Skill Building #2: Learning More of the Things!!!

08-22-2016 10:08 PM by CraftyCantrell | 3 comments »

I’ve switched to a largely video format, as it’s easier to hit record at the beginning of a process, hit stop at the end, and then edit out the unusable bits. This week I undertook Lesson 1: Assignment 6: Tongue and Groove Joint Here is the video: Link included above, as I’m not sure that the video is loading correctly here. And you can read my full write-up on my regular blog

Transitional planes #1: Genesis (Fulton Tool Jack plane restore)

08-22-2016 05:57 PM by AGargulak | 0 comments »

This is my first post, there will probably be many more to come. I bought a transitional jack plane to flatten the top of the workbench I’m going to build in the next few weeks. The plane as it came to me. The tote is broken and the body cracked. Japanning is chipped in several places. Light rust on castings and the blade. I found this interesting… Why are there temper colors on the chip breaker edge? The edge is pretty chipped but the grind angle seems fin...

Workshop safety #1: Workshop fire – averted . . . and a “whuf” question

08-22-2016 05:37 PM by lightweightladylefty | 11 comments »

In the process of making a jig, I routed a dado for T-track in recycled plywood. Since my trim router was already set up with a ¾” straight bit, I used it – making four shallow passes 9” long and a total depth of 3/8”. After each pass I stopped and vacuumed the sawdust. After the final pass when I started to vacuum, I saw burning embers and immediately stopped vacuuming. (You can see the burn remaining in the dado in the photo above.) I knocked the sawdust out of the dado and onto the ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1765: Busy Hands . . .

08-22-2016 01:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

The busier that I get, the more I want to do.  Why does it work that way?  I never understood the concept of "boredom." Even at a young age. With an entire world of things to do for work, leisure and fun, I don't know how anyone could feel that they were bored. I suppose it is the way we approach things and life in general. I am always amazed at how quickly time seems to pass. If I had one thing that I could change in this world, it would be to slow things down a ...

Mirror Frame #2: Decided to Finish Before Assembly

08-22-2016 03:10 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

Today I sanded the parts thoroughly. The orbit sander worked well on the flat surfaces. For the coved curves I cut a 1 inch dowel the length of my sand paper. I started at 60 grit since my cherry burned a lot. Then I worked up to 150 grit. I applied natural Danish Oil to the cherry. ARM-R-Seal was ragged on the maple parts. I applied two coats to every part. I made sure not to touch within the grooves and the tongues. I will next glue and clamp these parts, but that will be work f...

Cherry finger jointed box #3: Stanley got his groove back

08-22-2016 02:46 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, I had the plane set up, might as well see what it can do You have keep an eye peeled, and watch the fence. Otherwise, the plane will wander off to the side. Candle wax helps the plane to slide along better. I got to the point that only the thumb was near the knob, three fingers were shoving against the fence. LIGHT cuts help, too, at least in this stuffFinally got all four sides done, and the grooves even matched! And, by cutting through only half the width of the “fin...

Chain saw milling....I hope...LOL! #2: CHAINSAW MILL MADNESS!!!!!

08-22-2016 02:29 AM by DocSavage45 | 14 comments »

Chainsaw Mill Madness (Blog) This was written in 2015 and I intended to post it, but time gets away. I’m posting this in memory of a fellow Lumberjock who’s avatar was “Dallas.” His work is still here although he passed away in late fall /early winter. He and I shared a crazy idea, but he made it work for him. Using a 50 cc Poulan ProChainsaw on a Panther Pro Alaskan chainsaw mill. This is my story of Murphy,Dallas, and ignorant me. Hey lumberjock’s! Some of you may have no...

Toy Wheel Cutters availability question please…. While I use many shop bought wooden toy wheels, I also like to make my own using a profiled T/C wheel cutter.I have a couple of sizes but am looking for different profiles.Downunder there seems to only be a two suppliers of cutters so I’m hoping some of our LumberJock friends from across the world can direct me to possible North American and European sources, thank you.
