The Beginner's Hand Tool Kit (Some thoughts)

05-20-2017 10:02 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 4 comments »

View on YouTube The video covers mostly the tool side of things but I’d like to talk a bit about the concepts behind some of the first tools you buy. This is mostly just my opinion and my experience speaking (which isn’t much compared to some!). My main reason for the list in the video is as follows. You want to buy tools that help you develop confidence as well as skills. Buying an axe as your first woodworking tool is something that I recommend each budding woodworker do. ...

Shop Chips #1: Advice on Vises! (For beginners)

05-18-2017 05:46 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 0 comments »

View on YouTube so this’ll kind of be my “vlog within a blog” sort of thing. For this week I wanted to talk about something that the internet seems to complicate for alot of people and that’s vises. I cover it in the video but suffice to say that the best vise that you can possibly get is the one that has all the parts, the jaws move smoothly and freely, isn’t missing any parts, and most importantly fits in the space that you have alloted for work. In ...

https://youtu.be/E_IH6icdItI In this video, I put a top on top of a set of drawers headed for the trash. The top is plywood, and I clear coated it as well. I ended up stacking it on top of some filing cabinets that I ripped of a desk that was being thrown away. both units have plywood tops.If you enjoyed this video, then consider subscribing to the channel.

ATTN OKLAHOMA WOODWORKERS!!

05-10-2017 02:49 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...

Dust Collection #1: Remote Controller for my DC system

05-08-2017 04:33 PM by Tim | 0 comments »

This is a remote I built for my dust collection system. I only wired in one 240v circuit to my garage a few years ago, never expecting to need another. Vice installing a second circuit, I decided to maximize the existing circuit while designing my remote controller for my dust collection system. This site is where my inspiration came from. I already had the 120v remote, which was being used for my original HF 1hp blower. Now, my DC remote controller is using a DPDT 240v relay that requi...

Working around the house #1: Restoring Old Hand Tools

05-04-2017 12:26 PM by ofthemound | 4 comments »

Hello again! So this is where I am at in my journey of woodworking. Over the winter I decided to invest in older, high quality hand tools. Now I have a nice set of hand tools to work with. I always heard the common phrase, ”They don’t make them like they use to!” I never really thought much of it till I was holding two Stanley Bailey hand planes, the oldest being 100+ years old. Still solid to my amazement! I spent time to restore my jack and fore hand planesĀ and now I have ...
