off of it while working, I can’t handplane long boards on it, the list of this bench’s shortcomings is just endless. With one exception, it is very sturdy and it doesn’t rack much at all or move while pla...
Hi Jocks! This is a video of making a drawer pull for a project I am working on. I turned the pull from some beech and ebony. This is the kind of project that I thought that I needed a lathe for. I have been bitten by the turning bug and that is all that I seem to want to do lately… turn! This is such a small part of the overall project but it sure was a fun highlight in making it. I hope that you enjoy watching!
