“Don’t Go In There, Sir – It’s The HTOZ !”

1 day ago by handsawgeek | 4 comments »

Most of the handsawgeek basement shop annex consists of an area designated as the HTOZ, or ‘Hand Tool Only Zone’. It is a place in which power tools of any shape or form are disallowed. It is where all of my Neanderthalistic (is that a word?) tendencies takes place. Here’s a cartoon by me !!!...... To be honest, this whole basement annex thing came about when complaints were made to Mrs. handsawgeek that very little woodworking could be done in the winter because it was ...

Sgabello di Fossacesia #4: A Seat with Some Curves

1 day ago by Woodbridge | 10 comments »

The Italian 16th century Sgabello had a flat seat. They were used as hallway chairs. If the patron of the house wanted you to stay you were invited in. If not, they didn’t want you to get too comfortable and stay too long. For my version of the Sgabello I decided to go with a classic Italian mid-century modern look . My seat would have some curves to it. The olivewood seat is made from two pieces about 9 inches wide and 18 inches long. The boards were about 1.75 inches ...

But yet I was able to get up on time and make my way to a new lumber store that I found that had the “European Beech” in stock I am over the moon that I have it here in my shop, I was so close to ordering it from online and was dreading buying stock unseen and havin...

“The Handplane Book” | Best Traditional Woodworking Books & DVDs

1 day ago by WoodAndShop | 2 comments »

In the above video I share another one of my absolute favorite books about traditional woodworking: “The Handplane Book” by Garrett Hack. Read my original blog post here. I hesitated to buy this book because I thought it would just be a small book about someone’s handplane collection, but I finally decided to order it online. I was wrong about this book being slim on information. This book is exceptional and very helpful. Not only does the book have beautiful photographs of h...

30 year break

1 day ago by Jeff | 4 comments »

After building the Grandfather Clock in my previous blog post, I took a 30 year break from woodworking. Why? I don’t really know. I graduated for High School, went to College, got a job, got married and then had 4 children with my wonderful wife. Other than that, not much was going on. During this time, projects were mostly house related. Although I did build three headboards for my daughters, a deck and various other small projects with my Dad’s help. I spent a lot of my...

A Quick Tip for New Turners

1 day ago by TannerTurnings | 3 comments »

Something to be aware of when turning Bowls:- When you sharpen your Bowl Gouge you may get a tiny “Burr” on the heal of the bevel that then results in scratches in your piece at the point of transition between the wall & the base on the inside. It’s always worth checking for a burr on the heal, and if you find one, just remove it with a fine file and then a bit of fine sandpaper, just to make sure the heal is smooth.

FANTASY MARQUETRY #3: Preparing a packet For Cutting

1 day ago by stefang | 5 comments »

You might remember from the last time that I was busy preparing veneers by cutting them to size and also putting reinforcing tape on the face sides. The marquetry will be cut with the back side up and the design in a reverse position (mirror image) placed on top of the packet. Taping or gluing paper on the face side protects the veneers from damage and levels the face veneers so that any differences in veneer thicknesses will appear on the back side and can be sanded/filled to level for gl...

1 day ago by Monte Pittman | 12 comments »

Of course with sales you go into every show hoping that you sell everything you have. Then the show and reality bothstart. This year, the rreality started late. The weekend was huge. I was able to sell enough Saturday and Sunday to easily pass the break even point. Sunday alone I sold more than the entire week of the rally. I was figuring on being sold out quickly this week. Then came Monday. Oh the people are there, they simply aren’t looking for anything. Still having a good week, bu...
