Sharpening Chisels episode introduces two ways to sharpen chisels. ; With the help of Steve from Wood Working for Mere Mortals we explore these methods
I am still milling lumber, trying to get everything ready for some joinery. Once I get one side flat, I mark it “Flat”. That just helps me keep track of who’s where as I work the pieces and parts. Here is one of the birdseye maple shelves that I glued up then hand planed one side flat, mostly, and is now ready to be taken down to its final thickness. Sorry this picture is a little blurry but you can see how flat the wood is. Just so you can see the results of my swea...
It’s time to glue up the panels that are needed. I’m making a frame and panel as the back of the clock that will consist of 2 panels stacked on top of each other, held in place by the 3 horizontal rails and 2 vertical stiles. So I’ll need 2 panels for the back. Here’s one of those. Note the carpenter’s triangle that I use to keep the parts aligned. I have already glued the bottom two pieces together but we’ll walk through the rest of making this one. ...
This should actually be Part 2 of the series, sorry. After that swich, I’ll have the rest of them correct. I have to start milling my stock. Here’s the stile and rails for the front and back of the clock. The sides are solid pieces that I’ll glue up later from 2 boards. For now, I’ve got work to do. I’m starting on a rail to get warmed up. Here I am checking to see where I am off. Now I’ll get it flat on one side. Next up is flattening one side ...
Sorry Lumberjocks, this was intended to be part one. I’ve got it straight from here on. My eldest daughter is getting married! They got engaged Summer, 2010 and the wedding is planned for Sept. 17, 2011. I told them I’d like to make them something special as a wedding from my wife and me. This is what we all agreed would be a great gift. Never mind that I haven’t done anything in Arts & Crafts Style and that this is my reference, Bruce Johnson’s book on The ...
Hide Glue Wash Mix for Cherry I read somewhere that a thinned Hide glue wash was at one time used as a preconditioned to cure blotching so have taken 2oz of Titebond Liquid Hide Glue and mixed it with 12 oz of water as a second test. The reason also for choosing the liquid hide was it was more transparent vs being a cloudy white when mixed with water and this I felt would dry more transparent. Anyway, I sanded my sample board with 220 as prep, applied a liberal coat of the hide glue was...
Ok here we go. If you look back to the Beginning most of the walls were up but still lots to be done. This first shot is ater the exterior was completed, my litle truck and my other pal, Ivy. Overall size 24’ x 36’ with a full second floor. Two oversized doors 8’6” x 10’ for deliveries etc. and lots of natural light with oversized windows. My wife and I unload the trucks and push the wood up to the second floor. The next shots are of the second f...
I have been grabbing an hour here and there letting things like the grass slide (I am going to do it when I finish this post). I have 6 boxes well on there way, pieces cut for another 9, and that takes care of most of Christmas. Here are a few pics of my progress so far. I have used a lot of different woods and think that most are listed in early post in this thread. I hope to be able to post some of them completely finished soon. As with all things, time will tell. !https://s3.am...

So I have finally finished most of the remodel. Just a few more loose ends to tie up. So I have found a few hours to get into the shop. This is what i have so far. Once again I have to thank Andy., for I am using his style palm boxes. I wanted to give them a spin. I am also taking inspiration from his art boxes with the grinding. I don’t have a sanding disc for my angle grinder, plus these boxes only have 3/8 inch sides so I am using drum sanders. Both on a drill press and in my...
