Just cut into these Saturday 25th!Just beautiful!!!
When I was slabbing it you could definately smell the walnut but it was different from the Claro and English. These have great dark black lines that are marbled. Beautiful white sap wood and hart wood. These are pics of some of the slabs. Cutting Wood Is A Blast!!!
An update only because getting the drawers built is taking so long and is fixin’ to take awhile longer because shop time is giving way to quality family time. For The Big Drawer, I’ve worked side dovetails by marking for thickness and depth… Then worked the half-blind pins … And stuck it in place, without a bottom, just because I was ready to see progress! Five drawers to document in a future post, and I’m trying some different assembly methods ...
Hi, Just read about this mobile woodshop. I think this is a great idea to keep kids engage and keep interest in the trade alive in the younger generation. This is a great idea. http://willieswoodshop.com/ Insert from his website… Welcome to Willie’s Woodshop Since 1985, Stephen Willner (Willie) has been working in a classroom and credentialed by state of California , teaching basic woodworking skills to children. He is now moving to his classroom to a converted ...
Got these for fathers day yesterday, i’ve heard people say that there not “real” marples but honestly i don’t know what “real” ones are….. Can’t wait to make the scarry sharp and put them to work…..
Figured I would start a new series related to tool making. I recieved Fine Woodworking yesterday and I noticed that there is an article/video on making and using a simple Scratch stock. This is another one of those items that has been on my build list for a while. Additionally there is an article on how to make a dove tail marker out of brass and some chisels for refining dove tails. The chisels look like they are right up Mads alley. The chisels are made from Hock Marking Knife bl...
This is on special at Peachtree Woodworking right now for 50% off ($42.59, reg $84.99). http://www.ptreeusa.com/edirect_060311.htmAnyone have one of these and or has anyone used them? I’m thinking of buying the Ci1 & Ci0, in the un-handled version, (based on reviews here at LJ) and thought these handles might be a step UP? I guess the real question is, a handle is a handle, right? OR, once you buy a handle (or 2) then you can purchase future chisles in the un-handled version an...
I finally made a honey dipper. It’s got a bit of blow out around the honey groves. I think that not only did the lack of an appropriate parting tool hurt this spot, but the generally poor quality wood was against me too. It’s also much too big for a proper honey dipper in my opinion. But whatever, I made a honey dipper. I finished it with a canned butcher block finish oil. I think I’ll coat it with a beeswax/mineral oil finish later too. Unfortunately, I’m comin...
You’ve heard of spot welding, as applies to metal? Well, the partitions in this cabinet are spot-glued, specifically with a brushed-out dab of glue at the leading edges of each. That should allow for movement with the seasons without cracking. The partitions ride in matched dadoes that must be lined up right and drawn tight between four large panels that are glued at the dovetailed corners. Oh, and the back panel floats completely in grooves in the side panels with a ‘button dowel’ at top ...
Some month ago i bought some japanese chisels (Chu-Gata Nomi, Bench Chisels) I Was very happy with them even the handels are yellow and not so nice(dont like yellow) The blade is two layer stell and its the most sharp chisels i ever had tryed. But then suddenly i saw that all of them hat a crack more or less. It was betwen the blade and the handel. That made me very sad since i had paid a lot of money for them and wanted them for a long time. So i wrote a mail to DICK-mehr-als-...
