Momi-Giri #1: Illustration and Introduction

05-21-2018 07:49 AM by aerialcopper | 1 comment »

Hello everyone! I am a new member to lumberjocks, despite having browsed often since 2011 when Roy Underhill inspired me to start woodworking with hand tools in my dorm room at the time… I filled out my profile page if you enjoy walls of text or want to know what I’m doing here now. In short, I’m focused on illustration and design with the intent to spread knowledge about hand tools. There is a lot of traditional hand tool knowledge that bears repeating, yet a lot has...

Shop stuff #124: Roubo build Part 1A

This is a re edit of a video I did last year. The original was over 45 minutes long and I wasn’t happy with it at all. This one is only about 10 minutes and covers milling the slabs out of the tree with the chain saw…...freehand. View on YouTube

The One Minute Workbench 3.0 #1: The design

05-16-2018 06:46 AM by Sanderguy777 | 1 comment »

To paint or not to paint? So I am wanting to build a version of the one minute work bench 2.0. If you look that up on, YouTube you can see a video of what I’m talking about but basically, it holds a table saw, air compressor and a mitre saw in the table saw out feed table. My version will be only be about 4 feet long and 3 feet wide to fit my available space. I want the table saw to be the main thing but I also need space for my miter saw and since I have a tiny air compressor, wh...

Big cabinet for the new home #3: Design change, big dado setup, rabbets and an oops.

05-13-2018 01:55 AM by Lalen | 0 comments »

Design change. More difficult but I think this one looks much better. Primarily changed up the door design to go inset with an upper and lower cabinet and with more glass panes. Went from 6 to 12 doors. We still haven’t decided on the detail for drawer fronts. Crown molding will be more ornate. Compare to the original. I was really concerned about getting the interior dados lined up for the sides and back. I knew it wouldn’t go together well if they weren...

DIY Jigs / How-to Woodworking #5: Magnetic Japanese Handsaw Guide

05-12-2018 06:42 PM by Humus Workshop | 6 comments »

Hi there! The nature of the project is so simple that I do not even need to upload so many photos, with just one is enough. The results, to be concise, is that this little jig has been very simple to do it and very effective at the same time. As a detail I can mention that I have covered the corners with a 1 mm acrylic sheet, this makes the blade does not touch directly the magnets to does not loose the alignment. In the following video you can watch my step by step to do it: https:...

Shop stuff #123: A Cute Sander Jig

05-11-2018 09:17 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I have been meaning to make this for quite a while now. I saw a video from Chris Cute that reminded me to get it done. I have use for it coming up and it ought to come in handy. I had fun putting this together. Not much measuring involved and made from left overs. I just found what fit and put it together. The plan has been in my head for a while. I wanted something that was sturdy, yet easy to remove the sander from it. The ability to clamp it to the bench was thought of as I built ...

Project design visualization

05-08-2018 04:04 AM by OG51 | 5 comments »

We are living in a technological wondrous time. You hit buttons on machines and art pieces make themselves. In the old days I would put pencil to paper and sketch out a rough drawing and then pull out graph paper and start drawing my plans. Always tiny little gotchas where I failed to account for a piece part sticking out here or there. Today we can just spin up the squirrels in the ole’ computer and start digitally visualizing projects. And it only takes months to years to learn ...

Restoring a ‘59 unisaw #1: From rusty to almost done and thoughts. Add other goodies.

05-07-2018 02:51 AM by TheFridge | 24 comments »

Picked it up this almost complete unisaw (missing miter gauge. Meh) off Craigslist for 450$ from a feller. With goose egg, dust cover, and extra 36” bies fence thrown in for free :) sold the jet lock for 50$. Have since acquired a 52” unifence missing a part or 2 but in good shape to use. Has a 2HP 3ph motor so I picked up a VFD for 80$ After selling off the other 2. While I’m at it :) Have since picked up a barely used performax 16/32 drum sander for 250$ and 420...
