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...

Work Shop Organization #2: Power Tool Storage Update

01-02-2015 11:14 AM by Nate66 | 3 comments »

After drawing the plans, I went to the store to purchase the lumber to build the storage box. Had to make a few substitutions due to the price of lumber here in England. Instead of using ply, I settled for MDF. Still quite expensive but nothing near the price of ply or pine. Anyway, I will post pictures of the work in progress.

Hand tool revalations #1: the revolution has begun

01-08-2012 03:27 AM by Andrew | 4 comments »

It all started with the purchase of a stanley #48, the tongue and groove plane. I saw it on Roy Underhills show the WoodWright. So it is really his fault. Anyway I have slowly and sometimes quickly started accumulating hand tools. So now its time to use them, I chose to make a table out of Pine for a friend. Pine is soft and should be fairly forgiving of mistakes or improper techniques. This is only the beginning, I figure if I can get comfortable with the hand tools, then future pro...

The Craftsman's Path #22: Queen Anne Side Table - Cutting tenons on the aprons

01-14-2008 05:55 AM by Mark Mazzo | 9 comments »

Well, after milling the stock and making a new tenoning jig for the table saw I was ready to cut the tenons on the aprons of the table. The jig was worth the effort and I was able to do a first dry fit of most the table parts. There’s more info in this post on my blog along with pictures of the new jig and the process. Take a look and thanks for reading!

Simple, Useful, Free

09-03-2012 04:59 AM by TDog | 4 comments »

No I’m not marketing. I’m just amazed at how it’s not the fancy pieces or most expensive pieces that tend to get the most use. I think by far many expensive and or “fancy” if I may, pieces of furniture or any item for that matter does not see as much use as more common items. (Duh you say) :) I am convinced that there is not much peace of mind to be found in in objects that are almost “roped off” in our homes, offices, or studies, workshops even i...

Murphy and I have been rehabbing planes and now attempting to sharpen the plane blades. Watched Stumpy Nubbs video on Scarey Sharp. Good basic stuff but no advice when Murphy decides to get involved. LOL! I’ve checked out Paul Sellers and his YouTube videos on sharpening. I Have a Work sharp. Had it since they first came out. almost wore it out sharpening chisels for two days! One of the planes I’ve been rehabbing is my dad’s old number six. And the width of the bla...

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...

Well after restoring the Clearcut chisels I figured they and the rest of my chisels should have a special place to call home. I took one of the drawers under my workbench and made it my chisel drawer. Check out this little video I titled THE PERFECT FIT. View on YouTube Thank you.
