15 Ft Power-Drifter Fishing Boat, "Tiger Lily" #3: Took a break to build a work bench... check her out (Gallery)!

Found this at a thrift shop and restored it. (Just an old Stanley Two-tone Jack but works for now) My own knife, plane iron, and chisel sharpening system I designed. 80 to 7000 grit.

Cigar Shop - Display Rack

02-27-2016 11:32 PM by McPheel | 0 comments »

The other day my brother gave me a call, asking if I wanted to build something for his shop. He owns a Cigar shop in Whitecourt Alberta called Cheap Smokes and Cigars. It’s a really cool shop, very classy and nostalgic, they have the basic inventory of cigarettes which they sell cheaper than any gas station or grocery store can offer, but beyond that they have an array of humidors (My creations will soon be joining this inventory), Pipes, Tobacco, Vaporisers and a massive walk in humido...

Making Two Sets of Matching Heirloom Saws #1: The 10" Dovetail Saw

02-12-2016 02:20 AM by summerfi | 20 comments »

This blog entry is a continuation of an earlier blog post titled Making Two Sets of Heirloom Saws: The Gent's Saw and The Table Saw. The making of these saws is an ideal topic for a blog series, but I unfortunately didn’t think of that when I made the original post. I’ve now turned this into a series, but there is no way to go back and incorporate the original post into the series. That is why this post shows as #1 of the series even though it is about the third saws in the sets....

Cocobolo and Leopardwood Table : Process pics. #4: Apron Frame & Front Rail Joinery

02-04-2016 07:51 PM by jeth | 4 comments »

Hello all (echo,o,o,o) several hundred “reads”, no comments, so either you’re all riveted to your seats awaiting the next installment, or that’s several hundred open page, scroll down a bit, go read something more interesting. Not wanting to leave this half way through I shall proceed with the upper aron frames and front rail joinery. The apron panels were to be framed with pieces of leopardwood. Here you can see the top pieces which are grooved to fit onto a rabbe...

Refurbish, Reclaim or Reject!! #1: Picked Up and Old, Early Disston today. Is it too far gone?

02-01-2016 01:50 PM by Dex378 | 4 comments »

So I went to my local salvage/resale store today looking for anything cool they might have up in the tool section. After rummaging through all the junk I found a complete postwar Stanley #4 bench plane for $3.00, some halfway decent rasps for $0.25 each, and few other odds and ends. As I was leaving I decided to dig through all the hand saws they had jammed in an old slop sink. After going through about 30 of them I came across an early Disston. I looked at it for a little while and the handl...

My Woodworking Projects #1: A last minute gift - dovetail box

02-01-2016 01:41 PM by Jordash | 0 comments »

I realised my last couple of posts were actually woodwork projects rather than workshop projects so I’ve started a new series. Anyway onto the actual post. In the run up to Christmas 2015 I realised I didn’t have much for my dad (a print out of a voucher wasn’t very interesting!). My dad has always had an interest in woodwork, so I decided to have a go at a quick project. I decided to try a dovetail box because I hadn’t done dovetails before and wanted an excu...

My First Dovetail

12-30-2015 05:46 PM by Jeff | 14 comments »

Earlier this week, I decided to try cutting a dovetail joint for the first time. I had bought a Veritas dovetail saw earlier in the year and I had never taken it out of the box. As you can see from the pictures, it was certainly not a success as far as the joint is concerned. I pretty much just started cutting. I had watched a few videos and even seen Frank Klausz cut them up close when he visited Highland Hardware. The good thing is that I now have one under my belt and the next one will...

Cabinetmaker's Toolchest #2: Dovetailing the case and bottom skirt

11-15-2015 04:40 PM by dannorocks | 3 comments »

With the jointed boards smoothed of tool marks and lumber yard stamps I’m ready to dovetail. I chose 1:6 ratio since I’m using pine, and will cut the tails first. I chose to lay out a tail 1” from the edge of long boards then used my dividers to space out my tails so that the opposite edge has a tail 1” from the edge of the board. Once I was happy with that I decided to go with 1” wide tails and drew out the boards and began cutting them out with my only back...

Making boxes. #2: Two towers of boxes.

06-08-2015 10:19 AM by degoose | 19 comments »

Now half way through the order for 45 boxes… update now 47 on order… This is what 20 boxes start out as… The camphor began as a slab… after dressing and resawing to just under 10 mm the boards are cut in a specific sequence to ensure the grain runs all 4 corners. Dovetail joints of course… the tails have been cut… After the pins are cut the carcasses are assembled… ready for the grooves to be cut inside top and bottom… to receive ...

Tool Cabinet Build #19: Starting On The Box Doors.. Plus Bonus Dovetail Tool Mod

04-23-2015 02:58 AM by Airframer | 7 comments »

This week has been all about getting the door frames dovetailed together for the box style front doors on this cabinet. This was a nice task to finally finish as it gives me a final dimension for the cabinet to see and start planning the base for. More on that to come but first the doors.. A couple weeks ago while finishing up the tambours I went ahead and ripped and cut to length the wall panels for the doors. So with those sitting around already all that was left was to get ...
