I thought I’d let my woodworking buddies know that my DVD was published!

It’s nearly 4 hours of instruction! Bill and I wanted to create a very affordable and detailed class that would be easily understood by both beginner and advanced woodworkers, and we achieved that…with the help of R...

How to Square, Flatten, & Dimension Rough Boards with Hand Tools {10 Steps}

09-27-2014 11:45 PM by WoodAndShop | 4 comments »

In the above video, and in the below 10 steps, I teach one of the most basic and essential skills in traditional woodworking: how to square, flatten, & dimension your own rough lumber into finished boards. To build quality traditional furniture, you need to start with perfectly flat and square lumber. Some people achieve this with power jointers, planers, and table saws. While the electrical power route is more economical for a commercial woodworking workshop, I prefer the safet...

“The Handplane Book” | Best Traditional Woodworking Books & DVDs

08-20-2014 07:19 PM by WoodAndShop | 2 comments »

In the above video I share another one of my absolute favorite books about traditional woodworking: “The Handplane Book” by Garrett Hack. Read my original blog post here. I hesitated to buy this book because I thought it would just be a small book about someone’s handplane collection, but I finally decided to order it online. I was wrong about this book being slim on information. This book is exceptional and very helpful. Not only does the book have beautiful photographs of h...

Tools tools, I love toys, I mean tools #4: Why I bought two Groz hand planes as my starter planes

08-10-2014 04:00 AM by paxorion | 2 comments »

I thought it would help to take a step back on my hand plane tuning blog posts and provide a little background on my hand plane journey of the past few days. ContextAsk anyone for recommendations on a first hand plane, and you’re bound to get a large number folks recommending looking for a pre-WWII hand plane. Personally I’ve never really thought of that to be a good answer (for me) because I think that there is an implied “cost” (time, effort, and money) involved w...

Tools tools, I love toys, I mean tools #3: Building hand plane tune-up confidence: lapping, lapping, and more lapping

08-09-2014 04:10 AM by paxorion | 3 comments »

After a seeming successful first attempt at sharpening/honing, I decided to finally tune up my Groz bench and block plane. The lapping took the longest part and I went through a good amount of 100 and 120 grit paper flatting the bottoms of both planes. The block plane was significantly worse, taking close to 2 hours to flatten the bottom whereas the #4 took a little over an hour. After the lapping was done, a wipe down and thorough cleaning with mineral spirits cleaned off the metal shavin...

Tools tools, I love toys, I mean tools #2: Hand tools because it made me feel safer, and my first sharpening/honing attempt...

08-08-2014 03:29 AM by paxorion | 3 comments »

I’ll admit that I am more a power tool woodworker than a hybrid (and nowhere close to a hand too user). But the more projects I get under my belt, the more I realize that in order to improve as a wood worker, I’m going to have to get more used to hand tools. In some cases, it is probably safer, and not necessarily slower than power tools. I recently edge glued quite a few short pine scraps, to make them wide enough for a few kids toy projects. After edge jointing the pieces,...
