Let’s see, cleaned the bench off a bit Except for a couple tools I thought I might need.. And brought this thing out of hiding.. Yep…that pine scrap did wind up glued in place. Wide chisel to pop it off. Got to looking at the legs….decided in the interests of it NOT falling over, a fourth legs was needed. First two legs were NOT 120* apart… Did NOT feel like digging another dovetail joint into the base with three already glued up. Used one leg as a pat...
Ok, had to decide which type of finish to use on this Cherry box The “Olde Standby” Witch’s Brew? Not quite what I was after, colour wise This is a 70/30 mix of BLO and Varnish. Had to go out and get a new can of each, and find something to mix it all in.. Also that evening in the shop….Box was final sanded. I fought to get those tiny hinges nailed in place, had to glue in a backer strip inside the lid, and then add a strip of scrap between the sides of...
The past couple years ive developed a passion for woodworking. its my time where i can get so focused on my projects and completely block out anything the world is throwing at me at any given time. I guess you can say the craft itself is basically my therapist, only if i were to substitute a real therapist id probably save about 10x the money that i do on tools, but they are beginning to get to the point where they are starting to pay themselves off. In my opinion where the true passion for ...

More trials and tribulations finishing up the box I made for my daughter. In the end it all worked out though. I did have a bit of a conflict putting it up. Seems it can not be shown in Germany as there is a copyright issue with the part of the song I used at the end. It is not like I am making any money doing this. My channel is very small with few subscribers as I don’t promote it much. I am not good at the whole social media thing and not much of a promoter. I just do it for...
I just posted a little thing on my blog about the process of ebonizing oak with a steel-wool-dissolved-in-vinegar solution. It’s simple to do, and I finally got around to trying it. Let me know what you think. http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2016/7/1/ebonizing-oak
New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #2: Restore & Install biesemeyer fence on the BandSaw
Be sure to check out the first part of this series where I get the saw & refurbish it… The old biesemeyer fence I am using was originally off a powermatic table saw. The shop I got it from had it set up on a saw that was used strictly for running dados. For that they cut the rails short & it only had a 18” rip capacity which worked out great for this bandsaw because I would have felt bad having to cut the rails down my self. I always feel bad modifying old vintage stuff, I...
New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #1: rust removal on cast iron top & refurbish action multiple videos
Video links below… Recently I purchased an older 20” bandsaw. I need a larger bandsaw that can handle anything I throw at it.. I think I found that in a mid 70’s Rockwell 20” wood cutting bandsaw. It probably came out of a school wood shop. The motor is 2hp, it has two speeds which can be adjusted with the belt, it has already been upgraded with carter guides, this big boy saw weighs over 600 lbs. I made several videos regarding this saw which i’ll post below. ...
