Gouge rack #1: gouge rack#1

56 days ago by Michael Anthony Zelonis | 1 comment »

With both ‘Holly’s Jasper’ and the Sawcliffe Green man well under way to getting done, I took a few days out to address an issue that irritates my OCD. Even though my work bench weighs almost 300lbs, it still carries vibration and moves my carefully arranged tools from their place while I work with a mallet. So, here is the answer. The rack holds 21 of my most used gouges, the two angled blocks in the back of the first pic will affix the rack at 12 deg., and they will have a...

getting wood #1: work progress

57 days ago by Lazy_K | 4 comments »

Hi;getting wood out of a log is a lot of work! yes it is wood just sitting there in the log but that doesn’t exactly help for making tables or chairs. so an update:I spent a couple of days making new saw horses to replace the ones that collapsed: here is an old collapsed one and my helper and here are the new ones: I repaired the broken ones back in 1985. they lasted this long. I figure that these new ones will go to my helper in time. and new legs for my hacking stock I m...

I have the opportunist to purchase Maple bowling alley 20 foot sections. I’m curious if anyone has used this material before and if so, for what. Obviously butcher block tops come to mind. $200/section.

In need of Green Hedge Wood

61 days ago by jr7 | 0 comments »

Im new to this site so I hope im not breaking any rules by this post. I would like to know if anyone out there would happen to have some green hedge for sale. Hedge was used quite often in the 50’s and 60’s as fence posts. The green comes from the hedge being in the ground in fairly wet places to my knowledge. Any help would be appreciated. I plan to turn bowls and duck calls out of this wood

starting at wood working

63 days ago by Lazy_K | 4 comments »

Hi all;I’ve been reading blogs, woodworking blogs (go figure . right?) and they all eventually have a list of “what you need to start up” in woodworking. most are on the theme of you only need this $100 dollar saw and this $75 dollar marking gauge and and $ and $ $$$. STOP!!! (insert sound of record scratching hear) just stop. take a deep breath. Think:tools you may already have around the house or apartment, that can also be used to make furniture projects....

Wood Thoughts #10: IKEA and the Workshop (Should Those Words Ever Be in the Same Sentence?)

68 days ago by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 1 comment »

- If you answered “yes” or “maybe” to the above question, please click this link. I returned home to my monastery last week, and boy was I in for quite a shock – the monastery moved without telling you?; changed all the locks?; turned out the lights and pretended no one was home? I only noticed one thing at first, someone had committed the unforgivable sin of utilizing the top of the table saw as a place to water and take care of Easter lilies. After I stopp...

Piping Up #1: What to do with the accumulating scraps

69 days ago by sylinen | 4 comments »

I want to acquaint you with the disease called scrapitis. It’s a chronic condition that manifests itself most commonly in the idle woodworker who is short on funds but long on imagination. It’s chief symptom is an inability to look at a pile of lumber scraps without dreaming up some sort of knickknack or thingamajig to conjure out of the assorted detritus. Sadly, scrapitis is incurable, but it can be treated by the application of tool to wood. I suffer from scrapitis, which has la...
