Hand Tools Odyssey #1: What is Sharp?

09-13-2009 06:12 PM by gizmodyne | 11 comments »

Intro to Hand ToolsThree Saturdays ago, Kristin and I woke up early and headed down to good ol’ Cerritos Community College to start our new class, Woodworking with Hand Tools. Previously we have taken Basic Woodworking, Cabinet Making and a Furniture Lab together. I have also taken table making and a few more lab classes. I have a pretty good grip on basic furniture making and power tool use, but have been frustrated in my use of hand tools. Kristin is not a fan of huge power tools...

Hand Tool Journey #1: Lately I've really been getting into hand tools.

03-02-2009 11:06 AM by Blake | 7 comments »

Lately I’ve really been getting into hand tools. I asked for a few Japanese chisels for Christmas (one each from a few different people in the family.) I ended up with a set of four from Woodcraft. I decided that this collection was worthy of family heirloom status so I had them laser engraved and built a box to keep them in. I have always had a fascination with Japanese culture, art and woodworking. Lately I have been reading Japanese Woodworking Tools, Their Tradition, Spir...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #49: Awakened In Your Gobi

02-23-2009 02:14 AM by frank | 5 comments »

Awakened In Your Gobi seems as if i am teller of tales that bears your beauty forth,why am i so woodly anomic when all your warmth of hue surrounds me,culler of the art that comes from hand-tooling your existence of being,while faith-fully noted are the cracks of character that provide story…. ....planed from the start by gouges that wrought some sense of stability,your spoken desire was what soon caught the attention of my ears,and what if my hands started breathing wi...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #47: Occulation of the Wood

01-11-2009 04:30 PM by frank | 4 comments »

Occulation of the Wood ....what is this shadow that transverses your mind, when you look at wood? One table top of rock maple that I am presently working on and hope to have done by the end of March. Many of the details as to how and what I am going after have not yet been fully worked out//worked in, but that’s only a matter of time as I listen to what the wood would say to me. ....and…. Things not known at this point: 1.)—no-name…. 2.)&#...

My Tools #4: The Tools I'm Most Proud Of

04-25-2008 06:02 AM by Eric | 8 comments »

After talking about the most embarrassing tools I own, I thought it would be good to get my mind off of these purchases by talking about my favorite tools in the shop. Feel free to add yours in the comments, or on your own blog (and post the link in the comments). 3. My Irwin chisels. From what I hear, Irwin chisels haven’t lost much of the original quality that their predecessor Marples provided. And I love ‘em. Use ‘em all the time. The best thing? If I ever do run out ...

Why Norm's power tool cabinetry revolution is happening...

04-15-2008 03:59 PM by flink | 7 comments »

Well, I’ve been searching and looking high and low. Mainly for chisels and handplanes. I was looking for decent everyday tools, not collectibles. I didn’t want to spend a lot money since that would take away from the money I need for wood. I started my search on ebay, progressed to various forum site member ads, watched craiglist, checked auction sites, newspaper classifieds. Then I began looking for new items in catalogs/websites/stores. The prices I found for old tools wer...

"Waunderin' Characters of Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

11-01-2007 01:42 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Waunderin’ Characters of Wood time is the culmination of the work of a universe, where were it not for others of me singing verse, i might even think that i was the only teller of rhyme, but as so often happens to actors in fields of mime, —-words fade and my hands give in to waunderin’ characters of wood…. So put your mind boots of imagination on and here we go once again, in the dusk of a fading sun, into the throes of cacoethes…. ....’...

Iroko & Sycamore Table

10-02-2007 07:58 PM by ByronBlack | 12 comments »

Hi all. I wanted to introduce myself and present all you fellow ‘jocks with my current project. It’s a little design I’ve had whirling around my head for some time. It’s an Arts & Crafts inspired small table to go next to the sofa and hold ‘her in doors’ cup of tea whilest watching TV of an evening. Here’s a shot of a dry fit and unfinished top: I’m currently in the middle of a glue up of the leg assemblies, and a mitred frame to s...
