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...
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...
Was work in in shop today when I get a call from my girlfriend. Her 3yr old boy was in daycare with a fever and an apparent massive headache. She couldn’t find anyone else to get him and asked if I could. So shop time got cut out, no real biggie, I brought the shop to the coffee table while we watched Wall-E. Been meaning to make some of these for consistent bevels on my planes and Chisels , but kept putting it off. I use a cheap sharpening guide just like I seen the Schwarz. For chi...
short lil bitty, just more planing and trying to figure up glueup. Mainly just a few pics, didn’t take many, phone weighed too much.. initial setup, i moved some around later and liked it betterI had them clamped together to be able to lift the slab and judge some weight..gonna be nice and heavy. Wards Master #6 took a 6.5’ full width shaving for me and had to catch the moment :0 I like where i have them aligned at this point, though i still gotta tweek the gl...
“We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment” -Jim Rohn I thought I would spend the day continuing to work on my Krenov saw horses, since I didn’t have any new DVDs or books on woodworking. For those that stopped by hoping to see a rant about John Lively’s company The Taunton Press, you will be disappointed to know that I am too happy today to gripe about their inefficiency. Because Monday is a holiday, I won’t get them be...
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.
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...
Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface (workbench) #19: Saw Bench/Saw Horse No. 2 - Layout & Beginning Cuts
Straight cuts done fairly quickly, cleanly, and accurately now – becoming second nature. Needed to to shave off a bit more than I wanted to deal with using a chisel, so I am using my mitre/back saw to dissect this “whisper” of a shaving. Thinnest sliver I’ve ever re-sawn before. Oops! Almost messed up! Got be careful with layout & marking. More marks – I’ve gone to marking waste with an “X” even when it’s so obvious, just i...
