Tilting a Dado Set

07-16-2012 11:12 PM by rockinmichael | 4 comments »

I was designing a project a few days ago, and a couple of the joints would use angled dado’s. I’m wondering if anyone has done this and opinions on the safety of doing so.

Saw and Handplane restoration #2: Disston D8 - Blade

07-02-2012 08:23 PM by Tokolosi | 7 comments »

I cleaned the sawblade by using a scraper for the grime and surface rust. Then using Naval Jelly and a stiff nylon bristle brush removed the rust. After that it was coated with WD-40 and sanded starting with 220 and progressing through 0000 steel wool. The medallions and screws were cleaned with Barkeepers Friend and polished. Im pretty happy on how it turned out.

Intarsia Basics #6: We are Almost There!!

06-25-2012 01:00 AM by KoryK | 14 comments »

Welcome back and again sorry for taking so long to get this post out. After my hand healed I was really backed up on some other projects. I’m almost caught up and will post some of those projects on my page in the next couple of days. When we left off we had all the sanding done and are ready for staining and finishing. I’m making two of these frogs, one that will need staining and one out of exotic wood so everyone can participate in this project. We will go over staining next. I’m...

Exotic Hardwood

I am delighted i went into McQuillans in Dublin yesterday and got my first piece of exotic hardwood, i got some zebrano (zebra wood) they were selling loads of pieces of exotic harwood in blanks and in little bocks, its around 2 foot long and around 2 inches square. It was the first proper tradesmen shop i had been in, so it was the first shop i had seen with table saws, power planers, bandsaws etc. it was amazing.

My 2 cents on using a Scratch-stock

06-05-2012 03:31 AM by nobuckle | 7 comments »

So i’m in the process of making a till for my hand planes and thought I’d dress it up a bit by applying some moulding to cover the edges of the material I’m using. I had a left over 10’ length of 3/4” x 1/4” trim from a previous job so I decided to use it as the moulding material. As I pondered the project I decided to use my scratch-stock to make the moulding a little more interesting. Long story short, I got out my scratch-stock and went right to work. I ...

My foray into hand tools

05-24-2012 03:54 AM by aselmike | 9 comments »

Up until just recently, I viewed hand tools as inefficient and difficult. It was black magic to me, and I knew no-one who did carpentry with anything but power tools. With much research, I have started to collect the information and possibly the tools necessary to work my way into carpentry sans power! So far I’ve got a small Stanley block plane (pictured), a Bailey no 5, a small dovetail saw with no credentials, and a buck brothers 1/2” chisel. I’ve sharpened the dovetai...

Intarsia Basics #5: Welcome back, Let's Start Adding Spacers and Shaping Our Pieces

05-24-2012 03:01 AM by KoryK | 11 comments »

Thanks for joining in again and I apologize for the delay. Hand is doing a lot better and it feels great to be back in the shop. Thanks for your patience and your encouragement to get better. In this section we will focus on shaping and sanding our pieces. In my opinion, this is the most important part of the process. Depth is what makes a piece really stand out and the more depth you use in your project the better you’re going to like the end result. We have all seen intarsia pieces...
