From tree to bar! #2: Planning and learning

12-10-2014 06:45 AM by JonoMcHugh | 0 comments »

Before I start slashing away and chopping with my chainsaw, i thought it best to first do my homework and find out as much about the Blackwood tree as possible. The more I know about it, the better I can handle it…. Someone on another forum gave me some great advice and tips on working with Blackwood trees as well as what I picked up off the internet…. 1. Native to Tasmania and East Australia but an invasive species that was introduced into Africa and apparently my farm also...

In the Shop #1: Grandpa's RAS gets a new top

01-11-2011 05:59 AM by Hoakie | 5 comments »

Instead of adding a new project for the things I do around the shop, I thought I would start a blog about the upgrades as I make them. Over the past two years I have done a lot to convert the unfinished part of my basement into a woodworking shop. If you want to see some before shots you can visit the bt3central forums (probably need to register to see pics, sorry i’ll post them here soon) The beginningUpgrade 1 You can see what it looks like now in My Workshop in my profileR...

Holiday banquet or small LumberJock Banquet. Christmas Toys

11-16-2007 05:55 AM by Karson | 10 comments »

Tonight Nov 15, 2007 The Mason Dixon Woodworkers Club held it’s Holiday Banquet. We even invite the wives, children and significant others. And for some of the older members their chauffeurs. We had 52 people present, and 4 of them are LumberJocks. I keep trying to get more of them to sign up, but you know how old fogies are “Non Computer Literate” Our president owns a computer but no Internet. Our Vice President doesn’t even own a computer or cell phone. ...

Palm Box (copy) #5: More on chamfers

12-29-2010 02:39 PM by mpmitche | 0 comments »

There was very little I could find about my before mentioned lambs tongue stopped chamfer. A blog by Christopher Schwarz talked about an ogee terminated chamfer and a google books preview of Garret Hack’s Working with Handplanes showed a picture of a lamb’s tongue stopped chamfer with a discripiton that it is usually made with a chisel and hand tools. After a little practice I came up with a method and took the plunge on the box I am making. I also made a small relief und...

Plane Restoration #5: The Encore

04-11-2014 10:09 PM by bit101 | 2 comments »

I’m happy to report that my Stanley No. 4 is serving me quite well these last few weeks. I love using it and it seems to love being used. I’m learning its inticracies, such as what happens when the chip breaker is closer or further from the blade, and how moving the frog to open or close the mouth affects the plane’s operation. I think I find myself thinking up reasons to use it. I guess that’s not a bad thing because it really is very useful and for the things I use i...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1220: Making Progress . . .

01-16-2014 12:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be another day that just got away from me, although I did accomplish quite a bit. I spent most of the day writing the instructions for the Bunny Toy Replica project that I had shown last week. I find that as time goes on my woodworking skills are improving and I find better, easier ways to do things and I like to incorporate that into my projects. It is nice to know that I am still learning and improving. The rest of the day I spent working on my little ballerin...

I am using basswood. i got some for 75 cents a board foot. thought i would see how it went with cheap wood before i used expensive wood. fiddle #2 will get the good stuff if this one turns out good. this will give me some practice on carving and if i mess it up it don’t matter.
