Marking Gauge #1: Getting started

03-13-2012 06:03 PM by Chuck | 1 comment »

While sorting through the free wood I picked up last week I had the idea to make marking gauge and set a few pieces of walnut aside for it. I cut out the marking gauge with the band saw and then planed the faces smooth. I used a drill and cleared most the waste before chiseling out the mortise for the beam to go through. It needs a little fine tuning on the fit. I am going to have to make sure that the beam is square with both faces I plan on using a xacto knife blade instead of th...

Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #5: Triumphal Finish, A Long Entry

07-24-2014 12:04 AM by CharlesA | 1 comment »

My nephew didn’t want any more pics to go up until he had a chance to show it to his mother and grandmother (my sister), so I haven’t posted any update. However, since today was return to home day, all may be revealed. After finishing the main box, he cut and glued four cleats to the underside of the top. He clamped up the front and back cleats first, and then snuck up on the length of side cleats. They fit perfectly. I guess I didn’t take any pictures of him cuttin...

My workshop machinery, tools & accessories

02-14-2011 11:48 PM by steliart | 18 comments »

Since I cannot at this moment show my workshop as I am in search of a space, even though I have bought the machines and still in boxes. What I can do is to show the photos of my machines, some of the tools & accessories, don’t have photos for everything. <div></div>

My first homemade "prototype" non-functional handplane (i.e. my new paperweight)

11-05-2013 06:44 AM by siavosh | 6 comments »

The desire to make my first hand plane came out of my desire to fix my shooting board. It’s an essential item in my tiny apartment workshop, but shortly after making it, I realized it wasn’t accurate enough. The back beam of the shooting board was not a perfect 90 degrees, but it was off enough to make an impact especially for stock wider than a couple inches. To make tapered shavings of the beam to compensate for my flawed build, I needed some type of shoulder plane. I wasn...

Finger Joints, my way #1: Making finger joints....

03-09-2017 06:50 PM by bandit571 | 7 comments »

Also known as Box Joints. Not saying this is the “perfect” way to do these, but, this is how I do them. First off, I get the four sides all milled to size. Nice when they are the same width and thickness So, for this little “How to”, I have these Pine boards. I made them about 3/8” thick, and all are about 3-1/2” wide.Boards can be about any size, but they need to be close to the same size no matter how thick or wide they are. I start with t...

Fulton 18" Lathe Chisle Handle

06-07-2011 03:47 PM by WoodArtbyJR | 2 comments »

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...

Messed up chisels: Or how I learned to stop worrying and Love the grinder

04-11-2009 09:39 PM by marcb | 4 comments »

I picked up a couple old chisels recently and last weekend got off my butt and for the first time used the power grinder to get an initial angle on them. I’m an old woodworking machine guy, but I have a newish little Craftsman grinder. I don’t have any fancy white wheels a nice stand with a cup for quenching or a super deluxe tool rest. I just plugged it in and got to work. This is the first time I ever ground an edge on a power tool of any kind. So if I can do it, anyone c...
