How to Make a Hammer Handle

06-12-2017 01:26 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 5 comments »

View on YouTube So hammers are something that we all use and quite frankly there’s as many different ones as there are people in the world. There’s a hammer for every job, and there’s a gorilla somewhere that knows how to use it. To keep it practical, hammers/handles are purely individual taste.

A shop made jig for making face frames with the JessEm 08350 doweling jig

05-25-2017 10:58 PM by Rich | 0 comments »

I was just going to post a few pictures of the jig with the JessEm mounted in it, but since it’s not really intuitive how it’s used, I thought a story through pictures would help. This blog entry will basically be photos with captions that briefly describe what’s being shown. Starting with a brief overview of the JessEm jig. It is unique in that it references from the face of the board, and can be set back from 1/4” to 3-1/2”. It indexes using a dowel pin i...

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)

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.
