My little cousin is getting married this year so my aunt asked if i could make her a blanket/storage/keepsake chest. This was my very first blanket chest/storage chest build but of course i wouldn’t turn down the opportunity!(quick side note, So i do about 90% of my work with hand tools only, i do all the milling and and joinery and basically everything other than long board rips, then i use a table saw…just thought this was important for you to know in this part of the story) So yeah…normal...
Hey guys i just thought I’d talk about the importance of networking with each other in the woodworking/maker community. Social media is a HUGE platform to show your work and meet other woodworkers all over the world( i think we all know this) but i just wanted to share my usernames for my platforms in hopes you guys could give me a follow and ill return the favor. Its all about growth and i have a dream of making this my way of living and you wouldn’t know how much it would help m...
In this one I get the carcass of the chest finished up and assembled. Turns out bigger than I thought, and that is a good thing. View on YouTube
If you prefer not to read the video is herehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwLDBA1nQIo So we are now at the most annoying part of this entire restoration and that’s the bridge plate. Here’s a picture so you can get an idea of what and where the bridge plate is. It’s the small overlaid piece of wood A guitar’s bridge plate does quite a few very important jobs for the guitar. To make it simple, the pull of the strings on the top of the guitar is quite intens...
Exclusively with hand tools, I made this rip tenon saw, using the blade of a cheap back saw, but that had a good steel. It took me about 5 hours to make the slot in the brass by hand, but it was worth the effort.Using the turning saw for the handle was a real pleasure, that kind of saw is wonderful and very fast. If you can, make one, you will enjoy it like me!. I use it with a band saw blade cutout. You can see the two videos I did about it :) Cutting the steel with the proper sciss...
I need to clear a spot in my shop to continue insulating and sheathing the walls. I want to get rid of my tool chest, so I am making a built in unit to replace it. I start with making the sides of the chest. View on YouTube
This past weekend, i was overjoyed to be able to attend the BSA’S University of Scouting, in NY. One of the classes I chose to take is something that just seemed to fit my personality, Whittlin’ Wood- Don’t Cut Corners given by a good friend, and fellow council member from my pack. It was a great course on how to teach the skill to scouts, safety, and general information on how to perform as an instructor. I very much enjoyed taking the class, as I have never tried my hand...
This is not a build video, it is a video explaining the pros and cons of the massive workbench I built. If you are interested in the build video, they are on my channel and have links in this video’s description. https://youtu.be/Y_AdilMBcec
Quick update from my honey locust bench build. I have been trying to juggle this in with a myriad of other projects that seem to pop up daily. My daughters birthday is tomorrow and I had the pleasure ( heavy sarcasm) of putting together this monstrosity of a swing set. I pray that one day my daughter will have kids and have to suffer the same fate as I haha. Two whole weekends of battling this behemoth and it’s finally complete. Now I can focus on some of my stuff, hopefully. I ...
In this video I restore a Belknap bluegrass block plane. I believe that it belonged to my great, great grandfather (my grandfather’s grandfather. I believe that it was made in the 50’s. so not really that old by hand plane standards, but I had a blast restoring it and learned some good skills. https://youtu.be/GneTY8fCDRs
