Weekend Warrior Woodworking Magazine #13: Hand Plane Challenge Update with Giveaway Announcement!

347 days ago by James | 0 comments »

I am ashamed to say that I am not getting in nearly as much hand planing practice as I originally intended to. Hopefully those of you who are joining inon the challenge are finding time to work on your skills. I have not even started to work on the Try Square yet but I did download Andre Roubo’s Try Square Digital Download by Chris Schwarz and it looks like a pretty good plan. I do intend to build a Try Square based on his plan before the end of the month. You know that saying “burning the c...

Pen Turner's Swap #1: Getting excited - and getting prepared

2383 days ago by Nils | 3 comments »

Tim (itsme_timd) sent out the box for the pen turner's swap over the weekend. I’m the second to last out of eight participants, so I’ve probably got a few weeks to prepare. I have quite a few pen kits and blanks, and even a few made up pens, but I want to do one or two special things for the box. I’ve been looking at the CSUSA kits, which get great reviews from other LJ’s. I might spring for one of their more upscale styles to put in the box. I also got the WoodTurning...

Three drawer box #2: Back to work

298 days ago by ElliottH | 2 comments »

The month of October I was off work recovering from hernia surgery and I made a big point of NOT going to work to make sure I heal correctly. Well I went back this Monday and it was finally able to stay after yesterday to work on this chest of drawers a bit. I got this plow plane at the flea market for 10 francs a while ago and had a chance to use it here. It took a while to get used to but it worked alright after a few pieces. The chest is something like 700×400x 400 mm of ...

469 days ago by WoodForTheTrees | 3 comments »

Hello Fellow Woodworkers! Please allow me to introduce myself! My name is Lee and I am a woodworker. It has been three years since I first felt the obsession take hold and it gets stronger every day. The force is so strong in this one that I am now one year into a two year long woodworking course in Malmö, Sweden. The blog idea originally started out as somewhere for me to showcase my school projects. Wait, hang on! It’s actually a result of my school deciding to have an exhibiti...

Mantle Clock Project #3: Carcase completed

1199 days ago by DrJosh | 0 comments »

After an enjoyable weekend of work, I was able to get the basic carcase of my mantle clock. I did all the joinery (rabbit joints) with my router table. Simple chamfers decorate the edges of the top and bottom caps as well as provide a shadow line (to hide any slight imperfections) at the top and bottom of the carcase where it is joined to the top and bottom caps. I used a card scraper for the first time on this project for surface prep and I love it. After a good scraping, I was able to start...

Making Waves in Wood

48 days ago by Dave | 0 comments »

I started my next project which is to be a gift for a friend that recently had a baby. They are into sailing so I wanted to make something that represented the water. I had some lyptus in my wood rack that I enjoy using – density of oak with color of cherry – with cool curly grain. I decided to use a stringing technique I saw on LumberJocks to make “waves”. One of the pieces I had had some sap wood that when I was evaluating made me think of the sky. So I decided it would be a nice cha...

Tapering / straighening jig #2: Getting started

425 days ago by mIps | 0 comments »

Somewhere along the line I’ve misplaced my camera so, until I find it, no pictures are available. So, using laminate flooring as the base has it’s advantages and disadvantages. Advantages include known and pretty much guaranteed flat. Disadvantages include the built-in tongues and grooves on all 4 sides and the bottom is VERY slippery. First thing I did was to trim off all the tongues and grooves so that the saw blade just nicked the main surface. Second was to cut grooves...
