Powermatic 45 Lathe #3: Stand painted, started Putting it all back together.

03-17-2011 06:48 PM by stevengaletodd | 5 comments »

The stand is now painted, it did take a little work to get it cleaned up. I used SoyGel on the old finish that was caked on. I put it on and let it sit for 30 minutes and the old finish scraped right off. I was also able to find a could missing pieces that I needed for the tool rest. I’m getting ready to put the lathe back on the stand. Here is a picture of the tool rest before I put it together. I also got the head stock assembly put back together. It cost me about $...

Gloat: New John Jordan Hollowing Tool

03-17-2011 05:59 PM by JamesVavra | 0 comments »

In anticipation of Trifern's upcoming class on hollow forms, I ordered the 1/2” hollowing set from John Jordan yesterday morning at 9:41 AM. About 15 minutes ago, the mailman dropped it at my front door – that’s a 25 hour turn around folks. That’s the straight and curved tool, a spare set of cutters, the 18” handle, and the sharpening jig. James

Discovering Wood #2: A Little About Me

03-17-2011 05:12 PM by DocT | 3 comments »

The following is my second post at Discovering Wood, posted concurrently here at Lumberjocks: I guess that I should tell you a little about me. First and foremost, I am an avid woodworker. Like I mentioned in my first post, I have been working with wood for more than 25 years (and I’m only forty!). I started back in high school with a scrollsaw, in Dad’s shop, during the heyday of country décor, cutting goose shapes from pine for my Mom’s craft business. It paid quite well, and, as it ...

Restoring Hand Planes.. My methods #10: Stanley #103 Block/Pocket Plane restored and upgraded! w pics

03-17-2011 05:10 PM by Dan | 7 comments »

This small pocket sized plane is probably used more then any of the planes in my shop. The plane is what I suppose you could call a cheap plane. The blade depth adjustment is a pain in the ass and the plane chatters and chokes very quickly if your blade is not set just right. However once you get the hang of the blade adjustment and once you know the limits of this plane it is extremely handy for small jobs and touch ups. The planes size make it very easy and comfortable to hold or keep in yo...

Tool gloat ... of a sort

03-17-2011 03:30 PM by Woodbutchery | 7 comments »

Yesterday had a Delta 22-560 planer show up on Craigslist for $50, so after a call and drive out to New Caney, I became the proud owner. It’s been sitting in the shop, unused, for quite some time, and has a go of rust on it along with some general attention required, but at that price it’s what I expect. So. A while back someone had an entry about what type of shop you could put together for X amount of money. To date I’ve spent around $1000 American and have acqui...

Shaker Cherry Nightstand - Handtool heavy #7: Step 7: Fitting and constructing the drawer

03-17-2011 02:11 PM by Bertha | 10 comments »

First, to fit the drawer front using the No. 5 (set thick) and the No. 7 (set thin). I left the top & bottom of the drawer 1/16” oversized, so I shouldn’t have to take off much wood: Here’s what I mean by thick & thin: I’m quite pleased with the fit. My fiance’ specifically chose this drawer front for the grain pattern. The rear is fit in the same manner and I’ll then fit the sides: Moving on to fitting the sides: ...

The things you find find...

So I’ve made my drill charging station and decided I needed to cleanup a few boxes of miscellaneous shop stuff from when I moved 4 hrs ago. It’s amazing what you can find when you clean. I found a router wrench that I’d been looking for for atleast year. I must of tossed it in there one day. I also discovered that I had doubles of two forstner bit which they don’t give away. Guess I need to get organized more often!

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #287: Five More Days of Prep

03-17-2011 01:33 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

”Time goes by so slowly for those who waitNo time to hesitateThose who run seem to have all the funI’m caught upI don’t know what to do” And running I am! I have never felt such exhilaration in preparing for a trip before. (And I mean that in a good way!) I am torn between wishing it would get here fast and knowing that it will pass so quickly that I want to take my time and enjoy every bit of it. I got to pick up my car yesterday from my mechanic. It is all...
