It Starts With a Workbench #5: Get this thing off the ground... with a vengeance

07-04-2015 10:20 PM by DocTux | 1 comment »

Started off working on my saw horses. I definitely appreciated the advice to build a saw bench, but it was going to be significantly more involved than the extremely basic set of stacking saw horses I did build. Plus it can’t stack, which was a huge detractor. I will likely build one later on, but probably not until I have a functional bench in place. This was the first time I had ever used a handsaw and attempted to do more than a rough cut to fit oversized studs in the back of my truck. It ...

It Starts With a Workbench #3: Project: Get this thing off the ground

06-29-2015 11:43 PM by DocTux | 1 comment »

It seemed so simple when I thought about it, a workbench seemed like the perfect place to start my woodworking hobby, then from there I can easily figure out what tools I need to complete the job. As it turns out, you can’t exactly start with just a workbench. You need to get off the ground before you can get your hobby off the ground. First I really fussed over what type of bench I wanted to make. Well, that wasn’t very fruitful. I WANTED to make a bench that was 92” lon...

It Starts With a Workbench #2: Fuss over tools and the first project

06-29-2015 10:40 PM by DocTux | 7 comments »

Step 1, now we’re really starting on our journey into woodworking. This is when I go, “Oh man. Power tools are super expensive, I think I’ll just stick to hand tools. Plus, that sounds incredibly fun and like a good opportunity to truly challenge myself.” Can you tell that I’m a newbie? What did I even get myself into. Well that was a comforting thought UNTIL I looked at the price of quality hand tools and the true difference between shoddy ones and good ones....

Why buy it when you can make it! #31: I went for some Swedish meatballs, and walked out with a bonus chuckle

01-19-2015 03:46 PM by paxorion | 3 comments »

My 3 year old daughter associates the letter I with 3 things: her name, ice cream, and IKEA. This past weekend, I took her to IKEA to get ice cream, and to cause chaos running around the showroom. Armed with a bag (which was quickly forgotten) she got to work, wrecking a few hours of havoc in the store (and my psyche). About 2 hours in, we got to the dresser section. While I was there, a husband and wife couple were “cordially” debating over the stained or laminate venee...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #47: One man's artsy is another man's fartsy...

10-07-2014 04:47 PM by StumpyNubs | 11 comments »

A closely watched internet auction ended this morning. And by closely watched, I mean a total of five people, including myself, noticed it a few minutes before the end and checked back from time to time to see if it attracted any bids. It didn’t. Maybe it was the thousand dollar starting price that turned away prospective buyers. Or it could have been that the item was a worn out wooden hand plane with an old TV antenna stuck in the end. To be fair, it wasn’t ONLY a worn out wooden hand plane...

12-and-a-half Warnings for New Woodworkers

03-25-2014 12:25 PM by Steve Diogo | 6 comments »

If you’re new to woodworking, or just thinking of starting, then welcome to a world of deep creative satisfaction, personal discovery and the meditative bliss that comes with the sound of a finely tuned hand plane schicking across a piece of finely figured wood. That, and utter frustration, sawdust, splinters, obsession and alienation from polite society. It’s been just a few months since I set out on the same path. I just wanted to build some bookshelves. And today… well...

How the Mustache Defeated the Cyclops, Stumpy's Black Friday Odyssey...

12-01-2013 05:20 PM by StumpyNubs | 8 comments »

Having survived Black Friday at my local Woodcraft last year, I considered myself as brave as any man since Homer’s Odysseus. (That would be Homer of antiquity, not Homer Simpson.) Odee, as his friends may have called him, was headed home after a long day fighting the Trojans when he got lost and decided to go on an Odyssey. I think Odysseus must have been a woodworker. He was tall, muscular, the ladies loved him- he was the Stumpy Nubs of his day. But most of all, he was able to go wherever ...
