Pipe Stand #2: Calm Before The Storm

10-17-2012 09:27 PM by Operaman | 7 comments »

Well, time has slipped away and it has been too long since my last blog post. In the interim, thankfully, work has been keeping me hopping and have gotten small projects out of the shop. Also the bandsaw and I had a disagreement and the bandsaw won the day. Thankfully no major damage was done and in a few more weeks I’ll be as right as rain. I have finally finished the poplar mockup and tommorrow the “real thing” begins in earnest. I made all of the changes that I not...

Handcut Dovetail Jewelry Box

10-11-2012 09:35 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 15 comments »

This week I share with you a decorative box which features hand cut dovetail joints. This box is made of Mahogany and Pecan and its center piece being a Spalted Pecan Panel Lid. I am no authority on dovetails joints so I don’t go into a lot of detail on making hand cut dovetail joints. There are a lot of training videos and materials out there to reference off of. I used some of the pecan Which I had milled from free logs delivered to me by a tree service. When I re sawe...

WorkSharp 3000 questions

09-25-2012 04:33 PM by woodmaker | 7 comments »

I need serious help here. I have the aforementioned sharpner and can sharpen my plane irons till I can shave the hair off my arm. I sharpen at 25 degrees then change to 30 for the micro-bevel per the instructions. Yesterday, I was sharpening my 1 1/4” chisel, and could not get it sharp enough to shave an arm hair no matter what! I set the angle at 25 degrees, and then went for a micro-bevel at 30 degrees. What am I doing wrong? Seems if I can do one I should be able to do the o...

Split-cutting tenons

09-20-2012 05:09 PM by Paul Sellers | 15 comments »

I thought that this new YouTube video we did on split-cutting and pare-cutting tenons rather than sawing them would help others to experience an alternative that works really well on most any wood type. I have done it this way for decades now and just realised that I hadn’t shared it as widely as I would like to. Try it in any wood you like and see how it works for you. Some woods, Sapele, ebony, mesquite and such, may not always split straight, but it shows how to cross-grain pare as a...

I Think I May Have Bought a Dollar for a Quarter.

09-05-2012 12:32 AM by Kristoffer | 7 comments »

On our way to get our dogs vaccinated, with my face buried in the latest issue of Wood Magazine, my fiance saw a sign that read “Woodworking Tools for Sale”. After a bit of research, I realized that I bought about $2,000 worth of tools for $590. I picked up a 12” Craftsman band saw, a Craftsman floor model drill press, a 12 1/2” Delta thickness planer and a Delta hallow chisel mortiser. The guy included two extra band saw blades, five different sized mortising chisels ...

Flag Box #5: Base

09-03-2012 07:50 PM by DBoltz | 0 comments »

Last time we got the splines installed and flushed up. Now, we will get the base done. Mortises cut on the base and on the bottom of the flag box using your standard drill press and chisel combo. Here we have the majority of the waste of a mortise hogged out using a forstner bit on the drill press. I just used a handheld drill on the bottom of the flag box. Here you can see the supports with the top tenon. They are just dry in the base with the mortise and tenon. I have the layou...
