More inexpensive shelving

02-05-2011 11:32 PM by devann | 2 comments »

I know, more cheap shelves. Let’s face it, most of us would rather buy tools not shelves. With that in mind here is a shlef that only requires 2×4s, 1/2” plywood, wood screws,& some nuts,bolts, & washers. I have seen quite a few of your workshops out there, And a lot of you have metal buildings with C or Z purlins to columns type metal building construction. So this will be the kind of drawing that I’m posting today. You can apply the same principles to a buildi...

What am I missing? #1: re: tenon cutting and jigs and such.

02-05-2011 04:43 PM by woodklutz | 8 comments »

Why if we can cut a tenon on a table saw router table or band saw with out a jig device do we purchase or make devices to create them?I tseems is so simple with a few carefully measured cuts the job is done. So I ask very seriously why? What am I missing. This question also applies to the myriad of accessories that you are told you need because you discover that if you did not know they existed you would have made it yourself out of necessity from scraps and felt proud that you did. It ...

Ancient Bucket Master Class with Stefang #1: DIY convex plane - so far

02-05-2011 12:30 PM by daltxguy | 6 comments »

I am following Stefang’s master class on building a Nordic bucket using the medieval ways The first steps are to make the tools required to make the bucket. The most important tool is a plane to curve the inside of the staves of the the bucket and in true medieval fashion, this is being done with largely hand tools ( ok, and a bandsaw from well into the future). This blog series is to show my progress of the master class. Anyone can follow along and jump in any time to his c...

Jordan's Project #1: Getting started.

02-01-2011 10:04 AM by Jeff Waggoner | 10 comments »

Getting My Wood. I started looking for a project soon after internationals last year. I started by browsing projects on fine woodworking and a small portable writing desk caught my eye. I showed my dad and we contacted the man that built it. He said that he didn’t have any plans for it because he had constructed it from a similar piece. From there we started researching variations. We found a site with over a hundred in many different forms. A tri-fold stood out to me because of its...

Necklace Box #1: The first couple months

01-28-2011 06:15 PM by superstretch | 3 comments »

In September, I started coming up with ideas for my wife’s Christmas present. The short of it is—I haven’t finished it yet. Fortunately, it was a minor part of all that I was getting/making her, so she didn’t go without this Christmas. Part of my problem is that I’m still a greenhorn and purpleheart is a jerk to work with. Tearout, checking, and pitting is something I’ve had to deal with non-stop. For the past two weeks, my shop (no heating) has been bel...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #6: Last Class of Level 1 :-(

01-28-2011 07:30 AM by Mark Shymanski | 4 comments »

Well the Level 1 is done and no I didn’t get my nail tray finished; I need about another hour to get it all together including fixing my myriad ‘learning opportunities’:-) I had a chance to use a rabbetting plane! and a brace and bit. I am very impressed with how easily these tools worked, I had anticipated that they would be much less effective for a lot more effort. I will be keeping my eyes open for good garage sales and auctions for more hand tools now. Overall (...

Roubo from a weed, or how I have come to hate red oak

01-20-2011 05:20 PM by Jon Spelbring | 3 comments »

Like many jocks out there, I’m in the process of building a new workbench. It will be pretty close to the Roubo that Chris Schwarz built, but sadly, my top will not be made out of pretty (if punky) cherry. No, I was fortunate(?) to have a supply of very thick red oak planks to work with. The top is made up of 3 pieces at 7.5” wide by 4” thick by 7’ long. It’s a beast! The legs are from the same stock, trimmed to 3”x5”. I’ve finished cutt...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #3: I made it on time today!!!!

01-19-2011 06:38 AM by Mark Shymanski | 3 comments »

Hello All, Well I finally made it on time today, even though it meant we had to hurriedly eat at A&W tonight :-) Although I wasn’t as early as I had planned as when I got to the College I started driving up their steep (and as it turns out very very slippery drive way) where someone was letting off a passenger about halfway up (I thought this was kind of odd, why not just let them off at the top where the buildings are) so I stopped because I wasn’t sure if there was enou...

Rogue Fine Living #1: Natural Lines- the work of Jeffro Uitto

01-19-2011 12:34 AM by Rogue | 0 comments »

If you’re a crab or a seagull on the Washington coast, there is one guy that has just become a part of the coastal scenery. His rugged figure just blends into the coastline. Blending in is helped by the fact that he’s usually lugging around a piece of drift wood that is commonplace on the inlet near Tokeland. His bent form under the weight of the wet wood perfectly mimics the shape of the gnarled piece he carries. (Read the rest of the artical at http://roguefineliving.com/)
