Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #3: Mortising the old fashioned way and a first panel glue-up

07-19-2014 06:43 PM by CharlesA | 1 comment »

We’ve continue on in the project. After crosscutting his first board by hand—getting him comfortable with hand sawing—He did a some rough crosscuts on the miter saw and some finer ones with the crosscut sled on the table saw. Here is his first cut on the miter saw. His commitment to doing the cuts safely is really comforting. The box has a small divided shelf held in place by mortises in the box. We’re doing them the old-fashioned way so he can learn to use ch...

Repairing Woodworking Chisels with Blacksmith Bruce Dembling

07-12-2014 06:56 PM by WoodAndShop | 8 comments »

My friend Dr. Bruce Dembling recently invited me to his small blacksmith shop in Charlottesville, Virginia. In the above video you’ll see how he repaired several problems on my old antique woodworking chisels. These blacksmith chisel repairs included: 1. Fusing a broken chisel blade: 2. Removing the “mushroom” from a socket chisel: 3. Cutting off the end of an irreparable chisel fracture: This video isn’t meant to be a full tutorial of blacksmith work, but an...

The Simpler Life

07-11-2014 05:38 PM by TDog | 0 comments »

Well, As I work towards finishing a run of Adirondack chairs I’ve chosen to put the power tools aside for a while except for needed home repairs. It’s time to simplify. Time to quiet down my woodworking. I want to focus on building larger pieces 99% to 100 by hand. I’m still debating on the table saw issue. Time for creative challenges instead of obsessive production, stress, and the shrills of power tools all day. My new goals are larger historic furniture piece...

Piping Up #3: When all else fails, chisel

06-13-2014 06:50 PM 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

06-12-2014 10:46 PM 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

05-24-2014 09:43 AM 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

05-11-2014 05:29 AM 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.

Carving a small spoon

04-16-2014 04:10 PM 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 ...
