Splinters of thought #7: How Do You Measure up?

10-30-2015 01:01 AM by bearkatwood | 5 comments »

Recently there have been articles discussing tape measure maintenance, selection and how to use them in the shop. My opinion is to use them at the cutoff table for large crosscuts with a radial arm or chop saw, and leave them there. There should not be a dedicated place in your woodworking tool cabinet for a tape measure. The closest I would come would be a fabric tape to measure curved work. I worked in construction for a while and used a tape for everything, I just don’t see their pla...

Stanley no. 1

05-04-2014 04:18 AM by skidooraceing | 15 comments »

I had found a hand plane at a garage sale and bought it for $5 without really knowing what kind of plane it was. It is a small plane around 6 inches long. The plane is missing the chip breaker and lever cap. When I got it home I took some rust off the blade it had the Stanley logo and a patent date of 1892. I looked up online about it and believe its a Stanley no. 1. Im wondering if anyone knows much about Stanley no. 1’s and what the price of a none complete no. 1 would be?

Peterbilt truck #16: Ornament

03-04-2015 12:23 PM by Dutchy | 3 comments »

Another small part to make. Very small. I started with glueing 3 pieces of wood together. After it was dryed it was cut in half. And sanding could start. Below you can see the process. Making it slant: Radius making: And again disc sanding work to do and make it smaller: And smaller: And smaller: And then it was glued on the truck and “clamped” with Duct tape: This ornament is very small and hard to see on the truck: And for that reason another p...

"we should all be equal.

02-10-2007 06:52 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 15 comments »

I just made this comment on another blog, but I think the other blog has been all wrung out, so I’m resubmitting it here. I’m not sure if everyone realizes, but each member of this forum has friends, or family that frequent this site. So maybe he isn’t contributing with talk, but he’s contributing a multitude of viewers from the outside.I think the main reason I joined this site was to show projects I’ve done over my years of woodworking, & being that I don’t sell things, I’m abl...

Barnsley Reproduction Build #3: Laying out Chip Carving

11-05-2014 09:32 PM by stevo_wis | 0 comments »

My next task is to chip carve the bevels on the four legs. The diamonds are 1 1/64 across the diagonals. The 1/64 was needed to ensure that the top and the bottom were a half diamond. Since the carved area is 25 3/8 long, by carving 25 diamonds each a little over 1” I avoided a partial diamond. I printed the pattern and glued the paper on to the legs and plan on just carving through. Since my printer can only print up to 11 inches, each pattern was made of three pieces. I enlist...

Router Table & Unit #7: Drawers are almost done

11-07-2014 09:42 PM by edwood1975 | 0 comments »

! Without question the most singly difficult and frustrating part of this project was everything to do with the drawers…But in the end I’m mostly happy.. I have to router the drawer fronts to add some style and then I have to add some kind of knob or something to actually open them….. I have 2 bit drawers on the top right and top left and regular drawers are in the bottom…! I just need to add drawer knobs…
