Shop Notes #17: Experimenting with Black Acacia

04-13-2018 04:05 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

Some time last year, a local lumberyard cleared out the last of their black acacia for dirt cheap. The lumber wasn’t great—lots of splits and narrow pieces, but for the price, it was worth a gamble. After a few months in the shop, I finally broke out a couple of boards to make some beer flight paddles and a wine rack or two. For the paddles, I wanted to create a flat-bottom surface for the tasting glasses. Boring a partial hole with a forstner bit would leave a score around...

Tagua Nut Ivory wafers

Hmmm,more to clean up….tracked down the two “culprits”, was easy enough, still had shavings in them.. Not only was the glued up panel out of the clamps…it was even flat..

Dungeon Remodel, the drill til #3: almost done, sidetracked a bit

04-09-2018 10:53 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Getting an update, here. Lots of trash hauled out of the shop…took a few days… One of the first items cleaned out. Made a nasty mess on the floor.. All the hammers were set aside…. I think they will stay here, for now. Found a lot of stuff in that drawer…clamps, drill bits, a second mallet.. A speed square….a few bits of hardware…about a dozen files.. And a slick. Handled files went back into the drawer…non-handled ones went to...

So, for all my box making buddies out there, I thought this video I just found today would really speak to you, especially the hand tool purists. This Japanese woodworker steps you through his build from beginning to end, and it’s a fascinating look into some really interesting techniques and some amazing hand tool woodworking skill. Enjoy!
