Piping Up #3: When all else fails, chisel

27 days ago by sylinen | 0 comments »

I’d finished roughing out the stummel of the pipe on the bandsaw and I moved on to rounding off the rough edges. My first approach was to stick the 12” disc sander on the Shopsmith and go to town. Since the lathe was out of commission, I thought this was my next best option. I’d seen videos on YouTube and it seemed fairly straightforward. What quickly became apparent was that such a large, rigid disc was not going to give me the fine detail I wanted. It worked fine for round...

Building a Moving Fillister Plane #1: Precursor and laminating the body

27 days ago by Wally331 | 4 comments »

Intro- I’ve been using a lot of wooden planes recently and have really come to enjoy their lightness and the feel of wood sliding on wood. Obviously there are a ton of vintage woodies out there; however, I quite enjoy making my own versions of them. They are a lot cheaper (if you have some time on your hands) and you don’t have to deal with old warped wood and a host of other problems you may encounter. I can’t say I am an expert by any means, I’m simply sharing my...

Workshop Projects #8: My Summers Woodworking 2x4 competition entry

47 days ago by Serradura | 4 comments »

Oh well, it was difficult to find a 2×4 in Portugal but… in the end we found two 2×2’s which we used to make little side / plant / coffee /ashtray tables. It’s all about making something out of a 2×4 by 8ft. (about 10×5x244) for the Summers Woodworking annual Creative 2×4 Competition. It all started with the idea of making a little high table (to put a flowerpot on) but during the process proportions didn’t seem wright.So we did what eve...

Jewelry Case Build #3: Rip Panels and Rabbet Insides

60 days ago by RoadHogg | 0 comments »

I got a little time to work on the jewelry case this week so I ripped some of the little panels to proper width then I ran a rabbet around the inside of each one. Three will get glass inserts, one will get a mirror and one will get a walnut panel. The rabbets are 1/4” x 1/4”. I then squared the corners with a chisel. Off they go to the glass shop.

My Daily Users

69 days ago by reedwood | 3 comments »

.. Every time I visit Woodcraft, I always look at and admire the nice selection of Pheil carving chisels, the Crown rosewood handled chisels, the Lee Nielsen and Robert Sorby lathe chisels and bench sets, The sweet heart Stanley 9 pc. chisel set with leather roll case. Even the Wood River chisel sets in a case looked nice and seemed like a good value. . . I recently purchased Bailey’s wood handled chisel set on sale online for 69.00 and free shipping. They l...

Carving a small spoon

85 days ago by filiplaw | 3 comments »

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 ...
