Is is a Web or Blog?

03-10-2009 02:36 AM by closetguy | 4 comments »

It’s difficult to type right now because I decided to run my bandsaw blade part of the way through my right middle finger Sunday afternoon. Thank goodness it was just the ¼” blade. I hate having to sand blood off a project. I just went through a huge web site overhaul this week. It was a big decision to commit the time, but the results were worth the effort. When I started Appalachian Craftsmen last year, I needed to get an e-commerce site up rather quickly. I flashed back seven year...

Five years later, Workshop Remodel. Going from pretty to functional #2: Wheels for everything

01-25-2014 08:28 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 2 comments »

Well, I haven’t gotten much done on the shop remodel since i first posted. I can heat the shop but the temperature has been so very cold that hunkering down with netflix is what ends up happening lately. I did do some sheetrock taping after I got the bench out and I do have plywood and mdf waiting on saw horses to be cut up for the new assembly table and table saw base. But, I did get my order of swivel 3” wheels with brakes from harbor freight. After looking at Dusty's review ...

Adventures in Lutherie #5: Peg reamer and peg shaver

11-18-2016 08:41 PM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

[Above] Always trying to do things on the cheap, made a peg hole reamer using a rat tail file. I broke most of the tang off and inserted it into a hole drilled in a piece of flat steel. I glued it together using JB Weld and it’s held up so far with no problems. To use it I drill a pilot hole at 3/16 inch and ream it out to the largest diameter on the tapered file which 1/4 inch. You have to twist the reamer in the direction that will try to force it out of the hole, otherwise it...

Planes #1: Found a no5 and no3

09-05-2014 01:26 AM by Matt | 4 comments »

Now, I know you all will say you find planes for $1, but I have had no such luck. Last weekend I picked up a Stanley Victory #5 in nice shape for $20 and then stumbled on an ebay ad for a $15 montgomery ward plane “and another”. The pictures were blury, but I was pretty certain I could make out a #3 on the front of the plane. I figured for $15 I’d roll the dice. The box came and I was happy to find a Stanley no3, a little rusty, but not bad. The seller through in a spa...

End of year #1: 2015 - What a year

12-20-2015 12:16 AM by Nighthawk | 1 comment »

What a year… it has been an adventure of highs and lows. A high being I starting filming my projects and uploading to youtube, I use to just post to this blog. One of my lows would be the drain on my energy especially during the winter months and continuing to push through and put out a project video every week since I started. I would like to thank all for your continued support in this venture… I met my goal of getting 1000 subscribers before the of the year and now closing i...

Closing The Flat Top Box

03-12-2015 11:09 PM by Texcaster | 3 comments »

Another use for laminated linings, drying racks. I like a laminated lining, a very strong component at a critical junction. However, guitars have been made, with great success, for a long time now with kerfed linings Once the top went on I couldn’t help but think of the guitar as a big chocolate cake. The neck is Mahogany and Silver Ash. ( not an ash at all but very strong and hard ) If you are making one neck block, might as well make four. The shoulders on the neck...

Different Woodworking Magazines

03-01-2011 09:01 AM by Alan Hart | 7 comments »

Hello LJ’s I was wondering how many different woodworking magazines are out there. I can think of Woodsmith, Shopnotes, Fine Woodworking, Popular Woodworing, American Woodworker, Woocraft, and Wood. I have thought of an older one, Workbench. What magazines can you think of? What do you subscibe to? What’s good, what’s not so good. I even thought of ones that airn’t quite woodworking magazines but have woodworking in them, Family Handyman and Handyman America.

Step-back Cupboard Build #8: Cut nails and scant holes

06-19-2009 05:50 AM by rwyoung | 2 comments »

Cut nails and scant holes. Everybody has a set of gimlets just gathering dust in the junk drawer, right? I know I could have used a twist bit and the cordless drill and zipped right through these but this seemed like so much more fun. A set of gimlets isn’t very expensive and I can see where they would come in handy in confined spaces and tight corners. I also got my cut nails last week. Ordered them from Tremont Nail Company . Played around a little bit with a few before star...
