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...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #7: Fixing mistakes

That’s when I do my best thinking. I got up in the morning and checked the drawing and I was right. The drawing says the mortise...

I have been doing a lot of little things to get ready for glue up. I cut the mortise for the lid latch and fit the escutcheons in the keyholes. The escutcheons came out pretty close to straight up and down and in alignment. drilled and mounted the drawer pulls and handles. Yesterday afternoon put the finish on all of the inside surfaces. Sanded and put a second coat on this morning. I’m using amber shellac on the oak, clear on the Bubinga. About 10:30 this morning I glued up...

For those of you unfamiliar with Shannon Rogers, The Renaissance Woodworker & The Hand Tool School, you find out more here: As I have been re-enamoured (is that a word) with woodworking I find myself being drawn more and more to handwork for a few reasons: 1. It does not require a large amount of space. My area is about half of a half of a two car garage. The wife’s car stays in the garage and my truck stay...

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #8: Finally it is FINISHED!

09-26-2010 10:50 PM by RonPeters | 8 comments »

Ok, I’ve been working on this for about 18 months. A little here and a little there… a piece at a time. It’s finally finished and now I can move on to making instruments. I never built a bench, or anything else – unless you consider that bowl I turned in wood shop 45 years ago? – so there was some learning curve involved. I never: made box joints or drawers, glued up a top, made and installed mortise & tenon’s, installed a vice – let alone two ...
