I thought it would a good idea to have a chapter dedicated to detailing some of the tools and tips used in this series. This will be an open chapter,adding to it as I can. #1-Moaning Chair The most important item in the shop is of course,the Moaning Chair.These have been an important part of boatbuilding since the beginning.First there was the Moaning Rock,and then came the Moaning Stump and when wolves were present, safety could be reached by scurrying up the nearest tree to the Moa...

Hope Chest #1: Shell is finished

07-07-2009 06:27 AM by rrlumber | 3 comments »

I have finished the shell of the hope chest for my daughter. I will now start on the inside fit and finish. I plan to use aromatic cedar for the bottom to give it a cedar chest feel/smell. My mortise joints on the frame and panels came out good but they will need some fine tuning with a scraper to get them even all the way across. The plan I am using called for a grove down each leg to receive the tongue on the styles and rails. If I did this again I would use a stop dado instead of ...

Bee Swarm

07-07-2009 01:24 AM by DocK16 | 15 comments »

Some of you know I am also a bee keeper in addition to woodworker and keep numerous hives around my shop. This past spring I had numerous swams where large amounts of bees leave the hive to start a new colony. I was able to record this phenomenon last month which is difficult as it lasts for only a few minutes till they disappear out of site unless they lite close by as in this case. I know this isn’t woodworking, I offer this video to those who have never witnessed this phenomenon ...

Karson's wood gloat moves to Tennessee #4: Completed and ready to travel to Delaware

07-06-2009 11:15 PM by jeffthewoodwacker | 8 comments »

I applied 6 coats of satin wipe on poly to Karson’s maple burl wood gloat platter last week. This platter is 17 inches across at it’s widest point – if you want real excitement in your life turn something like this on a lathe at 3000 rpm – as they say at the amusement parks “keep your hands and feet in the ride at all times”. Took Karson’s platter and the other platter that I made from the same plank to a gallery show this weekend and had to turn do...

The Slowest Farm Shop #4: The slowest summer ever? But there are projects...

07-06-2009 08:28 PM by Will Mego | 4 comments »

So like many here, this summer has been one of hardship, and little work, and lots of stress. But as outlined earlier, that’s why this blog is titled the way it is. This spring didn’t see as many trees fall as I figured would, so not as much work there. One old box elder did take a plunge…right into the fork of a large mulberry tree, splitting it about 10 ft….but still 10ft off the ground….and over a fence right into the neighbor’s garden…so that w...

Fein removes tub surround

07-06-2009 07:54 PM by EricWrights | 4 comments »

I had been holding off buying this tool for several years. Recently one of my customers in whose house I had installed a fiberglass tub surround had a crack appear in the soap dish of the unit. The company sent someone out to fix the crack as the surround was still within the twenty year guarantee period. The repair failed within a year and the company at its option decided to replace the complete surround. When I install these surrounds I use twice the amount of adhesive that is supplied by ...
