In this episode I talk about some layout tools. Layout tools are very important because if your cut line isnt straight your cut isnt going to be straight.
Here’s an interesting article of how this woman wanted to create the largest wooden ship of the century:Kea Tawana: Woman Shipwright And here is a more recent article about her.
Well after a long wait I finally finished shaping the stems for the canoe. It was a lot of work but very pleasing. I had never made anything like this with a spokeshave and plane and after a little getting used to it I got comfortable with it and it went pretty smoothly. Being a cheap wad I picked up a spokeshave at Harbor Freight for $7. I took it home and worked the face up a little on some sand paper and honed the blade and it worked great. I finally settled into doing the initial s...
I recently received My Wife’s late Father’s Craftsman 10in 2.5HP 13Amps 5000RPM Table Saw 137.218780. It is more than a few years old but is in really great shape. The blade that it had on it didn’t look in to bad of shape. I did pickup a new blade to use instead and keep the other as backup for now. I bought a Freud Industrial 10in Heavy Duty Multi-Purpose 60T 1/8in Kerf Saw Blade LU82M010. The thing cuts wood like it is warm butter. I am very happy to have come acros...

OK! I consider myself relatively computer literate! Or did! Darned if I can add a picture. I can copy the link from photobucket . . .but no picture follows. Then again we had to get up early today and I’m pooped. Anyone else have this issue and solved it?
Can’t believe it’s been that long. I remember stumbling onto this site and thinking, “Hmmm, looks interesting.” It has been, to say the least. One of the first comments I got was that it could be habit forming and it is. Lots of neat people with very creative projects. I’ve learned a lot and hope I’ve helped some too. A special tip o’ the hat to Patron, Jayjay, Karson, Wood Soldier and A1Jim as well as so many others. It’s been fun and no...
I have been wanting to get this project completed for some time and now its on its way to being done. I built this about a year ago and it had served well but it was difficult to set up without a fence until now. I picked up the PinnAcle fence on closeout at Wood Craft and got the dust port parts while I was there as well. I had the T-Slots so I put them in and I will make some feather boards tomorrow and install the front T-Slot for that T-slot then one day this week I will go back to Wood C...
Hello LJ, I did some practice planing today, using my Stanley 220. It is obvious that I have a ways to go before I am profecient with hand planes, but I can tell you, I am completely in love with them. Since there isn’t much one can write about, when all they did was make shavings, I did a bit of creative writing as well. I hope it is somewhat enjoyable. http://bit.ly/cplmTr Brian
