Hey everyone,I am in need of some help! I am writing a book called “The Burl Hunter”. I am looking for interested people who are willing to read as I write to help me out. I am not a great writer but I love to teach. What I would like to do is get about 5 people to read and critique the book. Even edit my grammar. I would like 2 people who know about burls just to keep me in check and 3 to just read to learn and see how it flows. I need your input. It is a book that will g...
Episode 80 Entertainment Center Part 1 from kostas workshop on Vimeo.In this episode I start working on my saw dust chronicles build challenge entry. I start working on the panels that are going to be used for the sides and the top and bottom. After I cut all the parts to size I glue up the boards to make panels.
Ok so it isn’t Tuesday, but I thought I would share another review on a great product. I really enjoy testing out tools and this one was one of my favorites. There are a ton of great things about this vise. It has really been helpful in my blacksmithing hobby as well as my woodworking. You can’t go wrong with a Bessey Tools product. Check out the video review here. Feel free to leave comments and please subscribe to my YouTube Channel.
Hey guys! Taking advantage of the long weekend here in Canada, (so this was last weekend) I made a better base for my dremel. I was taking it apart to see why it was squeaking (trapped sawdust) when the idea hit me – drill the existing screw holes all the way through the body, and get a longer screw to hold the dremel together (like the old screws) and hold the dremel to the base. Well, I didn’t have a screw quite that long and thin, but I did have some short screws of the correct diameter. S...

Hello all, I thought I’d post a short blog on the handscrew clamps I have just made. I was short on clamps for extra cauls on some laminated panels I am working on, as usual i didn’t find what I need on sale here so I had to knock something together. I won’t be posting all the details of the construction as the design is based on danriffles project here... (Thanks Dan :)As I don’t have a lathe, or a source of hardwood dowels, or time at this moment to build the ro...
Last time we got the splines installed and flushed up. Now, we will get the base done. Mortises cut on the base and on the bottom of the flag box using your standard drill press and chisel combo. Here we have the majority of the waste of a mortise hogged out using a forstner bit on the drill press. I just used a handheld drill on the bottom of the flag box. Here you can see the supports with the top tenon. They are just dry in the base with the mortise and tenon. I have the layou...
Well no pictures this evening. I managed to get a little shop time in, worked on the leeboard mounts, and the step for the mast. Those are ready for gluing in. I temporarily fixed my ROS but the bottom popped out again so I guess it’s time to shop for a new sander. I still have the old B&D half sheet sander of my Dad’s which is just shy of 412 years old and it still works, why can’t a three or four year old sander that spent much of the time in a drawer keep working ...
Time to make the frames for the drawer fronts. The pieces were narrow and some were small so I set up a featherboard to help safely guide the pieces past the cutter. They turned out nice. The drawer fronts will have flat panels. I could have used either plywood or mdf but NO! Instead, I glued up some short pieces of poplar, planed them to almost 3/8 inch thick, then ran them through the drum sander. Next, it was cut to final size, then rout a rabbit in the rear so the panels would fit i...
Well I new this wouldn’t last. but it was great as long as it did, What I’m talking about is my wood sorce was a friend of mine worked at a factory that received there inventory with 1/8”, 1/4” and 1/2” plywood, and so he was able to pick up truck loads of it. Believe it or not, it was really nice wood. Beautiful grain, and I coulkd actually fit the pictures to the wood. Would you believe I lost his Phone number I have been trying to get ahoad of him, to get anot...
