I spent a very happy day in my workshop today….mostly I jointed, thicknessed and ripped lots of timber… Purple Heart, Silver Ash, Silky Oak…[aka Lacewood] and Tasmanian Blackwood… I used an Incra TSLS 32 to rip fine strips for accents..

I set aside the me I decided to use some scraps of Ipé from the deck that was built a couple years ago to finally build that bench, to sit on top of said deck. Here is a sketchup snapshot of part of the design; And a few of work in progress. I cut the butt-swoop in the top of the ‘ribs’ on the bandsaw.

Going, going, gone...

Sunday I went to my first auction.  My wife spied an article in the local paper about an estate auction being held nearby and part of the estate was a wood working shop! The auctions started at 10:00, and I didn’t get there until nearly 9:45, so I didn’t have as much chance to walk around and scope things out as I would have liked. I got a little electric sharpener (by craftsman) for $10.00.  This will be good enough to hollow grind a set of junkie bench chisels, b...

Without a WW bench, would straightening wood work with two clamps to hold a board?

05-06-2010 10:29 AM by TopamaxSurvivor | 26 comments »

I need to straighten out an eight foot piece of oak. I needed to take a ¾ inch bow out of the board. I have no joiner. I clamped a straight edge on the oak and cut it with my skill saw. I do not have a wood working bench to hold it for planning either. I used one clamp to hold it vertically and another clamp to hold that clamp. Placing the whole she-bang against a firm object, away we go!! The No. 7 Stanley whipped it out in nothing flat ;-))
