It came in the mail the other day, so I contacted Terry Desilets of CUSTOM BRANDING IRONS. I decided to order a custom design, instead of the stock. Terry was very helpful in helping me design my brand. He’s seems like a very good person to do business with. I sent him my signature, & he made a couple of design layouts of for me to choose from. I chose the design I liked the best, & sent my order in. He said I should receive it in a couple of weeks. SO NO...
I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.
In the doors there are small 1/16” kerfs added . To achieve this I considered to make the door in layers but eventually I bought a Pheil cutting knife from 1/32” (1 mm) and curved it into the wood. Maybe 1/16 would have be a better width. Please let me know. There are also 1/16” (2mm) cutting knives. Benefit of this knives is that the knive widht almost automatic will be the kerf width. You may not believe me but in real it looks better than on the picture. ...
I had a small piece of pine laying around and a free afternoon so I decided to carve another spoon. I wanted it to be small (somewhere between a teaspoon and a tablespoon) and simple in shape. I traced around some plastic spoon I had in my kitchen and altered the handle shape a bit. With the outline ready I went to work. I made some stop-cuts with a saw and bashed out the waste with a 20mm chisel. I also did the same to the underside since the stock was way too thick for a spoon.I find ...
My son asked me to make him a chess set. I used his request as a long awaited excuse to buy a lathe and learn to turn wood. This chess set was my first experiment. There are 7 videos so far in the series.

I Finally got some time to work on the Bench today ! woo hoo ! I scraped and sanded the top and bevelled the bottom half of the seat, I did it all manually with a smoother planer, block planer, and a japanese saw. The supports for the Cross braces for the Beams turned out nice, I love to do it by hand, it is so much fun! and it looks really nice, pictures tomorrow. I am building the Cross beams right now and I am not to sure about the design yet, I like it but it’s just not complete to ...
One of the things missing on this site is making knife scales. This is not something I normally do but I bought my wife some knives that required scales and during the process, noticed that we had several knives where the handles looked like crap, were cracked, and even broken. Some of them had really good blades and some were junk (these were tossed). During this process, the knives that I bought from Woodcraft have really nice blades but the rivets were less than desirable, sam...
