The Craftsman's Path #12: The joy of a well tuned hand plane

10-17-2007 05:50 PM by Mark Mazzo | 9 comments »

I spent some time in the shop this past weekend working on a couple of final tasks for a new table before starting on the finishing. I had a choice on how to do the work and opted for a simple block plane. If you’ve done work with well-tuned hand tools, then you know how my experience was…either way, you can read about it here.

What To Do With This Board? #1: What To Do With This Board?

05-08-2015 12:07 AM by Mean_Dean | 7 comments »

Hey Guys, My neighbor very generously gave me this board: It is Luan mahogany, and is: 3/4” x 3 1/2” x 48” (T x W x L) So, what project should I do with it? Based on your suggestions, I’ll then build the project, and blog the build. Thanks in advance, and I’m looking forward to it!

01-24-2010 06:11 PM by JSN | 8 comments »

Hi folks I’m totally new to this site and still not quite sure where to posts news. This one is about my future outfeed table and I’ve only now finished the sketchup for it. Still have small problem with it and I’m definitely curious about your comments beore I go further. As I explained in my intro, I’m in the process of setting up my shop and it’ll be very close to what’s shown in a FineWoodworking article by Matthew Teague titled : “Smart sho...

Just for Fun... #28: Sawdust Update...

08-10-2010 01:30 PM by littlecope | 13 comments »

I went up to the Folk’s house once again last week to mow the lawn… but it didn’t need it. We’ve had very little rain and are in the “Dog Days” of summer when the grass slows down anyway…So, to pass the time, I combed through the wood stashes that are there… It seems I’ve inherited a pretty large supply of woods (at least for me!).Aside from the pallet full of cribbing blocks, there are various other piles, like this one which is mostly Oa...

making something with your own two hands.{ O. B. Beehive}

03-13-2011 10:09 PM by Dandog | 3 comments »

The satisfaction that I received when she saw the beehive was way beyond monetary. I was paid a fair price. But watching her face light up, knowing all the thought I put into it was awesome. It was a great complement she asked if she could put me on her website. Ya free advertising and now I have honey coming out of my ears. She was so stoked she said any time I wanted honey she would bring it by.If you have the opportunity to work with local businesses in your area I highly recommend it. Esp...

From wood butchery to wood workery #3: Getting closer without doing as much - that measure twice cut once stuff works!

04-25-2010 03:55 PM by Woodbutchery | 0 comments »

So I’m on to the next project for my wife, a set of benches to fit around one nook of the back patio. After some discussion we settled on three benches, two approx. 5 foot and one 7 foot (Hurricanes here in Houston, when we get ‘em we turn the benches over so they present a low profile behind the brick wall). I set up the design on Sketchup, then started the build. A few things to note: First, I replaced my old cross-cut sled with a new version. It’s simpler, sits...

Anyone having the same problem with **&@@! Jet?

04-10-2014 02:39 PM by eldercop | 10 comments »

Lost the arbor nut on my JWTS10 table saw but had no idea it might require a new saw to replace it. Ordered the replacement nut from Jet, according to part number and diagram, waited the week plus, it arrives and doesn’t fit. I came a little unglued, being work stoppage on a much wanted project. Customer service transfers me to tech support where the conversation goes like this: Me The arbor nut you sent doesn’t fit. Tech Suport Guy I’m not surprised. M Huh? TSG Yup. W...

My shingle is hung.

04-10-2012 11:33 PM by RussellAP | 10 comments »

I ordered some business cards today advertising my business. I know it will hard in this economy, but you just have to start somewhere. Wish me luck. I ordered 500 cards printed front and back. 3 tee-shirts, some fridge magnets, and a stamp so I could stamp the chairs with my name and phone number. I’ve removed the phone number for posting.

Custom Buffet #6: Drawer Construction

11-05-2013 01:59 AM by MT_Stringer | 2 comments »

It has been a struggle, but I finally managed to get the drawers built. I made drawer stock by gluing up discounted (50% off) lumber purchased at the lumber yard. They sell “shorts” – boards that are less than 48 inches in length in various widths. I made the drawers out of poplar with the exception of the pull out tray. It is maple. With the boards glued up, I then planed them to just over 5/8 inch. Then I switched to the drum sander and sanded them to 5/8 inch th...
