The Essential Craftsman

02-03-2018 12:40 AM by IantheTinker | 7 comments »

Hey folks, I just wanted to point out a YouTube channel called Essential Craftsman. It is run by a man named Scott and his son, Nate. Scott values craftsmanship of any kind very highly. He has been a logger and has been a contractor for many years. I have found him to be a wealth of both knowledge and encouragement. He is currently building a spec house and is filming every step of the process. I think many of you might enjoy his channel. P.S. He is also a really good blacksmith with lots ...

Desk Chairs #2: Chair Legs and the Leg Lamp Major Award

12-16-2017 02:50 PM by EarlS | 4 comments »

In the spirit of one of the greatest Christmas movies I present the Leg Lamp Major Award Inspirational isn’t it? Now on to wood related activities… First of all, the 4 chairs will be made from Walnut since I have an abundance of it in the wood stack, and I’m out of Cherry. After poring over the plans and reading and re-reading the booklet that comes with them as well as anything and everything I could find on Lumberjocks or elsewhere on the web I finally brok...

Tool Upgrades / Repairs #1: Craftsman 113.27520 Table Saw Rebuild

12-07-2017 01:59 PM by rbrjr1 | 7 comments »

A little over a month ago I was on CL looking for a table saw.. It’s THAT TIME, TIME to get my shop organized and stop working on my knees (fine when I was 26 and purchased the house, not fine at 42).. First step, get rid of the SKIL mini tablesaw that I inhereted from my father in law (he was throwing it out and I dont like to see people throw out tools). So, back to CL.. I was looking for an 80’s Craftsman table saw (like my dad has) and ran across the 113.27520 and thought.....

Craftsman Tablesaw "Restoration" #1: Free is a 4 letter word

11-04-2017 12:53 AM by HandyHousewife | 3 comments »

A few months ago, my husband and I got a tablesaw (among other things) from an aunt that was clearing out after years of hoarding…I mean, collecting stuff at estate sales. We’d never had a tablesaw before, so we were pretty excited to get it, even knowing that it was far from in perfect condition. Even if it needed some work, it was still better than just having a skillsaw, right? Well, yes and no. ;-) After blowing out the motor, the first thing we did was ask on here a...

1950s Craftsman Tablesaw Restoration #2: What do you think about the color?

09-22-2017 12:48 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

I was planning on sandblasting the table saw parts. It would be quick and easier I believe. However, I was not able to get that done, so I went with traditional ways…..a bit of elbow grease. Check out the video and let me know what you think about the color I have chose for the saw. Don't forget to hit that subscribe button...NEW VIDEO EVERY FRIDAY!

"New" Picture of Gustav Stickley

03-21-2017 02:39 AM by cicerojoe | 3 comments »

I have always been interested in history. Being from the Syracuse NY area, I am very familiar with Stickley. They make it in a suburb of Syracuse and I know people who work there. Anyway, my interest in history and woooworking kind ove “dovetailed” and I found a picture of Gustav Stickley that I have never seen on the internet. Anyway it is in a public domain book (because it is so old) and I posted it on my website at:

It was made to comb mail #1: A mahogany foundry pattern

02-17-2017 01:01 AM by Patternguy | 8 comments »

A picture story about building a pattern. 10 years ago, I was the CAD/CAM guy for a pattern shop. We also had a plaster molding shop and an aluminum foundry, where we pressure cast aluminum match plates. 10 years before that, I was on the bench, building the wood master patterns that went on to become match plates. 20 years before that, I was serving a Pattern maker’s apprenticeship in an iron foundry. The master I learned from once ran General Motors, “Tech Center”...
