Hey guy exiting news for me. I was told by the boss to make two sets of pens and boxes for a business trip to china. They will be given as gifts. I was given until the 15th. They wanted two of the boxes and pen set i just turned for another job in Oklahoma (no pic yet) but it is penn state long wood satin set with red Mallee buro and ebony. they are going to give me time of work to do this task as it is very high priority.
I was very intruiged by Steve Latta’s DVD for Lie-Nielsen “Fundamentals of Inlay: Stringing, Line & Berry” and the associated line of inlay tools that they offer along with it. I learned (by way of the Villiage Carpenter) that Steve has been touching a longer course on inlay for quite some time, and used to advocate the manufacture of your own tools, in the style that Lie-Nielsen is now offering. When looking at those offerings, I did think that several of them could...
If you read my first blog about my Grizzly experience you know I had to wait till Monday to buy a new bearing. I googled info on bearings over the weekend and this is what I found out. I was originally looking for the exact numbers and letters that the tool calls for 6205ZZ. The numbers are what is important that’s the size of the bearing. The letters designate weather it’s sealed, shielded or what ever. I needed shielded on both sides and to make it more confusing the different manufact...
I am a retired machinist/mechanic and have always dabbled in woodworking, first as a hobby and now commercially. Over the years, my pet peeve with small, non-industrial woodworking equipment is that they sadly lack most forms of x,y,and z axis indexing commonly found on metal working equipment, most notably mills. Fine adjustments to table saw and router table fences, blades and bits were usually a seat-of-the-pants feel, no dialing in a few thousanths to get that last bit of accuracy. Yes...
Thursday July 9, in Oklahoma City OK, might be a place to pickup some deals on lumber, plywood, and machines. It’s way to far for me to go, but it looked interesting. Here’s the link http://www.grafeauction.com/auction_detail.php?id=115330
New blog posting on my 12 n 12 challenge is up at Project Artistry Blog. Video coming shortly.
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...
I’m putting this ad in for my Uncle Bill who is selling all of his woodworking tools from his home in Cape Neddick Maine. I thought someone on here would be most interested in what he has to offer. He has a Grizzly Shaper G1024 for $250.00, a W & H molder/planer for $1000 with knives, a floor drill, a DeVilbiss air compresser…and more and more 207-712-6178

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 ...
