Coffee table #1: Some pics of my daughters coffee table

05-13-2018 12:47 AM by icemanhank | 10 comments »

Hi all, I was asked by daughter #2 to build a coffee table of her and her partners design. I had some Tasmanian Blackwood floating around in the shed which I thought would be nice for the frame and had some beautiful 1/4 sawn tasmanian Oak at the wood club that was free (old church pews) which I thought I could use for the top. Although the original intension was a live edge piece. This can be changed easily at a later time if she still wants the slab top. The Oak for the top, while ...

DIY Jigs / How-to Woodworking #5: Magnetic Japanese Handsaw Guide

05-12-2018 06:42 PM by Humus Workshop | 6 comments »

Hi there! The nature of the project is so simple that I do not even need to upload so many photos, with just one is enough. The results, to be concise, is that this little jig has been very simple to do it and very effective at the same time. As a detail I can mention that I have covered the corners with a 1 mm acrylic sheet, this makes the blade does not touch directly the magnets to does not loose the alignment. In the following video you can watch my step by step to do it: https:...

Restoring a ‘59 unisaw #1: From rusty to almost done and thoughts. Add other goodies.

05-07-2018 02:51 AM by TheFridge | 24 comments »

Picked it up this almost complete unisaw (missing miter gauge. Meh) off Craigslist for 450$ from a feller. With goose egg, dust cover, and extra 36” bies fence thrown in for free :) sold the jet lock for 50$. Have since acquired a 52” unifence missing a part or 2 but in good shape to use. Has a 2HP 3ph motor so I picked up a VFD for 80$ After selling off the other 2. While I’m at it :) Have since picked up a barely used performax 16/32 drum sander for 250$ and 420...

Wood Defect and Damage Repair #1: Using Epoxy Putty for Defect Repair

04-23-2018 02:04 AM by Rich | 10 comments »

When replying to posts about repairing defects or other voids in wood, I often suggest using epoxy putty. The problem with that is that unless someone has used epoxy putty before, it can seem intimidating. It’s really very simple to use, and once you play around with it a little, you’ll find yourself using it more and more. It’s also very durable and can stand up to wear and moisture. Epoxy putty comes in a stick and is made up of two parts, as shown below. Think of i...

Sashimono #1: Japanese Sashimono Box - Traditional Furniture Maker

So, for all my box making buddies out there, I thought this video I just found today would really speak to you, especially the hand tool purists. This Japanese woodworker steps you through his build from beginning to end, and it’s a fascinating look into some really interesting techniques and some amazing hand tool woodworking skill. Enjoy!
