The American Craftsman WorkShop #21: Shop Organization - The Payoff

01-14-2010 06:29 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 19 comments »

Like Searching for El Dorado... Open space in the wood shop can be as elusive as El Dorado, the lost city of gold. I am fortunate enough to have a shop large enough that I can have some open space to assemble and stage projects before sending them out. Just as efficiency is critical for my survival, so is open space. Space is necessary to stage incoming materials, assemble, finish, and stage projects for shipping. Space Is A Vacuum Open space in the shop creates a vacuum and it wi...

Welcome intro, thanks #1: thanks

01-14-2010 04:07 PM by augie | 3 comments »

Thanks for the fond welcome aborad! I do a fair amount of woodworking and enjoy all the aspects of all sectors. I enjoy carving, turning, ban saw boxes, scroll saw projects. I wish I had more time to devote to all the projects that are on the drawing board and honey do list but my job takes a fair amout of time from my daily life. I will be retireing next year and I can hardly wait. There is just something about being in one’s shop the hurry up world goes away. So thanks again for the ...

Overwhelmed By Projects

01-14-2010 03:30 PM by Maveric777 | 14 comments »

Well I guess the title of this blog can be misleading. It is not so much a bad thing I suppose. I am tickled to have so much stuff lined up that I am wanting to build. The problem is I find myself looking like a dog chasing my tail. Right now I have three separate projects going on (was four but it crashed and burned…lol) and I only have so much free time to work on them. Seems like every day I see something else that sparks the old mind up and pulls me in another direction. As of ri...

Blog Posts #4: Photo of Krenov Hand Plane

01-14-2010 07:19 AM by JSZ | 0 comments »

In response to a large number of requests, I posted a photo of Krenov’s hand plane on my blog. I appologize in advance for the poor quality of the picture; I took it with my cell phone. In the next day or so I will re-shoot with a higher-quality camera and then re-post those images. Sincere thanks to everyone who has reviewed and commented on the blog and via email. One more time, here is the link to the post with the photo.

Right Angle Clamp Jigs

01-14-2010 06:36 AM by David Craig | 11 comments »

I had to do a glue up of a shoe rack for a friend today so I finally got around to making some right angled clamps. Design mostly inspired by Wood magazine. It is a tip most woodworkers are familiar with but is worth a frequent repeat. There are many ads out there for various types of right angled clamps. Most are made from plastic, some from aluminum and other metals. They are used to assist in keeping any box type project square while fastening. I didn’t feel like buying them so I ...

You've just been cope and sticked!

01-14-2010 06:21 AM by kolwdwrkr | 8 comments »

We’ve covered the basics of a shaker style door, and then added moulding to it. There are a variety of door styles. Lets discuss a cope and stick. First of all, the cope and stick door is a 5 piece door. The Cope is the ends of the rails, or the “tenon”. The sticking is the decorative detail on the rail and stiles. The cope and stick cuts a 3/8” groove in your stock, as well as a 3/8” tenon. Use these depths to determine the width of your door. For instan...

Cronicles of Draven #1: Stumbling onto something far bigger than myself

01-14-2010 06:14 AM by Deuce | 6 comments »

Deuce’s log, January 13, 2010 We’ve all heard stories of past lives coming out to the surface…I cannot forget how crazy i thought the person who first suggested it to me was. Memories of being someone else? Where’s the lithium? The past few months I’ve been biting my tongue, because memories are now something I cannot remove from my head.I’m not crazy, but lately i have been remembering quite vivid memories about being someone else; About a past life....

Accu-Head Helical Head Replacement #1: Received my Accu-Head Helical Head today

01-14-2010 04:45 AM by mckenziedrums | 6 comments »

Gotta love when you luck out and the shipper turns out to just be one state away… Just a quick photo for now. Was hoping to get it installed tonight but ended up watching a movie with the wife instead. These guys do a DARN good job of packaging their product. I had to get my screwdriver out and unscrew 6 pretty heavy duty screws that were holding the lid down on this packaging. Kudos to them for making sure it arrived here in excellent shape. One pleasant surprise when I opened th...
