Woodworker's Auction #2

06-19-2012 09:17 PM by natesd | 1 comment »

The end date for my Dad’s auction is a little less than a week away (June 25). Every time I look at listing on the auction sight I can’t believe how much stuff there is. I said in my first blog about this auction that “all” his tools and remaining stock of lumber was up for sale. That isn’t quite true my brother and I have kept a few tools and a stock of wood for our own use in years to come. But it’s hard to believe that what we have kept is maybe a fourth...

Custom Desk #1: Curved Dovetailed Drawers

04-12-2008 02:57 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 17 comments »

Willie asked yesterday if I could explain how I make dovetails on curved drawers. I may have just made it more confusing than it needs to be. I was able to find a few photos of making a drawer for a desk I built. I hope this helps. Lee

The New Workbench #1: Description of Bench

11-26-2010 07:42 PM by therookie | 6 comments »

So I started getting into woodworking and bought a hand plane. So as soon as I got home I wanted to use it, so I put a peice of wood in my vise and started planeing. Five minutes later, my bench was four feet farther forward than it originally started. So I moved it back and kept going. Well I have done that for the past year and a half, and have decided enough is enough. So while I was in school I designed a Work Bench. Here are the specs on the bench:1. The bench is four feet deep, six feet...

Hand tool revalations #2: Stanley No. 48, new to me

01-11-2012 05:25 AM by Andrew | 6 comments »

The top, I decided to assemble this with tongue and groove joinery, I have a Stanley 48, this is the plane that started the madness.it has 2 cutters, and a pivoting fence. With the fence one direction it cuts a groove, swing it 180 degrees and it cuts the tongue. The plane will center on 7/8” thicknessed wood, but one tip… make a decision, either the fence is always on the face of the peice or the back, and stick with it. If you flip back and forth, it will cause the face of y...

From a 200 year old ruin to a workshop, a 3 year journey... #7: Finally some wood....

05-10-2013 08:09 AM by Serradura | 6 comments »

I don’t know what the bigger job was, making the wooden wall for the second floor, or getting the timber up to the building sight. Our street was made hundreds of years ago when the only way of transport was a donkey or in the case of being rich and noble, a horse. Even though the Templar Knights were thinking big, they never could have imagined huge trucks, cranes and bulldozers. I had to go and pick up the wood myself at my supplier and it took 4 rides with my (Iveco) van to get from ...

Secret Dovetails: a bottom for the box

04-20-2014 05:33 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Almost got this box about sized up. Some tweaking at the corners, maybe. Time to add a bottom? Needs a groove made in the sides of the box, so A Plough plane to cut some 1/4” by 1/4” grooves. Plane just MIGHT be a tad older than me? I had a piece of pine scrap, almost the right sizes for the box. needed a rebate around the edges, though So, a Wards #78 set to take a bit of the top, er, bottom of the panel. Seems I had the panel a might too smooth and shiny. ...

Planes, a craftsman #4 that needs the rust knocked off it, a stanley handyman #4 ready to be used, supposedly, bou...

Work Shop Organization #2: Power Tool Storage Update

01-02-2015 11:14 AM by Nate66 | 3 comments »

After drawing the plans, I went to the store to purchase the lumber to build the storage box. Had to make a few substitutions due to the price of lumber here in England. Instead of using ply, I settled for MDF. Still quite expensive but nothing near the price of ply or pine. Anyway, I will post pictures of the work in progress.

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #13: Cut tenons, make mortise jigs

03-30-2015 12:38 AM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

Whew, my workweek is finally over and now I can have some fun. I’ve been thinking all week about today, particularly what I still need to get to push this project along. I needed a jig to cut the mortises, and I was looking at pattern bits and I came away with an education. Top bearing straight cut pattern bits are expensive. I didn’t want to spend that much so I went to woodcraft last week when I bought my last pieces of wood for the leg and rail, and picked up a guide bushing fr...
