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...
Here’s one of a gentleman that wanted one of his youth to give to his Mother. He has a lot of feeling for her.
I should start showing the beginning picture of my burnings so you can see what I work off of. OK I made a mistake, I did not take a picture before I started this burning so I hope you will be able to see the before and after. Here is a couple that has asked me to burn this as a special momenta. Trying to get the right picture done as a pattern isn’t that easy and sometimes it turns out the first few times. this one took about six time of reprinting. I do go through a lot of in...
Ok Here goes. I have put this off for about two weeks. It has taken me about 9 hours to get it to this point. People thinks that the woodburning they done in high schools is same as what I do. After selecting the picture there is hours pending trying to get the picture just right to transfer everything over to the piece of wood. after you put it on the wood I spend a lot of time going over and over to get the right depth. so with out further ado I give you the DAGON FLY. (OK I AM GOING...
Queue is getting too long.
I decided to make a card scraper out of a thinner material using a handsaw from a yard sale for $1. I can tell a big difference in the flex from the handsaw blade and the table saw blade. I’ll be using both for a bit and seeing which one I like better. Click here for the video on YouTube. And please subscribe. Edit: I can’t embed video on here at the moment, I will keep trying.
THROW YOUR SANDPAPER AWAY!!! Ok, so don’t throw your sandpaper away, but cut down on the amount of dust in your shop by making this quick and easy tool. A card scraper is also very useful when working around knots in wood. In this video I show you how to take an old, out of service saw blade and turn it into something useful again. Thanks for viewing, comments welcome, and as always, please subscribe to my Youtube Channel.
Made some pretty good progress in the shop after I got home this evening. When I have a better network connection I will fill in more details.
Forrest WWII, Infinity Super General, Ridge Carbide TS2000, Freud Fusion, and Tenryu Gold Medal are all great saw blades. It’s hard to go wrong with any of them if you’re willing to plunk down $80-$130. Try getting a good blade with a budget in the $10-$40 range, and the odds of getting a good one fall dramatically. No need to despair….for those who missed out on the great Leitz/Irwin, Leitz/Delta, Onsrud, Delta 7657, and CMT clearance deals in recent years, below is list of current deals tha...
