I decided at the very start of my woodworking adventures to keep close track of any injuries I managed to incur, in part out of curiosity—knowing that it’s a hobby notorious for its danger, at least in comparison to most other hobbies—and in part because I want to identify where I go wrong, so I can address the problematic action(s).So far, I’m up to 13 cuts. Of these, the breakdown by source is as follows: 1, flush-cut saw. 1, paint scraper. 1, bow saw. 1, ch...
well here is the second to last entry in my pull out trash box series. this will cover the rest of the construction and the next entry will cover the finished project. so lets jump right in. i left off with the rest of the thing prefinished and showing the drawer in it. just milled up the drawer front. and finished and attached it. simple enough. the drawer bottom isn’t in yet and you might notice that the color is a bit different. thats because the gel poly isn’t on yet. ...
This comode is from 18th century and is made (the structure) in lime wood. The marquetry work is made in rose wood, box wood, mahogany from Honduras, walnut and satin wood. The finish was made with shellac.
Cole jaws arrived today. So it was off to the garage to finish the salt cellar. All in all I’m very pleased. Only a few things irk the perfectionist in me. 1) A line on the lip on the underside of the lid. Must have gotten a little reckless with the skew chisel or something. 2) There’s some tear out on the knob at it’s largest diameter. I don’t remember getting any catches while doing this part, but I guess anything’s possible. Or maybe I can just say it...
After posting my review of the Grizzly T10010 wet grinder, having a set of nice, hair-shaving sharp chisels (and a freshly shaved hand…), I decided to put them to use. I grabbed some scraps out of my wood bin and started marking out some dovetails. I’ve laid them out several times, and gotten them to the point where the majority of the material was removed from the joint, but I never had a sharp enough chisel to pare them down – I was basically butchering the wood… ...
Well… Where to start? Well I haven’t posted at all about the crib, because this is the first time I could feel like I could. There was a lot of complications with the pregnancy. My wife had to have enutero surgery on her placenta before the girls were born. And they were born pretty early. The girls are still in the NICU, but doing great! The doctors could not be happier about their progress. Their names are Emma and Lily. On my last blog, I finished the the tenons. Then I mov...

Just looking for general knowledge on woodworking ive done a few things before but never anything too inte...
Hello all, First of all, I am a woodworking nob. It is a hobby that I’ve found very relaxing. Over the weekend I’ve ran into a number of hand planes and could not resist. I got a Stanley Bailey no 8c, Miller Falls no 18B, Stanley Bailey no 6, Craftsman no 5 size, unknown no 5 size, new Stanley no 4, Stanley no 110 block plane, and a set of Stanley no 60 butt chisels. All of this for the price of $123. A couple plane needs work but most are producing nice shavings. I don...
i buy it for 2 dollars at a flea market.is an Erik Anton Berg Chisel, i read is a good one.
The mortises were done so the next step was to shape the base. I cut the outline of the curves first with a saw then shaped with the spokeshave. It is so nice on endgraing when it is sharp. The end result is very smooth and the shavings chocolate shavings from a cake. It feels great when it is properly set up, it makes quick work of the curves, even on end grain Then I cleaned the parts a bit with the number 6. Does a great job. Next I cut the notches for the 2 c...
