Slit Drum Build #1: The Test or Prototype Drum

10-23-2010 11:51 PM by OttoH | 4 comments »

After seeing Steve at Woodworking For Mere Mortals, throw together a Slit Drum I have decided to build one as a Christmas present. I have built a prototype / test drum and can now proceed with designing the final drum and building it. Since this is a learning process, I have decided to blog the building of the drum to document what I have learned about it. I did a lot of research on the internet on how to build a slit drum and found that there are three preferred ratios for tongues 3...

Router Marquetry

10-23-2010 08:05 PM by shipwright | 17 comments »

I hope this hasn’t been covered before. It is a technique that I designed myself but it can’t be original. If you’ve looked at my projects you’ll know that I like to play with veneers and inlays. The way I do it is a little different. I use a standard cheap ($30 ) router inlay bushing set, but instead of spending a lot of time “grounding out” the field piece I cut both the inlay and the field out of thick (1/8” +or-), shop-cut veneer. This is where th...

From the "Little Good Pieces" Blog Archives #4: Powerless Satisfaction

10-23-2010 07:52 PM by TheGravedigger | 0 comments »

This article was originally posted on the “Little Good Pieces” blog on September 13, 2010. I finished construction of my first piece of greenwood furniture the other day. True, it still lacks a seat, but that sort of counts as a second project, and I really didn’t want to wait till spring to post about it. Not terribly impressive is it? It’s just a little footstool of white oak without any curves or ornamentation of any sort. However, this stool has great ...

A gift from a friend, old saws.

10-23-2010 06:28 PM by PaBull | 14 comments »

In my business I have a friend, who’s dad was an old woodworker. The man is getting older. So yesterday my friend came by and said: “Here this toolbox is yours. So i opened the toolbox, and at first view not very exiting. But after I pulled out the tray, I found the treasure. And I started to pull out the saw’s one by one. Some of the not so old, but some are some cool looking ones. I have my work cut out, restoring some of these.

Carving a carving knife #2: Finishing up the first carving knife

10-23-2010 06:20 PM by PaBull | 2 comments »

It is not always nice to have to stop a project because it is bed time, but it does give you a better perspective view the next morning. Before having this sharp object in your project, I figured I might as well do most of the shaping before the glue up. What I am not sure of is how big to make the handle. It seem too big, but I’ll make an other one after this anyway. I used the Elmer’s Epoxy. I hope this stuff will be strong enough t hold this together. Remember this is ...

Thanks to a fellow LJ'r (Don Husslein)

10-23-2010 05:04 PM by GaryD | 4 comments »

I knew when a fellow LJ’r Tom Francis told me about this site, that is was something special. Little did I know!! I was perusing the projects recently and saw a new workbench posted by Don Husslein. The bench was beautiful, but what really caught my eye was had attached to it an old Gripmaster vise system. I was given one of these in a box, i.e. no instructions, no pictures, no nothing but the pieces. Well, lo and behold, here is one on a work bench, and had made the remark to Do...

New Veritas plane..

10-23-2010 02:54 PM by Rick Boyett | 10 comments »

WOOHOO! My new plane came in yesterday. I’ll have a full review coming up. For now here are some pics of my new toy… (ahem) tool… (^_^) Ahh those crazy Canadians and their new-fangled recycling…. (I kid, I kid) Here we go, the un-boxing. I’ve heard Veritas called the “Apple computers of hand tools”. I think they just need to master packaging and that will be an 100% true statement. Of course my of us woodworkers really couldn’...
