Take A Picture, It Might Last Longer

1979 days ago by trifern | 10 comments »

This is the piece I turned this evening. It is some very green maple. By the time I was finishing it up, it started getting hairline cracks all over it. This is one of the risks you take turning green wood. I decided to take a picture of it. After all it might last longer. I ran it under cool tap water to rehydrate it and placed it in a brown paper bag to finish drying. I’ll keep my fingers crossed. I hope it works out, I kind of like the shape.

1979 days ago by Joe Watson | 2 comments »

I have a Craftsman jointer/planer that has a model number of 113.232211 this wasn’t the standard model. the motor is mounted inside the main part of the jointer. I cant find a manual or information on when the thing was built. it works great though and I am not disappointed I bought it.

Vintage Seigh for Christmas

1979 days ago by Karson | 12 comments »

I had seen this vintage sleigh in Wood magazine some time ago and I had to go searching to find it again. It was in December 1997, Issue 101 I believe that I’ve seen it somewhere else but I didn’t want to buy the article without searching further. One of the new officers at the Woodworking Club thought he might have it. He did and he brought the magazine to me and i scanned it and created a pdf for future use and to keep from cutting up his magazine. The sleigh was found at ...

Ponderings #20: The Problem with B&D Firestorm Stuff

1979 days ago by Tomcat1066 | 10 comments »

I’m shopping on the ‘net earlier today and found myself at the BORGs’ sites. I’m in the market for a new jig saw and a router (yeah…need a few tailed apprentices to make woodworking a bit more enjoyable for the time being). One of the saws was the Black & Decker jig saw. At about $60 less than the Dewalt or Bosch I was looking at, it had all the same features or a few more. Here’s the problem. None of the specs actually tells you how it works in ...

Woodworking in America 2008 #5: WIA Wrap-up

1979 days ago by Texasgaloot | 3 comments »

I’ve had a couple of days now to rest up, process all that information, and try and heal from the sinus infection I picked up (when I lived in Kentucky, the sinus infection was how I was able to tell the seasons were changing!) I’ve been reflecting on the entire event, trying to figure out how I wanted to condense this huge volume of knowledge and impressions down into one blog, and it is not easy. Here are a few highlights of “Mack Goes to Berea:” 1. Woodworkers ...

Hand Planes #6: Working on planes

1979 days ago by dsb1829 | 8 comments »

Been fussing over some hand planes in the garage. Okay, so what’s new there? Evapo-rustYep, that’s right Evapo-rustThis stuff is cool. Dissolves/converts rust in a non-toxic and non-corrosive chemical reaction. It is rare to come in contact with a cleaning solvent that actually works yet is not something that you have to worry about getting on your skin. Here is an example… before: after:About 5 minutes with a wire brush and the dark oxide comes right off leavin...

Pen Turners' Swap - Round 3 #5: It's your 'turn', Trifern!

1979 days ago by itsme_timd | 11 comments »

I’m not sure if everyone’s aware of this or not, but just wanted you all to know that I don’t get paid for coming up with these catchy titles – nor do I have a team of writers turning out these masterpieces. It’s all me and it’s all free… just so you know. :-) The map… Any-how… the box is on it’s way to visit Trifern in IL. Looks like some fantastic stuff heading his way. No doubt he’ll make good use of it! The bo...

Woodworking in America 2008 #1: Dovetailing: Pins vs. Tails with Klausz and Underhill

1979 days ago by Al Navas | 1 comment »

From my blog: I have posted three entries, each with video, of the Dovetailing: Pins vs. Tails session with Frank Klausz and Roy Underhill. I kept the editing to a minimum, to give the viewer a sense of “being there”. You will hear a little background noise, and the lighting might be a little on the dark side. But it reflects in a good way the way it was. I had an opportunity to attend the 2008 Woodworking in America conference in Berea, KY. It was a terrific event, attended...

New Sawstop Demo

1980 days ago by lazyfiremaninTN | 10 comments »

I was watching one of my new favorite tv shows tonight, Time Warp, on the Discovery Channel. They had the inventor of the Saw Stop system on showing off the system. At the end of the segment, he ACTUALLY put HIS finger into the blade. OMG….made my heart stop, but the system worked as designed.
