Projects, the backstories #4: Cane in mystery red wood

03-25-2014 09:45 PM by PASs | 3 comments »

I use a lot of dunnage for my projects.It’s from freight shipped out of India and is usually some type of exhotic hardwood.Some pieces are a reddish hardwood. It has a very fine grain, is VERY hard, and every piece has cracks running down it.I have decided to only make mallets and other hard type things out of it.But I’d already cut a cane blank and decided to go on and make the cane. Besides I wanted to see how it turned out. I’d turned the blank to round a few weeks ago...

Blogging instead of Woodworking #8: What a Waste

08-15-2014 12:49 PM by Douglas | 0 comments »

Over on my blog, I’ve been catching up on some of the things I’ve been doing for the last several months. One is a set of wastepaper baskets, a few different designs, I made from cutoffs & scraps. I dip my toe into the “what to do with scraps” debate, and a few other things. Enjoy… http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2014/8/12/what-a-waste

Table saw improvements #1: Table saw fence

11-19-2015 08:33 AM by Marcello Bianchi | 2 comments »

I’m making a new fence for my table saw in the Biesemeyer style to improve the performance of my machine.If you have seen my previous project on how to improve a crappy table saw i already have a shop made fence on it butI’ve never been a hundred percent happy with the fence stop as its not something my fellow woodworker could replicate because it requires a specific part,so my new fence has a home made stop.

A Special Lamp for a Special Lady #1: Getting Started

10-02-2012 12:23 AM by William | 23 comments »

Some of you who read a lot of my ramblings know that I mostly work with cottonwood, pecan, oak, and mahogany (sapelle actually). The reason for that is that it’s what I have available. So I do what most woodworkers do. I work with what I have. It do not have the funds to seek out more exotic woods.Well, over the course of the last year or so, I have recieved several other species of woods from friends, mostly fellow Lumberjocks. I have been hoarding this wood because, truthfully, I̵...

DIY Jigs / How-to Woodworking #4: How to Set Up a Hand Plane before Shaving

12-10-2016 08:12 PM by Humus Workshop | 4 comments »

This is the story: after tinkering the plane I got so tired that at night I dreamed that I was at the beach using the plane like a mirror. So check out my dream come true here: https://youtu.be/eIzW6Nsi0aE The plane is a Stanley n5 with the sole and edges in a very poor condition. In addition, the blade holder (frog) was not flat so the blade did not work well. Although it’s a work that needs patience, believe me that you will have a happy ending and the difference is well worth ...

Morris Chair #6: A call to arms.

02-06-2015 05:26 AM by Luddite | 3 comments »

4 Feb 2015 Thanks to comments and such I finally decided on my approach for making the chair arms. I’d originally had planned on the Stickley method of laminate and cut so as to keep the arm looking bent. Well seems I hit a wall here as my band saw is not up to the job and I was certainly handsaw impaired to make such a cut.I’d floated the idea of a cut and spline method and got some great feedback, thank lcwood. I plan on cutting the board for the arm twice. First an a...
