Been on Vacation for the past week and now back to work! What’s happening in the shop March 13, 2010. Building McKee’s White Oak Murphy bed. We should be able to stain Glover’s waterbed.

Got some Birthday money burning my hands

03-25-2010 04:02 AM by Rustic | 10 comments »

Well, I got some money for my birthday and it is starting to burn my hands. It has already burned my pockets LOL. I am planning on updating my drill press. The old one popped a spring last week. I had a tool shop bench top drill press from Menard’s. It was a great runner, but I am going to upgrade to a tradesman 10 inch drill press. As I can afford a tradesman and not the major brands. I am also going to get a card scraper holder from Woodcraft for 10 bucks. Will post picks and a rev...

Handplanes #2: Stanley No. 5 restoration

04-21-2010 06:51 PM by Newfounlandwood | 4 comments »

I just finished fettling my No. 5 Stanley. I don’t know if it’s a restoration as such….not much done in the way of looks. The plane is a WWII Stanley, japanning is 90%, no major damage to the tote or knob. She was very blunt and had a tendency to chatter alot. Here she is: First off I flattened the bottom using grits 80, 120, and 220 which were glued to a piece of bullet proof plexiglass I brought home from work with some 3M Super 77. The sole was quite out of wack, howev...

Don't you have to restart before you refinish? #1: Page 1 - The Restart, again.

06-14-2010 01:23 PM by Berg | 1 comment »

I’ve done this before. I have been in limbo for almost a year. Project limbo, shop limbo, life limbo. I have discovered turning during that time so all is not lost but working out of a 6×10 trailer is barely bearable. Still, limbo. Things are changing. My wife lost her job this winter, outsourced by three people whose names we cannot pronounce, which has forced us to reevaluate our situation. I am still gainfully employed. She gets to have all the fun. All this sounds like wh...

Chairmaking at the Appalachian Center for Craft #3: Day 3

07-14-2010 03:52 AM by doorslammer | 1 comment »

This morning we started by gluing up a bent lamination that will become our chair backs. What a mess! It’s funny how well yellow glue acts as a lubricant until it dries. All those layers really wanted to squirt loose until the clamping pressure was equal. After that it was more work on roughing out the front legs and front rail and cutting all the mortises using the Festool Domino. The remainder of the day I spent cutting the decorative curves out of all the rail pi...

Old Knowledge

Good evening LJ’s has been a somewhat good week in my shop with the newly acquired Delta Mortiser that arrived on Monday morning :) ( Kinda hard to believe I had this a week already :-P) It blended in with the rest of my tools perfect :) Early this week I was thumbing through an old Delta-gram book and came upon a article on shop layout and said this looked kinda familiar after looking at another book Do-it-yourself manual from the 70’s I realized they were almost the same!! only...

Meeting PurpLev

08-23-2010 05:05 AM by Mark Colan | 4 comments »

The other day I asked about the best way to make cauls to glue up two facing panels of MDF. PurpLev (on this board) lives about 3 miles from me, and invited me over, for a lesson in planes (which I thought I needed to make cauls), a discussion of milling tools, and discussing ways to make cauls. I’ve decided the safest way is by way of a sled with clamps to cut on an angle. The only reason I know PurpLev is because he commented on my posts, and when I checked him out, I saw that he...
