12-and-a-half Warnings for New Woodworkers

125 days ago 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...

239 days ago 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 ...

When a woodworker wants to make applesauce...

281 days ago by CueballRosendaul | 7 comments »

My neighbor had an apple tree loaded with fruit so I decided to make applesauce and can it for the winter. Since I don’t have one of those crank apple peelers, I decided to make my own power peeler with the drill and a spade bit. I clamped the cordless drill down to the counter, and used a spade bit to hold the apples. I went through this full bag of apples in about 45 minutes. Watch the YouTube Video!

Safety (or the lack thereof) #4: OOPS, there she goesssss

343 days ago by PASs | 5 comments »

Was building a pergola in the back 40 for a Koi Pond.Mostly salvaged deck lumber.Was shooting 3” framing nails into the top when the gun slipped just a little.I could tell by the lack of recoil that something went wrong.As soon as I moved the gun and saw the ding in the side of the wood I knew what happened…the gun moved enough to shoot the nail past the wood, at about an 80 degree up angle.I counted to about 4, and heard the nail hit in the street on the other side of the block.S...

Safety (or the lack thereof) #3: DADO BLADES CAN'T CUT 1 INCH OF HARDWOOD IN ONE PASS

345 days ago by PASs | 14 comments »

I’m a BONEHEAD.I like my Dado blades.But they have their limitations.Especially pulling the blade through on your radial arm saw.Ripping a 3/4 inch dado 1 inch deep in a piece of hardwood tougher than oak (I have mallets made from this stuff) exceeds their abilityWhen you try anyway the chippers decide to group together in a show of rebellion and the teeth get mad enough to fly off the handle…er…blade. I knew better.I was in a rush.The fix was $75 at saw stop getting new ...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #40: Stumpy Nubs: Troll Hunter (They taste like chicken)

469 days ago by StumpyNubs | 15 comments »

I am not just an somewhat overrated woodworker with an endless supply of bad jokes and a troubling affinity for blue denim shirts. I am also a naturalist, a man who spends his weekends in the wild observing exotic creatures and documenting their strange habits. My expeditions take me all over the worldwide web, to the lurking places of the most despicable of predators: the Woodworking Trolls. I’ve spent years among their kind, frequenting their natural habitat on woodworking message boa...

Hand tool tips and tricks #15: Dead Blow Mallet, to Mar or Not to Mar?

480 days ago by RGtools | 11 comments »

I don’t know ab dead blow mallet both in and out of the shop. I just find all kinds of rough tasks for it on the farm (and sometimes in the shop). The problem is that I also use the thing for disassembling joints the those rough tasks that chew up the mallet face can translate to dented work. The solution is simple, mark one face for Rough work and one for Fine. How you mark your mallet is up to you, but I liked this. Problem Solved.
