Building my first humidor

06-28-2016 02:44 AM by Drew Gregory | 0 comments »

A friend asked me to make a humidor for him after seeing some of my other projects. Having never made one, of course I said yes.Started off with a simple rabbit joint for the box frame. Added some maple trim on the corners and brought it down flush with my no.5 1/2 Added a walnut ply in a rabbit to the top and bottom Next up the top and bottom caps at 3/8” thick This walnut crotch is from a 4/4 chunk that I book matched to give it a subtle nod to a tobacc...

Saw Making #3: Gents Saw Conversion Part 2

06-23-2016 11:05 PM by AgentTwitch | 3 comments »

Part two of the Gents Saw Conversion series. This may be a bit verbose, so I apologize ahead of time. After all, we are just drilling holes… The next step in the conversion process is drilling holes. A lot of holes. You will need a variety of forstner and twist drill bits to complete these steps. With your template affixed to your stock, use an awl to create reference points on all of the indicated locations, or use the spur on the forstner to create a divot. Apply moderate pr...

Saw Making #2: Gents Saw Conversion Part 1

05-14-2016 07:12 PM by AgentTwitch | 0 comments »

There has been a lot of interest in building tools from scratch, rehabbing tools that needed some love, or repurposing a tool so that it might have more potential or beauty. I have decided to chronicle a few saw builds in these categories in the hope that it might inspire someone to give it a try that was otherwise too nervous to begin the journey on their own. For this series, I am going to do a write up on re-purposing an inexpensive gents saw into a western style dovetail saw. This idea...

Saw Making #1: A Borg Backsaw

05-07-2016 07:44 PM by AgentTwitch | 7 comments »

I thought it would be interesting to try another inexpensive build and decided to re-purpose one of the Home Depot Husky 14” backsaws that sell for a little less than $9 USD. Here it is in its natural environment. On first inspection, you see that its made in the USA (from global components), but is made from high carbon spring steel, is .032” thick and the plate is not etched. The folded steel back of this is my least favorite part, and I debated slotting a piece of brass,...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1706: Wearing my Woodworking Hat

03-03-2016 01:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Oh – I seem to be so late at getting to my blogs these days! I find that I wind up spending the mornings visiting my artistic friends' pages and seeing what they posted through the night. That usually takes me away to other places and gives me MORE ideas of new things to create. It is a vicious circle! ;) I spent the day yesterday finishing up drawing my new patterns for the scroll saw projects I am making and I actually got MOST of them cut out. With all the errands and stuff ...
