This will be my first blog, I think a blog must be a thought or an acknowledgement, anyway this is my blog to all of you, about 2 weeks ago I posted a request for an inlay medallion that I wanted to use for a project I am currently working on, all I wanted was some direction as to where I could purchase one, then along came Paul another Lumberjock, and without any hesitation he offered to make me what I needed, I was blown away and very grateful, aside from that Paul opened up my eyes in an ...
First off. Wow, sorry it took so long to get this next step on the blog. Cold weather and life have kept me away from the shop more than usual since my last post. Meanwhile my faithful reader(s?) has been waiting for a conclusion to this project. Fear not. The conclusion follows. Interestingly enough, the last issue of the AAW magazine hosted an article specifically to turning finials. There are also several YouTube videos that have great detail about turning finials also. Hopefully...
Sharpening: gives me headaches just thinking about it! Not because it is difficult! It is NOT! but it is the prime example of a place where every effort to “simplify” or make it easier has resulted in More confusion and More difficulty! it started at least 150 years ago with the first Victorian era quick and easy sharpening jigs and guides. and has gone rapidly downhill. Sharpening, you should do it once a day for every tool you used that day. at the end of the day put t...
It’s been four weeks since I moved my shop tools over to the new place. Other, last minute panic, items got deposited in the garage too. We finally moved in about a week ago. Today I started to re-build my shop and on entering the garage this is what I found Under there (somewhere) is my table saw, workbench and router table! The rest of the place wasn’t much better Still I cleared some of the excess away and found the bench In three parts; frame, top and ...
This is a quick shelf/storage rack I made using pocket holes. Easy, cheap and fast. http://youtu.be/6YYkFniu9RU?list=UUcU4UqLCEkn2ZqJk4pyqR0A
After reading the book New traditional woodworkerI wanted to make a tool caddy.Wondering if you guys have any input on my little project? After doing some work around the bench I notice that tools start to become a mess,And was worried that tool might get damage. This is what I seen to grab all the time so far.I’m using a baltic birch ply for the base 3/4 thick And using red oak for sides.So I tried to mock it up by laying tools down. And here I made some kind of handle using 1...
So quite awhile back I was blessed with a Walker Turner 14” bandsaw for just $100 bucks, which I lauded as my way to finally resaw all these cool boards I’ve ammassed- and to this day I still cant get the blade to stay on. Harumph! So I finally got fed up and said to myself, how hard can it be to resaw by hand!? Since I got my Disston D-7 5 1/2 ppi rip saw, I haven’t even tried! My previous attempts were so awful, that I was discouraged… I started with a test p...
“Attempting to play ‘Rock, Paper, Scissors’ by one’s self is a waste of time.” -handsawgeek I have a fascination for unique and unusual tools. This one certainly fits the bill, even though it’s not a woodworking tool. It was one of the items included in that oft-talked about box of tools inherited from grandfather. On one end – a normal needle-nose plier… On the other – a honking long handle! I’m totally not sure for what particular application this too...
