Sitting With Some Old Friends ….sitting with some old friends,and what is this need that shakes my be-ing,till from the shards of my distant past,comes the dust storm of ever present wood-chips…. ….these friends have sat patiently now,as the years pass and seasons come and go,their numbers all-ways on the increase-decrease,but with patience and expectancy they abide…. ….my friends have with-stood the ages of change,knowing that in these times-these too shall p...

The making of a woodshop #1: And so it begins

01-31-2010 01:35 AM by JimNEB | 2 comments »

Well this started last fall when the shop class at the HS I teach in poured the slab. Since they were building two garages and the other on belongs to the superintendent…guess which one has walls and a roof. The slab is 20’ X 20’ and will join with my old garage. I’m hoping this spring they will get back to me and I can make some updates as we go along. I also included a picture of the current garage/workshop and you can see that things are pretty tight in there.

Restorations #1: Mysterious bench plane.

02-08-2016 12:44 AM by Combo Prof | 30 comments »

I picked up this bench plane (after bargaining) for $10 at our local antique store. It has no makings. The iron has no markings. The unusual lever cap has no markings. It is 1/2 inch shorter then a Stanley 5 but has the same width. The knob is small, smaller then any I have seen. it measures 1 1/2 inches in diameter and is 1 13/16 inches high.The iron is 2 inches wide (as expected). Help me identify it. Here are some pictures. Update March 6, 2016: Work, SWMB...

05-01-2016 07:47 PM by DocSavage45 | 24 comments »

DOWNDRAFT TABLE BUILD – 2016 This is a project I needed to do to work on my boxes. I’m sharing details for LJ’s who might want to build their own if they haven’t already. Minnesota winter means enclosed shop. Dust! I needed a table that would fill a number of functions for me. I wanted a large enough space to sand furniture parts as well as making boxes. I’m providing this blog for those of you who want to make a slightly larger down draft table/box. I...

a blog about blogging

07-18-2012 05:15 PM by need2boat | 3 comments »

So it’s been a wile since had the chance to blog. In the last few month I’ve decided to go pro as they say and resell vintage saws as well as offer restoration and sharpening services. My focus has been on offering restored vintage saws with replaced and sharpened plates. I joking call these Resto-Saws which I pinched from the popularity of Resto-Rides and for those who don’t watch car shows it’s vintage car that’s been updated with current equipment but at the ...

Outfeed and assembly table with tool stations - small shop challenge #1: Concept and design work in sketchup

07-01-2016 06:53 PM by Mike_D_S | 2 comments »

My shop is essentially about 2/3 of a two car garage and as my project scope grows I’m find myself continually thinking about storage solutions and ways to work better. I started my latest round of shop re-organization by selling my Jessem free standing router table and moving my router to a table saw extension wing I put together. The whole point of changing to the TS wing router table was to be able to add a larger and more useful outfeed and assembly table along the lines of the ...

AGING OF SURFACE #4: Replica of the shelf from Kizhi isle, Republic of Karelia, the 10th century

06-15-2013 06:47 PM by Walther von Einik | 1 comment »

The idea of making this simple and natural by it’s natural aging properties was originated after looking the photos, which were made in the expedition in the rare Orthodox areas of the far Russia. I made the photos of natural and many centuries’ terms of the wood aging on the Kizhi isle, Republic of Karelia, people started to live here in 10th century, started to live with slavonic people. There are very many monuments of the wooden craft, still have them now in the good quality. Their Orthod...

Almost finished benchtop router table.

08-15-2011 06:35 PM by SSMDad | 9 comments »

Getting tired of trying to handhold the router to do anything, I decided to make a table since I’m cheap and the wife is … er No pictures yet as normal for me because frankly it was the first time I’ve built something like this and secondly, I did it from my mind and not from any set of plans. Last but not least, it’s ugly as sin! What it DOES do though, is WORK. Pretty much everything is complete except finishing touches on the fence (bought the wrong type of ...

Board Game Travel Case #2: The exterior walls

08-30-2011 09:18 AM by ChadR | 1 comment »

I got a 8’ 1” x 10” board and cut 2-14” sections and 2-26 1/2” sections. I ripped one of the 26 1/2” boards 3” in to create the top lid. After nailing the pieces together I was about to work on getting proper dimensions for the interior drawers. I decided before finished the day off I would make a test drawer. I created the front, back and both walls. I then decided I would make them box joint together and it worked out very well, since it was my firs...
