The Etaux from Old Salem’s Shop (Article from Woodworking Magazine)

02-25-2011 02:44 AM by Tinnocker | 9 comments »

I was reading my RSS feeds the other day and came across this article in Woodworking magazine. As soon as I saw it I knew that I had to make one for myself! I have a Bessey vise that I got for a few dollars at the Columbus Flea market here in NJ. You know the old saying, you get what you pay for? Well I did! Needless to say it still served some kind of purpose for me, I tuned it up and made the best of it.When I looked at the article in WW online zne I started to get excited and w...

02-25-2011 02:02 AM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 36 comments »

You may have noticed that I’m a little late Announcing my Birthday this year. , A HAPPY “79”So please bear with me, the older I get the slower I get. I have a lot of projects going on, but only in my mind, so sorry, no one can see them. I’ll have to show you what’s been keeping me occupied this winter. Woodworking has been on the back burner this winter. Working with snow has been my main project so far. I’ll show you some of the fun IR...

Woodwork Biz/Getting Started #6: Item 4 and 5 - Using Postcards

02-25-2011 01:43 AM by billb | 3 comments »

There are many more ways to create postcards now because of the computer and easy to use graphic software. Most inkjet printers will do a great job with postcards, and you can purchase blank cards inexpensively, the problem is the high cost of ink. I suggest making a few with your printer to get an idea of the per card cost. If it does work out too high, you can create an original and take it to a quick print shop to have a quantity of them made. You may be able to go to one of those self pri...

Outdoor Harvest Table

02-25-2011 01:30 AM by BenBen | 0 comments »

I’m planning to build an outdoor harvest table. Design is quite simple, timeless, chunky and large table (quick sketch below… not exactly my skill). In Ottawa, Canada so weather will be an issue. I’d like to use quarter sawn oak but so far I’ve yet to find a source for the materials I’ll need. Materials may even require a trip to Montreal (assuming that they have a better selection than I do locally). Would love to find redwood to do this with… I have a sou...

Shop #6: Hand Tool Till

02-24-2011 10:54 PM by Big Ben | 3 comments »

My next shop project was suppose to be my Band Saw but that was pretty boring to talk about. I did the basic tuning, new cooling block, adjusted guides. I have yet to make the mobile base but that will happen when I need to move it around. What have been working on is a hand tool till. I decided I wanted to do more advanced joinery and having my tool spread out was a real pain. I will be adding more at time goes on but here it is at this point.The till holds my #8, #7, #6, #5, # 4 and LA...

Hand powered vintage bench grinder restorewith a smile to swirts 1/8 HP motor… I fell over this sweet hand powered grinder and spend a good hour restoring it.Now it runs like a new, actually I’m quite surprised how well and easy it runs after the restore since I never tried one before. When it arrived it looked fine, but quite tired, and was really hard to turn.So I disassembly it and found out it was an extremely simple construction, with few parts.So all I needed was...

1894 German hobel (hand plane) restored

02-24-2011 09:32 PM by mafe | 21 comments »

1894 German hobelhand plane – restored I found what I believe is an excellent example of the German and Nordic traditional hand plane. It is simple made, no fancy details except from the fact someone took time to decorate a little. Its cut from one piece of wood, and the horn are simply mounted with a big nail. The interesting part except from this is that the iron has been modified at some point and an adjustable chip breaker mounted, and it was this that made me fall in love with i...

Church Clock Project #6: Open For Service

02-24-2011 08:27 PM by William | 8 comments »

Lord bless the UPS guy!Ok. Maybe that was just a tad in poor taste, but I was so happy that my clock and new plans arrived. I was not happy that I failed to read the part about, “battery NOT included”. I started to town to get one since it is an odd sized type N battery. I stopped for gas though, and after getting over the sticker shock of the thirty cent increase in gas since I filled up my wife’s Jeep yesterday, I made the decision that the clock doesn’t actually hav...
