I had $30 Amazon rewards, so I ordered these: My woodworking budget is nil, so I was looking for something cheap and decent that I could learn with and I decided on these after reading reviews on several different brands. The reviews on are pretty good, but not so good in other places. I also read somewhere else that these were decent starter chisels after they’ve been sharpened. It’s funny how on one of the pictures of these shows “Sheffield ...

Old Chisel Rehab

07-11-2012 12:03 PM by llwynog | 20 comments »

Several months ago, I bought a few old chisels and sharpened them up. Among them I found this sorry fellow : Having a sharp chisel is nice but having one you can grip is better so I decided to try my home-made pole/bungee lathe ( to make myself a new handle. The old handle came off without issue : Then I sawed off a brass plumbing coupler to make a ferule… Planed a chunk of plum (mirabelle) tree to rough dimensions… ...

Traditional Tajik Woodcarving

07-10-2012 01:45 AM by JoshOne | 6 comments »

Soon after I arrived in Tajikistan, I started noticing impressive examples of hand-carved ornamentation on doors, gates, signs, and crown moulding all over the capital and beyond. When I went to the Tajik Museum of Antiquities and saw similar carvings that came out of excavations from the time of Alexander the Great, I knew this needed further examination. I wanted to talk to some craftsmen. Today I got into a cab today and asked the driver if he knew of a workshop. He made some calls and...

Roubo Bookstand ~ Part One

07-02-2012 09:54 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 12 comments »

The Roubo bookstand. It is one piece that truly fascinates me. Why? Perhaps it is the wooden hinge or the fact that the entire piece is made from one section of wood. The curves and the overall shape give it a look the outdoes anything with metal hardware. They are fun to make and a joy to look at. For this project I did not want to rush and make a mistake, so I am splitting it over two days. I picked out my last piece of mahogany and packed some tools and headed off. Now to make the Roubo...
