I'm back!

10-16-2010 01:58 AM by ackychris | 1 comment »

I’ve had a long hiatus from this site, and from woodworking—blame summer for that—and now I’m getting back into it. There’s not really a point to this entry, but I’m a rebel so I’ll write it anyway. I’ve been doing minor “projects” the last couple weeks, mostly whatever I can do with a pocketknife and the scraps of sandpaper and exotic wood that I smuggle into work. The exciting thing is that I’ve been using scraps I thought...

A "Dumb Ass" moment

10-16-2010 01:40 AM by Rustic | 28 comments »

Well, I finally got a carving book that I had ordered. I was reading it and noticed that I needed to do some refinement on the Santa head I carved. So I picked up my tools and the head and started carving, I was only going to do a few cuts. Well, I should have wore my Kevlar glove , as I was making a cut, the knife slipped and sliced my thumb open. It cost me 10 bucks, 4 stitches and some razing from the Dr. and nurse. I am out of commission for a few days. Lesson learned.

Same Song, different band... Ordered a Veritas

10-16-2010 12:23 AM by Rick Boyett | 1 comment »

Any of you following my incoherent ramblings know that I tried out a new Stanley Sweetheart Low Angle Jack Plane. Well I use the word “tried” kinda loosely because it was in such bad shape that I ended up returning it the next day. So strike one for me, let’s try another swing at this.. I just ordered the Veritas Low Angle Jack Plane. I also seriously considered the Lie-Nielsen Low Angle Jack Plane I went with the Veritas mainly because I like the Norris style a...

Shoe Carving Challenge #9: I have a shoe

10-15-2010 11:37 PM by MsDebbieP | 18 comments »

Oct. 15/10 I have a shoe… it may not be pretty and it may not be perfect but I have a miniature wooden shoe that looks like a shoe. I won’t point out the flaws because, well, what’s the point? If you see the flaws then you know they are there and I know they are there.. if you don’t see them, why would I want to ruin your good critique! Ha. :) My daughter was here this afternoon and saw the shoe sitting on the table. She said it was so cute and she liked it...

Milling Cherry Logs #1: Milling/Drying a 8' Cherry Log and Some Red Cedar Slabs October 2010

10-15-2010 11:24 PM by Matt Pec | 1 comment »

I’ve heard pro and con about drying boards and slabs vertically when they’re fresh cut. It makes sense that they might dry faster this way but does anyone have firsthand experience with this? I cut some 8’ long, 2” thick Cherry slabs and some 2” thick Red Cedar slabs and don’t want to wait 1yr + for them to finish drying. Any ideas? Thanks!

Torque Workcentre at work.. #33: What cutter?

10-15-2010 10:45 PM by degoose | 6 comments »

In answer to a question from LJ Sharon aka PurpLev.... I took some close up pics of the Carb-i-tool 55 mm 3 flute surfacing cutter… this bit has 3 rotatable replaceable carbide tips…. as they dull or are damaged you loosen of the holding screw with the tool supplied and rotate 90 degrees to a new face… when all 4 are used… just replace for a few dollars each.This is a fairly powerful router bit and it is advised only to use it in some form of jig… such as the &#...

Clamps! Finley adding some quality to my collection

10-15-2010 09:18 PM by Dan | 14 comments »

I am still newer to woodworking and a while back when I was starting to look at other shops online and in magazines I noticed that most shops had a huge collection of clamps. At that time I couldn’t help but wonder why they needed so many clamps. I guess I was just surprised to see so many in one shop. So as I was setting up my shop and quickly filling it with tools I thought I should grab a bunch of clamps. After a trip down the clamp isle I was shocked to see how expensive they were. ...
