My Great-Grandfather’s Lathe Chisels

05-10-2012 09:49 PM by JoshOne | 10 comments »

Last week for my birthday I got a rather remarkable present from my grandparents: my great grandfather’s Craftsman lathe chisels. My great-grandfather died in 1974, well before I met him, and they passed to my grandfather. He is a consummate craftsman and artist and through the early 90s owned a lumber yard in Yardley, PA. I feel tremendously lucky to be from a line of craftsmen and to have inherited the proof. These chisels have now passed to me, and to be honest I’m a little conflict...

Wood Scrap Box #1: Parts and Pieces

01-17-2008 09:19 PM by CutNRun | 4 comments »

Two days before Christmas, my wife casually mentions that she would like a jewelry box. Hmmm, don’t think the timing was very good. Having completed the 2×4 project, I decided to try to put together a jewelry box from the small pieces of wood laying around in my shop. I had a decent amount of 1/2” cherry, some figured maple, some oak, and a small amount of paduk. After spending a few days laying out a design and seeing if I had enough wood, I started cutting and gluing.Th...

Big wood find #5: The base comes together

02-06-2010 07:01 AM by rtb | 6 comments »

I probably should have updated this about a week ago but the best laid plans of mice….etc . Drilling 5/8 holes through 1 in of white oak 3 in. cherry and an additional 1 in. of red oak is not something that you can whip out in 45 seconds. You are constantly removing the bit to clear the hole of the waste and there are many holes in this base. This assembly is still quite rough and there will be a lot of sanding and planning once its all together. As the above picture sh...

My New (old) Lathe

11-22-2012 10:29 PM by milbert | 7 comments »

With a lot of free time on my hands these days I decided to move into the dangerous and addictive land of woodturning. I’ve been dying to get a lathe now for about 3 years and trolling Craigslist (I’m on a college budget). I finally found a great deal on an old Craftsman so I decided to jump on it! After I got it, I spent a couple hours cleaning and making sure everything moved like it was supposed to. I ran into one problem which was the motor has a slight bend in the shaf...

I Think I May Have Bought a Dollar for a Quarter.

09-05-2012 12:32 AM by Kristoffer | 7 comments »

On our way to get our dogs vaccinated, with my face buried in the latest issue of Wood Magazine, my fiance saw a sign that read “Woodworking Tools for Sale”. After a bit of research, I realized that I bought about $2,000 worth of tools for $590. I picked up a 12” Craftsman band saw, a Craftsman floor model drill press, a 12 1/2” Delta thickness planer and a Delta hallow chisel mortiser. The guy included two extra band saw blades, five different sized mortising chisels ...

Dovetail Toolchest

03-19-2015 08:23 PM by Gbluee | 1 comment »

I needed an upgrade in my shop for my Lutherie tools and I didn’t want to get those pricy steel tool box to go in my woodworking environment. So I sat down at my drawing table and tried to come up with something to accommodate my need, at a reasonable price, and made of wood. I made this tool chest with only 4 boards of 8’x6”x1” of black Walnut. I always love the Idea of not using screws and/or nails, therefore I made a Dovetail construction. The entire construction was completed in 4 mont...

CLAMP FOR MY BIESMEYER FENCE UNDER CONSTRUCTION

03-27-2012 01:07 AM by Metrotek | 1 comment »

Greetings to all once again; I am attaching photos of the clamp for my new Biesmeyer style fence that is under construction. It came out fairly well.The circular pads are adjustable by carriage bolts threaded in to t-nuts to correct any undesired angularity. The ¾” dowel is a plunger that the cam pushes to lock the fence in place. The two piece pad that the dowel pushes will have an elastomer sandwiched between the pieces to provide a spring action so the cam can over clamp it...

My daughter has been making some progress on the pie safe. She has gotten it almost to where you can tell what it is going to be. She has finished punching one of the panels and is working on another. I have a question, are there anyShe has finished punching one of the panels and is working on another. I would love to hear some ideas. By the way, the panel was punched using a sharpened nail and a hammer. I thought it came out good. We opted for a bread box opening ...
