12-21-2011 07:42 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 10 comments »

Quick post here – 0400 comes awfully early… Here is my rough drawing of how I will lay out my shop. NOTES: ShopVac will be under the bench ShopSmith is questionable at this point, but it’s the only jointer I have right now, so it stays for now Brown rectangles with thick black border are workbenches Restricted area is immovable, lost space The purple area is the lazy susan that will hold the 4 tools as noted If you’ve got ideas, recommendations or ...

Butterfly Dining Table #7: Cutting, Sizing and Framing the Top

12-18-2015 12:21 AM by Guy Dunlap | 9 comments »

In this video, I cut the three pieces that make up the top that totals 8’ when fully expanded. I also show how to install the butterfly hinges for the folding extension.Then I cut corners off and prepare the lumber for the solid wood frame along with making a solid “inlay” detail around the entire top. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To get updates of this build as I go along, please follow me on Instagram – https://instagram.com/guyswoodshop...

The trouble with Yew

02-12-2010 03:10 AM by JuniorJoiner | 11 comments »

I’m not sure how many Lumberjocks are familiar with Pacific Yew(taxus breufolia i think)I first heard of it a few years ago. here on the west coast of Canada it grows. hidden away and rare beyond measure, few if any typical wood suppliers carry it. And what is available is often small and gnarly. Being on the local wood kick. I decided it was a wood for me. Hard and a Rare orange colour, I did not think it could have any drawbacks. Then I tried to find some. Yew, as a wood is as ...

Dovetails aren't the most complicated joinery.

I was browsing Youtube for woodworking and I came across the following series of videos with several methods to joint wood. I thought it might be of interest to some, in particular those that like using hand tools. Enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL07A05F76CA819833

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #8: Finally it is FINISHED!

09-26-2010 10:50 PM by RonPeters | 8 comments »

Ok, I’ve been working on this for about 18 months. A little here and a little there… a piece at a time. It’s finally finished and now I can move on to making instruments. I never built a bench, or anything else – unless you consider that bowl I turned in wood shop 45 years ago? – so there was some learning curve involved.

Step number 4 gets into actually using your new or old traditional woodworking hand tools to create something! But just like a bike a car, or a sword, these tools will work properly and get you where you want to go (e.g. building something beautiful) if you learn how to wield them properly. So check out these videos, and come back for more…I’ll be adding more and more videos over time; beginning with the fundamental tools and moving onto the specialty tools. 4.1 How to Use Hand Planes ...
