Chisel metal strength

11-28-2012 12:16 PM by DouginVa | 10 comments »

I’ve been practiciing hand cut dovetails recently and before I started out I wanted to make sure my Mifer chisels were at their sharpest. I have a WorkSharp 3000 and have always been happy with it but I thought I’d try to give my chisels a hand sharpened mirror finish and a micor-bevel on some wet stones (8000 grit). I was very pleased with the hand sharpened edges at a 30 degree bevel, except that after chopping out some dovetails on cherry and pine I noticed the nice crisp s...

My New (old) Lathe

11-22-2012 10:29 PM by milbert | 7 comments »

With a lot of free time on my hands these days I decided to move into the dangerous and addictive land of woodturning. I’ve been dying to get a lathe now for about 3 years and trolling Craigslist (I’m on a college budget). I finally found a great deal on an old Craftsman so I decided to jump on it! After I got it, I spent a couple hours cleaning and making sure everything moved like it was supposed to. I ran into one problem which was the motor has a slight bend in the shaf...

Making the Podcast Rounds

11-13-2012 04:27 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 7 comments »

Hey guys – I was a guest on a couple of podcasts last week (I am way behind on timely blog entries.) First, I joined LJ member Marc Spagnuolo at the WoodWhisperer Guild. You need to be a member to access this podcast where we talk about doing built-ins. We cover several of the techniques, strategies and things to look for as you design and install a built-in project. If you are on the fence about if you should join the Guild or not, I will say that as a person that makes my living...

Shop & Tool Growing Pains #2: Shop Bench & Storage

10-23-2012 04:48 PM by pendledad | 8 comments »

With a small arsenal of tools from my estate sale scavenging, I needed a place to work on projects and get the tools off the garage floor. I was originally going to build the “Getting Started in Woodworking” bench from FWW, but I decided that a more typical garage bench would be better suited. I needed something easy to build, and solid as a rock. I wanted a 2’ deep surface and I wanted to take up 1/2 of the back wall. My wife has given me 1/2 of the garage because she...

Steam Bending #4: My First Bending Project is Completed!

10-19-2012 10:57 PM by Retsof | 3 comments »

The Nets are done and I’m really pleased with how they came out, this being my first attempt at steam bending or building my own net frames. Two of them will make nice gifts for my Dad and my Brother. Net#1: Walnut and Alder Hoop with a Walnut Handle. The inside diameter of the hoop is 9”x14” with an overall length of 21.5”. One of my hand made fly fishing lanyards is on the table behind the net. I fish with a lanyard to hold my fly fishing tools rather tha...

Steam Bending #3: Steam Bending Trout Fishing Nets: Shaping and Finishing

10-18-2012 02:11 AM by Retsof | 2 comments »

It’s been a while since I posted my last update on this project and I’ve made a lot of progress. Once I got the basic shaping and sanding done, I had to stop until I found the net bags that I wanted to use on the frames. As of this week, I have everything I need to finish the nets, so here are some more photos to show you what I’ve done so far: Here is net #2 after bending, but before glue up. This photo gives a good look at how I pegged my circles to the melamine ba...
