After reading napaman’s blog in which he was looking for woodworking books, I noted a number of comments about James Krenov. I was saddened to note that he had passed away. I had not realized that.

Here’s what happened. After r...

On the LighterSide of Wood So after last night…. I decided it was time to resume my identity, as I am known to mortals. Last night’s photo avatar was a way of closing out a time worn photo image of my-self and, since I am much younger now, I thought I would post a newer version—vision of who I am. This one will run a short while here, till I can come up with a better picture of a hermit turned wood hobbit who lives ‘out in the woods’. ——...
Well I finally got around to permanently installing my Dust Collector. I’ve was using a 10’ piece of flex hose that I would connect to whatever tool I was using at the time. It worked fine but hooking the hose to the tablesaw meant that I had to lay on the floor. Not the best solution for those of us with a bad back. Here is the system installed. It’s all 4” S&D pipe that I got at Menards and I used caulking to glue it together. I used a Loctite product cal...

Ruminations, Philosophy, and Workshop Antics.......... #2: Running late, but the switch mechanics look good......I hope
Lots of thing goin’ on Saturday…....exercise, lunch with my true love, errands….....

Please understand, I am making this from scrap and the junk box….....that’s one of the premises….make a ...
Like most new planes, heck, what am I saying, like most planes, period, new or new to you, my Groz #4 was in need of a tuning. First things first check the sole for flatness… Heel to toe dead flat. This is a good sign, Side to side it is concave, at 120 grit I get scratches all the way accross, but moving up the grits the ones in the very center don’t even hardly come out. Time to work this plane on the sharpening board. Now I am pretty sure this isn’t the RIGHT way to do...
