Big wood find #4: using some of the load.

01-31-2010 06:11 AM by rtb | 7 comments »

I’m not certain but what this should be separate but any way… Before I joined us I thought that workbenches, real workbenches were limited to professional cabinet makes, magazine editors, and hand tool advocates. Having now been exposed to a much wider school of thought I have come to realize that this is not the case and that I too was in need of something of this nature. ( I got tired of moving everything off the table saw every time I needed to make a cut.) I ‘ve spent se...

Built-in bookcases and mantel for fireplace surround in a Tudor Revival

01-28-2010 04:46 AM by Jonathan | 4 comments »

(Please note: I originally posted this earlier today as a forum topic, but then decided to put it in as a blog entry in order to keep all of my entries together. I have also added more information to this posting here.) A year ago Christmas, Santa promised my wife that he’d build built-in bookcases with doors, as well as an adjoining mantel. Well, Santa got busy over the course of that year landscaping most of the yard by laying brick pavers, constructing a couple of raised brick planter b...

old tools box restoration #1: The tool box

01-27-2010 07:32 PM by bern92 | 10 comments »

I juste want to share with you Jocks my little hand tools collection. It was a gift from a old judge who got the tool box of his great grand father who use to build home in 1875 to 1905. He was from Quebec Canada and he participated in building the great resorts in Banff, Lakelouise and all those places in the Rockies. Most of the tools came from that tool box and some i got from friends and garage sale…...here’s the metal plane part a the my tools and one wooden plane. I will pos...

“The English Plane” -by Brian Meeks In a tiny shop north of London townAt a maple bench stood young man proud.Off cobble stone road sat a flower girlA comb in her hair from mother of pearl He’d returned from the war a scar on his faceHe’d flown a camel; they’d called him an Ace.At the museum she’d once spent a dayThe artist she saw was named Claude Monet On way to his shop, each day he passed byHe oft thought of how, he might catch her eyeShe noticed his walk and his hat pulle...

School Projects #1: Wooden Stool

01-17-2010 11:46 PM by L-H Johnsen | 4 comments »

I am currently studying at a school in Sweden where they learn us the art of furniture woodworking. I have always had somekind of interest in wood, but honestly could (to my surprise) extremely little stepping into this Pandrora´s box of tools/woods and measurements. I have chosen to put some of my “projects” up on the worldwideweb, so that at least I can take a look back later and see what I’ve learned.. some kind of manly diary i guess. Our first assignment this last ...

Extremely Average #15: I have just two questions

01-17-2010 12:57 AM by Ecocandle | 11 comments »

“We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment” -Jim Rohn I thought I would spend the day continuing to work on my Krenov saw horses, since I didn’t have any new DVDs or books on woodworking. For those that stopped by hoping to see a rant about John Lively’s company The Taunton Press, you will be disappointed to know that I am too happy today to gripe about their inefficiency. Because Monday is a holiday, I won’t get them be...

Beginning Woodworker Just Starting Out #3: First Handcut Dovetails

01-08-2010 07:55 AM by Jimi_C | 11 comments »

After posting my review of the Grizzly T10010 wet grinder, having a set of nice, hair-shaving sharp chisels (and a freshly shaved hand…), I decided to put them to use. I grabbed some scraps out of my wood bin and started marking out some dovetails. I’ve laid them out several times, and gotten them to the point where the majority of the material was removed from the joint, but I never had a sharp enough chisel to pare them down – I was basically butchering the wood… ...

Extremely Average #5: A Gritty Performance

01-07-2010 06:21 AM by Ecocandle | 4 comments »

It was a gritty performance to say the least. Our hero was struggling with his new wet stone, trying to practice the ancient art of chisel sharpening. The problem was that the wet stone, was, well, wet. The slightest pressure on the chisel and the coefficient of friction would be great enough that the stone would move too. This angered our hero. With a head full of rage and a fair amount of walnut lying around, he set out to put an end to the torment. As some of you may know, if y...

Entertainment Center #4: Dovetails complete

11-26-2009 05:16 AM by Loogie | 4 comments »

I got just enough shop time today to finish up the dovetails on the top & sides of the carcass. Just as I was preparing to start cleaning out the waste between the pins the mail man showed up with an early christmas present. I ordered this sweet dovetail chisel from Czeck Edge while I was at the Woodworking In America conference back in October. It showed up at the perfect time. It worked beautifully to be able to clean out the corners between the tails. Here you can see the...
