Ok, salvaged some parts from an old junk table that was being tossed into the trash. Got four legs, and a couple aprons to use as a pattern. That pile of rusty hardware will be tossed out. As for patterns Might keep them around for other table projects. Laid out the aprons on some walnut Traced them out, and got ready to saw them out All clamped up and ready to saw? not quite, needed a square end to start things better. Handsaw? Well, stay tuned, it will be back in a li...
In this video I talk about how to make repeatable cuts using a stop block and how the miter joints are the best jointey option for the project. I also cut all the 2×4s and start assembly. Now all I did to assembly it was just glueing the divider pieces and screwing them in
In this episode I build a weight organizer for all of the free weights. It only took about 2 hours to build which is not a lot of time. I changed my design 2 times and Im glad I did because my original design would not have worked. I use 2 2×4s and 2 12 in 2×4s for the base.
Great link on how to sharpen and get a “scary” edge, tried it up to 150 grit and it was pretty scary. I don’t want to imagine a few thousand. spoiler: sticky sided sandpaper on glass (for a flat surface) Article by Taunton Press via FineWoodworkinghttp://www.taunton.com/finewoodworking/pages/w00003.asp
When my grandad was a carpenter he worked in Aras an Uachtairain (the irish presidents house), he brought this table home from there one day when he was in his 20’s because it was going to be thrown out, he did some repairs and salvaged it. But after being used for 60 years (which the first governor of ireland wrote on the table) and then being used another 40 years when my grandad got it, it was in pretty bad shape. My granny said i could do what i wanted to do with it, because she had...

So for those of you who read my first post, heres the results! I decided to finish this part tonight because I remembered I am getting my wisdom teeth pulled tommorow morning, so I’ll be out of commision for a bit. I spent about 35 minutes with the Veritas Mk2 jig. I started with the 1000 grit side and moved to the 4000 grit side. At the end I’ll post some pictures of the factory finish that came on the chisels. This is the blade edge at 40X, notice that even when cleane...
So after the discussion that cajunpen initiated on the WS Vs. “other sharpening methods” I decided to take some pictures of my new Irwin chisels using my metallrugical microscope. I also checked the angle that my Veritas Mk2 gauge put on the chisels as well. In case you aren’t familiar with the Veritas Mk2 gauge (see here for blog entry). It clamps the blade and adjusts both the angle of the main workhead and uses a colored sliding gauge to set the angle. Now I was fairly...
