FIRST LOVE IS NEVER FORGOTTEN

01-30-2011 12:39 AM by Dilo Marcio Fernandino | 6 comments »

Dear Fellows, In 1965 I was a teenager beginning my lonely track to woodcarving. My first set of tools was composed by three Sorsakoski bevel-edged firmer chisels made in Finland, which became my carving tools for many years. I was fortunate enough to have bought those Sorsakoski by chance, once because of its superb quality steel (some people say they are made from the same Swedish steel of the famous Berg chisels), also due to their elegant and bal...

Clamp Rack

02-12-2012 04:14 AM by thiswoodshop | 11 comments »

My clamps was always just laying around my shop. They ended up every ware from may table saw to behind my lath. I searched the internet high and low and did not fins any good ideas that will fir my shop. Don’t get me wrong there is plenty of good clamp racks out there from swing door to the mobile versions. In needed something that would not take up a lot of floor space and yet have the ability to store my 8ft and 6ft clamps. I have a lot of pipe clams and a few Jet ones. I also have a lot of...

Intarsia Basics #6: We are Almost There!!

06-25-2012 01:00 AM by KoryK | 14 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...

Book shelves from reclaimed wood and shutters #1: Beginning with shutters

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

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...

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...

First attempt at hand-cut dovetails.

12-10-2007 04:15 PM by itsme_timd | 24 comments »

Now I see why they have machines to do this… I think I went into this overconfident in my abilities. How hard could it be to cut out a simple notch in a board??? Fairly hard when your attitude exceeds your ability. First, I bought a ‘fancier’ saw than the basic dovetail saw and it just made things worse. Then – when that didn’t work I broke out the coping saw for some nice wavy cuts, I got out the chisel and tore it up real good, and finally… the D...

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...

Bedroom Set #2: Side panels allmost ready for assembly

09-20-2010 05:24 AM by sandhill | 20 comments »

I am laying out the legs now to accept the panels and railsThis is where the center stile will fit into the top and bottom rail.The tenons are only 1/4” and the panels will float in the rails and stiles. The strength that holds the sides together will be from the rails, the top and bottom shelf which will be 3/8” X 1 1/4” tenons pined from the legs.

First hand cut dovetails. Ugh...I'm glad that's over with.

04-12-2012 02:59 AM by BTimmons | 12 comments »

This may very well end up as my new yardstick for time and effort invested versus quality of results. And it’s not a terribly good yardstick, either. As the title states, it’s my first attempt at hand cut dovetails. I did it with scrap pieces of red oak, over the course of two embarrassing hours. The gaps are pretty pronounced, despite having to hammer the hell out of both pieces to fit them together. Things I learned during this quintessential rite of passage for wo...
