12-30-2017 06:27 PM by Dutchy | 7 comments »

.This is the blog of the building of the VW bus according my pattern. . ..This build is from the prototype and after this is done I always do some changes in the drawing where necessary. So the final plan is a little (better) different. I used mostly Chery and Ash for the build. .. Comments are much appreciated.. 6 11 .. LATER MORE ABOUT THE FRONT. .. See also the blog of htl

Hand tool workbench build #2: Wood selection -- and the verdict is:

12-30-2017 08:23 AM by SauceMan | 0 comments »

Hard maple. The above image pretty much sums up the reason for me. If you look at a shaving of each, you’ll see that the hard maple is much more homogeneous whereas the ash splits into strips. I’m concerned that those strips will end up translating to chunks popping off (or tearing up) from the surface of my workbench as I accidentally dig chisels or other sharp objects into it. Here’s an image of the two “candidate” pieces of wood that I cut, smo...

Hand tool workbench build #1: Introduction and goals

12-29-2017 06:24 AM by SauceMan | 3 comments »

Hi all! I’ve got this crazy idea that I’ve been hinting at which is to build a workbench entirely using hand tools. I have a number of power tools, including a table saw, a jointer and a thickness planer, but I’m thinking that I’d like to try to make this project by hand. My goal is to share my progress through an overdue youtube channel I created. Here’s a link to my channel where I go over some of the information you see in this post: https://www.youtub...

Large variety of exotic hardwoods and wood working tools. Free for my fellow LJocks

12-27-2017 05:46 AM by kiara583 | 20 comments »

Helped a friend move from large house with fully equipped woodworking shop to a smaller home. The overwhelming task of packing a 3500 sq ft house plus shop was difficult. Ran out of storage room so everything else was to be thrown out. Thought it would be a shame to throw it away so I spent a week hoping someone would appreciate this treasure. Will post more pictures. Turning tools, large dust collector, drill press, saws etcs. Could sell but would rather share. I only have time invested ...

Shop stuff #113: Something Roubo-esque Pt 1 It's a long video

12-18-2017 09:41 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

They are taking down some dead and dangerous trees around our place. If you have been following you will know that I have plenty of firewood. I decided to take a section on one tree and mill it up into slabs, freehand, with a chain saw. Not a job for the faint of heart. Then I proceed to “take the ugly” out of it with a router and sled. I am calling this Part One of “Something Roubo-esque” as I am hoping it is the start of my workbench build. Parts of this series...

Shop stuff #111: Something Roubo-esque

12-06-2017 08:14 PM by JimDaddyO | 6 comments »

Got the first step done today. Don’t let someone tell you that you can’t free hand mill a log with a chain saw. You just have to be a bit nuts to try it. Of course, the nail in the wood didn’t help much. I now have 2 slabs of ash, over 4” thick, about a foot wide inside the bark at the narrowest point and about 7’ 4” long. I hope to get 2 3×11 by 6’ long slabs for the top of the work bench. Something that I am getting video of and it wi...

Shop stuff #106: No Lathe Chisel Handles

10-06-2017 01:17 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

My first time ever using a draw knife. These are the first chisels I ever bought and the handles have given up on them. I don’t have a lathe, so you work with what you have and learn and have fun at the same time. My son has recently shown an interest in woodworking so these will be his first set of chisels.
