Figured I would start a new series related to tool making. I recieved Fine Woodworking yesterday and I noticed that there is an article/video on making and using a simple Scratch stock. This is another one of those items that has been on my build list for a while. Additionally there is an article on how to make a dove tail marker out of brass and some chisels for refining dove tails. The chisels look like they are right up Mads alley. The chisels are made from Hock Marking Knife bl...

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...
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
Using Oil Stones Again, Water Stones Now Stowed Away Ollie gave an excellent review of Norton Water Stones and I posted most of the comments below at that review. I think perhaps it was a bit out of place there and offer my apologies to Ollie. I just wanted to present some of my experiences with water stones out in public in case there are others out there that are getting a bit disillusioned with using them. I’ll preface this with, “the vast majority of woodworkers will disagree with...

From my blog: I started my hand-cut dovetail journey this past September. In this post I share my graduation from Hand-Cut Dovetails-101. What a terrific day! As I have mentioned in those previous posts , I have been hand-cutting dovetails every chance I get. I prepared sycamore stock so that it would be at the ready when I have a little (or a lot…) of time to practice. Today I cut dovetails in three little practice boxes, with minimal paring on the pins. Oh – I almost forgo...

Hi everybody, I have finished the flute now and I am very happy with how it has turned out. I was quite concerned about getting the finger holes correct and had some help from Charlie Mato-Toyela who spent about 90’ on the phone from the USA to Australia to help me get the pitch and the tuning correct, Charlie is a indeed wonderful person. His Youtube page is Blue Bear Flutes which I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who is contemplating making one of these lovely instrument...
So for those of you who read my first post, heres the results! I decided to finish this part tonight because I remembered I am getting my wisdom teeth pulled tommorow morning, so I’ll be out of commision for a bit. I spent about 35 minutes with the Veritas Mk2 jig. I started with the 1000 grit side and moved to the 4000 grit side. At the end I’ll post some pictures of the factory finish that came on the chisels. This is the blade edge at 40X, notice that even when cleane...
