My Big Brother #1: In memory of my Big Brother

2361 days ago by JTRid43 | 17 comments »

Its been a long time sense I have been on. Not because of anything anyone here has done. You see, I lost my brother not long back. He had a huge heart attack that took him home to be with God. Its been really hard to deal with as everything I have ever learned about wood working and fixing cars and stuff I learned from Kevin. He taught me the basics of all this stuff. Every time I pick up a tool, my thoughts go to him. Kevin always said that day he died he wanted to be buried in a pine box...

Woodworking? Or Carpentry?

2464 days ago by Dekker | 14 comments »

I am reminded once again about the difference between woodworking and woodworking. To the lay-person, anytime you take up your hammer, nails, saw, glue and wood, you are practicing the art of woodworking. At least that’s the way my wife sees it, and when I suggested that I was going to spend some time in the workshop this weekend to play with a box design I had dreamt up, she immediately suggested that I do one of the other woodwork projects that need to be done such as the bathroom ...

I build 3 different kinds of canoe paddles, a normal straight shaft and blade paddle, a straight shaft power stroke blade design, and a bent shaft power stroke blade design. Here are profile shots of what they look like. Bent shaft paddleStraight shaft paddle As an avid flat water canoer/paddler, I am very conscious of the need to keep the weight of the paddles down as much as possible yet making them strong at the ...

Projects #8: John White FWW Workbench - Finished Top

2528 days ago by Jeff | 8 comments »

I have an update on the bench. The top is completed and I’m nearing the home stretch. I’m already starting to come up with ideas for special uses/jigs for the inserts in the well… I measured and drilled the holes for the end supports of the well and then threaded my pipe stock and checked for level. I also cut the blocks that are moved when you need to adjust the lateral clamps and positioned them above each leg and the center support. I laid in the MDF panels to make sur...

Projects #7: John White FWW Workbench - Clamping/Accessory Well

2533 days ago by Jeff | 7 comments »

Last week I finished drilling many holes for the sides of the well. These included the holes for the clamping bars as well as the pilot holes and countersinks for the confirmat screws. This took a bit of time because of all the measuring and trial and error positioning to ensure I didn’t make any major mistakes since the FWW plans were subject to interpretation and my sketchup plans (last entry) were a little inaccurate regarding the size of the clamping bars. It paid off though. For ...
