First Cutting Board #3: Pre-finish

11-18-2010 10:20 PM by Szczuldo | 3 comments »

Figured i’d update this real quick. I just finished sanding the board flat and routing the finger holds. The board lost 0.5” in length (stupid me forgot to change zero on my plunge base when i changed the bit.) Looking back on this project, I wish I had more in my garage than just a Table saw, ROS, and router. Sure driving 10 minutes to my friend’s place and using their belt sander and jointer isn’t too much of an issue but I don’t want to overuse my welcome. ...

The old time woodshop journals #23: Why I make spoons

08-22-2012 11:56 PM by jjw5858 | 5 comments »

The shop is filled with a wonderful strong scent of fresh Cherry wood and the mission is on to evolve a cut branch into a country spoon. Very interesting this country spoon making is, so many great “spoonists” with their different styles and approaches but I suppose my greatest influence so early on is Peter Follansbee. His episode this past season with Roy Underhill in The Woodrigh’ts Shop truely captured my creativity and fascination to have a go at this kind of work. If y...

Holtzapffel Workbench #1

07-25-2009 03:01 AM by Mark Briley | 9 comments »

I don’t have a table saw, but I do have a cool Wenzloff & Sons 16” tenon rip saw! My tenons didn’t turn out too bad – the saw cuts very well. But I’ll admit it, after the first tenon I was wishing for a nice table saw with a dado set like Christopher Schwarz used. Cutting these out took some time and I’m glad it’s over with.

Lathe Stand #3: The Daily Grind

01-08-2015 04:10 AM by Jarred | 0 comments »

I learned early on that turning tends to dull tools rather efficiently. Before we moved my workbench, which had the lathe bolted on, was right next to some shelves, where I bolted the grinder. These were fairly tight quarters, and the grinder was close by anytime I was on the lathe. Now that I had a bigger garage, I couldn’t find a location for the grinder near where the lathe stand was stored. My original lathe stand design did not leave enough surface to add the grinder to the top of the st...

cabriole leg with quarter column #1: Question on how to put a quater column in a cabriole leg?!?!

01-19-2013 11:48 PM by LYBeaulieu | 1 comment »

I want to make a cabriole leg with a quarter column in it. I’m puzzled as to how to make the pocket the quarter column sits in. Do I plan for the pocket during the glueup of my leg blank or do I make the pocket during the shaping of the leg. If it’s the latter, what is the best way to go about making the pocket?

First Box #5: Fresh start (so far)

11-27-2009 12:44 AM by Bret | 5 comments »

(This is actually part 4, but I messed up setting its Series until after I had part 5 written, which got added as part 4…) So far so good. I picked up a new piece of curly maple (with plenty to spare!) and after cutting it down to roughly the size I’d need for the project and after removing the knots which spoiled the ends of the board (but which saved me 10% at Woodcraft!) I proceeded to joint an edge and cut it down to rough size for the box. Now I need to decide how to d...

Tool cabinet #5: Another delay

11-30-2007 01:55 AM by CutNRun | 3 comments »

While completing the tool cabinet, I have also been working on a quick and dirty cabinet to mount my current, knock-down router table top onto. My plan is to make the cabinet the right height so that it can do double duty as an outfeed table for my table saw. The knock down table was based on the Fine Wood Working design recently provided on line. I have the smaller Triton router mounted in it using a Woodpeck router insert. I love the combination and it serves my needs very well. ...

My First Workbench #18: Day 18: The big dry fit!

08-30-2012 12:39 AM by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

To see the picture heavy version of this post, please click here! Very excited today because I got a lot accomplished! I ended with a dry fit of the entire bench and started work on the leg vise. To get started, I finished sawing the bridle joint on the last leg…best cuts to date! Straight as an arrow!When the last legs were cut, I grabbed the rubber mallet and chisels and hacked out the joints in about 10 minutes. So much faster than before! Sharp chisels are a joy to wor...
