Extremely Average #23: The English Plane

01-25-2010 02:52 AM by Ecocandle | 9 comments »

“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...

Design Concepts #1: Custom Stationary Tool Cabinet

11-19-2009 11:44 PM by Unskilled | 0 comments »

I was tempted for a long time to create a tool cabinet like I’ve seen in many books and magazines (Shopnotes’ ‘Heirloom Toolbox’ comes to mind), but wasn’t prepares for such a daunting task immediately since I am a new woodworker. I then decided that I really like my Snap-On knockoff tool cabinet, so I have considered an alternate design to hold a very specific set of tools. So specific in fact, that I plan on french-fitting every tool in every drawer aside fro...

End Table - Prototype #1: Prototype for upcoming Television Stand

11-16-2009 09:09 AM by Sleff | 1 comment »

So I’ve been planning on building a decent mahogany tv stand for about a year now. I drew up numerous plans and picked out tons of wood from my old stockpile. I had the dimensions down so that it would fit my (much too large and heavy) old school tvas well as 3 peripherals right at the top. Also lots of storage below for whatever. Work became unbelievably busy last year, as well as my wife getting pregnant and my twinswere born 7 months ago. Wow. So needless to say I didn̵...

My Hand Tool Journey #1: The Journey Begins

11-12-2009 11:20 PM by Kent Shepherd | 21 comments »

stefang offered a challenge the other day for us to create a blog on hand tool use. That was good timing, because it’s been on my mind for some time now. This will be a series in several parts—I don’t yet know how many. If you are lucky, I will have the sense to know when to quit. If not—Well, I suppose you may stop reading and go do something worthwhile—Like work in your shop. I hope you stick around. As I’ve stated before, I grew up working in my Dad...
