Three New Projects

515 days ago by MT_Stringer | 2 comments »

This pile of lumber may not look like much but it will magically turn in to two of my Fishy Coffee Tables and a Toy Box. :-) Turns out I need another 10 feet of white pine, so off to the store I go tomorrow. It makes it easy that a lot of the work for all three projects can be done ahead of time in a batch. Things like ripping the edges off the 2×4’s and ripping the 1×12 white pine into three pieces each. All of that was after I cut them into rough lengths so it would be ea...

Hand Tool Journey #14: Shop Made Dovetail Layout Compass.. Part 2

439 days ago by Airframer | 7 comments »

Just a quick update.. I see a lot of views but no feedback.. I’m beginning to think this is a stupid idea but, I’m pushing forward anyway. I got the legs rough cut and ready to be mortised into the hinge. I also got the brass curve cut. The geometry of that thing is a bit confusing but I think once the legs are shaped and the mortise is in place for that to go through it will make more sense. Right now the curve doesn’t seem like it will want to go through the same spo...

Tools tools, I love toys, I mean tools #1: You can never have enough clamps, especially parallel clamps

48 days ago by paxorion | 3 comments »

I think I have a problem. I love clamps so much that it must be infectious, that my 2 year old daughter gets excited when she sees clamps. My wife has pointed out that I probably have more clamps (built up in 2 years) than her parents keep in stock at any point in time (they run a hardware store…). I’m in denial that I probably have enough clamps to get this hobbyist through most projects they I may undertake in the near future. Recently I have begun building up my supply of w...

Practice makes... Well, two steps forward one step back.

2126 days ago by Derek Lyons | 5 comments »

Out in the shop today dry fitting a small scale (6”x8”) prototype of an end grain cutting board using cheap Poplar to hold costs down and hone my technique. (Heck, given my lack of experience it’s more like creating a technique!) The first dry fit went easily – too easily when I pondered it. So I tried again, this time imagining the pieces all slippery with glue… And sure enough all the parts ‘skidded around’ and a couple ended up on the ‘...

Firewood Plane #2: Not so alternative plane blanks

996 days ago by tr33surg3on | 0 comments »

I decided to abandon the firewood plane blank after I realized it was lodgepole pine. I’m playing it safe by using a Maple turning blank. It was about 2×2x20. I cut it down to two 10” segments and glued them together to make a 2×4x10 blank. It will be a little wider than necessary, but I’ll have plenty of room for error when I rip the sides. It also turned out the blade on my thrift-store #5 is more pitted than I had hoped. I sharpened it as best I cou...

My new Roubo #10: Twisty stretchers, sore shoulder

1271 days ago by JasonD | 0 comments »

After a very busy week, I finally got some time in the shop tonight to start on the stretchers. The 4 boards that make up the two short end stretchers were fairly flat to start. It didn’t take too much work to get them flattened and glued up. I injured my right shoulder early this week. So, I was pretty excited to find those boards to be flat to begin with. Well, that excitement was short lived. The boards for the long stretchers were twisted pretty bad. Not too bad to toss in the sc...
