My hand tools #1: Stanley 66 Universal Hand Beader

06-27-2008 02:43 AM by Al Navas | 6 comments »

From my blog entry: A-beading I will go… I had a dilemma to solve: How to decorate the apron on a small stool for granddaughter #2. She uses a little stool to sit while playing the guitar, during her guitar lessons. I don’t have any power tools that would give me what I wanted: I really, really wanted a narrow groove and a bead on the bottom edge of the aprons. Finally, the little light went on, and out came the solution: My Stanley 66 Universal hand beader! I pur...

Hand Planes - A Surprise Pleasure

06-07-2008 09:09 PM by Russel | 12 comments »

When I was a youngster in what they now refer to as “mid-century”, my father had a hand plane. I had no idea what kind and no idea what it was supposed to be used for, but I used it to shape my PineWood Derby car for my cub scouts race. (In case you’re wondering, I didn’t win, place or show. Just barely made it down the track.) Until recently, that was my only experience with a hand plane. Since hanging about LumberJocks I’ve read all kinds of stuff about ...

Hand Cutting Dovetails

03-25-2008 11:11 PM by teenagewoodworker | 20 comments »

Hey everyone, This podcast is on hand cutting dovetails. I’ve had a few problems with some things in my printer table so it will take longer than i expected to get the third episode out. I figured i would add this one so i am not podcast less for another week or two. I think that everyone will like it. I had originally planned on having this and other videos on the same podcast for like a library of different joints but those are not filmed yet. So i hope that you like it and i hop...

Ponderings #9: Saws Aplenty

01-28-2008 04:59 PM by Tomcat1066 | 9 comments »

Recently, I’ve been asking myself, “Self? How many saws do you need, and why type of saws do you need?” Now, obviously, I’ll never have enough saws. However, there should be a minimum set that a hand tool woodworker who’s going “old school” should have, I’m sure we can all agree. Now, I’ve got two crosscut hand saws, a Disston D-8 and a Norvell-Shapleigh’s Diamond Edge that looks like a Harvey Peace P-26 Crosscut. I also have ...

I Have a Dream

01-22-2008 11:04 PM by Eric | 8 comments »

I’ve never been a woodworker. Shoot, I was never even a handy man. For the first 35 of my 38 years, I never owned a tool more “tooly” than a hammer. So why do I have a dream of one day running a shop making furniture and teaching woodworking? I think part of it is just from the excitement of discovering a new hobby. Another part of it is from living in a country where woodworking doesn’t exist as a hobby. Not only is woodworking not a hobby, it doesn’t even seem to be a job. I have yet ...

My "Starter Set"

01-18-2008 04:27 PM by Eric | 8 comments »

[Taken from my Adventures in Woodworking blog, August 2007] Before heading back to SE Asia, I needed to accumulate the bare minimum tools needed for woodworking by hand. The class I attended at Homestead Heritage recommends 10 tools in particular, and this is where I started: combination square set of chisels strong layout knife combination marking/mortise gauge small dovetail or gent’s saw tenon saw small hammer for joint assembly solid joiner’s mallet smoothing plane...

My Journey So Far

01-16-2008 12:07 PM by Eric | 4 comments »

[Taken from my Adventures in Woodworking blog, August 2007] A few years ago, I came to the realization that I didn’t have any significant hobbies or leisure that did not involve the computer. This is not good. So one day, I brainstormed with my wife as to what hobby I should take up, and ended up choosing woodworking. I think the main reason was that I did not consider myself a handyman, and wanted to be able to build or fix things with my own two hands. I began my hobby while sti...

First Shop #1: What I have and What's Next!

11-30-2007 05:13 AM by YooperCasey | 11 comments »

Hello and welcome to my first Blog! The intent of this blog is to track my entrance into the world of woodworking. There seems to be a gap between the people who are just getting into woodworking, and those who have been enjoying the hobby for ten years. So, this is my attempt to fill some of that gap. You’ll get to watch me make mistakes, buy some bad tools, and hopefully you’ll learn from my mistakes. First off is my mission statement, the “why am I doing this?”...
