Restoring a MASSIVE Underhill Gouge #2: Handle Making/Completion

02-17-2017 03:36 AM by Lemongrasspicker | 1 comment »

If you prefer not to read, the video is here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aegPxohhUqY The handle for this beast was something that took a long time. I don’t have a lathe so carving the handle via axe, knife, and spokeshave was the only option I had. The handle design was inspired from the handles I had seen on framing slicks. The overall length of this now with the handle is 34” I haven’t weighed it but I suspect it’s in the neighborhood of 4-5 pounds. Ash wa...

Shop stuff #78: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 12: More French Polishing

02-08-2017 02:01 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Going farther than I needed to, but I was experimenting and wanted to show the process. One of my favourite finishes. I think the wax in the shellac caused a few issues. I have only used dewaxed flake shellac before but it is not available locally, so I tried what I could get my hands on. View on YouTube

Restoring a MASSIVE Underhill Gouge #1: Rust Removal/Cleanup

02-02-2017 04:32 AM by Lemongrasspicker | 7 comments »

If you prefer not to read, the youtube video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fT5ArQLTQS8 I came into possession of this chisel via the wonder that is Ebay, you just never know what cool thing you might find. I had wanted something that would let me add some texture to large pieces like coffee table tops and/or wood carvings and such. I came across this one and immediately thought it was very interesting. And indeed it was, Underhill the maker of it seemed to go out of bus...

Starting out with the French Polish method of grain and pore filling. A bit longer but after reviewing the take, I thought it stood on it’s own. So here is the beginning process of French Polishing. View on YouTube

I finally get to the end of the wood work and start finishing in this one. It is hard to believe there was so much to it. It was a long and challenging build and despite being very ruthless in cutting things out, there is still a ton of video. View on YouTube

We are slowly getting there folks. I am prepping and starting the finishing process and finding out how bad this ash is for tear out. It has some wild grain and, like ash is apt to be, stringy. Hang in there, things are about to get interesting on upcoming episodes. View on YouTube

The Ultimate Vice Jaws

01-07-2017 10:46 PM by ShaunMeighan | 4 comments »

Hi all! I’ve recently made myself a set of jaws for my engineering vice to make it more usable for woodworking. These jaws increase the surface area contacting the workpiece and adds pieces of leather for extra grip. I’m very happy with how they turned out and would love to know what you think of them!

In this segment I get the stretchers made and joined to the legs of the coffee table. I am still not accustomed to the new saws and will have to put more effort into my form. Never the less, the half lap dovetails come out OK. Except for one little repair that had to be made along the way. There will be more mistakes in upcoming videos, but they all get dealt with. As I was editing this I noticed I went from shorts and a T shirt to long pants and a pull over. The change in seasons is st...
