Tenon Challenge | Guess right and win!

11-09-2018 09:33 PM by LastingBuild | 2 comments »

Today, I cut a tenon using my Japanese Saw, Timber framing chisel and #4 hand plane. I filmed it and timed it. I want as many guesses as possible as to how long it took to cut the tenon using these tools. A lot of woodworkers don’t realize how efficient hand-tools can be. The more guesses the better. The winner will get a prize! See video below! View on YouTube

Marc Adams School of Woodworking 2018 Review

11-09-2018 07:56 PM by Matt887 | 2 comments »

My inaugural year of attending classes at The Marc Adams School of Woodworking was an experience like none other. I was unsure what to expect as I found the school after a recommendation from the guys at the Against The Grain podcast not from a trusted friend or colleague. So when I arrived in April for Zane Powell’s Basic Cabinet Making course I was a bit apprehensive. As I entered the building I was surprised to find 20 high quality benches in the classroom and a machine room full of top of...

Shop jigs #4: Cutting out the wheel blanks.

11-08-2018 11:16 PM by htl | 11 comments »

There’s a hundred ways to cut out the blanks for the wheels but here’s my method. It is best to use oak, walnut, and maple is out standing, you need a strong grain so it doesn’t chip.Cutting the treads a little deeper than you need will give you space to sand out any chips, make the wheels a little bigger than needed for this reason also. My wheels need to be 2 1/2” so I ripped down some lumber a little wider than needed. Then at the table saw cut them to ...

Toy Construction #242: Chevy Corvette 1953 Making what's wrong right

11-08-2018 10:33 PM by htl | 12 comments »

I guess I’m not much of a modern car builder, give me square parts and all is well. lol Here’s the bad part and then the fix. There’s a lot a work that went on between these two pictures. Now we got her back to right.I know this isn’t true Vette styling but it is what it is.I am having a hard time coming up with a seat that works so will be playing with the wheels and sleep on the seat thing.

Toy Construction #241: Chevy Corvette 1953 Chevy Corvette

11-07-2018 12:20 AM by htl | 8 comments »

My 1962 Corvette is looking more and more like a 1953 Vette, the first one.It has a single head light per side and rounded fenders.This has caused me a few problems which I hope I can work my way around. Everything is looking ok at this point till I started to make the seats and there’s way to much space for your feet.Using the 1962 pictures for the out side and kind a guessing on the inside I made the inside way to large.I got back on the web and with some deep digging found...

I decided to cut some grass!

11-06-2018 11:18 PM by oldnovice | 9 comments »

This did qualify as a wood project because it is bamboo flooring and bamboo is not wood, it’s a grassI cut this out of left over flooring that Fernando, a head nurse, gave me to play with and, as I really didn’t have any play time I made this for him. It didn’t cut too bad but not nearly as clean as wood!The finish on the very too layer is extremely thin and it was difficult to not have any chip out. The lettering and border were cut with an Onsrud 1/8” tapered (...

I did a little more this weekend. Actually I did a lot. Don’t pay attention to the wheels. They are the next thing I’m going to work on, then the 50 cal. By the way, what should I put on the wood? I have Tung oil, Danish oil and linseed oil. I can’t decide.

American flag bench #3: Bought a small craftsman router/table combo and a couple roundover bits.

11-04-2018 08:44 PM by Dubbs | 0 comments »

I bought a router/table combo from sears ($100) and a couple roundover bits ($15 each). I rounded over the tops of all 13 slats then sanded them down. Then I dryfit them using 1/4 inch nuts as spacers. Had to drill new holes because most of the boards didn’t line up with current ones. Bought Ace hardware out of 1/4”x1.5” bolts nuts and washers for now (13). I’ll have to go back later for the rest. When all is said and done it will have cost me ($30)
