Hellow my Fellow Jocks, Bloggers and watchers! Today I just wanted to post a little blog that seems to happen to me and probably some of you or will eventually anyway. Money: The Greater of all Evil, What makes the World go around, If you got it, you don’t need it, If you don’t need it, you got it. Time: Some have lots of it, Some don’t have any of it, Some it’s a little iffy, they may have it but not lots of it. Feeling Like It: Some feel great, o...

First Rehab - The Disston Backsaw

02-27-2010 01:06 AM by jcontract | 3 comments »

I’m headed to the Philadelphia Furniture Workshop next weekend to take a class on Handcut Dovetails. The first day, we practice saw sharpening. So, rather than practice on one of the “good” saws, I found an old Disston that was in need of some serious help. I figured what’s the worse that can happen. So here she is: Really rusty for sure, but surprisingly the handle is in good shape, and the saw plate is straight as well. I might just be able to get a working sa...

Bunk Beds for the Boys #1: The Design Is Done...Ready to Start Building...

07-21-2007 04:47 PM by RobH | 2 comments »

Well, I finally got enough time away from the bookshelf commission to sit down and finish up the plans on the bunk beds. Now as soon as I get paid for the book shelves I can run off to the wood store and get the wood for the bunk beds. In interest of tracking the project, I thought I would post the Sketchup renderings of the project. So, here we go. First of all, an overall view of the bunk beds. Yes there are rails and a single step for the bottom bunk. After these beds are don...

Land of Nod #2: Joinery

01-14-2014 08:40 PM by byerbyer | 4 comments »

Over the course of couple of weeks I slowly milled the pieces down to final dimensions and it was time to start with the joinery! The “headboard” ends, as I call them, will be mortise and tenoned with the spindles captured between an upper an lower rail. Because I’m a glutton for punishment I decided I’d do a double tenon to give the frame plenty of strength. Considering I hadn’t cut/chopped a mortise in over a decade it was going to be sink or swin… I cut ...

Woodworking Technologies: A Programmer's Perspective #2: Introduction to Carbide

06-26-2012 04:36 AM by pmcwood | 0 comments »

Carbide, is often a single word misnomer referring to one or more specific carbide mixtures depending on the context in which it is used. A carbide compound is simply the presence of Carbon and one or more other electronegative materials such as: Titanium (Ti) Tungsten (W) Cobalt (Co) Aluminum (Al) Silicon (Si) Why Carbide is so popular is its distinct characteristic that, when mixed with other components such as Cobalt (Co) and Nickel (Ni), allow its structure to be changed t...

Father - Daughter Project #14: Cut mortice for lock set

09-02-2013 01:12 AM by Mainiac Matt | 2 comments »

I finally got to use the mortiser I picked up from Craig’s List last year. I have it set up with a modified cross slide vise and it works great. I have the chisels VERY sharp and they cut the Red Oak like butter. A little hand chisel work to precise fit the lock set…. I used the router table to cut the clearance for the flange, but then I made a boo-boo… No way I can live with this, so I’ll have to square it up, patch it and re-cut the mortis...

The dump truck #3: Axis

02-06-2016 07:14 PM by Dutchy | 11 comments »

To make the axis holes fully parallel I made a new jig. I had seen this jig here at LJ but can’t remember where. Sorry! My own conceived jig was much more time consuming. I make the hole 8,5mm over the full length. This makes that the 8mm. dowel can turn in the axis.

A Strategy for Woodworking #36: Discontent

11-24-2014 04:09 PM by Gary Rogowski | 5 comments »

Discontent is the key to success, not satisfaction. To do more than you did before is what creation is about. To do the job better than the last time, to create something more special, or to walk new ground. This is what comes from our seasons of discontent. If we say to ourselves, I have learned enough. I am now the master of my craft, you have lost touch with that spark that keeps us creating. Satisfaction doesn’t spur us to do more. It leads us only to the couch. Keep trying to do be...
