Here is a video of how I made the Diamond Edition holdfast. Still some things to work out, but looks good enough to make an actual one to sell.

bench vice and starting out

04-21-2014 11:21 PM by Lazy_K | 1 comment »

Hi, one of the investments a beginner woodworker thinks they really need is a nice cast iron bench vice. Now, I’ve been doing this professionally since 1982. In @ 1994 I got a used /discarded slab of laminated rock maple with a vice on one corner. some school threw out several student benches with the vices on them. some local persons “salvaged” them from the dumpster. my truck may have been used and I got one…. I never use it.I had gotten used to by then a homemade v...

Fix and repaint table… Retro style

01-10-2012 01:03 PM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

Sisters table has broken legs. It is a shame really as it is pretty old table and still pretty good nick. After looking at it best we can do is glue and the try and brace the base a bit more. Now big sis wants to sand whole table back and redo just to spruce up. Now we all love wood, but her house has heaps of natural wood showing and with the table, it actually becomes to much so she is thinking of … eeeek painting it. (shock horror I know, but I actually on this occasion agree with her, ...

The Bar #1: The Bar to man cave

11-29-2014 09:58 AM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

11 months ago it was decided we would have new years on our new deck that was only built a month before. So we decided on the spur of the moment to build a bar From there the bar seems to have taken on a life of its own. It no longer an out door bar, it is fully enclosed and water proofed... which in it self was a challenge once was water proofed we got power added so the bar fridge and TV, lights and accessories. The french doors we made at my work and got them installed once they went up...

Replacement Speaker Boxes #2: Clamps are off...

12-30-2011 08:22 AM by Nighthawk | 0 comments »

Been a bit slack and well christmas and all that no excuse… anyway both speakers now glued and set, the back piece is not yet glued in, so we can assemble the wiring to the actual speakers when finished etc. Clamps are off and the long slow timely process of sanding to get them loooking good. This will also hide any inperfections of our glue up… Doh Have taped newspaper over speaker faces to protect them the best we can, so no dust can get in anyway. Also have done the same to ...

Southwest end tables #2: I am soooo done planning.

08-31-2013 01:44 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 3 comments »

Yup – I couldn’t wait. I took that little bit of purple heart and Peruvian walnut and chopped it into little tiny pieces. The center is glued. I was dry fitting the outside border. Thought I would snap a work in progress picture. I didn’t get to do much lumber-jocking this week but I did repair the dryer, sliding glass door tack and van. I’ll take my little bit of progress and be thankful. I think I’ll be able to do a little good this weekend but my woo...

Redwood Kayak

07-09-2008 09:42 AM by psolver1 | 1 comment »

So you trim a few fruit trees and you wind up with a pile of reclaimed Redwood from California army base structures. The math is wierd but it worked out. This pile will be a strip built kayak. Now my laziness has “bit me in the buttocks” I bought a mold set from CLC. Not impressed., but you pay a hundred bucks for a set of molds and unfortunately you get a hundred dollars worth of molds. Next time I will just spend the 15 hours of time and loft out a set of molds and I sure ...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #9: Finishing up the tail vise

03-19-2015 12:57 AM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

Yesterday the last thing I did was cut up that big walnut board and laminate two pieces for the leg vise. Took it out of the clamps this morning and I think I’ll wait for this Sunday before going forward with it. After I was done yesterday, I was in the house and heard this big crash. I never did find out what it was until this morning I saw the walnut glue up had fallen off my table saw and bent one of my hand screw clamps. Oops. In the meantime, I worked on the d...

The Harbor Freight Experiment Series #2: Not enough clamps!

12-15-2013 08:10 PM by paxorion | 1 comment »

For part 2 of my series, I want to share how I tackled the problem of “not enough clamps!” early on in my woodworking adventure. When we a lot of something and at a very cheap price, there’s no better option (according to capitalism) than to outsource it. The first time I walked into a Harbor Freight, it was actually completely by chance when my wife was at Jo-Ann. I remember looking at the section housing all of the clamps and thought “why in the world would anyo...
