Treadle Lathe workbench #4: The frame continues....

04-01-2009 01:12 AM by jth2bmtsu | 1 comment »

Working with reclaimed wood is rewarding but can be a real challenge. This particular wood is so hard, I broke a drill bit and got multiple screws stuck in the wood. Oh well, at least a tree wasn’t cut down for this project, yet! Today, I started some assembly. Check out my work. I also wanted to add another picture of the concrete portion of the flywheel for your review. I think I resolved the sizing issue. I was able to weigh the flywheel today and it weighed right at 80lbs.

The Bar #1: The Bar to man cave

11-29-2014 09:58 AM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

11 months ago it was decided we would have new years on our new deck that was only built a month before. So we decided on the spur of the moment to build a bar From there the bar seems to have taken on a life of its own. It no longer an out door bar, it is fully enclosed and water proofed... which in it self was a challenge once was water proofed we got power added so the bar fridge and TV, lights and accessories. The french doors we made at my work and got them installed once they went up...

Clearcut Chisels Restoration

08-04-2015 01:32 AM by Jorgearaujo | 7 comments »

Well it’s official I am hooked… restoring old tools is my new obsession. This time I found some old chisels, Clearcut brand, ever heard of it? Me either. I also couldn’t find much information on the brand online, I did find one post that mentioned they are from Montgomery Ward but I can’t be sure of that. No matter the steel feels good. Guess we will see if it holds an edge. I also shot a video of the restoration which can be viewed here.View on YouTube As you can ...

Triple Chaos #1: A CBG Called Amália, the making of

12-22-2014 09:00 PM by Serradura | 4 comments »

Well, technically it’s not a cigar-box guitar because the (new) box was made for 3 small sample bottles of booze, Port to be precise. The name Amália has everything to do with a Portuguese Fado-guitar being the inspiration for this build. More detailed pictures on Triple Chaos

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #18: Top flattening, parts 1 and 2

04-13-2015 03:49 AM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

I didn’t write the final post last week as I was pretty busy with my 20th wedding anniversary. Last weekend I had planned on flattening the tops on my last day off but only got half of it done. I had decided to use the router to flatten it, using a sled and rails. I saw the technique on the Wood Whisperer video and thought it was a good idea. So I went to the big box and got two 2×6 kiln dried 8’ long boards for the rails. The first thing it to make the edges straight and ...

Shop Notes #14: Me and Murphy figuring out how to sharpen my plane blades!

12-29-2014 01:15 AM by DocSavage45 | 5 comments »

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...

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...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #11: A chop is born

03-23-2015 11:21 PM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

Today was a light day for me as I’m running out of things I can do until I get more wood, so today I cut out the side profile of the chop. I had this piece of thin ply laying around so I ripped it down to size and put my alignment marks on it, then drew the shoulder using a french curve template. Using the centerline I was able to do both sides. I clamped it on edge and sanded the template profile smooth then traced both sides on the chop. I cut a bunch ...

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 ...
