Shop Organization #1: Chisel Rack!

516 days ago by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

For all the version with pictures, please click here. I guess I got a bug to get more organized as the projects I’m working on get more complicated, storing all the tools in the rolling tool chest o’ many drawers is getting awkward. Plus it seems like all the cool kids have a chisel rack…. I came up with this a few days ago in my head, but I’m sure it’s just an amalgamation of all the cool designs I’ve seen out there. I’m pretty sure the slo...

Got my first Lie-Nielsen. Why am I not excited?

29 days ago by Steve Diogo | 16 comments »

I got my first Lie-Nielsen tool today: A ¾ inch bevel-edge chisel. From everything I’ve read about Lie-Nielsen, I knew this would be an exciting day… a milestone that marked a new phase of working wood. I’ve lost hours looking at the Lie-Nielsen website and catalog, imagining the day I’d open my first LN box and hold the tool that would immediately jettison me into a new level of craftsmanship. After reading a great blog series on building a quality tool collection slowly (sorry, I’...

My First Workbench #28: Day 29: Mounting the Leg Vise (part 1)

544 days ago by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Here’s the link to the post with pictures. Today I finally had enough of thinking and worrying about how to mount the leg vise. After all, once I drill that big hole through the leg, there’s no going back! I got out the Black and Decker Woodwrecker and a 5/8” paddle bit, then punched a hole in the chop for the threaded rod. Then i carefully lined up the chop exactly where I wanted it…leveled it and clamped it in place. I marked the spot on the leg where the hole...

Dueling hobbies---Astronomy and woodworking

554 days ago by RaggedKerf | 7 comments »

Please click here for this image heavy post. For those of you who don’t know me, I am an amateur astronomer (besides dabbling in woodworking, writing, art, etc…). I started an astronomy at Wordpress lately to post pictures I’ve been taking through my telescope and other tidbits. I thought of a way yesterday to merge my two biggest hobbies, astronomy and woodworking. I decided to make a base for my Telrad reflex sight, to fit atop the Texas Yard Cannon. And, to make...

Extremely Average #7: To and Fro

1559 days ago by Ecocandle | 9 comments »

It is all back and forth, to and fro, over and over again, until my fingers are sore and angry. Actually my fingers are not only angry, they are bitter and told me in no uncertain terms, “Listen bub, we know you are excited about your new little sharpening station, but either we get a break, or we will wrap ourselves around your neck.” I am not brave, so I relented and decided to take a break from sharpening. I checked and my fingers agreed that they would be more than willing to eithe...

I'm Back...

1435 days ago by David Craig | 14 comments »

Sorry folks for my little hiatus from the LJ community. I had one week with an extremely busy work schedule followed by a week where my wife and I decided to make our separation permanent. Took a little bit of time to mull things over and have come to the conclusion it is best for both parties. I have a buddy who likes to jokingly remind me that I don’t know enough about women yet, that I was one marriage shy of being educated. On this, I will have to agree with him :) One good thing...

The old time woodshop journals #19: Rhythms of woodwork

622 days ago by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

As I have stated a few times before I have only been at this wood working game for just over 2 years now. A few months into this journey I graduated up to some chisels and mallet simply trying to understand the elementary basics of paring down wood. I believe the first task was a very green horn lap joint followed by smashing a mortice in..lol. Maybe smashing is the only way of the untrained hands as they yearn to make masterpieces, only while seeing them in our dreams until we can put as man...

Carvings done by mixing powertools and woodcarving irons. #2: Where no flowers grow during winter, The colouring.

28 days ago by koraile | 5 comments »

As you see, i have finaly come to the last part of the flower carving. I have the rough shape, and started the last part of sanding and detail shaping. I have always loved this part when it comes to these types of carvings, when at last the image i have had in my head takes form and gets Sharp, its like tuning a lense. The Picture finaly gets Clear, at this stage i have a hard time letting go. On this Project im working in the livingroom, you might have noticed :) Its cosy in my li...

Iroko & Sycamore Table

2389 days ago 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...
