Portable Carving Board

09-14-2017 08:07 AM by Druid | 13 comments »

I’ve been thinking about creating a Portable Carving Board that would act as a third hand to hold some types of carvings as I work on them. This would be for portable use when I carve while away from home. Normally, I have used an inexpensive plastic cutting board (typically used as a kitchen chopping board) placed across my legs, or on a table to protect the tabletop. One problem with the plastic board is that the carving is free to slide around on the slippery surface, so I thought th...

Delta 46-715 Lathe Hack

09-08-2017 07:26 PM by denverdan | 2 comments »

My lathe has been working great since I rebuilt the pulley system with one exception. Sometimes it’s really hard to take the chuck off of the spindle. On the original pulley there were indexing holes and a indexing plunger lock that would lock the spindle allowing the chuck to come off after use. Since my pulleys didn’t have the holes there wasn’t a way to lock the spindle. Not a huge issue, but kind of a PIA. Normally I would use a couple wrenches and eventually it...

Building a better woodshop #4: bandsaw inserts holder

09-05-2017 08:37 AM by Sodabowski | 0 comments »

Hi folks,This completed project dates back to June 2016, I didn’t find the time to post so here comes.This is my bandsaw, small entry level but it really does the job with proper blades, of which I have several sizes and pitches. So I change inserts quite often. The factory insert was a crap piece of plastic, which I’m not going to show (too shameful), but here is one of my shopmade inserts in place: And so I finally made the jump and built this blank inserts holder. ...

Musing of an Old Geezer #4: Play it Forward!

09-01-2017 10:10 PM by GnarlyErik | 3 comments »

When I was a kid around┬áseven or eight, entertainment choices were a lot slimmer then than now. Like many boys back then, I would gather a few scraps of wood, ‘borrow’ my dad’s hammer, get my hands on a few nails and ‘make’ something. No design, just start nailing things together with a decidedly nebulous idea of what I was actually making. But, everyone has to start somewhere right?. Today it seems that many kids that age are obsessed with iPad and computer g...

Restoring The Machine Plow Plane (Kikai Shakuri Kanna)

08-22-2017 01:16 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 1 comment »

View on YouTube If you haven’t noticed I am a big fan of the Japanese methods and thoughts behind woodworking. And as such I do alot of reading on the topic and ever since I saw a drawing of one of these planes in Toshio Odate’s book on tools I have wanted one very badly. I’d wager that each craftsman has his favorite tool, something that he just enjoys for no reason other than “he simply does”. this tool is it for me. The challenge of it I find invigorating. W...
