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 ...

Hand Tool Ramblings #3: The Anarchists Bug Out Box

12-24-2013 04:55 AM by rustythebailiff | 4 comments »

Living here in sunny FLA, we don’t have to worry about ice and snow. But, we do get the occasional tornado. And hurricanes are not unheard of. So, as my hand tool collection has grown over the years, it suddenly occurred to me that if I had to flee from impending natural disaster, it would take me a good hour to gather up my precious hand tools. Now, not to downplay the importance of my power tools, but they are easier to replace than some of my vintage hand tools. So, after watc...

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.

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...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #19: Done!

04-14-2015 02:15 AM by ic3ss | 4 comments »

My morning was taken up entirely by straightening out a snafu with my medical insurance co. and the doctor’s office. What a pain. Sometimes I wonder why I have health insurance. Anyway. . . When I did make it out to the shop, I had this cutoff piece of walnut left over from the leg vise chop that was perfect for the deadman. I’m not really done with it at this point, all I did was rip it and cut to length, cut a rabbet at the top and the V groove at the bottom. It fits right...

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 ...

Wine Rack Expedition #7: The end in sight... yet...

04-02-2009 07:16 AM by Demowen | 4 comments »

Well Folks, I did what I could today. It was a long day of work and hospital visits so shop time was certainly limited to a few hours late into the night. I left a bit of a glue mess on my back assembly last night so I paid the price for it today.Now, that picture was just to show the assembly without clamps, but this one should be better…and some more….I had a few pictures of my lady checking my sanding job but they all were too blurry. She walked around it and made sure I d...
