How to Make a Pad Saw (for cutting into a board face)

110 days ago by WoodAndShop | 6 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) In the above Video I show how I made a simple (and cheap) “Pad Saw”, sometimes referred to as a “Keyhole Saw”. I was building the simple, yet amazing Roubo Bookstand featured by Roy Underhill in this episode of The Woodwright’s Shop (click here for the video episode). But I didn’t own a pad saw, and I also found some missing details in Roy’s tutorial. So I decided to make my own pad saw with a scrap of poplar (you can use any wood) and...

Low budget + low skill = sharp chisels

153 days ago by Lukas | 0 comments »

There is no discussion about the fact that sharp tools are a must in woodworking but when it comes to the methods of sharpening or the quality of tools necessary, the fight is on. Be it sharpening by hand or with a sharpening station that raises the value of your house by 20%, a newcomer in tool sharpening can easily get confused. I too worried for a long time that without serious investment in both extreme high quality tools and the corresponding sharpening implements I would be doomed to us...

Cane With Character

173 days ago by Pooka | 0 comments »

I jumped the back fence several months ago. We have a canyon out there and there is a lot of deadfall and detritus that I like to rummage through for odds and ends that might make interesting additions to my project list. The last adventure uncovered this length of acacia which I thought might make a neat cane. It’s very hard wood, so carving it has taken a lot of hours. Obviously, the thing can’t get chucked up on my lathe, so I took some killer grinding bits to it with my ...

mitre jig

219 days ago by dclark1943 | 14 comments »

Recently Big Al, i.e. “Boxguy” posted a jig he had built for cutting accurate mitre joints. I built one this afternoon, and thought I would share my attempt at making the same jig. Total cost for the jig was around $17.00 – - the all in one clamp. The time was 2 1/2 hours. MDF remnants, left over material from other projects, and junk drawer parts finished it to this point. Still have to finish up the stop system, but was anxious to use it today, so will add the stop tom...

Handplane Performance Tuning #3: Chip Breakers & Cap Irons

219 days ago by OSU55 | 3 comments »

Cap iron or chip breaker, blade or iron – Some folks write treatises about which term is “correct”. I use the one that comes to mind, they mean the same thing. Chip Breaker Function The chip breaker adds mass to the blade and adds stiffness to the blade, and with the lever cap pushing down, seats breaker & blade flat on the frog, creating more blade stiffness (cap iron). A very important, but lesser known, function of the chip breaker is to create a force down the chip fibers as the...

Works in Progress #2: Humidor test build - first pics

224 days ago by Jerry | 1 comment »

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...
