Pics will be on in a few min- will edit when I’ve got em all, hang in there ;) After making my small cherry smoother which worked great, I decided I wanted to up my game and build a more traditional styled plane. I also wanted it to be toted and have a harder wood for the sole of the plane. I chose to use cherry again because it’s what I had and it is very beautiful. For the sole I chose purpleheart- mostly because its what I had, but its also extremely hard and it is actua...
Create a shooting board that doesn’t cut just at one angle. Using some scrap wood and a couple of bolts you can create a shooting board that cuts multiple angles. Check out the video HERE! Sorry about the “scratchy effect”. Something happened while uploading and i can’t figure out how to fix it.
I’ve recently started playing with screen capturing and will be filming some of my sketchup sessions. I’m also in the learning phase of sketchup so any help, comments, suggestions are appreciated. Check out Part 1 here and then Part 2. As always, please subscribe for more great videos.
This workbench has came a long way. Started off by ripping down 2×8’s for the legs and the stretchers, then hand to mortise out the legs, create half blind dovetails and I’m finally at the top of the bench. In this video I show how I chose to mount the top of the bench so I can keep everything portable. I also cleaned out the shop a bit and placed the bench in its resting spot. Still lots of cleaning to do in the shop, but the bench is ready to go! Check out the video on YouT...
I have finally got the tenons cut. I went ahead and assembled the base. Click here for the video on YouTube.
I decided to make a card scraper out of a thinner material using a handsaw from a yard sale for $1. I can tell a big difference in the flex from the handsaw blade and the table saw blade. I’ll be using both for a bit and seeing which one I like better. Click here for the video on YouTube. And please subscribe. Edit: I can’t embed video on here at the moment, I will keep trying.
THROW YOUR SANDPAPER AWAY!!! Ok, so don’t throw your sandpaper away, but cut down on the amount of dust in your shop by making this quick and easy tool. A card scraper is also very useful when working around knots in wood. In this video I show you how to take an old, out of service saw blade and turn it into something useful again. Thanks for viewing, comments welcome, and as always, please subscribe to my Youtube Channel.
I am one step closer to the finish of my workbench. I show steps to cut a beveled mortise. If the video isn’t working, click here to view it on YouTube.
Finish off the simple built router table from last week with a table fence that cost just around $10.
In this segment I assemble the right and left legs. I go over the half-blind dovetail and also the bridal joint. Thanks for checking it out!
