If I had it to do all over again.....

1325 days ago by NBeener | 29 comments »

I’m SO new to woodworking that nearly EVERY project has me back at the bottom of some learning curve or another. I rarely get to fall back on skills that I’ve learned well, used often, and perfected. And … when I leave glitches in my projects, making ME think I earned a grade of “B+” or “A-,” I always wonder …. What if I did that project again. Would I get an “A?” So …. I’m making my wife a box, based on the ...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #19: Getting Back on That Sawhorse... (or Table Legs Redux)

1422 days ago by CaptainSkully | 6 comments »

It’s been months since I’ve been able to do any woodworking. I guess being busy in this economy is a good thing. I finally got a couple of days in the shop to address in-progress projects. The biggest was my mental block on the 4-sided quartersawn legs for the dining table. In a previous entry, I discussed how I botched the lock miter joint.

No Chamfer Plane? No Problem.

605 days ago by nobuckle | 4 comments »

I had to chamfer some small frame pieces but didn’t want to simply hold the pieces in my hand and run a block plane over them. Since I don’t have a chamfering plane I had to improvise. Thanks for your time.

Knitting box #6: Twin through tenons

1872 days ago by Luke | 4 comments »

I started by marking out all the cut lines with a marking gauge. I have one of those simple wood pass through another wood with a thumb screw and a little pin, ones… so….I chiseled out the sections in the maple down to the lines after cutting the shoulders with the dovetail saw. I then transfered the tenons to the backside of the zebrawood with the marking gauge again. Then chiseled around the marks and worked on taking out the material with the chisels. A mortiser would be really...

Unusual, but cool looking chamfering plane

862 days ago by iozl | 2 comments »

I came across this today and thought I would share. I don’t know anything about the plane; I do know it looks really cool though and thought some folks might agree. Appears the maker is a David Irwin (no association with Irwin tools I would imagine), and it’s stamped with a Swann-Morton logo, who appear to make surgical instruments. . . . . . . . .
