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 ...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #10: Dovetails

04-15-2017 11:23 PM by Ron Aylor | 12 comments »

Dovetails - I think the boiled linseed oil and sunbathing has created a rather nice patina, thus far. How about you?  As the frame rests quietly in the sun, I start laying out the dovetails on the desk. I like to use a mirror to keep an eye on the backside of the board. This helps me keep things nice and square!  Pins first, tails first … whatever! I can do both, but I find it a bit easier to go with tails first. So, I line things up and scribe the location of the tails onto the pin boa...

Mysteries from the 116 year old tool box. #1: Timber Framing Tools

03-28-2016 04:52 PM by LanternLightFarm | 1 comment »

Last fall I received a call from my father inquiring if I wanted my great-grandfather’s tool box; all he knew about it was that it was extremely heavy, locked, and had been sitting in the corner as long as he could remember. Jumping at the chance to own a piece of family history I told him I would take it and a few weeks later it arrived to my garage via cargo trailer. Escorted by my father and uncle we managed to unload and extremely heavy trunk that seemed to weigh in the hundreds of ...

Archive Videos #1: Sweedish woodworking and misc.

07-15-2009 01:47 PM by dryhter | 3 comments »

I was at a blogsite http://villagecarpenter.blogspot.com/ and followed a link to some archived video. I spent the better part of a day watching and marveling over these glimpse into the past. I think it is the fact that these were utilitarian items made for everyday use and although some artistry was involved most important was that the piece function. These craftsmen developed the skills to economically produce a no frill product. If you can take the time to watch you will notice that there...

Hand Tool Reference Guide for the new LJ

08-10-2012 01:45 PM by carguy460 | 3 comments »

I’ve been a member of this site for 219 days, according to my little stat tracker under my name, but I still consider myself a “New LJ”. Over the last 219 days I’ve learned more about tools and woodworking than I have in my 28 years of life, and I am extremely grateful to everyone who freely shares their knowledge. I’ve decided that I will take the hand tool path of woodworking for 3 reasons – 1) cost of machinery, 2) space needed for machinery, and 3) its ...

Roubo #1: Wherein our protagonist drinks the crazy juice, and decides to use 4/4 lumber.

03-08-2009 04:19 AM by Jon3 | 4 comments »

So brief background is that about a 18 months ago, I bought a load of lumber off ebay. While there, I ended up also buying 350 BF of flatsawn white ash for $100. I figured, even if it ends up being ‘test’ pieces and shop projects, it would still be worth it. Fast forward to recently, and I’ve been planning to build a new bench, and I’ve pretty much decided on a Roubo. I picked up the lovely Benchcrafted tail/wagon vise, a german bench screw, and some holdfasts. ...

Hand tool revalations #1: the revolution has begun

01-08-2012 03:27 AM by Andrew | 4 comments »

It all started with the purchase of a stanley #48, the tongue and groove plane. I saw it on Roy Underhills show the WoodWright. So it is really his fault. Anyway I have slowly and sometimes quickly started accumulating hand tools. So now its time to use them, I chose to make a table out of Pine for a friend. Pine is soft and should be fairly forgiving of mistakes or improper techniques. This is only the beginning, I figure if I can get comfortable with the hand tools, then future pro...
