I was asked to take these shutters and make some bookshelves. I will be utilizing wood that is approx. 60 yrs old and these shutters, which, we don’t know how old, but could be much more. I am inserting the pictures of the shutters, as this project may take a little while

Intarsia Basics #6: We are Almost There!!

06-25-2012 01:00 AM by KoryK | 13 comments »

Welcome back and again sorry for taking so long to get this post out. After my hand healed I was really backed up on some other projects. I’m almost caught up and will post some of those projects on my page in the next couple of days. When we left off we had all the sanding done and are ready for staining and finishing. I’m making two of these frogs, one that will need staining and one out of exotic wood so everyone can participate in this project. We will go over staining next. I’m...

Picture frame profiles

04-13-2011 05:53 AM by devann | 5 comments »

I was checking out some picture frames that spunwood has on the site and ask to see some profiles. My request was granted so now it’s my turn. I went out to the shop and took these pictures. Hope that this helps those of us that don’t have molding cutters see another way to do it. This one is weathered cedar and a piece of redwood cut with a cove bit on the routertable and a piece of longleaf pine with a rabbet cut making the inside of the frame. Here I used ipe with sedona ...

Heavily modified Paul Sellers workbench #1: She's got legs.....

03-26-2012 04:01 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 7 comments »

I’ll skip the boring parts, like the glue up of the legs and material choice. I will say that I had intended to build my own designed bench sometime last year. I was sold on a certain author’s idea of an awesome Roubo style bench. I got Paul Sellers’ Working Wood, book and dvd set at Christmas this year, and it completely changed my way of thinking. But you didn’t come here for ramblings, you want to see pictures…... There they are, pretty aren&#...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #1: FINALLY- The first episode is done! You're gonna LOVE IT!

11-12-2011 01:08 AM by StumpyNubs | 63 comments »

Maybe “LOVE” is a strong word. But I’m really excited about the final version of the show, and I think most people will feel the same way. Forget about everything we experimented with before. This is all new. It’s been over a year in development, and And I’d like to think it is a pretty unique format! Here’s how it works… The show is designed to have the feel of a single camera “reality” type show. It is meant to be a glimpse into our workshop as if you were just stopping in...

Ali's Workbench w/ Shop Made Wagon Vise #1: 3 1/2" Thick Workbench top w/ Shop Made Wagon Vise - Almost Done!

10-19-2010 05:59 PM by Alihorneff37 | 6 comments »

Here is a better pic of my workbench top and shop made end vise. The legs are almost done. I did some experimentation with a drawbore (name?) tenon that you can see on the back end. The empty space is where the half long tool tray will be. Honestly, I am undecided about the tool tray. Would it even be possible to just fill it in? Suggestions would be great! :) This is my first attempt at dovetails. And they are extremely hard! I am sure you can see the little spaces/discolorations but I r...

My clamps was always just laying around my shop. They ended up every ware from may table saw to behind my lath.

First time tool gloat

05-25-2011 12:56 AM by devann | 15 comments »

Every once in a while somebody gives me an antique tool. Today was another one of those days. Today I was given a Stanley No. 62 1/2”x 24” folding wood ruler. It seems to be in fairly good shape and I was tickled to receive it. In the past I have arrived to the shop and found some old tools left in a box outside my shop door. Here are a couple examples. The top one is about 9” overall. And the bottom one is 13” overall. They both have the word Ward and a...

Hand tool revalations #3: curves and tenons

01-14-2012 07:08 PM by Andrew | 6 comments »

Well, the temperature in MN has turned to normal for this time of year, from the 40s to the teens, and working in my garage has slowed a bit. On top of that both my wife and a friend have asked for other projects, which of course, I am happy to put in line after this one. But it is cold in the garage (workshop) and metal planes rob heat from the hands faster than a politician with a sweet tooth grabbing a lollipop from a child! Progress must continue. So I will start work on the apron, I ...
