The Workbench #3: The Hybrid

01-30-2008 12:55 PM by Tomcat1066 | 6 comments »

This morning I awoke to the meows of a hungry cat. This is fairly typical. She knows that I get up at 5:00 AM during the week, so she makes sure I don’t oversleep. This is usually a good thing, except she does the same thing on weekends. Anyways, I digress. After feeding the cat, I pop over to Chris Schwarz's blog on the Woodworking magazine site. It usually has all sorts of interesting bits of information. Today, he posted a workbench built by one of his readers. He had been ...

The Shows #10: a blemish in the ending

02-04-2013 01:41 PM by Monte Pittman | 16 comments »

I went to pick up the items I had on display at the other building. It seems someone picked them up for me! Unfortunately no one knows who or where. .Got a lot of deer-in-the-headlights looks when I asked the staff there. Of course my insurance only covers me if someone sues me, not against theft. So today I get to go talk to bosses and see if they can do anything It was the coffee table and end tables I posted recently. I assumed that the area was watched and was safe. Once again assuming...

Oahu Guitar Restoration #1: Introduction

02-20-2017 10:52 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 3 comments »

Video is here: My day job is as a stringed instrument repair “tech” (I don’t really like that word, I just refer to it as fine woodworking) and I like to continue my work at home. This guitar is something that my wife bought for me as a christmas gift last year for a little bit. I was thrilled since it had had no previous “pro” repair jobs done to it which means that my job is still going to be challenging but it will be MUCH ea...

Slab Table #1: Slab 1

08-20-2013 12:58 AM by HickoryHill | 0 comments »

The sister company to where I work is an arborist service, tree removals (sometimes), pruning, caring, fertilizing, risk management, etc. So I tend to get one of the first cracks at stuff that comes in. I was out looking at other logs they had brought in and noticed this guy sitting there. Fortunately it has just rained or else I would of missed it. The cross cut of the tree is what caught my eye. From a Maple tree that was starting to decay. Along the outer edge is some spalting too. ...

Questions on Jointing

07-08-2008 04:50 AM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 9 comments »

YES!! I won both eBay auctions for the Stanley No. 7 and No. 8 jointer planes. Here are the photos of these bad boys! Stanley No. 7 seller alleges that this plane was produced between 1885 and 1888 and has a leveler that was only made for a short period of time. We will see. I don’t collect planes, so I didn’t buy this on to set on a shelf and look at. I’m going to sharpen it and put it to work. Stanley No. 8 with a corrugated sole plate. Sorry for the funky cr...

Roubo-ish Workbench Build #13: March of the Dogholes....

12-07-2015 04:54 AM by BikerDad | 2 comments »

So, I’m closing in on the finish line. Since my last blog entry, I’ve made the mortises in the top for the legs, and lo yea verily, it took just a couple swipes with my new LN Rabbet Block plane to get the beastly top segments to drop right on the tenons. After that, I took a break over Thanksgiving and didn’t get back to working on the bench until this weekend. So this weekend, my first task was to cut to the slabs to final length. This simply wasn’t going to ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #791: Planning

08-16-2012 11:10 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday was a busy day, but from the outside looking in, it may have seemed that I accomplished little. There were many things going on and errands to run and I spent the bulk of the afternoon and evening doing things away from the house and planning on the next projects. Planning is an odd thing. While I believe it is the backbone of most of my projects, it is something that no one can see, touch or feel. Yet it is there. And without it the entire structure of the project would be ...

I Rise to the Challenge ... sort of

04-11-2008 03:48 PM by Hibernicvs | 4 comments »

Okay, here’s my best shot. I tried to use “sketch up,” but I figured that, combined with tax time (I’m a CPA) the frustration was too much. I hand-drew my idea from a sketch I made during singing practice a few weeks ago, while listening to the Basses and Baritones (or, if you want an inside joke, the Third and Fourth Tenors) screw up their parts while the director tore out what little hair he has left. Of course, I did this while watching some weird Sherlock Holmes...

Baileigh table saw #2: Baileigh Table Saw Assembly

04-23-2013 01:39 AM by shelly_b | 0 comments »

I finally finished the assembly video!! It went together really easy. Nothing went wrong, it just took me a while to make sure everything was set up square/true/flush/etc…to my OCD expectations lol. I will be posting another video of the first start up and cut. If anyone has any questions about the assembly, please feel free to ask!Thanks for watching:)
