This is a picture of my first test humidor, obviously it’s a work in progress. I’m using box joints like this for it, and I am using the Freud box joint table saw blade set. I chose some cheap hemlock because I was not sure how well I would do. Aside from some tear out because my table saw jig was set up ( sawn through ) for 3/4” depth of cut, and now for the build I’m using 1/2” wood and depth of cut, it didn’t come out too badly. The tear out problem was...
This countertop around oven range will be made of two separate pieces which connect through a “bridge” with one seam behind the range. The right part is about 13” x 24”, the left—37” x 24”. The bridge is of two parts, each is 40” x 3” and to be glued to either left or right side to allow one seam connection. Cut the 1-13/16” walnut boards into segments: The left side glue-up: Two boards of the right side glue-up: ...
I have been fortunate enough to assemble and use an array of handplanes – Stanley Bailey bench, block, and specific use planes, oriental woodies of various sizes, Lee Valley Veritas bevel up and scraper planes, and some other assorted types. It took a while, as in 4-5 years of using, fettling, trying various methods of things and different plane designs to form up some conclusions from my experiences. I thought I would pass along these experiences, primarily with the lesser experienced in min...
After looking through some other blogs here on LJ and watching some Youtube videos I thought that the tumbling block cutting board was something that looked challenging, cool and something I wanted to try. I learned some good ideas from these other blogs and wanted to share some of my experiences having now made three of these, my setbacks and discoveries to better produce these tumbling block patterns. I purchased a Wixey digital angle gauge as it looked like you really needed to be accu...
Here is an idea for gun owners that don’t have a gun case or space for a wall gun case. That being said it is not just for guns, you can display just anything that will fit in the case, such as coins, knick knacks, precious mementos. The dimensions are 5’ by 2’ by 18” when it will be finished. There will also be a drawer under the showcase in the center of the table. The wood used is reclaimed barn wood from my barn.
I have run all the 10/2 and 10/3 that I need except for two lines that need to be spliced. The rest of the lines are 14/2. I originally thought I could get the 8 runs to the Woodshop through a 2in conduit. But here you can see that with only the 10/3, and still needing 8- 14/2 wires, there was no way. I will have to go up to a 3 in conduit to avoid derating everything circuit! Having run over a mile of cable and wire, I have installed approximately 4 splices. I am sure I will have ...
Use up a few scraps and the rest of the 10” table saw blade for this easy made marking knife. Check the video out HERE! As always, please subscribe!
I’m looking to make a replacement blade for a hollow auger. I know the blade is one inch wide. I do not know thickness or length as the auger has not arrived yet. If anyone has one of these hollow augers, could they post a photo of the blade? Also, I would be interested to know if anyone knows of a source for these blades. I am assuming one will have to be made but it does not hurt to ask. Example of what the blade looks like.
I have wanted one of these for quite a while and last week the gods of eBay smiled upon me. The beader is essentially a mass produced scratch stock that puts profiles on wood. Stanley made them from 1886 to 1941. Because this one is jappaned, it was made before 1898. Handplane Central has some information here. When shopping for them you want to look for one that preferably has its fence and set of 9 cutters. You can also make your own cutters with custom profiles. Both Lee Valle...
A while ago I ask you to come up with new ideas for me to use my talent. One of you said to try nature, tree’s animals, then someone said Turkeys, OK I spent two days looking for the right picture. Then three days to come the stage I am now, I will try and go through each stage. and show how I come up t it. Stage one, looking for the right picture; Stage two was putting the pattern onto wood; and the third stage is doing the burning itself. I found a process which is, o...
