First fit for the base and limb

1310 days ago by junipercanyon | 0 comments »

This lamp project is going to be great. Lots of twist and character. Drilling the hole for the cord is going to be a chore, but I am ready for the challenge.

Wood and Tool gloat

1419 days ago by Rustic | 6 comments »

Last week was our 10th anniversary. We went to Sleeping bear Dunes in Honor, MI. While we were there we had a real bad wind storm that knocked down a basswood tree in the motel’s yard. (no damage to anything). Well I asked the manager if I could have a few pieces. This s what he gave me Then we stopped at an antique sop and picked up this Stanley Baily #3 plane in excellent shape. Just needs some TLC Paid 20 bucks for it. Now I just need to learn how to use it....

1496 days ago by woodnut | 1 comment »

Awhile back I had asked if their was anything to do concerning woodworking in the Myrtle Beach area, that’s where the family went on vacation, and Huff said I would be welcome in his shop and to stop by. After talking to him some more and trying to find the time in between activity’s I was able to meet Huff and let me tell you he is the real deal, not that anyone on here is not, but Huff showed the wife and I two of his projects that he has underway and they are beautiful. I wa...

shop construction #2: back to the beginning

1704 days ago by papaj | 4 comments »

This is going bacwards a little since I found the pics from the beginning of the project. What got me started on actually building the new shop was my boat project. Here is a pic of my boat project under the carport I was using to protect the build. You can see my small garage in the pic. So, down with the old and up with the new. Deconstruction begins. The old garage was built in 1942. I donated 95% of the materials to Reconstructed. I kept some of the pieces for myself to inco...

Let's Build a Guitar! #1: Starting Out, Let's do it together!

387 days ago by Dallas | 10 comments »

OK, here goes, Awhile back I bought a nicely put together Les Paul clone guitar kit. It is so nice that I don’t want to put it together as my first kit so instead I bought a cheaper kit to practice with.I want to do it this way because I have absolutely no experience building musical instruments. If anyone is interested I would like this blog to be a community effort. I got the box today and am posting the pictures of the grand opening. The first impression is that this kit so ...

Review of WoodRiver Shop Lights #2: Update to my review

1703 days ago by cmckerliesr | 0 comments »

OK, I originally posted a review of these shop lights on and then copied it here because I was to lazy to write it all over again. I just thought that there may be others out there looking for a light and a magnifying light for use in their shop. Well I have had the chance to use these two lights a lot more recently so I thought I should update my review of them. I still love these lights. I have now had the chance to run both of them on AAA batteries for about 50 hours (r...

My First Blog - My First Workbench #1: My First Workbench

2297 days ago by manilaboy | 6 comments »

In the early years(more than 35 years ago) of toying with a hammer, nails, a saw and a pieces of wood, I found it very excruciating and a lot of times very very painful as well to nail two pieces of wood together with some semblance of alignment. It was very difficult to saw straight if not impossible and again most of the time it was also very painful. Those were the times I wished I had another pair of hands. My father saw me struggle with what I was doing. He just watched and went about...

Some new to me hand planes

1095 days ago by nobuckle | 4 comments »

A good friend of mine is selling some of his planes which means I get to benfit from this activity. I was blessed with the acquisition of a jointer plane and a Stanley No. 5. Here are some pictures I took. I think the Stanley No. 5 is considered a jack plane. I recently learned that the manufacturer’s number cannot be used to guage the type, but it’s the length that determines the type and use – at least as far as Christopher Schwartz’s book on planes is concern...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #700: Everything's Working (that's scary!)

831 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Sometimes we plan things and they actually work out like they are supposed to. When that happens, it can be puzzling and confusing. Have I finally found the ‘magic formula’ to make things work? Humm . . . I spent the day yesterday cutting. (And cutting and cutting some more) It wasn’t a bad thing. In fact it felt really good to be at the saw. As I watched the piles of wood grow I felt a great sense of accomplishment. While I was working, my little Canon printer w...
