Tool Thoughts.....

02-14-2007 10:00 AM by Philip Edwards | 7 comments »

Hi FolksHere’s a picture of the rebate plane – I’ve put full step-by-step pics on my website. Hope you find them useful. Wooden planes are a real pleasure to make and an even bigger pleasure to use! Why is this?Thinking about it I reckon its for two reasons. One, they are made out of our favorite material and feel warm and inviting in the hand. Low friction, smooth action.Two, they are all specialised tools.Why is that important? And isn’t that really a negative thing?...

Dovetail Joint - The Everest of Woodworking?

02-14-2007 08:45 AM by Don | 8 comments »

When I started in woodworking, I frequently read that the Dovetail Joint was the mark of a skilled woodworker; that it was a difficult joint to make and doing so announced to ‘those in the know” that the maker was a real craftsman (or is that craftsperson?). Then I discovered that you could make Dovetail Joints on jigs; not just make them, but make them perfectly. So I purchased my first Dovetail Jig shown here. Now whilst this helped me make perfect dovetail joint every time, ...

Winter Awards finished, prizes sent

02-13-2007 10:34 PM by Martin Sojka | 15 comments »

Uff.. it was really time consuming to order and send all prizes. However it should be expected when I decided to reward ten voters in addition to winners and runner ups in two categories. But now I’m happy – grinning ear to ear as Debbie said ;) So expect your prizes in the coming days – hopefully most of them will be delivered next week. And start thinking about your entries for the Summer Awards because it is never too soon. It seems like we will continue with this s...

A visit with an old friend...

02-13-2007 05:24 PM by Ethan Sincox | 4 comments »

It felt good to be back in the shop this past Sunday afternoon. I paused as I walked past my bench, resting a hand on a bundle of small blocks of curly mahogany from my wood pimp, Chit. I haven’t really figured out what I’m going to do with them, but for $5, it was a deal I could hardly pass up. I picked up my hand and could see its impression in the wood dust that had settled on it since its purchase. That made me frown slightly – it has been too long since I’ve done any kind of woodwork...

In the Moment

02-13-2007 03:41 PM by MsDebbieP | 5 comments »

Although our past is part of who we are and a reminder of things we have learned and we envision and plan for our future, it is in the moment that we live: creating our life, portraying who we are, living true to our Selves. My first real understanding of this message came for a book (I can’t remember the name right now but will look it up) in which the author talked about the process of walking to the door to open it. What are you doing in the moment? Walking to the door? No, you ar...

Sharpening Lathe Chisels / Aussie BBQ - Video #4

02-13-2007 08:40 AM by Don | 5 comments »

Here’s an interesting video made last year. It features one of Australia’s most appreciated woodworkers, Ian Robertson, better known to his Mates as ‘Robbo’. Amongst many other accomplishments, Robbo is a professional wood turner. (He spent a couple of days a few years back teaching me the basics of turning.) Robbo has one of the largest lathes in Australia. You can learn a bit more about this and him here. (When you get to this link, click on “Robbo’s Big ...

Rustic Vanity #4: Vanity In A Pile

02-13-2007 03:38 AM by dennis mitchell | 15 comments »

A good day working. Did some assembly, but a lot more disassembly. I’m using 32 mm cup hinges on the medicine chest. Got those drilled out along with the shelf pegs. Glued up the boxes for the medicine chest. Put it all in one big pile! Made a trip into town to get finishing supplies. I’m all ready to spray tomorrow. This is the canyon I had to cross to get my materials. It’s been my in my back yard most my life so I just take it for granted. I remember my gra...
